Man those eyebrows were such a pain in the ass to do that day. #oneofthosedays
Soooo I’m gonna review Revlon Nearly Naked foundation this time. I must admit, I didn’t have high hopes after the Revlon Airbrush Mousse Foundation fiasco, but boy was I wrong.
Price: I bought it at 10.99$ at Target Canada (Y U CLOSING TARGETTT…). It has 30mL, and a little goes a LONG way.
Packaging: Stupid bottle. It needs a pump! Either you pour too much or not enough, and you end up wasting some product or pouring it back in, which is not hygienic. As I said, a little goes a LONG way, so without a pump, the amount is very difficult to control. Every single reviews on the Revlon foundations (like ColorStays) must be complaining about the non existant pump, Y U NO CHANGE DIS, REVLON?
Coverage: Light to medium, but I would say on the lighter side of medium. I wouldn’t add more than 1-2 layers, because it might accentuate dry patches, but it’s buildable if you don’t have this problem.
Finish: It wasn’t sticky and gave me a natural, semi-matte finish, on the sheer side. I found it better to apply with a beauty blender or my fingers because since it is so liquidy, using a foundation brush gave me lots of streaks. It was very lightweight, not as much as my Givenchy Teint Couture Foundation, but still very light. It also doesn’t oxidize a lot, maybe half a shade darker.
Longevity: I was really surprised how well this held up. I applied powder and didn’t need to blot my T-zone at all! This foundation lasted me for at least 10h. Note that I always use a primer underneath my foundations, and this is the kind of foundation where you NEED to use a primer and powder, because otherwise it will accentuate dry patches and pores.
- Semi-matte, natural finish
- Good price
- Large range of shades (16!)
- SPF 20
- Not for night clubbing or pictures, because it gives you a white cast due to the SPF 20
- Pa-cka-ging. Nuff said.
- Definitely needs primer and powder, it settles into the pores.
Would I buy it again?
Well, that’s to be continued. I do think that for the price, this foundation is really amazing, especially considering the longevity, but my pores at the moment are really large and any drugstore foundation isn’t ideal for me. Anyhow, if you don’t mind buying highstreet foundations, this one is worth a try.
Left: nothing (only primer) Right: Primer and foundation
Foundation and BROWZZ. My natural brows are so sad, I will make sure my brows are on point before I get buried.
Da fun part.
And yes, I’m well aware that my hair colour is horrid at the moment. It seems like every single time I dye it, it is perfect for 1 week and then it fades off to a orangey brassy creamsicle colour. I’m currently dyeing it again, let’s hope that it ends up better than last time.
