So I’m probably killing you guys with all these Urban Decay reviews but I swear this is the last one (I think…I’m probably lying though)! Anyway, last week, I got that chance to sample Urban Decay’s new foundation line, Naked Skin. They’re really going all out with this whole Naked thing, and I love it. This Urban Decay line is definitely pumping out amazing products, and from the look of it, they’ve got something up their sleeves for lip products next . Anywho, I am totally loving this foundation, you guys. I have been on the hunt for a good foundation for quite some time now, ever since my BB cream oxidized on me and turned me into an Oompa Loompa. That look may work for Snookie, but it’s really not for me..at all.
Alright, let’s get down to business, shall we? Urban Decay’s Naked Skin is stated to be a “demi-matte” foundation, so it’s a nice balance between matte and dewy, which is perfect for any season. Usually during the summer, I try to go for lighter, dewey foundations to get that nice glow but I find myself reaching for this all the time. I can see myself using this during the winter as well, which sounds amazing for my wallet. This really is a lightweight foundation but provides good coverage for me. If you like full coverage for your foundation, you may have to layer this one a little bit but it still does a great job covering those small blemishes. This foundation is also oil and paraben free, so this is great for people with sensitive skin, too. What I love love love about this foundation is that it really doesn’t feel like I have anything on. I get 8 hours of wear with Naked Skin before I have to retouch up with some powder which is great.
There are some other ingredients that Naked Skin contains that are supposed to be amazing for your skin too!
Matrixyl 3000– an anti-wrinkle peptide
Litchiderm– used to brighten and protect the skin from stress and dehydration
Green Tea–soothes skin with anti-oxidants and stimulates collagen production, which gives skin that youthful appearance
Vitamin E–fights free radicals
Woooo that’s a lot of amazing stuff packed into this foundation!
The packaging is super sleek and comes with a built in pump that, from what I can tell, gives you the perfect amount of product. I’ve run into terrible pumps before that give either way too much product or hardly anything at all–it really is one of my biggest pet peeves.
As you can see, I got matched with shade 6.0.
I believe there are 18 different shades of foundation with a unique numbering system. Foundation shades ending in .5 are more cool/neutral toned while shades ending in .0 are more warm/golden toned.
This will be on sale at the end of July for $38.00 on the Urban Decay website as well as Sephora, Ulta, and certain Macy’s.
