I absolutely love this! I usually have trouble finding foundation that's light enough (I'm too pale for MAC) so was so surprised when this worked for me. I went into my local department store to get a sample and the gentleman on the counter applied it for me to show me how to apply it with the optical blurring brush. I couldn't believe how well this held up! So I went back the next week to purchase it.
It hasn't let me down yet, my skin has never looked so good! I use a light hand to give a natural coverage, it's got a lovely finish and is buildable without being cakey (I have dry/ combination skin so this is sometimes an issue). I didn't buy the urban decay brush and use a real techniques expert face brush, I found this works just as well.
I'd recommend this to anyone, it's a little more expensive than I would usually go for but it's worth every penny. I don't usually stick with foundations very long but this may just make me change my mind.
This product is better than about 90% of the foundations out there right now. I give UD huge kudos for giving us a nice shade range. I am not as in love with Naked Skin as I had been when I first got it, but it is a really lovely foundation. I am very pale, combo skin with acne marks. My main concern, aside from color match, would be that this product would not cover the redness in my cheeks and my various acne spots and scars. In spite of the fact that this product is very fluid, it seems to really pack the pigment and cover quite nicely. I did have a problem with the pump breaking on my first bottle, but UD has excellent customer service and they promptly replaced it. I have tried a lot of different application methods, but BeautyBlender/sponge and domed buffing brush are my favorite options. Does this product look like "naked" skin? Not really. Is it a nice foundation if you want something that is not mask-like and looks somewhat natural? Yes, absolutely.
Okay, first off it's really hard to find a shade light enough to match my skin. I've tried so many foundations and BB creams but none of them have made my skin look and feel this good. Just as it says, it actually does feel invisible. I use a fluffy brush to apply mine and it blends so well applying the perfect amount of coverage. I feel like it really allows my skin to breathe. I love this foundation.
Applies like a dream.
I am loving every minute of this foundation. It's so light, and applies like a dream. Plus they make a shade that actually matches me quite well! Which is extremely difficult for me to find! It'll give you a gorgeous, airbrushed looking finish, without any heavy feeling makeup.
I love that I can buff it into my skin, and it dries down almost within seconds. The coverage is pretty medium, but it can be layered and made into a heavier coverage foundation, without it looking like you have layers of makeup on. I actually DID purchase the full size of this foundation after trying out a sample, and it's been one of my best purchases recently!
It also does not make my skin oily, or transfer/fade through out the day. I do prefer a matte finish, and I'd say this is more of a satin finish, but applying a matte finishing powder makes it exactly what I want in a foundation.
I haven't had any problems with my skin reacting to this since I've started using it, and my skin is extremely sensitive.
Loving this so much!
Favorite foundation ever!
I wanted this foundation since UD announced they were making it, so the first thing I bought when I went to the mall was Naked Skin :)
I made sure it matched my skintone while in Sephora and when I brought it home and tried it out, I was quite impressed. The pump is ideal, and the package it came in was so pretty!! It was taller/bigger than I thought it might be. When I used the foundation, I noticed a change in radiance on my skin, it was instantly brighter. The formula was a little bit thinner that I preferred but went on easily and covered all the red spots and dark spots on my skin. Love it so much!
