Urban Decay Naked Foundation

I decided to try this foundation because I wanted to try a light coverage foundation for the summer and honestly my skin looks and feels better since I have started using  . The other foundations I have tried have all been medium to full coverage. I always noticed that by the end of the day I have noticeable lines around my mouth from my foundation and my face feels caky and gross; this is after a full day and usually if I walk home from school (which takes about 30 minutes) or if I wear a full face of makeup to work (wear my skin tends to get pretty oily because I am constantly moving). Because this foundation is light weight the coverage is sheer and it just helps to even skin tone. It did help to cover my blemishes as well, but concealer is still needed.

I have noticed a bit of a difference since I have started using this foundation. My skin does not feel heavy when I wear it and I have noticed fewer breakouts after. My skin tends to breakout pretty easily so I try to keep it as clean as possible and I do not wear foundation often because of this. However with this foundation I feel comfortable enough to wear it all day and not worry about it irritating my skin and causing any breakouts. My skin tends to get pretty oily while I am at work so I pretty much never wear makeup but with this foundation I feel comfortable enough to wear it to work and not worry about my face getting too oily or causing my skin to get irritated.

I use the lightest shade on this foundation (0.5)  which is for very fair porcelain with subtle pink undertones. This is a tad lighter than what my face it but it blends in well with my neck and once I contour a bit and add some bronzer my face looks normal and no longer washed out. My skin and my face especially has a lot of pink in it so this helps to neutralize all that pink.

This product retails for $47 at Sephora. I purchased this at my local beauty store.

Update: I later tried mixing my shade with one that was slightly darker and found that I was able too make a better match for my skin tone.
