First Impression Review: PHOTOREADY™ INSTA-FIX MAKEUP (Foundation Stick)

Hi guys!

Today I have another first impression review for y’all and it’s on the Revlon Photoready Insta-fix Makeup which is basically a stick foundation/concealer which can also be used for contouring and/or highlighting depending on what shade you get. On to the review!

This foundation stick has amazing coverage which is not what I was expecting – it definitely has a medium-full coverage. The product does not have a strange odour which is good unlike some other ones out there. It is excellent for on the go due to the packaging. I found that it lasted throughout the whole day, only wearing a little in my usual places i.e. the nose and cheeks. The product is super easy to blend and apply which is great, it doesn’t have a thick consistency which you would expect from a stick foundation. The finish is quite shiny but if you set it with a powder it looks lovely. I use this product mainly as a concealer on my cheeks to cover up my acne scars and it’s amazing – perfect for when I’m in a rush, it takes seconds to blend.

  • Medium-high coverage
  • Build able coverage
  • No strange odour
  • Easy to blend and apply
  • Perfect for on the go
  • Long lasting
  • Not a thick consistency


Due to the type of packaging you need to be a little more careful while closing it to avoid nipping the product with the lid while closing it. The only other minor con there is is that you can’t just slap it on and run out the door, you must set it with powder otherwise it’ll look shiny and unpleasant (although that may be my personal preferences as I steer towards more matte foundations).

  • Careful while closing the product to avoid nipping
  • Must be set with a powder


It is quite a pricey item and I normally steer towards liquid foundations rather than this, however I found that the quality of this is amazing and it has great coverage. Thus, I would consider repurchasing (and recommend you guys if you have the budget) as it’s great for on the go and great for touch ups throughout the day.

Rate: 4/5

  1. Brilliant review! I think I judged this too harshly when I first saw it and assumed it would be ridiculously cakey – I’m glad it blends easily and isn’t too thick! 🙂
