Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation in 3.25 30ml €35
Claims : All Nighter Liquid Foundation by Urban Decay provides full coverage with a modern matte finish that never looks overdone. Get all-night wear and a blown-out effect you never thought was possible for a flawless-looking complexion that looks amazing and stays that way. Perfect for all-night affairs and other scandalous activities, this revolutionary formula is also comfortable enough to wear every day. While Naked Skin complexion products are demi-matte, All Nighter Liquid Foundation is completely matte-but never flat (and it s oil-free!). Urban Decay loaded this formula with an insane amount of pigment (about three times as much as Naked Skin Liquid Makeup), so a little goes a long way. There’s no need to build coverage or apply multiple layers. This waterproof, paraben-free formula diffuses light to blur flaws for beautifully perfected skin as it mattifies and absorbs oil to reduce the appearance of shine.
So lets get down to it.
I have played around with this quite a bit. I’ve eventually found that the best way to apply is to use a flat topped kabuki brush & then blend with a sponge. Sponge on it’s own has way too much coverage & a brush on it’s own leave loads of brush strokes. So the two combined work best.
This does give good coverage, I still had some redness around outside of the bridge of the nose. But it can be built up OK.
My pores weren’t very obvious & it blended nicely into my skin. Overall it looked well. Happy Days!! Right? Oh wait…….
I also noticed that it was grabbing onto dry patches I didn’t even know I had & simultaneously was sliding of my T-Zone. Like a literal Oil Slick! Not. Cute! How is that even possible? Surely a foundation should do one or the other. Eventually it was completely gone from my nose & chin.
After a few tries I eventually found the “baking” with loose powder was the only way to get it to last, I got about 10 hours out of it(certainly not “all night”). But it felt very cakey & thick using this method.
Overall I am just not a fan of this foundation. Since it cost so much I am going to keep using it but more as a mixer with other foundations to make them more long lasting or to be a better colour match.
