URBAN DECAY GETS NAKED

Urban Decay’s popular Naked eye palette, which launched a few years ago, contains far from the usual boring nude eye shadows. Since then, the brand’s Naked foundation has grown into my personal favorite, and every item under the Naked umbrella (including the Naked 2 palette) is worth collecting.

Urban Decay co-founder Wende Zomnir next focused on creating a bit of magic for her body to help her feel more confident about the skin she was born in. Hence the Urban Decay Naked Skin Body Balm ($32), a hefty, bronze-colored tube filled with a deliciously light, non-greasy, and illuminating formula that works on all skin tones, from pale white to dark.

Zomnir wanted not only a quick fix (she disliked her “sagging knees”) but also skin luminosity. Ingredients include Vitasource™ and dGlyage®, which firm skin, improve elasticity, and fight wrinkles, while watermelon extract protects against daily stress. There are hydration components to this body balm too: antioxidant-rich green tea extract and soothing vitamin E as well as Matrixyl 3000 (a powerful anti-wrinkle peptide) help improve skin elasticity.

I loved everything about this: the concept, the look and feel, and the result on my skin. Stretch marks temporarily disappear and the body glows like a pearl. Plus, the more you use it, the better your skin becomes, and it also has a tightening effect and blurs flaws. The light diffusing spheres make your skin look as though it’s been professionally retouched. And just a little bit goes a long way too.

The brand also introduced two new BB creams for the face: Naked Skin Bronzing Beauty Balm ($34) and Naked Skin Illuminating Beauty Balm ($34), which are formulated to blur flaws and hide imperfections. With so many beauty balms in the market today, it’s getting a bit crowded, but the body balm still stands out.
