Don’t go chasing waterfalls… That’s what I’m telling you, but if you’re going to do it anyway (despite TLC’s multiple warnings!), know that you can stand underneath one wearing Urban Decay’s new concealer, and your makeup would emerge completely intact.
It’s waterproof to the extreme, so keep your fave oil-based makeup remover handy, because you’ll need it to take this concealer off your face.
Extremely matte, extremely waterproof
A new addition to the UD permanent fam, All Nighter is a long-wearing, high-coverage liquid concealer available in 14 shades ($29 each).
They have a… I want to call it an ultra-matte finish, because they’re SO matte that they don’t reflect any light whatsoever on the skin, which makes them easier for me, as a woman in my 40s, to wear on my cheeks, nose, mouth, chin and forehead, but not so easy to wear under my eyes.
For some reason, matte concealers, especially the flat mattes like these, age me. I dunno, but I swear they make my fine lines look more obvious (whereas dewy/reflective concealers like Make Up For Ever’s HD and MAC Matchmaster make my under-eye area look plumper and more youthful).
Awesome for everywhere except under my eyes
If you’re 30+, I wouldn’t recommend All Nighter as an under-eye concealer, but it’s boss for everything else on your face because it covers up everything (it’s also way more pigmented than UD’s Naked Skin concealer).
It hides freckles, discoloration, redness… All Nighter handles it all, and it’ll do it all night long, even if you go for an impromptu swim at midnight (it happens). It’s waterproof and long lasting.
Also in the new Urban Decay All Nighter line…
Feels like NARS Pure Radiant
The texture is similar to NARS Pure Radiant Concealer. It has that same creamy, gliding fluffiness, so it’s super easy to blend.
I prefer to use my fingers to apply it because I think it’s easier to control that way and sticks better to the skin.
Works in place of foundation
You can pair this with Urban Decay’s All Nighter Foundation, but I think you can also easily get away with using the concealer on its own to even out your skin tone. I use just a few drops — seriously, it’s so concentrated that you won’t need more than three or four small dots for a small area, like a cheek or around your mouth — blend it with my fingers (work quickly because it dries fast!), and I usually skip powder, because I don’t think it needs it. This covers pretty much everything on its own.
Who’s it for?
I think this would be great for someone looking for a long-wearing, flat matte finish concealer to wear anywhere on their face except beneath their eyes.
I mean…you can wear it under your eyes, but I’d recommend cutting it with a drop or two of face oil to take down the matte-ness a bit if you do.
I also like this if you live anyplace with weather extremes, like someplace hot and humid like Hawaii, or someplace that gets lots of snow or rain. Or, if you just want super polished skin with a matte finish…this could work for you, too.
