    Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Naked Skin Beauty Balm:

    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!

    Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Naked Skin Beauty Balm:

    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?

        Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Naked Skin Beauty Balm:

        I finally decided to give this a try now that they have a "Light" version (I'm pretty fair, blond, hazel eyes, neutral undertones). As other reviewers have said, it doesn't have much tint and it doesn't really cover the way most BBs/CCs do - but that's exactly why I love it! I have always had a very difficult time matching my skin tone. Most BBs/CCs/foundations for light skin end up looking either too yellow, or too gray on my face, and products that promise "glow" just make me look unnaturally sparkly.
        Now, I DON'T have perfect skin. I have some sun damage on my cheeks, discoloration along my jawline from past acne and some visible pores around my nose. But I put this stuff on and my skin instantly looks better! You can't even tell I'm wearing anything, no obvious color or foundation lines, just better! And it feels better too! Smooth and soft and just enough hydration, plus significant SPF factor. Even at the end of the day it just feels like skin, not like I have product on my face. I finish this off with some mineral powder.
        I'm not going for the flawless airbrushed look, because trying to do that ends up looking masky and fake on me. I don't want to look fake, I just want to look better!

        Used this under my mineral makeup. Coverage was a lot more sheer than I expected. Obviously, the smell is a major distraction. Not Urban Decay' s best. Definitely will not purchase again.

              I went into ulta looking for a foundation, the sales associate's face was beautiful I asked what she had on it and she showed me this and the powder. I tried it out and loved the way it was applied on my skin. However when I got home to use it the following day I didn't get the coverage I was looking for. I do have oily skin but I made sure I applied a primer and set it with a powder. I would only suggest this product to somebody who has "flawless" "good skin" because this doesn't cover up anything.

                Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Naked Skin Beauty Balm:

                I finally gave in & bought this based on all the rave reviews.

                The good: Easy way to get SPF 20 without getting a greasy mess. Light moisture, not too heavy, doesn't leave a shiny oil slick.

                The bad: It doesn't work well with certain skincare products...over certain things it gets all clumpy & weird. With others, it works fine.

                As for all the blurring & perfecting claims...I've been using it for weeks now, and even after VERY generous applications, I can't tell a difference in anything. I've never had a BB-type product with as little noticable result. If you've already got flawless skin, this is probably a great product to keep your skin in good shape, but for me, I need more from a product (especially at this price).

                    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.
