Carrying on with my recent Urban Decay purchase reviews, today I’m blogging about the Urban Decay Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector (£25).

Urban Decay One & Done

Urban Decay One & DoneI’m not sure how I’d describe this base product, so lets start off with the official description:

“The best of both worlds, this hybrid complexion cream combines the benefits of a sheer foundation with the coverage of a tinted moisturizer – and our high-tech, weightless formula feels amazing on your skin. One &Done provides all-day wear and covers a wide range of skin tones. But the best part is how it transforms the look of your skin! Light-diffusing spheres immediately help make flaws seem to disappear. Over time, pores appear smaller and skin appears firmer and more radiant”

So it seems to be a BB cream, light coverage, some skincare benefits and some optical blurring.

One & Done is available in six shades, and given their sheerness, these are workable for various skintones. The packaging is a plastic pump-tube that holds 40ml of product but I have to say it doesn’t seem that much when I compare it to my other foundation bottles! Time will tell when I see how long it lasts I guess!

Urban Decay One & DoneThe texture is extremely light, and as you might imagine, sheer, but thanks to whatever witchcraft Urban Decay have used when making this, the coverage on my skin is pretty great. I need concealer on any blemishes and shadows, but otherwise it’s great coverage. For most skins, you can probably skip moisturiser as this is a moisturiser in itself, however for my dry skin, I still need my moisturiser.

Urban Decay One & DoneAnother aspect of this products witchcraftery is the colour, whilst appearing a little orange hued on my arm swatch, it is nothing of the sort when on my face. The colour is perfect.

I feel like I’m always going on about my skin, but for reference and in case it helps anyone, my skin is very prone to dryness as well as acne, and in addition, I seem to get large cystic spots from lots of products, especially silicones and very rich moisturisers, but this has not caused me any blemishes, and nor does it stick in my dry patches when I apply it.

There aren’t many skin types I would imagine this isn’t suitable for, except perhaps those who require or desire a heavier coverage. If however your skin is plagued with occasional blemishes, don’t just skip this, you might be surprised at the coverage. It is perfect for anyone who wants a light coverage for summer (did I mention SPF20?) or  indeed all year round.

Just to finish up, here’s me wearing it.

A definite recommend from me. I am wearing shade Light, and I wear 3.5 in the Naked Skin foundation. If you already wear the foundation, there is a guide on the website (In the product description for One & Done) which will tell you which shade would be best for you.

I purchased mine from the Urban Decay counter at Debenhams, where it cost me £25 for 40mls.
