As a fan of natural cosmetics, I was excited to try Revlon's new Nearly Naked Mineral Powder Foundation. Revlon promises a fresh, flawless complexion with a product that contains, vitamins and minerals with no parabens, talc or fragrance. But wait, there's more, you get a gorgeous free powder brush. What's not to love? Well....
|Revlon Nearly Naked Mineral Powder Foundation in 020 Light|
Nearly Naked Mineral Powder Foundation comes in 5 shades, Fair, Light, Medium, Medium Deep and Deep. I chose 020 light, as it seemed the best match for me. If anything it is a little dark for my fairly light skin tone, in the Summer time, however the Fair shade was definitely too light.
I'd like to say this has the lightness of powder with the coverage of foundation, but if the truth be told, it's the lightness of powder with the coverage of.... powder. As much as I love the powder brush for it's quality and visual beauty, it is just that, a powder brush. If you want the coverage of even a light foundation, you'll be there all day trying to apply it with this brush. I've tried a more densely bristled kabuki brush with better results, however the coverage is still ultra light. It doesn't sufficiently cover any of my imperfections. Revlon promises "undetectable coverage", I couldn't agree more!
I'm surprised Revlon claims that this foundation is SPF 15 because it's hard to believe this amount of coverage gives any sun protection at all.
Shine n Lines
No significant shine reduction, or softening of wrinkles here. Pores are if anything are more visible, until the foundation settles into your skin, maybe half an hour after application.
We'll not entirely. Applied with the powder brush, I'm really enjoying Nearly Naked Mineral Powder Foundation as a setting powder, over my favourite (actual) foundation. I do feel cheated though. I didn't really need another powder, but hey, I'm not gonna lie, I didn't need another foundation either : )
Have a beautiful day!
