Review - Revlon Age Defying w/ DNA Advantage

What Revlon has to say: Revlon Age Defying with DNA Advantage Cream Makeup combines makeup + powerful anti-aging skincare to help protect skin's DNA to fight the signs of aging. 96% of women saw flawless, younger-looking skin in two weeks. Lines and wrinkles are visibly diminished while skin is refreshed, hydrated, revitalized. SPF 20 ~ Revlon
This was originally my mom's makeup, but she gave it to me since she doesn't really like foundation in general.  I'm so glad she gave it to me because I love it. It's feels light and creamy but has medium coverage which is perfect for me. It also has SPF 20 which is great for day wear. I don't know how well it photographs though since I haven't worn it at night, but the high SPF makes me a bit leary to wear it at night if I know phots will be taken.

One of my favorite features of this makeup is that it has a pump. This makes it a lot easier to use and it's more economical because you don't waste any product. (I can't help but wonder if the pump fits the MAC studio fix bottle). I apply this foundation with my Sonia Kashuk Flat top brush and set it with MAC prep and Prime loose powder. I find that this lasts on me for about 6-8 hours, after that I noticed that it starts to break down a little around my T-zone since I'm oily there. 

Lightly blended and half a pump below it

This comes in 8 shades and retails from $12.99 to $14.99. My shade is #15 Tender Beige which I think would be a good match for NC30 and skintones.  I have a lot of yellow undertones in my skin and I thought that this shaded blended in really well and was very easy to apply. I didn't notice any pink undertones in this shade, I would say it's more of a neutral so it evened out all the yellow. The finish of this is dewy/satin. Definitely not as dewy as Maybelline's Dream liquid Mousse, which I find to be too dewy and borderline oily. I really love the natural look this gives me, it looks like my skin but better. I think this foundation would work well for those with dry, combination and normal skin. It might be too moisturizing for oily skin. 

This is after about 4 hours of wear

Overall I really like this foundation, I think it would work well in the summer and winter. I do feel that it's a bit pricey for a drugstore brand, but then again Revlon is a little more expensive than most drugstore brands.

What foundation do you current use?
