Here comes the second part of the back-to-back Revlon Nearly Naked review. After the liquid foundation, of course we have the Revlon Nearly Naked Powder Foundation to complete my current face routine. You read it right, no more concealers for this girl. 😉 I’ve been itching to write about this Revlon duo basically because I want to give credit where it is due. I love it so much that I used it on one of the special days in my life. No, I’m not talking about weddings! I’m talking about my graduation last week, silly. Thank you Revlon for the “hulas”-free graduation makeup. HAHA! 😀

Undetectable coverage. Unbelievable complexion. Makeup so refreshingly light it melts right in, creating a fresh, even look. Pressed powder blends seamlessly with a lightweight feel.
If I’m not mistaken, this is my very first Revlon powder foundation and like its liquid foundation counterpart, it did not disappoint me. Revlon Nearly Naked Powder Foundation is housed in a durable white plastic compact with a small sponge and an even smaller mirror on the lid. The sponge is pretty sturdy as it doesn’t tear into tiny pieces when used but like I said, it’s too small so it takes forever to cover the face. Personally, I prefer using a dense powder brush when applying this to create a more natural looking finish. The mirror is way too small, too. I would rather have a larger mirror by losing the transparent part of the lid. But those are just minor rants about the packaging; nothing major. Also, this doesn’t affect the performance of the powder itself so it’s all good. 🙂
Like the liquid foundation, Revlon Nearly Naked Powder Foundation also comes in 16 different shades. I have here 2 shades closest to my skin tone: 30 Medium and 40 Medium Deep. Upon swatching, Medium Deep appears to match my skin tone but because I’m acidic, I think, 30 Medium blends in far better.. a few minutes after application, that is. Also, it is slightly fairer than me, obviously, so it kinda sets off the darkening of the liquid foundation when it starts to oxidize. It has a tendency to accentuate fine lines when not applied properly. With this I suggest avoiding too much powder in the areas where you notice the creasing. Also, always have a good powder brush ready to blur the creasing.
If there’s one thing I truly love about Revlon Nearly Naked Powder Foundation.. it’s its beautifully natural finish. It’s light and sheer but at the same time, it offers just the right amount of coverage I need given my minor blemishes on the cheek area. It makes my skin look flawless without completely covering my skin. I mean, you can still see my skin peak through and not just layers upon layers of makeup just to get that finish.

The staying power of this is incredible with or without primer. Even with the intense summer heat, I only need to retouch ONCE all throughout the day and that actually says a lot about Revlon Nearly Naked Powder Foundation’s longevity. Oil control-wise, I think Revlon Nearly Naked Powder Foundation would be better suited to those with normal to dry skin as it cannot prevent shine and oiliness. Those with oily skin can still use this but with more precautions like a heavy duty primer and a good setting powder like Ben Nye Neutral Face Powder (Read review HERE). Other than that, this is a pretty awesome powder to have for everyday and even special occasions like, say, graduation? *wink! As of typing, I already hit pan on my 30 Medium compact and I’m thinking of repurchasing real soon. 🙂
