Review: Urban Decay all nighter foundation

Another month- another foundation! I have to say I  go though foundations very quickly. 1-2 months and I'm done. This time I would like to review my new Urban Decay all nighter waterproof long-wear liquid foundation. As you can see I used already half of the bottle and I am ready to share with you my thoughts. Let's begin.
Price: £27 
All Nighter Liquid Foundation provides full coverage with a modern matte finish that never looks overdone. Get serious long-lasting wear and a blown-out effect you never thought was possible. Perfect for all-night affairs and other scandalous activities, our revolutionary formula is also comfortable enough to wear every day.
Packaging. Love it! I can really say this is the best foundation packaging I have ever seen! Bottle looks gorgeous and very expensive. But what I love the most is airless pump. This is a "must" for every foundation! It helps to get every last bit of the product so you don't waste anything! Also you can see through the bottle how much of foundation you still have left.
Colour. Compliments to Urban Decay for all of these shades! It has 24 different shades so I'm sure you'll find one for you as well. Mine is 2.0. Be careful when choosing the colour because after it oxidizes- gets darker. When I got my foundation I was scared that it's too light for me but after a few minutes it matched my skin skin tone perfectly. You can check how does it look here.
Make up sponge or brush? Sponge only! It's much easier to blend and foundation looks much more natural. With the brush you get very cakey effect and seems like you haven't finished applying it properly. In alternative way you can apply with a brush and blend it with a sponge after.
Overall. Even though I already finished half of the bottle of this foundation I still can't decide either I like it or not. I love the finished effect- my skin looks smooth, it covers all my redness and looks perfect... but not for a long time. I'm not sure if it's just not good for my skin but it is definitely not the long lasting foundation. For me it lasts maximum 4-5 hours and starts creasing afterwards. It's also too much matte for my liking and my skin gets dry very quickly even though I have quite oily skin.
I need to wear make up every day at work so it means that foundation for me should last at least 10 hours... This Urban Decay all nighter foundation unfortunately doesn't last for that long but it's perfect for going out, taking pictures or just going anywhere where you're not going to spend all day.
Am I going to buy it again? Probably not. I loved my Chanel foundation (you can read review here) much more than this one but I'm definitely going to use it until the last pump. I feel that this just might be wrong for my skin so you should give it a try.
Thank you for coming by!

  1. I've heard nothing but praise for this foundation so it was refreshing to see a more lukewarm review for a change. Chanel do make amazing foundations, I fully agree there :)

    1. I know! It's such a praised product but nothing so much special about it... But maybe it's just not for me :)
