Urban Decay | Naked Skin Concealer

I have seen this do the rounds in the blogging world, with so many being a fan, but I thought that as with most, there was no chance that they would produce a shade pale enough for me - when at an Urban Decay counter recently, I was gladly mistaken, and after numerous swatches to be sure, the Naked Skin Concealer came home with me. I picked up the shade Fair Neutral - the lightest one.

First, let's talk packaging and pricing, the tube is slightly smaller than I anticipated, but at the same time, a little goes a very long way with this one. With sleek metallic packaging, that somehow avoids grubby fingerprints, it definitely feels like a premium product in your hand. The concealer itself costs £17.50 which is the most expensive by quite a bit in my collection, however in comparison to bestsellers from Bobbi Brown - £19, and MAC £17.50, it's not overly costly. The foundation equivalent is £27 which is pretty good for a high end foundation, so if you're buying the two together then it does seem to work out a bit cheaper than other high end brands. The application wand itself is something that I've personally never had before, instead of the standard doe foot applicator, you instead are presented with a completely flat sponge, which makes it really easy to apply universally on your face, for blemishes etc I would always apply to the back of my hand first to stay hygienic, but with any dark circles, or redness, I got straight in with the applicator!

This concealer has really opened my eyes in terms of base work, excuse the pun! But when using this I have never looked more awake, it covers any trace of dark circles, and does not crease, move, or oxidise at all during the day. I can finish an evening shift at work, and my face looks exactly the same as before I started - perfect! It blends so beautifully into the skin that you can really tell why they call the range the naked skin, because it looks so natural on your face. I'm really hoping that the lightest shade of foundation is a colour match, because if the concealer is anything to go by then I may have finally solved my foundation woes.
