One of my absolute favourite foundations is the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Foundation so when I seen Urban Decay were releasing a new foundation that provided full coverage with a modern matte finish and perfect for all night wear I was definitely interested in trying.
This foundation is the ‘All nighter full coverage longwear’ Liquid Foundation.
I very rarely buy a high end foundation on a whim so as usual I asked for a sample. Just simply bring in your own travel size pot (available in Penneys) and there should be no problem in getting a sample.
The sales assistant explained to me that it is so pigmented so a little truly goes a long way.
She gave me enough product for roughly 4-5 applications.
The shade she felt which would compliment my skin tone is shade 3.25 which I personally think has a mix of warm & cool tones.
With my pale skin it is a smidgen too dark but nothing a bit of bronzer couldn’t fix.
This foundation is described as being >
- Full Coverage
- Matte Finish
- Long Lasting
- Oil Free
- Loaded with Pigment
- No need to build coverage
Very little was needed for full application and it blended incredibly easy.
I always use a dense foundation brush or a stippling brush.
It is a liquid formula that is not too quick nor too thin.
I would agree that it is a full coverage foundation.
It has a matte finish but did not cling to the dry patches.
It is very long lasting, after about 8 hours it was still pretty perfect (I applied a light dusting of mattifying powder just after application).
I did not build coverage, just one layer.
I found it had an almost “flawless” look for the first few hours.
I did find that the foundation accentuated any fine lines I do have.
My pores started to become more visible after a few hours.
But after about 8 hours I must say the foundation still looked pretty much perfect, no shine or breaking down.
Overall I am quite impressed by this foundation.
I have read some other reviews and some people seem to be having a problem with the foundation oxidising (turns orange/darker) but I have not encountered that problem.
I will use up the rest of my sample but I’m a bit disappointed that it accentuated my fine lines.
