Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation in Fair Neutral

I've never met a powder foundation that I felt offered as much coverage as my favourite liquid foundations, but I keep on trying! Urban Decay's new Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation is available in a wide variety of shades, and I've been using Fair Neutral*. Read on to see if I think that it's worthy of the powder foundation title, or if it's just another setting powder!

"Master a demi-matte, full-coverage makeup look that lasts all day with Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation. The advanced, velvety formula delivers weightless, buildable coverage—that can be applied wet or dry—creating a radiant, no makeup look that doesn’t leave the skin looking dusty or cakey. Formulated with coated, micro-milled powders, this foundation diffuses light to blur the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while Highlighter Performing Pigments Technology offers rich color and the perfect balance of coverage to even out your skintone." - Sephora

Urban Decay's Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation comes packaged in a sleek metallic case, along with a mirror and a sponge. There's also a cute purple floral pouch to protect your compact while travelling. The packaging is a bit bulky, since it does also house the sponge. I personally prefer to use my own brushes, but the sponge will come in handy for on the go touch ups.

This formula from Urban Decay is very smooth and creamy, and I find that on its' own it offers light to medium coverage. Paired with some concealer, this is a great option for daily wear, or for a lighter makeup look. I've also been loving using this as a setting powder over my favourite liquid foundations, for a more polished look. I love how this powder gives me a semi-matte look, while blurring the appearance of pores.

At $43, this is definitely an investment, but I do like that I can use it both as a setting powder and as an actual powder foundation, as advertised. The wide variety of shades should include something for almost everyone. 

Are you a fan of powder foundations or do you prefer liquid formulas?
