Today’s review is on the Revlon Nearly Naked Liquid Foundation and Pressed Powder. This Revlon line has been out for quite some time now and I’ve always wanted to give it a try. I purchased both products about 5 weeks ago for $7.99 Cdn each and I’ve been using them alternately with other products, but use them together when I do. I think I’ve got a good taste to give you a solid review!
Revlon Nearly Naked Liquid Foundation
I really do like this foundation. For me, it completely lives up to it’s name of being ‘nearly naked’ — I find that this gives a light-medium coverage and definitely leaves a natural finish. I am still able to see my own skin underneath, while it gives decent coverage, which I like. The feel of this on my face is one that is barely there — it doesn’t feel cakey or heavy whatsoever. Light in feel, yet good medium coverage.
The formula is quite liquidy and is sort of a pain to try to control pouring it out of its’ glass bottle. (why don’t all foundations come with a pump??!!). I’ve applied this with my fingers and with a buffing brush and both methods work great, although I prefer using the buffing brush to really get a near-flawless finish. I’d say the lasting power for this foundation is about 5 hours before any sort of noticeable fading — however, keep in mind I’ve been wearing this in some of the most humid weather. I presume that on cooler days or in the fall/winter this would last much longer. To help this foundation stay put, I use the Urban Decay All-Nighter Setting Spray (which is totally awesome!) — click HERE if you want to read my review on this gem.
I believe this comes in a good variety of shades – 16 I think – from very light to dark. The shade I use, which is pretty much a perfect match to my skin tone is 180 Medium Beige.
If you’re looking for a lightweight, natural, skin-like finish with light to medium (buildable) coverage in a foundation, this might be a good option for you.
I give the Revlon Nearly Naked Liquid Foundation: a HIGH FIVE
Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder
I’m a big fan of this pressed powder! Amongst beauty bloggers, when a powder is “finely milled” it’s bound to be a good thing. Well, this powder is just that. I find that it’s so densely packed yet when I swirl my powder or setting brush around it (I don’t use the powder puff it comes with), barely any of the product flies around in the air. And when I apply this to my face to set the foundation, it leaves such a barely-there finish, while locking everything in place. Does not look or feel cakey at all!
Just a light dusting of this is all I need to set my makeup. It’s about 4 hours before I see any sort of noticeable shine or oiliness coming through (I have combo skin), without using a setting spray.
This powder comes in 4 shades and I have the one in Medium.
I gie the Revlon Nearly Naked Liquid Foundation: a HIGH FIVE
Have you tried either or both of these products? What do you think about them?
Thanks for reading!!
