Today, I am going to review the compact that I’m currently using. Its the “Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder.”
What Revlon Says about Nearly Pressed Powder:
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. Non cakey. Available in 6 shades.
$9.99 . You might find it for little less price in local stores.
My Experience with Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder:
Pressed powder is my must-have makeup product. That is all I use as a base product on a daily basis along with some concealer. I always like to experiment with new products. When I saw the new Revlon Nearly Naked makeup line, I picked up this pressed powder.
It comes in a long white case with a small mirror and a smaller sponge applicator. The packaging looks kind of neat, but they could have cut down the size a bit. Still you can carry it in your purse for touch-ups.
The sponge is very small and its hard to hold it and apply. I need to go over multiple times to cover my face. It is okay for touch-ups but not for initial application. I use a different sponge if I use only powder and a powder brush if I use it to set my foundation.
I am somewhere around NC 42 and I have picked this in the shade – “Medium.” I prefer my powder to be a little lighter than my skin tone and this shade suits me well. The coverage is sheer to light.
When I apply just the powder on my moisturized skin (with a bigger sponge), it reduces the shine and kind of gives a natural and fresh finish. When I say natural, I mean that its non-cakey and does not look heavy. It all looks nice for about 10-15 minutes, after which my face looks like I have not applied anything at all. My face doesn’t look fresh and I need to re-apply again. I tried changing my moisturizer and still it didn’t improve much.
I have normal to combination skin and this one did not perform very well for me. If you have oily skin, you better skip this. I guess it might perform better on dry skin, but make sure to moisturize your skin well before using this.
It performs comparatively better when I use it to set foundation. It prevents my t-zone from becoming oily through half day, after which I need a touch-up.
Pros of Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder:
- Powder is not flaky and has a smooth texture.
- Natural finish.
- Good for touch ups.
- Might work for dry skin type people.
Cons of Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder:
- Provides only sheer to light coverage.
- Staying power is less.
- Not suitable for very oily skin type.
- A little pricey for a drug store powder.
It is overall an average product for me. If you use only a compact as a base product on a daily basis and have more to cover, then this might not be the product for you. I like my Milani multi-tasker for that purpose. Hope this was helpful.
See you in next post, bye 🙂
