Urban Decay Naked Foundation Shade 5.0

This foundation is not new to the world but it's new to me! Taylor over at Simply Beauty loves this and I remember her review and thought, I NEED to try this! I finally got around to purchasing it after trying it at Sephora (gotta love samples and makeovers!). 

I've been using this nearly every day since I bought it. I mostly use it with the Urban Decay brush it recommends using. At first I was stippling with the brush but pushing so hard the bristles bent and I put it aside and used a different brush for weeks. Then I went back to it and started gently stippling, and it made all the difference. I use one pump for my the "front" of my face, T-zone area and chin, which carries most of my breakouts and redness.  Then I use another pump (straight on to the brush, again) for the outer parts of my cheeks, forehead, blending onto my neck, and eyes. It doesn't perfectly cover under my eyes, but good enough for every day wear and it doesn't settle into lines like most concealers do on me. 

Urban Decay Naked Foundation Shade 5.0 on bare skin
My skin looks more yellow, which it is, as this shade has yellow or cool undertones. This is my usual undertone but you can't tell through all the redness. 

Bigger pictures, eek!

This foundation wears very well, all day with no migration. I do have to powder this down and once or twice during the day, even with primer, but I'm super oily and that is miles better than most foundations that are dissolved by the noon hour. It does make you very matte/flat so some highlighting or contouring is needed so you don't look like a mask. Love it!

Available at Urban Decay, Sephora, and Ulta, and I'm sure other places as well. I purchased mine from Sephora.
