Nearly Naked Loose Powder promises a "flawless, natural-looking finish" and delivers! This talc-based powder has an ultra-silky texture that feels weightless and sets makeup without looking flat or dry. All three shades are suitable for most skin tones since they are so translucent. Someone with very oily skin will likely want a more absorbent powder, but all other skin types will appreciate what this has to offer.

Talc, Silica, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Phenyl Trimethicone, Nylon-12, Cyclomethicone, Grape Seed Extract, Centaurea Cyanus Flower Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Gingko Biloba Leaf Extract, Lecithin, Silk Powder, Phenoxyethanol, Mica, Iron Oxides, Titanium Dioxide, Ultramarine Blue, Red 30

Long a standby for those with sensitive skin seeking hypoallergenic products (though that term is unregulated and can be applied to any product, regardless of ingredients), Almay continues to refine its comprehensive makeup line. In early 2006 the company repackaged its old favorites, and also relaunched several new makeup items. Everything now has a sleek new look and color-coded packaging. We admit, the makeover is effective, not just product-wise but visually too.

Shopping this drugstore line is now much easier because of the clearly defined product and color family groupings. Lamentably, testers and trial sizes of the makeup are still scarce regardless of where you shop. Almay has always been a reliable line for foundations, powder, and mascara. Within its current lineup you'll find that remains true. Their foundations are better than ever, and still offer full, broad-spectrum sun protection and a mostly neutral palette. We also found their concealers and mascaras have improved, as have the pencil options. When it comes to shopping for makeup staples with state-of-the-art formulas, Almay has many winners, and some innovative surprises that its competitors would be wise to learn from.

    Unbelievably beautiful
    • I used to use Lancome photogenic powder which was so nice and light on skin and ever since it was discontinued I have been searching for something that wouldn't appear cake-y and dusty on my skin, esp in photos. This is such a great powder, I use the #100 Light/pale shade and it matches my skin perfectly.the texture is fine and blends so easily and leaves my skin looking really natural instead of heavy. It looks like real skin and makes my skin look glowy even in pictures!! Love it !

    Did not like this product.
    • This looked really dry on and the lightest shade turned orange. Will be returning it. Next!
