Most Helpful Positive Review BEAUTIFUL FOUNDATION
I have been using this foundation for roughly 3 months now, and I absolutely love it. I am a little disappointed by some of the poor reviews, so I want mine to set the record straight:
1. Some people noted that the foundation feels heavy. While I disagree, I think there may be a few explanations for this. First, the users may not be used to full-coverage foundations. With significant pigmentation comes a slightly "heavier" feel on the skin. I solely use full-coverage foundations, and compared to others (like the Estee Lauder Double-Wear, or Tarte Amazonian Clay), the All-Nighter feels much lighter. Second, the users may be applying the foundation in a way that uses more product than is necessary. I find that using a damp beauty sponge is the most successful technique with this foundation because it gives me control and allows me to build up the product in specific areas.
2. Some people also noted that the foundation does not stay on very long. Again, I disagree, so here are some possible causes. First, when makeup companies compile their "claims", most long-wear tests are done with a primer and setting powder (since this is how the majority of users will be applying their makeup). This being said, the longevity of ANY foundation increases when you use a decent primer and setting powder. If this foundation isn't lasting on your skin for as long as it claims to, and you're not taking these precautions, it's more than worth the effort. Second, most foundations will appear to "break-up" or "separate" on the skin if you use too much product. Since this foundation is very full-coverage, it is important to be mindful of this during application! I find that I can get away with using about 1.5 pumps for my entire face and neck without any issues.
I hope this clears up some of the negative feedback left for this product. I truly adore it and consider it a HOLY GRAIL

I really wanted to buy this foundation. I really did; however, I feel like my drugstore foundation does better than this! It is full coverage, I will admit. That didn't change the fact that it glided off after spraying one of my setting sprays onto this. I never had a foundation do that to me. It oxidized WAY too dark. I can usually get away with this, but it was WAY too dark. The creasing was horrible around my nose. I also noticed some missing patches, which makes no sense because I applied the foundation with both a beauty blender and a brush (I thought maybe it needed to be applied differently). It's great coverage, but the cons definitely outweigh the cons.

Love this foundation! I have bad acne and after I apply this you wouldn't even know it! It matches my golden undertones very well. I have oily skin and wish it were a tad bit more matte for me. However I always get a flawless look with every application. I'm a UD junkie!
WHAT FLAWS ???!

Perfect for a full coverage queen !!
Cruelty Free AND amazing quantity!

I switched to this foundation from Estée Lauder's double wear foundation. I switched because they test on animals, even though they claim not to. If you're unfamiliar with the animal testing process, please research it. You will want to switch all your brands :( This foundation goes on smooth and lightweight, yet still covers blemishes and lines. Very good coverage! I was recently in a pool for hours and my friends all noticed my foundation was still almost perfect. Highly recommend! It doesn't dry your skin out either.

This product is really heavy on your skin. I was unhappy with how it went on, it left streaks and looked caked on no matter how little you used. I tried a brush, sponge and fingertips for application.
Urban Decay changed their foundation line and they shouldn't have.
My favorite foundation of all time
Brooklyn from California
The shade is perfect (0.5) and does not oxidize for me! It is a perfect matte but still glowy finish. It does not crease and lasts me all day without deteriorating. Really great for hiding my pores too which I use along with the Dr. Brant pore refining primer.
JJ from Alabama
Shade matching took 2 tries. Customer service was awesome. Not 1 problem.
Will continue to buy!
Tee from New Hamshire
Amazing foundation. This covers everything! It lasts through not only my day, but my workouts. It isn't coming off until you take it off. Flawless.
Advise :DO NOT always go by the " find my shade". I ordered online believing I was a 3.25 which was so light on me. I finally went to the store and The lady said 4.0 would be next shade up, NOT 3.5. That was a surprise to me.
I tried the 4.0. It was a perfect match. I am blonde, hazel eyes, and between a light and medium skin tone.
Loved the feel of it.
Cindy from Johnson City Tn
Even though it wasn't the right color I went with it to see how it would stand up. It did stay put for a long time. Even though a rain storm I got in that night. Loved it.
My favorite foundation!

Amy from MN
This stuff works..it stays r in you wash your face even if you sweat a ton...it will stay! I did use the setting spray also.
GrannyB from Brookwood
The color was to light for my skin. But I love the way it stayed on and it feels really silky
Savannah from Hamilton NJ
I apply this with a beauty blender and it creates a flawless matte finish, I'm obsessed! Great for oily skin!
An1588 from Terrytown LA
Love this product, next purchase I'll go a bit darker. Great coverage for using very little product
Bubbles from Pa
At first it matched my skin town but throughout the day it turned orange like the sun
BronzedByTheSun from Cincinnati, Ohio
This is my new 'go to' foundation. It did take multiple visits to Ulta to get the proper color to match my skin tone. Unfortunately with COVID 19 TESTERS are no longer permitted in the store. Had they been, I would have been able to choose the right color the first time around.
Angel from USA
I suffer from acne scars and I wanted to find the perfect foundation to help cover them. I bought this almost 6 months ago and it is my go to foundation. I can't think of trying anything else! It really does help hide my imperfections.
Grace125 from Pennsylvania
One of the many foundations I tried in order to find my favorite one
I would say this one dries very fast and makes my skin dry so I would moisturizer a lot before applying and do small sections of the face at once but it has Amazing Coverage
Brittany from OH
Bought this in the shade 7.0. As soon as you dab it on and blend it out, it oxidizes to a VERY warm/dark color. It's crazy. I have a medium/tan complexion and this looked ridiculous. Going to try a shade up the 6.0 but not sure if it's worth it. It got so much darker. And the more you blend it out, the more the color changed. If it would've stayed the color it was after immediately applying it would've been the perfect shade.
Holy grail forever and ever!
Samm from Killeen, TX
This is my all time favorite foundation! I have a super oily t-zone and this foundation along with the all nighter setting spray is the bees knees! Highly recommend!
The only con is they don't have a wide variety of colors....I had bought the shade number 5.0 and it was super orange once it oxidized so I went with the 4.0 with and it's still little dark after it oxidized but I make it work and I can't go with 3.5 because it's super fair and pink.
anne from new york
super watery, not a great blend, and to top it off I color matched online and asked if it was correct and it's soooo orange
Love this foundation!!
Awillis from Clanton, AL
I love this product during summertime!
The only foundation I use
Sheebz from Oceanside CA
I've used this for as long as I can remember and it's the only foundation I use. It sits nicely on my skin and doesn't cake up like other foundations. I love that it's buildable; I always apply with a damp sponge for light, even coverage and if I need more, I just add a second layer.
Best full coverage foundation!
Brooke from PA
This is the best full coverage foundation that I have found yet. It has great coverage for blemishes, age spots, dark circles, etc. It lasts all day long and provides a fresh and flawless look despite humidity. I apply this with a sponge for an airbrush finish. It is light feeling on the face as well.
I have tried alot of foundation and this is one of my top.
Tina from Piedmont, Ok
Stays on and nice full coverage without having to use alot. Lightweight on my skin too.
It's a good product
Ac from Stockton
I love this foundation and it's the only one I use..
