MAKEUPALLEY REVIEW: Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup

WHAT IS IT?
"Feels like wearing nothing, yet Urban Decay's Naked Skin transforms your complexion. Skin looks natural, illuminated and bright with a luminous demi-matte finish: like the beautiful skin you were born with. This remarkable foundation is oil-free, paraben free and formulated with light-diffusing spheres that literally make you look professionally retouched. How does it work? Naked Skin uses optical blurring technology to blur your imperfections, making it the ultimate in ultra definition."

CLAIMS/FEATURES

  • List of nourishing ingredients including: Matrixyl 3000 (a powerful anti-wrinkle peptide), protective and brightening Litchiderm, antioxidant Green Tea and Sodium Hyaluronate for optimal skin hydration and nutrient absorption.
  • Buildable coverage allows women to customize their look and makeup preference: from light to full coverage.
  • A sleek, hygienic pump, that allows more control and less waste of product. 
  • Available in a meticulously calibrated range of shades, Urban Decay's precise shade numbering system makes it easy to find your perfect shade.

THINGS TO RAVE ABOUT
  • Quality Packaging: "This product is packaged beautifully and oh-so-sensibly; the bottle feels very sturdy, like something you could take with you in your purse if you wanted to. It has a built-in pump which is very hygienic and also great for avoiding waste. The only thing is that you do have to remember to shake the bottle first, which is a little different if you're not used to it." by SophieH
  • Stays Put: "I've had it on all day now - outside in the 90+ degree weather with a bit of humidity so I did sweat a little. My foundation did not budge. My redness/blemishes are not showing through." by lingysnowbunnie
  • Concealing: "I have major redness issues - broken capillaries on my cheeks that are so hard to cover up without looking like I caked on foundation. One coat of Naked on my face made everything so smooth and perfect and my skin has never looked this good. A little extra dab on my cheeks and you would never know I had that redness issue." by embeast
  • Innovative Texture: "The texture of this is really strange in a good way. It is very fluid-y and spreads more easily than any other foundation ever. Once it's on your skin, you cannot feel it at all." by sizza911
  • Dewy, not Oily Finish: "I have extremely oily skin, and have to blot and/or put powder on several times a day with any other foundation. This one creates a nice "glow" and "sheen" however, doesn't make me look oily at all. It literally lasts throughout my 10 hour work day." by BeautyDreams717
  • Great Color Range: "I like the wide range of shades, plus the fact that the numbering system breaks it down into warm and cool shades." by snowshoe73
  • SPF Free: "I love the fact that it is fragrance and SPF free, since I have sensitive skin and prefer to use my own SPF products." by candystripelegs

THINGS TO RANT ABOUT
  • Settles into Pores: "It fills my pores, not in a good way! When I looked in the mirror, it looked like my face was dotted because of the makeup settling into each and every pore. I don't have huge pores at all, but this emphasized them. As the day went on, my face started to look cracked where it was settling into fine lines! I'm only 28, it's not like I have tons of lines!" by wildcatcutie
  • Pink Undertones: "Every UD Naked foundation had a pink undertone no matter how golden or yellow it claims to be! It looked ridiculous on my face! I don't like the fact that my face looks different than my neck!" by HRenfrewgl

IS IT FOR YOU?
YES: if you want your "fine lines diffused, redness gone, and everything to just kind of glow." by beachbeauty123

NO:"if you have combination or oily skin since I found it to have no oil control at all (and it does say luminious/demi-matte so at least they aren't claiming to control oil)." by mdickson

  2. I have been trying it today, and I must admit I was far from "Wowed". I did think it was nice at first, but as you mentioned it soon slipped off my face!.

  3. I got this as a gift and while its an ok foundation something in my moisturizer made it turn orange! *and it is the right color for me because I used it the other day without moisturizer and I wasn't wearing any other makeup today besides those two things*

  4. I use the MAC BB cream as a primer because I am so oily and this seems to be the only thing I can find that can control it. I put the Naked foundation over it and within the hour I have cracks around my mouth and it is slipping off my nose and settling in pores. It looks good at first but for a foundation costing 50.00 it isn't worth it!

    and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I stumbled across this during my search for something relating to this.
