Urban Decay Naked Skin Review

It feels like forever since I talked about a foundation on Dream in Lace, and that’s probably because HOLY COW it has been! A month or so ago I picked up the Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation on a whim. It was one of those long days that turned even longer with heavy traffic, so I made a pit-stop at Ulta and walked out with a new face. Oddly, I’ve never considered a foundation at Ulta before – and definitely not one from Urban Decay. But when I tickled down what I was looking for to a light, everyday foundation – I immediately thought: Naked!

I got color matched by a store clerk, and strolled around for a while before making a decision. Boy am I glad I did, as this bad boy seriously oxidized on me a shade darker. Similar to the L’Oreal Magic Nude foundation, Urban Decay’s Naked Foundation settles with a powder finish, and in that liquid-to-powder transition it darkened. Just something to keep in mind while color matching yourself.

I figure for a concise, full review – I’ll break this down into categories. Hitting on the key points for any foundation: coverage, texture, finish, color, longevity…oh, and I suppose price is important. Here we go!
