Urban Decay Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector in Light| Review

Hey guys! Same plate, different product ;) It's officially summertime so I thought I'd share with you my thoughts on the super lightweight and perfect for hot weather Urban Decay Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector (phew - talk about a mouthful!)




The Urban Decay Naked Skin One & Done is "an oil-free, hybrid complexion cream that instantly and completely blurs imperfections and evens out your complexion for a result that looks natural". 

They had me at "blurs imperfections". Even with that description, I couldn't tell if this was a BB cream, CC cream, tinted moisturizer. One & Done - what are you!? 

After a few uses, I categorize this baby as an oil-free tinted moisturizer/sheer foundation with SPF20 mixed in it. It has a very, very smooth consistency that goes on so nicely. I recommend applying with your hands as using a BeautyBlender would suck in all the product (learned that the hard way!). It does have sheer coverage as mentioned but I didn't mind as it seems to give a "primer-effect" in that it really does seem to blur my imperfections and even out my skintone. I'd also like to note that even though it does contain SPF, I experienced absolutely no oxidation which is a big plus!

Another big plus was that any product I put over this (bronzer, blush, etc.) was still blendable and didn't melt off throughout the day. I also noticed that my skin felt very hydrated, even after eight hours which isn't normally the case for me.


As much as I'd love to keep going on and on about how amazing it is, there is one minor con and one major con to this product, unfortunately. The minor one being that the pump is a little funky. I had to flip my tube upside down and massage the product down for it to work which got a little messy. That should've been my first indicator about the "major con" with this product! The major con being that there's not as much product as lead to believe in it. As you can see from the pictures above, the tube is pretty deflated - and that's just after one use! Someone on Sephora.com described it as, "the beauty equivalent to buying a bag of potato chips only to find you bought a bag of air with some chips" and I would totally agree.

I'm torn to recommend this. I love, love, love the end result from this - hydrating, sheer but great coverage, no oxidation from the SPF - and think it's perfect for summertime but I can't honestly recommend to you guys a product that just doesn't give as much as you think you're getting - especially for $34.

What do you think?

  2. I love the potato chip analogy! HaHaHa I purchased this and loved it, but they really do need to rethink the packaging. But other than that I love it.
