Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder 030 Medium, Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder in Australia, Revlon Nearly Naked Powder

One of my makeup mottos is that… Primer, foundation and powder go together likes birds of a feather.  Primer preps my skin, foundation provides coverage to even out my complexion and powder helps hold everything in place.  Of course not everyone will agree, but each to their own skin 😉

Anyway, today’s review is basically a sequel to my review on Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation – it is indeed Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder.

Before I continue, let me tell y’all the truth – I prefer loose powder to pressed powder… but seeing as I was sent the Revlon Nearly Naked range for review, I had to be an open minded beauty guinea pig blogger.

Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder

Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder is housed in a simple chic white plastic case with a mini sponge.  The size is slightly wider but shorter in length than my iPhone 5.  If I were a midday-makeup-touch-up-kinda-gal, I would be slightly hesitant about lugging this around in my makeup bag as it does take up a little more room than to be desired.  However, if you are one of those girls who take a makeup CASE around in your handbag, it won’t matter that much to you anyway 😉  And also, the lid has an ickle mirror to make touch-ups on-the-go easier.

The Pressed Powder itself is finely milled and smooooth…  However, as you can see on my finger, the powder will sit and highlight fine lines…unless you lightly buff it in with a sponge.  I tried using this with a kabuki brush but it made my face look a bit too powdery.  Also, the kabuki brush creates a powder fall-out mess making the white case look dirty…

Instead my face favours Revlon Pressed Powder when lightly dabbed and then buffed in with a sponge.  It creates a matte finish so I like to concentrate it more on my oily T-zone area.

Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder comes in a range of shades so choose yours wisely.

Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation and Pressed Powder

I have read reviews where some ladies prefer to use Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder on its own without foundation as the base.  But I tried that a few times but I don’t think it offered enough coverage unless I CAKED it on.  Instead, I find it to be a highly suitable accompaniment to Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation which provides light coverage and the Pressed Powder gives me the extra coverage I need to mask my pregnancy pigmentation and keep the oiliness at bay.

One last photo for all those who are curious of what pressed powder ingredients are…  Yes, you have to squint your eyes to read the ingredient list so don’t bother 😛

I’m still not a pressed powder convert…  BUT the Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation and Pressed Powder combo work together really well so I’m happy to report that I will be using these babies during the hotter days when I feel like wearing a light foundation.

      @jenn f, Oooh, how is the UD Naked Skin Foundation? We don’t have UD in Australia – so sad! 🙁

    I am not using any beauty creams, powders, foundation, etc. Can I use this powder, simply on my face after face wash?

      @Emma Brown, It’s best to wear over moisturiser and sunscreen.

    I went and bought this powder after your review and I love it. I wear it over my bb cream and it made me look like I’m wearing full coverage in a natural way if that makes sense. 🙂

    Great review! I would love to try this out. The shades are pretty and I will just choose the one that suits my skin tone. can’t wait to try it out and see how it works.
