AMW Reviews: Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder

Hi everyone!  I'm back with another review!  I did a review on the most awaited Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation and the product lives up to its name, the effect is indeed nearly naked.  As stated on my "con", the liquid foundation is low in oil-control, which doesn't bother me much as I have very dry skin but for oily-skinned users out there, you may want to take a look at their Pressed Powder.  

Before you ask me about the coverage, you have to be reminded that this is a Pressed Powder, not a Powder foundation so it is expected that there is light or almost no coverage at all!  Pressed powder is a perfect tool to use to prevent your foundation from "caking up" as it doesn't have the extra coverage that may may make you look "too made up".

So, are you ready to read my thoughts on the Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder?

Read on...

Revlon says ---
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. 

Available in 6 shades.

AMW says ---
  • Finely milled, very silky feel.
  • Can mattify the face immediately upon application.
  • Gives an overall "fresh" look without the white cast.
  • Little fallout even if you use a brush to swirl on the product.  
  • Lightweight.  Doesn't have the cake-y feel.
  • Doesn't magnify pores and fine lines.
  • Compact is a bit too big for my taste.  The mirror is small and the sponge is too small as well.
  • Does magnify skin dryness/flakiness.
  • I asked my sister to try this since she has combination skin (normal/oily), she told me she need to retouch around 4 hours after application which I think is normal considering our weather.
A very smooth, finely milled setting powder perfect for users who likes the instant smooth and matte finish without added coverage.

from Revlon
  • Using the puff applicator, apply over entire face smoothing over forehead, chin, nose and jawline. 
  • For optimal results, you can build until your desired level of coverage.
from AMW
  • To remove excess oily, best applied only on the areas that oil up with a big powder brush or kabuki brush.
  • For added coverage, use a sponge with a patting motion.
  • Picked the wrong shade?  You can use these as highlighting and contouring powder.
  • If you use the sponge that comes with the compact, wash this often as the dirt may cause breakouts.
Will I repurchase?

To whom do I recommend this to?
Oily and combination skin.

Where to purchase and how much?
At local Revlon counters for Php525.00 (approx $12.20)

 The small sponge great for "retouch" especially on areas that tends to oil up. 
Ex. T-zone, sides of the nose.

For review, I used Light Pale and my sister used the Medium one
The shade of photo below: Light Pale

 Before and After
There is a minimal coverage for 2 layers of Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder.
My undereye circle lightened up a bit and my skin evened out.  Though dryness on the sides of my nose was magnified if you look closely on the after photo.

Overall using Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder only

Have you tried the Nearly Naked line from Revlon?
How do you like the coverage of the Pressed Powder on my skin?

Is it a YAY or NAY?
