All Nighter Waterproof Setting Powder

A setting powder that makes all of your face makeup waterproof and offers shine and oil control for a mattified complexion that lasts up to 11 hours. Translucent and light-weight, this universal setting powder blurs pores and imperfections, blocks shine without dulling natural glow, and extends the life of foundation and concealer. This pressed powder quickly transforms your everyday makeup look into flawless, waterproof makeup that lasts. Urban Decay is beauty with an edge™Urban Decay is 100% cruelty-free. Fill Weight: 7.5 g POIDS NET/NET WT. 0.26 oz


Shiny can be really good (when it comes to expensive jewelry, for example) or really bad (when it comes to your T-zone). To curb shiny skin and keep the attention on you for all the RIGHT reasons, use De-Slick, our cult-favorite, shine-stopping pressed powder.

Don’t let the pale lavender color fool you; this baby goes on invisibly and works on every skin tone. Try it on naked skin (if you run into the hot guy at the gym), or over foundation (for touch-ups on the dance floor without destroying your makeup). Because the formula contains super lightweight, oil-absorbing rice powder, you won't feel the powder but you'll see the shine-free results.

Because it’s made from rice powder, this lightweight, super-absorbent formula not only banishes shine, but also absorbs oil. Most pressed powders mix with the skin’s natural oils and can end up looking cakey on your complexion, but not De-Slick. And it’s infused with tea tree oil to calm and soothe sensitive skin.

This shine-fighting formula comes in a luxe Lucite compact with a pretty-but-edgy design drenched in our signature dark purple (so you’ll look as good applying it as you will afterward).

Urban Decay is 100% cruelty-free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No More Oily Skin! I am a loyal Urban Decay follower so when I realized my face was getting excessively oily during the summer, I went straight to their site. I wanted a translucent powder, since my skin tans and fades very easily so I thought I would try this product out. It keeps my skin oil-free, yet still looking very natural and not caked on, unlike other products that can be very heavy. I also love the portability of it, and since it has a mirror, I don't have to worry about finding one. The only minor thing is that I am not a huge fan of the applicator, but I just use a fluffy brush to apply it instead. It is overall a great product for anyone with shiny spots on their face or who needs a great setting powder to keep foundation in place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it just wish it lasted longer I definitely recommend this product, the only downside to it is, it goes fast so try not to be to heavy on the powder. I have oily skin and it works great to matte my skin so it doesn't look oily. I work in retail so I stay pretty busy and am around lots of people that see my skin. It also feels very light, like nothing is there. My skin doesn't feel dirty and it also gives a more natural look. If you want to help with oily skin or find a powder that is better for your skin, I recommend the De-Slick Powder. Great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Powder, Bad Compact This is, hands down, the best translucent powder out there! I apply this once in the morning to set my foundation and that's all I need all day. I have not needed to reapply even in the hot summer; and my skin is oily and prone to breakouts. I do use the large powder brush from Urban Decay to apply this and I love how it goes on; I don't think I'd use the puff even if it was adequate. My only complaint is the design of the compact itself. The puff is useless and my compact broke in half soon after I bought it (lid detached from bottom) and I don't use it outside of my house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing I LOVE this product! It keeps my face oil free when I use it to set my makeup. If not I can use this as a touch up and it soaks the oil right up without looking cakey. I love that it is totally translucent. It does not matter how much you try to put on it will not have a white cast. I actually like this a lot better than the De-slick setting spray.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing! This is without a doubt the best powder that I have ever used. I have been using another brands powder and it clings to everything and it's not nearly as fine as this. This powder cut the shine completely and I could not even tell I had anything on at all because there was no clinging and my face felt so so soft. I love this stuff. The price is steep and it's not a lot of product but it is amazing. It does what it is suppose to do without caking and clinging to problem areas. My new HG in powder no doubt about that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FABULOUS! Love this new item. I've looking for a translucent pressed powder to control my T-zone on the oil, I FOUND IT! This is my newest obsession and my majic powder. It works wonders and it smells good--just like peppermint. This was a great investment to my kit. I will be recommending this product to my clients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for oily skin So right to the point...... I have really oily skin to the point throughout the day I have to pat my face with a paper towel. I been using this and it definitely helped a lot! Of course my face is not oil free but it really does make a big difference. Anyone with oily skin should buy this! I will continue to buy this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome!! This powder is simply amazing! I just bought it today and normally I have an oily face after about 2 hours of having makeup on. The mattifying powder put a stop to that! I have only put this on once today and the oilyness has not returned even 9 hours later! Normally with compacts I am touching up every hour or so, so this is the best powder I have ever bought! Definitely worth every penny and I will be buying this all the time!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works. This is a great product. I haven't tried too many mattifying powders but I really like this one. I like that its translucent so it doesn't look cakey. It soaks the oil right up but, for me it doesn't last as long as I'd like. Working in a restaurant I tend to get super oily. It may last longer at other times I just haven't tried yet. Plus, the packaging is adorable!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product but Easily Breakable I love this stuff! I use it with a brush over the rest of my makeup to set it with a matte finish. My only complaint is that, like many other reviews have said, the compact itself is extremely fragile. I barely ever carried mine around and it still broke. Shortly after the clasp broke, the actual product inside began breaking and chunks fell out everywhere, it felt like a huge waste. Hopefully UD will fix this issue, but overall the product is great and does what it's supposed to!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DE-SLICK - so glad I found this! I have been carrying a pressed powder compact in my purse since I was old enough to wear makeup. I am so glad I found this awesome product. I like to blot now and then & this is a great way to do it without laying extra color on my face. It doesn't take away the makeup application that I started my day with either. I love this sturdy purple compact. I love the traditional compact design - please stick with this, Urban Decay, for pressed powder compacts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it WORKS! Love this! It definitely works and I love the design on the compact case. I personally do not like the little application pad it comes with so I use a large blush brush. My only complaint if I have to have one is that it's not as discreet to carry as oil blotting sheets. Since I use a brush to apply it I have to have a little more room when taking it places with me (I carry it in my purse for midday application if needed). But it is well worth it! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Make up savior I have a ridiculously oily t zone and this works wonders!!! It instantly removes any shiny and mattifies my makeup! I have been using this for 3 years now and have not even gone through 2 of these babies. Worth every penny! I no longer being around a powder compact. This has replaced it a while back. Trust me, this will be the only touch up makeup you need in your purse!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick Touchup I've always liked all of the Deslick products, but was reluctant to try the pressed powder since the setting spray and liquid (older product) seemed to work best. I had to switch when the last of my liquid stores were used and wished I'd done so sooner. The pressed powder replaces oil absorbing paper/tissues I used to keep around. It also mattes down oily shine while keeping my highlighter sparkling. It's also great for touchups throughout the day so I don't feel like my makeup's melting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works at first, but needs constant reapplication I bought this powder to help get rid of the slick, shiny look after a couple of hours of makeup wear. I felt like the powder was not enough and it needed constant reapplication during the day to keep the oiliness at bay. I purchased the matte setting spray and that worked much better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another yay powder, boo packaging This powder is perfect! Great for midday touchups. Doesn't look chalky, cuts midday shine so well. Love the packaging itself, glad something gets the old school purple ones BUT can you make the clasp stronger? It broke fast, so I have to tape it shut with washing tape

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Love the product hate the box this is the best powder for girls with pale skin but the packing is awful its break so easy can you please replace it with something stronger?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm so happy I discovered this! I have a problem with oily skin and living with California heat just adds to sweat and shine to my face. Having to use paper blotters was a hassle until I discovered this. This is powder is amazing! I can't believe it took me so long to give it a try. It mattifies my face so there is no more oil and shine. There are times when I have to retouch but the compact is easy to carry which isn't a problem. This product is so good my brother and best friend jumped on board the De-Slick train too

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful powder but the clasp/case breaks easily I've carried this around with me for a while because the powder is useful, although I need to reapply it every couple of hours. Unfortunately, like others have said, the case breaks very easily. My cat knocked it off the table once and the clasp broke, so now the two halves of the case are completely separated from each other. Also, now that I've almost used all the powder, the middle parts have started breaking off in pieces that fall out of the case and leave powdery marks everywhere.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nothing Else Like It! This is absolutely a must have for me! It is great to set makeup but I like it even better just worn alone. It is perfect for those who cannot ever find a light enough color to match our skin and/or for those who have the problem of colored powders oxidizing and changing- this won't do that! It looks extremely natural on, even if I build it up a bit around my nose or some other red area it will sort of sink into your skin and not look cakey. Using this makes me appear as if I have the best skin without even having to try because it reduces shine while still leaving the skin natural looking and reduces any redness or blotchiness making the complexion more even. I love to keep my skin clear and shine free by using this after using the B6 Spray. Although I like the old compact's design and size better I will never be without this so please keep making it- there is nothing like it out there!! The Tea Tree Oil is a great and gentle way to help keep skin clear and gives the powder a lovely, fresh scent plus I love the large mirror!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME! I'm a bartender; sweat happens. This powder is AH-MAZING! It leaves your skin feeling/looking velvety soft, I only touch up once in a 8 hour shift, and it stops shine in its tracks. I LOVE this product, and I ADORE the packaging! thanks Urban Decay, you guys rock!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A life saver for oily skin I have had extremely oily skin all of my life and have to use powder foundations. Before trying Deslick my skin was oily and shiny by my lunch break. Now it looks fresh well into the afternoon without me having to blot the oil from my skin. Thank you UD!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only powder that didn't leave a weird yellow cast Why would you discontinue this?? I've tried so many different pressed powders and they usually leave a weird yellow cast. This one didn't and it worked so well to set my under eyes. Please bring back a similar pressed powder without any colors added.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok This powder is great if you have oily skin, but if not, it doesn't do much. I use it to set under eye concealer / nose. powder is also very delicate and shatters super easily. I repressed it with alcohol but it hasnt been the same since. Also the little puff it comes with doesnt work well- application is better with a brush. Also kind of expensive. I got mine for half off and it was worth it, but I dont think it's worth it at full price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product! This stuff is nothing short of a miracle! I have a super oily t-zone, especially in the summertime which is most of the year here in sunny Florida. I have never found anything that actually works for me until now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you're trying to decide between De-Slick Primer or Powder, GO POWDER! I find the De-Slick Primer pills up an flakes sometimes, especially if you don't use the tiniest amount ever - I find the POWDER to be PERFECT! Both deliver a nice serious matte finish that holds up against heat and humidity as well as anything I've found or better, but the powder is so much EASIER to manage and control. It's completely translucent/clear and goes on with the provided applicator puff or with a powder brush simply.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, Needs to be packaged better. I have really oily skin so this product is perfect! Unfortunately it broke after 2 weeks. I won’t buy again until it’s package better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use this *every* day I love a matte finish - I just think it looks cleaner and more flawless. A lot of products advertised as 'mattifying' are basically... baby powder. Glorified baby powder. This one is awesome, though - I literally use it every day. I haaaave used it with the poof it comes with if I take it with me and need a touch-up, but 99% of the time when I apply it I do it with a big foofy brush. If I'm just doing a quick make-up job, I'll put this over foundation before using my UD setting spray, and it just makes everything look smoother & more polished. (I'm 34 - I have all kinds of sad little nooks and crannies foundation can get into on my face, and this helps make it look like one, smooth surface). If I'm going all out and have more time - I contour, highlight, and use this as a finishing powder over the highlight and a darker finishing powder on the contour, which makes it look super polished.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it's supposed to! I bought this to use with my NAKED SKIN foundation. The first time I used it, it was a bit oily after a few hours (but I do have oily skin, naturally). It was recommended so I bought it to test it and yep! It worked great! You can't feel the product and it's long lasting. Even if you're in a rush, you can always slip this in a bag (or keep it in one) to freshen up later.
