When I picked up the refill of my Revlon Age Defying 2 way foundation at a super steal during the last warehouse clearance, I should have thought better. Because Revlon has come up with a new 2 way foundation! Ack! 😛
The Revlon Beyond Natural 2 Way Foundation has been out for a while and I’ve been using mine for a while too. It replaces the Age Defying 2 way foundation that comes in the red compact. This was flying off the shelves at one stage. Could never find a Revlon counter that was stocked with this! I’ve always had a soft spot for Revlon’s face products and this one does not disappoint.
There are 4 colours available and my colour is Buff. It suits me to a T and I like that this powder foundation isn’t cakey nor is it too thick. It offers medium-light coverage which is fine by me.
You can use it with a dampened sponge too for more coverage. I never do because I prefer a lighter looking foundation. The powder evens out my skintone and with a light dusting of Guerlain Meteorites over it, I can almost fake having a flawless glowing complexion. Almost 😛
The powder does not dry my skin nor look cakey as the day goes on and it contains SPF12 – nothing dramatic but I guess its better than none? Still, it does not replace your daily sunscreen!
The great thing is that this foundation comes in refills too, so I can just replace the pan when I’m done with this foundation. I use it so often (its my to go foundation and one I take when I travel) that having refills is very useful. the problem would be the sponge. It gets manky if you don’t wash it out and even if you do. I don’t think the refills come with sponges but it would be nice if they did. When I refill, or when the sponge gets too urgh! I just use a powder brush.
This Revlon Beyond Natural 2 way foundation retails at RM69 at all Revlon counters but look out for discounts. The price isn’t exactly cheap for something from a pharmacy, but not crazy expensive either.
Pros: Light smooth texture, Medium-light coverage, Asian skintone friendly, Compact packaging, Comes in refill form
Cons: Priced a little high for the pharmacy/drugstore,
I looked on the Revlon international site but I did not spot this in their product line up. I believe this item is an Asia Exclusive, unless anyone in any Western country can tell us if it can be found where you are. I think its a great product.
Have you used this one? Thus far, Revlon face powders have never disappointed me, and in the lower end of the price spectrum, I still go to them for powder foundation because it just works! 🙂
