Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation


Having been wearing foundation for about ten years now, nothing pleases me more than one that works well. I've tried what feels like every type of skin base out there, from CC creams to tinted moisturisers all the way to the complete full coverage foundations. As someone with combination skin and pigmentation flaws I love foundation that can provide everything I want to cover. Urban Decay have just released their All Nighter Liquid Foundation* (£27.00) and I was pleased to see that it's a full coverage foundation that doesn't need several layers to see the effects. The foundation itself is made with high-tech polymer gel system, light-diffusing pigments to blur flaws and a special blend of next-generation silicones to provide the highest coverage.

The All Nighter Liquid Foundation is an oil-absorbing, waterproof formula that is made to last all day and night without touch ups. With 24 shades available, there really is a shade for everyone. Urban Decay created this foundation in mind that no matter what you're doing or where you're going, you won't need to touch this up as it was made to blend flawlessly with long-lasting coverage. It's a matte finish foundation which better for women like myself who have combination skin and need a product that can balance out the look of dry skin with excess oil. The All Nighter Liquid Foundation is quite pigmented and a little bit goes a long way and using my Beauty Blender, it blends quite well into the contours around my face and under the eyes. It has three times more pigment than the Naked Skin Liquid Makeup which I'm yet to try and hand on heart, this is the most pigmented foundation I've ever used, which has taken a bit of getting used to.

The packaging is sleek and different to the plain foundation bottles that surround my makeup desk. They're taller and look more expensive than Estée Lauder's Double Wear that actually costs more. It looks like it's made from metallized gunmetal and has asymmetric cutouts but is surprisingly light which completely threw me off as I was expecting a heavy bottle. The pump inside is airless to make sure you can get every last bit out of the bottle which means less waste and you get more for your money. It's recommended that you buff this into your face with the Urban Decay Pro Foundation brushes but I'm yet to try a brush from UD that isn't already included in one of the eyeshadow palettes. You can set the face with one of the Urban Decay Setting Sprays which I do with whatever makeup I'm wearing.

Overall I've really enjoyed wearing this foundation and although I need to get used to wearing a full coverage foundation again, it will be great in Winter when I'm a little paler. I have shades 2.0 and 2.5 and they're slightly too light for me at the moment as when I picked them out I forgot that I was more tanned from V Festival and holidaying over the past few months. Since the bottle is so light it's a great for travelling with and even if you don't use colour correcting products it's safe to say it covers most of your flaws fabulously.
