If any of you know me personally, you’ll know that the thing I dislike the most about my face are my dark undereye circles. Concealer is that one make-up item I try not to leave the house without, if I can help it. After much deliberation on whether to buy yet another concealer I decided it was time to give the Naked Skin Concealer from Urban Decay a go.
I purchase this concealer from Feel Unique for £17.50 and chose the colour “Medium Dark Warm”. This concealer comes in eight different shades with warm, neutral and cool undertones.
Naked Skin is packaged in a tube and comes with a doe-foot applicator. I actually really like these types of applicators although some people may find them unhygienic.
When I first applied this concealer I noticed that it is very lightweight on the skin. It blends easily and doesn’t sink into fine lines and pores. The best part for me is the fact that it doesn’t feel drying on the skin which I experience with most other concealers. It provides medium coverage and it lasts around 8 hours on the skin. If I wanted a full coverage look I would use a corrector before the concealer to neutralise dark pigmentation. The colour Medium Dark Warm is absolutely perfect for my NC44 skin tone and I love that it has a strong yellow undertone.
As you can see from the picture above the majority of my dark circles were concealed but even after two layers this didn’t get rid of my dark circles completely. If I wanted my make-up to look really flawless I’d layer this over an orange based corrector or another concealer.
In terms of how this feels on the skin, this concealer is very similar to my Maybelline Fit Me concealer, however it has better coverage and doesn’t crease as much. There are a lot of reviews stating that this concealer doesn’t crease at all and to be honest whilst it did crease significantly less than most other concealers, it still creased a little bit into my expression lines. I didn’t find this to be a major issue however, it’s nothing a bit of blending with my finger can’t solve.
Overall I think Urban Decay have got it right with this concealer. It is lightweight, non-drying and gives moderate coverage with minimal creasing. It has slowly become a staple for me and I will be repurchasing it after I’m done with this tube.
