I bought this foundation in Ivory along with the powder in Fair and I'm really enjoying it! The color of both the foundation and powder match me well. The foundation does not have a pump so for those who aren't crazy about it, stay away! The foundation is quite liquidy and very thin however, it is buildable to Medium coverage. I used 2 layers and it covered my redness well but of course, I also touched up with a concealer for other minor areas. It took a few minutes to set and then I used the pressed powder which feels amazing! It is very smooth and does not have a "powdery" feel on the face which is always nice. The coverage to me is quite comparable to the Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation. Yea, yea I know...one is full coverage and the other is sheer/buildable; hence the name "Nearly naked" lol, but I can only speak for myself. All in all, I will def. repurchase...... I say, go try it!

I obtained this foundation because the hype. I been looking for a foundation that I can wear everyday that is light weight. I decided to purchase this foundation for 7.88 at Walmart. I wore it the next day, so can test it out. Foundation looks good on , I set the foundation with powder . I have combination oily skin. 2 hours in it was like a an oil slick , I couldn't wait to get home and get it off my face. I will be returning this product.
This product does not work on combo to oily skin.

Where has this product been all my life? When I saw the store display Revlon's newest foundation with a bright red 'NEW' sticker on the cap, I was a little skeptical. Revlon's famous Colorstay foundation worked for many people, but I was not one of them. But I nevertheless picked up the bottle in the shade 'Naked because I was in need of a new liquid foundation, my TM did not have enough moisture for winter weather. Now I know the name might imply that this is a sheer foundation, which was why I bought it, but this oversight worked in my favor, as I overestimated the quality of my skin, and boy did I ever need that extra level of coverage.
The foundation comes in a glass bottle, which is unhygienic to some, but I prefer it because it lets me get every little last drop of foundation out of the bottle in a way I can actually see. I applied it with my fingers and set it with clinque redness eliminating powder and buffed it.
The end result was very matte and my acne scarred and dry patched face looked so even and smooth. I assumed it was the often deceiving light in my bathroom, but I got many compliments throughout the day, so I know it wasn't just me.
At the end of the day, I was delighted to see the foundation come off on the make-up remover wipe. Every single other foundation I have tried has not shown up on my make-up remover, not even colorstay.
This is literally the best foundation I've ever used, as I have a unique combination of extremely dry and oily.This foundation did not fail me in covering up and maintaining both throughout the day. I will cry fat tears if they discontinue this.

I am about an NW20 for color reference. I have oily skin that can be dehydrated. I wear the color Shell 130, which oxidizes slightly.
I find the foundation to be WAY too sheer. I have to use 3 layers to attain the medium coverage I like.
The foundation doesn't set fast enough. It leaves my skin looking kind of shiny and tacky without using a setting powder.
Lasting power is pretty good considering how poorly it covers to begin with.
I would skip this product unless you don't have much of anything to cover, or if you are definitely going to use a setting powder with some coverage and oil-absorbing properties.

Revlon has a pretty good track record when it comes to foundations, so why is Nearly Naked my first one? I don't know really! I was on the fence about getting this foundation because I have a handful of half empty foundations and bb creams that I wanted to finish before adding any new ones to my collection, but out of all the recently released foundations, this one appealed to me most, so I grabbed a bottle as soon as I could. Revlon says that this liquid foundation is "so refreshingly light, it melts right in, creating a fresh, even look, so the only one who knows you're wearing makeup is you!". Revlon always seems to offer a fairly good shade range; Nearly Naked is available in sixteen shades, I have the shade Vanilla (120), the second lightest, and the lightest I've seen for sale in stores. Nearly Naked contains SPF 20. I bought my bottle at Walmart for a reasonable $7.49, like most Revlon foundations it'll sell for between $7-11, depending on where you buy. Revlon does not test on animals. This foundation was made in America.
This foundation's packaging looks nice, but it isn't the most functional. The bottle is rectangular and made of sturdy feeling glass. A label is affixed to the front of the bottle, featuring the name of the product and the Revlon logo, written in silver lettering, along with the shade name. Sadly, this lettering is starting to rub off already! You know how in yesterday's Olay Complete Moisturizer Review I said not to be turned off by your products having "drug facts" labels? Well, I still believe that, but I do find it a little concerning that Revlon Nearly Naked's drug facts peel off sticker turns out to be an eleven page mini-pamphlet. I am not even exaggerating. The bottle is topped off with a white, square plastic cap that somehow makes the bottle seem fancy. I don't know, for some reason white packaging of any sort makes me think high end, maybe I'm just easily impressed. Removing the cap reveals an open hole for pouring out product. Why Revlon? Why not a pump? Your other foundations have pumps, and the consistency of this one is not conducive to being pump-free. It's far too easy to overpour, I do almost every time I use Nearly Naked.
Revlon's Nearly Naked liquid foundation is really...liquidy. Revlon says this foundation's "buildable coverage and seamless blending will cover flaws and perfect your skin's tone and texture with no heavy, cakey, greasy mess." With a consistency this thin, there's no way it could be heavy! This super lightweight foundation is best applied with fingers or a sponge - I use my trusty Avon Precision Grip Blender. I get light buy adequate coverage from Nearly Naked, but I feel like a second "coat" could boost the coverage up to medium without getting cakey. Nearly Naked is such an apt name for this foundation! My skin looks very, very natural when I wear this liquid foundation. My redness is reduced down to a soft rosiness, my acne scars are diminished, and my complexion looks more even, overall. The finish of this foundation is very natural, not too matte or dewy, it looks like healthy, makeup-free skin! You know how Revlon claimed no one will know I'm wearing foundation? Funny they say that, I've gotten comments on how healthy my skin looks, and that it looks like I'm not wearing makeup while wearing this. Revlon's Nearly Naked has never oxidized on me, which is great, but I can't seem to get all day wear from it. Nearly Naked gives me roughly six hours of wear before it starts to break down. Even after it's started to melt away this foundation doesn't great greasy on me, which is pretty impressive. Revlon's Nearly Naked is so comfortable to wear, it truly feels like I'm not wearing foundation.
Is Revlon's Vanilla a good color match for me? Yes, if the key word is "good". It suits me, but it's not quite perfect. If the lightest shade Ivory was available to me, I'd opt for that one over Vanilla, but this will certainly do. This shade is only the tiniest bit dark for me, it's the undertone that's wrong. Vanilla has a soft yellow undertone to it, nothing anyone would notice unless they were really analyzing my skin. Compared to Rimmel's Match Perfection, the yellow undertone is nothing. I swatched Nearly Naked along with all my other foundations, and this is my second best match after Maybelline's FitMe 110.
Revlon's Nearly Naked Foundation is wonderful for day to day wear, but I'll need something more for work days. The finish and coverage is just right for me, this is probably the most natural looking, skin-like foundation that I've tried. The color matches me pretty well, but I think I'd choose the lightest shade if I repurchase. I feel like the $7-11 price tag is fair, even better if I can score a deal on it. I have noticed that I seem to be going through the bottle quickly, which is strange because I feel like I use less of this foundation. Before I wrap things up, I should mention that some people have claimed that Nearly Naked is similar to or even a dupe for high end foundations like Nars' Sheer Glow and Urban Decay's Naked Skin, I wouldn't know though, I've tried neither. I do find this foundation somewhat similar to Maybelline's FitMe. I really like this liquid foundation, it may be my new favorite! I recommend Revlon's Nearly Naked foundation if you have dry to slightly oily skin and want a natural looking foundation with light to medium coverage.

COLOR: This line's shades are very peachy, more so than their original Colorstay line. For reference, Colorstay in Sand Beige (normal/dry formula) is slightly too dark and pink so I was looking for one foundation that would match even better. I bought Nearly Naked in both Vanilla (too light and peach) and Shell (too peach). I am a pale olive and through these trials of foundations, I can see why MAC's coloring system is the way it is and why it's effective (if you're wondering why yellow skin tones are "cool" or "neutral-cool", it's because it is closer to green, a cool color, than red).
FORMULA: The formula is horrible. I have combo/dry skin and while it looks great upon application, it wears down horribly. It accentuates dry areas and pools in pores (and I don't have large pores).
PRICE: It's a little cheaper than their other lines at around $7-$8.
PACKAGING: This needs to be in a pump of some sort. Just FYI, look on eBay for "airless pumps" for those who do like the foundation but not the packaging.
This is going back to the store. I guess I'm waiting for the next foundation release.

This is a typical drugstore foundation, nothing to make it stand out from the crowd. I purchased it in shade caramel, as it was harder to find the deeper shades in multiple stores. Color selection is severely lacking. I expect more from Revlon by now. Typically I swear by Revlon Colorstay but it can be high-maintenance. I was looking for a fresh, easy, breathable foundation (with slightly more coverage than a tinted moisturizer). There is no pump applicator, and it pours out very liquidy. When smoothed on the color matched my skin fairly well. It photographs beautifully at first (no white cast, not ashy). Unfortunately, it does not last! I have incredibly oily skin, but in the cooler months I am less so. It set to a semi-matte finish even with the Nearly Naked Powder over it. I don't like to look dewy so soon after I first apply, and within 3 hours I was an oily mess. With Colorstay I never have to touch up that early, even without a setting powder. I was very disappointed. Also, coverage fades away as the day progresses. I will return it and resume my lightweight foundation hunt. Le sigh.

I love it!! I have the shade 120 Vanilla. I wanted a foundation that would cover my redness and even my skin tone and this does the job. It also seems to smooth out my pores pretty well. What I really like about it is that I can barely tell I'm wearing makeup!! It has been a week and I haven't had any breakouts.
If only it had a pump ... sigh.
This foundation wears off too quickly and leaves my pores EXTREMELY visible ... you can see the makeup plugged up in them :(
I love my EL Doublewear and Tarte Amazonian Clay foundations, so I will just stick with that.
Nice try, Revlon. But, I am tossing this one in the trash.

I really enjoy this product! It is thin and liquidy with light but buildable coverage and a satin finish on my dry skin. There's a very faint neutral scent that is not heavy or bothersome and a very slight silicone slip to this product.
SHADE MATCH --- I am around NC20 (slightly lighter) with heavy yellow undertones. In Colorstay, I wear 150 Buff which is a tiny bit too light but is the correct undertone. I wanted to purchase this product in 120 Vanilla but my store was sold out so I purchased a shade darker in 130 Shell. Although Shell looked very dark in the bottle, it actually applies much lighter and is a fairly close match although slightly darker than I'd prefer. I might buy the lighter shade and mix the two.
MY SKIN TYPE --- I have dry skin that is generally even-toned except for moderate redness at the cheeks and mild scarring or hyperpigmentation here and there. Finding a foundation that covers it without looking cakey nor emphasizing dry patches is very difficult. I usually opt for lighter coverage products that are buildable to two coats (e.g. Asian BB creams, tinted moisturizers or a light foundation such as Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum).
COVERAGE --- This product works very well to even my skin tone and cover problem areas while allowing my natural skin to show through. It really doesn't look like I have anything on at all because it covers while giving the appearance of leaving the areas that are perfectly fine alone. If you only need mild to moderate coverage, this product is perfect! It is definitely not for those who like a heavy coverage.
TEXTURE & FINISH --- Generally, I dab products around my face, tap it in with my fingers, and then tap a second layer on problem areas such as my cheeks and scars. Colorstay is too thick and dries too quickly for this method. This product works perfectly because it's very liquidy and thin but not so thin that dabbing it around my face would cause the product to drip. I hate a heavy silicone feel to my base makeup and although there is a slight silicone slip as I apply this, it's not thick or bothersome and I don't feel it on my face once the product is applied. It really feels like skin. It is nicely buildable to two layers. It could be built beyond two but you won't get any better coverage so I don't recommend doing it since it will take a long time to set so many layers.
LASTING POWER: It does take a while to set (5 minutes for 1 layer and 10 minutes for 2) but it will set without powder which is a huge plus for me. It doesn't last quite all day the way a long-lasting foundation would but it lasts so much better than BB creams or tinted moisturizers. About 5 hours without powder.
OVERALL: So far, I really like this product for when I want something that has slightly better coverage and lasts longer than a BB cream. I think it's really perfect for those who don't like or don't need foundation on a daily basis. I have very dry skin and this works very nicely (drier gals having trouble might not have enough moisturizer beforehand). It has almost no scent and gives a satin finish. If you normally go for tinted moisturizers or BB creams, you'll really love this. It's very reasonably priced and with a sale, it's even better!
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Blond, Straight Eyes: Blue
Overall Rating: 3/5
SKIN BACKGROUND: Oily, acne prone, SUPER sensitive, mild scarring and discoloration, beige skin with dominant yellow undertones.
PRICE: $7-$10 US Dollars, which is a good price for DS foundations.
FINISH: As many have said, I find this to be a satin finish. However, I find that it can be very streaky, even when I used my fingers.
TEXTURE: VERY liquidy
SCENT: Yes, there is an odd scent that I dont like very much
LASTING POWER: I was surprised how well this lasted, considering how liquidy it was. However, as the day went on, I could definitely feel it on my face. It was very goupy and gucky feeling :(
SHADES: I bought this in Vanilla which ended up being too light. I don't think they have an accurate amount of shades that can cater to those with deeper skin tones.
DID THIS BREAK ME OUT?: No, I dont believe so
PACKAGING: I hate the packaging. I usually dont mind open top bottles, as long as they have a secure top... Which this one doesn't. I feel like I can't travel with this, because the foundation would leak and get all up into the cap.
WOULD I REPURCHASE?: Sadly, no.
FINAL VERDICT: I don't hate this at all, but I really just wasn't all that impressed. Probably will just give this to a friend to try.
