Revlon Nearly Naked, worth the hype?


I have far too many foundations. Seriously, I have a box full. Foundations, in liquid and powder form, BB creams, tinted moisturisers, it's like a never ending box of bases that I try and get through with an end never in sight. So why oh why did I decide to buy not one, but two, Revlon Nearly Naked Foundations when they came out? Because everyone was going on and on and on about them of course...

It's true though. I said I wasn't going to buy any more foundations until I had used a few up but I got completely drawn in by the rave reviews this foundation was getting. And as Revlon was on buy one get one half price at the time, I figured, before even trying it and seeing if it was good, to pick up two!

So is this foundation really as good as everyone is saying? In a word, yes. I've been applying this most days, even over my favourite Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation. At first I was a little bit miffed about the fact it doesn't have a pump, but it doesn't pour out too quickly (if you pour it at the right angle) so it doesn't bother me at all now. It also has a built in SPF20 so it's great for wearing out. Applied with my trusted beauty blender dupe, this foundation looks and feels amazing. It leaves my skin looking flawless and masks any imperfections so, so easily. From the first time I used this foundation I have been impressed - it really does make my skin look perfect. I am so happy with this foundation and the fact I reach for it more than my other, much loved and long raved about foundations, really says something! It's long lasting, even with my oily skin, applies easily and evenly, it's super easy to blend and looks natural, leaving a healthy, flawless finish. I am a big fan!

Have you tried the new Revlon Nearly Naked foundation? You can find it on the Boots website here and a 30ml bottle costs £8.99. There are ten shades in the range!

  1. I really love this foundation. I find it quite comparable to my NARS Sheer Glow Foundation. Somedays I even blend the two together because I bought this a tad too dark and my NARS is just a tad too light.

  8. I'd like to try this, but I don't like to have more than one foundation on the go at once - I might try either this or Bourjois Healthy Mix next, it's a tough decision!

    1. I would say it's light-medium coverage, but very easy to build up and easily lasts all day :) xo

  11. I bought this recently too, and really like it. I think it's a really nice standard foundation - not too dewy, not too cakey, just nice and in-between!

    1. It's a bit on the higher end of high-street foundations I think, but it's certainly worth it :) xo

  13. The only thing putting me off this product is the lack of pump - I can see many a mishap due to my clumsiness! Xo

    1. Just be super careful with it! :) I've not spilt any of it and always clean the top after use xo

  14. Oh good to hear you like it, it's one I definitely want to pick up soon. Also very tempted by a beauty blender!

    1. I cannot recommend picking up a beauty blender enough. Nothing makes my foundation look as good! xo

  15. I need to start trying more foundations. I don't normally wear any because of how pale I am and I don't want to look orange but hopefully this will come in a light enough shade :)

  17. I've tried the Nearly Naked foundation too and I really enjoy it! The only downside (no fault of the products) is that I picked up a shade that's far too light, I definitely need to repurchase a darker one.

    Lovely review!

    1. Oh well I hope you manage to pick up the right shade soon! :) I will need to pick up a darker shade for the warmer months I think! xo

  18. Apparently, 10 shades is not enough since I can't seem to find THE perfect one for my skintone x

    1. Ohh no! How about getting two like I did? You could mix a light and a darker shade to get the right shade for you? xo
