Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm: Review and Swatch

      I recently jumped on the BB cream bandwagon and I have been trying to find one that fits me the best. I love lots of Urban Decay products so I really wanted to try their version. The Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm is currently only available in the US, either at Sephora or Urban Decay's online store.
      Now even before I bought this, I heard mixed reviews, especially from fair skinned people. So it was a good thing that I received a trial size first because at $34 USD, this was not a good investment (I will be returning this soon).
   The balm itself feels nice on the skin but doesn't provide much coverage. It is definitely on the weaker side of the coverage spectrum. I prefer fuller coverage since I have recently been using BB cream as a replacement for foundation. Many people with fair skin who tried this found it to be too orange for them; however, I found that this product gave me more of a light tan glow, so that wasn't too bad, but I definitely still prefer my pale skin over anything else.
     I think this product only suits light/medium skin tones and is good for those who intend on using BB creams as a primer for their foundation. So hopefully you will have better luck with this product than me.
