All Nighter Liquid Foundation lives up to its name, offering serious coverage that resists fading for the duration of wear. The liquid texture and matte finish are ideal for those with oily skin, offering a comfortable lightweight feel despite its strong opacity.
That said, All Nighter isn't a completely worry-free foundation; for example, it tends to draw more attention to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles if you've got them.
Dispensed via a pump bottle, a little goes a long with this highly pigmented foundation. It's a good thing Urban Decay knows what they're doing when it comes to creating flattering shades (24 to be exact) for a wide range of skin tones, because with this much coverage, a precise color match is crucial. You also need to be diligent about blending—we found a combination of using our fingertips and a "beautyblender" worked best.
The impressive part is how well this foundation hides imperfections—and then keeps them hidden! You won't be able to fool anyone into thinking you're not wearing any makeup, but it camouflages flaws to a truly remarkable degree.
As far as the long wear, there are some exceptions. While this foundation holds back oily shine better than most, it can still end up breaking down (separating) in ultra-oily areas. It can also look crackly in laugh lines or other crevices after a couple hours into wear (though smoothing the foundation out with your fingertip is usually enough to remedy this).
As for the waterproof claim—we found that a generous sprinkling of water droplets caused unevenness with this foundation, so don't count on that.
Nonetheless, overall, we'd say this fragrance-free foundation is worth a try for those with oily skin, and those with normal to combination skin may also find it suitable. All Nighter has its limitations, but you may find the coverage worth it.
