Foundation Friday: Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation Review | EmmyWritesAbout

Its that time of the week again! Foundation Friday! Last week i reviewed the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation. This week i am doing another high end foundation the Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation which is one i haven’t seen hyped about much. Urban Decay is one of my favourite high end brands so i thought it was about time i tried the foundation. 

The packaging is simple, it comes in a plastic bottle which for high end you would expect glass rather than plastic. On the plus side it does come with a pump. After speaking to a few bloggers i had the impression that this foundation was buildable coverage leaving a flawless finish. I hate to say this but i just cannot get along with this foundation. The one thing about this foundation compared to any other i have tried is that it is super runny. I pumped a couple of pumps over my face and blended with my Real Techniques Sponge. The results looked awful, i found it didn’t look flawless and it clung to any dry patches.

I decided to try again using a buffer brush but the results were still the same. I tried to build this foundation but found it wasn’t that buildable so this is definitely a lighter coverage. I really wish this foundation would of worked for me as i had such high hopes. I left it a few days then decided to have one last go using a different primer and a different brush but it still didn’t look flawless on me at all. Its not often i get breakouts but when i do i don’t want a foundation to cling to them and this one did. 

Considering the Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation retails for £27.00 i won’t be buying again. I would recommend this foundation if you prefer a lighter coverage and don’t have super dry skin.
