I tried the new Revlon candid foundation in Vanilla! I was worried about trying it out as I am unable to wear foundation usually. My Face is very sensitive and highly acne prone.I have issues with noticeable blackheads, large pores, some pimples, combination oily\dry skin, dark under eyes, and the worst a scar that took 26 stiches to fix across my forehead! I used this daily along with the candid concealer and fave powder. I put it on every morning before work. I was surprised at how well it matched my skin tone! Perfectly blends and none of those horrid make-up lines or smears. My face looked airbrushed I was so excited to show off my new look! I went to work and quite a few people commented on how I looked well rested and my face was a lot brighter today. They just didnt know I had new make up on that covered my dark circles! Even my spouse commented on how my face looked clear and even! I finally found a make up that works for my difficult skin! Highly reccomend at least trying it! « less

Wouldn't repurchase unless on sale

I applied this with a sponge because a brush was a nightmare. The coverage is super sheer regardless. I have rosacea and acne scarring and this didn't cover unless I layered it. When I layered it, I got medium coverage. I don't over saturate my sponge either. This can cling to dry patches and look cakey. For me, my dry area is around the creases of the nostrils and it would cling to it and this is prior to powdering. I have to set this with a powder because it has poor lasting time. I'd say that if you don't powder, it will start breaking down around 4-5 hour period. If you powder, mine last about 6-7 and its in the starting to break down phase, so you'll need to re-powder. lightly touching my skin, my foundation came off. I went to kiss my boyfriend and the foundation came off of my nose onto him and he saw where mine was missing and felt it on him. I'm pale and he's medium dark, so that was funny seeing a circle on his nose. Thankfully, it was at home. I ordered this off here when it was fresh and new and saw that it was on sale at the time for like maybe $5 and it looks like its back up to its full price. Not worth the money. The only way I would repurchase this is if its on sale again and I keep it in a makeup drawer for a filming day where my lights will make my skin look better or for when I run out of my better foundation and even then, I'd look for other affordable options. Less

Favorite Drugstore Brand Foundation!

I am beyond grateful to Crowdtap for introducing me to this amazing foundation! I have a very oily t-zone which makes finding the perfect foundation a tough task. Most of the foundations I have used were higher end and therefore way more pricey. The Revlon PhotoReady Candid Natural Finish Anti-Pollution Foundation was able to provide my oily face with the same coverage as other products that cost way more. The value is shocking for the price. I wore this foundation for my anniversary photo shoot, which was done outdoors on a hot day, and was pleasantly surprised at how long it lasted considering even I felt like I was melting. I love how buildable the coverage is, from a more medium coverage to full coverage without wasting any product. It was also super easy to blend with brushes, sponges and even just my fingers. If you want a long-lasting, blendable and affordable foundation you should definitely try out Revlon PhotoReady Candid Natural Finish Anti-Pollution Foundation!

When I’m not wearing a skin tint or bb cream this is the foundation I go for. It has such a natural and beautiful finish, lasts all day (for me) and it nearly looks like I’m not wearing a foundation at all. By far my favorite drugstore foundation.

This is just devine

Was waiting for this to hit UK after seeing Katie Jane Hughes raving about it.I have mature skin, dryish, not too wrinkled; this foundation goes on smoothly doesn't sit in lines at all! It will go up to medium coverage I feel, lasts all day on me. there is a fantastic shade range in US, here not so much. I use it over the top of ELF hydrating primer and that's a good combination for me. you don't need to use load of product to get good coverage and I found it was buildable. I bought the concealer and powder too from this range. and they are both so good as well. I think this one is comparable to a high end foundation. packaging is good. Only 22ml of product, I guess to keep the price point under a tenner. This is not a deal breaker for me as I found you didn't need to use a lot of product to get decent coverage. I have used this exclusively since I bought it and I do own a lot of foundations, both high end and drugstore. « less

Looking for a foundation that will stay all day, give medium coverage (i just have some red spots from previous acne when I was younger) and NOT look like I have a ton of makeup. I’m looking for my skin but better. I have combo skin and get oily around my nose and forehead. I currently use the L’oréal Freshwear but it gets oily around my nose and even with a light hand of my powder (Coty airspun) it looks so heavy. TIA!!

My skin type is similar to yours, I use the revlon photoready candid foundation. Medium coverage, buildable, and it covers my acne/sun spots. Granted I do go over top of it with powder but I’ve found using more cream products and a dewy setting spray gives off a very natural finish!

I love the candid photo ready by Revlon.. I hate matte foundations because my skin is so dry. This is natural finish and even with a powder on top I don’t feel dry.

I am looking for an affordable full coverage matte foundation for oily skin. Every single one I have tried just has not worked & I don’t know what primers or serums to use to keep it on or to make it look like people in makeup tutorials. Please help me with tips!

I recommend this foundation! It says medium coverage but I feel it can easily be built to be full coverage. I use a primer water first and then a loose setting powder on top (both from wet n wild). My foundation doesn’t break apart like it did and I carry the Rimmel stay matte powder in my purse in case I do get a little shiny. If you’re looking for any videos, I recommend watching Casey Holmes on YouTube! She has oily skin and does a great job explaining products. Hope this helps!

What’s the best foundation for huge pores, combination skin for deep skin. I love matte but is that for me? Should I go for a more dewy look?

if you’re looking for a cheaper, yet incredible route to foundation, i’d suggested the revlon candid foundation. it is by far the BEST drugstore foundation i have ever found and the shade ranges are great! the finish is natural and it literally looks like your skin and not something that has been caked on like matte foundations tend to do.

I use the Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation and I really want to upgrade it to something better because it creases so bad and makes my skin look.. bleh 😖. Y’know?? I would like to find a foundation that is cheap yet has some decent quality to it. That is smooth and doesn’t crease so terribly ✨ I will greatly appreciate any other cheap brand recommendation 🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️

I really enjoy this drugstore foundation it looks like your skin, blends easily, is lightweight but you can still build it up. I would say it has a natural finish.
