Urban Decay One & Done Hybrid Complexion Perfectors (SPF 20)

In the summer I’m all about light, dewy coverage.

I know, I know, I work in an office…but when I’m not stuck sitting at my desk, and I’m out somewhere actually having fun in the sun ☀ and the warm weather, it’s nice to not feel weighed down by a heavy base product, and even though I’m a fair-skinned SPF freak, it’s always a relief knowing that my foundation, BB cream or tinted moisturizer are also there to add a little extra oomph where sun protection is concerned.

Urban Decay recently released the most beach bag-friendly base product a girl could want, an oil-free formulation with SPF20 that’s meant to even out your overall complexion and blur imperfections while keeping you looking natural and fresh, and it’s called Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector (I dare you to say that one five times fast!).

Available in 6 shades for $34 each, it’s ideal for speedy makeup application or touch-ups on the go after a day at the beach or an afternoon by the pool.

UD’s official description says it all…

“We’re not exactly what you call low-maintenance when it comes to beauty (and we’re not ashamed to admit it). But we’re more than happy to take a shortcut or two — as long as it doesn’t look like we did. THIS is one of those times. Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector combines all the benefits of skin treatment and protection with the coverage of a sheer foundation. This multitasking cream is the best of both worlds”

One & Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector is ideal for your beach bag (or summer getaway overnight tote) because it has the most perfect packaging, and it’s oh, so easy to apply.

Urban Decay went above and beyond with the foundation-style pump that dispenses the perfect amount of product, so as not to be wasteful. Two or three pumps perfectly covers my face without the mess of a traditional tube.

On top of having brilliant packaging, these apply just as well with clean fingers as they do with a brush, making them ideal for when you’re headed someplace in a hurry and looking to bring along the bare minimum number of products.

Snazzy summery packaging!

Unfortunately, tinted moisturizers and BB creams often are “one size fits all” in terms of available colors and come in just two or three shades. Well, Urban Decay’s shade selection for the One & Done Hybrid Complexion Perfectors is quite generous. Ranging from fair and cool-toned to deep, warmer shades, the six available colors cover a comfortable selection that should suit most complexions. Yaaas!

In terms of formula, the claims are true! This is among the better “perfecting” base products I’ve ever used. The emollient formula blends easily and provides ample time to apply, drying down to a demi matte finish that’s not too matte. Urban Decay’s formula contains “light diffusing spheres” (I’d like to know what these look like under a microscope), which even out and illuminate the skin. Packed with beneficial and nutrient rich ingredients, including extracts from the “wu zhu yu” plant (fancy!), it makes my skin feel better after I remove it in the evening than it did before I applied it that morning.

I’ve been favoring Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector in Light — even though it’s far from summer where I live — and I can’t believe how many compliments I’ve gotten on my skin. If I love the look and feel of a product, and I get compliments, I tend to think that my base has passed the test.

Five stars ★★★★★ for these perfectors, and for the fact that they mean I can keep making racy puns with the word “Naked” in them because of the name (I can’t resist).

Have you tried Urban Decay Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector or found another amazing summer base product this year? Do tell.

    I ordered the light one after spending a lot of time choosing between it and medium light. Now i’m wondering if it’s going to be too yellow.

    • Jessica Revitte says:

      Let me know how it works for you. I was a little nervous about the same when I swatched but I find that they blend out fairly well and I didn’t have trouble making a match to my neutral toned skin.

  2. Mel says:

    I tried the Light and it was too dark/yellow for my skin (I wear MUFE Ultra HD in R220 usually). It also made me break out, which I assume is from the sunscreen.

    It’s really a shame, because it looked great otherwise—definitely has a “perfecting” effect.

    • Jax says:

      Thanks for the heads up! I’m very slightly darker but still need something pinker rather than very yellow. I was really interested till I saw the swatches, really nothing there for us cool toned gals.
      Such a shame.

    • Jessica Revitte says:

      I’m so sorry to hear that! Sunscreens can be touchy. 🙁

  3. zVintageFashionizta says:

    Do you think this can be worn under a foundation?

    Thanks for the 411!

    • Jessica Revitte says:

      I would say yes if you like pretty substantial coverage. This feels like a BB or CC cream to me, so it stands alone just fine as well.

  4. Milena says:

    Great review! Sounds like something perfect for the summer days, definitely going to try it out.

  5. Nivedita says:

    Looks like yellow would be good because most of the complexion products are not enough yellow for my skin.

  6. WANT. Going to see if we have these here already or not.

  7. Lauren Wieland says:

    I feel like I’m the only one, but I just did not like this at all. It clung to every dry patch on my face and made my skin look dull. I’ll stick with my HG Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer.

  8. Now these look like something I would like to put to the test come summer. I am all about the light bases then as well.

    My interest has been piqued! These shades look like they’d be perfectly suited for yellow toned folks like me.

    I can say being like 3 shades lighter than you are, light would look like ochre war paint on me 🙁

    Super excited about this! I’m currently obsessed with the new-ish NARS tinted moisturizer, but I’m always looking for a new skin-like product to love. 🙂

    • Jessica Revitte says:

      These are pretty similar to the NARS tinted moisturizers (and now that you remind me of it I’m thinking I should grab a new one … I used to love those!) 🙂

  12. denise S says:

    These are getting good reviews! Glad they have a range of colors too! I don’t wear foundation however a tinted moisturizer with a spf sounds good. I’ll check out in person!

  13. Adia says:

    These look amazing and I love that they’re yellow-toned! Btw the sunglasses are super cute!

  14. Rachel R. says:

    I’ve been hearing really good stuff about this product. I hope they expand the shade range, as “light” looks AT LEAST 5 shades too dark for me, and definitely too yellow.

  15. Jen says:

    Light definitely looks too dark for me, unfortunately, and it’s got chemical sunscreen so I’d be peeling like a banana, but I’m glad it works for you! It seems like it’d be a really good product for the summer.

    • Jessica Revitte says:

      Sunscreen can be SO touchy which is such a shame. I’ve had reactions to SPF products myself so I know how it goes.

  16. Carly says:

    I’m still trying to formulate my opinion about mine. I have acne so it’s probs not the best for me, but I love the finish – it’s just that I don’t see too much improvement on my non-blemished bits o’ skin. Maybe I’m being a Negative Nancy.

    • Jessica Revitte says:

      Hey, you have a right to have high expectations! Skin is important. Given that I have eczema I totally understand the high standards.

      Jessica

  17. Diane says:

    I love the UD Naked Skin original because it is one of the very few brands that has a light enough color to match my skin. I hope that if this becomes really popular they will expand to include more colors and undertones. I’ve been so impressed with the original that I’m keeping my fingers crossed UD will do something similar with this since it has SPF, which the original does not.

    • Jessica Revitte says:

      Fingers crossed! The formula and packaging are great so if it takes off I’m sure we’ll see an expansion in the future. 🙂

      Jessica

  18. Marcella Yakalis says:

    I haven’t bought a new base product in a while but I miiiight have to get this. The thing I hate the most about wearing base products in summer is the heavy feeling.

    • Jessica Revitte says:

      This feels like a moisturizer before it sinks in. I think you’d really like it. Sephora is AWESOME about giving generous samples so you can always test it out that way first. 🙂

      Jessica

  19. Okay so I R back… I need to have this. Like, stat. The only problem is that I can only order online and therefore won’t be able to swatch the different shades… I’m hesitating between Medium Light and Medium… What do you think? Just posted a new close-up of mah mug on the blog today if you want to see my skintone… Thanks!

    Can’t wait to try this when it comes to Canada! Thanks for the great swatches of all the available shades.

  21. Fiona says:

    I have very light neutral toned skin and this product is awesome for me

  22. Louise Dahl Nielsen says:

    Which powder do you use to set it with? I can’t seem to find one that fits..
