Very impressive product

By Abigail

from Virginia

Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Naked Skin Beauty Balm:

This product has now become a staple in my makeup routine. After reading reviews, I purchased this product already prepared to simply use it as a primer not a BB cream. For the purpose of a BB cream, it is too light of coverage for me. For the purpose of a primer however, it is by far the best I have ever used (from low to medium to high end). It smooths out my skin tone, improves the look of my foundation and increases the durability of my makeup (I have stopped using setting spray because of this stuff). On top of that though, it has done wonders for my complexion. I have always had horrible dry skin and some slight rosacea since I've been young. When I wear this consistently, I notice a massive improvement in the way my skin looks and feels, with or without makeup on. I will definitely be repurchasing this product again and again.

Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Naked Skin Beauty Balm:

I have always struggled with finding good foundation with my skin type. I have very oily skin so it either runs off at the end of the day or clumps up. So this urban decay works really well because it sticks to you, that sounds really weird, but it adheres to your skin a lot better than other foundations I have tried. You do not need a lot to create an airbrushed look, which is nice to save some foundation and money.

I apply it with a BB brush in Dabbs rather than sweeps. I usually start at my cheeks and work around in a big circle towards my eye and jaw. Granted I already have the cover-up down before start applying the foundation. I do have to add a little extra on my nose because of redness but it's still covers that up really well with a small amount of liquid.

        I ended up giving this to my daughter. At my age, I was looking for something with a little more coverage. I have dark spots from years of unhealthy tanning. I've been a huge fan of Urban Decay in other products, but this one wasn't for me.

          I use this daily! It feels great going on...like my own skin. I have clear skin so coverage isn't something I needed in this product. I've been using it for 3 weeks and I have the type of skin that starts off normal but gets oily as the day goes on. But with this product my skin looks the same at 5 pm as it did at 8 am!! Freakin awesome!

          This product is very light weight. It doesn't add a lot of coverage but it does even out skin tone. I add a little bit of powder foundation over it and it gives me a flawless look. It is great for quick application or when I don't feel like wearing a lot of make up

            This is my first BB cream and I love it so much! It was between this one and the one from Bare Minerals but the one from BM had silicone it in and it blocks your pores and I didn't want that out of a BB cream so I went Naked =0) literally. Best decision ever because when I am having my lazy days I put this on my face and still feel beautiful….and isn't that the point?

                A:

                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).
