I’ve been curious about Revlon’s Nearly Naked foundation*.
Words I kept hearing about this foundation included: natural, light, and easy to wear. I was able to test drive it myself the past couple of months, and I’m finally ready to give it my two cents.
First, I have to tell you that I tend to prefer higher end foundation. My skin reacted to drug store foundation in the past so I have a bit of a phobia. I was more than relieved when I tried this foundation, which has now made it into my regular rotation.
The Nearly Naked foundation is indeed a nice foundation to wear on days you want lighter coverage. I tend to wear medium to full coverage so it was a bit out of my comfort zone. I felt like it covered what I needed to, and on days where I felt I needed more coverage, I just added a bit of concealer on top of this.
Here’s a before with no makeup (left) and after with foundation (right)…and then an after after with full makeup!
You can still see your skin and it doesn’t look or feel cakey or heavy. The finish is dewy but not shiny. As for the texture, it isn’t watery or thick. My only beef with the product is a lack of a pump dispenser. (Why? why?) It is awkward to have to pour this out of the bottle. I’ve had many a messy situation as a result. But if you can get over this hump, it is lovely to work with. It applies beautifully especially if used with a brush.
So there you have it, a foundation that does live up to the hype.
