Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation

Hello beauties! I finally got around to writing about the Revlon Nearly Naked foundation. For the past few months it has been a favorite of many people so I decided to buy it in early February to see what all the hype was about. Let me tell you, I really like this foundation! It can be found at drugstores for $7-9, depending where you go.
I bought the lightest shade, Ivory, because I thought Vanilla would be too yellow on me. I wanted a foundation that would match my skin and not make me appear darker. My skin tone is neutral/yellow and although Ivory is more on the pink side, I think it is a good "neutral" shade as it does not appear very pink. The foundation has a natural finish on the face.

The foundation does not have a pump, but I am ok with that. I am not too picky with it.

Here it is blended out (top) and unblended (bottom). See "nearly naked" haha.

The foundation covers up my redness, but it does not fully cover up my blemishes. However, for a light-medium coverage (medium when built up) it does a pretty darn good job. I only apply one layer because I don't think multiple layers are necessary. If i need to cover anything else, I will just use concealer. It also makes me appear more awake and not so tired looking. 
The only issue I have with this foundation is that it does not have oil controlling properties. A few hours after applying, my face will start to get shiny. On the plus side, I found a mattifier made by Murad that acts as an oil control, moisturizer, and sunscreen. It keeps my face shine free, no matter what foundation I use! 

Would I repurchase? Heck yes! This is my "go to" foundation when I want something light and fresh feeling (almost everyday). It is cheap and works great.
