Naked Flush Bronzer/Highlighter/Blush ($30.00)

  • Streak Pale bronze matte bronzer; peachy shimmer highlighter; bright coral blush
  • Strip Deep bronze shimmer bronzer; golden shimmer highlighter; deep mauve blush

Naked Body Beauty Balm ($32.00)

Love the benefits of Naked Skin Beauty Balm so much that you’re tempted to slather it all over? We’ve got a better idea: Urban Decay launches Naked Skin Body Beauty Balm. Like a beauty balm for your whole bod, this luxe, moisturizing formula instantly tightens skin (yes, TIGHTENS!) and blurs flaws. The result? Smoother, FIRMER, more perfected skin every time you use it. (And a luminous, all-over Naked glow.) Lightweight and non-greasy, this sheer, illuminating formula works on every skin tone (from pale to deep-dark) and gives skin a subtle sheen. And did we mention the light-diffusing spheres that make you look professionally retouched? You’ll want to start every day Naked.

Naked Beauty Balm ($34.00)

Like our other shades, Naked Bronzing and Naked Illuminating blur flaws in seconds and provide serious anti-aging benefits in just 8 weeks. Naked Skin Beauty Balm diffuses light with high-tech pigments to give you amazing, natural, NAKED-looking skin as it perfects, protects, treats, primes and hydrates. Moisturizing but never greasy, it hydrates skin instantly and improves hydration over time. Makeup goes on beautifully and stays put. And did we mention the light-diffusing spheres that make you look professionally retouched? You’ll definitely look better Naked!

  • Naked Bronzing Medium bronze
  • Naked Illuminating Illuminating
