Review: Revlon Beyond Natural Skin Matching Makeup..What's Your Favorite Foundation?

To start with, I don't own this product but have used this on a couple of occassions. In fact  I like it and amthinking of purchasing it.. And that is where I need your opinion :). Here's my review followed with questions for my blogger friends.

Product Details
Product Range: Revlon Beyond Natural - Foundation
Price: Rs 1050 for 30 ml
SPF Protection: Spf 15
Shades Available: Medium/ Deep, Medium, Light
Shelf Life: 36 Months :)

Product Description
  • "A lightweight foundation with breakthrough, exclusive ingredients that adjust to match your exact skin tone.
  • With this innovative formula, the right shade is as simple as your own skin.
  • Super-lightweight formula starts off white and adjusts to your exact skin tone to cover imperfections.
  • Seamless coverage makes skin look naturally flawless.
  • Enriched with SPF 15"
My Experience
  • The product is indeed lightweight and blends very well into the skin. Does not feel oily.
  • The coverage is pretty good and again being lightweight it is good for everyday use. But obviously you cannot expect it to hide very dark spots/ marks. It is a little sheer for those.
  • There are 3 shades available and it should more or less cover all the Indian skin colors. I liked the medium.
  • I like the fact that it gives a matte finish. I am not too fond of a shiny finish. Also does not leave any powdery/ whitish patch.
  • The tube is small and sleek, easy to carry in your handbag.
  • The SPF 15 is a plus, I only wish it was a bit higher.
However, the price is a little bit of a turn off. To be honest, I rarely use foundations. For me it is serious make up and hence I use it only when I attend some engagement or wedding parties. Compared to the Colorstay Compact cum Concealer, which has a little powdery finish, I think this is better. I currently use a Revlon new complexion makeup foundation which is almost 3/4th full and the product is nearing its expiry. But now I wanted a light weight product for daily use. For starters I was looking for something in the range of 600-700.

So please help me make up my mind...

My Questions for my Makeup Lover Friends
  • Have you used this product? How do you like it. Would you recommend a buy?
  • What's your favorite foundation/ compact?
  • What would you suggest for a light, daily wearable foundation/ compact in the range I specified: Rs 600-700
  • I won't mind spending a higher if there is a wonderful product. Have you found something that nice?

by what you have described, I think you should go for it considering you've tried it out anyway.
Thing is if you wear foundation rarely.. you want it t be special or extra nice no? not bad.. so this does sound good that way.
How long did it last on you?
Did you find your perfect match?
If the above answers please you, I see no reason why you shouldn't go for it! :)

I haven't tried this but personally I like Maybelline Fit Me foundation for a daily wear and it has spf 18. I've also used Revlon Colorstay and it's good too. Sorry, not that helpful. :)
