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!
