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*
I am giving this product a very low rating, that disappoints me because I wanted to like it so much. Though my issue is I have a very pale, fair, light skintone so I bought the powder in light hoping for the best. When I got home and put it on it showed up orange on my skin. It is way too dark, maybe in the middle of summer when I am at my tannest I can try it again but it does me no good until then. If I could return it I would but my store does not allow me to do that. I am not surprised though because most bronzers and blush turn me orange too, I find it hard to find one to go with my skin tone, I also have pink undertonesm maybe that does not help. Oh well, another $10 wasted on unuasble makeup.
Le sigh. This powder came so close to winning my vote except for 1 small thing: it does not control oil in the least. In fact, I'm not even sure that it doesn't produce its own oil! I was so shocked when I happened to look in the mirror about 3 hours after I had applied it. I do not have overly-oily skin and though other powders I've tried haven't been wonderful for oil-control either, this one is by far the worst in that category. I'm sorry to say, Revlon, but this powder does not provide a gentle "glow", rather your skin becomes excessively shiny all over.
It's unfortunate because I did like its other benefits; it goes on smoothly, it matches skin tone well, it blends wonderfully and it's quite cheap. If only it didn't look like I had run a marathon on a summers day after only 2-3 hours, I would have been happy to give this a 5 star rating. But alas, it only gets 2 from me.
Meh. I sooo wanted to fall in line with the hype but my oily skin couldn't take it. In the pan it comes off as slightly more yellow than when applied. The texture is fabulous! It's very smooth, cooling, and lightweight, especially when compared to something like MAC's Studio Fix. I loved putting it on! Unfortunately hours later I was a shiny mess. This does absolutely nothing for oily skin. I bled right through in record time. And it definately cannot be built up w/o becoming cakey and clinging to dry patches.The packaging is regular and includes a small powder puff. The pan is white though, so since I have brown skin it got dirty very fast. Would not recommend for oily-skinned individuals.
I was so excited to buy this foundation because one of my favorite youtube beauty gurus was raving about it. When I got to the store, I was disappointed at the color range. My skin is pretty pale and I wear the lightest color in the foundation I use. I found it strange that the "light" and the "fair" were actually darker than was my skin needed. However, I just decided to buy the powder in "fair" anyways. The powder its self feels silky smooth and not as powdery and cakey as other powders. I applied this after my foundation and it set beautifully and looked so smooth and natural. Unfortunately, it did not match my skin tone at all. I really really loved this powder and how it looked/felt on my face, but I wish they had it in lighter colors:(
I use this powder combined with the nearly naked foundation. it goes really well on the application,the texture is smooth and light,it last fairly long,for a more natural look! love it!
Unfortunately i found this powder to be nothing special. i have this in 2 shades: 010 fair and 020 light. i'm about NC 20-25 and i wear 130 shell in the revlon nearly naked liquid. 010 fair is a much better match than 020 light which is too dark. for me, this powder can only be used as a setting powder atop liquid foundation and not on its own as powder foundation. i tried it on its own and it looked quite awful... covering nothing, accentuating every little imperfection, and making my whole face look patchy. my face looked loads better without this on. when i use it as a setting powder, it seems to do ok but it does accentuate imperfections (again) and dry spots. it also leaves behind a powdery appearance especially clinging to the dry spots on my face. however, as the day goes on, the powder seems to oxidize a bit and fades away... leaving my face with a slightly oily / greasy (not glowing) appearance which i do not care to sport around town. for reference, i have normal - dry skin. i'm not impressed and it will be returned to the store.
