Review: Urban Decay All Nighter Waterproof Concealer with Swatches of Every Shade
Urban Decay is launching a new full coverage concealer as part of their All Nighter makeup range. There is already a foundation and makeup setting spray that are formulated to be long wearing and stay on the face all day and night. I have not yet tried anything from the All Nighter line though to be honest, it’s not something that would necessarily appeal to me. I find that most of the makeup I use stays on my face for the whole day, and often long wearing formulas can be too heavy or thick for my taste.

Urban Decay sent over their new concealer from this line for me to test and I went into it with an open mind hoping that it would change my mind about long wearing makeup formulas. There is a pretty decent shade range to choose from with both warm and neutral undertones. I can wear either Fair Warm or Fair Neutral for under my eyes and both are light enough to brighten any darkness. I don’t tend to use concealer on my face because I find that most of my foundations do a good enough job of covering any problem areas.

From an initial swatch, the formula did feel a bit dry but gave fantastic coverage. In fact, after I swatched all of the colors on my arm, it took me quite a while to remove them completely so this concealer definitely does have some serious staying power. However, as soon as I applied it under my eyes, it immediately began to emphasize any dryness. I tried first to mix it with some eye cream and then used a damp beautyblender but after it would dry down, my under eye area didn’t look smooth and any fine lines were accentuated. Bummer.
Sadly this concealer was not a win for me and I think my skin and more importantly my under eye area is just too dry for this formulation. It may work for someone with more oily skin or a well hydrated eye area. But as far as coverage is concerned, this can conceal almost anything and does stay put for hours.

Sneak Peek and Review: Kevyn Aucoin Etherealist Super Natural Concealer (swatches of all shades)

| ,

Review of the Kevyn Aucoin Etherealist Super Natural Concealers with swatches of all shades.
Today’s post is a bit of tease because it’s a sneak peek but thankfully the product is launching very soon! Kevyn Aucoin Beauty just released a new concealer formula following in the footsteps of their very popular Etherealist foundation. The formula comes in 10 shades, with one of the shades being a color corrector.

The applicator is a small doe foot which can be hit or miss depending on the size of the sponge and formula of the concealer. This particular doe foot is a great size, and is easy to spot treat around the face or to use around the eye in a specific placement (this is my preferred method). While my under eye shade is mix between Light 01 and Light 02, I have been using the Corrector more because it has a peachy undertone which I find helps to color correct any under eye darkness the most effectively.

Colors from left to right: Corrector, Light 01, Light 02, Medium 03, Medium 04, Medium 05, Medium 06, Deep 07, Deep 08, Deep 09
The formula is a medium coverage that blends very easily into the skin. I didn’t find it to be super brightening, but rather do a good job of concealing any darkness. The texture is a medium weight that can be sheered out for less coverage or built up for more. Just from my initial swatches, I was worried that because they were quite opaque and seemed thick (each swatch above is with just one application/swipe) the concealer would be a bit drying for under my eye. Surprisingly it was not at all and felt creamy when on the skin with a satin finish that kept my under eye area looking smooth, and I was able to blend it out with my fingers, a brush or a beautyblender. It lasted all day and I didn’t notice any creasing (and I didn’t set it with powder). The concealers will be launching on Sephora and the Kevyn Aucoin website in early August.
