Product Review: Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Makeup Foundation

Hello, super awesome peeps! It has been over a year since I have last updated this blog. Thank you to all those who still followed this blog and those who have told me that they still read my blog, it really meant a lot to me and made me want to go back to blogging. I won't go into a lengthy explanation for the hiatus but here I am once again and will do my best to get back to blogging. I have so much products to review for you guys which I am quite excited about. So allow me to start once again by reviewing one of my Holy Grail foundations which is the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Makeup.



I was using the shade 3.0 which was a perfect match but oxidizes on me and turns a shade darker so the one I currently have on my stash is 2.0. Did I already mention that this is one of my two Holy Grail foundations? Yes, I did.


Texture and Consitency:

Consistency is somewhat in between creamy and runny. It doesn't sit like a blob at the back of my hand once pumped and neither does it do a marathon on me. It is applies smoothly and feels both satiny and velvety on my skin. A few seconds is all it needs to blend well with the skin, making it appear as though it's my skin but better.

Coverage:

Coverage is light to medium but buildable. You can, however sheer it out by mixing it with your moisturizer or, in my case, argan oil. If you have good skin, you might not need the use of a concealer but if you have spots or blemishes to conceal here and there, this might not give enough coverage for you. I personally need to use an under eye concealer with this foundation.

Longevity:

This foundation lasts for 8-10 hours on me with fading on the 6th hour mark and I need to touch up with powder. I start seeing traces of oil on the 3rd hour too. Those with dry skin might find this foundation to last longer on them.

What I like:

  • It smells like most foundations do but I am happy to report that it does not contain a strong floral fragrance, for those of us who do not like such scents on makeup. The scent disappears quickly.
  • It is very easy to blend and does not sit on top of your skin. If you have dry patches, it may somehow emphasize them but not like what most matte foundations do. Please note that this is not a mattifying foundation and has a satin or demi-matte finish.
  • It makes my skin look healthy, bouncy even, and does not dry out my skin.
  • No adverse reaction on my skin despite the silicone content.
  • Has a wide selection of shades for various skin tones and undertones. Those that end with .5 are cool-toned while those that do not are warm-toned. I can't imagine anyone having that much difficulty in finding the right shade for them.
  • For the price I paid for this foundation, I am glad that this has a pump that works and allows me to control the amount of foundation I am pumping out from it.
  • The bottle is simple and yet sleek and functional.

What I don't like:
  • Not locally available so I have to rely on pre-orders. 
  • Can be pretty expensive for a mid-range brand. For my first bottle, I paid Php 1,750 which is quite reasonable but for the second, I got it for Php 2, 200 as seller no. 1 no longer has it on stick.

Who might and might not like this:

Those who prefer satin over matte finishes and light-medium coverage will definitely like this foundation. Those who like heavy and full coverage might find themselves adding another layer of foundation. If you have very oily skin and lives in hot and humid places, you will definitely need to set this with powder. I have combination-oily skin and I still need to set it with powder and touch up every now and then. If you need heavy duty foundation, this definitely isn't for you.

Will I buy again?

Definitely! I have, in fact, already purchased my second bottle. :)






Have a great weekend, everyone! :)

Cheers,
