Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer

I am not one to give in to hype, but when your favorite makeup brand makes a product that so many people rave about, I just can’t pass it up. So I may be a little bit late to hop on the bandwagon, but it is always interesting to see whether this concealer is as good as everyone says it is.

Of course Urban Decay is not a cheap brand, but also not the most expensive. Still, at €25.50 this is not an affordable product either. And to be quite honest, I don’t try many high end concealers because there are so many great ones at the drugstore. Some of my recent favorites are for instance by Catrice, LA Girl and Rimmel. So how does this measure up?

The Packaging

This concealer comes is stunning packaging. This concealer is definitely a winner packaging wise. What is especially good about this packaging is the wand. Another great thing about the packaging is the fact that you can clearly see the product through this packaging. That is always a plus.

As I said, the wand is the best part about the packaging. The wand is not just a standard doe foot applicator but has more of a paddle shape. And that paddle shape is what makes this concealer tick. The two flat sides make it easy to spread out the product without double dipping as you can simply flip it over. Ingenious!

The Swatch

I very deliberately didn’t buy a very light shade in this, because I already had so many shades that are super light. And since I like to use concealer on more than just my under eye area, it’s good to have a concealer that is closer to your skin tone rather than super light.

The texture of this concealer is lightweight and very liquidy. And that is another reason why this is a great concealer. It is thin, but not too watery. It blends well, stays put and hardly settles into lines. After applying this I find it looks pretty much seamless and like skin.

The Application

As you can see, this concealer covers what it needs to cover. It makes light work of dark circles, redness and and other discolorations that I may want to cover it up. I love how this says put, but the shade is only right for me for part of the year. By now it’s a little bit too dark, but it works well in the spring and summer. In the summer this is a great one to use if you want to forego foundation as well.

The Conclusion

Yes, the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer is one of the best concealers I have ever tried. I will certainly look into purchasing a lighter shade so I can use this year round. That being said, however, there are many drugstore concealers that I love that work just as well. While the texture of this is unique in my concealer collection, I do feel that you don’t have to spend this much money to find a good concealer.

  1. Loved this post! I’ve heard so may good things about this concealer so I think I’ll need to pick one up, my go to concealer at the moment is the Collection Lasting Perfection! X

  2. I think I am one of the very few people who didn’t get on with this concealer. I found it to be so drying on my under eyes (or maybe they are too dry for it?!?) I’m delighted it worked out for you though 🙂

  3. I really like UD Naked concealer, as well! There was a Bobby Brown tinted undereye brightener that I absolutely loved to use as a concealer under my eyes, but it’s sadly discontinued.

  4. […] Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer – As the temperatures went suddenly summer like over here, I decided to wear some more minimal makeup on those warm days. I tend to just go in with concealer and I went with this one. I really like this concealer, but I have found this shade is still a little bit too dark for me as it oxidizes quite badly on me. […]

  5. […] Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer – I have two concealers to show you this month. I’ve been digging doing a very quick and easy makeup on days off or on some of the hotter days we’ve had so far. There is nothing more I hate than a full face of makeup when it is absolutely sweltering. A touch of concealer will do and I have been using this for doing just that. […]

  6. […] Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer – A much raved about concealer is the Naked Skin by Urban Decay. I have been using this on natural makeup days. It works great. It has a lightweight coverage. The only problem? This oxidizes on me and it turns a little darker than my skin tone. […]

  7. […] Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer – The base product that I have been using is this. Since the weather has been absolutely bonkers this summer (hello heatwave!), I have been going in with a much lighter base. I used to use a BB cream for that purpose, but I ran out of my favorite by The Body Shop and when I went to repurchase it, I found that has been discontinued. So I resorted to my other way of doing a lightweight base: a lightweight concealer on the areas I need it most topped off with a bit of the Maybelline foundation and we’re good to go. […]
