Urban Decay’s Naked Complete Coverage Concealer is one of, if not my very favorite concealer. So when Urban Decay unveiled their new All Nighter Waterproof Full Coverage Concealer, I was already giving it the side eye. It was trying to impress me with it’s fancy outfit with laser cutouts, and I love that stuff, so I was intrigued.
So…does this concealer really last all night? Is it truly full coverage? Waterproof?
Shade Range 7/10
With 14 shades, the range is moderate but not necessarily diverse. The medium range shades are a little too similar and I would have traded some of those out for more dark shades.
Per the usual, they threw in one super dark shade, preceded by a few medium-dark shades.
These shades may seem consistent with the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer ones at first glance but they do differ, despite their names. In Naked Skin Concealer, I wear Light Warm to brighten my under eye area but find that a bit too dark in the All Nighter Formula, instead option for for Fair Warm, which is borderline too light.
There is no doubt that these are pigmented. They offer true full coverage, so no complaints there
As someone with dry skin, the only way I can apply this is with a damp Beautyblender. It’s so quick-drying that it borders on immovable.
Though I haven’t tested it’s 24 hour claim, this definitely holds up far beyond an 8 hour workday. This is perhaps one of the product’s strongest suits.
While the laser cut “cage” around the tube looks freaking baller dot com, I suspect it’s to blame for the very little product inside.
At $29 for 0.12 oz, the All Nighter Concealer is honestly a terrible value. It may not seem like it but let me tell you why. For the same price, you could get far more product in many comparable formulas. Don’t believe me?
Overall Score 75%
- High pigment makes for truly full coverage
- Very long-lasting.
- A little goes a long way
- Very little product for the money
- Best suited to oily skin types
- Can appear dry
- Can crease if you get too much product on the under eye
- Completely immovable once dry so have to work fast
I had 2 of my fellow makeup artists who both have very oily skin test out for me and here is their oily girl take!
“I compared to Tarte Shape Tape for coverage but I prefer Shape Tape to this. The shade range was off to me. The fair was too light and the light was too dark.”
– Melissa, light skin tone, 2.5 in Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation, skin type: oily
“As you know I love matte everything but I do feel like this concealer one is definitely too matte for underneath the eye area and dries extremely too fast. Since it dries so quickly, it’s hard to blend out if you get too much product. My suggestion is to start with a little bit of product and then slowly build. Also I feel that you get a little jipped with this particular concealer compared to the naked original concealer. I feel like there is more product in there, or maybe it’s because of the shape of the bottle. I have used the concealer as a all over foundation and liked it way better that way versus and under eye concealer. I can also see using it as a spot concealer on oily skin or to cover up hyperpigmentation if you have oily skin. I do feel that the color choices are a little odd and not the same as the original naked concealer. I felt like with the deeper skin tone colors, I had to do a lot of mixing and custom coloring to get a decent match.
When used as a foundation, I saw extreme shine breaking through probably within four and a half hours, which is not bad on my face. I feel this is definitely one of those concealers where I would 100% use a Beautyblender versus a brush, just to help dilute it a little bit more so it spreads out evenly.”
–Danielle, deep skin tone, skin type: very oily
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it and I still much prefer the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer to this. If you’re incredibly oily and don’t mind a matte formula with lighting fast dry down, you may enjoy these new Urban Decay concealers.
