Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation - Reviewed!

I definitely don't need to get anymore foundations, however i'm still on the hunt for that perfect one that ticks all the boxes. So when I heard that Revlon's new release was being compared to a few high end foundations, and that it looks natural but covers I knew I was going to give it a go. 
The packaging is nice, a simple glass bottle with a white lid. The lid can be a little stiff sometimes but that can be a good thing because it means it's less likely to leak all over your make-up bag. The only downside to the packaging is that it doesn't come with a pump which I can get past but I know that can be a deal breaker for some people.
The big claim around this foundation is that it looks 'nearly naked' on the skin. That find that this is such a thin foundation helps it create a natural look to the skin. The coverage of this is also very nice, I would say it is definitely a medium coverage however this is a very buildable product so depending on how good your skin is looking you can apply less or more.
I have the shade 130 Shell, which is a little yellow toned for my skin but it cancels out redness really well and when blended it seems to settle into the skin looking very natural. I've actually just picked up the shade 120 Vanilla as well and the two blended together make a perfect shade for me since i'm in between shades at the moment. This wears very evenly on the skin without going patchy and leaves a nice glow to the skin.  I can get a good 8 hours wear before I need to powder.

The shade range seems to be pretty good for a drugstore foundation. As someone who has combination skin this works well on my skin however if you're very oily it might not last as long however it's worth testing it in store because it is a really nice product. I would definitely recommend it and it is definitely one of the nicest drugstore foundations i've tried, it's is on a par with the Bourjous Healthy Mix as my favourite. 

Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation retails for £8.99.

Have you tried this foundation?


  1. I really don't know if I want to try this. It annoys me that it has no pump but it does sound like a foundation I'll love! xx

    1. If you can get past the no pump it is definitely worth trying :)

  2. I have this in shell too, really love it expect the lid is a nightmare as i dropped it on the floor going everywhere! X

    1. The lid is a bit of a pain! That sucks, I hope you didn't lose too much product! :)
