I am actually very pleasantly surprised at this foundation.
I have been using the Revlon Colorstay Whipped which I have been in love with but figured when I needed to repurchase that I would give this one a go. (I had a coupon and for $5.00, who cares right?) Let me also just say...I live in AZ...It is summer now. I'm talking about 115 degrees outside. Not kidding. I have oily skin that is sensitive, blemish-y and acne prone. The fact that I have given this foundation 4 "lippies" is already saying something.
So yes, it is light to medium coverage and is very build-able. I like a good medium coverage, (which with this foundation is 2 thin layers) and then Ill go in a spot conceal where I need it so as to avoid "cake-face". I set this with my wonderful Rimmel Stay Matte Powder very lightly.
If you have used the Colorstay Whipped you will know what I mean when I say that the longer you wear it throughout the day the better it looks...This is pretty much the beauty of that except no wait time, but still lasts just as long on me. I think this formula is actually better int the heat!
Also, I just wanted to add that in the summer, I actually find it counter intuitive to wear primer because its just too damn heavy. So I use a few sprays of either UD All Nighter or ELF Mist and Set and a "base".
Regardless, I think this is really a wonderful summer foundation. You can really play around with it to get it to work in different ways and it's very forgiving.
The only thing I have any issue with is the packaging. Just not a fan or regular bottle packaging.

This is not for anyone with skin texture problems. The micro shine that gives the dewy finish exaggerates blemishes and scars. I also found that this oxidized and seeped into my fine lines. I returned it.

Oh my. I LOVE this foundation. lovely coverage that looks natural, amazing skin like finish that doesn't make us oily skinned gals look like a frying pan of Mcdonalds chips. I really love this, cannot recommend it enough to any skin type. I have dry patches due to my acne meds, and this foundation doesn't accunate them at all. One bad thing though, is that there is no frickin' pump!!!

I love this foundation for a really natural look. Unlike Revlon Colorstay it didn't look cakey on my skin and looked great when applied with my fingers or a foundation brush. The packaging isn't fantastic but I really don't mind it that much. I have oily skin and this lasts for probably about 4 hours before I notice any oily-ness which is fine with me. As far as the price make sure you look around at different stores because you can usually get a $2 off coupon and the cheapest I've seen it for is around $7.99 at Target which is way better than like $10.99 at Walgreens.

My skin type is normal, and I have favor a more dewy finish. This particular foundation isn't dewy, but it does a provide a "glow from within." In my opinion, I have a decent complexion: I don't break out nor do I have many blemishes, so I do prefer light-coverage foundations - this is it for me. I don't use much product, so I can't say if it has medium coverage. I'm a tan Filipino, and I use 200 Warm Beige, which is a bit dark for me, but since it is summer, I'm sure I will warm up to that shade.

I am African American and wear the Caramel color. This stuff sucks! I have oily skin and this only makes it work. From sitting at my desk at work and not doing anything oil is all over my face! I try to blot it or put powder on and it still does not help!!! It has horrible coverage. It is a perfect example of CHEAP drugstore makeup. Don't waste your money.

No. Just... No. First of all, the coverage is not good. It's supposed to be sheer but it really is noticeable on your face. The color Vanilla was a great match.. Until it oxidized. Then it was off and kinda orangey. The finish looked gross on me. It settled into my pores.. Last of all, it broke me out. I don't think makeup has ever done this to me.. I bought the powder AND the liquid and I'm stuck with it now. :( I'm beyond pissed and very disappointed. I like Revlon but this stuff is trash

I love this! Ugh where do I start? First of all, the staying power blew me away. And that's saying something for me, because I sweat A LOT. (Thanks a lot Dad for your sweat genes). I wore this through a 6 1/2 work day of running around taking orders and making food at a restaurant. And it's summer, which doesn't help the sweat thing. I blotted several times throughout the day, and none of the foundation transfered. Not a stitch! By the end of the work day, my foundation still looked great. It's basically everything I wanted Maybelline's Fit Me foundation to be.
Next, it's the perfect color for my skin. I have the color 200 Warm Beige. For reference, I'm NC 40/42 in mac foundations. And mac tends to be a little too yellow for me. The Nearly Naked is the perfect blend of yellow undertones with a slight hint of pink.
The coverage of this foundation is light. You can build it up a little but not too much. This is perfect for me because most medium and full coverage foundations don't look good on me. It evens out my skin tone without looking mask like. I wouldn't recommend it for people who want medium to full coverage.
The price is good too. I got mine for under $9. I'd say that's pretty reasonable. If I remember correctly, Revlon's PhotoReady was around $11. Nine dollars is much cheaper than my beloved Makeup Forever Face and Body ($40). Nearly Naked doesn't quite have the same luminosity as MUFE but that's easily remedied with a bit of highlighter.
I'm really glad I decided to get this. I've been umming and ahhing over this since I saw people jumping on the bandwagon on youtube. It was a bit of an impulse buy, but totally worth it. The fact that it doesn't have a pump is a bit annoying, but not enough to down rate this. Plus I'm not a germaphobe about touching makeup products. Just wash your hands before use.

I had such rollercoaster-like feelings with this foundation. At first i was in love love with it now im kind of just "in-like" this foundation does have SPF so watch out for flash photography. When I applied this it blended so nicely and really felt light, it lasted long enough 6-8 hours on my normal to combo skin, the coverage is a medium with one layer and could possibly be built up to full. The one thing that threw me off is that it made me look orange during and after application so ehhhh its not very pretty under direct sunlight so it's just sitting in my drawer now.

This foundation is true to its name. Very light weight and lets your skin show through. Easy to apply and blend. Gives light to medium coverage which can be built up. Just wish it had a pump.
