Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation ($40.00 for 1.0 fl. oz.) is a highly acclaimed full-coverage and waterproof liquid foundation with a matte finish. While it lives up to its promise of providing excellent coverage and a matte appearance, it may present challenges for those with dry patches and requires quick application for seamless blending. This foundation does last well for up to six hours, but it may start to show signs of oiliness and separation after prolonged wear.

Shades and Application

Early reports from readers suggest issues with shade matching due to darkening and oxidation. It is recommended to try this foundation in-store or obtain a sample before purchasing. It is worth noting that the foundation tends to dry darker than it appears upon application. As for my personal experience, shades 3.25 and 4.0 were not perfect matches, but a 60/40 ratio worked well for me. Shade 4.0 has a strong yellow undertone, which can make the skin appear excessively yellow in tone. It is advised to sample different shades to find the best match for your skin tone.

For optimal coverage, one to one and a half pumps of foundation are sufficient. If you prefer to build up coverage, half a pump dabbed in three to four spots per area of the face is recommended. Blending the foundation down the neck ensures a seamless match. It is advisable to work quickly during application to achieve the best finish. The foundation does not respond well to blending or adjustment after drying, as this may result in separation and a cakey appearance.

Dry Skin and Application Techniques

If you have drier skin, using a damp sponge, such as a beautyblender, tends to be the best option. This technique minimizes skin movement and provides a more forgiving finish, especially over dry patches. On other days, when dealing with normal skin conditions, the foundation looks decent to good with fast and precise blending. However, if overapplied or not applied quickly enough, it can appear cakey. Therefore, it is important to find the right application technique that suits your skin type.

Comfort and Coverage

When it comes to the feel of this foundation, it is lightweight and non-clingy. However, it can feel slightly more apparent on the skin compared to other light-medium to medium coverage foundations. The coverage is adequate to hide dark circles, eliminating the need for concealer. The foundation's opacity offers impressive coverage, visibly reducing shadows and under-eye bagginess. For a foundation intended for long-lasting wear, it performed reasonably well on my normal-to-dry skin. However, after eight hours, it did start to separate and lose its initial matte finish. By using setting powder or Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray, an additional two to three hours of good wear can be achieved.

Waterproof and Removal

In terms of waterproof claims, while I did not swim with the foundation, it managed to withstand light rubbing as long as I gently patted my face before lightly rubbing. For removal, I had no issues using shu uemura's cleansing oil.

Final Thoughts

Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation is a highly subjective product. While it can look flawless on certain days, it can also be challenging to achieve a smooth and natural finish. It is advisable to sample the foundation to determine shade suitability and how it performs on your skin. Despite its potential drawbacks, the lightweight feel and impressive coverage make it a viable option for those seeking a long-wearing foundation.
