Most Helpful Positive Review Where has this foundation been all my life?!
First surprise: I actually chose the right color for my skin tone! Urban Decay does such a good job of providing a fantastic range of colors so everybody can find their perfect match! You don't just choose one simple color; you choose your tone intensity (Fair/Light/Medium/Dark/Deep), then mastertone (Cool/Neutral/Warm), and lastly, your skin's undertone (Pink/Blue/Green). As simple as they make it, I was still worried I hadn't selected the right color, so I was really surprised when my compact arrived and I gave the powder a quick test: perfect match!
My next concern was how drying or drying the powder would be. Once again, I was delighted to find that it went on smoothly and didn't make my skin look or feel flaky or dry. Amazing. The first day I wore it, I didn't really want to be wearing makeup, so I moisturized my skin after cleansing and then applied my UD powder foundation. It gave me just the right amount of coverage to hide the redness of my natural tone (and the bane of my beauty life) without making it obvious that I was wearing any makeup at all. And that coverage lasted all day with no touchups or attention needed. Natural and low-maintenance medium coverage that lasts all day? YES, PLEASE!
I think I have found The Foundation...the one I never believed existed, the secret that those girls with perfect-looking skin must have discovered long before I knew such a product was possible. Thank you, Urban Decay! This foundation is potentially life-changing!
Most Helpful Critical Review Love color but powder crumbles after 1st use
I bought this because I was looking for a new powder foundation. I love the product but am so disappointed that after the first use the powder cracked in the case. The photo attached is how the powder looks in the case after my second day of using it. I used a brush to apply and a sponge to touch up around my eyes. At this rate the powder will crumble and not last more than a week or two.

Great coverage for a powder foundation without looking cakey. It doesn't blend into the skin quite as easily as I would like though. Almost like it needs a setting mist to work best. For the price, I'd expect a bit better.
Best powder foundation ever!!!
Angie from Texas
Complete coverage of blemishes and imperfections. Stays on for my full 12 hour shifts. I absolutely love it.
Nikki from Olympia wa
Great coverage when using sponge
Jax from OREGON
Got this on sale and I loved it so much I went back and bought a second one. It blurrs, mattifies, controls oil, and lasts all day.
Feels light and natural.on my skin.
Cali from Ohio
Feels nice on your skin. Lasts about 9 hours on my face. Evens out complexion. Feels " silky" when applied even though it's a powder. Another great UD product.
kim from Lansing, MI
The packaging is so cheap! The compact is thin and flimsy. The product itself is beautiful, full coverage and smooth, but almost no product is actually in it.
Kitty Karina from Wildomar, California
Bought as a Christmas gift, and the receiver was very happy with the Urban Decay selection.
Love the coverage
Lara from Huntsville AL
I love the coverage!!
ExtraSpicy from VA
So the minus one star is for how little product there is. That being said, it's a great powder and I use it mainly for touch ups. Very beautiful compact with nice mirror and sponge applicator that has its own compartment. I've noticed the center of the powder already looks like it might crumble so maybe try to sweep your brush on the edge of the compact?
Idk but I like it enough to repurchase on sale.
Stowe71 from Charlotte NC
The packaging is CHEAP. The product is nice, but there isn't much of it, I'll probably hit pan in a week. Will return.
Best pressed powder
FDorris from Michigan
This is one of the best pressed powders, with a layer of primer underneath it goes on so smooth and looks like it's not even there. Made my skin look even and soft.
Excellent but overpriced
Sweetrin from Florida
This is a BEAUTIFUL powder foundation. I have dry skin and I use this after a moisturizer and the Glamglow glowstarter. The finish is perfect, not powdery or cakey at all, somehow just disappears but still has great coverage. UNFORTUNATELY you get a fifth of the amount of a normal foundation, for a pretty high price. I got it on sale, and would definitely purchase it again but only on sale.
Ryann from Muskegon
I was very impressed with this foundation. It blended well with my skin and they were not lying when they said it doesn't transfer! Believe me, I tested it. This just increased my love for urban decay products.
Love this product!!!
Nena 3422 from South Carolina
I ended up buying this powder when the other brand I wanted to try was sold out. I usually go with a liquid foundation. This covers just like a liquid foundation but it's so much better! I get matte coverage with a light airy feeling on my face. I have redness near my nose and this covers it beautifully. I definitely love this powder.
JayEss from USA
I use this powder to cover up biopsy scars that left slight indents, I find anything cream based is too shiny and calls attention to them. Love the silky feel of the powder, you can layer it on or buff it lightly depending on how much coverage you want. I use two colors, sometimes you need more yellow undertones to offset redness. Will definitely buy again. Also, vegan and cruelty free 👌🏻
Wonderful full coverage buildable foundation
Cheeyl from Oneonta, NY
Love the coverage and feels soft to the touch matte finish. Not sticky at all.
Great dewy coverage
Jess the Chill Girly Girl from McDonald PA
I want a little extra coverage with my liquid foundation. Didn't want a powder that looked cakey. This foundation gives me a dewy coverage when using a moist sponge applicator
i should've returned it
maddy from oklahoma
i've had it less than a month and have already started hitting the pan. it's a pathetic amount of product in here for the price. it provides good coverage but doesn't spread well, appears patchy, and moves across your skin/comes off with a simple swipe of the finger, despite what other products you use with it. it's too late to return it now that i'm hitting pan, but i'm incredibly disappointed.
Tiffany from Woodstock, ga
I love this powder! I used to wear liquid foundation, concealer, and powder pre-covid. I had to stop wearing all makeup because I was breaking out so bad from the masks. Now that the mandate is over my skin is still sensitive to makeup, so I wanted something light, but could still cover my breakouts. THIS STUFF IS BOMB!! I used no liquid at all, and my skin is so happy! My face takes 5 min, and I don't have a layer of oil by the end of that day! I highly recommend this product!!
I really don't get it
Ariel38 from South Dakota
There is a tiny amount of product. Like a comically tiny amount. Seriously. But beyond that, it just doesn't do any favors for your skin. Just no. No no no.
Tabbykatt from Kansas
I tried out several inexpensive powders and brought them back . I'm sorry to say that this product performed as bad as a $5 powder. It had poor coverage, didn't spread well, and definitely doesn't live up to the powder foundation that UD used to make but discontinued, the compact and sponge were cheap also. I returned it.
Allison from Chicago, IL
I learned that I'm allergic to titanium, which is an ingredient in many skin powders. After reading the ingredient list of nearly every brand in the store, I picked this up and was pleased to see there was no titanium! I didn't look at it sooner because of the price. That's the only down side.
Cherry from Arizona
I'm pleasantly surprised with the color and coverage this foundation offers, especially for powder! Long lasting and light feeling. I did have a bit of a zit after first wear, but I have sensitive skin to everything. It did make my larger pours more noticeable, but all and all great product. Bigger than expected, and yet not big enough.
I would definitely buy again
Silver Fox from Virginia
Love the product and will be purchasing other Stay Naked items.
My favorite powder foundation
justamom from Nebraska
I love using this when I am running short on time or just running out of the house and I don't want to do a full face.
