Revlon Age Defying with DNA Advantage Cream Makeup

Mature skin tends to be duller, with age spots, wrinkles, and dry skin overall. That means normal makeup just won't cut it anymore! To enhance older skin, makeup artists would recommend products that have intense moisturizing and brightening effects.

One foundation that fits the bill is the Revlon Age Defying with DNA Advantage Cream Makeup (P975). I wouldn't recommend you put too much stock on its "DNA advantage" that is, its claims to protect your DNA from aging, but it is certainly a good foundation for its intended market.

Texture. It's thick, creamy, and easy to spread on even the toughest, wrinkle-ridden skin. It also helps soften lines due to its light-reflecting properties. Has SPF20.

Coverage and finish. Coverage is medium to heavy. Be careful when layering because it has the tendency to look thick and cakey if you use too much. As for the finish, it feel it looks shiny, so best set it with loose powder.

Lasting power. The few times I used this, it felt like a hot mess on my face by mid-day, and I think it was fading. So if you have oily or combination skin like mine, this wouldn't work for you. However, for dry skin, I would imagine this is perfect.

Shade selection. I found a pretty good match in Medium Beige - Revlon makes good shades for Filipinas, imho. Shades of the Age Defying makeup available here are for light to dark tones: Tender Beige, Soft Beige, Medium Beige, Spice Beige, Honey Beige. 


Packaging. The swirl design is pretty and eye catching. FYI, the bottle is made of plastic plastic. I prefer this since at least you won't have to worry about it breaking when it falls.

Recommendations and verdict. If you have, or someone you know has really dry skin, I think the Revlon Age Defying with DNA Advantage Cream Makeup can help get you that bright and moisturized finish. If you have oily skin, however, skip it! Personally it's not something I would use but I would imagine makeup artists using this on their older clients.
