Is The Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation Worth The Hype?


I’ve been on a hunt for a good foundation for a little while now. Foundations can be so versatile plus they’re all so different so there is ample choice! You’ve probably heard everyone banging on about the new Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation by now but its one I’ve wanted to try ever since I heard it came out.  Firstly the bottle looks gorgeous, its unlike any other out there. The bottle is designed to look good without looking messy #winning!! At first sight I thought the bottle would be quite heavy (well as heavy as a bottle of foundation can be) but its actually really lightweight, I almost didn’t believe there was any foundation in it! Compared to my glass bottled foundations this is one I wouldn’t mind carrying around in my purse, I’d barely notice its there.


With a mammoth 24 shades to choose from I was lost in a sea of possibilities! I ended up choosing shade 1.0. I’m often told I have an olive skin tone but I feel my face is much lighter than the rest of my body so I tend to go with a light foundation and bronze it up later. This shade is perfect for me, I could perhaps even go a shade darker but I don’t really feel the need to with this, especially after applying my contour/bronzer. The foundation comes out of a squirty top, one pump goes a long way but I use two. Its a really creamy, smooth in texture foundation thats lightweight on the skin but also has a really good coverage. This is also a buildable foundation so if you want to apply a tad more it’ll blend together nicely without looking cakey, but you probably won’t need to! The All Nighter Foundation dries matte which if I’m honest I was a little scared about since the foundation I was using previously had a matte finish that I started to hate. With the All Nighter Foundation the matte finish is really likeable, its not overly matte so it doesn’t exaggerate my frown lines (thank God)!


Another perk of the All Nighter Foundation is that its waterproof! Now its not like I’ve gone swimming in it but it really is waterproof, great for someone like me who gets hot easily and since we are entering the wet season in England its bound to be a girls best friend! The people at Urban Decay have also loaded the foundation with light diffusing powers to blur any unwanted flaws, what other foundation does this!? Thank you Urban Decay! As you can guess from the name this is a foundation that lasts. I put it to the test running around after my two kids all day and by the end of it my makeup was still in tact looking perfect (snaps for Urban Decay)!

Looking great at the end of the day is so confidence boosting and leaves me feeling sassy and good about myself, this foundation does that for me. I currently haven’t tried anything else from Urban Decay, but if the All Nighter Foundation is anything to go by I need to get some orders in. Next stop, lipsticks!


So, is the Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation worth all the hype? Yes, I believe it is!

    The packaging is just stunning and so glad it lives up to the hype too.

    So so so many good reviews about this. I’ve never used UD foundation before (YSL Fusion Ink fan here). Think I’ll have to go get a colour match 🙂

    • cheskaaanels October 20, 2016 / 11:32 am

      Its so worth it! I really love mine!

  3. Emma McCaw October 20, 2016 / 11:58 am

    I’m such a big Urban Decay fan and I was wondering what this was like! I’m glad to hear it lasts all day, I really need that in a foundation. Great review, and your pictures are so beautiful! <3

    • cheskaaanels October 20, 2016 / 1:16 pm

    Great review, I like their naked foundation, so I may have to give this a try especially in the warmer months x

    • cheskaaanels October 20, 2016 / 1:17 pm

      Yes this is amazing I don’t see why anyone wouldn’t like it to be honest!

  5. Sarah Bailey October 20, 2016 / 1:40 pm

    I really need to find myself a new foundation – so perhaps I need to give this one a go as it sounds great. x

  6. nicol October 20, 2016 / 4:01 pm

    i really want to try this but have heard they oxidise

  7. Stephanie Merry October 20, 2016 / 4:40 pm

    I’ve heard so many good things about this foundation I think I need to just bite the bullet and go and pick it up – thanks for sharing x

    • cheskaaanels October 20, 2016 / 5:28 pm

      Honestly its brilliant! I’ve just woken from a 2 hour nap and my makeup is still in tact haha!

  8. Milly Youngman October 20, 2016 / 6:14 pm

    I regularly use the Naked Skin foundation and love it, but really want to give this a try too!

    • cheskaaanels October 20, 2016 / 7:02 pm

      Its great! I’ve seen some other reviews of people not really liking it but it seems its because they are putting far too much on or their skin underneath is an issue. This is amazing on literally I would recommend it to everyone!

  9. Stressed Mum October 20, 2016 / 7:25 pm

    I am always wary about new foundations, but have not tried this one and do love the sound of it x

    • cheskaaanels October 20, 2016 / 8:07 pm

      This is a great one!! Usually there is a lot of hype around something and when I use it I hate it but his is excellent!

  10. Ana De Jesus October 20, 2016 / 7:52 pm

    Wow I can’t believe that it is waterproof. I love that the foundation comes in 24 shades as well .

  11. MELANIE EDJOURIAN October 20, 2016 / 8:04 pm

    Great review and it’s good to hear you thought it was a nice product. I will have to try this.

  12. Rachel October 20, 2016 / 8:12 pm

    I now cannot wait for mine to arrive, it sounds even more fab x

    • cheskaaanels October 20, 2016 / 8:51 pm

      You’re going to love it! Get use to it and let me know what you think!

  13. Rhian Westbury October 20, 2016 / 9:48 pm

    Once I finish a few of my foundations this is the next one on my list. I love the fact that it’s slightly waterproof as my skin can get quite dewy in the day x

  14. Miranda (Anosa) October 20, 2016 / 9:54 pm

    I am not that into makeup because I am not good with it but I do love a good founation that will last me the night especially if I go out

    • cheskaaanels October 20, 2016 / 10:06 pm

      All with good practise! Yes a good foundation is so important on a night out!

  15. Liz Mays October 21, 2016 / 1:03 am

    I’m glad this ended up being worth it! It sounds like an awesome foundation that eliminates some of the usual worries with weather and wear.

  16. Daniel October 21, 2016 / 4:18 am

    My wife was just looking at this product. I will show her this page.

  17. WhatLauraLoves October 21, 2016 / 5:06 am

    I have really oily skin so the fact that this is waterproof really appeals to me xxx

    • cheskaaanels October 21, 2016 / 9:54 am

      You’ll love it then (hopefully) haha

  18. hannahhowell912 October 21, 2016 / 11:07 am

    I really need to get my hands on this soon! I love urban decay x

  19. Jessica October 21, 2016 / 11:10 am

    Can’t say I own any Urban Decay products but we’ve sold me on this foundation, espocially with the fact that it’s waterproof and matte. I’ve heard good things about their mascara too. Might have to drop by, thanks for sharing!


    • cheskaaanels October 21, 2016 / 12:03 pm

      Ahhh Jessica you need it!! Its amazing!

  20. The Kats Paws October 21, 2016 / 9:12 pm

    I have this and I think it’s amazing such good coverage xx

  21. Jodie October 21, 2016 / 9:58 pm

    I’ve recently started using the concealer by Urban Decay and found I don’t need as much foundation and it covers every imperfection (even scarring). This might be another for me to try by them!

  22. dearmummyblog October 21, 2016 / 10:00 pm

    We’ve only ever used eyeshadow from Urban Decay but the foundation sounds good too. Like that the bottle is lightweight and there are 24 shades. My mummy is usually around 010 or 01 so might give this a go!

    • cheskaaanels October 21, 2016 / 11:01 pm

      Definitely should its so worth the purchase!

  23. Claire October 22, 2016 / 8:19 am

    When I next have some spare money I need to get to Urban Decay – this looks perfect for my skin!

  24. helerinablogs October 22, 2016 / 10:19 am

    The bottle is stunning! I’ve not tried this but it sounds amazing, I love that it’s waterproof. I’ll definitely be looking at this once my current foundation runs out.

    • cheskaaanels October 22, 2016 / 10:52 am

      Isn’t it just!! I love mine, I can count on it if i’m having a bad skin day thats for sure!!

  25. Claire'scomfycorner October 22, 2016 / 12:26 pm

    This sounds like a really good foundation, I might treat myself 🙂

  26. thingssarahloves October 22, 2016 / 1:44 pm

    I love the packaging! I’ve not tried this foundation yet but I love so many of their products. I’m excited to try it.

    • cheskaaanels October 22, 2016 / 4:27 pm

      Yes I really want to try some other bits of theirs now!

  27. Elodie October 22, 2016 / 2:38 pm

    I don’t wear foundation myself, but this definitely sounds like a good one to use on nights out too if like me, you’re not a daily user. Ha!

    • cheskaaanels October 22, 2016 / 4:27 pm

      Oh absolutely yes! Its great that you don’t wear it everyday!

  28. Stressed Mum October 22, 2016 / 5:07 pm

    I tend to wear foundation for nights out or if going somewhere special. I love the look and sound of this one and the fact it is light enough to carry around in your bag

  29. i knew i was hexed🕷 (@ikiwn) October 22, 2016 / 6:44 pm

    So glad that this lived up to the hype for you! I haven’t used a foundation for a while, but this would be one I tried if I were to make the switch back as I keep hearing such brilliant feedback about it! x

    • cheskaaanels October 22, 2016 / 7:59 pm

      Ahhh thats great that you don’t feel the need to wear foundation!! We should all be a bit more like that!

  30. Sally Akins (@SallyAkins) October 23, 2016 / 4:38 am

    Ooh, I’ve been thinking of trying this so I’m glad I read this review. It sounds fab!

    • cheskaaanels October 23, 2016 / 7:35 am

      I’d definitely be buying it if I were you it really is a fab foundation!

  31. fashionandstylepolice October 23, 2016 / 1:08 pm

    Love the packaging. Will try it once I run out of my current foundations.

  32. Samantha Rickelton October 23, 2016 / 3:43 pm

    I’ve never heard of a water proof foundation before – what a fab idea!

  33. melissazia90 October 23, 2016 / 5:27 pm

    Sounds like a fabulous foundation! I’m a big fan of urban decay so il be getting this 🙂

  34. Annie B October 23, 2016 / 9:14 pm

    Love urban decay but never tried this. I swear by their mascara!

    • cheskaaanels October 23, 2016 / 10:29 pm

      I should try that!! The foundation is great!

  35. Kira October 23, 2016 / 9:52 pm

    This has made up my mind! When I earn a bit more money and when I next run out of foundation, I’m getting this!

    • cheskaaanels October 23, 2016 / 10:30 pm

      Yay!!! I’m glad this helped with your decision!

  36. Harriet from Toby & Roo October 24, 2016 / 10:59 am

    wow so many shades to choose from! You couldn’t not find one to match you right? H x

  37. TheLondonMum October 25, 2016 / 9:25 am

    This sounds like a great foundation! One to try for sure.

  38. apageofme02 November 30, 2016 / 6:20 pm

    I really really want to try this and I think you’ve sold it to me! Beautiful photos 🙂 xxx

    • cheskaaanels November 30, 2016 / 10:36 pm
