My New Favourite Concealer

Sunday, January 24, 2016

So today I will be talking about a concealer, and for once, it's not the Origins Plantscription...hold for applause...

I've heard so many good things about the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer since it was launched, and as my beloved Origins one was on it's way out, I thought I'd see what the fuss was about. It's described as a weightless concealer which still offers complete coverage, so did it deliver? (The title may give it away...)

I picked mine up in the shade 'light warm' which is my perfect under the eye shade as it's not too pink toned. The shade range is good, the have 8 to chose from, all varying in different tones which is handy. If I were to go back and get one to use for my faec/blemishes I may opt for a shade darker to match my skin better, but I love 'light warm' for brightening my under eyes.

Formula wise, it is very creamy and I find a lot goes a long way. I'll either use my fingers or my Real Techniques contour brush to blend it in and it looks flawless once applied. I've also used it around my nose where I tend to get dry patches and it didn't cling to them or look cakey, so it would be a good one to use on blemishes. It does a good job at covering my dark circles, although on bad days I do have a use a corrector underneath.

Concealer is notorious for creasing under my eyes and I'm happy to report this one doesn't. I do set it with the Soap and Glory Kick Ass Powder to really set it down and it lasts all day. Setting your under eyes is also a great tip if your mascara transfers, most mascara's I try would end up under my eyes but since I've been using a powder I find it doesn't!

This retails for £17.50, so not super cheap but not too pricey either. It's been compared to the Nars Creamy Concealer a lot too, so if you don't want to splurge for that, this would be a good option.
