I received samples of this foundation when i bought something else. All the shades were either too light or too dark, but i liked the coverage and finish. It was glowy, but not overly duey.
I decided to purchase it in the shade 2. I have a light skin tone with olive undertones (think Selena Gomez). The shade seemed good in the store, but when i got home it looked INSANELY yellow. Having olive skin yellow undertones usually work for me but it looked ridiculous. The pink undertones would not work for me because my skin is not cool. They should make neutral shades, or not make the yellow shades so extreme. I don't imagine it would match that many people well.
The finish was also different than it was in the sample. Its much more demi-matte, and not as glowy. I like demi matte foundations, but the problem with this one is it clings to every dry patch and fine line, and i do not even have dry skin. When you first apply it, it looks good, then 15 mins later it emphasizes every flaw on your face.
Another thing is that every time i wear it i break out in at least three pimples. I tried it 3 different times and everytime i broke out the next day. When i stopped using it my skin immediately started to clear. I think this is my skin reacting to something in the foundation, because if it clogs your pores usually it takes a couple weeks to come to the surface. Just keep that in mind if your skin is sensitive.
I recently started using this in one of the lightest shades, and I am loving it! Before, I have always used BareMinerals powder foundation. But I was noticing I was having quite a few breakouts and I was needing more coverage. So the woman helping me at JCPenny Sephora recommended this for me since I normally don't wear liquid foundation, and this feels light on the skin. And for extra coverage, I am setting it with my BareMinerals! I really like the way it looks and feels! Since switching up my makeup routine, I've recieved tons of compliments on good my makeup looks! That alone is worth the price of this foundation!!
It's a really light weight foundation, it's pretty buildable though. I wanted to love this foundation so much but sadly it's not for me. If you have really oily skin like me do not spend your money on this. It made me shiny after 2 hours and then it just slipped of my face. At the end of the day I looked like an oily mess. If you have dry skin or normal skin this will work for you. The finish is amazing, the packaging is nice and it looks very natural, but unfortunately it doesn't last on my oily skin.
I have trouble finding foundation that's light enough for me, but I find that their 0.5 shade works well with my skintone in the summer when I'm a little tan. It's blendable, not too heavy, but not too thin either; it's a fantastic everyday makeup that serves as a great base for evening out my skin tone. I wish they made a lighter shade so I could use it year-round without looking ridiculous!
HG foundation for sure! I have very oily skin with large pores around my nose, the occasional blemish and dry patches in the winter so I'm dealing with a lot of issues here and this foundation works well with all of them. It doesn't make my skin more oily like a lot of foundations do and doesn't highlight my dry patches. It stays on all day and lasts well into the night if I use a good primer. It's medium coverage but you can build it up. The texture is a little liquidy but I use the Real Techniques expert face brush to apply it and that works well. It looks very natural, just like my skin but better. I am shade 0.5 and it is one of the few foundations to ever match my skin.
The only issue I had was that the inner bottle (it has a thinner bottle inside the main packaging) leaked. It was a minor leak and I can still use it so it really isn't a big deal. I haven't heard of this happening to anyone else so I think I may have just got a weird bottle.
Overall it is my favorite foundation and I would recommend it to anyone!
quite thin and liquidy but its not too runny
aprox 8 hours before I need to touch up with a powder
they're many shades to choose from, colors ending with a .0 are warm toned and colors ending with a .5 are cool toned
i'm definitely a fan of the bottle, I love how it has a pump and the metal ball inside for keeping the product smooth when you shake it
I really enjoy this foundation, it gives a beautiful demi matte finish and hides all my redness and imperfections with still looking natural, it also feels very lightweight on the skin. It is a little pricey being $56 AUD but in my opinion it's worth it and I will be repurchasing.
the only thing i didnt like about this product is how it settles into my fine lines where my grin marks are. it didnt really settle into them under my eyes, probably because of the concealer and corrector i used. other than that, i love this foundation! people who are angry saying that this product is horrible because it doesbt give ull coverage foundation, ITS NOT SUPPOSED TO! its called "naked skin weightless" for a reason, its supposed to look like skin therefore letting your natural skin peek through it. and to those who say its watery, hopefully you shook it before you pumped it out because it clearly says on the bottle to shake it before usage. it is not a full coverage foundation anyway so it wont be thick. its definitely buildable but will make you look a little white (in my case anyway). overall, i think its a good product, good price, and great packaging because of the controllable pump. itd be a great first time brand name liquid foundation for those just starting out in brand names or liquid fndtns. i like to use it for every day because it feels so light i forget im wearing foundation! definitely repurchasing when i run out.
This foundation goes on really smooth and it really easy to find a color match.
I have combination skin, oily T-Zone...after 3 hours of wear my nose was super oily and by 6 hours my forehead was also a greasy mess. So oily I used a kleenix to wipe it off and was make up free after just one wipe, gross!
If you have dry skin to normal skin I think this foundation would be lovely but oily girls, stay away!
I was so excited to try this after reading all of the reviews. I liked everything about it except for the way it settled into my skin, meaning my fine lines. Whenever I wore it, I felt like it aged me five years. That was enough for this 33 year-old return it.
Ok so I usually use Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation but recently I have noticed my skin is very dry (not just because of the change in weather but I think because of my age) and the Tarte foundation would really emphasize my dry patches. I needed a new foundation fast. So I stopped by Ulta to get the Naked 3 palette and started looking at foundations. When I told the sales rep what I was looking for she suggested this stuff. She cleaned off my more scarred cheek and applied UD Naked foundation. It looked really great. Went on smooth, no dryness, and it covered my scars very well. I bought it on the spot. I do admit I was still a little skeptical that I would like it after I used it at home. I started out with a basic foundation brush and it didn't work very well. I was thinking that maybe I don't like UD Naked foundation after all. Then I read some reviews saying that some brushes don't work well but I wasn't ready to go out and buy a brush that someone recommended for use with this foundation. I decided to try out the Tarte foundation brush I got with my Tarte Amazonian foundation. It worked great. I now love this foundation.
Truely looks "naked"
Long lasting (had tears running down my cheek and it didn't budge; no touch up needed)
Medium coverage that is very build-able
Non drying and doesn't make me look like an oil slick
Won't work well with the wrong brush
A little runny (but then again I am used to the thicker Tarte foundation)
I am in love with this stuff. Even though it seems a bit runny to me, I still love the texture. It is so smooth and bendable. I am happy with this foundation and will repurchase.
