One of the summer collections I was most excited about when I first caught a glimpse of the products was definitely the Urban Decay Summer 2016 Collection. They just always hit the nail on the head with their limited editions, collaborations and they did such an amazing job with this collection as well. From the gorgeous summery packaging to the actual product performance – no matter what you decide to pick up from this collection it’ll be a winner. Today’s post is a review on the new Urban Decay Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector.
The Urban Decay Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector. is pretty much everything I look for in the perfect summer base and has quickly become my new favourite light foundation. I picked up the shade light medium and I think it’s the perfect match for my skin tone when I’m a bit more tanned. This is an oil free formula that provides a sheer coverage and SPF 20 protection while helping to achieve a beautiful, even complexion. Instantly blurs imperfections, evens out the skin tone and acts as a skin treatment as well. The formula contains vitamins, a range of moisturizing ingredients as well as SPF and a plant-derived ingredient that promises to improve the texture of the skin.
This photo was taken in natural day light and I applied two pumps over my entire face. The coverage works perfect for me and the application is so easy. The foundation melts right into skin with a refreshing feel that’s dewy to the touch at first but sets to a smooth, almost matte finish within a few seconds. I didn’t use a primer or powder and it was surprisingly very long-lasting and extremely comfortable to wear throughout the day. What I love about this foundation is the lovely lightweight feeling on the skin, it doesn’t feel sticky and it almost looks like I’m not wearing any foundation at all. I have quite oily skin sometimes but I didn’t experience any shine or oil from it which is just amazing!
I’m all about lightweight coverage in the warmer months so I’m really excited about this new launch. For me, this product is a win although I do wish that it had a higher SPF. It comes in 6 different shades and you get 40ml which is brilliant considering that foundations usually only have 30ml. I also really love the packaging, it comes with a really handy pump, although I found that it took a little while to get the product pumped out when you first use it, but in this sense it’s probably a good thing so you know the product is brand new.
One and done
I can 100% agree with this statement. I absolutely love the idea of a product that I can apply in under 5 minutes in the morning that provides a lovely sheer, natural looking coverage while still giving me skincare benefits. Coverage wise, this one definitely goes a step beyond your typical BB cream, I’d say you can definitely build it up to a medium coverage without ending up looking like a cake face. I think this is the perfect product to give your skin a subtle glow which is basically all I need in the summer. I’m also very impressed with how well it lasted on my skin even after a 2 hour walk in the sun it still looked perfect. Application wise, I found that it works really well with the Zoeva 104 Buffer Brush or Zoeva 102 Silk Finish Brush, but I would like to try and see how it performs with a beauty blender. Overall, I’m really happy with this product and I think it’s the perfect foundation to take with you on your next summer holiday!
