Lust or Bust | Urban Decay – Naked Collection | Part 2
July 7, 2017
Happy Friday! I’m still in the process of replacing images on older posts but I did have a chance to finish up my research on the Urban Decay Naked Skin Collection for the most part. So in today’s post, we’re going to go over the all the face products, lips and even nails included in the Naked range.
So without further ado, grab a coffee and let’s just jump in.
Let’s start out with skin. This is what delayed the post because I needed a refresher on the foundation. Anyway, the complexion items in the Naked range are meant to feel and look like real skin, like your skin but better. Everything is light weight and light – medium buildable coverage with a demi-matte finish.
The Naked Skin Weightless Definition Liquid Makeup has a beautiful formula. It’s so light weight and sits beautifully on the skin. I forgot how nice a foundation it is. My only complaint about is the smell. I can’t get past the craft paint smell. But other than that, it’s a wonderful foundation for the warmer months and looks great for drier skin types.
The foundation is said to be formulated with Light Diffusing Spheres to reduce the look of pores and fine lines and blurs imperfections. It also includes tons of skincare ingredients to help with anti-aging and hydration. The skincare benefits are amazing for a foundation. I might get over that scent. lol.
The shade range is very impressive as well. The recently added two deeper shades to the line.
The Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer has a similar hydrating texture as the foundation with more coverage and pigmentation. It’s a thin buildable formula. I see why it’s so popular. Again, it comes in a great shade range and includes the same skincare benefits as the foundation. It melts into the skin and looks beautiful. It does have the odd smell though.
There is also the color correcting concealers which have the same finish as the concealer and come in a great range of color correcting shades.
One thing I wasn’t a fan of was the Naked Skin One and Done. Just because I am not a fan of tinted moisturizers. That being said, for a tinted moisturizer like product, this is one of the better ones for the skincare benefits alone.
I can’t speak to the quality of the powders because I haven’t had an opportunity to try them out. I’m really excited to try the Naked Skin Illiminizer Translucent Pressed Beauty Powder. I love those types of finishing powders that give a radiant glow.
The Naked Skin Ultra Definition Pressed Finishing Powder is more of tradition pressed finishing powder. It’s said to give a luminous demi-matte finish that complements the foundation and concealer. The shade range is rather limited but I would like to check this one out too. The finishing powder also comes in a loose powder format.
There is also a powder foundation in the range called the Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation which can be used wet or dry for buildable coverage. I’m guessing it is a light coverage powder foundation. The color range isn’t bad either, just no skincare benefits like the liquids. I would imagine this is a great powder to pair with the foundation on days when you need just a bit more coverage.
Now the Naked Skin Shapeshifter I have completely changed my mind about after playing with it in the store yesterday. The texture and formula are so nice. It’s lightweight and blendable. Again, I feel like the made a very inclusive shade range. Could they make a darker contour for Women of Color, yes. But they did do better than a lot of other brands have. The Light palette is stunning for porcelain, fair – light skin tones. I was so impressed. I’m def getting my hands on this one. This is a palette for doing contour in the everyday real world which gives these a unique quality.
The Naked Flush blush palettes are kind of lackluster to me. I never was drawn to them. I do think the blush shades are lovely, but the bronzers and highlight were just meh and not very inclusive for super fair skin to deep skin. The blush though is very pretty. They have a smooth texture and pigmentation is nice. Just kind of boring.
This is probably my least favorite product from the collection. The Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powders were just a disappointment. They swatch so pretty but just disappear on the skin. They blend away to nothing! Save yourself the money and skip on these. I have tried to make them work on the face, where it got micro glitter everywhere and on the body where it barely showed up. Girl, I tried with these but they are a huge bust in my opinion.
Not all of these lip products are directly linked to the Naked Collection but the shades and names tie into shades from the Naked Eyeshadow Palettes so I wanted to include them.
One of my bestest friends loves the Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss. She’s a gloss girl. Opposite of me. I’m a lipstick girl. For a gloss though, these are nice, with a hint of color.
The lipsticks are hit or miss for me depending on the finish, but the shades are so pretty and I do enjoy UD’s lip liners. I haven’t had a chance to try the Vice Liquid Lipstick yet but I have a feeling I would enjoy those.
I forgot to include the newest launches in the lip department for the Naked Heat stuff, Those colors I am really feeling. I swatched them and was very very tempted.
Sadly, my Sephora did have the Go Naked Perfume Oil in yet. I want to smell it so bad! I love when brands launch companion fragrances.
I really thought it was cool they did a nail polish collection for the Naked Collection. Those shades are right up my alley. Not a bad price point at all either at $10.
That wraps up my Lust or Bust overview of the Naked Collection. I know this one wasn’t quite as in-depth as the one I did on the eyeshadows but I have more experience and opinions on those.
Monday I will have a fresh Weekly Edit up and a tutorial using the Naked 3 on Wednesday and a full review on Friday concluding my Naked obsession series. I hope everyone has a great Weekend and Photobucket can suck it!
