i can't tell you how much i adore this foundation!! before this, i used revlon's colorstay foundation. i liked it but i'd say the coverage was a bit too heavy for my liking despite the hype it had received from the blogosphere
it was not until my friend introduced me to this had i dare to say i found my new HG foundation.
- very natural looking. You can't go wrong with this foundation. the nearly naked foundation won't cake you up. it gives a nice light-medium coverage. however it is buildable on more problematic areas. considering my skin is clear and i just wear foundation to just even out my skintone, this did the exact job and gave me a perfect, flawless complexion
- it is more expensive than other drugstore brands particularly here in australia retailing for 25. luckily i got it on special and picked it up for 16
- unfortunately it did oxidise throughout the day slightly
- did not control my oily skin despite being
- i'm not a huge fan of the pump free packaging. Not only is it more difficult for me to control the amount of product i use but it's also unhygienic and unsuitable to carry around in my make up bag as i do find foundation tips over onto the lid
overall i love natural looking foundations and this has been the best one yet! until i experiment with more light-medium coverage foundations that are natural looking, the revlon nearly naked foundation will remain my HG foundation

This foundation made my skin very greasy and break out easily, but it covered up my blemishes somewhat.

To be honest, I did not like this foundation at first...it didn't have enough coverage, the color was all wrong, and I didn't feel like my skin looked like skin...BUT, I used this foundation with a damp beauty blender which sheered out the foundation even more than it already comes. So I experimented a little and I didn't like it with my Sonia kashuk flattop buffer brush or a regular foundation brush (toooo much work to blend in) so today I decided to revisit this foundation and use my coastal scents flat top buffer brush (from the elite brush collection ...its very fluffy and easily distributes product; not stiff like the Sonia kashuk brush) and OMG the application was amazing. I feel like the brush actually pushed the foundation into my skin and gave me nice all over even coverage and even made the color match fit me more AND my skin looked completely natural...I love this foundation...I think its great. I won't go as far as saying holygrail cuz I'm testing out about 5 foundations along with different applications but this one has a definite place on my vanity. I bought the shade cappuccino and I am a 7.5 in Mac match master foundation. I used my bare minerals concealer under my eyes, Mac mineralize skin finish all over to set the foundation and elfs contouring blush duo in turks and Caicos and their liquid lipstick in bark for a nude look today and omg my face is BEAT even without the heavy contouring and highlighting I like to do...this combo will be my go to work routine 10 minute beat for the winter... I jus love how this foundation covers yet sinks into my skin. Wear time is normal for me, 8 hours with blotting twice...not bad. No oxidation at all from initial sink in. Price is good, juz wish it had a pump....

unless you have already nice skin you want to even out, yes I'm talkin' 'bout you, 13 year old girls who feel the need to wear makeup
For girls with scarring (and yes I'm aware some young girls do have this problem) this will just make you look like you have bad skin and have foundation on.

Gives a lovely natural texture to the skin and lasts nearly all day on my dry-ish skin, with some fading in the evening. I don't have any problems with breakouts which is a major plus for me!
My only wish is that it was a little more full coverage; I have to use concealer if I want a truly "flawless" look. Also, the color selection is a bit limited. I use the lightest shade (and it matches well), but I am defo not in the porcelain range, so pale pale people might not be able to find a match.

For reference i have combo skin, usually on the drier side especially where i have or am fighting acne and can get oily with moisturizer. I have tried the foundation with and without moisturizer, always with a primer, and even thought moisturizer can sometimes make my face oily i like the foundation when i've applied the moisturizer. The product alone is more of a runny consistency. Many say its a very sheer coverage but i find it to actually have more of a medium coverage. I personally do not like the initial application because of how runny the product is, with the foundation brush its quite streaky. If i let it dry a little and go back to blend i love the end result. It covers my redness and minor acne marks and leaves a glow to my face. I like it over a moisturizer and primer and a translucent because it has a light dewy finish. Without the moisturizer i still used to powder and got a very very matte finish. Id say the staying power is pretty strong for me because i still have good coverage after 8 hrs. My skin is light-medium and of course changes with seasons, i was guided towards a shade ivory and nude because of my cool undertones. Ivory is very light and i find nude to be a tad too dark for my skin but if i mix it with my lighter products i get a great shade. Overall GREAT foundation for the price!

About my skin: Sensitive eczema prone, dry patches around nose and lips, massive pores, oily down T-zone, dehydrated skin, blemishes here and there.
I bought this foundation because it was on sale and due to all the hype I had heard on the blogosphere. In Australia it is priced at $25 but I purchased it 50% off at Chemist Warehouse - $12.50. I would recommend waiting for a sale.. because $25 is expensive for a drugstore foundation!
For shade reference. I am roughly an NC20 in MAC terms (have not purchased a MAC foundation in ages though!). Beige in Bobbi Brown. 52 Healthy Mix, 53 in Healthy Mix Serum for Bourjois foundation. My Asian skin tone is slightly more yellow than neutral but not overly yellow (if that makes sense!). Revlon Nearly Naked in Shell is PERFECT for my skin tone. When swatching in stores, I swatched the 4 lightest shades against my jawline and hairline/forehead. Ivory was too light. Vanilla was okay, Shell was okay also, Nude was too dark.
Removing the swatches, I applied Vanilla to one side of my face and Shell to the other side, walked around the store for about 15 mins to leave it to settle. Once it settled with my natural oils, the colour change proved Vanilla made my complexion washed out + slight difference between neck and head. Shell on the other hand provided a little bit more warmth so I settled on Shell. Shell leaves no demarcations between head and neck. I would suggest leaving the initial oxidisation to occur before selecting shade. From be 3 weeks of wear, I have noticed that colour does not oxidise throughout the day after INTIAL oxidisation.
I will be honest. I hated this foundation at first. It highlighted the dry patches around my nose.. and settled into the frown lines on my forehead (Mate, I am bloody 21! What is this sorcery?!). I tried different moisturisers, primers and whatever else. Turns out, I was using the wrong brush with this foundation. My Real Techniques Expert Face brush was proving to be overboard. I changed to a damp Real Tech. stippling brush and then, IT HAPPENED. Magic happened. My face was flawless, natural satin finish. Radiating from within. This foundation also works wonderfully with a damp sponge!
It does not cover redness around my nose with one layer but I use concealer with this foundation anyway. Skin is evened out and minor blemishes are covered. Does not break me out. The wear time for this foundation is good. I wore it for roughly 9 hours and it began to look shiny NOT oily down the T-zone. I always powder/set after application with Rimmel Stay Matte.
Would definitely buy this foundation again! When I finish my Bourjois foundations.
As for the cons? ... Don't get me started on the lack of pump. It's like Revlon made this foundation perfect and didn't put a pump to piss the heck out of us. Screw your head on right Revlon!

I freaking love this stuff. If this stuff was discontinued I would cry, it's that good. I wear this everyday with my MAC warm soul blush, and I get so many compliments on how natural, perfect, and glowing my skin is! To all my ladies suffering from redness in their cheeks and nose like I am, this stuff will be your saving grace. Not going to lie, the packaging sucks, but other than that this foundation is pretty close to perfect. It doesn't makes me break out, the coverage is buildable, but what I like most of all is how my skin still looks like my skin. Thank you Revlon!

Finally a revlon foundation I can wear. Nice mix of yellow and brown undertones. I'm nc40-45 in mac depending on the season. I wear 200 warm beige when I'm lighter and 240 toast when I'm darker. I mix both accordingly as my skintone changes. I have combination skin, oily in the t-zone and break out prone. It gives a nice skin like finish. Not matte, but not dewey either. Coverage is light. Won't conceal any blemishes, but it will even out your skintone and cancel out some redness. Lasting power could be better, but that is fixed by using primer and setting powder afterwards. This is my go to foundation for day to day. When I'm runnnig really late, I mix it with some of my moisturuzer, and apply like a TM. Makes it look like I have naturally even toned skin. For the price this can't be beat.

I have oily skin and like to conceal the various black spots on my face. My friend recommended using this foundation as an alternative to the Colorstay. I am not a big fan of this. First I have yellow undertones and the Carmel shade appeared dull on my face. It gave me an ashy look. It's sheer coverage did nothing to conceal my spots and it broke me out after 6 hours of wearing it. Also it made me oily in 4 hours
