Urban Decay is a really cool brand although they have a lack of new products and colours – if you ask me.
I spotted the 24/7 concealer stick a while ago and decided to use my Boots points of one – a reasonable £8.50p.
This comes in a pencil form – better than a concealer in a palette which is messier to use but is not as hand as a swivel up concealer that doesn’t require sharpening.
This comes in 4 shades – fairly light ones too. I have a medium-light olive tone and I took the darkest shade NZA. I thought it would be too dark for under the eyes but it’s ok….but if you are Asian or Black you can forget it.
It’s a shame it doesn’t go any darker for now, but I am sure UD will expand that range…eventually.
It is very very soft and pigmented – so creamy that I am wondering how well it will stay put. It dries somewhat but not completely…powder is essential on top, if you want it to last.
Whilst I love its non-dragging softness, I still feel its a bit to thick for under the eye. For me, I prefer light textures that disappear on the skin since the undereye area naturally crinkles a bit. I have cakey concealer under the eye, it’s aging – I’d rather have a sheerer illuminating light textured concealer than an opaque paste under my eyes.
See how opaque it is – fab for blemishes, but under the eye? Nah.
Here’s my scary tired eye:
I’ve got circles, but skin is looking pretty smooth eh? Been using my La Mer Eye Cream.
With the concealer:
It blends nicely, but as you can see on the inner corner, it’s already crept into a fine line I have. I applied it only moments before. I also took it over my eyelid too – this colour is a little yellow as a eye concealer but the one below was lighter but pinky based which I wasn’t keen on.
It’s a nice product, and if one of the shades works for you then this is a great face concealer. I still don’t like it under the eyes because I hate the raccoon effect but I would definately carry it with me for touch ups. It’s also affordable 🙂
I have a far better under eye concealer by the way, my favourite at the moment…you’ll have to wait for that one though….
