I find this to be one of the best drugstore powders out there. Ive tried Maybelline dream matte, Rimmel stay matte, WnW coverall & Milani multi-tasker. This ones I enjoyed just as much as Milani if not even better because of the less bulky packaging. This is much more sleek, has a decent mirror you can actually use while facing the powder, no flipping top/bottom like most. Useless sponge though, would've appreciate full rectangle powder vs the circular peep. Nonetheless its super finely milled, so not powdery at all. Its quite lightweight on the face and unlike what others warned it did NOT oxidize on me. Im NC25 & originally bought Fair because I was waiting for this effect, but it remained as pink and ashy on me as when I first applied it. I then picked up Light that has more of a neutral undertone, it looks wayy darker in the pan then it actually goes on & is a decent match.
PROS: Packaging, price, formula, effect on my skin. I love this as a setting powder, unlike Milani it haS no coverage to be worn as a foundation alone but it does seem to blur & even out minor imperfections. Will I repurchase? I already have, in the Medium this time. Its appropriate for summer & it makes my Asian BB creams look more natural on me. The Skin79 leaves me gray & this in medium gives me color back.
CONS: Longevity & wear. I have dry skin so I set my concealer/foundation to prevent transfer not to keep me oil at bay because I have none. It does seem to cling to dry spots so I mustt be well moisturized. Towards the end of the day, this does seem to get ever so slightly blotchy. Its the best Ive found at the price point but not HG. continued >>
Lightweight powder, goes on smooth and gives a nice 'flawless' soft finish.
One big problem , it oxidised horribly on me and made me look so orange and muddy.
The shade collection in this is really bizarro anyway,
The 'light' shade was too dark for my NC30ish skin.
Great coverage for a powder! I apply with a brush to use instead of foundation. My skin stays even looking with the exception of a little bit of oil on the nose at mid-day (handled by blotting sheets).
I really like this powder. The packaging is so cute and the mirror is over the puff so the powder doesn't make it messy like usual powders are. Leaves a soft matte finish that lasts.
BEST POWDER EVA! :)
I am in love with this powder! I use the shade Fair and apply it with the ELF Kabuki brush. It is a matte powder, so if you are looking for a luminous finish, this is not your powder. I love that it remains sheer no matter how aggressively you apply it and it never looks powdery. It remains buttery, smooth, and skin-like. I am so impressed with this powder I am going to try the partner foundation! As for the packaging: it's bulky and could use some work, but not a deal-breaker.
I just don't understand this powder at all. My skin has never been oily, but it has a healthy glow and I always use a dewy foundation. This powder mattifies my face and makes my face look so flat. As the day goes on it just clumps my foundation up and makes certain areas look cakey. After a few hours it basically looks like I've piled on powder in places and neglected to put any where else. If I lived somewhere humid I might see why but I don't. It's practically still the middle of winter in the UK so it makes no sense. I've tried it with other foundations and it always does the same. It also sits in any fine lines or acne scars I have.
For me this powder is useless. It has no coverage, isn't too convenient to carry round and just makes my face look terrible.
I have been on a hunt for a nice drugstore pressed powder to use on the go. I have sensitive, acne-prone, and dry skin. I like to use powder to set my makeup and haven't found a pressed powder that doesn't accentuate my dry patches (my T-zone is normal while my cheeks are dry). I remember hearing that this powder runs a bit dark, so I purchased light for my NC35 skintone. It does not feel chalky or heavy on my skin. Just so you know, this powder does not claim to control oil or even skin tone. It feels like the pacakging says: nearly naked. I use an ELF Powder Brush (flat top brush) and wiggle my brush in the product (I found that swirling causes the product to fall out a lot and become very powdery). Then I just stipple it onto my face. The product comes with a rectangle powder puff but I found it to be extremely unhelpful. I could do without it and have a smaller compact.
The only complaint I have is about the packaging. It is rather large and awkward. There is a very small mirror and a puff holder (where the rectangle powder puff resides). The construction of the package is poorly designed, however, that does not hinder the product performance and quality.
Very nice setting powder! Texture is smooth and buttery, and gives a really flawless finish to the face; reminds me a lot of higher end powders. I've used it with the nearly naked foundation as well as others, and it always looks great. The one thing I don't care for is the packing- its much larger than necessary! Not really convenient to throw in my purse. Also the shades run a tad dark, so if you're ordering online you may want to purchase a shade lighter than you normally would.
My only complaint with this product is in regard to the color selection. I am a NW13 and am used to selecting the fairest shade in foundation and powder, but the Fair shade of this product was far too dark for my skin tone. It made my skin appear orange and though the product itself was just fine, the orange-y color defeated the purpose of the "nearly naked" look. I returned this today and purchased Maybelline Dream Matte Powder in Cream Light instead.
DRUG STORE MAKE UP FANTASTIC-NESS! LOL
i saw youtubers raving about the FIT ME v Revlon Nearly Naked rant...i love revlon color stay so i decided to try revlon's nearly naked foundation and powder first.
the powder is silky, smooth, and just an all over joy. i apply it with a bare minerals full coverage brush and it glides on effortlessly. i buff it in. it's sheer but at the same time it provides coverage but a natural coverage at that. so if u have highly noticeable acne scars and blemishes this will somewhat cover it. to me this is not the greatest build able power but then again it isnt meant to be .
i have combination skin leaning more towards the oily side because i live in Miami where its always hot and humid.
REVLON DID NOT MARKET THIS POWDER AS OIL FREE NOR DID THEY STATE THAT IT WOULD HELP COMBAT OIL OR THAT IT CONTAINED MATTIFYING QUALITIES.
so if you want something matte this is not for you unless you apply a good primer under this powder, like i do, even with a mattifying primer you will recieve a natural finish, semi-dewy but not oily finish which i love. i always LOVED the dewy look but was never able to achieve it because my skin was just too oily for it with a good primer and this foundation i can definitely rock the look.
I ONLY HAVE ONE COMPLAINT..although i found my color match within the range they released sadly MOST PEOPLE HAVENT. i guess when revlon sees that people love this they will produce more colors/shades...
with this foundation your skin will be fabulously nearly naked *pun intended*
