Makeup Monday: Urban Decay Naked Skin

It's really been a while since I've done a Makeup Monday post, partially because I've tried to limit my makeup allowance over the last couple months. For a while there, I was spending a couple hundred dollars on makeup, which is absolutely unnecessary.. especially on a student budget. 

When I went to NYC a month ago, we stopped into one of the largest Sephora stores in the world in Times Square, which is actually the sister to the Eaton Centre Store. Before going to New York, I decided to do a bit of online browsing to see if there were any products I needed. It just so happens that right before I left for NYC, I ran out of my BB Cream (Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream in Light). 
Usually I would just buy the same product that I had previously finished, but my most recent BB Cream was part of a gift set, so it wasn't my normal pick (although I still enjoyed it). 

In the past, I have used the Naked Skin and loved its coverage and finish. When I was browsing online, I came across this amazing kit by Urban Decay which is only sold online and in the USA.. so obviously I bought it in NYC. It's actually really neat when you buy it in store, you can customize it and pick whatever shade you want from 0.5-12 (I'm a 3.5) and add it to your box. Personally, I apply the foundation with a damp beauty blender to get an airbrushed look.

This kit also comes with a BB cream and prep spray which is great. I suppose you are supposed to use the BB cream under the foundation, but I decided to use them separately as I already get enough coverage with the foundation. I was a bit apprehensive about the prep spray, but it actually works great! The spray definitely made my makeup stay on a few more hours than normal. This kit is awesome!
5 Stars!
