So, this week I have been slacking on working out, so I don't have any news there. But what I do have for you, is a makeup review!
I had heard a few good things about Revlon's new Nearly Naked foundation and powder from other bloggers (Nouveau Cheap and Lynette). So I decided to give it a try!
I've only worn the foundation once so far, as I haven't really been out and in need of much coverage. The consistency and coverage are both definitely on the lighter side. It is a nice neutral base color, which I think leans more yellow than pink. I really like that as most other foundations end up looking too redish-orange on me. I purchased the color 130 Shell, which is the third lightest shade.
The staying power was nice, but around 6 hours after applying, I needed to powder again. I do have to admit, I am a tad oily, so 6 hours is a pretty good amount of time for me stay fairly matte.
The right is the full unblended swatch, to the right is a lightly blended strip of the foundation.
The powder I purchased in the shade 020 Light Pale. I think this was the second lightest option. I really like the powder so far. It is not cakey, and is almost not "powdery", although that makes no sense as it is a powder? It applies well and doesn't look like you have an overly powdery face.
I tried to swatch it, but it's basically invisible on my skin.
Overall, I am enjoying these products so far. My only problem was a small dry patch on my face that the foundation didn't quite sit right on. But, that's my fault for not using a moisturizer.
Have you tried the new Nearly Naked line? Let me know, what are your favorite drugstore products?
