The new Revlon PhotoReady BB Cream has landed

 A huge thanks to reader Fatima for this one! I know a lot of people have been waiting for this BB cream to hit store shelves, so I'm happy to tell you that Fatima just spotted it at her local Harmon and was nice enough to share a pic and some info:

Revlon PhotoReady BB Cream

From the display:

Skin perfection without the layers.

Hydrates like moisturizer
Smooths like primer
Covers like foundation
Blurs flaws like concealer
Protects with SPF30


This BB cream comes in three shades (light, medium and dark, I'm assuming, but I could be wrong on the names). Fatima confirmed that there is a tester tube on the display, and she said that it felt just like a tinted moisturizer when she tested it. Not really surprising since the L'Oreal and Maybelline BB creams are very much like tinted moisturizers, but I still can't wait to give this one a try when I find it (what can I say? I have to try them all!).

Have you spotted the new Revlon PhotoReady BB cream in your area yet? Are you interested in giving a try when you find it?

Thanks again, Fatima, for the great sighting and pic!

  1. So looking forward for this! I guess it will hit the store shelves (in my country) in the midst of dec or maybe in 2013.

  2. I am so excited for this!!! I have yet to try any bb creams, but Revlon would be the brand I want to try. Can't decide if I think by creams are a marketing gimmick or not. Guess I'll have to try and find out.

    1. I can see how you'd be inclined to think they're a marketing gimmick if you had only tried US versions. But I personally wouldn't make that judgment until you've try some Asian BB creams (these US versions came much later and have very different formulas than the original BB creams from Asia).

    2. I think American BB creams are nice--they're a good tinted/spf moisturizer. I use them when I don't have time for a full face of makeup. But don't count on them to have the benefits of the asian BB creams, which is where the idea orginated.

  3. This is tempting, but I want to make the change to more natural makeup products, so I might pass on this one. I do tend to have great luck with Revlon products in general, though!

  4. I didn't even know that Revlon was coming out with one. I haven't been happy all that much with BB creams. No happy stories really. I think it's time I give this a rest. But maybe if you like it I might give it a try.

    1. Not happy with US BB creams, or Asian ones too? So curious! Thanks. :)

    2. They either cover my scars but make me break out. OR they don't have enough coverage. I've tried just about all drugstore BB creams. MUA BB cream, and two skin79 BB cream which both made me break out really badly. :(

    3. I have to agree. I have tried the L'oreal and Garnier BB cremes and they just didnt do it for me. Everyone kept telling me to try an asian bb cream, as they are so different. I purchased the Missha, and the scent really bothered me (im very sensitive to scents and i have allergies and asthma). The missha definitely had a nicer finish for my oily skin, but the smell irritated me too much to continue using it unfortunately.

  5. Harmon's always has all of the new products, wish there was one near me!!!

  6. hopefully its not over priced and the quality is a little better than the rest of the US bb creams.

  7. *crosses fingers* Please don't be just a TM...Please don't be just a TM!!!! COME ON REVLON!

  8. When will the US get a REAL BB cream? Calling tinted moisturizers BBs has gotten a lot of people confused and has kind of tarnished the rep of BB creams as a whole.

    It's hard to read the photo but I think it says "covers like foundation"... we'll see I guess.

    1. Lol I think maybe you missed it, but I included exactly what the display says in my post above (I even put it in bold). It DOES say ” covers like foundation” in addition to some other things. Hope that helps.

      I agree...I think it's made people who haven't tried Asian BB creams perhaps think they're ALL just like tinted moisturizers. :(

    2. Just saw the display in my CVS yesterday and was not impressed at all with the coverage on the tester. Felt a little greasy to me too... I decided to pass on it. Overall, I am not too happy with most American drugstore BB creams. I do really like the Sleek Makeup BB cream though, so if you order through Sleek, it's worth throwing that in and trying it out.

    3. There is one "real" BB cream that is a US brand. It is Jane Iredale Glow Time, it has heavy coverage like Asian BB creams, but is really pricey.

  9. Yay! I just read that Revlon/Almay have been looking at real time user feedback (ahem, us!) to reposition their products. I love a good BB cream- I'd love to see an ingredient list for this one.

  10. I hope the BB Cream doesn't contain shimmer like their Photoready and Age Defying makeup.

    1. Mimsy, I was JUST thinking the exact same thing!!

  11. im starting to consider boycotting certain drug store brands (foundation only though)...they have this thing where they tend to give us brown skin girls selective products...i just knew revlon would be the one to have a real "dark" bb cream and now im disappointed...the very least they could do is stop at their cappuccino color...guess i have to wait until iman bb cream comes out, i was thinking i could buy a asian bb cream online to use underneath iman's but i dont wanna look like a powdered cinnamon doughnut lol

    1. Two things:

      This Revlon BB cream MAY be self-adjusting (I don't know for sure yet, but many are) which means that the deepest shade MIGHT work for you.

      Have you tried the Maybelline BB cream I reviewed a while ago? That comes in deeper shades. For instance, Britney over at Clumps of Mascara found a shade that worked quite well for her.

      Hope that helps!

    2. ive always found the self adjusting shades to end up chalky. but yes thanks to Britney at clumps i was able to use the same shade as her and it works...im just hoping the iman bb cream is as great...i have too many products already but i love buying anything with the "new" tag on it lol

  12. The only GREAT BB cream sold in the US is the Dr. Jart BB Cream. It's even made in Korea.

    1. Wow, really? You think so? There are SO many Korean (and Japanese) BB creams sold here in the US...I would have to disagree with you about there being only one great one (I personally adore Missha Perfect Cover, which is also Korean).

  13. Hi G!
    have you tried the Garnier BB Cream yet? if not you should REALLY give it a go. i have very sensitive skin and was hesitant at first, but i got a sample in the mail and the rest was history! it retails around 12 for 2.5 ounces.

    it's creamy, soothing, hydrates, and covers up any discoloration. basically it does everything it claims to. and it smells like new Macy's clothes! it's now my HOLY GRAIL staple :)

  14. oh and i first heard about the Garnier BB cream on your blog first!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Ooh, this looks promising! The packaging reminds me of a tube of Cover Girl's Natureluxe foundation...

  16. This bb cream is in my local cvs on 125 st in nyc. I noticed it has shimmer in it and its pricey ($11.49). It felt nice but i think i'll stick to maybelline.

    ReplyDelete
  17. We just got it in Canada, it is pricey $17.99 (the new Nearly naked is on sale for $13.99).

  18. Will you be picking this up to review?
