When Urban Decay announces a release, you know its something big. The latest release is a twist on their classic Naked series, and if you’re a fan of the Naked Collection, then you will love the new Stay Naked Collection! It is an expansion on the Naked Collection, it’s a whole new range of foundations and concealers that will set your pulses racing.
If you want a fabulous foundation then meet the Stay Naked Foundation. It comes in 50 shades of which there are 3 different tones, warm, cool and neutral. When I first heard about the release I was a bit sceptical, Urban Decay already has 2 foundations, the All Nighter and the Naked Skin, I did wonder, how is this one going to be different from the others?!
After the first use, I was already sold. The Urban Decay Stay Naked foundation is the perfect union of the All Nighter and Naked Skin foundations. All Nighter is a full-coverage, thick foundation and Naked Skin is more of a BB cream. Stay Naked is longlasting and has full coverage like the All Nighter but it is weightless and skinlike like the Naked Skin. It has the perfect balance of the two foundations.
I could sing its praises all day long, however, for the sake of the blog I’ll keep it short;) The Stay Naked foundation is the ideal balanced foundation and the main reason I love it is because when you wear it you don’t feel like you’re wearing anything. Nothing at all. It doesn’t leave any greasy or goopy feel to it and it stays matte throughout the day.
When applying it, it has a lovely silky feel to it. It doesn’t clog pores and nor does it show any lines or wrinkles. My skin usually can get a little flakey from foundations but, I had no problems with the Stay Naked.
It is also extremely long-wearing, Urban Decay claim on their website that it lasts for up to 24 hours. Honestly, I don’t know if it’s true because I didn’t try it out for 24 hours. However, by the end of the day, that’s after 10 hours it did look like it needed a touching up. Impressive, nevertheless.
It applies and blends really smoothly and nicely. It is a light-medium coverage but if you want a full coverage it is pretty buildable too.
The foundation comes in a really classy plastic bottle with a pump. I really like the packaging, it’s simple yet effective. Stay Naked foundation is waterproof and vegan.
The Stay Naked concealer is available in 25 different shades which include different undertones, and different intensities. I find with concealer it’s a lot easier to choose a colour because how wrong can it be? Concealer doesn’t have to match your skin tone to a T. All it has to do is blend in.
The concealer has a really lovely consistency. It isn’t too runny, yet neither is it too thick. And it isn’t too chalky, yet nor is it greasy. It blends beautifully, it literally melts into the skin and you can’t see a thing. There is no cakiness at all, it has the most perfect natural look.
Stay Naked Concealer can be used to cover bags under your eyes and any other blemishes or pigmentation that you want to be covered. For under your eyes, I recommend buying a shade that is a shade or two lighter than your foundation colour. You can also do the same to highlight an area and for contouring. It makes the area really stand out and in my opinion, it looks amazing!
The concealer has a demi-matte finish which is a matte finish that is not 100% matte. It has a toned-down dewiness to it. It is lovely in a concealer because often the matte concealers settle into the lines which I think makes people look old. With the Stay Naked Concealer, I didn’t have that problem.
The concealer lasts remarkably well throughout the day. As with all my makeup, I always use a setting powder. However, even with a setting powder, the product has to be solid stuff for it to last the whole day. The Stay Naked Concealer is vegan.
I love colour correctors, and what I love even more is that Urban Decay released it in line with the other Stay Naked products. I have a thing for when products are made to work together, as is the case here.
The colour corrector comes in 2 colours, dark red and pure white. The dark red is for darker skin and the white is for fair skin.
You can use the colour corrector on any area that is slightly discoloured (even if only you can see it!). The common problem areas are under the eyes and around the nose and mouth. It can also be used when you have some pigmentation or spots. The colour corrector will even out the skin tone and you won’t see a thing.
Why you need the Stay Naked Collection in your life
Urban Decay really hit the nail on the head with the Stay Naked Collection. The foundation has the perfect balance of long-wearing, weightless feel and flawless appearance and so does the concealer. With the huge choice of colours, you can be sure you will find one for your skin colour and tone. If you want perfection in a bottle, you can’t get much closer than with this collection.
