I'm obsessed with youtube. I'm literally on it everyday.
I recently saw Missglamorazzi Review of the Nearly Naked Foundation and I had to try it out! Although, it seems everyone else had the same idea because the shelves were about cleared. Finally after 4 stores later, I found my shade in the foundation and powder.
I'm the lightest shade in the "Nearly Naked" line. I wasn't surprised but geezzz the light shades were impossible to find.
This foundation runs about $9.99 and has an SPF20 (found mine at ULTA)
I am 110 - Ivory. Here is a list of all the other shades.
The consistency is a bit watery but still has a slight thickness to it.
Unfortunately there is no pump on this foundation so don't do like me and try to pour it out fast. It's a pain to get out of carpets :/
I'm also the lightest shade in the "Nearly Naked" powder. This shade is 010 - Fair.
CVS, Walgreens & K-Mart were all out of this shade but ol' faithful Wal-mart had one left!
Also, like the foundation, this runs about $9.99
This powder feels like high end! It's not creamy but it's also not powdery. It's very smooth and silky soft to the touch.
This is me with a clean face and no makeup on.
I'm starting to break out like a teenager again :( .
I have more under the skin acne than actual surface acne.
I'm almost certain it's the yucky city water here.
In order to get a flawless finish, I apply my makeup with a damp sponge and smooth out with a finishing brush. I also use the brush to apply my powder.
Yes, my daughter pulled the top of my sponge off, crazy kid. This sponge is $2 at walmart and the brush came with a set of brushes from Cost-Co.
The left side of my face has already had foundation applied unlike the right side.
See the difference? The redness in my face was toned down a lot and it was easily build-able to cover that yucky acne!
Now for the powder and setting spray!
This foundation and powder combined are amazing!
You don't feel like you have a ton of make-up caked on your face but it still gives amazing coverage!
Being super lightweight and build-able is a plus for me!
It really does give you that "naked look" while still covering every blemish you may have.
So how does it hold up? 8 hours of house cleaning and running around with a two year old and I still didn't need to touch anything up! Even with my skin being combination skin and oily in the "T-zone" it held on like a champ!
