Damn, girls, why didn’t anyone tell me about Revlon Nearly Naked foundation, €13.99? It’s pale, comfortable over dry skin and has a beautifully natural finish – all the facets that a product needs to earn a place in my day-to-day makeup bag.
Really runny in texture, a little goes a long way. It blends without much effort and leaves skin looking uniform, brightened and, most importantly, just like really good skin. The finish is subtly dewy, creating a base that seems barely there but actually packs decent medium coverage.
As this feels so nice over dry areas, I expected off-the-Donegal-coast style waves of excess oil to come through by lunch. Not a bit of it! I use a sheet of blotting paper and am good to go – nothing as disastrous as expected. Altogether, a grand lad for the combination-skin types among us.
The bottle is pump-free, meaning my hands usually end up makeup-covered. It’s a bugbear for me, and I have to take points away because of it. Ain’t nobody got time for shaking, pouring and spilling – not when the new season of SVU is in session. Side: Stabler is coming back, I can feel it in my waters.
With broad spectrum SPF protection, hydrating power and oil control, this is right on the mark for a trans-seasonal base.
