I had been wearing the new Cover Girl Foundation 3 in 1, Bare Minerals foundation and Revlon Color Stay foundation and I was really happy with the Cover Girl Foundation, but wanted to give the Urban Decay Naked a try. I am really glad I did. The finish is very skin like and not overly matte. It does look very natural. I use a buffing brush for application and really make sure it is applied evenly and buffed in especially around my nose. I have hyperpigmentation on the driving side of my face and it covers it pretty well, but it usually takes a heavy duty concealer to completely cover it any way. It does not settle into my pores or fine wrinkles. I have been topping it with Urban Decay's Razor Sharp powder in Illusion and have been very happy. The MUA matched me to a 3.0 which is a very good match for me. I do not use a primer underneath and I wear Olay Complete moisturizer with sunscreen which works great underneath. I am planning on buying the foundation brush from Urban Decay just to see if I like the way it applies the foundation even more.
Wonderful packaging. Superb formula. Gorgeous finish. No shades lighter than caucasian-with-a-tan. Oh, Urban Decay. I'm not angry. I'm disappointed.
I am now on my third tube of this foundation and I'm still just in love as I was the day I bought it. Medium coverage, silky application, staying power, and hydration. Never clogs my pores and gives the most beautiful glowing natural finish. My HG foundation.
i bought this foundation for my wedding day and it was amazing! i still use it now! and it feels so light on my face but i covers all my red spots and acne scars and there were so many shades available! it has a great staying power and i love the satin like finish! its so perfect in pictures as well!
I got several samples of this foundation in the bag of free goodies that UD was giving out (spend $50, get the bag worth $50) and tried it today. I have combination-oily skin with big pores and lots of red in my cheeks and nose. The 1.0 one was a bit too light but the closest match (1.5 is generally all right for me). By the end of the work day I noticed it was all but faded and my skin was very oily and sticky. It transferred to my fingertips if I touched my face at any time during the day, despite having set it with Tarte powder. It also made a healing blemish look pretty obvious and awful. Would not purchase.
I was really excited to try this product out however i'm really disappointed in it. It is light coverage which is what i wanted however i have normal/slightly dry skin and it just clings to every flake or dry patch. Although it does look good with powder to smooth it out at first, after a few hours it really does look terrible.
Definitely would not buy this again.
I was very excited to get this foundation as the ladies at Sephora
made it seem like a dream come true. I bought shade 1.0 which was the perfect shade for me. When I first applied the foundation (primer first) I was mostly pleased but not even an hour later it looked AWFUL. It made my skin even dryer and made it look flaky and I only have a little dry skin. If you have dry skin STAY AWAY from this product it only makes things worse, I would rather not wear anything. If you have almost perfect skin or a little oily this would probably be perfect for you(:
This foundation was easy to blend and offered a little bit of a glow, too. I wouldn't buy this again due to it being quite watery and it didn't offer much coverage when it came to my acne marks no matter how much I tried to build it up. If you've got perfect skin with barely any blemishes it would be perfect for you but as a women who suffered from acne and is left with the marks I wouldn't say buy this. The ingredients is good for the skin and it does make your skin feel like you've got nothing on thus the name naked but definitely used better.
Iím a huge fan of Urban Decay face products, so I knew I had to try this out. The pore perfecting primer is HG for me. It was also well advertised and I remember the initial reviews were positive. So I marched down to Sephora and I got a sample that lasted me a full week. Therefore I had some time to see if it was for me or not. The foundation is advertised as demi-matte, but it was more matte for me. I would say it was about the same as all my other matte foundations that I have owned in the past. The coverage was definitely medium. This didnít look all that great on me.I seem to prefer more of a "glow" and I don't get that with this foundation. I hope to try Estee Lauder next. I will not purchase.
I love this foundation. I got the shade 9.0 and it blended into my skin really well. I like the colour availability for this product. This is a light weight foundation with build able coverage. I have sensitive acne prone skin and this product did not break me out at all. I love the fact that this product along with wearing a primer kept the oils off my face for a longer period of time. I am almost done my first bottle. This product has lasted me over 6 months. I would defiantly repurchase this product as it is my holy grail foundation.
