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

No. It's good for light to medium with a yellow or olive undertone. It will provide more color coverage for a light or light-medium and just an evening out for a true medium. Urban decay's site offers a light & dark version as well. The light does work with a fair pink undertone, don't know how it works with a yellow undertone nor do I know about the dark.

This particular shade is not perfect on all skin tones. UD now makes a "light" and "dark" version with this original being their "medium" but Sephora doesn't appear to sell those two shades online. I have very fair skin and use the "Light" version. I think I remember the Light and Dark versions being available at my local Sephora store the last time I was there so you might go check them out in person.

I have yellow/olive-toned skin as well! This will be perfect for your skin...as a matter of fact, I think it was meant for people with our complexion! Depending on how fair or deep your shade is, this might even add a little color to make you look slightly sun-kissed! It does for me, but my skin is pretty fair this time of year.

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...

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.

My Mom, 69, & me, 46, both use it. We both apply lotion first & powder on top. I use a powder foundation because I use the fair and it evens out, but doesn't give much color coverage, whereas the medium that this is here on Sephora and that my Mom uses gives more coverage because it has more color to the product so she uses Physicians Formula mosaic powder on top.

Should I apply a powder over this?
Should I apply a powder over the UD Naded Shin Beauty Balm if I wear it alone? I use MUFE HD powder regularly to set my usual foundation. I have oily skin and don't want to shine mid-day, but I also don't want to disrupt the "light-reflecting" properties. I just recently purchased this and have not tried it yet. Any thoughts?

While a setting powder is not necessary, if you would like to ensure a more matte finish throughout the day, a translucent powder over the BB Cream or over your T-Zone would help cut any mid-day oil build up.

This Urban Decay Naked BB cream works great for moisturizing. I have very dry skin and most times with other BB creams I have to use a moisturizer underneath. Otherwise my skin will feel tight and be flaky. With the Urban Decay Naked BB Cream I don't have that problem.

So it really depends on your skin type. You might have to experiment. I hope this helps!

BB creams are not typically formulated to be used with a primer. Additionally, I've found many American style BB creams to have heavy silicone bases that makes them function quite a lot like many primers.

BB Creams have a primer, moisturizer, and tad color to start with. So to answer your question, you would be adding extra primer. I put on the sheer primer first and then the BB cream. It may be over kill but I'm just testing out this new BB stuff myself. BB cream has other benefits, like I mentioned, so it may be beneficial.

After trying this product (and also not loving it because it seemed more like a tinted moisturizer than a BB) I switched to Smashbox, first the BB cream and then the CC.
