Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer Fair Neutral Review

I don’t know about you, but once I find a product that I really like it tends to be the only thing that I use for a while. This tends to only happen with concealer, and it’s probably why I don’t have many. (I have my full collection on Instagram) For a while now I’ve been using the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer in the shade Fair Neutral.

I first bought this a while back and never got in the swing of using it. There was just something about it that I wasn’t keen on, but I tried it again in January and fell in love.

The Coverage

When I heard the name I assumed it would be a light formula with minimal coverage, but it isn’t. It’s actually full coverage, or  ‘weightless complete coverage’, as it says on the packaging. I use this for highlighting under my eyes, and it’s brilliant for it. It blends easily, and stays put.

 Staying Power

Following on from the last three words of the previous paragraph. Let’s talk about the lasting power. I don’t find this to crease, but I always set concealer with powder, so that might help in that aspect. I’ve never had a problem with this moving either, as once it’s on; it’s on. It tends to last all day on me, with no need for a top up.

Shade Range

There are 14 shades to pick from in this range. I have the lightest in Fair Neutral, which I find is light enough for under eye brightening. Sure the range isn’t massive, and it sure isn’t Fenty, but it could be a lot worse.

The Applicator 

The applicator is a paddle rather than a traditional doe foot. I personally love it, as it dispenses the right amount of product without needing to go back in for more. It also doesn’t tug on the skin when applying, but goes on smoothly.

The Finish

I have dry skin, and I don’t find this to cling to dry patches at all. Even with a setting powder, it still doesn’t look incredibly dry. Instead it’s creamy, and weightless.

The Price

My least favourite part. This will cost you £19.50, which isn’t exactly cheap. It isn’t the most expensive out there though, as it is slightly cheaper than the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. As that one comes in at £24. I got mine from Debenhams, where it is currently on offer for £15.60. (That is correct at time of publishing)


This is a recent favourite, that I have been loving. It stays in place all day, and the shade is a great colour for brightening. It’s a shame the price is so high, but it isn’t the dearest on the market.  I do really like Urban Decay, as I also love their palettes and lipsticks, but this concealer is really great too.

What is your favourite concealer?

    I’ve tried this, in exactly the same shade too and I love it! I didn’t re-buy as I personally wouldn’t say the coverage was as good as my drugstore favourites so I didn’t feel the need to splash out again. But I agree with literally everything in this post, I wasn’t expecting to be as thick and creamy as it was. Definitely one of Urban Decays winning products!

      So glad you love it too! Would you not?! I love the coverage it gives, but I can imagine there are great dupes out there. The name is definitely a little misleading in that aspect, as it sounds like something thin and natural. That is so true xx

      It’s definitely a little pricey, but it is a really great concealer! Thank you so much xx

    Great review! I haven’t tried this one, but it looks good. Interesting to know that is offers full coverage, because you don’t usually expect that with these kind of concealers! My favourite one is the Bourjois Healthy Mix concealer. It comes in a little squeezy tube and a little goes a long way!

    I love this concealer too! It is pricey, but I definitely think it’s worth it, plus so many department stores do discount days so you can pick it up a little cheaper! Fab review! xx

      It’s so good isn’t it?! That is so true, you can definitely drop on to a good deal. Thank you so much xx

    So many have raved about this however I couldn’t bring myself to spend that much on a concealer! I am faithful to Maybelline FitMe and Instant Age Rewind.

    I have not actually used their concealer but I have been using the HD concealer by NYX, and Maybelline.

    • 16th March 2018 / 9:28 pm

      The NYX one is so good, and everyone seems to love the Maybelline ones xx

    I have been debating trying this concealer for some time now but it does sound like its brilliant, its the price which puts me right off 🙁 Brilliant post though, absolutely love your pictures xx

    • 19th March 2018 / 8:00 pm

      The price is definitely the worst part about it! Thank you so much, I appreciate that xx

    I’m lookimg for a good concealer for my under eyes area and this looks amazing! I was thinking about the Nars or Mac one but your review is super positive so I want to try it!

    • 19th March 2018 / 8:01 pm

      This one is my all time favourite at the minute. The formula is one of the best I’ve tried. I hope you love it, if you give it a try xx

    I remember this used to be my go-to concealer for a while; I also have dry skin and remember enjoying it until I have switched up my skincare routine and it started bunching up on top of my moisturizer (I blame it on the moisturizer). Have you tried their correctors? They are also very nice! x

      Oh no! Gutted it isn’t compatible with your moisturiser! I’ve not tried the correctors, but heard they’re great xx

    I can’t believe I still haven’t tried this concealer, in fact I’ve barely tried any high end concealers. I really want to try this one now!
