A good foundation can really transform the way your skin looks. That’s why it’s so important to choose the best formula for your skin type! My skin is more on the dry side with very little discoloration and blemishes so I prefer a lightweight yet hydrating formula. I’ve tried a few different foundations but I always end up coming back to my beloved Revlon Nearly Naked. It’s the bomb!
Nearly Naked comes in a long, rectangular glass tube with silver accents and a white plastic top. It like how it looks a little fancier than most drugstore foundations but I wish the packaging was more convenient. Nearly Naked doesn’t feature a pump so things can get a little messy and wasteful. I’d be so over the moon if Revlon decided to add a pump!
Nearly Naked comes in 16 shades ranging from fair to dark. The range is pretty extensive for a drugstore line but I wish there were a few more brown girl friendly shades. if you’re on the deeper end of the spectrum you’ll feel a little left out, sadly. Cappuccino is the darkest shade in the range and turned out to be the perfect match for my skin tone! It’s a warm, deep brown with a strong red undertone and natural, dewy skin-like finish.
The formula is very lightweight and creamy with the perfect consistency. It’s not too watery and not too thick. Just right! The formula is slightly hydrating so it works really well with my dry skin. However, it may be a little too emollient for oily skin. The coverage is more on the light side but it’s buildable without looking cakey. Cappuccino applies and blends like a dream without streaks or patchiness. I’ve applied Nearly Naked with my Beauty Blender and several foundation brushes without any issues. It wears quite nicely for over 8 hours without any creasing, pooling or melting. I wore it yesterday in the sweltering heat without any setting powder and surprisingly my face was still in tact when I got home! Cappuccino does transfer a little bit though so you’ll want to be careful with collars and what not.
I really think Revlon has a winner here! The Nearly Naked foundation is creamy, hydrating and gives me a flawless finish. It holds up quite well throughout the day and the color is a perfect match. If you’re struggling to find an affordable foundation for your dry skin I recommend giving Nearly Naked a go!
