Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Foundation Review


Today I will be reviewing the Urban Decay Naked Skin Liquid Foundation that I have been using for a couple of months and now ready to give my opinion on this product..........

I purchased this foundation at Ulta and was debating between the liquid and powder version.  I decided to pick up the liquid foundation first to see if it would work for my skin type (oily, acne prone):

From Urban Decay:

"Coverage without compromise. Our weightless formula blurs imperfections for a flawless finish that feels invisible, but looks professionally retouched.

Whoever said 'you can't have the best of both worlds' never tried Naked Skin. Not only does our new light-as-air foundation give you the buildable coverage you desire – it also looks and feels like you're wearing absolutely nothing.

Naked Skin uses light-diffusing spheres to 'blur' imperfections for a luminous, demi-matte finish that feels invisible but looks professionally retouched. Naked Skin is oil-free, paraben-free, fragrance-free, and loaded with nourishing ingredients:

Matrixyl 3000-Anti-wrinkle and lifting peptides restore and maintain skin's youthful appearance while increasing elasticity.

Litchiderm (derived from lychee fruit) – Protects the skin from dehydration, oxidative stress and accelerated aging, resulting in a brighter, more radiant complexion.

Green Tea & Vitamin E – These anti-oxidants neutralize free-radicals and promote collagen production for smooth and supple skin.

Sodium Hyaluronate – Holds and attracts water for optimal hydration, circulation and nutrient absorption, making skin smooth, soft and youthful."

Aqua (Water/Eau), Cyclopentasiloxane, Butylene Glycol, Silica, Cyclohexasiloxane, Dimethicone, PEG/PPG-18/18 Dimethicone, Sodium Chloride, Camellia Oleifera Leaf Extract, Litchi Chinensis Pericarp Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Tribehenin, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Sodium Hyaluronate, Glycerin, Dimethicone/PEG-10/15 Crosspolymer, Dimethicone/Polyglycerin-3 Crosspolymer, Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearate, Polysorbate 20, Disodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Propylene Glycol, Carbomer, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Hexyl Laurate, Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol.

All shades may contain:
CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), CI 77491/77492/77499 (Iron Oxides).


The foundation comes in a 30ml/1fl oz pump bottle which makes it easy to control how much product I want to use.  I picked up the shade 8.0, which is still kind of light for my skin tone but 9.0 was a little dark and reddish for my skin tone:

This foundation is very lightweight which I see why it is called "Naked Skin".  When I applied the foundation, it went on very smooth and it's not heavy at all (it feels like I'm not wearing foundation at all).  This is not a full coverage foundation (I would say a light to medium coverage) but it is buildable and doesn't leave my face looking cakey.  I still have to use concealer to cover up my acne marks and dark spots but it does a great job with providing a even tone throughout my face.  It dries to a demi-matte (not a full matte but also not a dewy finish) which is okay with me because it makes my face look natural and not oily.  I also didn't experience any break outs or bad skin reactions from using this foundation.

Overall, I really like this foundation as a everyday type foundation.  It makes my face look natural (not dry or oily), long lasting, and light weight.  If you are the type that loves full coverage foundation, you may not like this one or will really have to build it up to a full coverage.  Another downfall with this product (if only you are going to use this with flash photography) is that it will leave a white case on your picture if you take a picture with flash.  I have used different primers and also different powders to try to off set this from happening but I still have the same results (sorry I didn't provide a picture showing this effect, but if you are my skin tone or darker, this may happen to you).  As long as you don't do any flash photography with this foundation, I would recommend this for a great lightweight or everyday foundation:

You can purchase the Urban Decay Naked Skin Liquid Foundation on their website, Ulta, Sephora, Tumblr, and Macy's for $39 - $40 dollars and it comes in 18 shades.
