Product description

Banish oil and make your makeup stay put with De-Slick Complexion Primer. This lightweight, oil-absorbing primer not only controls shine, but also helps makeup go on better and last all day.

De-Slick Complexion Primer keeps oil in check even in the most extreme conditions, like when you’re under hot studio lights or in the muggy heat of a New York City summer. Mattify and smooth skin while minimizing the appearance of pores. Our sheer nude formula dries down invisibly, so it’s great for midday touchups on top of makeup too!

This oil-free, paraben-free formula contains a high-tech, mattifying blend of veegum (a natural clay derivative) and silica (which can absorb up to three times its weight in oil!). The result? Beautifully perfected, shine-free skin and tighter pores. De-Slick also contains conditioning ingredients like aloe vera.

In studies of De-Slick Complexion Primer, immediately after use:*

• 100% of participants had a reduction in shine.
• 100% had a reduction in pore visibility.
• 100% had smoother-looking skin.
• 100% had more even-toned skin.

*Based on clinical grading in a 30-person study.

Inspired by our discontinued cult-favorite De-Slick in a Tube, this shine-fighting primer really gets the job done. And a little goes a long way!

An oil-fighting formula this amazing deserves a luxurious component to match. So we created a clear bottle with a metallized gunmetal cap and base. We even equipped the bottle with an airless pump—so it’s easy to get out every last bit of product.

Urban Decay is 100% cruelty-free.

Fill Weight: 28 ml / 0.9 fl oz

Pro Tips

A half a pump is all you need—a little goes a long way! Press (don’t rub), onto oily areas (like the forehead, nose and chin) before foundation or powder. For midday touchups, simply dab a little De-Slick on oily areas for that just-applied look; our lightweight formula never disturbs foundation or powder. Want even more benefits? Start with B6 Complexion Prep Priming Spray to balance skin and absorb oil. Then, apply a little De-Slick where you tend to get shiny. For sun protection that doesn’t feel heavy and won’t mess up makeup, apply Urban Defense Complexion Primer all over. For added oil control, finish your look with our De-Slick Mattifying Powder and set with De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great in some spots but bad in others! I bought this because my nose and forehead get so oily and I was looking for a new primer. The first couple of times I used it, I thought it was awful...dried immediately, gave very uneven results with foundation. I next tried mixing with my moisturizer and that helped some. But still problematic with the tackiness and quick drying. But when I manage to get an even layer, my foundation looks great. What I've decided is that I will use the DeSlick on my nose and forehead only, and will try the Optical Illusion on the rest of my face. Hopefully that will solve the problem!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Couldn’t blend It dries so quick, I could barely rub it on my face. I could not blend my foundation quick enough, as this dried the foundation super quick. I was excited to try this because my skin gets really oily throughout the day. I will retry this again and see if I can figure out a better way to use it

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst. Primer. Ever. This is the most awful primer I've ever used. The only thing it does and mattify. The product does not hold foundation in place, does not blend at ALL without pilling up in a gross dry powderish mess. It dries super white on the skin in patches and it clings to any dry spot on your face that you have. I wouldn't recommend this primer to my worst enemy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst primer ever This is by far the worst one I’ve ever used. I have the oiliest skin on the planet so I thought it would be great but it dries white and does not move. I’m talking Casper the friendly ghost white primer that sticks to certain spots and doesn’t blend or rub in at all. It leaves white streaks all over your face that make it difficult to blend foundation over top. You’ll have to go back and forth trying to get rid of the white dry patches everywhere. It ruined my makeup. Will be throwing it in the garbage now.
