So during the Sephora sale I got a few things and I actually placed an entire separate order just for this concealer. It's the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer. Good Lord what is with the super long names people? How many adjectives do you need to name a product? Anyway, I totally bought into the hype about it and I have a weakness for concealer so therefore I felt like I needed it. This is part of the Urban Decay "Naked" line. When it came, it was actually a lot smaller than I thought. It's shorter than my NARS Radient Creamy Concealer but just a little less product. The NARS concealer has .22oz and this is .16oz for $1 less. So it's more compact and I do like that about it but it is less product. This retails for $28 for .16oz.
It's a "high coverage concealer that provides buildable, weightless coverage and leaves an invisible, Naked Skin finish." according to the Sephora description. I completely agree with the weightless coverage, it really doesn't feel like anything is on your skin which is great. I can't stand feeling like my skin in smothering or my foundation and concealer is too heavy. It actually goes on somewhat sheer, that kinda freaked me out. However, I blended it with my finger and it gave good coverage without having to build it. So it definitely could be built up but I recommend just using a small amount first and then go from there if you want to add more because you may not need it. Now I only got this to use under my eyes and it's not something I would use for blemishes. Reason being, this is a little more thin than I prefer for blemishes I prefer thicker creams for imperfections. I set this with Laura Mercier brightening powder just a very small amount but it didn't seem like it really needed to be "set". It has a very nice satin "skin like" finish, not shiny or matte but seeing as how the under eye area can crease easily I set it just to be on the safe side.
I really can't compare this to anything, it's very unique. I was running out of my NARS Radient Creamy Concealer and wanted to try this. The NARS one is thicker and heavier but has a very nice finish and I do really like it. The applicator bit the dust quick though on it so I have to use disposable doe foot wands to get out product. Like I said NARS is $1 more and you get more product so there's that but it is heavier. The Urban Decay major selling point and the thing that makes it so unique is just how weightless it is. I mean like air people. So that is the best part about it to me. I also really like the color I got. I got Light Warm. It was a really good pale yellow based concealer and I find that NARS Custard although yellow based is too dark. So if you like pale yellow based concealers and you're in the light shade range possibly fair, this is a good one to try.
I'll sum this up as best I can and give you all the high points first: it's thin but good coverage, it's weightless (again, like air), its buildable should you need more coverage, it's a skin like finish, it has a good pale yellow color that is hard to find for fair to light skin tones.
Low points: $28 is a little steep for it to be as small as it is. Especially since the product itself is thin and not thicker. (You get more product in MAC Pro Longwear Concealer which is liquid and $20 for .30oz which is almost double this) This also only has 8 shades.
So my final verdict is that, for the color that I got and the formula, I think this is a great product. It's really different, unique, and feels really good on the skin.
Shade: Light Warm
