This foundation is okay but definitely not great. The overall texture is heavier than I expected but doesn't have the accompanying coverage which is odd. Your skin will look smoother but I find that to be true with almost all foundations. I thought this foundation would leave me with dewy, moist looking skin which it definitely doesn't do. I would not purchase again.
I love this foundation. It has been my HG for months now, I have combination skin with dry skin around my mouth/chin that can be really frustrating to apply any makeup on because it will look so noticeable but not with this. It has good coverage for me and it feels so light on my skin, it gives me a nice finish that is not too dewy but my skin really does look really smooth.
I've bought it in 120 Vanilla & 150 Nude shades when it was on introductory offer as my exact mach was not available (Vanilla is way too light but it was the only shade with yellow undertones).
It works really nicely on my dry, dehydrated skin so that is why I am able to overlook the terrible packaging. Seriously Revlon, 21st century and you are not able to provide your customers with a PLASTIC PUMP?!
I like that it does not have a strong smell and that it is spf 20.
It is quite liquid and well pigmented and really looks like skin but I do not use it every day as I suspect that because of unhygienic packaging it breaks me out whenever I do. I think it must also be an inconvenience of pouring out the foundation from its bottle or using a q-tip to dig it out - I am always worried that I will accidentally spill it over my clothes or furniture - and I grab a different foundation in the end.
EDIT: I gave away my too light Vanilla shade to my cousin and I am mixing Nude with my too light Dior Nude (funny coincidence) foundation as they are of similar consistency. I will not repurchase, there are more pleasant to use foundations on the market + I am not sure if it is not causing some breakouts.
I'm really liking this foundation. It reminds me of Laura Mercier's tinted moisturiser, but with more coverage. I used to love that TM, but after a while, I just got sick of shelling out £30 pounds every time for that tiny tube.
For starters, I have oily, acne and redness prone, and sensitive skin. This is my first real foundation. I mostly use TMs along with concealer, but I've tried a few foundation samples and they all basically either slipped off my face, or sinked into my lines and blemishes. I decided to try this because I was looking for something light that looks natural to cover up my redness and even out my skin tone, not so much for full coverage. It gives me just enough coverage for my redness, and even covers some of my lighter blemishes. And I absolutely love the finish! Just right, very natural, slightly more on the dewy side, and feels very light on my skin.
And it doesnt really do anything for my oily skin, but at least it doesnt make it worse. This is not really a problem, because this isn't a mattifying foundation, and I'm not about to condemn this for being something other than what it says it is (Ehhem looks at the other reviews saying this foundation doesn't give enough coverage. Did you not read the name of the product before buying it??). Without primer, it has decent staying power for me, but with my mattifying make up base, it's fantastic!
There's a pretty good range of colours, at least according to the main revlon site. Unfortunately, I live in the UK, and it looks like they haven't brought in the yellow-toned shades. It's not the fault of revlon, so cant blame them, but that means there isn't a shade that is suitable for my warm Asian skin at all. It really is annoying though, because I would drop my other foundations, high end and drugstore, for this.
It also has an unpleasantly odd smell that makes me cringe every time. Those with sensitive noses, beware.
Since I can't find the right shade for my skin, I won't repurchase until I can find it, maybe when I travel. I would still highly recommend this though!
I bought the foundation for 1/2 price, AUD$12. I have oily skin and the coverage was medium & matte finish with slight dewy appearance, almost unnoticeable . spf is a positive element. I like it but wouldn't pay full price for it. I got colour "shell" and I m mufe 120. They are identical in colour.
Initially, I bought this foundation due to the hype about it being a dupe for UD's Naked (or something like that) foundation. Maybe it is, and my skin type just wouldn't agree with either one, but it did NOT go well. My dry skin fought the application, which I believe would be improved with a change to the consistency of the foundation. It is very liquidy, and runs all over the place even after shaking the bottle. Not any type of brush or sponge I tried would apply the foundation evenly, and it always caked on the dryer patches of my face. The color, however, was true to match, and played with my cool complexion well. I imagine that if I had less dry skin, or if the formula were more creamy, then this product would be worth buying. AS a final word: those with dry or sensitive skin BEWARE, and invest in a creamier product.
Honestly, I was disappointed in this product. I consider myself to be a Revlon girl--I love their lipsticks and nail polishes, and their Nearly Naked Powder is also quite nice. This product does not live up to its name. It is a medium coverage foundation. I definitely looked like I was wearing foundation--not even close to "nearly naked." I have been searching for a true light coverage foundation and this was not it. I also had trouble getting a good color match. I tried Nude 150, but it's a bit yellow on me. The next color up is cool, but too dark. But even if the color had been perfect, I didn't like this foundation. I ended up trying L'Oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder Foundation in 314, Creamy Natural--I love it and I have a full review of it too. My MAC color is NW20 with a slight tan, which I no longer have due to daily ss use.
I'd say that if you can get a good color match and want a medium coverage foundation, then this might be just the right foundation for you. If you want to look like you're not wearing foundation, then this isn't it.
I haven't tried a drugstore foundation in ages and there was a Revlon promotion at London Drugs (buy 3 items and get one item free) so I decided to try the Naked Foundation. My skin is finally clearing up from my battle with hormonal acne (spironolactone does wonders) and I wanted something lightweight for my sensitive combo skin.
I managed to find a suitable colour match which can be tricky with drugstore foundations. I'm Asian, NC30/C3 and Fresh Beige is a great match for me.
Texture: Nice, lightweight texture that applies smoothly and evenly. You can build the coverage for the look you want. I prefer a light to slightly medium coverage so one application works for me. If you like full coverage, you may not like this formula.
Finish: On my skin, it leaves a soft, light dewy finish. Now that my skin isn't so oily (again, thanks to spironolactone) I don't look like a greaseball by mid day.
I finish with a light dusting of powder to set the foundation and it lasts for most of the day. I do touch up lightly once and that's it.
If your skin is on the oilier side, you'll probably be oily before mid day. If you're normal to slightly dry, this will probably work for you.
Breakout factor: I have sensitive skin that's prone to breakouts but none with this foundation. Again, YMMV.
Price: very reasonably priced. It retails for about $10.99 in Canada and there are always sales at the drugstores.
The colour selection leaves something to be desired. If you can find your match, great. Otherwise if you're very pale or very dark or in between shades, it's slim pickings.
Revlon should have packaged this in a pump bottle. I dislike the traditional bottle with the open neck.
Would I buy this again? Absolutely, especially as it fits nearly all of my criteria.
I simply love this foundation, its not too heavy and it is very flattering on my face, I was scared it would be too pink for me but it turned out perfect! So glad I bought this!!
I never use ds foundation and only purchased this because it was 40% off, I had a 2.00 coupon and I wanted to test out my BB sponge (which really is all that). This is an ok foundation for everyday wear. It is by no means the HG foundation that I'm still trying to find in a HE version. When mixed with my tinted moisturizer it gives me the light coverage I like and it lasts through my 7hour workday. If I build it up to two applications then it gives me a medium finish which is as heavy as I can go without feeling like I'm wearing a mask. I'm an NW45ish and purchased the Cappuccino shade. Although I put NO as the purchase again, I honestly don't know if I would or not, so my more accurate answer would be maybe.
