There’s a first time for everything in H.O land, but I never imagined one of those firsts would be a drugstore foundation becoming my “go-to” for everyday wear. Usually my skin freaks out at the sight of a foundation from the isles of Boots and Superdrug, but after trying the Revlon Nearly Naked foundation on a complete whim I’ve found myself reaching for it every day, above my beloved tinted moisturisers and high end foundations. Say whaaauuut?!
I’m currently using a hybrid of Nude and Shell shades – even though the shade range is good for a drugstore brand I still have to be that person who is in between shades – call it the olive skin tone that hasn’t seen the sun in months, lack of gradual tanner on the face, or in the worlds of my other half: “difficult” Which ever is the case. I’m in between shades.
Aside from the who two bottle debacle I’ve been really impressed by this one. It has a watery consistency, not too dissimilar to the Jemma Kidd Light As Air foundation and has a similar finish too. Natural to Dewy depending on your skin type. The lasting power is not as fantastic on me but seeing as my daily routine involves going home and sitting on the sofa – I’m not so fussed about it not looking as pristine by 6pm. Then there’s the more obvious factor I’m loving – it’s not breaking me out. Lack of vegetables and too much chocolate is, yes, but not this one. *slathers on face*
So that’s one budget foundation securing it’s place in the beauty bag – so how about my other purchase – the Bourjois Happy Light? That one is a no go unfortunately ladies…
