After the success I had with Revlon Photo Ready Foundation, I was eager to try Revlon’s Photo Ready Compact Makeup. It looked promising, and I thought it might be handy to have a purse version of this foundation. But it’s not your usual run of the mill compact makeup. Rather it has a liquefying screen which turns the product from cream to liquid for application. In hindsight, the words “liquefying screen” may have been a red flag.
It’s hard for me to really evaluate this as a foundation because I had such a hard time getting the product out. You really have no choice but to use the sponge that comes with the compact, which I reluctantly did. It’s not that I have beef with the sponge, it’s just a bacteria magnet and I don’t like the idea of slathering the same applicator over my face day after day.
Ultimately, I think there are inherent flaws with the idea of a liquefying screen. I’d like to see that go away. Until then, this product is a “leave it.” Anyone else have any experience with it?
