Urban Decay Naked Skin Review

Tested on animals: No
Price: $39

This foundation is amazing. I love the coverage it gives but at the same time, it feels like I am not wearing any foundation. Just like the name, my skin feels NAKED, or pretty close.
It weightless element to this foundation is most likely because of the liquid texture. When you first pump it out, it is on the watery side. But not to fret, it is so easy to blend. On the box, one of it's features is it has a demi-matte finish. I never knew what a demi- matte finish is, but I soon learned that I like it. The best way to describe this finish is that it dries on the powdery side rather than being dewy and it gives your face a very natural look. Almost like it is part of your skin.

Personally, my skin type is a combination of oily and dry. My t-zone is a bit oily but my cheeks are normal with some dry patches? This foundation makes my skin tone even and smooth. It does a great job with hiding small blemishes. However, if you have a very dark birth mark, you will need more product and concealer.

Luckily for me, my birth mark can be covered by my hair, but it gets really annoying when I want to put up my hair, but then I have to leave my bangs down. I have grown to accept it, but sometimes I wish it wasn't there. haha

Anyways, back to the foundation: the product has a bit of a smell when you first pump it out, almost like a faint rubbing alcohol smell. But after blending, the smell is completely gone. This foundation is great for long-wear, you can wear it for a full eight to ten hours. But with any face product, there will be a bit of transfer if you like to touch your face. If you are prone to touching your face, like I am, you will need to touch up with a pressed powder or so around the 4-5 hour mark.

Would I re-buy? Yes! I am on my second bottle.

Hope this review helps you decide if this product is right for you or not!
