Review Revlon Touch and Glow Moisturizing makeup Gold Mist



Revlon Touch and Glow Moisturizing makeup Gold Mist Review
Hi all!!
Base makeup is extremely important whether you opt for light coverage or need something heavy to hide the flaws. I will review Revlon touch and glow foundation today which is in the shade Gold mist.
Price- 215  INR for 20 ml Available at Flipkart HERE
Shades available- Ivory Mist, natural Mist, Gold Mist and Rose Mist
I got this 2 months ago and have not used it as I am happy with BB and cc cream from Lakme until a couple of days ago, when I thought I should try it.
I have always been someone who would go for only sheer coverage no matter how bad my skin is behaving! Cakey heavy base looks unflattering on me and I have never been a fan of that. It looks as if you are wearing a mask and through hits and trials I have learnt that minimum is the key!

Anyways, This foundation comes in a glass bottle which is tiny enough to carry only 20 ml of liquid but due to the glass bottle I find it a bit risky to carry it. I think if we are travelling and would like to carry foundations in glass bottles, we should wrap them with small towels which will provide extra safety and also it will act as a cushion to protect the bottle.

When I opened the bottle the first thing, I noticed was its fragrance. It smells like a hail oil. I mean more like jasmine oil. Due to which It always reminds me of hair oil when I use it though it claims to be water based which is the main reason I bought it, I have oily/combination skin and I dare not use non water based foundations. If you close your eyes and then smell it, I bet you will think someone has given you oil to apply on your hair!
It is amongst those foundations that can give you sheer coverage which is averagely buildable.
I bought this online and the shade I thought would be my closest match would be this one called Gold mist. It is a misleading name as in by Gold, I am sure you will too think of a shade that has prominent gold or yellow undertones as my complexion is fair with yellow tones. Now, it is a beigey color which is still fine can match me but To my utter surprise, it has pink tones to it!

I love sheer coverage foundations which are water based due to which till date I like Lakme foundation which matches and suits my skin perfectly and has never break me out!

Same way, I had great expectations from this, but the chameli ka oil kinda of smell and pink undertones in a shade named as Gold mist has disappointed me. When I swatched it I was like what it is?? I double checked the shade and it was the one I ordered! :/
I still doubt that they have named Rose mist as Gold mist! I will check at the counter to confirm and update here.
Most of these brands has this problem that they lack yellowness in their foundations.
Complete list of ingredients is not there and it says only key ingredients that says it contains Titanium oxide, talc, butylene glycol and lanolin alcohol.

It may not look that pink in the swatch but it is that I was just thinking it could be even used as a blush, I mean cream blush lol.:D
It has a decent staying power if you do not sweat else it will melt! I have used it once at home just to check it and I have this feeling that it will break me out! Though I cant say it for sure as I have not used it due to the mismatched color. It makes me pink that looks as if I am blusing constantly even though the person due to whom, I blush is longer there. It's funny!!
Let’s see its thumbs up and downs
Ups of Revlon touch and glow foundation
Easily available
Affordable
Blends very quickly
Water based
Downs of Revlon Touch and Glow Moisturizing makeup
Complete Ingredients list is not there
It smells like jasmine oil, I cant stand it.
This shade is gold mist but has prominent pink tones which makes it a misleading name wise.
It melts when you sweat. It isn’t water proof as it is water based which is not a con exactly though.
Rating- 2.5 out of 5
Take- After trying touch and glow compact I had decent expectations but it smells like hair oil and names are misleading which makes it a disappointing purchase. Good thing is it water based and blends really quickly but mismatched and limited shades can not be compensated with its blending ability. I will not recommend it!!

  8. Ahhh was waiting for this review :) I completely agree with the chameli ka tel kinda fragrance and the water based claim is misleading. I have oily t-zone and every time I applied it, it clogged my pores so bad I had never seen my nose breaking out before. And it went in a series. The strange thing was the break out used to happen a day or two after applying and I have this in ivory. I had thought it would be too white but strangely it matches me perfectly except in pics it comes out too white sometimes. And you are right, the compact is much better dear.

    1. I know Gagan! :) I used it once an it didn't break me out but still I wrote that I have this intuition that it will break out. After trying so many product and knowing my skin, this much now, I can predict.lol:)
      Their Compact is such a great product and due to that it I tried this as most of the foundations matches me even if I buy them online but this has a misleading name and I thought Ivory will be lighter.
      They should understand if they are launching it in India, even if it is an old product, they should have changed the shades with yellow tones instead of the pinks.

    2. Yes Niesha I was surprised about the shade revelation after reading your review. And even in the pic, it is looking quite rosy in the bottle itself.

    3. Such a misleading name that was!! and the product was a dud even if it matched me.

  12. Oh I always thought this would be good... will be so weird using somethign on the face that has a hair oil smell..

    1. That is what I thought Swati after using their touch and glow compact which was amazing product.:)
      I haven't used it for photographs as it was pinky on me..:(
      Lakme perfecting liquid is really good for oily skin as it water based will not clog pores and stays pretty decently and also it's so cheap that there is no harm in trying it dear!
      :)

    2. Okie, I am going to try it :) Thank you.

  24. Nicely reviewed Niesh :) Its such a dud would skip it :(
    I had used the whipped cream which worked lovely as base product for few weeks for me until I reviewed it ;) and later caused breakouts - I don't quite trust their base products

    1. It is dear! :(
      I tried whipped cream at the store but the texture and formula even if that was great has made me feel that it will break me out! ow, even I dont think I should. I will stick to my BBs and CCs then as they give sheer coverage that I need and dont break me out i have tried 4 of them so far.

      Delete
  25. Nice and honest review ;) I'm not buying it ;)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Neisha , the Revlon photoready foundation is much better from what I have heard and did the Lakme cc cream suit you? Coz when I tried at the shop it did not spread evenly on my skin so I went for the Garnier BB cream instead. Neisha I am doing a tag " what are your college/work beauty essentials" I have shared my essentials on my blog , you can either leave a comment on my blog about your beauty essentials or do a post your self . I would love to know your beauty essentials

    1. Hello, thanks for the suggestion! Yes, CC cream suits me a lot better infact most of the BBs too that i have tried. You have to try to blend it more and give it some seconds it will match and suit your complexion!
      Sure, I will visit and comment soon !

  28. Oh!
    When I Am In The Mood, I Go For Full Coverage Makeup.. But To Make it Look Natural, A LOT OF Blending Goes Into It..
