My Experience with Revlon Photoready Insta-Fix Make Up Spf 20 Medium Beige:
Starting off with the packaging, the foundation comes in a swivel stick format. The shade name and number is mentioned at the bottom of the stick. The cap is transparent with the name of the product. There was plastic protective shield when new. Over all I feel this stick foundations are easy to use and carry. But they are not hygienic if you apply directly, so wiping off the tip with a wet tissue would be a good thing to keep the product clean in the long run.
The texture of the foundation is light considering it is in stick format. I was expecting it to be thick and heavy; on the contrary it feels lightweight on the skin and if blended well, I tend to forget I have something on my face. I lightly moisturize my skin with a gel-cream before applying the foundation which makes the application smoother and easier.
The blending is seamless and there is little effort in the process. Concealer application is optional as the coverage is medium to buildable. Going over the blemishes twice would give a natural finish to the look; though for stubborn marks and absolutely flawless skin, concealer would be required. I really like the fact that there is no funny smell to it which is pretty common.
The staying power is awesome; it stayed on my face till I removed it in 6-7 hours without oxidizing a bit; with minimal touch up with a compact focusing on the oily areas. One more aspect worth mentioning would be, it works pretty well with finger tips, and so if you are yet to invest on a foundation brush, you can delay it a bit further. For dry skin beauties a little bit of extra moisturisation is required, so that it doesn’t look flat and dry on the skin. Sadly only 4 shades are available, so it might be slightly difficult to find the right match.
