Product Review: Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder

I think I mentioned that I'm currently working remotely from my normal remote office in VA. I'm in Florida with my parents and there are some issues I'm helping them with. It's a bit stressful around here and I missed blogging on Thursday. Let's see if I can get back in the swing of things with a couple of blog entries for Friday!

A couple of months ago, I reviewed Revlon's Nearly Naked foundation here. At the time, I didn't purchase the coordinating powder but I've recently done that and have been wearing it a lot. Click below to find out what I think!

I purchased the Nearly Naked powder in Light/Pale for $7.49 at Target. It looks quite a bit darker in the pan than it does on the skin. In the foundation, my color is Nude
 and the Light colored powder works well but I could easily use the Fair shade just as well.

The case itself is pretty much no frills. There is a decent sized mirror and the size of the powder pan is a good value. Revlon also includes a spongy type of pad to apply the powder but I find that a brush works a lot better (I carry a retractable brush in my purse). 

I really like the feel of the powder. When I swatch it on my finger, it feels silky, like a much more expensive powder. On the face, it glides on and does a great job at setting concealer, etc. The nicest thing is that it doesn't give a "powdery" look, which can be deadly on aging skin. It really does seem like a pretty bare finish. 

Revlon's Nearly Naked Powder is available at your favorite drugstore in the following shades:

  • Fair
  • Light
  • Medium
  • Medium Deep
  • Deep
  • Dark
With a regular retail price of $7.99, this is a GREAT value! I've been wearing it for almost two weeks straight during my stay in Florida and it holds up really well.
