Hi everyone! I hope every one had a lovely weekend! I spent Saturday morning trying to get Beyonce tickets but failed AGAIN! Did any of you get them? Then i went and did a little bit of shopping and saw that they new Revlon nearly naked foundation was in boots and thought i would try it out. I highly rate Revlon as a brand, they are my top high street ( or drugstore) brand and my favourite foundation is Revlon colour stay. Some of the foundations Revlon has bought out in m opinion never live up to the colour stay so i was interested to try this foundation.
First thing when i went to boots they only had 5 colours in and i thought that was shocking, but i did look on line and there are alot more colours available. I picked up the colour shell which looks a little dark for my skin but i have started to apply a bit of the old dove tinted moisturiser in prep for spring summer. The packaging is.... simple just like the colour stay foundation its a glass bottle, no pump and has a white lid rather than the black lid Revlon colour stay has. I don't love the package but i don't hate it.
I applied the foundation for the first time on Sunday at 11:03am. Due to the lack of pump which i think this foundation really needs i have to pour it out on my had and be aware it is very "liquidy", as soon as it came out it went running down my hand and i was quickly trying to put it back in the bottle, Nightmare! I applied my colour stay concealer first to my red areas and spots as this is a very light foundation it wont cover any scaring or redness.
I'm a love of a full coverage foundation. i have redness around my nose, dry patches and achne scaring so i didn't think i would like a, light-medium coverage. I applied it to my skin with my real techniques buffing brush and i was so impressed with it. Honestly it smoothed out my complexion without looking cakey and made my skin look so healthy and had a nice glow. I do like a little bit of a glow but for me it was a little too dewy so i just set it with a powder and my skin looks healthy and flawless.
I would compare this to the Rimmel wake me up foundation, but better!! I like the Rimmel wake me up but i think this makes the skin look more fresh! I have to say its very "wet" and it takes a long time to set. It looks very dewy but defiantly needs to be set with a powder. The nearly naked foundation lasted about 5 hours on my skin before i notice it settled into the dry patches around my nose and forehead, which is a downside but i just rubbed it in a little bit and it was OK but probably not great if you have alot of dryness on the skin.
Overall I'm impressed with this foundation and dare i say it i prefer it to colour stay because it looks so nice on the skin but i like the staying power of colour stay. If you have great skin this would be perfect for you and if not, as long as you have a good concealer it will work fine.
Have you tried this yet?
