Urban Decay Naked Skin One & Done in Light: Swatches and Review

The Urban Decay Naked Skin One & Done foundation has been on my list of products to review for a while now. Sunday I spent my afternoon shooting product pictures and this lightweight formula was first in line.

Also in the photo: my beloved Rosefield watch (it’s the Tribeca in rose gold), Tom Ford’s Black Orchid perfume, Urban Decay’s Naked 3 palette and two necklaces from Femme Des Fleurs.

The swatch shows all of my initial concerns with the Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector, as Urban Decay likes to call it. The formula is quite a lot thicker than my preferred Camera Ready BB Water by Smashbox and as you can see on the right, seems to cake up and accentuate fine lines. Also can we talk about how orange this is? Light is their lightest shade and that is not light.

But, prepared to be mesmerized.

Application & Wear

How, sweet Urban Decay, did you manage to make this product go from “OH NO” to “WINNER!” in a matter of minutes? I say minutes because the thick formula takes some work. It sets very quickly so instead of dotting your entire face and then blend, I find that it works wonders to first dot your cheek and blend, dot your chin and blend, and so forth. I stuck to my trusty Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, FYI.

Once it’s set, it’s set for the day. There’s some minimal wear around the T-zone, but it’s hardly noticeable because of the light coverage. I don’t feel like I need powder when I use the One & Done foundation, but then again I do have dry to normal skin.

Urban Decay Naked Skin One & Done: Verdict

The foundation really unifies my skin tone, brightens my complexion and hides small marks and imperfections. I was honestly surprised by its claim to be a sheer foundation – it just doesn’t do the product justice. I’d say the coverage is light to buildable, and the finish is natural. The nourishing ingredients (including peptides, vitamins and moisturizers) are a nice plus, but I’d strongly advise against skipping your daily skincare routine.

And here’s the full face! I currently have plenty of other foundations to wear and test. But if I were in a pickle, I’d repurchase this in a heartbeat.

Peace out chicas!

  1. Leuk dat je weer blog 😀 Ik had geen hoge verwachtingen van dit product maar het staat je gorgeous! Ik vrees alleen dat de kleur voor mij te donker zal zijn #palegirlproblems

    1. Hij is zo sheer dat je ‘m prima zou kunnen proberen volgens mij! Op de foto heb ik mijn Corfu-tan nog, maar ik gebruik ‘m nu in putteke winter nog steeds.

Look, I get it. No one really reads beauty blogs anymore. But just like Gretchen just won't stop trying to make fetch happen, I won't ever give up on the written medium. Because there is just so much more to good makeup, skincare and fragrance than how they look as a prop in a photograph.

At Pretty Sharp you'll find honest beauty reviews, news bits along with occasional fashion/style/personal related articles. No clickbait. No bullshit
