Naked Skin

Urban Decay have added  new products to their popular Naked Skin BB line in the form of two new mixing Naked Skin Beauty Balms. One is illuminating and the other is bronzing. The Naked Skin Beauty Balms give a soft focus blurred finish on the skin, make the pores look smaller and even out the skintone. They have a gel like texture which applies easily and gives a dewy natural finish. Neither are particularly shimmery or sparkly, just sort of "lit from within".  Very pretty and glowing. I found that the coverage wasnt quite there (It's worth noting they are designed to be mixed with the Naked Skin BB Creams or your foundations) but they do even the skin out. Think of them like a primer before adding your summer base pick. I've worn the bronzing base above mixed with a little Nars Sheer Glow a few dabs of concealer and some powder. Great mixers to create a lovely summery base.

  4. These sound gorgeous but I have oily skin as it is and always worry about making my skin look even shinier! Might be worth a try though :)

  14. I really wish US brands would stop slapping "BB cream" or "beauty balms" on things when it's obvious they don't know what it really is. They're just not supposed to be primer-like sheer.
