Take Urban Decay Out for an All Nighter
I heard about this after having lunch with a fellow blogger. Her skin looked amazing and this was the catalyst! URBAN DECAY All Nighter Liquid Foundation ($40/1oz @ urbandecay.com, ulta.com) is the latest to come out and this is a, wait for it, full coverage one. Yeah! I’m so used to sheer or medium coverage these days that it’s nice to see a serious one come down the pike.They say that this one won’t quit after just a few hours, hence the name. It has a matte finish but don’t worry, it doesn’t look flat like primer paint, and a little goes a long way. One pump is good for the whole face and because it’s full coverage there’s no need to build up multiple layers.
I used my Artis 6 brush with this one when I first tried it and woah, too much, my face looked a little cakey in different areas, so I tried this Sephora brush and then this one from Cover FX and neither worked well, so I tried a damp Beauty Blender and it did the job nicely. I would advise using a moisturizer before applying this foundation so it goes on smoothly.
And I know it is a small detail but the airless pump really is a great delivery system. Not only does it dispense the right amount each time but it keeps it free from contaminants.
