Urban Decay Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer - Review | KMC Beauty



If you read my June Wishlist (here) you will have seen the new Urban Decay concealer on there, I was in the market for a new concealer and after hearing a lot of good things I decided this was the one I wanted to try out next. At the time of purchasing Debenhams was having their usual 10% off all beauty which they do quite frequently so I decided this was the best time to pick it up.

It comes in this warm bronze packaging and inside contains the 5ml tube that is see through so you can see your product and how much you have left and also has a twist off cap with a dofus applicator.
I will say that this concealer is a lot more watery than other concealers I have tried in the past but it provides really good coverage and a little goes a long way, when I first tried it out I created a triangle of concealer under my eyes like I always did however this was far too much product and I had trouble blending it out, I now find that two lines under each eye as seen in the below photo is the perfect amount to provide me with the under eye coverage I need.
Excuse my bare face, I wanted to show how much coverage the concealer provides alone instead of on top of my foundation, it doesn't give that 'stark white' effect, thats not for me but it does even out my skin tone and also hides any veining I have on my eyelids.

Urban Decay Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer - Light Warm
I have tried both Beauty Blender and my finger to blend out the concealer and both work perfectly, I couldn't tell much difference between the two, when blending out with either method the concealer was easy to work with.
Where I live I don't have a nearby counter where I could go and swatch all of the shades to find out which one I wanted so online it was a bit of a guessing game, I ended up picking up the shade 'Light Warm' as I wanted a colour that was a shade lighter than my foundation to brighten up my under eye, like I mentioned I didn't want a colour that would look stark white on the face as I am fairly pale to begin with, I think I made the right decision in choosing Light Warm it works perfectly and brightens under my eyes just the way I like.

Now when it comes to hydrating my skin, i'm not the best! I try and moisturise my skin but to be honest it's only when I remember to, under my eyes I do have some lines where this concealer does settle, if you moisturise under your eyes on a regular basis (like I should) then this may not be a problem for you, I am trying to remember to put on my eye cream every night now to see if it will make a difference in the future.

All in all I am definitely impressed with this concealer and I would repurchase it again when I run out, it has taken the place of my Maybelline Age Rewind concealer and it's definitely above the MAC Pro Longwear as I find that a bit cakey!

Find online at Debenhams here - Full price £17.50 but if you can hold out I would wait till they have 10% off as they regularly do!
