posted in: Makeup | 0

Don’t let the current climate stop you from being with the love of your life, which of course, for me is makeup! The beauty world is slowly picking up pace again with new releases coming out regularly once again. Urban Decay has just dropped a fabulous new release- the Stay Naked Hydromaniac Tinted Glow Hydrator Foundation. This foundation is truly something wow! I love Urban Decay foundations, you can check out my review on the Urban Decay Stay Naked Foundation here.

Until recently the Stay Naked Hydromaniac Tinted Glow Hydrator Foundation was only available in the US, but…it has finally been released in the UK! Why do brands always take longer to release their products in the UK?! Hmm…

Urban Decay Stay Naked Hydromaniac Tinted Glow Hydrator Foundation

Their Stay Naked Hydromaniac Tinted Glow Hydrator fits in well with the tinted base trend that’s gained momentum this year. But along with that is their Urban Decay Stoned Vibes Eyeshadow palette. I remember the first news of the palette coming out a few weeks ago, and if I recall correctly, the Tinted Glow Hydrator was kept safe and hidden.

Well, now it’s here and the suspense is over! It really is all that exciting! So what’s it all about? The Urban Decay Stay Naked Hydromaniac Tinted Glow Hydrator is essentially a hybrid of foundation and tinted moisturiser. Yep, you get the best of both worlds with this tinted glow hydrator. The timing couldn’t have been better. With the frigid cold weather we’re experiencing, we all need that extra moisture and glow, I love that this product offers all of that in one product! Getting ready in the morning has never been easier or quicker! You get all the benefits of a tinted moisturiser, along with medium coverage making it a dream foundation!

One of my favourite features of this tinted glow is that it’s so comfortable to wear. With it being extremely lightweight, you barely notice you’re wearing anything and neither will those around you. It looks extremely natural on the skin! It is also very long-wearing- up to 24 hours. That’s a big claim, but even if it doesn’t last 24, 12 hours is also impressive! I find the 24-hour claims are often exaggerated.

It is non-comedogenic and formulated with some impressive ingredients:

  • Kombucha Filtrate: Antioxidant-rich to brighten and Detoxify, Increasing skin’s luminosity.
  • Marula Oil: hydrates, protects, & seals in hydration

Aside from all the fabulousness already mentioned, this tinted glow helps to blur imperfections and minimise pores. Not to add negativity to a product that really is great, but Urban Decay is quick to say that their makeup blurs imperfections. You can check out my review on the Urban Decay Naked Skin One & Done Blur On the Run. While it does the job, it doesn’t quite blur imperfections like it claims it does. However, I’m happy to be proven wrong with the Hydromaniac Tinted Glow Hydrator Foundation!

Urban Decay has marketed the tinted glow at all skin types including oily skin. My vibe is that its more geared towards people with normal, dry, and dehydrated skin because of its moisturising and glowing features. Those with oily skin are usually not looking for glow in their products.

The Hydromaniac Tinted Glow Hydrator comes in 12 shades, ranging from very fair neutrals to deep warms. It doesn’t come in any cool tones, only warm and neutral so if you’re cool-toned check out some of our other foundation reviews! I’m hoping that they will release the Tinted Glow Hydrator in more shades in the future because honestly, it’s a little limited. If you often have trouble finding the right foundation shade for your skin check out these foundations which have the most inclusive shade ranges!

Urban Decay recommends applying this foundation with your fingers for best results. As someone who more often than not applies foundation with my fingers anyway, I like the sound of it even more!

The packaging looks to be a whole new aesthetic that separates itself from Urban Decay’s recent launches. With a slim brown plastic tube that seems like it’s been dipped in the ocean, it has a blue tint of design creeping up on the packaging. Copper and bronze are all over the packaging making me think summer is probably just starting out on Urban Decay’s calendar.

Is It Worth the Buzz?

Tinted moisturisers and foundations are slowly becoming a staple in the makeup world. They’re easy to use, easy to wear and let’s face it, they look amazing!

In a nutshell, the Hydromaniac Tinted Glow Hydrator is worth every penny! It’s natural-looking, lightweight, easy to apply, buildable, moisturises your skin throughout the day and on top of all of that, it’s long-wearing! To me, all of that sounds like one product I don’t want to miss out on!

Final Thoughts

The Urban Decay Stay Naked Hydromaniac Tinted Glow Hydrator is an exciting release for Urban Decay and for makeup users alike! It looks natural, feels natural, yet at the same time gives a solid medium, long-lasting coverage! Definitely my kinda product!

Urban Decay Stay Naked Hydromaniac Tinted Glow Hydrator retails in the UK for £29.

Urban Decay Stay Naked Hydromaniac Tinted Glow Hydrator Foundation can be bought from Urban Decay
