Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm will launch in two new shades, Naked Light and Naked Dark, for Spring 2014. Urban Decay Naked Skin Balm became available last Spring and acted as more of a tinted moisturizer than BB Cream but I loved it none the less.

Take a look!

Putting aside traditional BB Cream formulas I’d call Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm more of a tinted moisturizer as it is very sheer and nearly transparent. It’s the type of product that takes already good skin and makes it better.

Suffering from dullness? Perhaps some redness or a tiny bit of uneven skin tone yet still have overall smooth, blemish-free skin? Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm is for you. What it lacks in coverage it makes up for with a light diffusing formula that brightens skin and provides a more naked look. They actually market it as a retoucher product but the name gets a little confusing when you’re throwing Beauty Balm in the mix as you automatically think BB Cream.

This basically takes my already nice skin but makes it even nicer. I’ve done a rather detailed review of it already but I just wanted to rehash some of the finer points here.

The formula is super blendable with a slightly satiny yet dewy finish. It evens out, brightens a little bit, and takes my lackluster skin and gives it a nice healthy, bare finish. It can be used under your BB Cream or foundation as a facial primer of sorts but I really like it on its own and even better yet pairing it with the new Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Loose Finishing Powder gives my face a really pretty natural makeupless look!

Urban Decay Naked Light Naked Dark Beauty Balm

This Spring, Urban Decay decided to launch the product in two new shades for lighter and darker skin tones. Naked Medium is the original shade that’s very versatile and works with a wide range of skin tones. However, those with a darker or lighter tone can now select from Naked Light and Naked Dark which will be added to the permanent Urban Decay catalog.

Do you already use Naked Skin Beauty Balm?

Love it?

Not so much?

Do share!

The two newest shades launch tomorrow at urbandecay.com and will be available later this month at Sephora, Ulta, and Macys.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Praise the lawd! They made it in light!! I also loved the formula but it was slightly too dark for me…now I can enjoy it! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Isabella Muse

      it has a good deal of pink but also a lighter peach element to it as well!

  • Cj

    Hmm we’ll it is a really sheer product anyway, the pinky peach would probably act as a nice brightened like those lilac primers. Still getting!

  • Frances

    Love urban decay but, this product was a complete dud for me. Zero pigment and not a good primer either. Returned it to macys yesterday.

    • Quinctia

      Yeah, I feel the same way. To me, this is one of the worst face products I’ve ever tried.

  • fancie

    Hmm I’m interested in trying this. I’ll definitely grab a sample first since there seems to be mixed vibes about it lol

  • Veronica

    Well, I’m glad to see them expanding the range, as the original was way too warm for fair, cool-toned skin, but it still doesn’t grab me as a product. There are better tinted moisturizers out there for a similar price, y’know? I just feel like they didn’t know where they were going with it when it was formulated.
