WHERE I BOUGHT IT: Walgreens
PRICE: Got it as BOGO-Free. Prices Vary from $9-13 each.
PACKAGING/SHADE:
Foundation: Deep Shade. You turn the top to "On" and squeeze tub until product comes out thru the bristles. (Brush care: Rinse thoroughly with warm water and soap. Air-dry.)
Concealer: Medium/Deep Shade. Pencil stick - it's a clicker (you turn the clicker for the product to come out)

PROS/LIKES:
Foundation:
+ Build-able Shade - doesn't come off thick
+ Gives good dewy appearance
+ Doesn't have a strong SPF smell
+ The brush is interesting and can be convenient when you don't have a brush around
+ The "ON" - "OFF" switch.
+ NO BREAK OUTS!
Concealer:
+ It doesn't stay in the cracks/wrinkles of skin
+ Brightens dark undereyes a bit
CONS/DISLIKES:
Foundation:
+ LIMITED COLOR SELECTION. UGH. (8 shades total)
+ Can have rub-off potential (not much)
Concealer:
+ Same as above (4 shades total)
OVERALL:
Deep is the darkest shade they carry in foundation under this line and I'm NC44/45 in MAC and #173 in MUFE so my skintone isn't the darkest. So, ladies with darker skintones then me - sorry, but you're out of luck. Huge flaw in this product. Even the dark shade is a bit light on me, so it's not the best match and not something I can wear during Summer time which is the BEST time to wear a foundation like this. Same goes for the concealer - although nothing is special with the concealer.

The brush applicator for the foundation is pretty neat, I think some might not like it but for me - I like setting it on my face and then blending it with my MAC #187. I don't have to pour it on my hand or apply with my fingers first, so that's cool. Cleaning is easy - and the "OFF" switch will prevent water leaking in or product leaking out.

Revlon has good face products overall - so you can't loose when choosing from them, imo.
BUY AGAIN? Only if they make darker shades, but most likely - no.
RATING: 3.5/5 (for both)
