Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder for spring 2015 is coming soon to a store near you!
This brand new foundation comes in a gunmetal compact with a purple flowery pouch to protect it. Inside you will find the powdery foundation, large mirror and an application sponge, which is dual-sided – use the cushion-y side to apply it and the flocked side for buffing and blending. It works both wet and dry and is long-lasting, weightless and buildable with a demi-matte coverage. The micro-milled powder has a slightly creamy feel to it and it helps blur unwanted fine lines, hide pores and even out skin tone. It comes in 14 shades from Fair Cool to Medium Light Warm to Deep Neutral.
When I first saw this foundation I’ll admit, I was like “ugh, another powder foundation that won’t work that great on me.” A lot of times I find that these either don’t have enough coverage or are way too powdery/chalky/matte looking. Then I tried it out!
Fair Cool is the lightest shade.
Fair Neutral is the second lightest shade.
Light Warm is the third lightest shade.
Light Warm wound up being my shade which made sense because Light Warm was a good shade for me with their new concealer as well.
When I first applied it dry to my face I wasn’t all that pleased with the look. It definitely evened out my skin and did a great job of hiding pores and making my skin look better, but it looked a little matte and powdery to me. The next day I decided to try it wet. MUCH better. I love the way it applies wet, it has such nice blendable coverage and when you add more, it doesn’t look cake-y.
I would definitely use this completely up and buy it when I run out because it’s a great coverage for me. I am not into complete coverage foundations, but I like more coverage than a than a tinted moisturizer offers. That’s why I wear a BB Cream about 95% of the time. This to me seems like a BB Cream but better because of the superior coverage. And I also love the fact that it’s a powder in a compact because somehow that makes it easier/less hassle than a liquid foundation. Also it’s easy to pop in your purse and take it with you. 🙂
Are you going to try this one out?
