Finally. 😆 I think after so many years of sticking to my holy grail concealer: Mac prolong wear I have a concealer that it as good if not better.
Urban decay’s naked skin concealer* is the kind of concealer you put on and realise why it has it’s steeper price tag and what the hype is all about.
Upon immediate first impressions till even after a few months of use, everytime I use it I am reminded of how creamy and beautifully this blends out under the eyes. The great thing about this concealer is that after one layer you get about a medium coverage ( and that’s on my very dark under eye circles) and for those of you that don’t really have any dark circles then this would be straight up a full coverage or pigmented concealer that will surely highlight your face.
I find that with 1 layer of this concealer on the finish is very natural looking. (I can set it with powder even though it doesn’t really require setting but like to out of habit). This is amazing for me, because on a ‘no makeup-makeup day’ I sometimes like to use just concealer under the eyes to look more awake but yet want it to look natural; like I’m wearing nothing and just like the name suggests: this naked skin concealer does exactly that!
Also a point to note is that even if your not wearing no makeup then a super full coverage under eye can look very un-natural and obviou (maybe because even people with no dark circles still have a slight shadow under the eyes).
However if you want to build up coverage when you want a more flawless perfected look then it is very build-able and can be built up to a beautiful natural full coverage look. I enjoy the feel of this concealer under the eyes because it is moisturising and the way it seamlessly blends into the skin. A beauty blender effortlessly blends the product out and prevents any creasing because it picks up excess product – a tip 😆
I find this concealer to feel very light on the skin as Urban decay claim-
‘Weightless complete coverage concealer- light diffusing peptide infused- paraben free
It lasts on me for roughly 7-8 hours (point at which it starts to fade)which I consider long wearing as that’s a typical work day for most people. Also it fades away evenly and still provides some coverage at the end of a very long day (but if I layer this concealer up to full coverage and set it, it will last 8 hours+ 👍)
The colour selection in this is fantastic ranging from pale to deeper shades with different undertones. My shade is ‘med-dark warm’ and it the perfect warm yellow undertoned shade (probably the best colour match found in concealer!!!), which is key to counteract the darkness under the eyes and perhaps why it works so well even without a corrector ( but I do use a corrector on days I want it to be super flawless!however even if I don’t it doesn’t look ashy on me).
And lastly I thought I’d touch upon packaging because I love the sturdy luxe tube that it comes in, and the doe-foot applicator as it allows you to control the amount of product required! – A fantastic concealer that doesn’t crease, is super creamy, providing a natural ‘naked’ skin like finish!!
I highly recommend it and will definitely repurchase once I’m on the verge of running out! 😆
