Review: Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation


I want to share with you my thoughts on my new found favorite drugstore foundation! I purchased this back in my Labor Day holiday haul which you can check out here!
I purchased this foundation in Nude #150 which is a great yellow based shade.

"Revlon’s breakthrough nearly naked makeup balances skin and makeup so they work in perfect harmony. With buildable coverage and seamless blending, you are sure to cover flaws and perfect your skin’s tone and texture. No heavy cakey or greasy mess."

  • I'm not thrilled with the bottle and cap... I prefer a pump but because I love this foundation so much I don't mind the packaging. I just make sure to be very very careful when I'm pouring out product onto my hand. I pour out a little at a time for each section of my face. 
  • You get 30 fl. oz./ 30 ml.
Texture & Consistency:
  • This liquid foundation is a TAD bit runny but since I only pour out a little bit of product at a time, I don't have any issues with that.

  • I use my e.l.f. Studio Powder Brush to apply my liquid foundations! I discovered that this brush is awesome to use to apply liquid foundations from a YouTube beauty guru. I've been doing this for the longest time now and I love it! The brush is so full and dense, what I love so much about this brush is that it does not waste any product. The product stays right on the flat top of the brush and because it's so dense, product does not get into the brush!
  • This foundation goes on nicely and feels like I'm not wearing anything at all! (hence its name Nearly Naked hehe)
  • I feel that this is a cross between a tinted moisturizer and a foundation - Revlon Nearly Naked provides more coverage than a BB cream or tinted moisturizer but much less coverage than a full coverage foundation. So it's right in the middle which is perfect for me! I have uneven skin tone and a few minor flaws on my face, so I appreciate that this foundation provides the right coverage for me!
  • The finish is really nice and natural - to me it does mimic the look and feel of real skin. 
  • Revlon Nearly Naked covers up some pinkness I have on my face as well as pores and the uneven skin tone but still let my skin show through.
  • Revlon states that this foundation is buildable but I don't think that it's not that much because it is made for light coverage. I'm scared that if I were to try to build up using this foundation, it would be cakey!
  • I use my Rimmel London Fix & Perfect Pro Primer to prime my face before putting this foundation on. Unfortunately I can't say how this foundation lasts on its own but with the help of my primer, this foundation stayed on all day (I've worn it for a few weeks now, been out in the hot and humid weather, sweat, and it still lasted on me!).
  • With the Texas heat, of course I had to blot but sparingly =)
  • My skin wasn't oily/shiny nor dry/flaky, I had no issues with this foundation!
Is it worth it?
  • Heck yes I think so! This foundation has kicked all of my other foundations to the curb! =X I love the coverage, the feel, I love everything about this foundation! 
  • A bonus is that this has SPF 20 so I can skip my usual CoTZ facial sunscreen when I wear this which is awesome because there are days I'm lazy and don't want to do all of that hehe.
  • I bought this for $7.48 (U.S.D. before tax) at Walmart. 
There are 16 shades available to choose from and a coordinating pressed powder you can buy too for the same price! 


If you are in search for a light coverage foundation, I highly recommend Revlon's Nearly Naked! If you already have it, what are your thoughts about it?
