Makeup Review: Naked Skin by Urban Decay

I recently went to Sephora because my skin was driving me crazy.  I’m very pale, so any sort of blemish or mark will leave a scar on me.  Plus that leads to undereye circles as well.  Not a good look.

I learned two things on this shopping trip:

1. This was the most I have ever spent on makeup–yes, I spent about $200 on all this.  Yikes!  But…

2. You get what you pay for.

This stuff blows anything from the drugstore I’ve ever tried out of the water, full stop.

I bought:

Complexion Primer Potion

which I apply by squeezing a line onto the back of my hand (about an inch in length) and using my kabuki brush to apply a thin layer all over.

Then I add a pump of

Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup

to the back of my hand and apply the same way as the primer above. I’m a 2.0 shade, I think it’s best to go and have one of the clerks help pick out the right shade, rather than try to figure it out on the computer.

I bought two of these:

24/7 Concealer Pencil

One in a shade to match my skin, to cover any sun spots, red marks, or anything else I’m getting in my “old age” of 32.  One is also in a slightly darker shade and that is to cover right under my eyes.  I rub the pencil on the tip of my finger and then apply using my fingertip wherever needed.

Then I set it all with:

Ultra Definition Pressed Finishing Powder

This really finishes it all off and is an important step.   Again, I use the kabuki brush.  And finally, I add a bit of color with:

Naked Flushed

You swipe your brush either left to right or right to left across the palette, depending on if you want more of a bronzed look or a blush look.

And I set it all with a few sprays of:

Chill Makeup Setting Spray

This makeup stays on just fine all day and will cover even the darkest discoloration or scarring.  I have seen photos of myself since I bought this makeup and it truly has transformed my skin into something that looks flawless.

Can’t recommend this stuff enough!  Truly worth every cent.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this! High end makeup can definitely be worth it sometimes, especially for the products you mentioned above.

  2. I get scars like nobody’s business and just spent a bunch of green on a good foundation, concealer, primer at sephora. I totally agree that it hurts while you are shelling out the big bucks but the results are so worth it 😉 😀 A photo of you after your make up routine would be an awesome addition to this post!

  3. My BF actually took a great one of me on our vacation that really shows how well this makeup covers, I am going to add it when he emails it to me–it’s on his iPad, not one of my cameras!

  4. I agree, high end make-up is so worth the price you pay. Especially when it comes to foundations. I feel like they look more natural and cover better. Also, it’s easy to find your perfect shade. 🙂 I’ve been wanting to check out the Flushed palette.
