Urban Decay recently launched their new Naked Skin foundation, an extension of their famous Naked palettes. I got a sneak peek of this awesome foundation at IMATS 2012, which I posted about here. It is the best foundation I have ever tried! I like how easy their shading system is. For those with warm and yellow undertones, like I do, the shades end with a .0, and those with pink cool undertones, the shades end with a .5.
The packaging is really nice. It’s a nice plastic bottle (it’d be nice if it was glass, but then it’d be more expensive!) with a metallic top. The bottle also has some sort of mixing ball inside so the pigments stay nice and mixed. I’ve never seen a foundation do that, so that is a good feature!
Here is a swatch of the foundation. It’s a nice liquid formulation that emulates the skin pretty well I’d say!
It provides a medium coverage, and is build-able if you use a little bit more. For example, I use 1 pump for light to medium coverage and 2 pumps for high coverage.
I just recently posted a foundation routine video using this foundation, and I think it looks amazing! What do you think? I’d definitely recommend you to try this foundation- get a sample at your Sephora! This foundation retails for $38 for 1 oz, which was less expensive than my old foundation, so I’m satisfied. I’m looking at eventually picking up their optical blurring brush that launched with this foundation also, because it looks really nice!
What foundation do you use?
