Revlon Beyond Natural Foundation

This product isn’t exactly new in Singapore, but I’ve only recently got my hands on it, and have been testing it out since I got back from TW.

I have to admit, I was initially quite skeptical about this product, as I wasn’t sure how a white liquid foundation would be able to match itself to my skintone. But since I got this from Ulta.com during its BOGO sale for Revlon products, I figure what’s there to lose. But I was quite pleasantly surprised!

I was debating between 230 – Medium, or 220 Medium Light when placing my order, and ended up with 230 – Medium, which turned out to be a pretty good choice. I think normally I would have been a 220 – Medium Light, however, my sojourn to TW had me turning a shade darker due to the sunny weather and amount of time spent outdoors. Therefore, 230 – Medium did match me quite well when I first applied it.

See what I mean about the white liquid foundation? I had my doubts when I first sqeeuzed it out the tube.

But with a little blending… Lo and behold! It matches! Betcha can’t tell where the foundation is…

Pros
Blendability: Really easy – It’s quite runny and liquidified, so no trouble blending. I’ve tried applying with both my fingers as well as a duo-fiber brush, and I have to say I love the effect from using the brush! It looks more even and airbrushed.

Texture: Light – It felt pretty lightweight and very natural on my skin, not heavy or thick at all.

Shade: 230 – Medium was a pretty good match for me since I got tanner from TW, but once that fades, I think 220 – Medium Light might suit more.

SPF: With SPF 15 thrown in, its adequate enough to skip sunblock unless you need to spend lots of time outdoors

Coverage: Light/Medium – Looks natural and covers up minor blemishes and slightly uneven skintone, but a concealor would be needed for anything beyond.

Cons
Oil Control: Not too great on it’s own, shine was detected within 2-3 hours, but it’s been really warm and humid lately, so my face has been extra extra oily.

Oxidation:
This oxidized on me by midday, making me look just a tad darker than when first applied in the morning.

Conclusion
This is a foundation worth picking up and I might get 220 – Medium Light to try when I return to my normal shade when my tan fades.. =P
