There has been a lot of hype around this new release from Urban Decay so I thought I would give it a try….
I love Urban Decay as a brand and own so many products from them that I use on a daily basis such as their Naked Skin concealer, their new Vice Lipsticks and their setting sprays. And let’s not forget their eyeshadows which are one of the best.
This is a full-coverage, waterproof, matte foundation that lasts all night. Sounds like a winner to me…specially for events. The packaging is amazing, the range of colors is amazing, the fact that it comes with a pump is amazing. I chose the shade 3.0 which is a light yellow shade. The price for this foundation is $49.
While this product claims to give a flawless finish, I disagree.
I really tried to love this product. I tried exfoliating my skin before, and really moisturizing my skin. I have normal/combination skin.
Sadly, it had a really cakey, powdery finish. So I tried mixing it with oil. As soon as the oil touched the foundation, it oxidized and turned completely orange.
Let’s see a close-up of my skin after only 4 hours of wear under different lighting.
- In Natural Lighting:
You can see it cracking around my mouth, It emphasized my texture and you can still see the acne scars on my cheeks.
2. Flash Photography:
I look like I put white powder all over my face. (P.s. I did not set this foundation).
3. Indoor lighting:
It looks really cakey and it actually gave me wrinkles around my eyes and my mouth. Let’s just say, it felt good to take this off.
As much as I wanted to like this foundation, it is going back to the store. I will exchange it with the NARS All Day luminous Weightless Foundation. I will be doing a review on that one once I test it out.
