Urdan Decay All Nighter Foundation First Impression
Shade 3.25 Light Neutral
I'm so excited for this foundation that I had to try it out as soon as I got it (well I came last night, I actually had to talk myself out of doing a wear test while I slept lol). I really like the regular liquid Naked Skin foundation , but I have to admit it wears off my oily skin pretty quickly :(. In doing a little research before falling hook-line-and-sinker I saw the All Nighter Foundation is Matte where as the Naked Skin foundation is Demi-Matte. Here's to hoping that makes a difference for us oily skinned girls.
This foundation is very full coverage. It covers my redness from my acne and the unevenness from a mixture of too much sun and acne scares. If this wasn't a first impression (and I wasn't in a hurry--which I often am for work) I would have used a little bit of concealer and some sitting powder. I like that I can get very full coverage in one step. Those without as much as I have to cover can most likely skip the concealer and powder. I'm very oily and I've noticed very minimal shine after 6.5 hours. If I had used a setting powder I think that could have been eliminated. My nose has the smallest amount of shine, but its not even that obvious. If I were in a hurry I could skip the powder and concealer with confidence.
This is after I just put it on, on the way to work. Its a little obvious outside that its a bit too light for me, Its not too bad though. A little bronzer might help.
Right after I got to work. 5 Minute commute :)
I put this foundation on my bare skin (after washing my face), no primmer, not moisturizer etc. Only thing I put on top of it was blush. I was in a bit of a hurry so I kept my makeup look very simple this morning. The blush is one of the Marc Jacob Air Brush blushes, Eyeshadow is from Moon Dust palette, mascara is Lancôme Grandiose in waterproof. Please ignore/forgive my awkward faces. I wanted to show very raw pictures of my face. I've always had acne on my face sometimes worse than now and sometimes better. I wanted to show coverages of the redness and unevenness that comes with a life of acne.
I have this in shade 3.25 Light Neutral. As you'll see its a bit light for me. Despite wearing tons of sun screen I end up getting a lot of sun in the summer. What can I say I love the pool/swimming lol. I was 1.0 in the Naked Skin Foundation until the summer. I did recently buy it in 3.25 for the summer, before I knew this was coming out. I may do a comparison of the two. From this first impression I think this is lighter in color than the Naked Skin Foundation.
Sorry my comparisons do not line up exactly but should be able to get the idea.
After 6.5 Hours
The left is this morning, the right is now, 6.5 hours later. The lighting makes me look a bit shiny but its the lights. There is a small bit of shine, foundation missing off my nose. Not bad at all for the amount of oil my skin has! Staring at this picture my blush may be a tad lighter but still looks fine in person. I can't complain at all with the staying power!! Looking forward to trying a longer test.
First Impression Recap
I"ve been wearing this foundation for 6.5 hours and it looks almost exactly the same as when I put it on. I'm really impressed as even the longest wearing foundations are visibly blotchy by 4 to 5 hours. After really checking my face I noticed the smallest amount of shine on my nose, its so small I can hardly tell. I could easily address this was a little powder, but really its not even enough to worry about. My oiliest part of my face--my T-Zone looks as good as it did this morning. Even my blush is still intact, which is usually eaten up by oil 3-4 hours later max!! It doesn't even matter if its supposed to be a stain or longer wearing blush. Today is a short day at work so I'll be taking off my makeup to head to the pool. I'm really curious how long it will last, I'll try it again on my next full work day to see if it really can last 10 plus hours. I would be curious to hear your thoughts. Are you going to try it?
Thanks for reading.
P.S. please go easy on all the silly faces I made in the making. After all it was to show off the foundation. lol, at least that's what I'm telling myself.
