Urban Decay have recently come out with their Stay Naked collection, within this collection there are two new complexion products including a brand new foundation and concealer and to top it off new Vice Lip Chemistry Lasting Glassy Tints. Every single product in this collection is vegan and cruelty free. The majority of this post will focus on the foundation as I think that is what most people are interested in. The Stay Naked Correcting Concealer (£20) is a demi-matte concealer, which re available in 25 shades, described as being highly pigmented and full coverage with up to 24 hour wear, it has a unique wave tip applicator just like the foundation. You get 10.2g or 0.35oz of product.

The Vice Lip Chemistry Lasting Glassy Tints are available in 12 shades and retail for £19 each. A lightweight but long-lasting lip tint that reacts to the pH level of your lips to create a custom shade. It claims to feel balm-like and nourishing on the list with up to 12 hour wear, which is quite a high claim indeed. The shades are very pretty and range from a lavender purple to your rosy nudes, with something to suit everyone's tastes. Personally, lip products rarely intrigue me.

Now what everyone is most curious about: the foundation. The Stay Naked Weightless Liquid Foundation comes in a flabbergasting 50 shades with quite a balanced, even spectrum of shades that are divided into shade intensities, master tones and undertones. You get 30ml of product which is fairly standard for a foundation, it claims to provide all day up to 24 hour wear, a real skin matte finish, waterproof formula and to be pore-minimizing. I really like the package, it comes with a pump in a beautiful bottle, I definitely appreciate the shade range. It sounds like the midway point between the Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation and the Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation. 

Leesha (xsparkage) compared the Stay Naked Weightless Liquid Foundation to the Naked Skin foundation on her channel - see her video below. Stay Naked is a more matte, longwearing foundation. She really liked the concealer which is worth noting although it is not as full coverage as other concealers like Tarte Shape Tape or Jouer Essential High Coverage Concealer. I think for those of us with oily skin and a preference for matte, long-wearing foundations the new foundation will be a hit. I know on the Urban Decay website they offer different recommendations for application depending on skin type i.e. oily or dry and preference of finish i.e. light or medium coverage. The foundation is medium coverage and from Leesha's video (see below) not as buildable as I prefer whereas the Naked Skin foundation is quite luminous. The Stay Naked Concealer looks really nice and I would love to see what that looks like all over the face.

Overall, my thoughts are skeptical, I am starting to really appreciate more affordable foundations. I think L'Oreal, Maybelline and Makeup Revolution all do great foundations. There are a few high end foundations that I am eager to try, specifically the Nars Natural Radiant Longwear which unfortunately does not have a shade to suit my skin tone which is incredibly frustrating so I reiterate I really appreciate the shade range. I would also be keen to try the Cover FX Power Play foundation which is used a lot by Alyssa Ashley who has the skin of dreams, this foundation is stunning and comes in over 40 shades I believe. Apart from those though it takes a lot for me to want to buy a foundation over £30 as there are so many good quality affordable foundations out there. I would love to know what you guys think, are you thinking of buying anything from the Stay Naked collection? Let me know in the comments below and share your current favourite beauty products as I am always looking for recommendations. Hope you are having an amazing week. Take care.
