New from Urban Decay: Naked Flushed & Bronzing BB

There is nothing I love more in Summer, than a bronzed complexion and a nice golden glow. To help me achieve this look, I have been using two new Urban Decay releases. The Naked Skin Bronzing Beauty Balm and Naked Flushed Compact in Strip. I might be slightly obsessed with them :)

This product is one of the two new shades of the Naked Skin Beauty Balm, which I love! It comes with the exact same anti-ageing benefits, but on top of that it has a gorgeous bronze tint. It is very pigmented, so you might have to mix it with something lighter if you are fair skinned, but I use it on it's own and it works really well with my skin tone. The formula feels light and velvety, adds a lot of hydration and contains broad spectrum SPF20. Perfect for Summer. 

 If you are not a fan of a bronzed complexion, you might prefer the Naked Skin Illuminating Beauty Balm, with champagne-coloured pearls that give the skin a gorgeous, radiant look.

There are three new shades of the Naked Flushed palette: Streak, Native and Strip, which is the one I received. It contains a deep bronze shimmery bronzer, a super shimmery golden highlighter and a matte deep mauve blush. It isn't something I would recommend for those who like more natural looks, but... if you have darker skin and like a seriously bronzed complexion and an obvious highlight, you will love Strip. I have been wearing it a lot recently to complete my favourite 'bronzed goddess' look and I love the way it looks on my skin (with a tan). The formula is super pigmented, finely milled, easy to blend and long lasting and I absolutely love the packaging of the palette. It is perfect for travelling or touch ups on the go. If you prefer something less 'obvious' than this selection of shades, give on of the other three options a go.

Available from, and other Urban Decay stockists.

  12. Need to buy the Flushed compact :) It is gorgeous~ It reminds me so much of the Sleek version but this one seems so much more pigmented and the shimmer is much more subtle~

    Thanks for the review~ Have a good day!

  13. Mish is an Urban Decay devotee! I've only tried the primer potion and the setting sprays but that palette looks beautiful. I may have to pay a visit to the counter to swatch these... I love the look of the Native as I'm quite pale even with a tan.
