I got this at Kmart for 50% off and I do quite enjoy it! I love how smooth and finely milled it is. The coverage is just right and not cakey at all. When I take my makeup off at night, my face still looks super smooth after 12 hours of wear (I'm a student so my school days are long). It could get messy and there's a lot of fallout if you're not careful but I use the Real Techniques Blush Brush to apply it. Any big powder brush will do honestly. The packaging is cute as well. While I like it, I don't love it enough to repurchase (maybe if it's ever on sale again for $4.99) but $9.99 is kind of much. And my love for trying different powders makes it hard to commit to just one
I love this powder! To me it is comparable with a high end finishing powder. It is very silk and smooth to the touch- very finely milled and creamy! The only thing I don't like is the packaging, it is just a bit bulky, but it is a great product.
This powder is absolutely aaaaamazing. HG material!!!
I have it in Light, it seems to have a yellowish undertone and is quite dark for being named Light. I'm an NC30-35 and I feel if that if I was any lighter, Light would be too dark so I got lucky lol
Moving on, this powder never really cakes up no matter how many layers you apply (great for me cause I always tend to overdo my powder) it instantly mattifies my face in a way that kinda blurs out my acne scars and overall just makes my makeup look a lot better
It doesn't keep me matte all day though, I do have to blot and reapply but I really don't mind.
The feel of it is what is unheard of in drugstore powder.. When you swatch it, it literally feels like cream or like, silk. It is so smooth. Feels so high end.
Will definitely repurchase. (got mine for $10.99CDN at Target. A bit pricey, yes, but worth every penny)
The absolute best powder in the drugstore IMO! Try it out!!
Golden beige in Revlon Colorstay liquid foundation, NC 35 in MAC Studiofix foundation powder. Bought this power in Medium together with the Nearly Naked liquid foundation (which I'm not a big fan of either). Texture of the powder is very nice, you can feel that it's very fine and goes on smoothly. However after a few hours my face was SO orange I looked ilke Tan Mom. This is the second powder that I've bought that oxidizes so badly on me ( the other being MUFE's multi use powder) .
The packaging is nice, comes in a white rectangular compact with a mirror inside. Forget about the sponge. It's so cheaply made and I usually just toss the sponges that come with drugstore powder away and use my own.
I might try a lighter shade but honestly since it doesn't really help in keeping me matte all day, I think I'd rather spend the money to get a new Maybelline Dream Matte powder which has been my staple powder for years.
Love this!!! I apply it with a fluffy brush and press it on after I put on my BB cream. It gives an amazing long lasting matte finish
I have normal fair skin. For awhile I was using Mary Kay mineral foundation and wanted to try something new. Honestly I bought this because I had a coupon....not happy with it. Can't exactly pinpoint many reasons why, but I just wasn't impressed.
Made my face itchy, so I felt like because of that i rubbed a lot of the product off throughout the day.
Had okay coverage, I applied with a ELF face brush, which seemed fine.
Blended fine, matched my skin tone great.
I want to try a different product that I'm more satisfied with. I would not recommend this porduct, as I know there area much greater products out on the market.
I'm not picky when it comes to pressed powder, because I only use it to set my foundation. I don't use it to actually perform any sort of coverage. I add this after I've moisturized, primed, applied BB cream, and concealer. I do like this particular one because it is lightweight and there are so many different shades/options. I am interested in trying the foundation next because this entire line seems quite promising. I do find that I do not need much (if any) finishing powder, because this powder alone mattifies my look. Throughout the day (especially in the summertime), all I need to do is sweep a bit of this powder across my face to reset my makeup. I did not find it to be too heavy or irritating to my skin at all. The packaging is a tad bulky, but nothing crazy. It comes with a little sponge, but I always throw these kinds of things out and prefer to use a face brush (ELF) instead.
I purchased this powder in the shade "Fair". It matches my fair skintone very well, and I don't feel that its too dark for us pale folks. It cost about 7 or 8 dollars at my Wal-Mart, but Revlon usually has coupons in the papers so you could knock a dollar or two off the price possibly. I love this powder because of its silky, lightweight feel on my face. I don't feel like I caked on my face makeup, or that everyone else can tell its on my face as well. It makes my face feel soft, and looks natural as well. It comes with a sponge, but I recommend using either a dense brush to add coverage to your foundation or to use a fluffy brush to dust it all over your face. The only complaint I have is that the packaging, despite being clean and appealing, is a little bulky. I feel that we would all be fine without getting a dinky little sponge, and frankly, the unnecessary packaging takes up a lot of space in my makeup bag. Overall, I really do love and recommend this powder!
I got the lightest shade, and it was too yellow and too dark. The sponge thingie was terrible, and the packaging is a bitch to open. never again. Didn't cover anything, either. Boooo.
I have been using Nearly Naked foundation for at least six months now and just now thought to get the Nearly Naked powder, to provide additional coverage and to achieve a more satin skin. As many others have noted, this powder is a whipped heaven - very fine, applies very easily (a light tap of the brush on the powder is all that's needed), gives an instant airbrushed look, and surprisingly noticeable coverage. I adore this powder!
I have it in the lightest shade (Fair), which looks like it has pink undertone. Paired with Nearly Naked foundation in Vanilla, I become ever so slightly tan looking, which makes me look healthier than in Vanilla alone. Packaging snaps shut well and is comfortable in the hand; I appreciate the mirror and the little applicator for convenient touch-ups on the go.
My skin is normal, and I notice that the satiny look of the skin goes away within two hours. I usually forget to touch up and end up having a glowy look. As others have noted, this powder needs to be reapplied quite often for matte effect and is therefore not very good for oil control. (I posted a pic of me wearing it the whole day at school forgetting about touching up - no satiny skin, but still looks presentable, considering wearing it all day). I will definitely repurchase this powder.
12/9/13: One day, I was in a hurry to leave and applied just the powder over moisturizer. Well, my lab mate exclaimed several times throughout the day that she couldn't believe how tan I looked, and that's not a compliment for me. Indeed, Fair is good to be worn over a very light foundation, but alone, it adds too much color without hiding redness. Since I have tried an untinted finishing powder since, I decided that I will not be repurchasing Nearly Naked. I did "hit the pan" with it, though!
