Urban decay all nighter foundation reviews, photo, ingredients – makeupalley cervical mucus in early pregnancy

When I originally bought this product I had combination/oily skin. Which, I believe this foundation is best suited for. Although I prefer initial application with a brush, I do typically go back in with a beauty sponge just to make sure it doesn’t look cakey and to make sure I don’t miss any spots. It’s definitely full coverage and dries down super quick. Now that I have dry skin, I don’t reach for this product as much since it dries out around my nose, around my lips and my under eyes. But if I want a flawless, full coverage look, I do gravitate towards this foundation. I just make sure to apply a ton of moisturizer and primer, prior to the application. This foundation does oxidize a few minutes after application and I do think it’s best if you have some sort of setting spray just to make sure the foundation layers well on top of the skin and doesn’t look cakey.


The packaging is definitely what attracted me to this product, the metallic looking with the caving detail, the pump, and also the fact you can tell how much foundation you have left in the bottle just by looking at the window. For reference I wear shade 3.0, and I’m typically an NC20-25

Being a girl with oily skin, I am always looking for long-wearing foundations that deliver that coveted matte, but healthy, fresh look. Being so not the dewy finish type, I was excited to try this brand and thought why not? First off, I think I got a shade lighter than I my skin tone (I chose the 3.0 with yellow undertones). Should have gone a bit darker, but it’s very tricky buying foundation online, unless you are familiar with the product color range. I apply my foundation with a brush by MUA (not Make Up Alley) I think it’s an acronym for Makeup Artists, and found that this product was quite hard to spread. It seems to dry rather quickly and I prefer one that allows you to take your time and build if you need to. I found the dry quality hard to deal with and added some spray primer to the brush, but it didn’t improve the application process. Once on, my skin looked papery and dull, not fresh and bright as with my usual foundation. It wore quite well throughout the day, but amazingly, despite using Becca primer for oily skin and a matte finishing spray, I looked a bit overly dewy within a few hours. I added some bronzer to even out my skin and make up for the too light color, but my skin still looked dull and cakey, not a good look. I love the UD line of products and its image, but this one was a real disappointment, though on the positive side it did stay put all day. Needless to say, I wouldn’t buy again. P.S. I gave this a two lippie only because it does live up to the long wear claim.

I’m almost through my first one and have tested this one throughout all four seasons and I’ve got to say it stays matte throughout all weather conditions and the coverage remains perfect throughout the whole day, except for some pigmentation correctors I don’t need to use concealer. The only downside is that from the second you’ve got dry patches or flaky or uneven skin you really have to step up your prepping game with a lot of moisturiser and essential oils and even then the foundation can get patchy throughout the day, making the uneven texture stand out. The redness and spots are covered but it’s noticeable your skin isn’t perfect. That the only downside though, once you’ve gotten propperly matched at the beauty counter this foundation can be used as a full duty concealer or can be applied only to the areas where you tend to need it- which is great because this foundation lasts over a year if used sparingly. And at the price point it is, as a college student, I want it to last a long time. Since the foundation is in an airtight container and you can fully controll the dose by the sensitive pump, it’s the most handy foundation I’ve had so far and I’ve had over twenty.
