Review: Urban Decay's new foundation gives perfect full coverage with a matte finish

We all love when a new foundation finds its way into our make up kit. And in my case, I especially love it when it's full cover and matte. So you can imagine the excitement when I heard that Urban Decay were launching long-lasting, liquid foundation All Nighter (€34).




This product is long-wearing, waterproof, full coverage, and oil free. And there are 24 colours to choose from so you are bound to find one to suit you.

The thing to flag about this foundation is that it needs to be shaken before it's used. It's quite a thick formula but even though it is, the foundation blends like a dream. And I'm a difficult blender to please.


It's completely matte so for it's great for oily skin types and the coverage is excellent. It also builds well so if you are a coverage queen (like me) you will love it.

I especially loved the long-wearing formula that literally did not budge all day long and there was no patchiness at all.


You don't have to powder this foundation, which goes against everything I believe in as a makeup artist but in actual fact, the foundation dries quite fast and you really don't need to set it at all.

I am really impressed with this foundation, just keep in mind because it is a matte foundation avoid the eye area or it will stick in lines and dry out the area which in time will add to wrinkles.


It's definitely a win for Urban Decay with this one. It hits shelves today at Debenhams and House of Fraser (and is also available online from Debenhams).

Are you tempted? And if you are the proud owner of oily skin? And if so, what is your go-to foundation?
