Reviews from the H-E-B Beauty Panel
"I used the Nearly Naked Liquid Makeup and Nearly Naked Pressed Powder. I was initially concerned the foundation would not match my skin. Not only was it the perfect shade, but after visiting with others on the Beauty team, I found out they also used the same color and it looked perfect on all of us. I always think of switching foundation or shades as a little stressful because you never know if the color will work on your skin. In this case, it worked for all of us and looked great on all of us. The Nearly Naked Pressed Powder came with a small sponge applicator. I used the applicator the first time, but for all other applications, I used my powder brush. The results were similar—I just prefer a brush. The combination of the foundation and powder gave me a flawless/air-brushed look. The foundation gave great coverage without feeling heavy or unnatural."

"I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked the Revlon Nearly Naked Makeup! I usually have a very difficult time finding a foundation that matches my skin, but this foundation looks great! The makeup goes on smooth and creates a very even complexion. I especially love the powder-like finish. I also love the Revlon Top Speed Nail Polish and FX Top Coat. The polish dries fast, even after two coats and the Spellbound Hypnotizing FX Top Coat added a fun finish with glitter and small stars and moons!"
-Amber, H-E-B Beauty Advisor
"I love the Nearly Naked foundation and pressed powder! The foundation went on smooth and had buildable coverage. The pressed powder finished off the look nicely and wasn't cakey. I think the PhotoReady shadows offered very deep color. The ColorStay lipstick is great! Creamy product and offers a lot of color."
-Tracy, H-E-B Beauty Buyer
"I typically don't use foundation because most seem to give me a 'caked-on' look. I like my makeup to appear natural and light. This foundation is great! It's not too heavy or thick and blends very naturally. I will definitely continue to use this as part of my beauty regime! Thanks Revlon, I love the Nearly Naked line!"

"I like the Revlon Top Speed Nail Polish. It dries quickly and the consistency of the product isn't too watery or thick, which makes it easy to paint your nails. I tried the color Superstitious, which is a fun indigo blue, it's not a color I would typically wear but looks great against my lighter skin tone."

"I really like the Revlon ColorStay lipstick. The color stays on all day without having to reapply and my lips feel well moisturized. The foundation has good coverage and feels light on my skin."
-Kristal, Guest Beauty Panelist
"I thought the Nearly Naked powder was great to use on the T-zone to avoid shine and set in a finished look. I don't typically use powder for all over coverage, so that's why I just used a very light amount over my usual liquid makeup. Of all the other products, the Ultimate Suede Lipstick was my favorite. I tried Backstage, a richer wine pigment that went well with my olive skin tone. The lipstick can be applied lightly for those who want more of a natural tint."
-Jenina, heb.com Associate Online Editor
"The Revlon PhotoReady Primer and Shadow in Watercolors Aquarelle is super fun! I love how it has a primer right on the shadow palette that matches all the shadows. The directions provided make it easy to get the perfect look as well. The Revlon Nearly Naked liquid foundation and pressed powder felt light and the liquid was especially lightweight even with SPF in it! The coverage was great. The powder spread easily and did not look over applied or cakey at all. Revlon's Ultimate Suede lipstick was absolutely elegant. It stayed all day and didn't fade to a pinkish color like a lot of lipsticks do (which is one of my huge pet peeves)."
-Emma, Teen Beauty Panelist
"The Revlon Nearly Naked Makeup is a product with many wonderful attributes for youthful skin. The very light liquid provides even coverage that gives a fresh look that lasts about 8 hours. But as the years progress we need a formula that is a little more forgiving and does not sink into the fine lines. When I tried Revlon Nearly Naked Powder it is very matte and heavy when applied with the included sponge applicator. Use a brush for a better finish. Powder did not need a touch up for 6 hours."
