Recently, I had been feeling kind of bored with my foundation stash and decided to pick up the Naked Skin Foundation by Urban Decay about 2 weeks ago. I know that this isn't a new product on the market but I hadn't heard that much buzz about it and decided to give it a shot. The idea behind the foundation is that it is supposed to have a weightless feel and is if it is a second skin.
The foundation currently comes in 18 shades and are made to pink- or yellow-toned. The shades ending in a .5 are pink-toned, and those ending in a .0 are yellow-toned foundations. I used the Sephora Foundation IQ matrix online based on a previous foundation matched in store, and I would say that the match is pretty good, except maybe that its a little too yellow.
The foundation is really light-weight and because of it needs to be shaken really well before use. Besides the beautiful acryclic packaging, it also has a very sturdy pump. I would say it is about a mid-range price for a high-end foundation, coming in at $45.00 CAD.
So far, I absolutely love this foundation. It feels like I am not wearing a base product at all. I don't find that it emphasizes any pores, however, if you do have dry patches, it will cling to them. I would say that this foundation has medium to build-able coverage, and since it is such a lightweight consistency you would have to really pile it on in order to make it look cakey on the skin.
I see myself wearing this foundation a lot throughout the colder months, but I am not sure how well it would hold up on a hot summer's day on my oily skin. My skin does get shiny by the end of the day, but a simple powder touch-up does the trick.
