As many of you may know, I’m a big fan of Charlotte Tilbury’s Retoucher Concealer pen and it has been my go-to concealer for the past few months now. However, when I first started using it, I found it very light and more suited to a daytime makeup look, and therefore wasn’t 100% sold on it being the perfect concealer for me.
As a result, when I was in Urban Decay recently, I happened upon their NAKED SKIN Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer and decided to give it a try. Lots of bloggers love this concealer so I had very high hopes. And when my Charlotte Tilbury ran out last week, it gave me the perfect opportunity to put it to the test.
I’m a sucker for Urban Decay products in general, as you all know their eyeshadows are my favourite, and I’m just a little bit obsessed with some of their lipsticks too. I haven’t tried any of their foundations or concealer’s before though so I was interested to see whether this would live up to my expectations.
After testing a few shades out in the store, I decided to opt for shade Med-Light. First impressions are that this may be slightly on the dark side for me, but easily fixed I know.
Apart from loving the rose gold packaging, which is obviously important, I really love the applicator on this concealer. It is so easy to use and the brush head moves when applying.
The consistency is rich and creamy, and while not thick as such, it has a much thicker consistency than the Charlotte Tilbury concealer and therefore I felt I had to do a bit more work when blending. However, once done, the coverage that you get with this is just incredible. Blemishes, dark circles, you name it, covered!
My only negative, if you could even call it a negative, is that it starts to dry very quickly. So unless you blend straight away after application, it can start to drag and pull your makeup.
I was concerned at first that this may be a little too heavy for a daytime makeup look, but actually, after using it for a few days it has really grown on me. It’s definitely different than what I’ve been wearing, but different does not mean worse, and I think this could become a new favourite.
I like good coverage with my foundations and concealers and I think I could be on to a winner with this one. It’s much more along the lines of MAC’s studio finish concealer in terms of consistency which for years was my favourite concealer. So I’m happy to have now discovered one I like just as much.
It’s €22 so very much in line with similar concealers on the market, and in my opinion, a good concealer is always worth investing in.
