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.

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.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Sensitive, Olive Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Brown
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.

Ok, y'all got me to buy this. It's painfully average. It's almost like Revlon wanted to capitalize on the buzz surrounding the liquid version, so they pulled a pressed powder out of their butt too. Well, the coverage sucks, the finish is just ok, and the package is nice, but huge. It's expensive for a mediocre drugstore powder, so I suggest passing. There's better. And cheaper.

Revlon's newest powder, Nearly Naked, is claimed to give "undetectable coverage, unbelievable complexion" with a texture so "refreshingly light it melts right in, creating a fresh, even look. Pressed powder blends seamlessly with a lightweight feel". This powder can be used alone or in conjunction with the fabulous Nearly Naked Liquid Foundation. This powder is available in six shades, I have the lightest shade; Fair. I wasn't very enthused about buying this powder, I have a couple other pressed powders to use, one I haven't even gotten into yet, but I wanted to review it along with the foundation. I bought my 8g (.28oz) compact at Walmart for $7.49, which is a little more than I'd like to pay for a powder. Revlon claims that they do not test on animals, but I was recently alerted to some controversy that I need to check into, so please do your own research as well. This powder was made in America.
Revlon's Nearly Naked Pressed Powder has lovely packaging, but it's definitely on the bigger side. The compact is white, plastic, and rectangular with a clear window to show the shade. Revlon's logo and the product name are written on the front of the compact in silver lettering. A small, circular label is affixed to the back of the compact that peels up to reveal a full ingredient list. I already mentioned in my Nearly Naked Foundation review, but I associate white packaging with high end products for some reason, I just think this powder's compact looks so nice. The long, rectangular compact flips up to reveal a small mirror, a small puff, and a round pan of powder. I've actually been using the puff for testing purposes, and it's actually decent, but I probably won't continue to use. Anyway, packaging looks really nice and feels sturdy, but it's prone to fingerprints and general messiness.
Revlon's Nearly Naked Pressed Powder has a very good texture. It's firmly pressed and extremely smooth. This powder kicks up next to no residual powder, even if you swirl a brush around in it. Due to it's density, this powder will probably last me forever. Nearly Naked's finish is decent, it looks fairly natural, just a tad powdery, nothing you'd notice if you weren't all up in my face. Like most powders, Nearly Naked has a tendency to grab dry patches, which I wasn't aware I even had. I rarely wear powder alone, so I'm not sure if the slightly tight feeling I get from Nearly Naked is normal, or it's drying my skin a little. I'm leaning towards the latter. Nearly Naked doesn't get cakey, even when layered over the matching foundation. On it's own, this pressed powder evens out my skin tone, reduces redness, and blurs the appearance of my awkward adult acne. Applied over Nearly Naked foundation, this powder adds a touch more coverage, but also gives my foundation a streaky, less even appearance; not enough to wreck it, but it certainly doesn't look flawless. Maybe I'll try this powder over another foundation, but I find it odd that it doesn't worth with it's sister product.
Is Fair a good match for me? Not really. This powder has a moderate peachy undertone to it. In a swatch and in the pan, you can't really pick up the peachiness, but it really shows up on my skin. The shade is a little too dark as well, but workable. I think the whole shade range may run slightly darker/warmer than the rest of Revlon's products. I compared my Revlon Nearly Naked to my Mum's ColorStay powder, both in fair, and there is a noticeable difference in shade and undertone, though it was quite hard to photograph. If I continue to use this powder I'll probably have to wait til Spring/Summer.
Overall I feel like Revlon's Nearly Naked Pressed Powder is only ok. The finish is nice, but the powder feels a little cloying and heavy on my skin. I don't like that this product works poorly with it's matching liquid foundation. Fair's tone is a little off compared to other Revlon "Fair" shades. I'm kinda disappointed by this powder, Nearly Naked foundation is so, so good, but this powder is only so, so. I don't really want to continue using it, I might pass it on to Mum when she finishes her ColorStay, or a friend that likes pressed powder. This is a good option if you're looking for a drugstore pressed powder to use on it's own, but skip it if you were hoping to to use it with the matching foundation. If you're as pale as I am, or paler, the shade "Fair" just won't cut it, but you'll likely find a match if you're in the light/medium range, or darker. The quality of the product and it's packaging is good, but not fantastic, and I'm not quite sure if it's worth the $7-9 you'll pay for it.

For reference, I am an NC15 and or N5 in MAC Foundations. I bought this in FAIR along with the "Nearly Naked" foundation in IVORY and I really like it! The powder is so silky and smooth and doesn't have a "powdery" feel to the skin which is why I am enjoying it so much. It covers well and doesn't feel heavy at all. I will def repurchase.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Medium, Warm Hair: Brown, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Brown
I have combination to oily skin
I'm about NC30 in MAC
Shade match: Light - it is just a tiny bit dark for me.
I use the nearly naked foundation and as well as tinted moisturizers and set it with a light dusting of the Nearly Naked Powder in Light. You have to be light handed with the powder because it can look a little too heavy. I was using my powder puff before but I find using a brush (pushing it on the skin not sweeping) makes it go on lighter and more natural looking. I like that the powder is sort of a satin natural finish. It doesn't make me any oilier nor did I see any oxidation, separation or caking. I really like the texture, very soft and not at all chalky. So far I'm really liking this powder. Just need a shade lighter but I have check that out.
