I must admit, I probably sound insanely makeup-dependent when I say out loud that I do my complete foundation routine no matter how minimal my errands for the day are. It’s not as bad as you think. I used to rely on BB Creams for my “everyday errand makeup” but that was before I discovered Revlon Nearly Naked Liquid Foundation – it’s just as light but with better and more flawless finish. It’s very, very, very selfie-friendly as it looks incredible on photos. πŸ™‚

Revlon’s breakthrough nearly naked makeup balances skin and makeup so they work in perfect harmony. With buildable coverage and seamless blending, you are sure to cover flaws and perfect your skin’s tone and texture. No heavy cakey or greasy mess.
Like Revlon’s best-selling foundation which happens to be the ColorStay range, Nearly Naked comes in almost the same wide-mouthed sturdy glass bottle. The only difference is that this one is square as opposed to the regular round bottle of the former. Time and again, I say that I prefer bottles that come with pumps more than this kind of packaging simply because it’s easier to control the amount of product to dispense. Anyway, the two don’t only share the similar packaging but also the scent – if you could remember, I was annoyed by the smell of the ColorStay foundation. Good thing Nearly Naked’s scent is tad milder making it more tolerable.
Unlike the former, Revlon Nearly Naked Liquid Foundation is light on the skin. It offers sheer to medium coverage without the heavy, cakey feeling. The coverage is rather easy to build – for this I suggest using a sponge instead of brush to avoid streaks. Although personally I’d much rather get s different foundation if coverage is what I’m after. Nearly Naked, as the name suggest, is ideal for the flawless, barely-there look.
Although not all available in our country (yet), Revlon Nearly Naked Liquid Foundation comes in 16 different shades. I have here the two closest shades to my skin tone: 180 Medium Beige (yellow) and 200 Warm Beige (pink undertone). Asians commonly have yellow undertone and true enough, 180 Medium Beige turned out to be a better match for my morena skin. However, due to slight oxidizing, it turns a bit darker than I want it to be after a couple of hours so what I do is just to retouch my powder foundation to bring back the correct shade. I wish Revlon would bring more foundation shades in the Philippines to cater to the diverse skin tones we have.

I just love the natural finish. It evens out the skin color and conceals minor flaws without making me look too made up for everyday life. Mind you, I didn’t use any concealer for the photos above. For a foundation, it doesn’t look flat and boring. My skin has that fresh glow sans any kind of illuminators or highlighters. The finish looks gorgeous both in real life and in stills. Mapapa-selfie ka talaga, swear! πŸ™‚ I can’t tell you how much I’ve been living off this foundation for months without sounding like a commercial ad. Just take my word for it; for fresh, natural looks.. this is your guy!

It has little to no oil control power but it doesn’t promise anything about it so I really can’t hold that against Revlon. It has great staying power on its own but when mixed with the intense heat and excessive production of oil on the face, blotting paper is your friend. Use it before retouching your powder. πŸ™‚ There’s room for improvement in this department but for someone who doesn’t sweat as much and isn’t very oily (raises hands), this is just perfect for everyday errands. Buh-bye BB Creams.. for now at least. πŸ™‚
