This is okay. its nothing special.
I have combination , sensitive, dehydrated. and my whole entire face can get dry sometimes even though i have combination skin. oil is not a big problem for me.
i dont wear this everyday, because i dont wear makeup everyday. but if i did. i think it would break me out because of my sensitive skin. but i only wear it 2-3 times a week and it doesnt break me out. it makes my skin look nice and dewy.
coverage is light to medium. if you have blemishes and spots or scars on your face you want to cover up. you might want to follow up with a concealer. overall i liked it. but i f i ran out i wouldnt immediately run out to buy it again. but some time later, i might just maybe repurchase it.
Love this foundation. I use it in days when I don't need full coverage and set it with my elf complexion perfection powder. Last all day. Love
I'm surprised this doesn't have better reviews. This is my new favorite foundation (well, it is tied with YSL Touche Eclat Foundation) - it is like a cross between a tinted moisturizer and a foundation - the coverage is more than BB creams or TMs, but less than a full coverage foundation. I love it because it covers up redness, pores, uneveness but still lets my skin show through. I think skin looks much better when it's not covered in a heavy foundation. This lasts all day on me and does not slide/smear around like so many foundations do. Yes, I have to blot once in the middle of the day, but I have to do that no matter what. My face gets less oily with this foundation than it does with most.
Also I was impressed with the ingredients in this foundation, especially for the price - it has better ingredients than high end brands. It has Vitamin C (sodium ascorbyl phosphate), Vit E, ceramides, niacinamide, green tea extract, jojoba oil, linoleic acid, etc, so this foundation should improve skin over time, and keep it hydrated and balanced throughout the day. That's probably why my skin does not get over-oily using this foundation. The ingredients are as good as a nice day cream - I rarely see that in a foundation, especially not a cheap one!
The only thing I don't like about it is the packaging - why is there no pump?! All foundations should have pumps, and these days most do, even in the drugstore, so this is strange.
For reference I am NC 15 in winter and NC20 in summer and I wear it in 120 Vanilla.
I decided to try this after Revlon changed their Colorstay (my old all time favorite drugstore foundation) formulation and made it HORRIBLE. Really depressed over that, Revlon...BUT, anyway...I bought this with hopes that it might be good.
Overall, I like it. I got the shade "Vanilla" which is comparable to the Colorstay in "Buff". The coverage is definitely more sheer--probably light to medium depending on what you use to apply it. I use a Real Techniques Expert Face Brush and it works well. It evens the skin tone nicely but you will need concealer to cover any blemishes, dark circles, etc. The finish is somewhat luminous but not oily looking or anything. It sits well on the skin for a sheer foundation and does not accentuate pores or fines lines. For me, the lasting power is quite good...it never gets patchy or separated looking and even seems to look better than the 16hr Colorstay after a full day of wear. I do set the foundation with a dusting of powder right after I apply it.
I would prefer slightly better coverage but I am not counting that against this foundation because it is advertised a lighter coverage formula...hence the name "Nearly Naked". For what it is, it's good and gets the job done.
I am on my first bottle of this, have been using it for months. It is difficult to tell how much product is left because the foundation coats the glass but it seems like there is still quite a bit left. I use it nearly every day. The shade I wear is 110 ivory. I really like it. It is very natural looking, and a good match to my skin tone. Does not have any weird undertones. It goes on smooth, I always just put some on my index finger and blend it in all over my face using my finger. Works great, definitely not mask like. It's more coverage than a BB cream, but only slightly, with a much lighter feeling. I would repurchase this one.
It's ok I feel like it never dried even with powder on it. I have no acne so I was expecting like a bb cream. but instead it was to thick and heavy for my skin I was not impressed. But the color was nice
I bought this foundation after going months without wearing any. I saw all the reviews and I thought this would be a great light weight foundation to try out. I picked this up in the shade caramel because I'm very tanned right now. I always tone and apply a moisturizer with spf everyday, but I do tend to have very oily skin. So on applying this foundation I noticed that It gave a really light coverage with the first layer, I used my Sonia Kashuk 130 brush to blend all over my face. When I applied with my elf flat top, I got a lot more coverage, but I prefer the SK brush for everyday.The first layer felt like I had nothing on my face, I just noticed that slight imperfections were blurred. I applied a second layer and it was still very light weight though the coverage was a lot better. After letting this sit on my skin and then touching it, it felt JUST LIKE MY SKIN. I didn't feel like I had a heavy layer of makeup on. I wore it woithout a powder on the first day and noticed that The oiliness started to show in about 4 hours. The next day I wore it with a light dusting of powder over the top and it lasted a lot longer on my super oily skin.At the end of the day my face looked dewy but not oily. The best powder I have tried with this is the Urban Decay naked powder. It gives me a flawless look all day. I have yet to try the powder that came out with this foundation. This foundation does not come with a pump though, but I don't mind because its really liquidy and easy to pour out. I would repurchase this again because I am really enjoying it right now.Also it HASNT BROKEN ME OUT. Which is rare for me. Thanks for reading.
UPDATE: I got this in the shade toast and it is a perfect match. I am still loving this and using it.
I recently purchased this liquid foundation in a Boot's drugstore. As one of my blogger friend's recommended the product and was comparing it to the NARS foundation dupe. I was surprised as I really didn't like this product, the coverage is so poor! I found myself mixing in an old foundation with it to try and make it better. It's not a long lasting foundation either. Oh and one more thing... No pump! Which means mess, mess, mess.
First, the good. The formula for this fdtn is really smooth and lovely, and was very easy to blend. It was enjoyable to smooth onto my face and despite the light coverage, it really blurred many of my flaws and I didn't feel like I need to add powder fdtn on top for more coverage like I sometime do with sheer fdtns. I didn't notice any transfer, it wore well, looked nice at the end of the day, and while I would prefer a pump, the packaging was not the end of the world.
I'm fair with neutral-yellow undertones, NC10ish (sometimes a little olive in certain lighting) and thought Vanilla would be too dark, so took a chance with the shade Ivory. After I did my makeup the first morning I tried it, I stepped back from the mirror and noticed that my skin looked good and I looked glowy. I had been concerned that the shade I chose might be too pink but so far so good. However, my bathroom lighting is notorious for not always being honest with me, so I made a mental note to check it in other lighting. So later that day, I was in my mom's car in the passenger seat and I looked in the mirror above me, and I literally groaned when I saw myself. I looked so, so, so PINK. I think I knew it already, deep down, that I looked pink, but I didn't want to believe it. But I could not deny it, looking in that mirror in natural light. Maybe it just oxidized weirdly on me (because it did not look nearly so pink in the bottle) but my neck was a completely different color than my face. Like, this sounds ridiculous, but it looked like I'd blended a light layer of calamine lotion on my face as my fdtn. Arghh! Foundation that's too pink or beige is a major peeve of mine (can you tell it's happened before? lol sorry for my little rant)
But, if you are fair and you DO have pink undertones, Ivory might be a really lovely shade for you! I really want to try the next shade up, hopefully the undertones will be more compatible with my skin! I'd be willing to give it a second try. I'll report back if I do.
EDIT 9/9/13: I tried the Vanilla and it is a PERFECT match for my skintone. I think it may actually be a bit lighter than Ivory, although it could just be my imagination. It doesn't have heavy yellow undertones but it leans warm and there's just enough yellow that it works for me. I realized though, that my skin is about NC15 right now, so a little darker than my usual so I don't know if this will work for me in the winter, for instance. And sadly I think the truly porcelain-complected amongst us may have a hard time finding a proper match
Fairly new in Australia.. one immediate dislike is that there no pump! It's 2013! Co'mon revlon!
It's pretty runny when your pour it so be careful, it's a light/medium coverage. personally won't repurchase. When I wear foundation I want full coverage if I want something light, might as wear a bb cream.. not their best.
