Revlon New Complexion One-Step Compact foundation

I have had the Revlon Compact foundation in my collection for over ten years now. It is a must have product for me!

I originally bought this years ago, because I was looking for a foundation that is quick and easy to apply, with great coverage and this definitely is all of that, so I keep on repurchasing it!

Revlon says:
  • Innovative Revlon Dermabreathe formula
  • Oil-free, irritant-free and won't clog pores
  • Combines the coverage of a liquid with the finish of a powder in one quick and easy step.
  • Glides on creamy smooth for a natural even finish
  • Medium coverage
  • Oil-Free - No animal, vegetable or mineral oil
  • SPF 15
The compact itself is sturdy and easy to open with a mirror. The product is in the first part you open and then a separate area which you flip up is where the sponge stays. This is a one step compact foundation that is cream to powder application, which means you can wear this without adding powder. I do find that it can transfer a little, so you can add powder to help avoid transfer of product.

I use the sponge to apply this to my face (I have combination skin type) this feels so smooth and soft on my skin. It feels really light weight, gives me even skin tone and blends well. It has medium coverage and is buildable, but if you apply too much it will become cakey, so be careful that you don't apply too much. This is best applied with a very light hand and thin layers that you build up. It definitely gives me good coverage and covers my redness and uneven skin tone well.

It leaves the skin feeling moist, yet has a flawless matte finish. The dermabreathe formula does feel like my skin can breathe and doesn't clog up my skin. It may seem to be a thicker formula (as it is a cream), if applied correctly it blends well to a great finish. I really love how great this feels on my skin and it has spf 15!

I have found that this doesn't dry completely to a powder finish, but definitely gives a nice finish to the skin. You can use a powder lightly if you like to set it or if you have oily skin.

I would definitely recommend the Revlon New Complexion One-Step Compact foundation if your after a easy, quick and great coverage foundation, that is easy to travel with and can be applied anywhere. It can be purchased anywhere Revlon products are sold and retails $34.95aud.

Do you use a compact foundation? What is your must have item in your collection?

My must have is a Dove tinted moisteriser. Just slap it on in the morning as a quick foundation substitute.
