Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation // Review

urban-decay-all-nighter

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!)

Hit or Miss? // Dainty Doll Concealer

Hi guys!

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!!
