Urban Decay One and Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector Review


Hi Divas

The year of 2018 has really been all about expanding my complexion products. I have bought and tried so many new foundations both high and low end. As I have been getting older I have been focusing on having clear, smooth and flawless skin. This of cause starts with eating right and changing up my skin care routine. When you have healthy and radiant skin it definitely affects the way your makeup looks too. When I stumbled on the One and Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector at Sephora, I truly wanted to give it a try. It was much cheaper than most of the products in the foundation category at the store. This product is described as an all you need one step base combining skin care and makeup. What intrigued me the most were the words ''complexion perfector''. Who doesn't want to have a perfect flawless face? I have seen many Youtubers rave about this product and I was eager to find out what the hype was all about.


Urban Decay describes One and Done as having the best of both worlds in your hands. It has the benefits of skin care as well as foundation coverage all in one. It promises to blur imperfections, even out your skin tone and diminish the look of pores. It contains peptides, vitamins and SPF20 to help treat skin and prevent sun damage. The light diffusing spheres bring radiance and helps remove visible flaws from the naked eye. Finding a base product that has the coverage of a foundation and the benefits of skin care all in one sounds like a dream come true to me. The packaging of One and Done is quite pretty. It comes in a squeeze tube with a metallic ombre effect. There is 40ml of product which makes it 10ml more than a standard foundation. You are truly getting your money's worth. As I mentioned above it is cheaper than most high end foundations at Sephora. The product does come with a pump which is excellent as most squeeze tubes do not. The tube is designed as an air tight product; therefore, you have to squeeze the tube just before pumping it. This will allow a full pump of product to be dispersed out. The packaging is light, mess free and very travel friendly. I totally give it a big thumb up.


There are six shades ranging from light to deep. Each shade is a blanket cover for your skin tone, as the product adjusts and adapts to your actual complexion. Whether you are in the light, medium or deep spectrum, you will find a shade that works for you as the product transforms to your skin colour. I chose the shade medium light as it has a very visible yellow undertone whereas the shade medium has a peachier undertone to it. On first application medium light is slightly lighter than my actual skin tone but it does adjust and settle into my skin throughout the day. The foundation has a very creamy texture. It actually feels like a moisturiser when you apply it. It reminds me a lot of a BB cream. I therefore prefer to use my hands to blend One and Done rather than a brush or sponge. When applying it with a brush or sponge you would have to use twice as much product than if you were to blend it directly with your hands. The consistency is very light and the coverage is sheer. One thing that is very noticeable about the product is that it is very hydrating and feels so comfortable on the skin. You honestly don't feel like you applied makeup at all.


As mentioned above this is sheer coverage like a tinted moisturiser. It will not cover any blemishes, scars or dark marks. You would have to use a concealer and a colour corrector if you want to see any visible coverage in that aspect. What you do see when wearing One and Done is a visible blurring filter on your face. It is weird to describe but there is no coverage yet the face seems blurred and smoothed out. It is quite magical to look at. This product gives you a natural your skin but 10 times better look. When applied with concealer and powder, your skin looks naturally flawless. It looks like you are not wearing makeup at all but you look radiant, smooth and gorgeous. It's crazy but true. This is perfect for women who don't like to wear makeup but want to look flawless. If you are someone who wants light coverage on lazy days then this is excellent too. As you can see in the photo above, my face seems smooth and radiant yet my moles and freckles are still visible. You can also see the sheer coverage around my mouth area. Not every woman desires a full face of makeup every day, this product is great for those moments.

*Who is it for: Women who want a my skin but better look.
*Who is it not for: Women who want full to medium coverage.
*Can I skip skin care: Absolutely not! No matter how much marketing a product gives, always apply your usual skin care before using a product as the skin care benefits are not enough for a visible difference.
*Pros: Perfect for every day flawless complexion and travel friendly. Has skin care benefits and SPF20. It lasts throughout the day and does not flake or rub off.
*Cons: Has a tendency to pull or flake when applied with a drying moisturiser. Make sure your face cream is hydrating before applying this product.


Hope you found this review helpful.

I love that this complexion perfector provides flawless coverage to give a natural look and is not "heavy" like some BB and CC creams are. Definitely checking this one out because I'm really too lazy to apply concealer and foundation. Great honest post - love it!
