I bought the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer a few months ago, which I hauled HERE, after seemingly every YouTuber/ Blogger and their mamas were using it. I had to see what the fuss was about. Concealer and foundation are the products I am probably the most fickle with; I’m always hunting for something better.
“Hide even your most scandalous flaws. Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer gives you buildable, even coverage with a luminous, demi-matte finish. Ultra lightweight, this high-tech formula melds like a second skin to give you full coverage in an instant. For complete coverage, just keep building; no matter how much you apply, Naked Skin Concealer always blends beautifully and NEVER settles into fine lines.”
“We loaded Naked Skin Concealer with lots of ingredients that are good for your skin. Matrixyl 3000 contains anti-wrinkle peptides to improve skin’s youthful appearance and elasticity. Japanese green tea revitalizes and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines. Litchiderm™ (derived from lychee fruit) protects against dehydration, resulting in a brighter, more radiant complexion. And sodium hyaluronate helps skin attract and retain moisture.”
Both quoted excerpts were taken from the Urban Decay website (HERE), no changes were made.
The outer packaging is sleek and classy. Upon first glance/touch it feels like a glass bottle, but as I tap my nails against it, I’m pretty sure it’s just clear plastic. This takes away from the luxurious ‘pricey’ feel to the product, but adds durability and travel friendly qualities. So really, which is more important? The stopper within the bottle is super tight, but I have to really pull hard to get the applicator out, and sometimes it splatters everywhere if I pull too hard. That being said, because it is so tight, it leaves the perfect amount of product on the doe-foot applicator to apply a nice, even layer of concealer under your eyes, and on the high points of your face. The doe foot applicator is a paddle shape; flat on both sides and curved along the top making it easy to spread the product.
This concealer truly is weightless, I cannot feel it on my skin, it doesn’t crease (though I always set with powder regardless) or settle into my fine lines. Yet, the crazy part is that the coverage is still fantastic! Once this concealer is blended in, you can’t even tell you’ve applied anything, except that your under eye circles have magically disappeared, and you suddenly look bright and more awake.
The shade range kind of sucks to be honest. There are only 11 shades in the range, and I found it difficult to chose one that would suit my skin tone. I chose Fair Neutral, which ended up being an almost white shade. It worked great when I was very fair for highlighting under my eyes, and the centre of my face. Now that I have a bit of a tan, I think I will pick up Light Neutral, but it is quite a jump in shade.
It’s a tad pricey, at $35CAD from Sephora. Which was a tough pill to swallow considering my love affair with the Maybelline Fit Me concealer, which is $8. Despite the price, I will most likely repurchase when I run out, as I love this one as well.
All in all, I think this concealer is fabulous and worth the hype it’s been recieving over the past year, if you can find a shade that will work for your skin tone.
I hope this review was helpful, and that everyone had a great long weekend to both my fellow Canadians, and my American readers.
