Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation Review.

Revlon has been one of my favourite makeup brands this year: I’ve fallen in love with the colours of their lip butters, the longevity of the Kissable lip stains and now I have discovered my love for their foundations. 

I have read many reviews on the Nearly Naked foundation and a couple of weeks ago I recommended it to my friend who likes her makeup very natural. As Revlon had a 3 for 2 offer in Superdrug that day, I bought one myself just out of curiosity (along with two of the lip butters!). The next day my friend came back saying she loved the foundation – which for me meant that I probably wouldn’t as I prefer a heavier coverage. I’m really self-conscious about my skin as I used to suffer with really bad acne throughout my teenage years, and I think I genuinely have developed a type of body dysmorphia – when I look in the mirror and I have no makeup on, I think I still have acne. It’s horrible because my friends always compliment me on how good my skin looks, but I can never leave the house of even see people without putting on foundation and concealer (if anyone would want to see a post on this subject, I’m doing some research on it so please leave me a comment and I’ll get on the case). 

I wasn’t looking forward to testing this foundation as I thought the coverage would be too light for me and it wouldn’t cover up my skin like I’d want it to, but boy oh boy did my mind change! It’s true, this foundation is very light on the skin but it efficiently covers all spots and blemishes, evens out the skin tone and I even feel like my skin glows more with Revlon’s Nearly Naked than with most foundations that claim to have the “glow factor”. I use my Beauty Blender dupe from H&M (I’ll post about it soon, it’s so great and an amazing bargain!) to spread the foundation evenly over my face, and then conceal some extra spots and voila!

I’m so happy with this foundation; it’s like the best thing to happen to faces this summer. And the colour matches my skin tone perfectly, which is so rare to find. So I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes their makeup natural and light, and even if you prefer a heavier foundation –give this one a go as you might be pleasantly surprised, just like I was.



  1. I really do love Revlon too - I might try this foundation when mine runs out! xxx

  5. This sounds so great, I've been resisting it for ages because I've already got too many foundations in my collection (I did a post on this a while ago) but I finally gave in a few weeks ago, I'll be breaking it out tomorrow after reading this!! :)
