Urban Decay | Naked Skin Illuminating Beauty Balm | Review/Swatches

Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm-Illuminating

You will have seen me review the Naked Skin Bronzing Beauty Balm link and I mentioned how I was dying to try the Illuminating Beauty Balm well I got my hands on it!

I love a luminous/dewy base so I'm a sucker for anything that works towards it which is why I had to get the Illuminating Beauty Balm! This balm is designed to give your skin a healthy looking glow with ant-ageing and moisturising benefits. It has a slight tinted moisturising finish to it, what I was surprised to see was that it has tiny glitter particles which you'll be able to see from my hand swatch which is blended out towards the left of my hand. I have tried this on its own and it maybe because I am tanned but I didn't find it made much of a difference, so I now mix it in with my foundation and then apply and it gives a gentle glow to my skin, the glitter particles aren't so visible on the skin.

Overall I was executing it to be more dewy-like and wasn't expecting tiny shimmer particles although they aren't so visible on the skin. This definitely works well at keeping the moisturised too. I wasn't totally blown away with it but I guess I will experiment with more to see how it works best for me as I've read it has worked a treat for others.
