I picked up the new Revlon Nearly Naked foundation and powder a little over a month ago. Many say it is a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked Skin foundation. I have never tried that foundation so I cannot say whether that is true or not.
In case you do don’t know the products look like this:
Sorry the compact is a little dirty…but I actually use these products. :)
I picked up the foundation in 130 Shell. This shade is a pretty good match for me but is a tad yellow for my skin tone. I would say I have a neutral undertone which can sometimes be a challenge to match in the drugstore as many brands don’t have neutral shades and just cool or warm.
I would say the foundation is light coverage that is buildable to medium coverage. I would recommend it for dry to normal/combination skin types. As I have mentioned before I have oily skin. This foundation works for me but for only a couple hours on its own. After that I become an oil slick. In anticipation of writing this post I wore it alone (with primer) to work today. It looked great until lunch time and then it started to fade. By the time I got home my face was an oil slick. I could have combated this with some blotting sheets and powder but I like to keep things low maintenance at work with little touchups throughout the day.
How I normally use this foundation is mixed with my Revlon Colorstay liquid foundation. My shade of Colorstay Buff has a grayish cast to it so mixing in the Nearly Naked makes it a much better color match. The addition of the Colorstay to the mix makes the coverage and lasting power better all around.
I grabbed the powder in the lightest shade Fair. I am not sure if you can tell in the picture but these powders seem to run on the dark side in the pan. Once I applied it the color match was spot on. This powder has a very silky creamy texture and is super lightweight. This has quickly become a favorite powder. I can use it to set my undereye concealer and it does not settle into my fine lines or look cakey. I love it! It provides a lot more coverage than you would expect from a “naked” product. I highly recommend the powder to all skin types even oily gals like me.
