Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation

You can tell the seasons are about to change as our beauty counters are awash with the newest innovations in foundation. This time of the year we should all be moving away from heavy and covering formulas, in favour of lighter and more natural results that help provide a healthy glow. I hate looking like I’m wearing foundation, which means the hunt is always on for the next best thing. For months now I’ve been coveting a combination of Clinique and Benefit foundations, not being able to find anything else available on the high street that can compete with their results and long-lasting qualities – until now. Revlon launched their Nearly Naked foundation and powder a little while ago and I’ve been dying to give it a whirl and see how it performs on my dull and sun-desperate skin. It claims to balance skin and makeup so that they work in harmony, providing a breathable finish that still allows the skin’s natural texture to shine through. Available in 16 different shades, this is definitely a range designed to work with your skintone and provide a result that’s as natural as possible. I’ve been wearing this interchangeably for a few weeks now and I can honestly say it’s become one of my favourites – the formula is light and easy to apply, working with skin well and blending perfectly without any caking or stickiness. It doesn’t sit in pores, rather sitting on top of them subtly to create a natural finish that has literally had people asking what foundation I’m wearing. Lasting all day no matter what I’m doing, it works just as well with fingers as it does with a brush and doesn’t irritate my eyes at all. The closest comparison would have to be Benefit’s Hello Flawless foundation, which is about double the price and performs only marginally better. The glass bottle is slightly annoying and inevitably causes a lot of product to go to waste, but it does give you something sturdy to grip onto. Finishing off with a dusting of the Nearly Naked powder to set the foundation provides a very ‘naked’ result, although I’m pretty sure this powder is a regular Revlon version re-packaged. If you’re after a foundation to take you into spring but aren’t quite ready to go as far as a tinted moisturiser, then this is definitely a product to check out. It’s got the LBQ stamp of approval, and then some…

Available now in store and online in 16 different foundation shades. RRP £8.99.

    I love this. I've nearly used all if my first bottle and I find I'm reaching for this instead of some if my much more expensive foundations. X
