Revlon Nearly Naked and some pretty dodgy lipstick application..



Can I start off by saying, lord knows what happened with my lipstick, I obviously did it with my eyes closed because I've completely missed out half of my upper lip. Anyway, now I've got that out...

I've been using the Revlon Nearly Naked foundation for probably around a month now, as you can see from the wear and tear of the bottle, and I'm really falling in love with it! It creates a smooth base and covers up most redness I have, be it a blemish or red marks on my cheeks. I was SO surprised by this as all reviews I've read advertise it as a light foundation. I find the foundation really brightens my complexion as well, I just feel my skin has more of a glow.

The formula is gorgeous, it has a gel like consistency and really reminds me of the YSL Touche Eclait foundation by the way it feels and applies. I do find it very easy to use too much of this, not only because of the bottle, but I always seem to think I need more than I actually do, but when I use more it applies horribly and just doesn't blend. It is quite buildable though, if I feel I need a little more coverage, I'll dip the end of an eye brush into the lid and pick up a tiny bit of the product and just apply and blend where I need it.

It lasts well! After about 6 hours I feel the need to top up, but only slightly and in certain areas such as my nose and where any redness occurs. As everyone has pointed out, the pumpless bottle is a downside, but it's nothing I can't cope with! I use shade 120 Vanilla and I find this is a surprisingly good match for my skin, I think there's one shade lighter, but I think it's more the tone of that one that is different, but don't quote me on that! It was a long time ago I got this.

Have you used this foundation? How did you get on with it? :)

  2. I've heard so much about this and really want to give it a go, as I've heard it's quite like Nars Sheer glow? I don't think you're lipsticks dodgy!

  7. Oh it looks amazing on your skin! I'm dying to try it, but the lightest shade available in Ireland seems to be Shell, which would be far too dark for me!
