Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Foundation Review

Hi ya’ll! I’ve been crazy busy lately, working during the day and then working from home evenings and weekends, along with having a life on top of that!

Recently, I had a 20% off coupon for Ulta and I used it to buy a bottle of Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup.

I love this stuff! At $39, it’s not the most affordable option in the makeup aisle, but the formula is amazing! I wouldn’t describe it as sheer or matte, it almost has a satin finish. It truly feels like naked skin – my skin, but better. And isn’t that the ultimate goal of foundation anyway?

I purchased the 3.5 shade, which is described as “light beige with slight pink undertone.” Naked Skin foundation comes in 18 different shades and I would suggest going in-store to test out what works best for you. I had received a sample card with four different shades from an online order, so that’s how I decided my best shade.

Here’s a side-by-side before and after:

April 2013

No makeup on the left. Wearing only Naked Skin foundation on the right (blended with a foundation brush).

See the difference?! It evened out my tone, covered small blemishes, while letting my skin shine through. It doesn’t feel heavy, cakey, or greasy. It just has a nice feel to it, not quite matte but not dewey either. Urban Decay describes it as “demi-matte that feels invisible but looks professional retouched.” I used about a quarter-to-half of a pump for one side of my face. In addition to this, I would add under-eye concealer and a light dusting of face powder (I used Ulta brand for both of those).

This is definitely an awesome beauty buy that I highly recommend!

    I’ve been eyeing this product for a while and was wondering what kind of skin type you are and how you think it worked for that skin type? I have combination/oily skin how do you think it would work for me?

      I have normal-to-dry skin, so I like this makeup because it doesn’t emphasize any dry patches and doesn’t make my skin feel tight and uncomfortable. I think it would work well with combination/oily because the “demi-matte” finish would facilitate in mattifying shine where you need it. It is also listed as free of oil, parabens and fragrances, so it shouldn’t clog your pores with anything else.
