Urban Decay wants to know how you spend your Summer Nights and they have some new products coming out just in time for balmy days and steamy nights.
First up is the new Naked Flushed Bronzer/Highlighter/Blush palette. It comes in three new trios including Streak (pale and peachy), Native (medium and pink) and Strip (deep and mauve). Also, the original one (now just called “Naked”) is still available.
These compacts include a full-size bronzer, a highlighter and a blush, as well as a mirror. They have a very soft, finely milled texture to them and a light finish.
Next up are two more new items. One is Naked Skin Beauty Balm in Illuminating and the other is Naked Skin Beauty Balm in Bronzing. Both have SPF 20.
Illuminating has champagne colored pearls which create a nice lit-from-within look to the skin.
Bronzing is a medium bronze shade that gives skin a warm glow. And guess what? It’s not too dark for my fair skin at all!
And finally last, but not least, is the new Naked Skin Body Beauty Balm.
This is just like the one for the face but now in a much larger tube (5 oz) for the body. It has a very lightweight sheer formula, and subtle shimmer. It also claims to tighten the skin and here’s the official word about that:
Like Naked Skin Beauty Balm, this revolutionary formula contains a long list of high-performance ingredients. Vitasource™ and dGlyage® firm skin, improve elasticity and fight wrinkles, while Pepha®-Protect (derived from watermelon extract) helps protect skin cells against daily stress. Antioxidant-rich green tea extract and soothing vitamin E soften and moisturize. And Matrixyl 3000 (a powerful anti-wrinkle peptide) improves elasticity for younger-looking skin.
Overall: I’m happy to have some new products for my skin this summer. I definitely tend to pay more attention to my skin rather than wearing lots of makeup in the summer and I think all of these are promising. I especially like the Naked Illuminating Beauty Balm and the Naked Bronzer Beauty Balm. I don’t often wear bronzer, but the fact that I can wear this one and not feel orange is great! I am wearing the Naked Body Beauty Balm on my legs right now and like the way it feels. It’s moisturizing, but not heavy or oily. The sheen it gives my skin is nice and subtle, not over the top.
Availability: Urban Decay, Sephora, Ulta (soon).
