Foundation : Revlon Nearly Naked.

Expectations for this were really high after reading multiple reviews and watching first impression videos. I was hoping this would become my 'go to' foundation but unfortunately I was left incredibly disappointed and with a very empty pocket. Revlon foundations don't come cheap after all. Although this is one of the cheaper Revlon foundations. I accidentally went with this shade after swatching it in the store and forgetting to step outside to take a proper look. Rookie mistake Jess. Never one to waste a product I continued to use this throughout the summer when I was rocking that little bit more of a tan. This foundation promises to blend into your skin to give you a fresh natural look, as though you're not wearing any make up. I didn't find this at all. At first I thought it looked okay and then I had a proper look and realised that this clung anywhere it could cling and overly emphasized any troublesome areas of my skin. I have bad skin. I would rather not draw attention to how vile it looks. I found it especially hard to blend out and make even across all my face. Even with the tiniest drop it looked cakey and just sat on my face. Don't get me wrong. It did mask the redness of my skin and in certain lights looked more seamless than in others but in public my face looked a right cakey mess and I was overly paranoid about it. What disappointed me the most is, I paid so much for this cause I thought I'd get my moneys worth but now its just another foundation hiding in the back of my make up drawer.
Have any of you tried this? What did you think, over hyped or just right?

I had my eye on this until recently when I started noticing a lot of negative reviews! Think I'll give this a miss!

I really don't like Revlon makeup, I just think there is too much hype and you can get so much better products for your money. I always so the same thing with foundation in the summer, total nightmare!
