revlon nearly naked

last year the only foundations i bought were from revlon, for me 2012 was the year they got it right for my skin tone and how it sits. first i bought the revlon photo ready airbrush foundation, a mousse foundation that provided a lovely light coverage. then like many others i was obsessed with the revlon colorstay 24 hour foundation, this was my favourite foundation ever. it lasted forever, provided great coverage whilst still looking natural.

enter the new revlon nearly naked range. well with my previous success i just had to give these ago and  luckily for me i was over the moon with the results. i have the nearly naked foundation in the shade vanilla and the powder version, due to my oily skin, in the shade fair. lets start with the foundation...you cant help but notice similarities between other high end foundations and this. the name is so similar to the new urban decay foundation while the consistency is quite watery like the chanel vitalumiere aqua. compared to other bases i've tried this is very thin but that is the main thing i love about it as it feels like you are actually wearing nothing on your skin, while a quick glance in the mirror will still reveal all your imperfections covered. despite being light its staying power is great especially when combined with the powder. 

i cant help but love the powder either. this onto top of the foundation gets rids of any trace of oil on my face, which for me is great as my oily skin tends to be a pain. this isn't a transparent powder so a light hand is needed as each application does apply more colour but i love the result after a light dusting. especially with spring and summer fast approaching i am so glad i got my hands on both other these, even though i did go routing for them in a stock box at walmarts as they had been taken down off the display. they provide natural looking coverage that hides any imperfections with out feeling like you have a second face on top of your own :D
