I’ve been wanting to try a beauty balm (aka BB) for a while now, but none of my trusted skin care brands offered one. And knowing the problems I have with my skin, I’m not going to put just anything on my face! So obviously I was thrilled when I ordered the Naked Basics palette and it came with a sample of their brand new Naked Skin Beauty Balm! I love anything from Urban Decay, especially their Naked line, and since I went through the sample so quickly, I knew I needed to buy full the size product. And that I also needed to give one away to one of my readers! (Stay tuned.) And…I love it so much that I actually posted an un-Photoshopped picture of my makeup-fee face for a before and after. Now that’s a testimonial, ladies!
If you don’t know anything about beauty balms, they come with a lot of claims – miracle retouchers in a tube! And you would think that after trying almost every “miracle” product on the market (and working in advertising), that I wouldn’t buy into the hype. But I do! I’m a total sucker for claims!

I know the last thing I need is ANOTHER cheek tint or blush. Or any makeup for that matter. But I can’t help myself, it’s an addiction, and it’s fun to change it up! As you know, around here we’re obsessed with Tarte Cheek Stains, Benetint and Posietint, and most recently, Benefit Hervana.
But I just got a sample of Urban Decay’s Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tint in Quickie, and…it’s a total winner! You know we love their Naked palettes (and their eyelid primer and eyeliner and I can keep going) and now we have another product to add to the love list. This was one of the first samples I actually finished, and nowI HAVE to purchase. It’s a sheer, buildable cheek tint that feels weightless, is easy to blend, and dries to a soft finish. And it LASTS.
