Revlon Nearly Naked Liquid Foundation and Pressed Powder

Hi Pretties!

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!!

  1. I actually have the pressed powder and I love it! I pair it with my L’Oreal True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous foundation. I like the silky feel it has as well.

    • I have yet to try the Lumi foundation :). Yes, I love this pressed powder, the formula is very silky and just delightful to put on! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
