Review: Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer in 001

Hi everyone! I hope all of you are safe and secure. The weather here in Manila and other parts of Luzon was really crazy. The heavy rain is pouring non stop. I saw a comment on Instagram saying Prayers will not do anything. Send money instead. What is wrong with people nowadays? Ughh.. I do not want to argue with these kind of people. Instead, I will be including them in my prayers tonight.

Moving on, I am excited to share this review to all of you. If you have been following my blog, you would all know how I love my ELF Mineral Infused Primer. For 400 pesos, that primer is such a steal. I love that to bits. I ran out of it and luckily, my bestfriend asked me what pasalubong do I want since her dad is having a vacation in Manila. I immediately googled new drugstore finds and this is the most promising product I chanced upon. I look up for reviews at the Makeupalley. Interestingly, this has a lot of good reviews. I have to admit that I am loving REvlon lately. 
However, I am not a fan of their photoready liquid foundation.  I think their ip butters are ingenious and worth all the bucks. I am looking forward to their Whipped Foundation with a lot of excitement. I am also crossing my fingers that this will not cost an arm and a leg.   

This primer costs 825 pesos in the local market.
For the price, this has a good amount of product -27 ml to be exact. 

I love the pump bottle. It is the same with the Photoready foundation. It is very useful and you can really control the amount of product. It is very hygienic too. Th bottle may look heavy because it is made of glass but do not get easily deceived. It is actually lighter than I thought it would be. 
Initially, I did not like this primer at all. I find it too thick and really hard to spread. I was like comparing it with my ELF Mineral Infused primer which was really light and easy to blend. I googled the consistency of this primer and found out the it looks really light than thick. I shook the bottle for a minute or two and voila - my primer became more blendable and the consistency became a bit runny than it used to. 
The color reminds me a lot of the L'oreal Base Magique Primer. However, this is more blendable and lighter than L'oreal's.   It appears opaque white but the color disappears upon application. There is no white cast at all. It also has minute shimmers that are very unnoticeable.  

What I love about this primer:
It smoothens my skin really well .
It can actually fill the fine lines of the face creating a flawless canvass for foundation application.
It did a great job of making my pores less visible. 
It does make my foundation and concealer last longer. 
I experience no break outs using this product.

What I do not like about this primer:
Too much of this product made my face really cakey. You need to blend the product really well to prevent it from caking.
This has a weird chemical scent.

Overall,I love this primer.  However, I love my ELF Mineral Infused primer more. Perhaps, the primordial reason is the price difference and the consistency. Also, ELF Primer's gel like consistency is really light on the skin and blends like a dream. I will definitely not repurchase this primer. 
Can you see the difference?

Godbless you, guys!
Stay safe.

  1. Now ko lang nalaman na may priner pala elf. Niresearch ko agad. Heheh. Can't wait to try it. ;)

  2. wonderful review... I've been eying this product too, but will skip this. I'll prolly give the elf mineral infused face primer a try coz I'm also running out of my current face primer, I use Korres face primer but it's not available locally so I have to find another option.

  3. My face becomes less oily whenever I use this so the foundation stays a lot longer. Love how powdery smooth it becomes when applied.
