Review of Revlon Youth FX Fill + Blur Foundation

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.

Have you tried this foundation? What do you think?

    I really need to pick this up. I don’t usually wear foundation, but I occasionally have a need for a high coverage formula.

    • BeautyJudy

      Then this tube will go a long way for you!

  • Polished Hippy

    That has a nice, glowy effect – I will check it out!

    • BeautyJudy

      It’s awesome!

  • Ehmkay Nails

    Whoa! The half face picture is so helpful! I was like meh, no difference, but that helped!

    • BeautyJudy

      Seriously it’s always dramatic with my red face lol!

  • Anastasia

    Love the half-face comparison where we can clearly see the coverage. Besides, I think crow’s feet are adorable and make you look like you’re always smiling, which is awesome 🙂

    • BeautyJudy

      I don’t mind my wrinkles and stretch marks and scars. They tell the story that I’ve lived my life. I’ve had surgery. I’ve gained and lost weight. I’ve carried one and now two babies. I laugh and smile a lot. I wear them all proudly! 🙂

  • Shilpa

    I’m almost finished with my current foundation and this looks like something I should try next!

    • BeautyJudy

      Let me know if you do!

  • polarbelle

    It looks fantastic on you. I’m not sure how I feel about a thick foundation, but the wear looks great.

    • BeautyJudy

      It may not be for everyone, I totally hear you! But it gave me great coverage!

  • Kristi Vasquez

    That is great full coverage! There are some times when I really need full coverage when my redness is at it’s peak. Affordable & amazing!

    • BeautyJudy

      Yes! I have a light coverage foundation on hand but unfortunately my redness is my most prominent facial feature (at least so me but I know we’re our own worst critics lol!)

  • Jen Sky Walker

    I’ve not tried this foundation before but it looks great on you! I may have to try it out for myself!

    • BeautyJudy

      I am so happy to have quality drugstore options!!!

  • Naked Without Polish

    This foundation looks like it works great! Hope you had a blast at the game!

    • BeautyJudy

      I’ve been in love since first use!

  • Painted Fingertips

    It looks like it might be a little heavy for me, personally.

    • BeautyJudy

      It’s billed as a high coverage foundation so it’s opaque, but it feels lightweight, blending out nicely.
