Today, I am going to introduce you to my favourite concealer: Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer! I likely wouldn’t have tried this product, had I not received a free sample with a make-up order from Debenhams. I’m really glad I got to try it, as I absolutely loved it and went on to buy a full-size version.
The concealer comes in a sleek tube which shows the particular shade contained inside (see photos below). I really like this feature, as it helps you to identify what shades might be most suitable for you when you are browsing in a store.
The concealer itself is applied using a long handled doe-foot applicator. The product can be dotted directly on to your face and blended using fingers, a brush or a beauty blender. Alternatively, you can apply the concealer to your hand and dot on to your face from there.
What I love about this product is that it is extremely light-weight, yet it offers complete coverage. Whenever I wear it, I’m not aware of the product being on my skin as it so light in texture. It glides on smoothly and blends in effortlessly, with no caking.
I normally use a separate liquid concealer under my eyes and a tube stick concealer for blemishes. However, I find that this concealer can be used anywhere; it is brightening and light enough to use under eyes, whilst also offering complete coverage elsewhere on the face. You also need very, very little product for coverage, which means that the tube will last a long time.
The concealer is available in a range of skin tones (fair, light, medium-light, medium, medium-dark, dark and deep). I believe that more shades have come out in the USA so hopefully they will be released in the UK soon too. Each shade has a choice of undertones as well, including warm (more yellowish), cool (more pink-based) and neutral (neither too yellow, nor too pink). I have the shade ‘medium-light neutral’ and it is a great match for my skin tone.
The concealer is part of Urban Decay’s ‘Naked Skin’ line, which also contains liquid foundation, powder foundation, powder, finishing powder (loose and pressed both available) and complexion perfectors.
The concealer retails for £17.50 and is available from Debenhams, House of Fraser and various online retailers. It is quite expensive for a concealer, but as mentioned above, only a little product is needed for great coverage.
