I purchased my bottle of Nearly Naked in the shade 160 Fresh Beige, for around $10 with tax when it was on sale.
I actually didn't expect to like this foundation as much as I do. It's my new favorite and I think it might just be my all time favorite, as well! Here's some of what Revlon has to say about it:
"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."
I would say that all of their claims are correct! The coverage is light to medium, as you can build it up a bit if you wish. I find I'm good with just one pretty light layer, though! What I love about this foundation is that it looks natural, like your skin is well, nearly naked! Your skin is able to peek through and it really does look like you're not wearing anything. The only one that has to know you're wearing foundation is you!
It feels weightless on the skin and I can't even tell I'm wearing anything. It's most definitely not heavy, cakey, or greasy! Also, the shade I chose is a really nice match for me at the moment! It comes in 16 shades so hopefully you'll be able to find a suitable one for yourself.
It does a lovely job of simply evening out your skin tone and covering up any redness, all while still looking natural. (I had some before and after photos I took to show you how well it does so, but I look super derpy in them so I decided to leave them out, haha. So just trust me!) The way I like to apply this is by just dotting some on my face and using my Avon Precision Grip Teardrop Blender to blend it in, and just like the claims say, it is really easy to blend! The finish of this foundation is also (you guessed it) very natural. It doesn't look completely matte nor too dewy. In a few reviews I saw some people say that Nearly Naked takes a few minutes to set, feels tacky after application, and that you need to set it with powder but I didn't experience any of that at all! It set wonderfully for me and wasn't at all tacky. I also had no need to set it with powder, though I did apply some to my T-zone where I was a bit more oily. I just like to set this foundation with my Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray, which I always use.
So, it sounds pretty awesome right? But what about the wear time? Well let me tell you this! Nearly Naked is absolutely fabulous and wears throughout the whole day for me! It looks just as it did when I first applied it even hours after! It's just awesome. I love this foundation. It does everything I want a foundation to do: it doesn't feel heavy at all, looks natural while still evening out my complexion, doesn't transfer, wears all day, and is easy to apply.
My only con is the packaging. It comes in a rectangular glass bottle that I neither love nor hate the look of. What I hate is that it doesn't come with a pump. Why, why, why?? The formula of this foundation is definitely more on the liquid side and it's pretty runny so it's quite hard to try and control how much comes out of the opening. The first time I used it the product came rushing out and I ended up with waaay more then I needed! While this aggravates me it won't stop me from using the actual product because I love it too much.

PS. I'm wearing Nearly Naked in this FOTD! Another pro: I feel I'm able to skip concealer with it!
