You know those girls that are smart, pretty AND so nice that you can't hate them? Urban Decay is the cosmetic equivalent of one of those girls.

The cruelty-free brand has been around 1996 but they've only just now released their first liquid foundation, Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup($38). And of course, their first effort is nothing short of stellar. Everything seems to come so easy for them!

Joking aside, I'm really quite impressed: Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup is a wonderful foundation with good coverage and a beautiful finish that feels like you're not wearing any makeup at all. To top it all off, it's VEGAN.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup is available in 18 different colors. Shades that end in "0" are for warmed-tone skin and shades that end in ".5" are for cool-tones. I tried Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup in Shade 2.0, designed for fair skin with slight yellow undertones. It's a pale, golden beige color that's a touch too light for me (sad!).

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup in Shade 2.0 has a thin, liquidy consistency that spreads easily. A little bit goes a long way.

Once it sets, Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup feels virtually invisible on skin. This new product is a great option for people who don't typically enjoy wearing foundation, as Urban Decay Naked Skin is anything but cakey.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup has a gorgeous, matte yet luminous finish. The finish works to control oil, but it will also highlight dry patches on your skin. Be sure to moisturize!

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup gives medium coverage that leaves your skin looking like you, only better. Some blemishes and imperfections are likely to show through under one layer of foundation, particularly if you don't use primer. Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup has buildable coverage so you can layer for more of an airbrushed look. However, the thin liquid consistency makes it difficult to spot cover imperfections. You'll likely still want to use a concealer for blemishes.

Bottom Line:  I'm really impressed with the luminous, matte finish and light-as-air wear provided by Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup. This foundation is not the best option if you want full coverage, but Urban Decay Naked Skin is an ideal choice if you prefer a naturally beautiful, medium coverage look.

Have you tried Naked Skin? How do you think it compares to other medium-coverage foundations?

  1. 18 different colors! Now THAT'S impressive! I am wanting to try this out so bad. I'll have to get a sample from Sephora, soon. Your swatch is great, too. I can really tell the color & consistency from looking at the photo. It's more liquid like True Match makeup, but that makes it look more natural. Oh, and thumbs up for vegan products! I love some Urban Decay :)
