Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation Review

Hey Everyone!
I had been really wanting to try the Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation for awhile now because it claims that it is: full coverage, long wearing, it is a matte finish, waterproof and that it is oil free. I love a great full coverage foundation that won’t break me out and was excited to test it out!

The Packaging
First off, we need to talk about the obvious: the packaging! It is simply gorgeous and who wouldn’t be proud to display that on their vanity? The gunmetal packaging on the box as well as the bottle looks edgy yet sleek and modern at the same time. I do appreciate that it comes with a pump because not all foundation come with one and that can get pretty messy. It also allows you to use up all of the product inside of the bottle.

Even the packaging inside the box is beautiful!

The Formula
Urban Decay claims that this formula has about three times more pigment than the Naked Skin Liquid Makeup. Applying multiple layers is not necessary because a little bit of this foundation goes a long way! They also claim that the “waterproof formula diffuses light to blur flaws for beautifully perfected skin, while it mattifies and absorbs oil to reduce the appearance of shine.” Another reason that I was drawn to this foundation is because it offers blurring technology which helps me deal with the larger pores around my cheeks, closer to my nose.

I chose 3.0 because it is described as ‘light with soft warm undertones.’ I have a very yellow undertone to my skin and I am also in the neutral family which can be hard to find a foundation that matches me perfectly. It does oxidize and I suggest going into your local Sephora to swatch them out in-person. Also, another tip is to wait for the formula to actually dry before making up your mind! I may have to add in a drop of my other yellow-based foundation to this one but it isn’t something that I can’t fix myself. 

The foundation was still wet in this photo.

Tips For Application
I would suggest working quickly with this foundation when applying it because it does dry quickly but it is not drying on the skin! Another tip is to use a beauty blender rather than a brush because it is a thicker formula but it does not feel heavy on the skin. Also, if you have dry skin, make sure to really exfoliate, moisturize and prep your skin before wear or you are setting up yourself for disappointment! I have oily skin and I love a good matte foundation but it is hard to find one that lasts all day on my type of skin. 

I did really like the results that this foundation delivered but I do find the price tag a little steep. If you are interested in purchasing this foundation, it comes in 24 shades and is $49 CAD on the Sephora web site. I also found myself going through foundation that didn’t come with a pump a lot quicker than I had wanted to and by using less of this foundation to achieve the results I had been wanting, this was worth it!

I can’t wait to wear this in the fall and winter months with a bold, bright lip! 

Until next time,
