Aallexxy's Foundation Files; Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation

Foundation Files; This is where I test out different base products, from concealer to powder, tinted moisturiser and foundation etc, over a period of 7-14 days and post my findings. (Follow me on Instagram, Twitter and Bloglovin so you don't miss a post). So let’s get started!!!

First off some information about me; Skintype: Combination (leaning dry in winter and Oily in Summer). Shade Reference: in between MAC NC45-50/NW43. Undertones: Yellow/Neutral.

Brand: Urban decay

Name: Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation*

Coverage: Medium
Shade: Dark Warm


What the brand says: Want a foundation that delivers amazing coverage, lasts all day and works both wet AND dry? Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation delivers. Our advanced, velvety formula provides weightless, buildable coverage with a luminous, demi-matte finish for a Naked Skin feel.

While some traditional powder foundations might look dusty or even cakey on the skin, Naked Skin blends gorgeously and wears comfortably. Like the rest of our Naked Skin line up, Naked Skin Powder Foundation diffuses light to blur fine lines and wrinkles to make you look as if professionally retouched. It’s also ultra-forgiving: apply more in the areas where you need extra coverage and all you’ll see is beautiful, perfected skin.

Enriched with coated, micro-milled powders and HPP (Highlighter Performing Pigments) technology, Naked Skin Powder Foundation has a creamy feel, rich, long-lasting colour, and a perfect level of coverage to even out the look of your skin tone.

Added bonus: We included a protective pouch in a purple X-rayed flower design to help keep your compact protected from crumbling.

Naked Skin Powder Foundation comes in a range of meticulously calibrated shades. Our shade-matching system provides a clear starting point for finding your perfect shade: the first part represents shade intensity, and the second indicates shade undertone.

Wear Time (with/without primer): Excellent, minimal touch-ups required, if at all any. (NB: not tested during humid summer weather) 
Price (ml): £26 for 9g

Conclusion: For an avid liquid/cream foundation lover like myself, I have fallen hard for this powder foundation, it's creamier than typical powders and works brilliantly wet for fuller coverage or dry for light coverage and a matte finish. I have used this alone, over concealer, to set liquid and cream foundation or as a touch up powder throughout the day.
