Urban Decay Naked Skin BB cream: Review and Application

As a confessed sample fiend, I was very pleased to receive a sample of the new Urban Decay BB cream with my Anastasia brow wax kit! Urban Decay has done its darndest to capitalize off of the fame of their Naked eye shadow kits by releasing Naked foundation, nail polish and now a BB cream. Unfortunately I wasn't as impressed with the BB cream as I have been with everything else from this line. I am a huge fan of the Maybelline BB cream, so I was expecting a much more expensive BB cream would be much more effective! Its a nice product, there's no doubt about that, but, in my opinion it isn't great enough to splurge on . It has about the same amount of coverage as the drug store one and they both feel light on the skin. They also both claim to improve the skin with wear. Interestingly, there are 3 shades for the Maybelline product but only one for UD. I guess it simplifies things? I found that the UD one blended fine, but may have been slightly dark for very, very light skin. but  The one perk that the UD BB cream has over the Maybelline one is that it has anti-aging properties. UD Naked Skin BB cream retails for $34. The video shows an application of the product with my first impressions!
