Urban Decay recently introduced two new Naked Skin Beauty Balms with their Summer Nights Summer 2014 Collection. One was a new illuminating beauty balm and for the sun goddesses and gods we have this new Urban Decay Naked Skin Bronzing Beauty Balm.
If you already love and use Urban Decay Naked Beauty Balm you’ll likely adore Bronzing Beauty Balm as the formulas are the same it’s just the colors that have changed.
Urban Decay Naked Skin Bronzing Beauty Balm is a medium bronze shade with a hint of an orange undertone. Yes, I got nervous too at that orange undertone but this actually gives your skin a very, very subtle touch of the sun if you’re pale and if you’re already tan it’ll enhance your tanned skin. I’ve used it on both my medium fair skin and my newly “I couldn’t avoid the sun while away tan and even SPF 50 didn’t keep me from getting a warm glow” skin.
According to Urban Decay the formula minimize pores, lines, wrinkles and redness while firming skin and giving it a lifted look with continued use in as little as eight weeks. I can’t speak for my skin being firmer but I will say that Naked Beauty Balm is excellent at giving skin a softer focused finish so pores will look visibly smaller and skin appears smoother. The same holds true for the Bronzing Beauty formula. This has a soft almost gel-like texture that blends out easily and gives skin a soft, even finish with a hint of a golden radiance. It’s not shiny, it’s not shimmery, or sparkly…but it does have a very pretty healthy, glow that says, “I’ve been standing in the sun for a few minutes but not for hours”. It isn’t a fried look nor is it a terribly bronzed look. If you want something that’s popping, well, this isn’t it. But if you want something to add warmth to your face that’s very subtle, this is your girl!
Urban Decay Naked Skin Bronzing Beauty Balm Swatches
It’s kinda the perfect product for people like me who dislike a heavily tanned look but do want a little added warmth. On my medium fair skin it added warmth while acting as a base or a foundation product as it creates a soft, even appearance. You can use it over foundation or BB Cream to enhance your skin tone but you can also use it as a foundation product of sorts if you don’t require heavier foundation products. This won’t concealer or offer coverage but it will act to perfect and even out your skin tone. Since I got a good deal of sun while I was away this looks even better on my sunkissed skin. It kinda enhanced the sunny glow I already have and adds richness and warmth.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Bronzing Beauty Balm isn’t your average, everyday bronzing product. This runs sheerer which makes it mistake proof! It’s particularly nice for those who already have tanned or medium skin with warmer undertones as it enhances such a ton and adds warmth and radiance!
