My Experience about Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm:
I took a looong time to really figure out what I think about this product. This is the third BB cream I have used so far and this is the most different kind of a product I have ever come across.

  • It is a thin  liquidy lotion kinda BB cream.
  • It is suuuper sheer. I mean my Lotus SPF 40 Sunscreen gives better coverage than this. It is so sheer that after you apply it you’d not see any thing on your face no coverage, no product. it feels like you have applied nothing on your skin. It’s gives a teeny meeny coverage if you apply the second layer of this. Your skin actually looks Naked…if that’s what they intended to do. 😛
  • It makes your skin feel incredibly smooth – almost velvetty and gives a semi matte finish.
  • It makes pores look smaller. Overall, I can say that it does make my skin look a tad bit better. My skin but better kinds.
  • It is oil free.
  • Although it looks like you have worn nothing on your skin, I notice that my blush stays on way longer and looks good even 6 hours after application.
  • Has SPF 20 and the active ingredients are sunscreen of this product.
  • You can use it as a primer underneath your foundation but then why would I use this. I’d use a primer and a better SPF sunscreen.
  • I don’t like the smell. It smells a bit weird to me.
  • Comes in a classy squeeze tube. Very convenient.
  • It does not enhance any dry patches or fine lines on the skin. I find that it does not hydrate my skin but it does not make my skin dry either. Those with oily skin might find it a bit greasy. But it’s not the oil slick greasy kinds. Those with oily skin look for something that could offer a matte finish and helps in making their pores look smaller, this does a teeny bit of both. But it’s not THE product for people with oily skin.
  • Comes only in one shade but considering how sheer it is, it would work for a whole lot of skin tones.

If you ask me if I’d repurchase this, I’d say no. I don’t find the reason to use it since it barely gives any coverage. I always prefer to use my Tarte BB Cream for that natural day time look. Urban Decay Naked BB Cream has both its negative and positive points if I am using something I’d use something that would give a bit of coverage or else I’d use nothing. This beauty balm pretty much falls into the ‘nothing’ category. It feels like an expensive sunscreen with low SPF. :/ Well, of course you get spared with the whitish cast or sweatiness that a sunscreen can cause..but still.. I am not too happy with this. It’s always my second option whenever I plan to use make on my skin. I am just using it because I have it. I don’t recommend it. Pick it up only if you have pretty much flawless skin and you are looking for teeny bit better look for your skin.

It’s not available in India

  1. I Bought this product 4 months back, as u said no coverage at all, i have combination skin, it made my t-zone look more oily *cry* and more dryness on cheeks *cry* u didn’t get dry patches *shock* , anyways i am not going to buy this again *nababana* , first i cant finish the tube *nababana*, my loreal CC cream, olay cc cream is best than this and Maybelline BB cream is better than this, nice review rati, i want to try Tarte BB cream *drool*

    1. oh god! thankfully it did not do all that for me. But i found it useless… I mean I never understand the whole point of using it. *silence* Tarte one is realllly nice. But it gives that dewy effect so try a sample or something if you can before picking it up. 🙂

  2. Lotus sunscreen gives better coverage 😛
    Your skin is so awesome, if no coverage makes you look this gorgeous, then what would happen with an awesome foundation *woot*

  3. This looks good for everyday tinted coverage *drool* you look so fresh and beautiful *clap* pls do a tutorial for everyday natural makeup using current favorites in Indian market 🙂

  4. Did U say you don’t like this? Cuz U sure rock this Naked BB *jai ho* *jai ho* Ur skin looks flawless *woot* *jai ho* *touchwood* *puchhi*

  5. I received a sample tube of this and I agree Rati, it’s so sheer! Too sheer for me and so different from the Asian BB creams I’m used to, which are thicker and high coverage. The smell was an issue for me too and it made my face itch. But with coverage or none, you look great. 🙂

  6. If it’s too sheer any coverage, as you said, you can just use a primer and sunscreen only. You look pretty always *puchhi*

  7. I was already in love with the product pics and then I saw yours looking so fresh and radiant….I was already on my toes to buy it but thank god I read the whole review 😀
