It's so strange to talk about makeup in public nowadays. You can't say, 'Oh, have you tried Better Than Sex yet?' or 'NARS' Orgasm looks great on you!' without getting more than a few weird looks. So whenever I praise this Urban Decay's Naked Skin Foundation, strangers tend to furrow their brows and look at me disapprovingly.
It doesn't matter though. Because I do love Naked Skin.
I found the foundation to be light-weight, feeling like nothing on skin, and gave a natural look with a satin finish. Not too matte, not too shiny. It's my go-to foundation for everyday makeup, when looking well-kept is mandatory.

Also, I would not recommend the foundation for dry skin. It clung to flakes and dry patches of my skin when I first used it when the weather dried out my nose and chin. It seemed to emphasize these troubled spots.
I should mention that this should only be for daily makeup because it does not give the full coverage you may need on a formal night, nor does this foundation look good with flash. Trust me, you will look like something even ghosts would be scared of. This should be intended for everyday wear.
|In Shade 2.0|
I initially bought the foundation in Shade 3.0, thinking it would match my skin perfectly. However, once I put it on, I realized that it was too dark. It made me feel like an Oompa Loompa. So I bought in a Shade lighter in 2.0 which was almost perfect. Almost.
The foundation was still slightly too dark. I match foundations with my chest, and I realized it was too yellow. However, it still looked natural and absolutely beautiful. Perhaps, when I finish this bottle, I'll go buy it in Shade 1.5.
So have you tried Naked Skin Foundation, and what is you go-to foundation? Please do tell me, I would love to know!
