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.

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.

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!

Only foundation for me
Kati from MN
I love this foundation. I like a natural look and I can achieve that with this foundation.
I highly recommend this product
Steffany from Resaca Ga.
30 nn is my perfect color match in this product. This leaves beautiful long wear finish finish after using the all nighter setting spray. Looks better and better through out the day!
Not for me
CD24 from Houston, TX
Not sure that I would use this product again. I really wanted to like it but it did not look good on me at all. Maybe I ordered the wrong color & another color would have made a huge difference. The product did not blend into my skin. I tried several face preps but the powder just looked caked on and sad. I tried it on my teen daughter and it looked a bit better - fewer lines for it to get stuck in. But neither of us loved it.
Love the product! Urban decay never disappoints.
sarah from South Carolina
product is great. Ultra customer service was not great!
Literally the best powder ever
Cheyy from Arizona
Literally the best powder I've ever tried and I've tried a lot!! My skin does not like liquid (its dry and oily) so I have to use powder and let me tell you....this powder is so awesome. It stays on all day, it's not cakey, matches my skin perfectly, it blends in well, and it doesn't show my dry patches!! Living in Arizona it's hard to find makeup that lasts and this powder has got it!
Pan is really small
Kaykay from Salt lake city
I have dry skin and this doesn't make me feel chalky and tight! It is so smooth and doesn't take away my glow! Good coverage, I use it without foundation or concealer! This is my go to powder now BUT the pan is teeny tiny! You get VERY LITTLE product for how expensive it is it's ridiculous. I am very disappointed at that aspect and it may defer me from stocking up.
Beka from Virginia Beach, VA
Perfect light foundation that covers foundation! This does not go on heavy and does not have a caked on look yet still provides full coverage of all my blemishes.
I do love the powder foundation.
Krgmorris from Oklahoma
It's great coverage but doesn't last all day like MAC. Still a MAC fan
This is my new go-to foundation
matilderp from undisclosed
I've been looking for a good powder foundation for a while now, because I wanted something that was quicker and easier to apply than liquid foundation since I don't have a lot of extra time in the morning. I bought The Fix after reading the positive reviews, and I love it. It provides light to medium coverage, is easy to apply, keeps my nose matte and doesn't smear or get patchy, which I really appreciate. I feel like liquid foundation is so much more sensitive and it's always immediately obvious if you've missed a spot or rubbed some of it off, but this foundation is much more forgiving and also blends easily into my skin instead of just sitting on top of it like I sometimes feel liquid foundation does. All in all, I definitely recommend this product and will continue to use it.

This powder is gross on large pores! It sits and makes your skin show the pores and cakes!
Aurora56 from Lafayette Indiana
I got the urban decay powder foundation a few months ago and have been wearing it off and on. For events mainly. I don't wear daily cuz I am a stay home mom and work out. When i do i love to look natural. I am getting older so my crows feet are showing around my eyes and a few other lines too. This foundation looks very natural on me and i did not touch it up at all throughout my day. I recommend.
Urban Decay is a BOP
Jeremy from Dover de
I love this powder foundation It's definitely going to be a staple in my kit. What also amazes me is I think this is the first time I've ever been able to find an EXACT shade for my complexion. Also my contour blends phenomenally into this powder and the finish is lovely. It's a BOP.
Marirud from Texas
I use this product when I have to rush out the door and don't want to leave on a bare face, I do use about 2-3 products before it due to my dry skin at the moment.
I honestly love this product and the way it feels is great.
The Bookie from New Orleans, LA
Patchy, uneven coverage. The slight redness in my cheeks was clearly visible after just a couple of hours. The finish was unflattering-very powdery. I use another brand that sort of melts into a nice finish and will stick with that one
Morgan from Portland, OR
Literally melts into my skin!!!
My everyday foundation
mimi27 from undisclosed
I like this powder foundation. Usually I use liquid foundation but this powder foundation is really nice. It is lightweights, application is smooth, and has a buildable coverage. I also like the matte finish which makes my face look smooth and polished and controls my oily t- zone. The foundation is is long lasting and it is best to pair it with the all nighter setting spray. I realized that this pairing yields the best results. Overall this is is nice foundation that provides lightweight, medium coverage. I use it as my everyday, simple makeup routine.
