Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation


Early this year, I put myself on a self-imposed foundation ban after realizing that I have 8 foundations that I still have to go through (to be fair, 2 of those are 'summer foundations' - totally not my shade right now!) Do I really need another foundation? Absolutely not. Did that stopped me from buying a new one? Of course not. 

I was in LA when Urban Decay released their Naked Foundation. From my first week up to my last, I kept on going back to Sephora to check on the foundation. I didn't end up buying it in the end because there weren't a lot of good reviews for it then, plus the $36 price tag was holding me back. Just my luck, Revlon released a foundation that is supposedly very similar to the UD one.


Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation (Php600 from Chedelyn's Cosmetic Store) is the newest foundation of the brand - released just this year, if I'm not mistaken. I got it in the shade 180 Medium Beige which is unfortunately, a shade too dark on my now NC30 skin - it also has a slightly pink undertone. I'm not happy about the shade that I have - I guess I can make it work if I bring the foundation down to my neck but I really hate doing that! :(

A lot of people have said that they found this particular foundation to have a "tinted moisturizer like" consistency. I have to disagree because this gives me a nice medium coverage.  Enough to blur out my imperfections, but not too much that it hides it completely making my face look unnaturally flawless. It has a semi-matte finish which I loooove - it doesn't make me look like I'm an oil-slick mess yet it doesn't look cake-y at all. It looks super natural.

The packaging is very similar to the Maybelline Fit Me Liquid Foundation - both are housed in a sleek looking glass bottle, though the Nearly Naked one has a white cap versus the black one that the Fit Me has. The formula of the Nearly Naked is surprisingly very runny, and combine that with the fact that it doesn't come with a pump, it's a disaster in the making for us clumsy people. The first time I used this, I poured too much on the back of my hand... such a waste.

Staying power is fantastic if I set it with powder - I've been using Maybelline Fit Me Powder. If don't set it, I have give or take about 4 hours before I need to blot. Take note, I have an oily skin. Still, 4 hours is way better than the staying power of any of the foundations I'm currently rotating right now!

Have you tried this? :)

  5. I've heard great things about this, I think I'll give it a try as soon as it comes to Italy. Totally get what you mean about bringing the foundation down your neck, I hate that too.

  6. I totally get you for having a lot of foundation. I think I have about 8 bottles of foundation, too! The shade I got in Nearly Naked is Sun Beige and it's really really dark. But I found a way to work on my skin (which is NC25). I love this foundation but hate that it doesn't have a pump. :)

  7. It looks very pretty on you.. I need a little bit more coverage though as my skin isn't very good. I really love their colorstay foundation xx

  9. I definitely don't need another foundation either, but I'm very tempted by this one! I really hate that it doesn't have a pump though!

  10. I have the ColorStay foundation and I find that one a bit too heavy sometimes especially in our weather. So I've been wanting to try this ever since it was released. I might have to buy it online too. I'm also NC30 but my ColorStay is in Nude. Maybe that's you shade in Nearly Naked too?
