The Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid are a semi-new collection of creamy color correcting formulas that recently relaunched with Urban Decay Fall 2016. If you recall these arrived in the middle of February just at the peak of the color correcting trend.
At the moment, the chatter about color correcting has died down but I do believe you’ll hear more of it as we head deeper into Fall 2016. As an anti-fan of Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer, I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about the Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid. Essentially, Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid is the concealer formula but just in color correcting shades right? This made me a little wary of trying them as I wasn’t really a major fan of the concealer!
But they surprised me!
I dunno how many of you spend time color correcting prior to foundation. Personally, it’s been years since I used a color corrector of any kind. I used to love using pastel blue to add brightness under my eyes. Signature Club A’s Anchor Woman Blue was one of my first correctors! And I dunno if anyone remembers but I did a review on the Thierry Mugler Cooling Effect Concealer which I absolutely hated but also was blue in color. It’s a rarity you see blue as a color corrector lately. I also used to use a lot of lavender to brighten up my skin tone.
Anyway, the moral of the story is I rarely use correctors nowadays. So, I do find the color correcting trend rather unusual. What’s old is new again I guess. I just think I have enough going on in my routine in the morning and adding more to it just seems absurd. But never write the power of a good corrector off as they can address a host of issues easily such as redness, sallowness, etc…
Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid is available in five shades starting with Green which counteracts redness! If you have redness in your cheeks, your lids, etc…green is a good way to correct it! There’s also Lavender for balancing out a sallow complexion, I typically use it to brighten up my complexion but there’s a pink shade for that in this collection. Dullness? No problem there’s yellow for that! Any issues with dark circles or spots? Peach is for you!
Speaking of Peach….
This is one of the main reason’s I loved these new correctors. First off, I thought the formula on these was far more creamier and easier to blend compared to that of the concealer. I have drier skin under my eyes and of course, on my face and I never felt this formula dragged during application or blending nor did you crease or cake under my eyes or adhere to my drier areas. Honestly, if the concealer formula was as lovely as this I’d be a lot less happier with it. But I digress, I wanted to tell you more about peach! So, typically I don’t like to correct prior to concealing. I’m of the mentality that a good concealer should do everything without the need to use a corrector as well. But I’ve been using peach under my concealer. GASP! SHOCK! I know right? The formula thins out very nicely so, I never felt like I had too much on. It also brightens my entire eye area up beautifully and wears quite comfortably under my regular concealer. Hell, I even used it alone without concealer and although sheer it still manages to brighten up my entire eye area! I started using Lavender down the sides of my nose and this acts great as a contour tool of sorts. But don’t forget to apply foundation on top because alone it will look pasty.
Far be it for me to get excited about correctors but I have to admit these were rather great. If nothing at all, check out the peach! It’s a winner for brightening up the eye area and making you look like you had 12 hours of sleep when you actually had six!
