A great concealer can be hard to find. There are some which claim to do it all – high coverage, creamy texture and crease free but sadly not all of them live up to these expectations. I’ve always been very dubious about trying high end concealers, so I spent a lot of time researching before I took the plunge.
The Urban Decay NAKED Skin concealer is very underrated, I think it’s overshadowed by the hype of the NARS Radiant creamy concealer (which I am yet to try, but is definitely next on my list). The UD concealer claims to give weightless complete coverage, it covers imperfections without looking covered up.
First of all, I would definitely recommend heading to your local UD counter to get colour matched for this product. The shade range is kind of confusing, which is one of the only downsides to this product. I wear the shade light neutral and it’s just right for my fair skin. I much prefer neutral toned concealers, they work well to cover my redness.
The formula of this concealer is really lovely as it is super creamy. A little goes a long way so although this concealer is more pricey at £17.50 this tube has actually lasted me a long time, I’ve had it for 3 months and I’ve still got plenty left. Having dry skin means I have to be quite cautious with concealers as they can sometimes make my skin worse, but this is so gentle and blendable. It sits really nicely on the skin, even under the eyes. I have noticed on my under eye area it can crease a little but if I set it with some powder it definitely stays put.
I would say the coverage is medium/full, you can build the coverage to your liking or sheer it out depending on application. As I’ve already mentioned I suffer a lot with patches of redness and this product works really well to neutralise and cover that. Recently when I’m having a good skin day I literally just apply this concealer to any blemishes or red areas and it evens out my complexion so well that I don’t need to really wear any foundation.
The Urban Decay NAKED Skin concealer is definitely miles above any concealers I’ve tried previously. I’d highly recommend trying it, especially if you have normal/dry skin. The NARS concealer is going to be my next purchase so I’m hoping to do a comparison post in the future – let me know if that’s something you’d be interested in.
