Revlon Age Defying Lifting Firming Makeup Review

Sunday, August 03, 2014

I have tried several different foundations, including making my own. I have also tried various tinted moisturizers, beauty balms, and CC creams. So far, of all the ones I have tried, I found myself to be happiest with the Revlon Age Defying Firming + Lifting Makeup. It is one of the few that doesn't cause me to break out. There are so many shades to choose from. I am warm-toned and find I'm able to find warm matches for my winter and summer skin shades.

The makeup is slightly hydrating and definately not matte. I would say it is luminous. So sometimes if I hydrate too much under it, I get a sort of shiny look. I typically use a light hydrator under it and then I apply a mattifying primer to my T-zone area before I apply the foundation. Sometimes I even dust some powder over my T-zone afterwards.

I would have to say it is not the prettiest foundation I have tried. Sometimes I feel like it is too luminous for my taste. Even though it is not really "sparkly" with lots of mica. I think it would have been better to have a little silica in it for more of a blurring and slightly mattifying effect.

But what I like most about this makeup, other than that it doesn't cause breakouts for me, is that it has a good amount of anti-aging peptides in it that really lift my skin. I notice my face, especially my cheeks, that are sagging due to being over 40, are lifted and my cheekbones become more perky with this makeup. I feel so much younger when I use this foundation. I don't really feel the need to use contouring makeup anymore, since I have so much actual lifting.

And when I take off the makeup at night and wakeup in the morning, I notice the lifting effects all gone. So it doesn't seem like a permanent effect, but it is good enough to look so lifted during the day. I was so impressed with the effects that I have searched for a night cream that could do something similar. I even tried to find something with similar ingredients, wishing that Revlon made night cream with similar ingredients. And to my knowledge, as of this writing, they don't.

I have used other foundations/tinted moisturizers that seem to have a nicer sheen. But weighing out all the pros and cons, I haven't found one to outweigh the benefits of the Revlon Age Defying Firming + Lifting Makeup.
