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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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?
