Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid Review




Hi Divas

This is going to be a long post, so grab your popcorn and coke and hold on to your seats! In this post I am featuring Urban Decay's Color Correcting Fluids. There are 6 shades in the range and I have four of them. These correcting fluids are described as a light weight formula that instantly conceals flaws, blurs imperfections while leaving an illuminated and bright skin. They are infused with Vitamin C and E which brightens and repairs skin from sun damage. At first glance colour correcting products can seem a little daunting to use. It literally looks like something that belongs in a 5 year old colouring box. Yet, just as a child learns how complimentary colours work in art class, so do we learn how to correct our flaws with colours in makeup! Colour correcting is an innovative makeup technique that has been used by makeup artist worldwide. They create flawless looks on all the A-list celebrities you see walking the red carpet. Now you can have this magical technique right in your own makeup bag and look flawless too.


The Urban Decay Color Correctors come in 5ml of product and sleek tube plastic packaging similar to their concealers. In each tube the colours are visible which make it easy to identify when using the products especially in a hurry or on the go. Each colour targets specific problems on your face. The Yellow corrects dullness and instantly removes darkness on the face. The Lavender shade illuminates and brightens any sallowness (unhealthy yellow or brown tint on the skin). The Peach corrects any under eye dark circles and dark spots. Lastly the Green shade covers redness and fresh blemishes. Each colour cancels out any unwanted pigmentation or blemish colours on your face. For example, green cancels out redness and peach cancels out darkness on the skin. Once blended you create an even canvas to apply your foundation. Your skin will appear smooth and blemish free with no pigmentation problems. We use this makeup technique as a temporary solution to your problem. Great skin care will eliminate the problem all together but makeup helps us to conceal and hide it in a jiffy. It's like magic I tell you!


The Urban Decay correctors have a pastel tone to them but they are highly pigmented. A little goes a long way when using them. The formula is light weight and glides like a dream on the skin. The liquid texture covers all the specific areas well and blend out effortlessly. I like to use my fingers to press the product into my skin. I only blend it out half way, as too much blending may remove the product altogether which defeats the purpose in the first place. The key to using these products is to spot conceal and not apply these with a heavy hand all over your face. Stand in a mirror and observe your skin. Do you have under eye dark circles? Are there any red patches on your skin? Does your face look dull and need an extra boost of radiance? If the answer is yes to any of these questions you can use a tiny amount of the colour correctors to hide and conceal. As you can see below, I used the peach shade under my eyes to conceal my dark circles. The yellow tint I placed on the bridge of my nose and eye lid area to brighten and highlight. I too placed the lavender colour on my forehead, cupids bow, chin and top of my cheek bones to highlight and illuminate the area. I had some blemishes on my cheek and forehead therefore I used the green to spot conceal and cover redness on the sides of my nose and mouth.

Welcome to  my SEXY face...

You have to apply colour correctors before you blend out your foundation. It is important to note that you do not have to use all the colour correctors at once. Only use those that are needed for specific problems at the time. The Urban Decay correctors sit comfortably on the skin. It dries down to a semi matte finish, hence once you apply your foundation it does not feel like you are tugging over the extra product on your face. It works well with applying any foundation and wears pleasantly under any base. It does not move around or break down on the face throughout the day either. The Results are astounding. Look at my skin before I applied foundation and now look at my skin after foundation below. My face looks completely flawless! I am blemish free and it looks like I have an Instagram filter on my face. These colour correctors are amazing and do an excellent job in concealing and blurring unwanted pigmentation problems. They really are great products to have in your makeup kit. I even applied these on my mom and sisters face and they were just as surprised as I was. My sister has dry skin, where as I have combination skin and it worked perfectly on both our skin types.

 I look normal again.... Well Almost! ;-)

These correctors really do give a full coverage makeup look. I love that it is not heavy on the skin but looks perfect. It blurs yet illuminates my face. It does not drag it down or look cakey. I prefer to use these products on special occasions as it covers up all my deepest darkest secrets. On an everyday basis I prefer a more natural makeup look. My face does not look this flawless on an average day therefore I prefer to use these as an extra ''va va voom'' step when I really want to look glamorous and pristine. If you suffer from serious pigmentation issues, using these everyday will be effortless, as they are very user friendly and do an amazing job. The only two cons I have with these products are that they do not have enough shades for all women of colour. These shades on offer are very pastel and may look grey on deeper skin tones and not cover anything in fact. The second con is the price for the amount of product you are getting. It is quite steep even though it works like magic. Despite these cons, I definitely recommend these to anyone looking for an excellent high-end colour corrector. They will not disappoint.


Thank you so much for reading.
Lots of love.
Divalicious Kisses!

Desle, HAHAHAHA Girl, I couldn't stop laughing at the faces you made! You are kicks! I've seen these, but never tried them. So glad to hear they worked and they do help out. I love color correcting. It helps out those problem areas. I didn't think you had any problem areas. The final look is absolutely beautiful. Great review.
