I used to consider this my HG foundation, I wore it everyday to school for about 4 months. Somedays I would notice it would melt off my face by noon. I don't know if its just my skin type, but it was not very long lasting. If I wanted to wear it out at night, you could almost guess it would be off by the time I started sweating. I have set it with so many powders but nothing seems to do the trick. I was also color matched by a Sephora employee but it seemed to always leave me looking ghostly. It's a shame because I love the light-to medium coverage for everyday use. It also worked well with my acne prone skin. It did sometimes draw attention to dry patches, but only if my skin was having an especially dry day. Overall, its not a bad foundation, just needs to work on its staying power!

I asked for a sample of this from Sephora before buying it to try to find a match to my shade. I tried it on for the night & I did find that it was a decent match, but not as good as my other foundations that I own. The foundation itself was a nice consistency, it didn't feel too thick & it also had decent coverage.
The one thing I hated about this foundation is that it reflects flash & there is nothing I hate more than my face looking like a ghost even though I'm not pale skinned. So if you were planning on wearing this foundation for a night out or where you'll be taking photos with flash, I strongly suggest NOT to buy this foundation.

I have decently oily skin, and after a disastrous two-day bout with Benefit Oxygen Hello flawless! foundation I was ready to try this.
The pump and packaging are very cute and light-weight; only problem is it's kinda fragile...the first time I dropped it broke the pump almost completely off, so I have to be very careful. It's gonna be a pain to travel with!
But as far as the coverage goes, it's nice and light to medium. If you're looking for something to completely mask your face, this ain't going to do it. But it definitely covers most normal little imperfections and gives a nice even tone, which is why I wear foundation (otherwise my skin is 10 different colors.) The finish is pretty matte. I set mine with powder and with that it stays for around 4-5 hours pretty well. I have to do some touching up after that, but it never really leaves the skin. I wouldn't recommend it for older skin, but if yours is pretty young and you need something lightweight and sweet, I would give this a try. Took away one for the price, though. For $38 it should have had more staying power.

I really wanted to love this foundation but it makes me break out. So sad. The coverage is beautiful. Seems to blur imperfections and still looks very natural. After a week of use I noticed clogged pores and pimples in places I never break out. Careful if you have sensitive skin.

I am so on board with this foundation. I believe, dare I say it, HG status for me. Usually UD is known for their eye products, so this really surprised me.
I never had terrible skin. Even in my teens, I would only ever get a couple tiny pockets of acne, usually on my chin. My concerns have always been a slight uneven skintone and enlarged pores in the T-zone. For me, this foundation has the perfect amount of coverage, evening things out without being overly opaque. It looks the most natural of any foundation I've ever used and, even without powder, lasts quite awhile. I've never had an issue with it clogging my pores or breaking me out, but I also don't have sensitive or over-oily skin.
I use the lightest shade, 0.5, but this is not unusual as I'm always the lightest in any other line I've used. The great thing about Naked is the large range of shades, which (in theory) should make finding a good match easy.
I use it in conjunction with the Good Karma brush that was designed to be used with this specific foundation, and the combination, for me, is worth the price. I find that, between the consistency of the foundation itself, which is significantly thinner than most foundations, and the performance of the brush, I need to use very little product. One pump covers my entire face, blending out into the neck, perfectly. I bought this at the beginning of October and it's now the beginning of February and it's only about half gone, and this is with use, on average, of 5-6 days/week. The results combined with the amount of product you get is, to me, worth the price.
I also love that it comes in a pump dispenser, as it's the most hygienic and easiest way to control the flow of product. The "shaker" inside is great because it makes sure everything is mixed together thoroughly for the best results. I will definitely be re-purchasing when I run out.

abosolutely love this liquid foundation. It drys fast, its light, and its the perfect match for my asian skin. It leaves a dewey finish. However, since I have oily skin I have to figure out a regimen to hold this in place. So without primer or naked de-slick, this will melt off my face by noon.
edit>>oh no! i think this is what is making me break out recently =(

Bought this and tried it several ways, and none worked for my combination/leaning towards dry in the winter skin. I was matched in Sephora to 3.5, which seemed dark to me, but the other lighter shades were too yellow for my cool skin. Its strange to me that it goes from 0.5 to 3.5 for the cool tones, with no rosy shades in between. I found this to be very matte, drying, and powdery looking on my skin, no matter how I applied it or how much I moisturized first. Not naked, mask like. Sponge, fingers, Good Karma brush...all the same. If it did look slightly okay it was because I used a TINY amount, which would fade in 4 hours. Not a good match for middle aged skin, only made me look older. I tried this with UD bb cream, and it was an orange mess. Tried with Tarte bb, and still a dry mess. Worse, I dropped the bottle once (2 feet), and the top cracked all around, so foundation spilled out and would splatter all around if I tried to shake it. Giving it to my teenage daughter to see if it will work on her oily skin. Giving up on UD face products and sticking with their eye products.

Yes yes and yes! This is the best foundation I have used yet. It is definitely buildable without being cakey and lasts all day on my oily skin. For daytime (work in particular) I find that 1 layer gives the perfect amount of coverage and looks totally natural. The packaging is fantastic since it comes with a pump and I really like that you can see through the bottle and see how much product is left.
The yellow-toned shades (ending in .0) are really well done. I recommend you get color matched at Sephora to find the right shade. Can't recommend this foundation enough. It's one that I will definitely repurchase.

I really like this foundation. I've been wearing it since right after Christmas and love the way it looks on my skin. My only complaints are that it doesn't last all day and I tend to become oily towards mid-day. I usually apply it at around 7:30 am and feel that I need touch ups by 2 pm. Also, I have a tendency to become oily around my nose and chin and this foundation doesn't help. It does, however, make my skin look flawless and as if I've been airbrushed. I don't have too many blemished but on the ones I do have it covers nicely and is buildable. I use it with UD's Optical Blurring Brush so application is a DREAM.

I was matched for this at Sephora in shade 5.5. I was looking for something demi-matte, but lightweight and that didn't look like I had a face covered with makeup. I love how lightweight this is! It looks so natural too, but still gives nice medium covered (without looking like I have tons of makeup on). It just looks like my skin only better.
It's so pricey, which is the only flaw I'm giving it. It lasted all day and night, when set with my MAC Studio Careblend pressed powder. I will purchase this when i finish my sample.
If you want light/medium lightweight coverage, you'll like this a lot. If you want full, matte coverage, this isn't for you.
p.s. i usually have to blot throughout the day, and i didn't even have to blot at all with this! yay for that!

went to sephora last night and got this, i really am loving the foundation. i was surprised that the SA swatched me at level 7 because this is my "winter" skin and i am pretty light now and the foundation looks DARK! but im wearing it today and it blended very well. very smooth, light texture and most importantly (for me, oily queen) MATTE finish! its been 4 hours now and no touch ups! ill probably have to jump to a 9.0 when the summer hits. anything with an even number (7.0) is a warm undertone (golden) and the odd numbers are cool toned (pink) (7.5). awesome foundation, ladies with oily skin try this! i would say light-medium finish but i will try to build it up and update how the coverage is.

Oh no. What a cakey mess of a fdtn. And this is supposed to look "naked"? One thing, the colors are great, you will find a match, but who wants to? Even if I did have acne to cover, and this is med to full coverage, I would not be a luminous fdtn over it. How dumb is that? I'd go with something like ELDW or Teint Idole 24 hour. This is not sheer enough for good skin and too luminous for problem skin, you will stick out = and your acne/hyperpigmentation like a sore thumb. How over hyped.

This is hands down, without a doubt, no two ways about it, the best foundation I have ever used PERIOD. I have fairly oily skin, and with a little powder this looks very natural on me. Also, it matches my skin PERFECTLY. I have never experienced this with any other foundation I've used before, and I've used plenty. I wear 2.0 and have pretty fair skin. It looks great throughout the day. It's very expensive, but I don't wear foundation very often so I'm sure this bottle I've got will last me a while. I'll never use another foundation again!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Oily, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Black, Straight, Medium Eyes: Black
Reference: Oily, very warm/yellow NC25/30 skin. I matched 4.0 the best. 3.0 was very close but slightly too light.
There's not much that hasn't been said about this foundation. I love the pump packaging! I like applying this foundation to my face with my fingers because brushes made it look streaky and a sponge soaked up too much of the light formula. The formula is watery and doesn't look or feel like you have anything on! The finish is skin-like but more on the matte side, which was a pleasant surprise on my oily skin. You don't absolutely NEED to set it with a powder, but I do out of habit to make it last longer.
This foundation has surprisingly good coverage for something so watery, but I could only build it up to medium coverage. My acne scars still peeked through and I had to cover them up with concealer instead. I'd say this is a great foundation for people who have good skin to begin with and just want to even out skintone or combat redness. It won't do too much for serious scars or raised pimples.
Lasting power was SURPRISINGLY good for such a light foundation. I only had to blot about 7-8 hrs in. It still looked pretty good around 12 hrs in, although it faded slightly (it fades evenly so it doesn't look obvious or patchy). I wouldn't recommend taking this foundation hiking or anything, but it should get through an office or school day just fine.
Overall, this is a fantastic everyday foundation for combo/oily skin. Minor cons - It's a tad pricey for those on a budget, and I think you have to have realistic expectations for what it's capable of. It WILL look very skin-like, but it's not meant to last through harsh circumstances / bad weather and it won't cover every blemish. (NOTE: I think that the matte-like finish will make it drying on dry-skinned individuals.)

I've tried SO many foundations. High end, drugstore and everything in between. I have pretty good skin, but I do have issues with redness. This has become my HG foundation. It doesn't look cakey at all, and my giant pores disappear, especially when I press in a setting powder with a puff. In terms of color, I really feel like I got a great match with 3.0. UD also seemed to really listen to what people actually want when it comes to packaging. The product is a very thin liquid and I've found a little goes a long way, so you have to be careful how much you press on the pump.
The best thing about this foundation, by far, is the feel of it. It really is very light feeling and comfortable. You're not going to get heavy, or even solid medium coverage, but for anyone who doesn't need to do much more than even out redness, I would DEFINITELY recommend this. I haven't experienced any breakouts with it and it looks and feels more natural than any foundation I've ever tried. It's what all makeup should feel like!

I have been using this foundation since it released... which is rare since most foundations I have an issue with and end up exchanging or not using.
PROS: (for me at least)
- medium coverage, yet buildable.
- satin finish, not matte, not dewey... which is nice for the combo skin gal who can never make up her mind, like me!
- I never do touch ups, and this foundation lasts.
- looks great topped with a light powder
- applies even better with a primer, but not needed for a great application (I wear Revlon's)
- I personally like how thin it is. I cannot stand thicker foundations, they never set on my skin.
- Bottle is beautiful and a durable plastic. (im not a fan of glass)
- Shade range is pretty wide
- solid enough for summer, yet soft enough for winter.
- my first bottle's pump broke, and it was not pretty... second bottle is just fine. Might have been my mistake.
- If you do not moisturize your skin, this will not work for you. I find days I do not moisturize by accident, the oils from my face makes this foundation move A LOT
- Colors jump from one shade to too dark or too light.
- Yellow and Pink tones... not too much in the middle. I'm very yellow, but the neutral gal may have difficulties finding a shade.
This foundation is great for me, but it is easy for it to look wrong. Moisturize the skin well, use a buffing brush for application, and dust a light powder over. And you will acheive a really nice canvas :-) I am:
NC25 in winter = Shade 3.0
NC35ish in summer = Shade 4.0

After testing out this product for some time, I can safely say that I do not like this foundation. It has wonderful coverage yet still lets your skin show through, which is great. However, it gets very cakey on my skin no matter what tool I use to apply it. Also I find that it accentuates any flakes or dry patches you have, even if you don't even know they are there. Also, when I wore this under my eye area before concealer-- bad idea. It made my concealer application look patchy and just all around terrible. So I wouldn't exactly use the words natural, weightless, or invisible to describe this foundation.
The color match was ok, I found the .0 shades yellow enough for me but the shades go from kind of a big jump, for example 2.0 is too light for me in my current pale, winter state but 3.0 is too dark. The packaging is great, practical and sanitary.
I find that this foundation transfers like crazy as well! I occasionally wear glasses and this foundation will rub off all over this foundation! The oil control is alright, not spectacular but it is better than a lot of foundations. I would say that I last around 4 hours without getting shiny, which is pretty good for my skin.
I don't have sensitive skin, but this may or may not be breaking me out, it is hard to tell... Anyway, I will not be buying this again but I'm glad I gave it a go.

I love this product, the coverage is amazing while being exceptionally light in consistency. It feels like I'm not wearing anything on my skin at all. It has a demi matte finish, which works well with my combination/slightly oily skin. The only con is that it doesn't last very long, even with a primer. I'm talking about only lasting 4-5 hours. Otherwise it's perfect.
For reference I wear NC15 in Mac products, and am a shade 1 in this, which matches perfectly.

This foundation has been my holy grail. I have very severe acne scars and discoloration and I've been searching for the right foundation with perfect yet natural coverage and long wear. This is the match! Naked foundation will truly impress you in terms of photography and great coverage. Bonus points for the fact that there is a wide variety of shades so surely you'll find your perfect color. In all, I highly recommend this foundation...it's worth every dollar!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
I love this product! I must say, the color selection is a little odd. I feel like all of the colors have a yellow undertone to them, but I am pink toned and I ended up with 3.0 which doesn't look too yellow on me. It was weird, because I strangely could wear all the colors under 3.0 at the time. The only other flaw I have with this makeup is the packaging. I LOVE that it has a pump, which I have had no problem with. But the top comes off WAY too easily. I discovered that I cannot travel with this foundation at all because it ends up getting everywhere in my makeup bag. Anyways, I ended up loving it despite the flaws! It really is weightless, I usually forget I even have it on! It lasts awhile too, most of the day for me (oily skin). I create a really nice finish when I use my E.L.F. flat-top powder brush for application. Also, if you have MAC Studio Fix Powder, it goes perfect with this foundation, at least on me. I usually set my foundation with the powder, and they fit very well together. Also, the price for this foundation was a bit much for me, so ask for a sample to use before buying it. Overall, I would definitely buy the foundation again!
