This review is so beyond overdue, and I am so sorry for that. I just got very busy with work and on my other blog that's why I was not able to publish this post which have been sitting on my draft since forever. But anyway, excuses aside let's just now proceed to this extremely hyped foundation which I was fortunate enough to receive for trial. Shall we?
“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.” - revlon.com
The packaging of the Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation is pretty similar to the Revlon Colorstay Foundation. It is housed in a clear glass bottle and white twist-off lid with no pump. Yes, this one doesn’t have a pump which bothers me A LOT! I found pump-less foundation a bit unhygienic and messy to use. It would have been better really if this comes in a pump type of packaging.
The Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation comes in 16 different shades (and a coordinating powder you can buy for the same price) so you are sure to find the right shade no matter what your skin color is.
As for the scent, it have this cosmetic-ish scent which I am not fond of but luckily with this one the scent is not strong, it’s just very minimal so it does not linger upon application.
THE FORMULA AND LONGEVITY:
The consistency of the Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation is very light and a bit runny but not the “watery” type of runny. It gives the skin a very “dewy” and natural (hence it’s name Nearly Naked) feel without being shiny nor cake-y so if you’re into that kind of makeup then consider trying out this one ( if you are the type of person who’s into the full-coverage side then this is not the type of foundation for you). This also has a SPF 20 so if you’re like me who most of the time forgets to apply some screen protector, this is a good option.
Overall, I really liked the Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation. If you are looking for a sheer to medium type of foundation that feels and looks au naturel, this might work for you. I am actually more of a medium to full coverage type of person when it comes to foundation but since it is reallllly humid here in the Philippines I also switch with something that feels light and looks very natural.
It does not state on the packaging whether this one is for those who have dry or oily/combination skin but coming from someone who have an oily skin (ahem!) this actually did a great job on me. It does not cake (well, just a little) and lasted quite a long time too!
pictured above is the darkest shade that I own but originally, I am using a much lighter shade (120 vanilla) which I believe is the second to the lightest shade.
