Review: Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation
My skin type is dry and sensitive. What I look for in a foundation is light to medium coverage, dewy or stain finish, and something that is moisturising. Revlon's Nearly Naked appealed to me since it promised to look as if you have no foundation on and that it is meant to appear like your real skin.
Here's a run down of my pros and cons of this foundation:
*Affordable and readily available at drugstores, Wal-Mart, Superstore etc.
*This foundation is very liquidy which makes it easy to spread over your face
*Medium, buildable coverage (I didn't need concealer on my acne scars)
*Once dry, feels very light and barely noticable on the skin
*No SPF: SPF in foundations to me is useless as not only does it not protect your skin from the sun it can cause your face to appear stark white in flash photography
*I personally experienced no irritation or breakouts
*No pump so you end up wasting product with every use.
*Highlights peach fuzz, dry patches, and pores.
*Can look cakey.
*Very hard to blend; this foundation took me much longer to apply than normal.
*Dries to a powdery finish.
In conclusion I think this is a great foundation for the price but it's not for me. I have a lot of peach fuzz at the sides of my face and this foundation makes the hairs much more noticeable. It looks cakey around my nose where I'm prone to dryness. The skin on my forehead has very little peach fuzz or flaws and this is where the foundation looks best. If you have normal or oily skin and very little peach fuzz I recommend this but for me it's a total fail :(
