In one of the magazines that I have, they had a set of 8 shades of the Revlon Age Defying Foundation with DNA Advantage, so I wanted to swatch them for you. I can’t speak about the wear, or the formula or anything, but I can show you eight of the shades.
Row 1 = 5 Fresh Ivory, 10 Bare Buff, 15 Tender Beige, 20 Soft Beige
Row 2 = 25 Medium Beige, 30 Spice Beige, 35 Honey Beige, 40 Early Tan
It’s odd but 30 Spice Beige looks lighter than 25 Medium Beige.

Has anyone tried this foundation? What do you think of the swatches?
Samples purchased by me via the magazine I purchased. All opinions are my own.
Probably my favourite budget brand! I haven’t tried this foundation, but I can tell you the Photoready (SPF20) and Colorstay mineral lines are really good quality. They have SPF, didn’t break me out, and the application was easy. The only reason I switched was because they have crazy coverage and I felt I would like to try something lighter.
Also, beware it oxidizes a bit. Not full blown orange like Rimmel, but I swear after six months the color starts looking warmer. Most people finish a bottle before that, so no big deal.
I like Revlon but a lot of this ends up looking orange-toned, to me.
It really does! I see the ones I’ve tried leaning warm, but not that much. Also, my skin is kind of orangy anyways in natural indoors light (think shade 15) so I don’t notice that on application, just looking at the bottles >.< and now thanks to Apriltini's comment my new self flagelating thought is going to be "put some makeup on, you look oompa loompy!" XD
My goodness those are orange swatches! It looks like Oompa Loompa makeup.
They are orangey!
