    Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Naked Skin Beauty Balm:

    I use this after I apply my moisturizer. I don't usually wear liquid foundation, so I was a little skeptical at first. It's lightweight and blends in well. It looks very natural. Love it!

      Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Naked Skin Beauty Balm:

      I was looking for an everyday product and don't need full coverage, heavy foundation. This looks kind of "glowy" on me and blends well. I'll be sticking with this one for a while.

                Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Naked Skin Beauty Balm:

                I wasn't a fan of this. I wanted something that gave a bit more coverage. When I used this BB cream I couldn't even tell it was on my face. I didn't feel any difference either. I prefer the Smashbox one as I can use that (also spf) and just some finishing powder in the summer when I don't want the full make-up.

                  By Amanda

                  from Atlanta

                  Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Naked Skin Beauty Balm:

                  I was looking for good summer option to replace some heavier foundations (ie my favorite Naked Skin liquid makeup in 4.5) and thought a light coverage, tinted moisturizer would do the trick. Sadly, the "tint" seems to be missing from this beauty balm and it's not doing much for my skin. It went on smoothly but disappeared into my skin rather than providing any coverage. I hate returning products but this one has to go back :-/

                      How does this work for reducing the look of pores? I have been using Benefit's primer for years and am considering switching to this as I use Urban Decay foundation.

                        Naked Skin Beauty Balm features a silicone-based formula with a silky texture that helps to minimize the look of enlarged pores and to smooth skin texture.

                        A:

                        That is correct. ULTA Beauty will no longer be offering the shades Naked Light and Naked Dark. Naked Medium (Item #:2256112) remains a permanent part of our offering. Because this product applies rather sheerly, Naked Medium may be a suitable match for your complexion. We suggest testing this shade at your nearest ULTA Beauty store:

                        Naked Skin Beauty Balm provides sheer tinted coverage, so you may wish to use it in place of your tinted moisturizer. You can certainly layer tinted moisturizer over or under Naked Skin BB, if you prefer.

My make up stays put for the most part it does seperate a little by the end of the day. . But I want to find a bb cream or primer that will work with these products and keep my make up in place. I also have acne prone, sensitive combination skin. I am very fair skinned.. Will this product work for me?

                        A:

                        This product is ideal for fair skin, since it is not heavily tinted and is instead formulated with light diffusing spheres to minimize imperfections. Its oil-free, non-irritating formula is safe to use on sensitive, acne-prone skin. This product can be used alone on bare or moisturized skin or as a primer for smooth and lasting makeup application and would work well with your current regimen. The order of product application would be: moisturizer, Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm, pore refiner (onto problem areas), foundation.
