Reasons I’m Loving Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid

Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid

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!

    I have the green one, and it works like a charm to disguise the redness around my nose! I only wish the wear time was a little better one me; for some reason, this makes my foundation break down really quickly! 🙁

  • Ayman

    Hi muse,
    Thanks for the review. While checking online swatches of these color correcting fluid esp peach, I’ve read on various other blogs that all of the color correcting fluids especially peach one works better for fair skin girls. I have medium skin tone and terrible dark circles under my eyes. Do you think it would suite my skin tone and work for dark under eye area without making it look unnatural or ashy as you mentioned in your review that peach is a winner for brightening up the eye area.

    • Isabella Muse

      Ayman that is correct! The peach shade won’t work well on darker skin tones. I’m medium fair and worked great but darker likely won’t do well with it, it’ll like pasty! You might want to go for something darker peach or even orange peach!

      • Ayman

        Thanks so much for your reply….I was about to buy it but now I would go for something else. Thanks again.

        • Isabella Muse

          aw my pleasure! Hopefully you find a corrector that’s darker and works for you! have you seen those red lipstick videos? I’ve never tried it personally but people swear by using red lipstick to corrector with!

          • Ayman

            Hey Muse just wanna let you know that I got SHISEIDO Sheer Eye Zone Corrector in Warm Beige 106. It’s like a miracle product for my under eye area and the shade is working good for me. I did try to use red/orange lipstick but it looked a little bit too orange for my skin tone and also lipsticks are quite hard to blend . Anyway Have you ever tried Shiseido Sheer Eye Zone Corrector? Take care n have a great day….

  • carol

    Hi Muse, i hace a question. To avoid crease I suppose to use an eye powder over the concealed or a good concealed not suppose to do crease??

    • Isabella Muse

      Hi Carol, in my experience a good concealer won’t crease BUT sometimes it can’t be helped if you have finer lines, dryness, etc so even if the formula is incredible it might still crease due to many other factors. If you have drier, finely lined eyes to avoid creasing apply a good layer of moisturizing eye cream and pat into place, follow up with concealer, and set the concealer with a dusting of fine powder. That might help with the creasing! Good luck!

  • Tabitha

    I purchased the peach for under eye bags solely on your recommendation, Muse! I use the UD Naked foundation so even though we are in “tan” season, I know it will work well in conjunction with the color corrector in case it’s a little too light looking. Thanks for the review I cannot wait to try it! I’d probably fall right over if I could get these purple bags disguised! Fingers crossed!!!

    • Isabella Muse

      Awesome!!!!! Well, I’ve been using all week and it’s becoming a staple! I like it! I rarely use a concealer and corrector because I feel like it’s too much! This is just right, creamy, thins out nicely as I blend and wears nicely under my regular concealer ;-D I hope you like it. And if it is a little too light, your concealer on top will take care of that 😀 I hope it works out for you! Let me know?

  • Katmary

    I’ve been looking for a salmon concealer forever, this ought to help with my hereditary and allergy – related under eye circles. I tried yellow and also the anchor woman blue like you, and neither quite looked right on me. I never did get around to trying Bobbi Brown’s, though thickness-wise not color-wise I like IT cosmeticsm and also like Tarte’s concealer for the color match (maracuja, though it doesn’t fully cover). I plan on buying the new one you just reviewed to take on a trip with me, we seem to like similar concealers and I need to go a shade deeper on my Tarte foundation so it’s a good excuse to order something extra! 🙂

    • Isabella Muse

      I had the same issues with those shades Katmary! I finally figured out that I shouldn’t be using them lol! I don’t like the layering with Bobbi Brown because her formula is thick and emollient and putting on both her concealer and her corrector is over kill! Let me know what you think when you try!

  • danadoo

    Oh gosh, my daily makeup routine already takes me at least a half hour to do…sometimes longer if I’m feeling “creative”, so I’m trying to avoid any more extra steps at this point! I sometimes use Benefit ‘s Lemon Aid, which i do like for brightening my lids. I’ve tried their Eye Bright as well but was not impressed much. I am lucky because my skin tone is pretty even, except for under eye circles so i can get away with minimal concealer/foundation.

    • Isabella Muse

      likewise! Plus I dislike layering concealers/correctors because I feel like it makes me look dry! Not the case, this works incredibly under my concealer or without concealer at all when I want to go a little more natural! I’m a lemon aid user by the way too 😀 Love that stuff!

  • Shana

    I want to try these so bad…my undereye area is so awful and nothing I try makes it look good lol. I have pretty deep sunken circles under my eyes plus a lot of texture. I’ve tried so much stuff and nothing works! Creamy concealers, heavy concealers…you can still always see the texture and fine lines underneath, even with primer underneath or oils added in. I wish a cheaper brand had ones that worked this well because I’m on an extremely limited budget lol.

    I’m extremely fair skinned (always the lightest, coolest shade in anything)…do you think the peach in something like this would be too dark for me?

    • Isabella Muse

      Dry Hydroshield before applying your concealer! It hydrates soooooooooo well and it’ll prevent the creasing and make your eyes look more hydrated/less lined! Mmm hard to say! The peach might be a little too orange for you! Maybe the pink would be better?

  • yelena

    agree with you muse! I thought color correcting was just a gimmick and lord knows I did not need to add another product to my morning routine, so I had been skeptical…until I met the UD corrector in PEACH! 🙂
    she’s a beauty, and like you I find it blends out easily and is like a drink of refreshing water for my otherwise dry under eyes. I have also used it alone and it looks lovely all by itself.
    I would highly recommend this product~

    • Isabella Muse

      Yay! Glad I’m not alone! I really, really like it too! I wish the Naked Concealer had the same formula because I’d be more likely to rave it! Em The Great Cover Up is just as creamy and hydrating 😀

  • yelena

    p.s. if anyone knows of a concealer that has this formula, PLEASE let me know 🙂

  • ame

    I think they’ve changed these a bit since they launched. They’re a little more opaque (this is good) and the peach is more pigmented/orange (also good.) When they first launched I bought them and the peach was lighter and sheerer than it is now. I just rebought it and I like it MUCH better this time around.

    • Isabella Muse

      I wonder if I should retry the concealer because the concealer was sheerer once blended and I thought a bit dry at the time of my review, maybe I should retry it!
