Hello My Lovelies,
Hope your all well :) so todays post is a kind of triple review of some of my favorite face products of the moment. The Urban Decay Naked Foundation, Naked BB Cream and Optical Blurring Brush. As long as my complexion looks good i feel more confident and this product really does help do just that. I love using them together for the perfect 'Hollywood' natural looking flawless complexion.
Naked BB Cream - Universal Shade
I havent tried many BB Creams but as soon as i heard Urban Decay were releasing one i had to know more about it :D The Urban Decay Naked BB Cream is not your typical Beauty balm, it has a multitasking formula perfect to use on its own, or my personal favorite use as a primer underneath your foundation. Urban Decay say that 'It's light weight, velvety, oil free formula will make your skin feel and look better within 8 weeks' and i really believe this is true, after using the product for over a week now i have seen a definite improvement in my skin.
It doesn't give a lot of coverage on the skin by itself, it comes out a peachy orange shade but them blends into your skin tone to look 'Naked' on the skin and very sheer. It does aid with evening out your skin tones, minimising your pores, disguises fine lines and illiminates redness. It has an extrmely fresh scent which i personally love, it also feels extremely smooth and light weight, as if i'm not wearing anthing at all.
Naked Foundation - Shades #4 and #5.5
This foundation is truly amazing, it comes in a wide range of different shades and different tones to suit all skin types. The full number shades have warm undertones whilst the .5 shades have neutral and cool undertones.
I absolutely adore the packaging, it looks very luxurious and i love that it has a handy pump for easy usage, one pump gives you just the right amount of product for your entire face. It's a traditional liquid consistency and can be applied using your fingers or a brush. Like i said, one pump gives you a medium coverage, however it is very buildable, depending on how my skin is i prefer two layers if i'm going somewhere when i need my foundation to look more flawless and last that little bit longer.
The finish is not matte nor dewey but exactly what it says on the bottle 'naked', it looks as if your not wearing anything at all, it's extremely light weight and natural. When i use this over the BB Cream i find i do not need to re-apply throughout the day, my skin looks flawless for hours which is exactly what i want from a foundation. Its great for all skin types and age groups, my mum also picked up a shade for herself and is absolutely loving it. The formula also contains Matrixyl 3000 which is a powerful anti-wrinkle peptide, protective and brightening litchiderm, antioxidant green tea and vitamins which nourishes and protects your skin.
You are definitely getting your money's worth with this foundation as the design of the bottle alows you to use up every last drop. The clear packaging is also handy so you know how much you have left and when you need to pick up another on ;)
Overall, i'm really loving this foundation, i'm enjoying using it everyday and layered up a little more when i'm off out for the day or night. If your not sure about the foundation, head on over to your local counter and they will match you up and give you a demo of this little beauty :)
Urban Decay - Optical Blurring Brush
Urban Decay also launched a new brush to apply their new Naked Foundation, their 'Optical Blurring Brush'. It's extremely soft, quite dense, rounded and has synthetic bristles so it's perfect for all types of formulations. I have been using this when applying the BB Cream and Foundation and i love the finish it gives to my skin. I've also been loving applying the 'Flushed Palette' with this brush, it pickes up just the right amount of product.
I would love to know what you all think? Have you tried any of these products?
Hope you enjoyed this post, if you have any questions or requests please do not hesitate to contact me via Twitter or leave a comment below, i love hearing from you all.
Lots Of Love
