You might remember I recently blogged about the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Make up and I promised I’d be back with a review of the powder I bought at the same time, the Naked Skin Ultra Definition Pressed Finishing Powder.  I don’t know why brands insist on giving products such lengthy names but I’ll be referring to it as just the powder from now on!

At £23, it’s not the cheapest powder on the market, but I’ve spent more before now, so for me its an okay price. I love everything about the packaging. Once you open the external box, you get this lovely little pouch.

P1170106I don’t really use these pouches that powders often come in, but they do look nice 🙂

Inside you have your palette, its a good quality plastic, in a metallic, bronze-grey shade.

P1170107 P1170108Press the button to open up and inside you’ll find your powder and a mirror inside the lid. Under the lid you’ll find a spongy applicator which I forgot to take a photo of but it’s nothing you’ve not seen before.

P1170110 P1170111As you can see, I don’t tend to opt for the applicator, preferring to use my brush, but the addition of a powder puff is certainly useful for when you’re out and about.

In terms of application it goes on beautifully, leaving a natural flawless finish. I picked up shade Medium Light as I was advised by the Urban Decay counter assistant, which seems to be perfect for me.

P1170112On my skin it sets my make up well and isn’t too matte and apparently there are optical blurring pigments to help minimise imperfections and leave you looking soft focus. It goes really well with the Naked Skin Liquid Make up and lasts on my skin most of the day, I find it needs retouching at about 2pm ish most days.

Here’s how my skin looks with both the foundation and powder, no filters or retouching. However, please excuse the photo, a) its back when my hair was very dark, b) it was just a quick snap taken to show a friend with my phone, c) clearly I wasn’t using my new hair routine for frizz free moisturised hair.

Mine was £23 and I bought it from the Urban Decay counter in Debenhams.
