Have you been hearing as many rave reviews about the Urban Decay All Nighter foundation as I have? I’ve been super curious — especially since I think I have the perfect skin for this foundation. Oily, but not crazy oily. 🙂 So did it stand up to my crazy, baby-filled days?
Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation
I mean, come on, its Urban Decay. Of course they’re going to kill it with the packaging. The bottle is not weighted or metal. It’s made out of some sort of plastic and feels/looks similar to their regular Naked Skin foundation. I personally didn’t mind that — it still looks amazing.
It has a pump, too, which is awesome, and it also shows the foundation through the ‘shattered’ effect of the bottle so that you’ll know when you start to run low. Double win! 🙂 One thing I can tell you right off the bat about this foundation is that if you don’t like it when you can ‘feel’ it on your skin…you had better pass. It’s not a super heavy or sticky feel, but it’s definitely noticeable as you wear it throughout the day. Doesn’t bother me, but do want to point it out. 🙂
So I got the shade 4.0 and before I self tanned it looked like it matched me perfectly…but then would oxidize about a shade more. Nothing glaringly darker, thankfully, but it was noticeable to me. Especially if I had my hair all up. After I self tanned, though, it matched a lot better. It’s annoying to have to try to take into consideration the oxidation, but if you have a Sephora nearby go in store and ask for a sample of the foundation shade you think will match and test it before you buy. 🙂
I typically apply my foundation in sections and make sure the foundation is fully blended in before moving on to the next, so for me having this foundation set so quickly doesn’t really bother me. But if you tend to dot your foundation all over your face and then go blend it in…it can get difficult to blend out seamlessly. I also found that I didn’t like using a Beauty Blender to blend it into my skin. I’ve tried using one twice since receiving this and I noticed so many patches and streaks on my face. No thanks!
Man, does it give you awesome coverage! I think it rivals my most full coverage foundation that I own, I was very impressed with it. As for how long it lasts, I would say this is flawless for a good 6 to 8 hours, and then I notice my oils starting to come through and a few hours later it will start breaking up in common places like my cheeks and chin (That mom life, always snuggling!)
All in all, though, I really do like this All Nighter foundation and say that it IS worth the hype IF you enjoy thick, full coverage foundations. I love wearing it when I want to have a really flawless appearance. It looks amazing in photos, too, so works well for my blogging life!
Have you picked up this foundation? If so, share with me your thoughts below! I’m curious to hear if it oxidizes on your skin, too…or if it’s just me, haha!
