Urban Decay naked Skin Concealer

this week is devoted to all the charm products that haven’t helped me. I didn’t purposely plan this however when I assessed my upcoming messages for the week, I realized every one of them scored less than a 5 on my stock Worthiness scale. These messages will be full of rants as well as potentially some snark. You’ve been warned!  First up:

The official name of this UD concealer is Naked Skin Weightless total protection Concealer:

I have the shade Light Neutral.  I redeemed for this product during the consumers medication Mart optimal points event in February, so it didn’t expense me anything, however it typically retails for $35 CAD for 5ml of product.

I didn’t truly plan on getting this concealer so soon. I desired the Nars Creamy Concealer originally however because consumers doesn’t bring Nars, as well as I had points to redeem, I figured I’d provide this a try.  This concealer claims:
• Ultra lightweight
• Luminous, demi-matte finish
• appears like second skin
• Buildable coverage
• never settles into fine lines no matter exactly how much you apply (caps emphasis taken from website)

I take that last bullet as a challenge!

The very first day I used this, I believed I was imagining things – when I got to work, I discovered that my under eye area looked positively orange. I asked my coworker as well as she politely said, no no it looks fine! however I understood better, the concealer was oxidizing on me. The colour appeared fine at first however when it dried down, it turns at least 2 shades darker / much more orange. right here it is freshly applied:

And BAM! This is 10 minutes later:

It’s no illusion, here’s that exact same dried swatch with one more freshly used swatch next to it to the left.

as well as if you recall, I was at first matched to medium Light Neutral as well as the MUA unintentionally put the medium Dark Neutral in my bag. Can you even envision exactly how that would look?!

Urban Decay spews out a lot of other benefits:

We packed naked Skin Concealer with great deals of components that are great for your skin. Matrixyl 3000 includes anti-wrinkle peptides to enhance skin’s younger appearance as well as elasticity. Japanese eco-friendly tea revitalizes as well as assists decrease the appearance of fine lines. Litchiderm™ (derived from lychee fruit) protects against dehydration, resulting in a brighter, much more radiant complexion. as well as sodium hyaluronate assists skin draw in as well as keep moisture.

Not true!  This concealer looks dry as well as settles into fine lines!  I asked one more coworker if my eye area looked dry as well as she admitted yes it did, as well as stated that’s not exactly how they typically look. say thanks to you! since this concealer made them look dry as well as crepey.  I even utilized my night eye cream during the day to compensate for this concealer however it didn’t work – this concealer just insists on sucking all life as well as wetness from my under eye area.

Worn alone, this concealer likewise doesn’t offer sufficient protection to conceal my dark under eye circles.  The only method I was able to make this work was to wear the Becca Under Eye Corrector beneath it (see swatch 2 pics up). The Becca acts as both a moisturizing primer as well as neutralizer to minimize the oxidation.  I’ve utilized this concealer for other areas around my deal with for light concealing as well as it’s just ok, I discover it doesn’t last well on the skin.

And lastly, to add insult to injury, the packaging is rubbish, UD claims:
The contemporary flocked applicator puts down just the best amount of product, as well as it’s soft sufficient to utilize on the delicate skin under the eyes.

Basically the wand is a small floppy spatula as well as it feels like I’m slapping a dead sardine on my face. The opening of the tube is likewise as well narrow for the wand to fit with easily, so I’ve unintentionally flicked concealer all over while attempting to dislodge it from the tube.  Every time I utilize this, I have to thoroughly wiggle the wand out of the opening.  The only thing I like about the tube? It has that satisfying “click” locking mechanism. That’s IT.

Here are the components of this awfulness:
Cyclopentasiloxane, Aqua (Water/Eau), Butylene Glycol, Silica, Cyclohexasiloxane, Glycerin, Litchi Chinensis Pericarp Extract, PEG/PPG-18/18 Dimethicone, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Dimethicone, Camellia Oleifera leaf Extract, Sodium Chloride, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Phenoxyethanol, Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearate, Caprylyl Glycol, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Propylene Carbonate, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Carbomer, Polysorbate 20, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hexyl Laurate, Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1

It is made in Canada. (sorry!)

• natural looking finish
• Not cakey
• broad variety of shades

• Oxidizes a lot
• Doesn’t offer sufficient coverage
•Makes under eye area look dry
• Settles into fine lines
• wonky wand as well as tube
• Does not carry out well on its own

Stash worthiness: 3/10

I’m not the the only one who experienced these issues, so did Annie of Annie’s Beauty, inspect out her publish on this concealer. If you’re truly hellbent on purchasing this tube-o-crap, it is offered at choose consumers medication Mart charm Boutiques, as well as at Sephora. I’m thankful I didn’t pay actual money for this, or else I just may have returned it. I’ll utilize this up – as well as say thanks to goodness for the Becca – however I would not repurchase. have you ever tried this concealer?
