Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer Review, Swatch

Hello Everyone,

I have used a primer ages ago and when it broke me out, I was scared of using primers and stayed away from them. As most of the primers are meant for Oily skin, I had this notion that they are made for oily skin only but after years of seperation I wanted to give primers another shot. So, this time after much conviction, I opted for Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer.

Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer Review


Product Claims:

  • Lightweight primer smoothes and softens skin to create the perfect canvas.
  • Reduces the appearance of pores and fine lines.
  • Wear alone or under foundation.
  • Award winning and oil free, talc free, fragrance free, paraben free primer.

Price:- Rs.1250 for 27ml

Shelf Life:- 2 years from the Mfg date.

Packaging:- Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer comes in a round glass bottle packaging with a pump dispenser and a plastic cap to keep the opening germ free. I like the packaging as it makes it easy to control the amount and also I can see how much is left in the bottle. The glass bottle makes it prone to breakage in case dropped but otherwise it is easy to use and travel with.

My experience with Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer:-

Texture: Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer is a creamy-white colored primer with a medium consistency which is not runny or liquidy but has a soft gel like feeling which emulsifies a bit when spread and with few more strokes disappears completely into the skin.

Formula: The formula doesn’t feel heavy on skin and it doesn’t have that super silky, slippery finish like most of the Silicon primers do rather has a soft satiny finish which feels extremely comfortable.

Performance: Revlon Perfecting Primer reduces the appearance of pores and makes the foundation glide smoothly on the skin and blend easily into the skin. It has smoothens out lines and gives a soft even texture to the skin. It has a soft matte finish and not that drying matte that feels uncomfortable on dry skin. I need 2-3 pumps of this primer to cover my face and neck well.

Staying Power: It makes the foundation last really longer, my make up looks fresh and face stays shine free for good 7-8 hours, though I could notice slight shine on my nose after 4-5 hours.

Tip: Moisturize your skin with a light-weight primer before hand to ensure smooth and easy application and no dry patches on skin

    I tried this at the counter before purchasing the MUA primer, but as you mentioned the Revlon primer did not turn up well on my super oily skin. I wish they make some primer for oily skin as well.

      Yeah,.. it gets shiny too soon on the nose.. but I am happy to have finally found something for my dry skin! 😀 .. how is MUA primer working for you?

    I am using a colorbar one, nothing like a fav just using it. This sounds good might try if I get on off . Lovely review 🙂

    • poonamMarch 12, 2015 at 12:03 PM - Reply

      I guess colorbar works better than this for oily skin… as it controls shine for long!

      Thanks Swati.. you can try this in winters when want to switch to something lighter.. 🙂

      If you think you gotta try one in summers do give this a shot.. it is light weight and behaves well on skin! 🙂

    Kryolan ultra underbase works pretty well for dry skin. My skin gets a little flaky in winters. It worked pretty well for me then. But I dont know if it will work for my summer oily skin.. but thats just the extreme behaviors of my skin..
    Lovely review.. n I totally love the pictures u click for your posts..

      Thanks for the recommendation Amisha.. I am surely planning to do a Krylon Haul will keep this under base in mind!! 😀

      My skin gets a little oily on T zone but cheeks remain dry so I guess i have to mix 2 types of primer to make it look fresh and matte! 😀

      Glad you liking them dear.. :-* :-*
