Review: Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation

I have been a fan of Revlon foundations for many years now!! When I was younger I tried various foundations from Covergirl and Maybelline which I absolutely hated. Maybelline foundations make me break out horribly and I could never find a good colour match in Covergirl since all of their foundations leaned a bit more on the pinky side. I remember I used to use the Revlon foundation which you could turn to mix different shades together which I loved for years since I didn't have to worry about matching my colour. After I got more into makeup I tried both the Revlon Colourstay and Revlon Photoready foundations which are both awesome in my opinion. I have used Revlon Photoready for a long time I think I am on my fourth bottle now so when Revlon came out with the Nearly Naked Foundation I was really excited to try it. I didn't buy it immediately since I had just bought a new bottle of Photoready foundation (of course that would happen right) but a couple of weeks ago I was in Shoppers Drugmart and they had both the foundation and pressed powder together as a deal for about fifteen dollars. I had been hunting for a new powder after I realized the one I had been using for about five months was causing a lot of my breakouts and clogged pores, I am definitely planning on doing a massive powder review post on all of the ones I have. So I couldn't resist getting the deal and I am doing the review on the foundation first before the powder since I have used it more.

I really love this foundation it has great coverage which is always something I need since I have a bunch of redness from old acne marks. I would say it is about medium coverage, it definitely offers as much as the Photoready foundation which is one of the things I loved about it but not as much as Colourstay. I don't find the consistency to be really watery although I read alot of reviews before I bought it from people saying that they did, I actually think it is a bit thicker than Revlon Photoready and it doesn't run down my hand before I get a chance to apply. To put it on I just use one of my Elf flat top powder brushes which are awesome for applying on foundation. So far it hasn't broke me out and I have used it for over a couples weeks now which is good sign!! Overall I would definitely recommend it since it is one of the best bargains in the drugstore for foundation at only $10 and offers pretty damn good coverage, it just makes my skin look awesome. The colour selection is very warm/yellow toned which is the only draw back if you are more on the cool toned side. If anyone else has used it tell me what you thought and I hope you all have a great week!!
