Today for this post I have come up with
Revlon Nearly Naked Makeup Review,Swatch,Demo,Photos
This post is so beyond overdue. I bought this Foundation from Nykaa much before I got Maybelline Fit Me Foundation. The claim in the name itself “Nearly Naked” managed to entice me as I was looking for a base product that gives decent coverage on my blemished skin with almost an illusion of “flawless skin kind” of finish.

Price: 750 INR for 30 ml
Revlon introduces New Revlon Nearly Naked Makeup, a revolutionary foundation that is so refreshingly light it melts right into your skin, harmonizing skin and makeup to restore your natural glow and provide an even, fresh complexion.
Get Noticed for your beautiful skin, not just makeup.
Key Features:Lightweight foundation that balances skin and makeup to work in harmony for an even, fresh complexion.Contains green tea, black tea, oatmeal and jojoba to help maintain skin tone and texture.Lightweight, undetectable, breathable coverage that builds from light to medium .Broad Spectrum SPF 20.
New Revlon Nearly Naked Makeup/Foundation is packaged in rectangular glass bottle secured with white twist out lid. Foundation bottle comes without any pump.Most of drugstore brands are coming up with this kind of retro foundation packaging these days to reduce the cost of product. But I tend to end up with shedload of product on my hands every single time I pour out the product. I still prefer pump in my foundation bottle.
Nearly Naked Foundation is launched in just three shades in India namely 130 Shell, 160 Fresh Beige and 190 True Beige. I have bought shade 190 True Beige for my NC 41 skin tone. This shade appears darker on swatch but looks just right on my face. Ideally my perfect shade would have been somewhere in between Fresh beige and True Beige but in scarcity of the shades available for Indian consumer I settled down for True beige. Fresh Beige looks slightly ashy on my skin complexion. True beige does not have any prominent golden/orange undertones as such and looks nice on my skin tone.
Revlon Nearly Naked Makeup has beautiful light-weight texture that wears featherlight on my skin. It has mild undistinguished fragrance which is non bothersome. It spreads easily on my non-primed skin/moisturized only skin surface. I have been using this foundation since past few months. In cold months of Feb March – adequately moisturized skin served ideal pre-foundation base. Now when it is hot and humid now, I sometimes apply this without even moisturizing my face. It spreads evenly and blends seamlessly setting up uniform base for my makeup.
Nearly Naked Foundation gives sheer to medium coverage but the texture is build able for more coverage. Digging deeper, overall finish is somewhere between tinted moisturizer/bb cream and regular foundation. It applies more uniform and less dewy than a tinted moisturizer/bb cream but definitely sheerer for a foundation.
I apply it with my favorite Real techniques Buffing Brush/TBS Foundation Brush and then powder my face MAC Mineralize Skin finish without any primer underneath.Smooth cream texture facilitates application with just my fingers also. It gives semi matte finish on my skin imparting healthy “lit from within” healthy skin kind glow. Foundation has no shimmer and it wears like my own “polished/refined” skin when layered once.Formula does not melt or flows down with minor sweating when powdered aptly. It lives on me flawless for 6- 7 hours, after that it starts fading but does so uniformly.It does not look patchy or non uniform even towards the end of the day. Revlon Nearly Naked Makeup comes with Broad spectrum Sun protection and SPF 20. This is a score point for this foundation as broad spectrum sun protection in makeup is quite interesting in tropical country like India.
In demo picture above visibly it has cancelled out all kind of redness and has managed to give smooth uniform,less flawed skin surface. True Beige looks slightly darker on me ( More in pictures than in real) . Because of limited shade range, I will highly suggest you testing foundation on your jawline for matching right shade. (You can enlarge the picture above to see the difference this product has made on my skin)
VANILLA RATINGS 8.5/10
Revlon Nearly Naked Makeup is a budget buy foundation that gives lightweight breathable ‘Skin Like” coverage.It doesn’t cake up even when layered for more coverage. I have been using it almost every single day in month of July. It’s lot humid these days . I tend to sweat moment I step out of my air conditioned room. Revlon Nearly Naked Makeup survived such mini tours in house , garden and kitchen without creasing especially in my laugh lines.It lasts whole day on me (8+ hours) with some fading but never goes patchy.
Packaging can be improvised further and I just wish bottle to be outfitted with pump. Shade range launched in India is not exciting either.Only three shades are available in India which seems meagre compare to 16 shades launched in US .Along with liquid foundation Revlon also launched “Nearly Naked” pressed powders in three shades-Light,Medium and Medium Deep.I quite liked way Maybelline has synchronized naming Foundations/Pressed Powders in Fit Me!! range. I wish that Revlon should have done something similar for “Nearly naked” range as well.
Texture and Finish wise, it definitely offers ” Nearly Naked” polished skin-like appearance .This foundation will suit all skin types but Normal- dry skin people will love it more.Light coverage “Natural skin like” Finish brigade will love this foundation.
