Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer. From the name, you’d expect this concealer to look naked on your face, feels like nothing and yet covers every imperfection. Urban Decay promises just that. A full coverage concealer that feels and looks like second skin. You can build up the coverage layer by layer and it is NOT supposed to settle into fine lines. If it really works as claimed, I’ll promise to use ONLY this concealer for the rest of my life.

 

UD Naked Skin concealer

 

I haven’t tried the Naked Skin Liquid Foundation before, but this concealer is supposed to have similar texture with more coverage. Even the bottle looks like the liquid foundation, in miniature size. I was sent two of the lightest shades in the line up – Fair Neutral and Light Warm. Fair Neutral is a pale neutral ivory which is too pale for me. However, it works great as a highlighter. Light Warm matches my skin better when sheered out. It is also a little more yellow, and will suit those with NC15 skin. Fair Neutral is more like NC10.

 

 

Naked Skin Concealer FN LW

 

Let me tell you that I was impressed the very first time I touched this concealer. It is very light and creamy, and goes on the skin beautifully. It blends like a dream, and the claim of it being second skin is true. The concealer dries to a demi matte finish so if your skin is normal / oily, you’ll appreciate it. However, I do notice it emphasizes the occasional flakes on my nose. I have also been using it under my eyes where I have fine lines. The concealer does not hide the fine lines, no and depending on your application method, it might settle into the fine lines. However, I found a way to achieve the most natural finish. Using the concealer’s paddle brush, I apply it mostly at the centre of my face. 2 horizontal stripes under my eyes, like I’m crying. Then, with a small stippling brush (I’m enjoying Zoeva’s 122 Petit Stippling), I buff out the concealer. Immediately, the concealer blends into the skin, brightening the area and no, it doesn’t settle into my fine lines. Do note though, I don’t have that many lines to begin with.

The concealer is loaded with some skincare benefits. It improves skin’s elasticity, reduces fine lines and helps retain moisture. I’d take it with a pinch of salt though. These are nice to have, but won’t probably do that much compared to my serums and potions. I decided to do a comparison swatch for you. The Estee Lauder concealer in Extra Light is the best match for my skin tone, but the texture is very heavy. NARS Custard is darker and Vanilla will be a better match, but at the moment, Light Warm works really well too. Comparatively, I find NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer to have a heavier texture compared to this Naked concealer. However, I prefer NARS’s finish because I’m not into matte bases nowadays. My skin became a little drier, and I prefer a little glow (not shine) for a finishing touch. So if you have oilier skin, you might appreciate Naked Skin concealer compared to NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. If you have super oily skin and want your full coverage concealer to stay, get the Estee Lauder Double Wear. The MUFE Full Cover is better suited to cover spots while the Clinique Airbrush Concealer in Fair is a pink that brightens the under eye area. I used to have number 4, Neutral Fair which looks more like my skin tone but since I’m using this exclusively under my eyes, the pink works well.

I hope the comparison helped. Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer (RM105) is available at Sephora. Have you tried it yet?

  • I use MAC Prolongwear under my eyes, and NARS for my face, so I think I’m good on concealers, although I was interested in this. But I do prefer a bit of glow vs. a matte/demi-matte finish, so I guess I don’t need it after all, lol! Thanks, Lily!

    • Lily

      You’re welcome, Larie. I like a bit of glow for under the eyes too, and I’m really happy I don’t have much spot concealing to do 😛

  • It is probably good news for the fair skin ladies since both of the shades you have look very light. I haven’t tried those yet and I am hoping to do so soon but right now I am on a concealer load lol, so I’d probably wouldn’t invest.

    • Lily

      I think we’re overload on everything, Sara. HAHAHAHA!

  • You already know that I’m finally about to purchase MUFE Full Coverage Concealer – still working out the shade though. A lot of people have been raving about this concealer and I can’t deny I’m curious. The formula sounds less dry than Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, which is great news for under the eyes. Does it cover dark circles well?

      Hi Alice, I do use the lighter shade to brighten my undereye area. It seems to work fine! However, on days I didn’t get much sleep at all, I do pat a little more of RMS ‘un’cover up as a finishing touch. It’s more dewy and adds a tad bit of glow 🙂

  • I like this concealer too-it’s nice! But like you I still prefer the NARS one on my face-it covers spots really well. I hate it under my eyes though.

    • Lily

      When I use the NARS one under my eyes, I look like my lines just appeared out of nowhere. This one when applied sparingly, doesn’t settle on the lines under my eyes.

  • Unpaletteable

    The comparison really helped! I’m trying to choose a new concealer at the mo and this UD Naked in fair neutral looks like it’d be a good match but no dice if it emphasises dryness. The MUFE is still a strong contender for a spot concealer though.

    • Lily

      The MUFE is amazing for spot concealing! This Naked concealer does emphasize flakes on my nose, unfortunately. Perhaps you should just give it a try, and see how it goes. A sample maybe?

  • I’ve yet to try this concealer as I just picked up a new Maybelline one to try. However, UD usually rocks my boat so I’ll probably end up trying it at some point! Kudos on the swatches! Super helpful, Lily!

    • Lily

      I’m glad the swatches are helpful, Kristen. I remember liking the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer. The formula was good, but gosh, I hated the packaging!

  • Liz

    The best concealer match I ever had was the MUFE HD Concealer – bought that repeatedly until I got poor or too lazy, lol. I hadn’t given any thought to these UDs but now I’m curious! I’ll need a darker shade but it looks like there’s just enough yellow in the warm option to keep it real.

    • Lily

      I like that there is enough yellow in their “warm” shades. I think there’s a huge shade gap though. One shade darker might be too dark for me apparently? I don’t have access to Sephora here. Otherwise, I’d give you guys all the swatches…

  • I have never tried this concealer, but their foundation is ♥♥♥! When I have enough I will definitely try these (;

    • Lily

      Oh I haven’t tried their foundation but I’ve read pretty good things 🙂

  • Great review and comparisons Lily. I think in the last year I’ve devellopped a few fine lines which I am not too thrilled about, so concealers that emphasize fine lines is something I’m trying to stay clear of. I have a couple of shades of the Nars one, and while I do like them I find that just a touch too much and ooops: everything is emphasized. This could be a good option then.

    • Lily

      This one is lighter than the NARS one, I feel… but the key is applying this in very light layers. I hope you get to try it one day!

  • Nailz Craze

    Oh these look awesome! Everyone’s raving about these makes me want to try them too!

    • Lily

      These are pretty good. I usually try to use up a concealer before buying another though

  • Qi Yong

    You review is AMAZING. I have fine lines under my eyes, and as you had mentioned, we have to use the right application method. Do you mind sharing how to apply it? Thanks!

    • Lily

      Hi Qi Yong, I make sure the under eye area is properly moisturized before applying this. I like to use my finger to pat the product under my eyes and then use a buffing brush to blend it out.
