{Review} Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation

When Urban Decay first released their Naked Skin foundation, there was no doubt in my mind that I had to give it a shot. Luckily for me, having a tan was a great excuse to go out and purchase one.

From Sephora.com:
A weightless and virtually invisible foundation that creates a luminous, demo-matte finish.

This formula helps skin achieve natural, illuminated and bright finish - like the beautiful skin you were born with. Naked skin is formulated with light-diffusing spheres, transforming you to look professionally retouched. Buildable coverage allows women to customize their look. This finish is matte, never flat, and luminous, but not shiny.

On my skin:
 
PROS:
- great pump control
- feels like you have nothing on; lightweight
- buildable coverage without looking cakey (if you're careful)
- soft matte finish
- looks like skin, but better!

CONS:
- wears off fast on oily areas (my nose)
- accentuate dry patches
- can get cakey if you're not careful (esp. around the nose area)

Photo with finished look:

Needless to say, the foundation has an appropriate name! It's a light, yet buildable (with patience) foundation that will even out your skin-tone with just one pump. If you have oily skin like I do, I recommend carrying around a powder foundation with you to touch up.

Would I repurchase? Yes.

Thanks for stopping by!

  5. I honestly haven't been to impressed with this foundation from the reviews I saw. Then again I'm not in the market for foundation because I am completely happy with my Revlon's color stay mousse. The price tag isn't that friendly to those on a budget. It looks good one you though. It's a shame that it can wear away so fast.
