Holy Grail Foundation!
I've always been interested in trying a higher end foundation, particularly from the Urban Decay line. finally, about a month ago, I purchased the UD Naked Skin foundation.
I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked this product! i was able to find my right shade right away. & after using it for a week I was happy to see that it had NOT dried out my skin or caused me to break out at all. it has a really good coverage & is able to cover up about 95% of my blemishes/imperfections. I love the finish it gives. it makes my skin look so good & is so lightweight I almost forget I'm wearing any foundation at all!
All-in-all, my favorite foundation so far & am very happy with it. definitely worth every penny!
So far I've loved this product! I usually don't use it on my good skin days but when I have some bad breakouts I use this. It's a great foundation and it's not so matte that your skin looks flat. It ranges from little to full coverage and it certainly does my skin wonders. I got this from Sephora for about $35-39 and the bottle is definitely bigger than most foundations there.
I use this fondation everyday now ever since I got it last week! It gives a very nice coverage and it looks great onthe skin! The best fondation I've ever had in the world! I also enjoy the size of the product, it is a good amount and hopefully will last a long time! Thank you Urban Decay! Will be buying this product again soon!
Alli simpson uses this!
She did a makeup tutorial on her YouTube page.... YouTube.com/soalli
The shade she uses is in the downbeat of her video.... She used her fingers to blend and set it with a transculant loose powder form Laura mercir
my new foundation...
I got a sample of this foundation from Sephora, and I was in love the first time I used it. It's very light, and a great build-able coverage foundation. It feels like my own skin when I use it. I've had so many people ask me, what I'm using, and its this.. They all love it, and I have so many of my co-workers going out to get it as well...
My face is naked!
I bought this for my cousin. She loved it, and it looked beautiful on her! So, I bought one for myself. ;)
I've had this over a month now, so I've experimented enough with this foundation. Mostly at work where I am enduring an dietary assistant job as a dishwasher, cook, etc.
Here's what I've found with my combination skin:
Coverage: sheer-medium/ It evens out my skin tone plagued by mild rosacea. You will still notice my acne, but it's not drawing your attention to it. It looks very natural when using it sheer, but you can tell a little that it's makeup once build the coverage higher. It really doesn't make my pores "disappear", but it doesn't accentuate them either.
Wear time without primer:6 hours/Towards the end of the six hours foundation sunk into pores on chin and nose area.
Wear time with primer(hourglass veil mineral primer): 7.5 hours/ Towards the end the foundation didn't look like it was seeping into my pores, but it was getting there with it being a bit dewy.
Transferable: It does a little bit. I have touched my face while wearing this a few times, It's like I swatched a sheer cheap eye shadow with one touch.
Drying Time: The foundation is not sticking after I applied it. It's still blend-able when building up coverage. I often find that I don't need to set it with powder! I do when I want the longevity to be extended. (I use UD Naked setting powder when I feel the need. You don't really need a setting powder.)
Scent of the foundation: It does say to shake it before every use, which gets rid of the smell.(Does more than that, btw) I did find the smell the first time I used it to be like how acrylic paint smells. I don't smell that smell now, and I'm pretty sensitive to smells. (Big nose problems lol)
Acne/irritation problems: It didn't bother my acne or cause huge breakouts. I usually blame my hormones.
I usually go with a primer before I wear this. I apply the foundation with a beautyblender dupe for sheerness (1-2 layers), and a 3rd layer with a foundation brush for more coverage.
I recommend this foundation! BUT I would suggest sampling this first at a Ulta/Sephora (if possible)! I went too light(1.0) on my first purchase, but I kept it for my winter shade and bought 2.0. Both 1.0 & 2.0 do match my neutral/pink undertone, but I'm not quite sure if it'll match warmer/yellow undertones. I'll have to make my sister test it out on her yellow undertone. Also, this foundation is about $39usd. Again, get samples if possible! :)
