Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation in Warm Beige and Medium Beige Review
Here's a review on Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation in Warm Beige and Medium Beige
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in all leading drugstores and supermarkets
I confess: I have this fantasy of going outdoors naked. Oh, it's not what you think-I mean, going outdoors in naked skin. :D Don't wanna be accused as an exhibitionist and land in jail!
But here's the naked truth-my skin is not that of Anne Curtis or any other celebrity so I really need the help of makeup on a daily basis especially foundation. I've always been the full coverage type of gal, but I still keep a handful of light foundations for good skin days and summer. Since I'm blabbering about my skin already, might as well update everyone on its current status: Thanks to my newly- curated set of skin care products, it's finally doing pretty well at this point. The marks are exceptionally lighter now, thus I can skip facial concealers. My 2- year battle with post- acne marks is seeing its final days-I can feel it! I'll write about my new skin care routine soon.
Anyway, I think I can materialize this fantasy of mine in the near future if I persist with my meticulous skin care routine, but for now, I'll settle with the next best thing to naked and that is Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation.
REVLON NEARLY NAKED FOUNDATION IN DETAIL
If I'm not mistaken, this is Revlon's lightest foundation to date in terms of consistency and coverage. As the name implies, Nearly Naked delivers a light coat of foundation so no one will know that you're actually wearing one.
I have found my favorite Revlon foundation in this product. More about it after the break!
The bottle is made from glass yet doesn't feel thin-it actually feels pretty sturdy to me! It has a screw top cap and no dispenser. Product's pretty runny and I always end up pouring out so much as the opening of the bottle is pretty huge.
Top: Medium Beige
Bottom: Warm Beige
Between the two, Warm Beige suits me best-Medium Beige will suit gals with NC35 and NC40 shade matches. The major reason why this is my particular favorite amongst all of Revlon's base products is because it's the only one that's predominantly yellow- toned-Have had no luck finding a shade in their foundation items that somehow suits me until Nearly Naked came along.
Consistency is watery, soft and very blendable, and texture is smooth and ultra light. I sometimes feel that it has this cooling effect to the skin that's why I find myself using it frequently. It's virtually unscented, coverage is light to medium, and finish is matte/dewy.

I love how it looks seamless on my skin! It melts in right away and even though overall finish is light, pigmentation is very good: it can magically cover redness, shadowy marks, light spots, uneven skin tone, although needs a lil' help from concealers on dark to very dark discolorations. It's not the least bit sticky, thus it's very favorable for tropical areas.
Regarding the downsides, I've read reviews saying that it can somewhat highlight dry areas-haven't experienced that though, but it's good that you know. Just like all light foundations, it's not that effective in concealing lines and 3D skin problems-well if it does, it won't be 'Nearly Naked' anymore, right?
How's the staying power? Pretty good. It last for around 5 hours before T-Zone gets a lil' oily, but product stays intact. It has a complementing Nearly Naked pressed powder which I will review separately.
Nearly Naked is a very nice skin unifier and it just enhances bare skin: makes it look smoother, bright, and fine. It's comparable to L'Oreal's Lucent Magique Foundation, but this one is cheaper and coverage is a little better. Suits oily, combination and normal skin types, but dry- skinned gals should moisturize properly beforehand. I'm using it almost everyday! :)
