I have this Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup in the color #1.0
Although I love the brand, I won’t ever repurchase this very foundation. However, I can still recommend it but only to the ones who don’t have any skin blemishes and need the lightest coverage for a more smooth complexion.
Of course, the packaging looks out of this world.
It’s such a beautiful bottle of thick plastic with a silver cap and bottom.
The bottle provides us with some necessary info.
There isn’t much inside, 30 ml only, however, I have to say that the product goes a long way, due to that texture, which is easy to apply and distribute over the skin. One pump is always enough.
My bottle is said to be made in Canada, even though not all the products from the brand are made there. For instance, I have a primer from the brand, which was made in Italy.
The product comes out through a nozzle pump.
Right here I say that all this metallic surface under the pump will be inevitably stained with the foundation and lose its trade dress quickly. On the other hand, I’ve never met a foundation with a nozzle which wouldn’t stain the bottle, so I don’t count it as a con.
All in all, the line-up offers 20 shades to choose from. My color is fair, though still not the fairest one. There’s such, which is #0.5.
About the texture: it’s runny, really runny. I mean it.
Look, this is the amount that usually comes out with one pump press. As I’ve already mentioned, one pump press is enough for one use.
I didn’t have enough time to take a picture of the product, because it started to flow down my hand.
Here you can see, when I turned my hand the tiniest bit, the drop started to travel down.
Here I blended it out a little to show you the sheerness of the formula. Even if you can see the glossy finish here, neglect it. The product is very far from having a dewy finish.

And the most important thing now - the performance:
I’ll start off with saying that my skin is oily and blemish-prone. Besides, I have enlarged pores.
However, a couple of months ago, I faced some other skin woes which were flaking and dryness. In general, I don’t usually blame any of my foundation for this or that woe or for showing off my skin blemishes. But I want to blame this one because it does everything that I’m terrified of. This Naked Skin foundation not only simply shows off my skin woes, but it also applies in patches and splotches. I can’t tame it even with primers or moisture afterwards.
I can’t blend it out well. And yeah, don’t even try to set it with powder, it’ll make the product look worse. All in all, I had to put it aside to make my skin calm down a little.
By the way, I’ve tried all the possible ways to apply it: I used to layer it with thin coats, I used to use a beautyblender, my fingertips and all that would never affect the results.
Now my skin is in its normal (usual) condition and this foundation performs more or less good over it. But! It settles in my pores on the sides of my nose and I have to work on it for so long. The foundation is quick to set and I always have to be so quick, working with it. And one more thing. I still think that its finish is too dead matte. I don’t like it.
In all the other respects, if we forget about all that mumbo-jumbo, the product is easy to spread and blend out. It holds on well and doesn’t almost stain my phone and clothes. No traveling down or anything.
The coverage is medium and be ready that it won’t conceal serious blemishes, only those minor ones. I will have to use it up but I won’t ever repurchase or recommend it to anyone.
After all, there are so many negative things said exactly about the Urban Decay foundations on the internet, I gave up on experimenting with them.
results with the foundation
You can see in the pictures that the final result looks more or less satisfactory. The product applies smoothly and in general, my complexion looks good. Well, it still looks too flat, that’s why I rely on contouring.
And this is the final look:
Thanks for your attention!
