Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation Review
I found myself interested in the Nearly Naked foundation because I was growing weary of my thicker, fuller coverage foundations. I wanted something lighter, something fresher. While a tinted moisturizer would usually remedy that need, I’m an oily girl and tend to stay away from those. With Nearly Naked being an accessible item at the drugstore, it fit the bill and I was all in.
About Revlon Nearly Naked foundation:
“Revlon’s breakthrough nearly naked makeup balances skin and makeup so they work in perfect harmony. With buildable coverage and seamless blending, you are sure to cover flaws and perfect your skin’s tone and texture. No heavy cakey or greasy mess.
Available in 16 true to tone shades.”
What I like:
With a helpful little guide at the store, I was able to narrow my foundation of choice down to Warm Beige. I like that for a “nearly naked” foundation, I don’t feel naked. I do feel like I’m wearing slightly more than a tinted moisturizer, but leaving out the grease factor. The foundation feels weightless, but it doesn’t disappear on my skin. I do set this foundation with a powder. Right now, my powder of choice is my MAC Studiofix powder. There is no crazy transference, but I don’t think it’s budge proof. This makes a January favorite product of the month!
What I don’t like:
There’s not much to not like. I’m loving this! The only qualm I will have is that you won’t find the full range of shades everywhere. The shades go all the way up to cappucino.
UPDATE: I tested out the wear more and for an oily girl, a primer is definitely needed. This product isn't oil free, so it seemed to break down on my skin after a full day's wear (I could see pores, appeared to need refreshing or just wipe my face clean all together). I've heard you get better results with a primer, so I'm going to update once I try it with the Black Radiance Primer.
