Revlon Photo Ready - a high st version of MUFE HD?

Hmmm so having bought Make Up For Ever(MUFE) HD foundation during the hype, I was initially impressed but the novelty soon wore off. However, after a conversation with Miss Virtue two nights ago, I'm wearing it today and like it all over again (urgh, I'm so fickle), so news of a new, cheaper equivalent has made me sit up and take notice. Meet Revlon Photo Ready foundation, which is already causing quite a stir amongst the beauty obsessed.

Unsure of who this image actually belongs to as it's on MUA and a couple of forums - thanks whoever you are though!

Likened to its pricier predecessor which had lovers praising its ability to create a flawless base and banish pores, a cheaper version is surely something to be welcomed with open arms.

It's not officially due out until March 2010 but has already been spotted in various drugstores stateside. As a result of its premature release, not all shades are available to purchase as yet - as luck would have it, mine (Caramel) is one of them.

Reviews are varied, as read on Makeupalley, but I'll reserve judgement until I try it out for myself. My boyf's under strict instruction to bring a bottle of this (and the matching translucent powder) for me in February, if my shade Caramel has hit the shelves by then.

The pump applicator alone gets a huge thumbs up from me as tipping my Colorstay onto my brush or back of my hand irritates the hell out of me. I'm also liking the inclusion of SPF20 too.

Priced $13.99, it's been spotted in CVS and is (was) on BOGO so check your local branches to see if it's still on offer.

Ok, where are my U.S chicks at? Have you tried this yet? What do you think?

I am pretty sure I saw the powder in stores at Target (Oregon) today. I don't think i saw the foundation yet. I'll probably have to go back and take another look and hopefully find one my color :)

This is in CVS stores in Chicago. Waiting on a BOGO. I do love my ColorStay so I'm looking forward to trying this.

I'm thinking about trying that foundation whenever I go to Wal-Mart or Target in my area. I've tired the ColorStay foundation and it was awesome! Also, thanks for the birthday comment for FabDiva20! I did had an awesome Christmas!

hun this is the bomb, i did a review on it, girl i have never tried MUFE HD but this stuff is probably just as good, like i said in my review this does give you a glow because it does contain shimmers in it but not the point where you look like edward cullen lol its amazing, the coverage is again amazing this is my new HG, IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS STUFF LET ME KNOW

I love Colorstay and use Caramel. I bought the Photoready in Rich Ginger since that is the color closest to Caramel. I LOVE it. It does have a little simmer to it. Not too much. It matches my skin better than Caramel. It is so light it covers my flaws but feels like I have nothing on. I did not use any powder with it. It really looks natural just with what I have on. But I think I might pick up the powder to be on the safe side. I will be keeping my eyes open for BOGO free and WILL be stocking up!
