      Did not really cover anything, or as used as a primer did not help to make my foundation stay on longer.

        Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Naked Skin Beauty Balm:

        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.

          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).

                This goes on really smoothly and looks great! I can just apply it like lotion so it's quick and easy. I've had trouble lately with foundations settling into lines on my face and making my skin look drier than it is. I don't have any of those problems with this product, and if I use foundation over it my skin still looks great. The pigment is also just right for my (pale) skin. My only complaint is that it doesn't offer much coverage. I use the Naked Beauty Balm most days, but if I have a fancy event I will still go for a separate primer and foundation since that covers more flaws.

                  I'm a black woman in my mid 40's(brown complexion) and in the past year noticed a change in my skin. Alot of products, even my everyday skin care was causing irritation and small bumps and pimples.I was layering products and my face was still dry looking. I decided to try Naked BB cream (Naked Dark). I still put moisturizer on first (because my skin was so dry), allow it to dry then apply BB cream. Oh what a difference! Not only was my face not irritated but the small bumps went away and the color is a pretty good match. I am happy with this product and will be purchasing it again.The only reason it did not get 5 kisses is because it gives you a matte look and I prefer a dewy more moisturized look.

                      I love Urban Decay Naked Foundation, but was disappointed with the BB cream. At first it goes on really dark, and then blends away to pretty much no coverage. I know it's just a BB cream, but I would expect some coverage. The drugstore brand I normally use hides the redness and dark spots better at half the price.

                        Love that this product covers few bases at the same time...I use it as a moisturizer, primer, and sunscreen combined...also, great if you want light tint to your moisturizer...
                        feels, just a little shiney on my skin, but usually i cover with a powder foundation, and perfect!
