Today I will be doing a first impression review of Revlon’s new Nearly Naked Foundation.
So this is how a first impression works: I’ll show you a picture of myself with prepped skin, moisturizer, eye cream and primer, which I use on a daily basis. Then I’ll show a picture of the foundation on and describe the texture, fragrance, feel, coverage level, etc. Lastly, I’ll do a final review at the end of the day, along with a picture, to show the longevity of the product and how it wears through the day. So, here we go!
The NEW foundation from Revlon runs about $10.00 at most drugstore locations. The color range has 16 shades to choose from which is great for a drugstore foundation. Revlon claims this foundation will balance the skin with buildable coverage of flaws, perfect the skin’s tone and texture, and does not leave a heavy or cakey/greasy mess.
First, here is my NO MAKEUP self – darkest dark circles you’ll ever see and all – but you know what, I just do not care! This is for YOU guys!
The next photo is with JUST the foundation and last is of my full-face makeup.
As of now, I’m LOVING this foundation. It feels super light on the skin and I think I did good on the color selection which is ALWAYS hard buying from the drugstore. It does have a slight scent to it but that doesn’t last long whatsoever. I think it looks really natural and this definitely allows my skin to show through while still giving good coverage.
I put the foundation on at 11:24 and I’m going to give the foundation 8 hours to sit on my skin before reviewing again to see how well it lasts through the day. I will update with my final thoughts and grade around 7 tonight!
Here is a picture of the makeup 8 hours after first application. I think it lasted great, coverage-wise, throughout the day. As you can tell from this picture my forehead and nose are GLOWING so I recommend if you have combination/oily skin to add a setting powder on any areas that get oily through the day or purchase the pressed powder that accompanies this foundation. I didn’t apply any setting powder in order to see how the foundation truly wore through the day.
Overall, I am super pleased with the Nearly Naked Foundation and I would give it a A-.
