I bought this.
I saw this new Revlon Youth FX Fill + Blur Foundation on display at drugstores recently and put it on my wishlist to try. I don’t remember the last time i tried a Revlon foundation, but it has been AWHILE.
A couple weeks ago, it came off my wishlist and into my cart thanks to a coupon from CVS for $4 off a Revlon Foundation!
Revlon says that this foundation on its website: “Lightweight, hydrating formula works to fill in and blur lines and wrinkles with micro-fillers and optical diffusers. As the appearance of lines and wrinkles are smoothed, this high coverage foundation erases the look of uneven tone, age spots and hyperpigmentation.”
Does it do the job? Keep reading!
First off, color match. I chose the shade Porcelain.
The consistency of this foundation is creamy, but thick. I used a couple different brushes to apply this with similar results; my IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Complexion Perfection Brush and an elf blending brush – it’s thick, so it takes a bit of work to blend it out across your face, in my experience.
A quick note on the packaging of the foundation – I like the slim, short tube that this comes in. It fits in my hand comfortable, and easily fits into my cosmetic bag for emergency touch-ups.
Here are the ingredients:
You can see that this foundation has sunscreen – SPF 20 to be exact. My skin has remained safe while wearing this foundation in the sun.
So here’s my face prior applying the foundation:
Here I am with half my face with the foundation:
And my full face:
Revlon says this is a “high coverage foundation” and I agree. I easily covered my redness and rosacea.
Despite the thickness of the foundation, my face never feels cakey, or as if I’m wearing a load of makeup when I wear this.
Here’s a shot of “how I wore it out” at a recent Phillies game with my husband. With faceATELIER Ultra Fine Matte Mist as a primer, and Milani Prep + Set + Glow Illuminating Transparent Powder (02) on top of the foundation, my face stood up to a warm evening at the ball park and still looked good when I got home hours later – I wish I could say the same for my waterproof mascara that night!
I can get quality wear from this foundation the entire work day without needing a touch-up, which is fantastic! I’ve tried it with a couple different primers and no primer, and it performs pretty comparable each time. My skin type is combo/oily – especially in my T-zone.
As far as filling in lines and evening skin tone, this foundation delivers on the even skin tone and I feel my face does look as flawless as it can. You can still see my crow’s feet, but is a foundation really going to take those away?
Overall, I was thrilled with this foundation.For someone with my similar skin type, I would recommend it!
This foundation generally retails for $16.99 for 1 fl oz., but I paid $12.99 because of my coupon at CVS.
Revlon Youth FX Fill + Blur Foundation is widely available at drugstores, big box stores and Ulta. It comes in 12 shades.There really only appears to be three darker skin tone options, unfortunately.You can read more about it on the website here.
