Revlon Age Defying with DNA Advantage Cream Makeup Review

When I got several Revlon foundations to test, I have to admit, the brand doesn't fail in making good drugstore foundation!  My first Revlon Foundation was the Custom Creations Foundation which I bought online and purchased 4 bottles as each bottle can give out different shade which I think is one of the best liquid foundation to try when you're starting up on makeup or when you're a student of makeup artistry.

Thanks to Revlon as they are coming up with different kinds of foundation for different skin type!  Revlon ColorStay Foundation in my opinion is meant for oily skinned individuals while Revlon's PhotoReady Makeup is best for Normal or Dry Skin. 

What about our mature, very dry skinned friends?  There is indeed one product that Revlon recently came out with...called Age Defying!

Revlon Age Defying with DNA Advantage Cream Makeup says ---
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 

Shades available locally --- Tender Beige, Soft Beige, Medium Beige, Spice Beige, Honey Beige

AMW says---
  • Sealed upon purchase.
  • Pump packaging!  Very hygienic and easy to control the amount of product to come out.
  • Pump can be twisted open!  Pump can be reused on other foundation bottles!
  • It doesn't hurt to see a swirly image of a foundation against the thick, lightweight plastic bottle.
  • No weird scent.
  • Has SPF20 - which is needed on regular days!
  • Feels light on skin for a cream makeup.
  • Made my skin look glowing after application.
  • Has light, medium to full coverage depending on how much you apply.
  • Easy to blend with fingers, sponge or brushes without much effort.
  • Gives a radiant, glowy finish but not as sparkly as Revlon's Photoready!
  • My skin is moisturized and doesn't dry out.
  • The foundation doesn't last the whole day when not "set" properly.
  • Normal, Combination, Oily skinned individuals will find this too moisturizing for them to use.
The Revlon Age Defying with DNA Advantage Cream makeup is lightweight, fragrance-free, has spf20 and gives a good amount of coverage.

  • Pump approximately 2x and apply at the center of your face going outward.
  • You can use the same foundation as a concealer.
  • Use your choice of foundation primer as I believe having a barrier between the skin and foundation is always good.
  • Though the product contains SPF20, do not skip your sunblock application.
  • It is best to set your foundation with an oil-control powder if you have oily skin.
  • For mature, very dry skin, you can apply blush directly and leave the other areas as it is for a healthy glow.
  • If you have ultra sensitive skin, do a patch test prior to applying this product all over your face.
  • Carrying oil-blotter sheets won't hurt to blot that extra grease/shine.
Will I repurchase?

To whom do I recommend this to?
The product itself contains a lot of moisturizing ingredients which I personally believe would work well on dry skin individuals as the added sheen would give a "healthy glow" to dull skin.

Where to purchase and how much? 
At local Revlon counters for Php975.00(approx $23.00)

A little amount of Medium Beige

 Gently blended
You can see a hint of luminosity
(Red line is an accidental scratch)

Once blended, you can see it gives a tiny bit of coverage
for tiny amount used
(Check out the accidental scratch mark, lightened a bit)

Applied on face
Doesn't feel heavy and looks natural
Gives a nice glow

To see the coverage of the foundation ---
I did the half face application 
Left facing you - with Revlon Age Defying Cream Makeup
Right facing you - none

This particular foundation will be used for dry skin and mature skin!  I think this product is made specifically for the said group hence the name of the product!  

Have you seen this product around?
Have you tried it?

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

  9. hi may i know what is your MAC shade? I am trying to figure out what is my shade for this item. I'm NC20 for reference.

    1. I'm between NC20-25 and I like using foundation that's not too light as my body gets a bit sunburned at times :) so this shade is just right for me but others may find this a shade darker :D
