There I was running out of foundation when, with great timing, the brand new Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation* popped through my letterbox.  Urban Decay All NighterUrban Decay All NighterUrban Decay All NighterI received two bottles and what beautiful bottles they are. They have hygienic pumps and are beautifully stylish.

I received two shades, 2.0 and 2.5. Now the shades are supposed correlate directly with the Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup, (my review of that one is here) and I am a 3.5 in that foundation, but despite the shade difference I gave these shades a go. As a guide, whole numbers are warm toned while 0.5 shades are cool toned. As I’m cool toned, I guessed that 2.5 would be the best shade for me.

Swatches: In the next two photos, the shade on the left is 2.0 and on the right is the cool toned 2.5.

Urban Decay All Nighter Urban Decay All NighterWhile the shades look the same in the bottle, actually when swatched and lightly blended you can see that 2.0 is indeed warmer. I’ve tried both shades and 2.5 is definitely the one for me, but both work okay, I’d guess that the 3.5 in this formula would be too dark.

All Nighter Liquid Foundation is designed to give a flawless matte finish that lasts…all night. While the finish is matte, I have found that the finish is far from flat as I hope you’ll see in my last photograph.Urban Decay All Nighter You all know by now my skin is tricky, foundations either work for me or they don’t. They either don’t blend well on my dry patches or they cause me to break out. I’ve had no problems with this one, it applies like a dream (I use the Urban Decay Good Karma Optical Blurring brush for all foundations). I was a bit concerned the waterproof formula might cause me problems, it didn’t and the pigmentation on this one is amazing, you need very little product for a flawless finish. One pump isn’t quite enough for me BUT, if I have plenty of moisturiser on, one pump is plenty! It’s a high quality formula.

I don’t go for a heavy coverage all the time any more, just bad skin days and special occasions, but I can’t be without a fuller coverage foundation and this fits the bill nicely. Only thing worth mentioning is that this does go a bit shiny on me by tea time, using a primer seems to fix that for me and I will stay pretty much flawless till I wash it off 🙂

30ml is £27, it’s not a cheap foundation but if you’re only using one pump at a time, this is going to last for months! Definite recommend, Urban Decay do great bases!
