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.

I have been using this foundation for about 4 years now. I have very very oily skin, light acne. And this has by far been the best foundation I've tried. I've tried MAC, L'Oréal..ALL kinds. High end brands to drug store brands. and when I do try to switch it up, regret it. I always go back to my All Nighter. Yes it does last the the hours it claims it does. I do my make up at 6:15 am, go about my day, get home about 6:00 pm and by then If I would decide to go for dinner , all I do is pat some oil off and add some blush. My face is still beautifully covered and good to go.

I always love this product it goes on and blends great. Also it stays on a lot longer than any other foundation I've tried.

I've been searching for a good coverage foundation to use with my Jeffree Star concealer and finally found one that looks great.
Not worth it.
courtschmidt from Hattiesburg, MS
I have tried to like this foundation so much but every time I where it, I am disappointed. It clings to powder products and separates terribly bad on my nose and chin.
Don't do it!!
Mel from Arizona
The color shade you pick is not the same after it oxidizes. I have used many different brands and what's interesting is that this is the only brand that does that. Also, if you cry while watering it or even sweat, you'll have streaks on your face. Again, never had that happen with any other brand. It's so drying too. I'd just stay away from this mess!

The foundation itself is good but it oxidizes soooo bad. The color might look perfect when you put it on but give it 30 minutes and you're a carrot
ALL NIGHTER LIQUID FOUNDATION URBAN DECAY
Aliboo17 from Manalapan, NJ
I would not recommend this foundation. By the middle of the day my skin looked very texturized. It made me look old and leathery. I believe it is because I didn't use a primer, but any foundation that I have to use a primer is a no for me because I do not always have the time in my beauty routine to use a primer. I would not purchase this product ever again.

I wanted to try something different as I usually use MAC powder/fountain. I'll be sticking to the MAC. It feels very heavy and also has a shine that makes you look oily. It left creases around my nose and places that looked missed. Almost patchy looking. Maybe it'll work for you but I hated it.
Loved but got wrong color
SexyStephyyyy from Sacramento CA
I love the feeling of this foundation as well as the coverage. It's hard to match my skin color to it tho because it oxidized into a way darker color. I looked orange after putting on setting powder.
AMAZING FOUNDATION, BEST OUT HANDS DOWN!
Aryel from Dallas, TX
Long wear and waterproof. Very useful for outdoor events and can withstand sweat. Full pigmentation but light and buildable for every say wear or dressing up. Best uses with a good Matte Primer/ moisturizer.
Love this foundation!
Jo from Conroe, TX
I have been using this foundation for about 2 years now. A wonderful friend that works at Ulta introduced this product to me. He's a bigger gentleman and we laughed about the hassle of combination skin which is why he brought up my trying this foundation when it came out. I range from 7.5 to 7.75 to even an 8.0 when I'm exposed to more and more sunlight. Right now I'm about to order a 7.0 because this years Texas winter is lacking a bit more of sun than usual.
I do wish this foundation didn't rub off easily and I always hate when I worry about hugging friends/family. I constantly have to remember to use setting powder and spray which I often forget the spray. Thankfully with my position I don't have to worry about that issue often.
Having combination skin, this foundation makes my skin feel wonderful! I never have dry spots nor do I have to worry too much about oil. Sometimes I do have to reapply powder around my nose and T-zone but it's very little that is needed.
It is more than I truly would like to pay, but because of the regulated pump I am able to extend the life of a tube to about 3 months before needing to buy another.
I receive many compliments on my skin since I've been using this product so, overall I cannot complain.
I wouldn't buy it again

It would've been nice to get matched for the right color instead of being lied to by a worker.
Not worth the cost

Loved the full coverage this foundation has when you first apply but soon after application it oxides and leaves you feeling orange. It also doesn't allowing blending as it comes off when you attempt to contour
my new favorite foundation e v e r !!!!

Okay, I'm going to be honest– today was my first time ever using this foundation but I'm hooked enough to leave a review now.
I've always used drug store brand foundations, affordability being a key factor. But it got to a point that I couldn't find any that were doing what I needed them to in all aspects for my skin. I tried it cosmetics cc cream and I absolutely still love it but I was on the hunt for something a little more full coverage. I got so many recommendations for UD, but seeing some of the negative reviews turned me away for the longest time because my skin can be temperamental and hard to please. I finally tried it though and I'm in love.
The associate helped color match me (by guessing because of COVID) and she was spot on. I primed, literally used 1.5 pumps of the foundation, spot concealed where I'm breaking out and set it.
My makeup hasn't moved all day!!! It's just matte enough without being dull and it doesn't feel heavy at all. BEST DECISION EVER.

This is the best foundation, I've tried others but always comes back to this. I love this foundation
Love the coverage
Rubi GG from Mcallen, TX
Excellent coverage, i love it!! I just haven't find the right shade for me, according to the girls in ulta i was a 4.5 and i find it too dark for me so i went again and i bought 4.0 and it was too yellow :(
Amazing if you like full coverage
Lala from Reno, NV
I love this foundation. I first bought it for a trip to Disney and it didn't budge the whole day. It is full coverage and thiccc so keep that in mind if you have dry skin or don't like thick foundation. But this foundation is amazing.

Use this product w/Urban DeCay primer & setting & finishing sprays. Although I ordered the incorrect color for my complexion, I managed to make it work w/a color corrector to give me a matte finish along w/the Urban DeCay pressed powder
Cristina from Georgia
I was really excited to try this foundation. I love the feeling of it on my skin, I don't look oily all day, and it doesn't make me have smile lines for hours. BUT, it oxidizes, leaves patchy spots on my face and breaks apart on my nose,forehead, and chin.

I have acne scars and this makes my skin look amazing!

Beautiful looking finish
JessiCan from WI
My skin is VERY oily. I have to usually blot every two hours with most other foundations I've tried from Dior, Estée Lauder, Clinique, and Tarte. This product looks flawless on my face, I don't need to blot for 6 hours. I'm very impressed the product isn't drying or cakey on my skin.
If you've tried other matte foundations and are unsure about them, give this a go! I would recommend!
Jen from St Louis
Oxidation is crazy, but the coverage and the way it wears is wonderful.
happybabe from Omaha, NE
This has been my go-to full coverage foundation for at least 5 years now! It does oxidize but I find it suites my skin tone better when it does. Haven't found a better full coverage foundation since this one!
Keelie from Chattanooga, TN
I love this stuff!! I got a shade lighter than what I thought I should get. it does oxidize a lot, but it turns more tan than orange. I always use cool undertone colors. The all nighter concealer was horribly orange on my skin and is definitely a no go unless you have warm undertones. This foundation feels completely weightless and looks SO GOOD in all kinds of lighting.
