Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm

Hi guys! So sorry for the absence. Life events has been overwhelming lately and it has left me down and it has been so hard to pick up and move on. I decided at some point I need to keep up starting today. So having said that, today I have Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Beauty Balm.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm

What I like about it…

  • the color scheme used is my all time favorite – neutral browns
  • the shape of the bottle is ergonomic as it can lie flat without rolling perfect for travelling
  • hydrating
  • consistency makes it easy to apply and spread
  • lightweight
  • has SPF
  • function as a primer

What I don’t like about it…

  • it does not even out and minimize my pores
  • it’s very sheer

I wish that the SPF is higher and coverage is better.

I can’t comment on its claim “treats to firm skin, improve elasticity and provide measurable anti-aging result“. My skin’s condition is not there yet and my problem really is hyperpigmentation and hormonal acne.

Final Thoughts: This is a very sheer consistency and as you can tell on the swatch below it disappears on my skin. It has its good points though. It is hydrating, lightweight and has SPF. I now use this as a primer and as a moisturizer.

I was excited to try out how Urban Decay’s new formulation on their eyeshadows pan out. So I tried it out…

What do you think?

Products Used:

  • CHANEL VITALUMIERE AQUA FRESH & HYDRATING CREAM COMPACT MAKEUP SPF15 in 40 Beige
  • Urban Decay Eyeshadows in Roach (all over the lid), Busted (on outer v and crease), Buck (to blend out Busted) and Walk of Shame on brow bone.
  • MAC Fluidline in Dip Down
  • Guerlain Noir G de Guerlain Mascara
  • NARS Blush in Deep Throat
  • Guerlain Rouge Automatique in 104 Jicky
I know some of the shadows are in the Naked or Naked 2 Palette but I was curious about the new formula. This new formulation is a dream to apply. It was velvety, perfect for everyday use. I’m glad I gave in. Who knows, I might go back to get colors that are not in either of the Naked Palettes.
Thanks for dropping by!
