Review of Urban Decay Naked Skin by lovie23
I have finally found my perfect foundation (after a lot of wasted money on others such as MAC, Bobbi Brown, LM etc)
First of all the packaging is hygenic and it comes in a clear bottle with a pump (what more can we want) The bottle is quite big but it fits in my make up bag, so should be ok for most.
Some may think £27 is steep but for the ingredients (is paraben free, YAY) and for the size of the bottle, I think it's totally worth it as a little goes a long way.
Now for the foundation itself; I didn't even know UD were releasing a new foundation until one day mum & I were shopping, I was rushing so the girl gave me shade3.5. I tried it for a couple of days and thought it was a little light for my skin tone so I got another sample which was the 4.0. I tried this until the sample ran out, I wore it both during the day and for a night out. I was impressed!! It stayed on my skin the whole day (I have normal/oily skin) for e.g on most days,I only had to sweep a little powder over my face about 1pm and I had it on from 8am.
I bronzed it up for the night out and my skin looked glowing in photos - I didn't even have tan on so I was surprised.
I prep my skin with Arbonne's primer (amazing) I apply the foundation with UD Good Karma's Optical Blurring Brush - which I recommend to buy, it leaves a flawless finish and only the tiniest amount of product is needed. I find it quite good coverage (I don't need heavy coverage) and set it was UD's powder. It may look a little fake if a few layers are applied, I haven't tested that as I don't believe in piling foundation on anyways.
I wouldn't usually break out but some foundations have caused me to in the past and I can safely say after about three-four weeks of using this foundation, it hasn't clogged my pores (super YAY)
If your looking for a lightweight foundation with a demi-matte finish (leaves my skin glowing) then I'd recommend you to get a sample!!
