Most Helpful Positive Review Wrong shade, but beautiful when used without powde
I feel privileged to be able to be one of the first to try this through Influenster. I will say I had to try several times to get this foundation right for my combination skin.
I would not recommend powdering the whole face— it kills the finish of this product and even dewy setting sprays can not bring back the radiance.
I did not find the need to prime since I'm using really hydrating serum and moisturizer before putting this foundation on.
I would not recommend using a brush— I had better results with a sponge and my fingers. I still found it sticking to my pores and dry areas a bit, but it built up really nicely from sheer to medium and my concerns were alleviated then.
This coverage lasts a while but I did notice some creasing. I would say that touch ups are usually needed for dewy foundations anyway just because of their nature. There is quite a bit of transfer if you don't use powder (and as I said, I wouldn't use powder) and that is also expected due to the nature of a radiant product.
I have four stars because in person this looks beautiful. I did not choose the best shade for me— in hindsight, i would go one darker. But the dewy finish is stunning and the coverage (for a radiant product) actually blew me away. It works well with my shape tape concealer and makes my skin look really healthy. I'll combine this with more bronzer to fix my shade issue and keep using it.
Most Helpful Critical Review My honest opinion!!!
I tried this out for 2 days with different techniques 1st day I added this product on only to test out how moisturizing it is since it says 24-hour hydration. I did a 4 hr check-in and it was still good in my opinion. I did an 8 hr check-in and it started looking glowy but with an oily type of look if that makes any sense(could be the 24-hour glow and moisturizer factor of this product combined), and it looked like it started to want to break up with minimal fine lines under my eyes, nose, and in between my eyebrows. 2nd day added moisturizer and primer I did a 4 hr check-in it looked nice a little glow but not an oily look like the first time. I did a 10-hour check-in not so good it was breaking up everywhere and at that point, I was ready to remove it.
Cons: Not buildable, coverage, the price for the size, and doesn't blend well with a brush you can see little brush streaks. Pros: Texture, lightness, color match, blends nicely with a wet sponge, and hydration.
Review/opinion: If you have dry skin I wouldn't recommend that you use this alone I would add a moisturizer with this product, if you have oily skin I would suggest using a powder with this product, if you have combination skin I guess you'd have to wing it and get used to learning what works best for you when using this product and if you have normal skin this would work best for you. If you have dark spot and looking for coverage this isn't the product for you but if you have spots that are light or a little redness this would work fine keep in mind I feel like this is on the lighter side of a medium coverage so the lighter the spots and redness the easier this can coat. This would be a pick as a light tinted moisturizer and as a few hours wear 6 hours top.

Breaks up on skin. Weird orange oxidation. Not even primer could save this on my combo skin.
Looks like skin!

I love Urban Decay base products; the original Stay Naked foundation & concealer have been my holy grail since they came out. I have dry skin and I couldn't wait to try this! I bought it at my local Ulta on launch day. I love it! It's more of a tinted moisturizer rather than medium-coverage from my personal experience, but it's beautiful to wear to work and looked great at the end of the day despite my mask (it does transfer a small amount).

Had high hopes for this one...just didn't work for me...the medium coverage disappeared off my skin within 10 minutes and began to break down, and I have what I would consider normal skin type. Stayed tacky on skin, rub off instantly anywhere you even mildy touch. Went back in with my foundation brush to add extra for more coverage and literally took off the orginal found I put on. Will be returning, maybe they'll get the kinks worked out of it at some point but for now I would definitely save your money.

I was somewhat skeptical as I am fair and have a difficult time finding foundation. I purchased # 20 and it is perfect! I also have dry skin and I have no problems with this. It blends and wears all day without a problem. I would purchase again and would highly recommend!
Wow this foundation is so natural looking.
CP from Houston
I would highly recommend this foundation for anyone looking for a medium coverage tinted moisturizer. It looks super skin like and it lasted for 8hrs+ without coming off.I have combo skin and this worked great on me.
Sharon from ME
I don't leave a ton of reviews but I didn't go in with high expectations, I feel that most complexion makeup disappoints me; but I love this. It made me giddy. I have been using It Cosmetics CC cream for years but I have been searching for something not so full coverage and thick. Everything I have tried to replace it has been v disappointing.
I tried this on a whim, and let me tell you I LOVE it. I am 38 and this goes on smoothly without settling into the expression line on my forehead. It gives the exact amount of coverage I am looking for, and the Ultra Fair shade is a winner for me.
Ellie from AZ
I use the milk hydro grip primer and i lightly stipple my byterry hyaluronic setting powder over it. that combination of products is what works for me. Im 37 and i have normal skin. does leave my skin dewy and more natural looking.I feel like this is good for anyone that doesn't want that "cakey" look that most full coverage foundations leave. I think this is great for anyone of any age to use.
I will say though that this product is thicker for "medium" coverage and that threw me off a bit. but once I buffed it out with my brush it did blend very nicely. overall I'm impressed.
They better never stop selling this!!
Nicole from Minnesota
I will never buy another face coverage product. Lightweight, blurring, and keeps my skin moisturized all day without feeling oily. I have combination skin and this is a 10/10!!
Nice product, not for me
Nicki from Ct
Nice application, and looked good once you put it on. Very glowey and didn't cover up much.
Lily from SC
Love this foundation! It's light to medium buildable coverage. It makes my skin look so fresh and dewy, even if I'm breaking out my skin looks smooth with this foundation. A little bit of the foundation goes a long way. I think using a beauty blender or sponge is the best way to apply it. Very nice for normal to dry skin. Will definitely repurchase
This is great!
Aga from TX
My ONLY complaint is the lack of shades. I think I actually need to mix two together to get the perfect shade. 40 is a tad dark and 30 is too light. I think I'll mix them to see what I get because I love the formula. It's light weight and very moisturizing but FULL coverage. Coming from someone that has cystic acne, it covers it all. We'll see over time how it effects my skin.
I so enjoyed this product it's not heavy at all great prod
Yammy from New York
I enjoy this product great coverage an not heavy at all what I was looking for
Definitely worth trying
Patti from Chicago
I have normal skin, larger pores on nose and chin, slight hyperpigmentation. This worked well over moisturizer ( no primer) I tried it without moisturizer and didn't think the coverage was as seamless. Medium coverage. It is not shiny or greasy. Did not accentuate pores.
I usually wear light or light medium in foundations (Fenty 200, Estée Lauder Fresco ) and the color 30 is working well for me. I actually thought it was too light right out of the tube but once applied it looks right for me. Wears well and I recommend it. I wear Hourglass dim light powder over it and together they create a soft blur focus look. Like healthy skin. I am recommending to friends. Just be aware that shades run on the lighter side if you are trying to chose between two shades.

This foundation is honestly so amazing! It gives me the medium coverage I want with a glow that isn't too over the top. You have to try it out! I don't think I'll be going back to my other foundations..
Phoenix Lisbon from Richmond, VA
First of all, this was one of the few neutral foundations that wasn't yellow on me, so that impressed me a lot right off the bat. I was also surprised at the coverage. Most tinted moisturizers I've used don't have that much coverage so I was happy with that too. This is very comfortable. It's not heavy at all. It isn't a natural or matte finish though. It is very very dewy. I highly suggest setting with powder, at least lightly because it is quite an intense dewy finish. It could be the primer I used but I've never had this issue with any other products and this primer. All in all great product.
HOLY GRAIL FOUNDATION
skysbeautyyt from Ohio
I am so shocked about how well this wears on the skin and especially how long it wears! the first time I tested this out for a foundation review I wore it for 15 hours. now I did at it with a light powder and setting spray but the longevity was phenomenal and it wears so beautifully on the skin. it looks like natural skin. like you legit have nothing on you at all. my husband thought I wasn't wearing any Foundation at all that day. it didn't wear off either! it stayed in place. I am 30 years old with dry skin textured Skin along with large pores. this didn't settle into my fine lines/ wrinkles. nor did it slightly fade through the day. it looks so beautiful and has light to medium coverage that is able to be built up. it doesn't layer funky either when being built up or look cakey at all. it blends so easily to. has a creamy light texture to it like a Silky feel when blending out the product. I also have sensitive skin that breaks out very easily. I have been wearing this everyday since I got it. all my preferred foundations have been set aside bc I want to use this everyday so much! I also wear a mask at work and it didn't even badly transfer at all!
Not a fan
polymnia from Chicago
I bought it because a youtuber I really like raved about it, it's not all that! It's very glowy but it settles in my expression lines
Great for dry skin
Courtney from Pittsburgh, PA
I was very excited to try this as I have very dry, flaky skin and it is hard for me to find a foundation that doesn't bring out my dry skin. This gives me a very glowy look and I don't see ANY dry skin. It is not a full coverage foundation but it is a thicker tinted moisturizer and gives me an even skin tone. I can even apply my usual contour over top. Love this!!
Did not work for me at all
dawntreader from Asheville, NC
I was so excited to try this product. Such a let down. It would not blend into my skin—it was patchy and flaking off as I tried to apply it. Additionally, it was too light for me, as I suspected it might be. The next darker shade was not available, and the Ulta employee assured me this would look good.
Ajmac from MD
So this is basically a CC cream, which I love, but its not overly greasy like most are. It is, however, THICK. It's very hydrating, and seems to have decent coverage. Not sure if it's buildable or not as I prefer to have a light application. I used my NYX mineral setting powder after using this and it's last all day. I did get a little oily after about 7 hours, but I expected that and I'm not upset with it (I have INCREDIBLY oily skin so that's just my skin, not the product) it did not separate on my skin at all, which I love and it did not oxidize. Overall, I really like this product.
Sundance girl from Mountains and hills
I usually love tinted moisturizers. Urban decays old one and done was my absolute favorite. This didn't feel hydrating to me and I have combo skin that leans more oily. It made every pore on my face stand out and almost nonexistent wrinkles looked much worse. Every flaw I had became front and center. Wouldn't buy again.
Shelby from Ogden Utah
My skin is dry and I have hunted and hunted for a foundation that would work for my skin and this is it!!! I love this foundation!!
niniannxo from undisclosed
Blends great into skin, a little does go along way. However, would still love a bit more. It does give a glamorous glow and applying it is so simple.
not a tinted moisturizer
ginxy13th from undisclosed
I got this as part of a #voxbox campaign from @influenster. I wish I could say I loved this but I can't. it is marketed as a full coverage tinted moisturizer like a bb cream but it really is just a foundation. do not apply with dry skin unless you are properly moisturized as it will cake in 2 hours
Michelle from Ogden Utah
I have hunted and hunted for a foundation that works for mature dry skin!!! I LOVE how it looks on, it doesn't cake and it's not drying. I'm loving this foundation!!
