Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation was just released for fall 2016 and I’ve got my thoughts and some swatches of shades for you.
This new foundation has a full coverage, waterproof, long-wear formula and comes in 24 shades. It has three times the amount of pigment as their Naked Skin Liquid Makeup, so yeah, it’s definitely what I consider full coverage. It comes in a beautiful sleek gunmetal bottle with an airless pump and a cut-out design that lets you see the product shade inside. Their description – “A high-tech polymer gel system that provides lasting wear, while 25% pigment and special blend of next-generation silicones provides a full-coverage, waterproof, matte finish. We also laced this formula with light-diffusing pigments to blur flaws for beautifully perfected skin.”
1.0 is the second lightest shade and is a fair bisque with soft warm undertone.
1.5 is a fair bisque with subtle pink undertone.
2.0 is a fair with soft warm undertone.
3.0 is a light with soft warm undertone.
3.25 is a light with neutral undertone.
I am still on the fence whether my shade is 3.0 or 3.25 (still trying them both out on my face currently), but the other three here are definitely much too light and/or pink for me. I *think* 3.0 matches me better.
As you might already know, I never wear a full coverage foundation. I don’t really ever even wear foundation much anymore. My go-to product since it came out is Naked Skin One & Done because I don’t like a ton of coverage. This stuff is very pigmented and a small amount covers a lot of area. It certainly blurred out pores and other little dots and spots without a primer underneath and blends pretty nicely. It’s easier to use something like a beauty blender or a brush rather than fingers with this since it’s thick. The finish is matte, but not like a SUPER dry matte. But definitely matte.
Personally I don’t love this foundation simply because I am not into full coverage. It doesn’t feel heavy or look like a mask or anything, it’s just that I feel like I look younger and better nowadays when my real skin pokes through and I have some sheen/shine on my face. Matte isn’t really your friend as you age, and around my eyes especially I think this settled a bit, and made me look more “wrinkly”. But if you love a full coverage or are younger and can pull it off the finish, you might love this foundation!
You can find this now on the Urban Decay site and it’s $40.00 for a 1 oz bottle.
Thoughts about this? Are you a full coverage person or no?
