Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm Broad Spectrum SPF 20

What it is:A five-in-one beauty balm that minimizes the appearance of pores, lines, wrinkles, and redness instantly for skin that looks firmer in eight weeks. What it is formulated to do:- Multitasking antiaging formula to produce a beautiful, radiant complexion - Features SPF 20 sun protection - Comes in one universal shade Blur flaws in seconds and get serious antiaging benefits in as little as eight weeks. This lightweight, velvety, oil-free miracle works instantly and over the long term. Naked Skin Beauty Balm is invisible on your skin (zero rub-off): the universal shade glides on and dries down to a translucent, flawless finish that works on most skintones. While many beauty balms are tinted to provide coverage, Naked Skin diffuses light with high-tech pigments to give you amazing, natural, naked-looking skin that keeps getting better every week. Unlike a lot of beauty balms, Naked Skin delivers measurable antiaging benefits—and the claims to prove it. What else you need to know:Beauty Balms or BB Creams were originally developed as a perfect post-procedure cream used to treat, hydrate, prime, protect, and camouflage the skin. Great for all skin types including those with sensitive skin, these versatile “five-in-one” formulas are designed to do it all: treat with high levels of active skincare ingredients moisturize and smooth dehydrated skin prime and perfect skin’s surface camouflage and color correct the skintone and protect skin from the sun with SPF. They can be used as a last step for their skincare benefits or used on their own as an instant beautifier.The multitasking Naked Skin is like an instant retoucher in a tube. Optical blurring pigments instantly even out skintone and minimize the appearance of pores, lines, wrinkles, and redness. SPF 20 shields skin from sun damage and Pepha&reg-Protect helps inhibit DNA damage. Vitasource™ and Glyage&reg improve the appearance of skin's firmness and elasticity, and provide measurable antiaging benefits, while the extremely blendable formula creates a smooth finish, so makeup goes on beautifully and stays put. Moisturizing but never greasy, it hydrates skin instantly and improves hydration over time. Research results:In a clinical study, immediately after use:- 65% had a smoother complexion- 59% had significantly lifted-looking skin- 68% had improved skin hydrationAfter 8 weeks of use:- 93% of participants had significantly firmer-, more lifted-looking skin- 90% had significantly more radiant-looking skin- 84% had a significant improvement in the appearance of fine lines- 84% had skin that looked significantly smoother and more hydrated

answer 1
bb's are meant to be an all-in-one package as i understand it, providing moisturizing, smoothing, evening skin tone properties, and spf....i like this concept, the fact it's all you need after cleansing, toning....if you like as minimal coverage as necessary, light, airy, natural feeling, this is all you need and urban decay is one of the best!! in fact i like bb's with a little dusting of mineral veil and that's it...today i just used this without the veil, in a hurry...and was amazed how great it worked for me!! hope this helps...

You don't have to. It depends on how much coverage you'd like. Sometimes I wear the BB cream and some concealer and that is usually enough.

I do! The bb cream evens out my skin tone beforehand, so I end up having to use less foundation.

Yes sometimes I do. I like BB naked under my foundation or mineral makeup for more coverage. I also wear it on its own with a little blush, concealer and translucent powder.

If you want to use foundation, then it will work perfectly over the Naked Skin BB cream. The Naked Skin leaves skin with a very smooth, even surface like a primer would. I don't use foundation over the Naked Skin bb cream because it evens my skin tone and smooths over pores well enough that I don't feel I need foundation on top. I just add my normal make up (cream blush, concealer where needed and eye make up) then finish with translucent powder in the t-zone.

What is the difference between items 1476134 and 1515741?

Hello! I have combination skin. I tested this product for two weeks, I definitely wouldn't suggest it. The problem is, it doesn't do anything at all. Not even the slightest coverage. My face went through the same process of becoming oily like it normally does. So far the Tarte BB cream is my favorite, and I have tried many of them. Hope this helps!

Will the BB go well with beige skin with pink undertones?
My Urban Decay foundation number is 3.5... I see a lot of people writing saying it's good for them because they have olive skin. My skin isn't olive, but not wicked pale either. I am also "nude" in the sephora compact foundations. I really want to get this!

I also use Urban Decay Foundation in 3.5. This product is not tinted but it does have a pigment to block redness. It really doesn't provide coverage but it perfects the skin. If you have pretty good skin without blemishes this product is amazing. If you need coverage this would be an awesome primer but pricer then others. It has a peppermint smell that I am crazy in love without I don't know that other people would like that as much as I do.

I would go for the one that seems slightly darker than your skin tone and then use a small amount and pat it in with your fingers. Don't drag it across your face, but gently pat and don't use too much initially. Add more if you think you need it.

i have light/medium skin but it tends to be on the lighter side. This product is dark for me but because it is pretty sheer, it gives me a nice glow but i have to make sure i spread it around down my neck and chest as well. Its awesome to have during the summer because you'll be tan and want something to give you an even skin tone and a "no pores" effect.

This is the Best BB cream out there in my opinion. It isn't color specific and isn't intended if you are wanting a lot of coverage or concealer. It leaves the skin so radiant and pretty. If you need more coverage use this first then apply a foundation over it. This would be perfect for any skin tone except really dark skin.

I would pat it on my finger tips and it will go a long way. It should last a few weeks and you will be happy with the result. Don't rely on this for a sunscreen as you use very little, but put on a sun screen first and the apply. Pat it in and don't drag it across your face. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
