Hey everyone! Today I'm going to be reviewing the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer that I had gotten during the Sephora VIB sale. I did some major damage with that sale and I do plan on reviewing alot of what I bought. Let's get into it!
Description of product taken from Sephora's website:
This concealer from Urban Decay lets you cover imperfections without
looking covered up. It’s easily blendable and buildable, giving you even
coverage with a luminous, demi-matte finish. Ultra-lightweight, this
high-tech liquid formula never settles into fine lines, and it melds on
for a no makeup look while full coverage in an instant.
This concealer is enriched with Matrixyl 3000, which contains peptides
to support the skin’s youthful appearance and elasticity, and Japanese
green tea revitalizes and helps reduce the look of fine lines. It’s
infused with Litchiderm™—derived from lychee fruit—which protects
against dehydration, while sodium hyaluronate helps the skin attract and
retain moisture, resulting in a brighter-looking complexion.
This stuff sounds like a miracle, right? Well, I don't think it is. First off, the shade range is pretty bad. There are only 2 warm and 6 neutral shades. I picked up the lightest shade called Fair Neutral, which is still a little yellow for me. I need something more cool as it's better for my pale skin. The plus side is that it is fairly brightening and it does cover up my dark circles pretty well, so the coverage is good. However, even after applying it with my Beauty Blender and setting it right away with powder, it creases within 10 minutes and it applies patchy. I don't know why, because I always moisturize well, I prime beforehand, and I use my Beauty Blender. I've used this everyday since I got it, and every single time it's been patchy and has creased almost instantly. I have to check myself in the mirror constantly before I leave for work to fix it and as the day goes on, it makes my under eyes look dry and dehydrated. I also have to mention, this stuff smells exactly like nail polish remover. I don't know why, but it's so overpowering and I find that really bizarre.
You would think that a brand like Urban Decay would bring something out that's amazing because I had yet to try something of theirs I just straight up didn't like. This also is a $28 concealer, and that's incredibly expensive for what I think it is. Even with the extra 15% off, I say save your money and get something else. I love Urban Decay as a brand. Their eyeshadows are my favorite, their eyeliners are amazing and their setting sprays are great as well. I really think they missed the mark with this concealer. I will find a use for it because I don't like returning makeup, but I will never, ever repurchase.
Have you used this concealer before? If so, what do you think of it?
