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.

i hate this foundation. it applies very nicely but i find it too runny. i also find it very sticky when it has been applied. i wore this foundation to school and i got home and the foundation had gone so bitty and patchy. it's not my moisturiser or my primer as i have used other foundations with these. it's definitely not worth it's money, i regret buying this and am so angry because i spent so much on it.

I enjoy this on days when I just want a sheer coverage foundation. It gives a gorgeous barely there finish. It is on the more expensive side of the drugstore but it was worth every penny. I use the Rimmel Stay Matte powder so it lasts pretty much the whole school day. But it gives enough coverage that I put it on in a quick fix situation

I was very disappointed with this product :( I was so excited to try it out. It is supposed to be light coverage, but I don't even feel it gives that. Maybe it was just wrong for my skin, but it did not make my skin look good. Totally the opposite of "naked'.

I wanted a drugstore foundation with light to medium coverage for everyday use. This foundation is hard to apply because it is so streaky. The coverage is decent. My skin is doing fairly well at the moment so all I have is a bit of redness. I don't think I will be getting this again since it does take a bit of blending.

I have the same problem with this as I have with PhotoReady; it doesn't seem to actually sink into your skin, it just sort of sits on the top of it and cakes and makes all your dry patches really noticeable. I don't think much of the colour either - Revlon foundations seem a bit grey/yellow to me? I have pretty dry skin but even when I moisturise I just get the nasty white scaly-looking film. So yeah. The packaging is pretty terrible too... I mean, it's good that it's in a glass bottle, but why can't there be a pump or ANYTHING on it that doesn't mean you have to tip out a whole load of it every time you want to use it? I don't like using foundation sponges but I thought I could just carefully tip a tiny bit onto the back of my hand. Have you tried doing that first thing in the morning?! No. no no no no no.

I was really torn between a 3 and 4 on this but ultimately settled on a 4 because this really is a very good foundation.
The good:
This has a very light thin texture which produces a very natural finish. I liked the texture because it didn't feel heavy or mask like and I like the finish - non cakey very nature. Neither very matte nor very luminous, just looked like natural skin to me.It has light medium coverage but is easily built up to solid medium coverage without loosing any of that natural finish. It dries fairly quick. Overall I loved the finish and the coverage. Definitely makes me look like me but better I am able to build up the areas that need a bit more by layer a second layer over the problem areas. Because it dries quick I don't need to wait forever to add that second layer.
Lasting power was decent - its no colourstay but lasts a full work day without issues. Since it's spring here in Toronto I can't really speak to how well it will hold up in more hot humid temps. But the staying power is definitely enough to at least get you through the work day.

The bad:
I'm sure you have heard this before, but I am not a fan of the colour selection. I found a dramatic jump between colours and while I can make one work for me, I would have to mix to get a perfect match and I'm not a fan of mixing. As a neutral person I am not fond of this warm and cool selection as I found them either too pink or too orange. Compared to the other colour selections that Revlon has in its other formulations (for which I have no trouble getting a match) the colour range in the nearly naked line leaves a lot to be desired. Paler girls will probably be out of luck here, normally I fit into the medium range of foundations and in this line I was in the light range.
The other gripe I had with this was the packaging - no pump. This is very runny and can get messy if you are not careful. I always end up pouring out more than I need or want.

Overall a good formula with poor packaging. If you can find a match and don't mind the lack of pump definitely give this a try. It has good coverage and lasting power and a lovely skin like finish.

This foundation is so good. I've used in the past Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk and Estee Lauder Invisible foundation.

I have to say this foundation is very good in terms of coverage, texture, scent. I looks fantastic on the skin just after it has been applied. It does not oxidise.

What I will say is that it doesn't last as long as the aforementioned two. Probable 4-6 hours. Armani would stay on until I took it off but Shade 55 was a bit too dark on me and 50 too light. The colour Nu for this Revlon foundation is perfect.

I think for your buck it's not bad, only downside is longevity. It doesn't make my pores look worse, it doesn't accentuate dry patches (to be fair I don't have many and it smells rather pleasant - not heavily scented but just smells nice - ya know!
