This review will be on a brand new release from Urban Decay. It is an addition in their existing “Naked” collection which previously included Naked skin foundation, BB cream, glosses and the ever popular eye palettes.
This Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer is the part of the Urban Decay Spring 2015 collection which includes a bunch of new eye shadows and the Sheer revolution lipsticks( Stay tuned for a preview post coming your way very soon)
About the product:
An innovative, high-coverage concealer that provides buildable, weightless coverage and leaves an invisible, Naked Skin finish.
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.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
What else you need to know:
Naked Skin Concealer comes in a range of meticulously calibrated shades that coordinate with Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Powder Foundation. The shade-matching system provides a clear starting point for finding your perfect shade: the first part represents shade intensity, and the second indicates shade undertone.
Practical and travel-friendly, this formula comes in a gorgeous bottle that’s like a smaller version of Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Liquid Makeup component. The modern flocked applicator lays down just the right amount of product, and it’s soft enough to use on the delicate skin under the eyes.
Price : $28
My Experience with Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer:
I am highly impressed with this product. This product exceeded my expectation and much more.
This concealer comes in a thick plastic tube with a thin 2-sided wand applicator. The packaging is very practical, functional and travel-friendly. The shade of the product is reflected on the outside of the tube.
This concealer comes in total of 8 different shades with various undertones. Urban decay has made it exceptionally easy to find your shade as the name of the concealer reflects exactly the shade you will get. I picked up the shade Medium-Light Neutral which turned out to be a perfect match for me. Since it leans more toward the neutral undertone and my skin is more pink, it also provides a brightening effect wherever used.
The other shades are Fair neutral, Light Neutral, Light Warm, Medium Neutral and so on and so forth, all the way up to dark.
Texture & Coverage:
This concealer is of the right consistency. Neither too thick nor too runny. It spreads and blends easily and gives a beautiful matte finish once it sets. I do find the best way to apply this is to blend it with a concealer buffing brush; something like Sigma P 80. I also tried using fingers and my favorite beauty blender to apply this; but found that those methods wiped away more products than it deposited.
This is a medium to full coverage concealer. A little dab is all you need to cover a good amount of area. I use it on my dark circles, redness and pigmentation spots on my face; it camouflages them completely.
Since it sets to a matte finish, I do not even the feel the need to set my under eye with a powder, which is something I would never do as I do have dry skin overall, but my eye area is incredibly oily and concealers tend to turn shiny looking on me within hours of wear. But if you wanted to, you could most definitely use a powder on it which will give the staying power an extra boost.
I also use this to prime my eyelids for eye shadow; it hides all the darkness and visible veins on it and gives a perfect smooth canvas to make shadow colors pop.
The finish stayed beautifully matte all day long which is about 8 hours for me and it never creased , budged or faded. It did not accentuate lines around my eyes and it never needed any touch up for looking shiny.
It feels very lightweight on the skin. It does not have any off-putting scent. It just smells very “makeup” like which I happen to like.Overall, two thumbs up from me. I love everything about this concealer from the beautiful matte finish to the staying power to the perfect shade match I got. Usually, I always have a problem with greasy, shiny looking under eyes whenever I use concealers but this product gets rid of that concern.
The only con I will state is that, due to its super matte finish for those who have dry eye area might find it even more drying. I highly recommend this otherwise.
Pros of Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer:
• Right consistency.
• Dries to a matte finish.
• Spreads and blends smoothly.
• Variety of shades available with variety of undertones. Easy to find your match
• No off-putting scent.
• Amazing staying power.
Cons of Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer:
• The matte finish may feel a bit drying for extremely dry skin; but I personally never faced this problem wherever I applied this concealer.
