Urban decay naked concealer- Honest review

The urban decay naked concealer was recommended to me as I was looking for something that was light and fitted perfectly on my skin, in other words a formula that looks and feels like a second skin.

And the urban decay concealer matched that description so I had to check it out!

Urban decay state:

‘Hide even your most scandalous flaws. Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer gives you buildable, even coverage with a luminous, demi-matte finish. Ultra lightweight, this high-tech formula melds like a second skin effect and gives you full coverage in an instant’.

Quick overview:

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Provides good coverage
  • A little goes a long way
  • Suitable for a range of skin types
  • Good lastage

Cons

  • A little pricey for the amount packed

How wide is the shade selection?

The weightless complete coverage concealer has currently around 14 shades, which to me is pretty decent. I’d say they mainly consist of neutral and warm undertones.

The concealers deepest shade is ‘extra deep neutral’ and the fairest is ‘fair neutral’ with the rest in between. In the middle you have the ‘medium dark warm’.

The medium light neutral is probably the closest match to my skin tone but still sometimes requires a little mixing with another shade depending on the season.

How does it feel on the skin?Urban decay naked concealer

Once I had applied it, it didn’t feel like I was wearing anything, it was lightweight and didn’t suffocate my skin.

I feel like the skin just under your eye is usually quite sensitive and pretty thin which would mean products could start to appear heavy and crease but thankfully that wasn’t the case with this formula.

Coverage

When it came to the coverage part, at first I was a little skeptical, because of how watery the formula was but luckily my doubts were wrong.

This concealer easily covers redness with a single layer and with under eye darkness it does require another layer but it’s expectable with the lightness of the formula.

A small amount does go a long way! It does even out the skin pretty well especially if you have the correct shade. It can easily provide you with a full coverage as it’s easily buildable too!

I have combination skin and found this product to work great with my skin. It didn’t bring out any oiliness apart from towards the end but that’s fine and neither did it dry my skin out.

So I definitely think it’s suitable for any skin types. It’s also a demi matte finish, formula which is in-between dewy and matte, so maybe that’s why.

Lastage

The lastage is another great thing about this product, staying put the whole time I was out and about, which was approximately 7 hours. I did set it with a powder to ensure maximum stay power.

Without the setting powder, the concealer started to melt towards the end so setting it surely does provide the best results.

Ingredients

The urban decay naked concealer is vegan formulated and I thought I’d mention the green tea that is used in this formula. The Japanese green tea revitalizes and helps the complexion appear younger and brighter by also reducing fine lines. It’s also infused with lichiderm which is derived from lychee fruit. Pretty cool!

Blendability

Another great aspect of this concealer was that it blends super easily. Whether you use your finger or a beauty blender. I preferred the beauty blender as it seems like the finger encourages the oiliness of my skin to come out, more so in warm weathers.

Overall I would buy this concealer again and recommend it for all skin types. It didn’t crease and was lightweight but still managed to cover nicely. Blending and applying was effortless too. The only thing is it’s a bit pricey for the amount packed but worth it.

Do you use concealers? What concealer do you currently use?

Have a great day!!! 🙂

    Thanks for your review of Urban Decay’s Naked Concealer. I also like their line of face products a lot. I haven’t yet tried this concealer, but your description of the way it wears reminds me of their Naked foundation, which is one of my favorites. I’m surprised I haven’t tried this yet, but it sounds like a great concealer. Thanks for the review – looking forward to checking it out!
