Revlon Nearly Naked Makeup

I'm sure you've heard all the hype about the new foundation to hit the high street! Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation, If you haven't you need to grab a cuppa and take a seat.
Revlon have recently launched a new foundation and matching pressed powder, designed to feel lightweight and very natural. I'm not going to beat around the bush here, I'm a huge fan! Even after the first application I couldn't believe how natural it looked on the skin whilst still delivering a nice coverage. I had redness and an old blemish which was just in the last stages of healing and both these where covered up nicely. I always start in the centre of the face and blend outwards, paying extra attention to areas which may need a little extra coverage. Because the foundation is so light and blendable you can build up the coverage and it wont look cakey. I was surprised to learn that the foundation also has staying power, don't be fooled like I was and think because it's lightweight it wont last but it did! The shade is 120 Vanilla is perfect for me at the moment, I predict during the summer when or should I say IF I get a tan I could probably go up a shade.The shade selection is good, comprising of 10 shades. I use my bdellium Tools brush for applying this, but I'm keen to try my Real Techniques Buffing Brush next time.

I'm not a fan of the screw top lid, It's a bit of a pain when it comes to opening and closing. Thankfully because it's such a good foundation I can overlook this. I tend to get an oily t-zone mid-afternoon so a little sweeping of the pressed powder over certain areas seals the foundation helping it not slide off. The Nearly Naked Pressed Powder is in a nice slimline compact with it's own mirror and applicator sponge. I like to use a large fluffy powder brush to apply powder for a lighter softer look. The packaging is great, it may be on the larger side but thanks it's slimness it fits/slots nicely into a makeup bag!

 Will you be trying the new Revlon Nearly Naked makeup?

  1. The lack of a pump was putting me off trying this, but your review is making me re-think this! I didn't know there was a matching powder as well! Xo
