A Great Concealer!

I put off purchasing this until I used up a few of my concealers, hence the reason being so late to jump on the band wagon with this one! This was an effort to try and keep my make up collection under control (who am I kidding?!) 

I have to say, I was somewhat disappointed with the Nars Creamy Concealer that everyone raved about.  Don't get me wrong, it was a 'nice' concealer, but that's about the only word I could use to describe it.  It wasn't ground breaking and it certainly wasn't as good as the cheap as chips, Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer (that incidentally I'm on about my 6th tube of!) 

I'm in my mid-thirties (shhhh! We don't talk about this fact too often!) and I suffer with the problem of my concealer creasing under my eyes after a couple of hours of application, therefore, I'm constantly on the prowl for something that will combat this. 

Then, Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer happened! Finally, a concealer that doesn't crease! 

First let's talk about the packaging and applicator.  Both very impressive.  The concealer is part of the Urban Decay Naked range and the packaging looks sleek and minimal, just how I like things :)

The applicator is also very good, it's an effective shape and distributes the product evenly onto the skin. 

What I love the most about this concealer is the texture, it feels lightweight and thin in consistency but packs a punch in the pigmentation department meaning it hides a multitude of sins without looking 'cakey',

It wears well, especially if set with a lightweight powder (I'm using a loose powder by Laura Mercier at the moment) and as I mentioned previously, doesn't seem to settle into fine lines. Yay! 

Here is a picture of myself taken last week before an evening out to see the concealer in action (some of you may have already seen this on my Instagram account!) Sorry for looking like a bit of a miserable cow! :) 

The concealer also acts as a light reflector, which means it's great for using under your eyes but I also find it works really well on other areas of the face such as the chin, nose and forehead for that extra bit of coverage. 

So in short, this has definitely made it to Holy Grail status in my concealer collection, along with Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage (great for covering nasty spots) and the aforementioned, Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. 

Hope you're all enjoying your weekend!
