I wanted to purchase this foundation because it was really talked about and mainly had only positive reviews. I'm also a fan of sheer foundations because I don't need anything too heavy for my skin. Unfortunately for us in the UK, we only had the 'cool' shades released around my skin tone and I don't know why that is because I think that 'yellow' tones are generally more flattering especially for medium/olive skin tones. I didn't realise this until I purchased the foundation and it really shows. I'm about nc35 and went for true beige 190 for the spring/summer season! It has really pink undertones and although the finish is nice, the colour dulls my skin and makes my skin look a little ?dirty. I can't quite pinpoint the effect this has but nonetheless it's not good. I feel it's a bit unfair to give this foundation a low rating for a wrong shade but revlon should really have released a better shade selection in the UK.

This foundation does not work on my normal/dry skin. I tried using for a week and my skin started peeling. I even tried to mix this with a moisturizing foundation ( Nars Sheer Glow) and it was still too drying. If you are oily and looking for something sheer, this might work.

I'm a tad too pale for the regular facial MAC foundations, and my bottle of NEARLY NAKED foundation is in Ivory. The base leans toward pink more then yellow - Perfect for me.


Where to start? This seems to melt in to my skin, leaving no tide marks or visible strokes and it feels weightless, despite a build-able medium coverage. The finish is very similar to my NARS Sheer Glow; Silky smooth, with an almost poreless look and a glowing satin finish, that lasts all day. It'll cover discolouration/uneveness and minor blemishes, but if I have a spot I'll need to use a concealor.


Best of all, there were no patches of dry skin, itching or feelings of tightness on the dry and sensitive skin on my face, which almost every other foundation Ive tried has left. There will be some shine on my face at the end of the day, but not too much and it won't look very oily if you leave, and a touch of powder takes care of the shine if you prefer to have none.


I haven't suffered from any breakouts whilst I've been using NEARLY NAKED foundation. This foundation is perfect for those of us who have dry skin, and/or struggle to find drugstore foundations that don't have overly yellow undertones [I'm in the UK, most drugstore brands maiy produce yellow toned foundations here].

This is currently my fave drugstore foundation. It blends well, looks natural, and has enough yellow undertones to match my complexion. I just wish it had a pump. Great buy!

I have dry skin that is prone to breakouts around my chin. This stuff looks smooth on my face. However, I do find that you need the right moisturizer to put under this. I was using a more matte moisturizer when I started to use this, which I found was much better than the oily sunscreen moisturizer I am using now. It sometimes does accentuate dry areas. Overall, I am really on the fence about this product and will probably repurchase in the future to make up my mind about it.

I bought this product on sale for CAD 10.99. I was initially going for the CS but it wasnt on sale :( .. so i picked this one instead. I used this without a primer for the first couple times and it did slide off or disappear after 5-6 hours, even though it looked beautiful at first. I have dry patches on my cheeks and extremely oily skin between my brows, on my nose and chin. I decided to use a primer underneath. I applied my Becca ever matte primer before the foundation, then buffed the foundation with a sephora foundation brush. IT LOOKED AMAZING! it looked like i did not have foundation on. and it did cover up some slight redness around my nose and forehead. After dusting a layer of powder, this foundation stayed on my skin for up to 12 hours...incredible. It only got a 4 for me because a primer is a must. if you have normal skin, you might not need a primer.

I would say that this foundation has a light to medium coverage, easy to layer up without getting cakey (not saying it wouldnt get cakey if you apply 5 layers LOL!) and not TOO shiney if you dont use a powder. No weird scent, easy to blend and apply.

This foundation was a dream to work with. I tried it using a damp sponge and a kabuki brush; both gave me a fantastic finish--slightly dewy (which I like). I only used one layer on problem areas and its medium coverage managed to cover up redness and any discoloration. I still had to use concealer on one pimple on my cheek, but I have to do that with every foundation. I wore this for 7 hours before I washed it off, but it looked just as good when I freshly applied it in the morning. I think I could have gone for another 4 more hours and it still would have looked good (maybe a little bit more dewy, but not nearly enough to touch up). This would have been my HG foundation if it matched my skin. I am Asian NC20 and bought two colors (Vanilla and Shell). Vanilla was too light for me (if you're NC15, I think it could work). And Shell was the perfect shade, but wrong undertone. It was more peachy than yellow, so even after powder and blush, my face and neck were still different colors. My neck was noticeably more yellow. If Shell was on the same magnitude of yellow as Vanilla, it would have actually been my perfect shade. If Revlon comes out with a shade like Shell, but more yellow, I would gladly repurchase.

(I forgot to add: I have combination skin (dry cheeks/oily nose), but if you have very oily skin, I'm not sure this would work for you.)

UPDATE: I rediscovered this in Shell, and it matches me extremely well now. I'm currently using Bourjois in 52, and it's more gray than Shell; and Shell actually matches me better so if you are NC20, I definitely recommend Shell.

This is actually a good, simple, and relatviely inexpensive foundation that does its job. It doesn't get oily or end up cakey on the skin, and it feels light/nonexistant when wearing it. It has slight dewey glow, but depending on the creasing around your eyes, it can settle into fine lines. Overall, it is quick and easy to apply, and for the price and it's claims. It is a good purchase.

I'm a MAC NC44 and I use this in toast. It's a perfect match on my south-indian skin.

I love the consistency - how it glides on my skin and how it covers. I'm 47 but my skin isn't that wrinkled, so I can't speak to how it would work on younger skin or skin that has lots of wrinkles.

I am going through the onset of menopause (skipping periods, etc) and my skin is dry and tends to break out - this doesn't aggravate it at all.

I'm a fan - for now, this is my foundation.

Overhyped. The packaging sucks. It's just like the Colorstay where you have to pour the foundation out and of course you always get way too much and create a mess on the back of your hand. This foundation is also really runny, and I found that it really settled into my pores and accentuated the little bit of flakiness around my nostrils and chin. It managed to be both grossly oily and quite drying at the same time. If you haven't tried this foundation yet, save yourself the trouble and just skip it. The best Revlon foundation by far is their PhotoReady liquid.
