This post is going to be a review of the new Urban Decay All Nighter foundation. As most of you know, I’m ghostly pale which means finding foundations that go pale enough for me is a mission in itself. I wanted to try this foundation ever since it came out and finally got around to trying a sample (and then purchasing it for myself). For reference, I’m shade Shell in Estee Lauder Double Wear and I wear 0.5 in UD.
The foundation itself is FULL coverage and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone wanting a natural finish to their look. It reminds me of the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation without the cakey-ness and flash back that comes with it (as UD All Nighter contains no SPF).
I found the best way to apply the foundation was with a flat topped kabuki brush to apply most of the product and then perfect the look with a damp beauty blender. I love the finish of this foundation and I find that it sits really nicely on my skin. Due to it being full coverage I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone who is suffering from dry skin – especially if it’s odd patches as it will cling to it without perfect moisturisation.
To conclude I have fallen in love with this foundation and it is my new go to! What foundations have you tried recently (especially if you’re pale like me!)
Here’s my face in its full HD glory to show how perfect this foundation sits on my skin!
Lots of love
Today’s post is on a new concealer I’ve gotten. As a ginger, pale skinned person, I find that finding a concealer which actually highlights the skin tone (for under the eyes etc) a really hard prospect. However when I saw that there was a brand called Dainty Doll, designed for fair skinned people I snatched up the opportunity to try this concealer.
The brand itself doesn’t exist anymore I don’t believe but I found this on a beauty site for half price (they were having a stock clearance)
The packaging is super cute and I love the little ginger afro!
The concealer itself is in a click pen style applicator which makes for easy application.
Unfortunately this is where the good about this product stops. It took me a good few minutes of clicking to get any product to advance up into the brush and when it did it was a very oily constituency.
This is quite a lot of product applied to the back of my hand and it is still quite translucent. I got the shade 01 which was the lightest however I feel that it wasn’t that much lighter than my usual NC15 Mac pro longwear concealer.
Once I blended it out on my hand there was nothing left, I tried with a beauty blender and then with a brush but the same thing happened with both applications. The product got absorbed straight into the skin, leaving a greasy residue on the surface and providing no coverage.
So this product is a massive miss!!
