Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation 1.5

Introducing All Nighter Liquid Foundation! makeup that stays up. It’s the ultimate foundation for a flawless-looking complexion that won’t quit.  All Nighter Liquid Foundation provides full coverage with a modern matte finish that never looks overdone. Get all-night wear and a blown-out effect you never thought was possible for a flawless-looking complexion that looks amazing and stays that way.

~ Full Coverage
~ Full pigment
~ Waterproof
~ Paraben free
~ Absorbs oil to reduce shine
~ Oil Free
~ Matte but not flat
~ 3x as much pigment as Naked Skin Foundation
~ Diffuses light to blur flaws
~ Long lasting
~ No SPF
This foundation offers amazing! Coverage, you only need a small amount and within seconds my skin had full cover, looked smooth and flawless! Only thing I would add is it dries quick quickly so you need to blend, blend and blend before it dries but I found applying it no different to how I apply my other foundation. Concealer and all other products sat over it beautifully!
It is matte, however it isn’t totally flat and it doesn’t dry with any kind of powdery finish at all. It contains light reflecting pigment which helps to give the skin some life. If you have dry skin you’ll need to moisturise and prime, or with all matte dense foundations it can highlight areas of dryness and texture.
Lasting power is generally really good. I’ve tried this over a few days with different primers and finishers and found it wears better with powder over the top, and a mist of setting spray for true super long lasting coverage, I would say you'd get a good 12hrs+ wear, for super oily complexion you may need to blot or powder to keep you looking super matte.
If you are looking for something full for nights out or a special event, looking to create a flawless even base, are oily skinned, or are looking for lasting coverage for acne, rosacea, pigmentation or similar, I’d say you can’t go wrong with this one, especially as it contains no SPF it photographs beautifully with no flashback.
Available in 24 different colours to choose from, so a good range from porcelain through to deep from most good beauty stores including Urban Decay For £27.00.

Too Faced Hangover X Primer

When long days of work and late nights of play give you a beauty hangover, this is your instant cure. Hangover is a revolutionary makeup primer infused with coconut water, probiotic-based ingredients, and skin revivers that work together to boost skins radiance, promote elasticity, and help hydrate while locking down makeup for fresher, longer, and more flawless wear. We harnessed the science of hydration to create a creamy, penetrating primer that acts like an energy drink for the skin by replenishing moisture levels. It can be worn alone for a dewy, healthy looking finish or under bronzers, foundations, and powders to create the perfect canvas.
  • The unique combination of coconut water, probiotic-based ingredient and skin revivers work together to: Hydrate and brighten skin, Promote skin s elasticity and tone, Soothe and smooth the skin.
  • Get all the priming benefits you love while looking like you received eight hours of sleep and drank your daily dose of H2O
  • After Using Hangover: 100%* said makeup went on smoother, 100%* said makeup looked more radiant, 100%* said skin looked more hydrated and 100%* said their skin had the appearance of a full night's rest.

Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer is a silicone-free facial and makeup primer infused with coconut water, probiotics and skin revivers that work together to boost skin’s radiance, promote elasticity and help hydrate while extending the wear of makeup. This comes in a squeezy tube with an attached pump for easy application. It’s formulated to brighten, tone, hydrate, and firm skin thus giving it the look of eight hours of sleep or as if you had plenty of water to hydrate your skin. I have combination skin and am loving using it under my foundations, it gives me a lovely finish and helps keep my foundation looking good all day, I do use smashbox pore minimiser on my nose as I have quite large pores and need extra help (review coming soon). This does have a subtle coconut water scent that’s quite pleasant but not too noticeable after application. The formula is a thinner, creamy texture that applies with a bit of stickiness at first but sets to a dewy finish. I am really impressed.
Available for £27.00 from all good beauty stores.
