There are so many anti-pollution skincare items out there right now, so it makes total sense that someone would come up with a makeup line that does the same thing too.
Revlon recently came out with a new line of products in their PhotoReady line, the Candid collection, which consists of a foundation, concealer, and setting powder, that is aimed to protect the skin from pollution and blue light, all without oils, parabens, phthalates, and harsh fragrances.
As someone who has seen first-hand the effects of pollution and blue light, I love that there is a makeup brand out there that has come out with a line to protect skin from these daily aggressors (seriously, I have seen SUCH a change in terms of eye strain with my blue light glasses. It’s a thing people!).
Anyways, back to the collection… Starting off with the PhotoReady Candid Natural Finish Anti-Pollution Foundation (C$15.99), this product is available in a staggering 31 shades and is a skin-enhancing, natural-looking formula that gives your skin a flawless finish. The hydrating texture delivers medium coverage and is weightless when applied. I found it great as an everyday foundation, or one suitable for the office since it protects your skin from your computer screen and air pollution, and found that it wore quite well throughout the day as well.
Pair the foundation with the PhotoReady Candid Antioxidant Concealer (C$10.49), which is available in 18 shades and also delivers medium coverage to cover up dark circles and blemishes. It also contains caffeine to depuff eyes for a fresh start to your day. The thing I love about this concealer is that although it looks like a squeeze tube with sponge at first glance it actually opens up to a doe-foot applicator, making it super easy to really target where you want to apply the product.
Finally, the PhotoReady Candid Anti-Pollution Setting Powder (C$16.49) is available in three shades (the powder is translucent, it just adds a bit of tint) and is the perfect setting powder for the foundation and concealer. The formula is lightweight and features ultra-fine loose powder to even out skin tone and set makeup. It has a sifter-type packaging that makes it easy to just dispense the appropriate amount of product needed and also contains antioxidants to nourish the skin.
Overall, I thought this collection was great. For actual wear and how it made my skin look and feel, I thought it did the trick, but the thing that really impressed me was the whole anti-pollution and blue light thing. I’ve seen this so many times in skincare lately and it’s never even dawned on me that you could add it to makeup, which I think is a great idea. If you live in a high-population city or work in an office in front of a computer screen for 40 hours a week, then I highly recommend looking into this line to help protect your skin.
