Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation and Pressed Powder│Review & Swatches

nearly naked 1 

Revlon's newest liquid foundation Nearly Naked Makeup ($.7.49) has gained popularity due to its comparison to high end foundations such as Nars Sheer Glow Foundation and Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation. The foundation comes in 14 shades, I chose 150 Nude, a medium warm peach tone. I use the ColorStay foundation in the shade 200 Nude, which is more yellow based and matches my skin perfectly. The Nearly Naked foundation has SPF 20 and claims to give a light to medium coverage with a very lightweight feel. The application goes on very smoothly and sheer but still evens out the skin tone and covers minor imperfections, although it doesn't cover up blemishes. It gives a very natural satin finish without being dewy. I always set it with pressed/loose powder because of my skin type (normal- combination) but it still looks healthy and natural. The consistency is very thin therefore I recommend being extremely careful when dispensing the foundation into your hand or brush as it doesn't come with a pump. I apply one layer of foundation with the Real Tecniques Expert Face Brush for medium coverage and sometimes with the Real Tecniques Buffing Brush for a lighter coverage. The foundation is buildable to medium-full coverage but if you need more coverage on certain areas I advise applying concealer instead.

The shades definitely change between formulas, I chose the closest match to my current foundation and is very different. As I mentioned before, the ColorStay 200 Nude shade is yellow toned and the Nearly Naked 150 Nude is peachy toned. Both of these foundations aren't comparable because both have very different claims and finishes. Nevertheless, both formulas are very nice and have worked out well for me.

The Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder ($.7.49) is a creamy, lightweight powder and it comes in 6 shades. They look very dark so I chose 020 Light and it matches quite well. If you have very fair skin, try this shade before purchasing. The result is a matte finish and light coverage. I wouldn't use the powder on it's own, only to set the foundation. The packaging is very sleek for both products, quite different from the regular Revlon packaging because is white. The bottle is made out of thick glass with a twist off white cap (and no pump!) and the compact is white plastic with a decent size mirror and comes with a little disposable sponge.

If you're looking for light to medium coverage then this foundation is perfect for you but if you're looking for a full coverage foundation I'd say the ColorStay range would be a better choice.

Have you tried this foundation/ powder? What's your take on the Nearly Naked name?

  1. I have been using this foundation for over a month. I really like it. I am switching to Cover girl 3 in 1 for the summer, because the Revlon foundation makes me oily in warmer weather.

  2. I've been looking to buy theses foundations to wear on an every day basis as I don't like the look of my MAC foundation for everyday, I prefer to wear it on occasions as it is a much heavier coat.

  12. Getting rich is not the result of saving, or "thrift"; many very penurious people are poor, while free
    spenders often get rich. *Viral Resistance: As a reader, my biggest concern when I download from the
    net, is the transference of viruses. Writers are aware of
    the growing popularity of e - Books and how it can help their work reach a
    global audience.

  16. I do believe that a home foreclosure can have a major effect on the borrower's life.
    Property foreclosures can have a Several to a decade
    negative impact on a debtor's credit report. The borrower that has applied for home financing or just
    about any loans for instance, knows that the worse credit rating
    is, the more tricky it is to have a decent financial loan.
    In addition, it may affect any borrower's chance to
    find a good place to lease or rent, if that will become the alternative real estate solution.
