I have been loving this foundation. I usually go for more full coverage foundations but wanted something more natural looking. Revlon Nearly Naked sits beautifully on the skin and leaves a nice dewy finish. I tend to get a little oily on my t-zone so I always set this with a powder.

I loved this foundation! Not only was it really inexpensive here in canada for ten dollars
but its amazing. Its a really liquidy foundation which i loved for my dry skin and gives nice light-medium coverage. It looks and feels like i have no makeup on and the colour match was perfect! The only thing i would have to complain about is the packaging along with the smell but it goes away once you apply it. All in all its a great product and i will definitely repurchase

The first comment I want to make is on shade selection, simply because when I was looking for information, there was none... if you wear regular CS or CS whipped in BUFF 150, your best color match in this foundation will be VANILLA 120. They will look slightly different in the bottle but are incredibly close to being the same shade. This is obviously a much lighter formulation and I would call the coverage light to medium, dependant upon application method. My preferred method of application is a damp beauty blender knockoff as I feel it is too heavy with my fingers. If CS offers level 8-10 coverage, NN offers a 4-7. The finish is satin or natural, and wear is a solid 8 hours on my combination skin with no primer and no powder. I have applied Rimmel and MUFE powders over this and didn't care for either. I'm very impressed with the foundation and would definitely we purchase, especially considering it can be had for less than 10 dollars.

I bought this foundation two days ago on a whim and I am really glad I did. I love this foundation, but I think the secret lies in wearing the foundation and Nearly Naked powder TOGETHER.The results are naturally gorgeous. On its own, the foundation is great--it is of thinner consistency and actually feels good going onto the skin. That is one thing that is important to me because some foundations just feel too thick and gloopy going on and I can feel my pores clogging up on contact...anyway, I applied it with my MAC foundation brush and it blends in soooo easily-- quickly, light, and smooth. The coverage is beautiful- it is medium coverage, but it looks very natural and feels amazing because you can't "feel" it on. I only applied one coat and was really pleased with the coverage. I was afraid that two would be mask- like, but I may try two coats soon. It lasted through a night of dinner and drinks with friends---looked better longer than my Colorstay!
I am a regular Colorstay user (my shade is 400 caramel) so I went with 260 caramel in Nearly Naked. The NN caramel is slightly lighter than the Colorstay caramel, but it still matched my skintone. I used my flat top E.L.F. brush to apply the Nearly Naked powder over the NN foundation, and I buffed it on like I would a mineral foundation. My skin looked flawless! Best of all, it felt so nice. My skin just looked like smooth, blemish free skin- not makeup. I was previously hooked on Colorstay foundation with NYX matte not flat foundation powder over it. I think I found a new favorite!

I've only use this product once but I'm already sold. Granted, I haven't had much experience with liquid foundation although I've been using makeup for years. I've been using bb creams but I wanted to give liquid foundations another shot.

So although I agree that this foundation seems a little drying as compared to my skin79 bb cream (which I usually get online since you can't find it anywhere here in Canada), the shade I have (SHELL) matches my skin tone perfectly and blends like a dream. I pour a little the back of my hand, and although it's runny, I don't pour a lot out so it's fine. I use a brush (any big brush, blush/bronzer/flat top etc brush would work too as long as it's big) to apply and blend. This was done in NO TIME at all while I usually take ages trying to blend out my bb cream. I would say the converage is sheer-medium but 2 layers does the trick for me. I only need very minimal concealer and for everyday wear, I don't even need concealer under my eyes with this foundation. This foundation doesn't give you the "fake" feeling or look that other foundations might give you, it's truly naked-feeling and looking.

I don't really like the packaging though, wish it were in a pump/tube form, it'll be less messy and more sanitary. Overall I love this product.

Like some reviewers below, I love the UD Naked foundation but can't use it as I have no color match, unless I get two shades and mix them - too much of a hassle. I jumped for joy when I saw this new Revlon baby, presumably a dupe for the UD. No way! This isn't a horrible foundation, but certainly not the type that blends into your skin and is invisible, while giving you a more even, glowing skin tone. The Revlon Nearly Naked foundation sat on my skin and gave me a bit of a mask-like appearance, no matter how little I used and no matter how I applied it, it also oxidized after about 3 hours and turned tad darker.

I returned this.

I wanted to love this, I really did. I hate to write a negative review because I absolutely love Revlon for my drugstore makeup, especially the Colorstay foundation, but I did not like Nearly Naked. Right now I have dry-combination skin with hyperpigmentation on and dark red spots from new and old acne scars. While I love Colorstay, I wanted something that was lighter in formulation that could even out my skin tone and would require just concealer touch ups on my spots.. I understood that it would probably take a few layers of NN for the coverage I needed, but I bought it anyway from reading positive reviews of how it was easy to blend and thinking it would be a decent drugstore counterpart to Urban Decays Naked foundation (loved but expensive and I couldn't find a good colour match).

This Canadian dry winter really took a toll on my skin. I developed dry patches and suffered from mild rashes due to an allergic reaction. My skin is still healing but because it is so dry, my skin is constantly tight and flakey. When I use CS after exfoliating and moisturizing, my skin looks flawless. When I tried NN for the same way owever, it accentuated my dry skin patches and I had a terrible time blending it in. Surprisingly it also looked more cakey than my CS after setting with powder. I also can't stand the smell.. It kinda smells like plastic to me. While the formulation is what I was looking for and the colour matched me quite well, for the reason that it's hard to blend on my skin is why I dislike this product. I feel like this would work on normal or oily skin, not dry skin. I will still keep this in my makeup bag in hopes for summer.. But for now I'm still experimenting with it. Will update this review in the summer.

Swatched this with UD's Naked foundation on the same hand while I was at Ulta and really couldn't tell much of a difference (the Revlon took a little longer to set but that was about it). Ulta didn't have my color for UD and it's $$$ so I just decided to get the Revlon. It's pretty good! Thinner consistency, light but good coverage, doesn't feel like a mask like Revlon's Colorstay or my MAC Fx fluid. I would buy it again.

This makeup appeared to be developed using technology from the 1950's. It claims to be "nearly naked", and yet I haven't seen a foundation look so obvious on me in....ever! Ever. This was disgusting. I have fair skin.
