    Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Naked Skin Beauty Balm:

    We live in Arizona where it is very warm most of the time. So I love this as an everyday natural look for my face. It is very light weight and adds a nice smooth look with just a hint of color to my face. I just add blush and lip stick and I'm on my way.

    just what I was looking for

    By Lady A

    from Pasadena, TX

    Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Naked Skin Beauty Balm:

    before I left on my cruise I was looking for a product that was meant for light coverage and didn't feel cakey. the sales associate showed me this product and applied it on my face and I loved it!! it's very light and looks extremely natural. I have faith skin with warm undertones and it matched great!! worked well with the humidity in the Caribbean. I got so many compliments as to how naturally pretty my skin was when really I had this on. definitely buying this again!!

          Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Naked Skin Beauty Balm:

          I used this product for 4-5 weeks and loved it at first. You have to use a lot, but once it's on it's smooth and layers great under tinted moisturizer or foundation. It did minimize the appearance of lines, which was exactly what I wanted, but after the 2nd or 3rd week I started breaking out on my forehead - something I haven't done in years! I stopped using it there and continued on my nose, cheeks, and chin - until it happened there too. Ulta was very good about returning it- the manager told me she breaks out with it too, and has heard it from several others as well. So disappointing because I really liked how it worked.

          Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Naked Skin Beauty Balm:

          I went to Ulta looking for something a little more high end than the L'Oreal BB cream I usually use. One of the consultants suggested this and picked out a color for me. I tried it on my face at home and it was awful. I only used a few drops and plan on returning immediately. There was no coverage at all. The only difference I noticed was that it actually made my skin more oily and greasy. I noticed my skin was red and irritated after taking it off. In my opinion there was no color deposit. I didn't see any tint at all or any improvement in my skin. I may either try the IT cosmetics version or just stick with ol' faithful (L'Oreal). Don't buy this unless you have dry skin and are really just looking for a moisturizer and no coverage at all.

          Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Naked Skin Beauty Balm:

          Even in light this product comes out relatively dark, I cannot use it in the winter because it darkens my skin. However, it does leave my skin super smooth and soft, which makes putting makeup on a breeze! I will only ever purchase this in the smallest size, there are definitely some better primers out there.

              Not a BB cream..

              Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Naked Skin Beauty Balm:

              this has 0 coverage, isnt very moisturizing and runny. i realize this is geared to be a primer, but i think Urban Decay jumped on the BB band wagon too soon with this. ive used better primers, so this isnt anything special.

                  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.

                  The dark tint works well for those who use Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation in shades 6.0-12.0 (medium-to-dark complexions).
