Claims: 14 Shades | Demi-Matte Finish | Cruelty Free | Vegan | Reduces Fine Lines
Size: 5 mL or 0.16 oz.
The Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer is a light-weight concealer with a demi-matte finish. This means that when the concealer sets it won’t be fully matte but it won’t be super dewy either. The Naked Skin Concealer comes in a 5 mL bottle with a doe-foot applicator. The bottle is see through which makes it a little easier to see your shade match, this one is Fair Neutral. The Naked Skin Concealer retails for $29.00.
Speaking of the doe-foot applicator. The applicator is a rounded, flat applicator that is designed nicely for getting the product out of the bottle. Whether it’s a fresh bottle or you’re trying to scrape out the last little bit, this applicator does a great job. It’s also nice and soft which I think makes a difference if you’re using the applicator to apply directly onto the skin instead of transferring to a makeup palette or a different brush. I found that the applicator was big enough that I could get the areas I wanted to get without having to do a bunch of applying but it wasn’t so large that it was cumbersome.
As for the product itself. The Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer is formulated with Japanese Green Tea, Litchiderm, and Sodium Hyaluronate. Why are these important? Well the Japanese Green Tea is going to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and if you’re applying this to the under eye area then you’re probably wanting to do some of that. The Litchiderm comes from lychee fruit which helps the skin fight against dehydration and this is important because if your skin is dehydrated it’s going to look dull and lifeless. Lastly, the Sodium Hyaluronate will help the skin retain moisture which helps the Litchiderm do its job! More ingredients are below:

A few other things I want to note about the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer before I tell you my personal thoughts. First off Urban Decay is a cruelty free brand so this product IS cruelty free, however, it should be noted that Urban Decay is now owned by L’Oreal who is NOT cruelty free. In other words, Urban Decay and this concealer are cruelty free but Urban Decay is owned by a parent company who is not. It is up to you, the consumer, to decide if that matters to you or not. Another thing I want to mention is that the Naked Skin Concealer is listed on Urban Decay’s website as being Vegan as well. Lastly, I want to note that there are 14 shades available at this time for the Naked Skin Concealer. There are five shades listed for dark; Extra Deep Neutral, Deep Neutral, Dark Warm, Dark Golden, and Dark Neutral. There are also five shades listed for medium; Medium Dark Neutral, Medium Dark Warm, Medium Light Warm, Medium Neutral, and Medium Light Neutral. Lastly, there are four shades listed for light/fair; Light Neutral, Light Warm, Fair Neutral, and Fair Warm.
As you can see the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer is a great concealer. The wand is designed in a way that it gets product out of the bottle easily and then applies that product easily as well. My only issue with this Urban Decay Concealer is that while it’s supposed to protect against dehydration and help the skin retain moisture it’s actually drying on my skin! I find that when I use this concealer it feels a bit dry and has a tendency to cling to my dry skin patches. From what I have seen though, this has happened to a few people but is not a super common occurrence. My recommendation would be for those with normal skin to for sure give it a try and those with oily or dry might want to either get a sample to test out from Sephora OR keep the receipt in case you have the same problem and need to return it. This is by no means a bad concealer, it’s just a concealer that doesn’t work the best for my skin.
