Although I am A Makeup Obsessed Queen, I will be first to admit that I have NEVER EVER went full coverage when it comes to a base. I’m a tinted moisturizer, sheer-to-medium coverage kind of gal. I recently caved in and grabbed the All Nighter Liquid Foundation from Urban Decay. I was feeling a little bold and it looked lonely on my makeup dresser so I decided to give it a little bit of love.
I grabbed this futuristic, badassery in a bottle and put a couple of pumps on the back of my hand and used a Real Techniques Expert Face Brush spritzed with Mac Fix+ and dabbed some of the product on my face and started to blend. At first swipe, I did feel that his foundation went on like a thick creme but still smooth nonetheless. I tried not to let that intimidate me, I kept repeating to myself to step out of my comfort zone. I kept blending until my entire face and neck was evened out. The result was pretty AMAZING! I only needed one of the pumps I had on the back of my hand and it blended like an absolute whimsical dream. It smoothly glides on to create the perfect base for your face. Lawd knows that I live for the dewy, glowy, radiant finishes, but this natural matte finish didn’t fall flat once. This foundation is loyal and didn’t oxidize on me during the 7 hours of wear (thankfully not leaving me to look like an Oompa Loompa). It did start to cake and flake around my nose but that is nothing that a light dusting of setting powder can’t fix so I wont complain.
The Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundations retails for $40.00 for 1oz of product and trust that one pump is enough! a little goes a very long way (Also meaning this bottle will last you forever). This Foundation is DEFINITELY the fullest of coverage. If you’re into the very sheer like myself this will come off as intimidating, but take a chance and try it out. You might fall in love with this type of coverage. It is unreal how perfect it leaves your skin. If you have anywhere near Dry skin or Dry-Combo skin like myself, you MUST prep for this type of foundation, Especially now that the winter months are approaching. Try a rich moisturizer on your face like Kiehl’s ultra face cream for example and let it sink in, followed by a proper primer for extra longevity. I also finished off with Mac Fix+ to give a light dew. I recommend this foundation to anyone who prefers a fuller coverage and to those who want to cover acne scars and even out their skintone. I DO recommend this to those who prefer a sheer coverage as well because this can be used for special occasions and bolder looks. This foundation is perfect for the special days when you want extra flawless skin in photos which is what I will be using it for.
