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.
I love this foundation. As for liquid foundation it is for sure my favorite. They have a lot of shades so it is very easy to find a good match for your skin tone. I have dry skin and the only problem I have with this is that sometimes when it dries it gets flaky and makes my dry skin more dry. It's very expensive for how much you get in the bottle but without a doubt I would buy it again.
Let me start by saying-- finding a foundation to work for me has been a battle for YEARS for me.
My skin is FAIR, and i mean snow white... every foundation i get, i always buy the LIGHTEST -0 shade, and it always comes out WAY to dark on me- fake, cake , mask look.
Maybelline mousse foundation was the closest to my pale i could find without making me look like a oompa-loopma. So ive been using that for years... I always thought I had oily skin, always using rice blot papers during the days.
I went into Macys with a random gift card from the holidays, thought what the heck, might as well try to ask around and find a "posh expensive" brand foundation for free..
Lady tried on URBAN DECAY NAKED SKIN 05, the lighest color with PINK highlights. LOW AND BEHOLD. I COLOUR FOR ME. This line makes so many different shades, i think anyone can make use of it!
It goes so super smooth, and I cannot get over how it looks matt ALL day. How i used to have to use rice blot papers every few hours during a 8 hour shift, i didnt even use it ONCE. If anything-- it sucked the oil out of my skin. Ive worn it for a few days now, putting it on at 8am-- take off around 10Pm. it lasts ALL day. i am shocked how beautiful it lasts. nevver seen a foundation that has such a matt glow for so many hours.
i totally recommend trying it; for the women who have horrible times trying to match up a foundation shade to their "unqiue" color, urban decay has got your back
NOTE Ive had this for three days, I will update for long term results.One of the best things about this is, is how easy it is to find my shade, which is usually nearly impossible, since my skin is a lighter shade of brown, but not white. Its tricky. When i found it in Ulta, it was easy to find my exact shade because there were so many to choose from to pinpoint my exact shade. The thing that drew me to this was, well, the size. I dont like spending my money on ridiculously small bottles.First I shake the bottle (ALWAYS shae the bottle) I push the pump down a little (dont push it down all the way it will be a mess, and then youll panic try to spread it on your face and will end up like snooki) 3 or 4 times does it for me. For about two light layers, i also dab some over my dark circles over my concealer.. Any more than two layers and it will become cakey. I liked that it gave my skin and even tone. But it didnt really cover any of my spots, which aren't really dark so i didnt really like that aspect. I have oily and dry skin on the center of my skin, so the foundation made my skin look cakey and my pores looked bigger. But people actually told me that they could barely see my blemishes so maybe I'm just being picky. I apply this using a flat 7$ foundation brush from Revlon. It works fine if you are careful. Oh, I use the smashbox primer, the green one so it stayed in place for about seven or eight hours (yay!) idk how long it would last without it, never tried, Im afraid to.
Overall: I'd give this a 3.7 (dont ask me why .7 I felt it was right) Its good for evening skin tone out, but it could cover blemishes better at such a high price (39 dollars without tax) I (THAK GOD) have not any acne for about acne for about a week now so idk how it would cover angry red bumps, probably not that well since it couldn't really conceal my light scars. But it didnt break me out at all, and i love the color. It looks really natural.
