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 Smooth and even, matte medium coverage
I received this in exchange for my honest review and here it is. I easily chose my color online. When I received it, I thought it may be too light but it matched my skin perfectly. I am a light-medium complexion with neutral undertones and went with 40NN. The packaging is gorgeous and so portable and easy to carry along in your makeup bag. The included charcoal sponge is everything. I also tried using my own sponge and a makeup brush but really preferred their included sponge for application. I tried multiple uses. I always prep my skin well so it is nicely moisturized. I did try this with and without primer (I use FAB's coconut primer because I have a drier skin type and prefer a dewier finish). I found that this gives a really smooth and even finish and covered the redness in my cheeks. It even covered my dark circles pretty well but of course I still need concealer. This was surprisingly smooth and did not settle into fine lines or make me look older like other powder formulas. It also didn't make my skin feel dry or parched. This is great for an everyday or on the go look. I found that it is not long lasting though but you can take it with you. I knocked off stars for this and for the fact that you don't get a lot of product in the compact vs other powder compacts On the market. Alternatively, I tried this over my regular liquid foundation as a setting powder for around my tzone and even under my eyes and was surprised that I actually preferred it for that use! Overall this gives more of a matte look which is not my personal preference - I used a balm highlighter to enhance some glow - therefore I would not repurchase for myself but if you're willing to spend a little more for less product and matte is your thing, maybe give this a try since the application is so smooth and the packaging is so beautiful and portable. My pics are me with just the foundation and then me a few hours later with added blush and eye makeup.

Great product. It blends well and lasts. Can be applied lightly or darkly depending on how much coverage you want.

This powder matches my skin tone EXACTLY. The packaging is absolutely beautiful, and I use this every day now.
wert from Brooklyn,NY
This has quickly become one of my favorite powders. I like to use this more like a setting powder than an actual foundation. I like use it to set my under eye concealer and i find that it helps to keep it from creasing.If you're looking for something like that, definitely give this powder a go!
Perfect light makeup with great coverage

Rennlydia from Augusta Ga
I used urban decay pressed powder since I was younger in my teens. I was so upset when they discontinued it as I was an adult. I have been searching for YEARS for a powder that compares. This powder is exactly like what it used to be! I am so happy it is back! Please urban decay never get rid of this one !

I am a 420 in Fenty and 355 in Maybelline Fit Matte and my color is 70WO. This color is perfect for me. Its light and does not look ashy like some powders.
Beautiful foundation in a small package.
anonymous from Orlando, FL
This is beautiful, lovely foundation, and I love the way it makes my skin look. It is, however, not a lot of foundation for the price. The color is wonderful and the application is easy, plus the size is convenient.
Redd from Trf, Minnesota
The best pressed powder I've ever had! I got 20CP. Its the perfect undertone, and soo smooth! Like its not just a powder it makes my foundation look, just look that much better without making it darker or lighter.
It doesn't cover that well

I do like this powder foundation on my natural days; it's lightweight and I don't feel cakey HOWEVER, flashback 💔
Urban decay is the best!!!
Britt from Apple valley
I used this after I apply my urban decay liquid foundation and concealer. It always gives that finishing touch to a flawless face. It not for a natrual look but if you want to get dolled up this is the way to go.
Loved it and would buy again! Like how it feels 🌺

Good coverage, great staying power and easy to use
Meg from Yorktown, Va
I am a Urban Decay junkie. This is the one brand that I've found that doesn't irritate my skin due to my sensitivity. It gives me the right coverage to make my skin look natural.
Lola H. from Texas
one of the few powder foundations that actually matches my skin tone! Love everything about it!
Silky soft and beautiful coverage
AutumnRoseBeauty from Sun Prairie Wisconsin
I love powder foundations for their versatility. In general I do not use any foundation, just concealer, primer and a little powder to even out my skin. This one is heavenly! Very silky soft, smooth and the color melted into my skin it was perfect! The bonus is my skin can be on the oily side and with this powder I hardly get any shine at all. Use a setting spray and you're good to go, hardly transferred on my mask either.
KK from Houston, Tx
I've never used this brand before but I must say it matches flawlessly! It goes on very well but I will say after a few hours it gets very oily!
I love this product!!!

Jessicat from Odessa, TX
This product is great. The coverage and color match. However, for what you pay you would think there would be more of it. I think you are paying for the packaging. If you use regularly it would probably be gone in 2 weeks...:( I will not be buying again even though I like it..
UrbanDecay is a great product!
