First Impressions || Urban Decay

I've been on the hunt for a new foundation to try for a while now (probably not that long, but still). I recently went into my local Debenhams to see if they had the Kat Von D collection, but after wondering around for a bit instead of just asking, I decided that they must not have it and then I stumbled across the Urban Decay stand. I had heard good things about Urban Decay so I decided to give it a go.
I was stood lost looking at their foundations, wondering what shade to go for, when the sales assistant popped up next to me and offered to match it so I could get the right foundation.

Urban Decay 'B6' Spray 30ml - £10

She took off some of my foundation and sprayed on this B6 spray before applying the foundation. This spray contains vitamins for your skin and absorbs oil, minimizes pores and reduces redness. It also prepares your skin and hydrates it ready for your makeup, or not. She recommended I try it for my blemishes and to help reduce oil. I decided to buy the travel version to give it a go first and I have to say, I'm happy with it. I spray a good amount on before putting my moisturizer on and it freshens up my skin, preparing it for my makeup and giving it that extra boost that it needs.

Urban Decay 'All Nighter Full Coverage Longwear' - £27

She then matched my skin with the shade 1.0. When I got out into the natural sun light, I noticed that the Urban Decay foundation had a slightly darker tone to it compared to my Benefit foundation. At first I wasn't too sure about it but after asking a few people whether it was noticeable, I came to the conclusion that it was just me and that it's a healthy color not an orange color. I find that this foundation stays matte throughout the day and also stays in place, which is perfect for work. It doesn't feel heavy on my skin and so far, it hasn't caused my skin to breakout. Another positive is the packaging, doesn't it look cool? I'd say it's worth it and I am happy with my purchase. 
I should also add that it is waterproof, so if you go swimming in your makeup for some reason, this is a good choice of foundation.
