Revlon PhotoReady Blushes

Thursday, July 19, 2012


I saw these Revlon PhotoReady blushes a few months ago on a blog and fell in love. They finally arrived in Canada a few weeks ago (I purchased mine from Wal-Mart).


Naturally I had to get all three colours: Coral Reef (coral), Flushed (pink), Pinched (peach).

What I like...
- The colours look super bright in the pot, but they're quite wearable. 

- They blend very easily and apply naturally (i.e. sheer but buildable)

- There's a lot of product for $10.


What I don't like...
- It's not a stain, it just sits on top of the skin.

- It sometimes has a slick feeling on the skin. While it looks natural on the cheeks, you can definitely feel something's there if you brush your hand across your face.

- It transfers, albeit very minimally.
- It doesn't have amazing lasting power. It lasts about 5ish hours on my combination skin.

Overall, I really enjoy these blushes. They’re easy to apply and I love the colours, especially Coral Reef. I use my Real Techniques Stippling brush to apply it. I often use them on their own, but sometimes when I’m feeling crazy, I will “set” it with a powder blush on top.

Have you tried these blushes yet? They’re a little difficult to find here in Canada. I have yet to see them at any of my local drugstores.

Hope you’re having a lovely day! x

  1. I saw these when I picked up the Kissable Lip Stain Balms and they looked gorgeous. But it was disappointing when I swatched them because they have that slightly oily residue...on my skin it'll just go super greasy :/

    1. Yeah that was one of the things I didn't like about it! :( Fortunately I have dry/normal skin on my cheeks, so it holds well.

  6. I'm not a big fan of cream blushes because I can never blend them well on my face. But these look so nice! I may want the pink one!

  7. What's the texture of these blushes. Cream? They look kind of like the Stila Convertible Colour blushes, but I never thought to apply those with a brush!
