(Revlon Nearly Naked Swatched in shade 110 Ivory)
I’ve had this foundation for such a long time now, it’s no longer a “new” product on the shelves. The hype has calmed down, and I’ve managed to give it a thorough testing. I already love Revlon as a brand, their ColorStay foundation was a favourite of mine at University. Since then I’ve switched to lighter, silkier and more-buildable type foundations in an effort to get rid of that dreaded “cake-face.”
Nearly Naked ticks all of these boxes, and for less than a tenner on the high street, what more can you ask for? It certainly is a light coverage product, more than a tinted moisturiser but less than you’re average foundation, but it’s buildable to cover most flaws. Water-based, with no shimmers, no caked-on face, nothing powdery, just a lovely skin-like finish.
The longevity is nothing to rave about, although Revlon have released some matching powders to go with this foundation, and there isn’t a pump (Why Revlon, why?) which unless you’re careful could end up with a fair amount of wastage. I use a makeup sponge (my trusty beauty blender) in these cases and apply directly by holding the sponge on top of the bottle and tipping upside down.
For £8.99, this is a little drugstore gem for those looking for a lighter, buildable, silky foundation.
