Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid – Green

Disclosure – PR Sample. See bottom.

I don’t generally need color-correcting products, because I use foundations that give me the coverage I need to hide the redness from my rosacea and fair skin.

But as spring days get warmer and summer fast approaches, I like to lighten my face makeup, and the easiest way to do that is a lighter coverage foundation, tinted moisturizer or BB/CC cream.

For me, that’s where a green color-corrector becomes a must-have.

Given the opportunity to take Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid in Green for a test drive, I couldn’t wait to see how it would hold up, and how it would help me mute the redness that I always have.

Green is one of five color correctors – there’s also Yellow to correct dullness, Peach to mask circles and spots, Lavender to balance sallowness and Pink to brighten dark areas. The line is infused with Vitamins C and E, and has a lightweight formula that’s designed to blur flaws and illuminate; there are subtle pearlescent pigments. The bottle reminds me of a miniature Naked Skin Foundation bottle, and it holds .21 oz of product.

Urban Decay is cruelty-free, of course, and these correctors are made without parabens, sulfates and phthalates.

I thought I’d show you in stages how this helped reduce my redness. Here’s my face before I began my makeup  routine:

Red, red red!

Here’s my face after I placed some of the Green Correcting Fluid on my red areas – really, it’s all my face so I did have to go back with a bit more:

This is richly pigmented.

Here’s my face after I blended the Fluid into my skin:

This INSTANTLY relieved my face of the redness, balancing my skin tone. I was ready for the rest of my makeup routine. Here’s my completed look:

This really helped me balance some of the redness I’d been dealing with lately that was peeking out from my foundation – some of my red bumps on my nose, for example.

Overall, I loved this, and it’s going to be a necessary part of my spring and summer beauty routine!

The Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid line retails for $28 a piece and you can find them here at Sephora.com.

Have you tried any of these correctors yet? I’d love to hear what you think of this one!

    I use this one and the peach one and have been loving them!

    That’s a pretty dramatic difference from the before and after, it seems like it really helps with the redness

    • BeautyJudy

      Thanks Mai, I was really happy with it and think it will be a great enhancement for me under lighter coverage foundations this summer!

    Wow that really works!

    • BeautyJudy

      Definitely! 🙂

    I loved the peach so much that I bought the pink one too. I think this green one works great on your redness.

    • BeautyJudy

      Oh, the pink one is the other one I want to try!

    This stuff looks great. I’ll have to pick one up and give it a whirl. Love your colourful eye look!

    • BeautyJudy

      Let me know which one you get, I am curious to see the pink one in person, it might be nice under the eyes for me!

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    Wow, what great results for hiding red! And I love your colorful eye makeup!

    • BeautyJudy

      Thanks Allison! I was very happy with the outcome of both 🙂

    I’m glad that color correcting is on-trend right now. It’s probably the most useful beauty trend lately.

    • BeautyJudy

      I’m glad to be a bit more educated on what some of the other colors do, too, as I’ve always known yellow and green but was confused about peach, for example!

    I’m always looking for a new redness corrector. I haven’t tried the new UD correctors yet but I probably should. It did a great job! I love your colorful eye look too!

    • BeautyJudy

      Thanks, Amber! I really love the pigmentation of this corrector! And of course, playing with eye shadow color 🙂

    Wow – that is really pigmented! I’ve never used color correctors before. I’m lost on this new trend. Must study.

    • BeautyJudy

      I know, I was surprised! I really am not sure I’m on board with correctors totally, I hardly use them, but really like using them under lighter coverage foundations. And even then – I don’t care if I also have dark circles or whatever – the redness is my most glaring “flaw” that I’d want to manage!
