I have been on a huge Urban Decay kick recently and brought few a few things from them. One of the things I was most excited to get my hands on was the Naked Skin Concealer. I have heard nothing but great things about this concealer for using it conceal and brighten the under eyes so I finally decided it was time to order it and I haven't looked back since - goodbye dark circles!
The Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer is available in ten different shades with different options for warm, cool and neutral skin tones. This concealer is a weightless complete coverage concealer with build-able coverage having a luminous semi-matte finish. It claims to have a second skin effect and never settling into fine lines. Also available in the Naked Skin range is a powder and foundation, I cant wait to try the foundation next!
This concealer is massively hyped about and I honestly thought I was going to hate it because everyone loved the NARS Radiance Creamy Concealer and that didn't really do anything for me, if anything it made my under eyes look worse! But, I have fallen completely in love with this concealer and I could go as far as saying that if I would only use one concealer for the rest of my life, I would be happy to only have this! The first thing that I love about it is the applicator, it is a doe foot but it is slightly longer and flatter than a traditional one which I find makes it easier to apply the product to my under eyes.
I have been using this mainly under my eyes but also on blemishes lately and I have been loving the coverage. When I apply this under my eyes in particular I use a damp beauty blender and say goodbye to any signs of tiredness and dark circles. No matter how much sleep I get, I have always had dark circles and struggled to conceal and brighten but this concealer does incredible things to my under eyes! I also find that it doesn't crease throughout the day as long as I make sure to set it with powder and make sure it has been blended out well. I also like to use this on blemishes as you can get a full coverage with this concealer if you build it up, it lasts all day on the skin and doesn't cake up. I find it difficult to find a concealer that can provide full coverage while being lightweight on the skin and this is that concealer for me. This concealer really does look like my skin but better once applied as it has a natural finish.
I have pretty pale skin and decided on the Light Warm shade which wasn't the shade that I actually wanted as I wanted Fair Neutral and it was out of stock everywhere and I was too inpatient to wait. But the shade is actually a great colour match and I am happy that I went for Light Warm in the end. This concealer does have a similar scent to the MAC Prolong Wear Concealer which I personally like but I know a few people who aren't a fan so that is something to keep in mind if you are thinking about purchasing. But once it is on the skin the scent is undetectable.
The Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer retails for £17.50, if you don't mind waiting a few more days for it to be delivered, I would recommend ordering from the Urban Decay website as you get free delivery and they often have great samples available!
