Hey there ma blogging peeps!
So about a week ago I did a little Instagram poll giving you guys two options of review posts you’d like to see. If you haven’t guessed it yet by the tittle this foundation won by a mile. So that’s what I am sharing with you guys today! I actually was surprised to realize I hadn’t put this review up much earlier as I’ve had it for quite a while.
So if you guys want to hear my thoughts on the Urban decay naked skin foundation – keep reading!
What are the claims of this foundation?: It claims to feel ‘weightless’ and that it will have ‘ultra-definition’. It also claims to be infused with peptides, that it is paraben free and light diffusing.
Does it deliver on its claims?: Its watery formula definitely does give a weightless feel to it and it does give a satin/glowy finish to the skin. I don’t know if it is infused with peptides but it incredible hydrating, blendable and sits on the skin really well. It’s quite odd that on the bottle it doesn’t boast about its coverage level. The easily buildable full coverage with its lightweight watery formula is definitely what makes this foundation unusual and awesome.
Coverage: You can easily achieve full coverage with this foundation.
Skin types appropriate for this foundation: I feel like this foundation is more appropriate for normal to dry/dehydrated skin types. I can’t make any comments on how it would work for oiler skin types but I will say that’s hydrating and watery so I don’t know how it would work with oily skin.
Longevity: With my skin type which is dry/dehydrated with some oiliness on the t-zone it lasts pretty good. Of course I use primer; I set it with powder and depending on how long my day is I also use the urban decay setting spray. But without the spray it still lasts well.
Finish: It’s more of a satin / dewy ish finish. If you set it with powder it’s less dewy thought but still provides a satin like finish.
Application: Being that I’m not a sponge applicator kind of gal I use a flat top kabuki to apply this foundation. You have to make sure no brush strokes are left behind when applying it, it’s very thin formula can cause that. You could use a sponge because of its formula but I personally use foundation brushes. Using flat paint brush like foundation brushes may not work well as the formula is very watery.
Packaging: Standard packaging with a pump. You will need to give it a good shake before pushing the product out.
Formula: The formula is very hydrating and thin (water like) in consistency. It’s so thin it could work with a drop like applicator but it does have a pump applicator instead.
Pros: It’s hydrating, an awesome shade range, comes with a pump, insanely good coverage considering it’s thin formula, not cakey, easy to blend and it gives your skin a nice glow.
Cons: It’s not affordable, it doesn’t have a matte finish, some people may not like the watery formula, it isn’t targeted at oiler skin types, for some people it may have too much coverage for them.
Shade range: There are over 18 shades available.
Price: $65.00 AUD
Availability: Mecca Maxima
Rating: 8.5 / 10
Overall thoughts: This is an awesome foundation! It’s practically full coverage but still hydrating and thin in formula. It looks great on and isn’t too difficult to apply. It also lasts a good amount of time on the skin.
Would I repurchase this?: Yes I would. I always say that I am willing to go high end with foundation if it’s close to or is full coverage.
That wraps up today’s post. Have you guys tried this foundation? What do you guys think of watery based foundations? Tell me in the comments. I hope you all have a wonderful day and I’ll see you guys in the next post.
