My readers know my fondness for Revlon Nearly Naked foundation. It works for both oily and dry skin, leaving a matte but glowy finish. It has amazing coverage that quickly builds to full coverage; depending on your skin you might not need concealer. I wore Shell last year when I reviewed it, so I grabbed the same color this summer, but can’t tell if I should have gone darker with summer skin.
And the next day I got Revlon Nearly Naked in Nude, one shade warmer, but in a different lighting which makes it hard to get a good comparison:
At the same time, I tested out Revlon Age Defying CC Cream. With this one I think I got the color spot on. It looks more natural but has lighter coverage. Oh well. You just use more concealer then. I’m torn between these two products (especially since I don’t know if I got the right color on Revlon NN).
Revlon Age Defying CC Cream has some other things going for it. For one, it’s SPF 30. For another, it’s not in one of those super annoying glass bottles that spills all over everything. Save me please.
Thirdly, it’s packed full of skincare ingredients. I LOVE skincare makeup. Licorice root extract, grape fruit extract, sodium hyaluronate, and more add a little bit of love to your morning makeup routine. Maybe not enough to replace your skincare, but extra doesn’t hurt. 🙂
Another Revlon product I love? The Revlon Colorstay Concealer I am wearing lightly in both pictures. LOVE this concealer, which looks like skin and can be built to a good coverage.
