De-Slick Complexion Primer

Item #: 2502531 Size: 0.95

Banish oil and make your makeup stay put with De-Slick Complexion Primer. Urban Decay designed this lightweight, oil-absorbing primer to not only control shine, but also help 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. The 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 UD's discontinued cult-favorite De-Slick in a Tube, this shine-fighting primer really gets the job done. And a little goes a long way! Press (don't rub) a small amount onto skin before foundation or powder, focusing on oily areas. For midday touchups, simply dab a little De-Slick on oily areas for that just-applied look; the lightweight formula never disturbs foundation or powder.

An oil-fighting formula this amazing deserves a luxurious component to match. UD created a clear bottle with a metallized gunmetal cap and base, and even equipped it with an airless pump - so it's easy to get out every last bit of product.
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 UD¿s De-Slick Mattifying Powder and set with De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray.

      I've only used this product for 3 days, but I think I like it. It's easy to apply and gives foundation a matte finish which is what I was after for my oily skin.

      Worst primer ever.

      By Rebecca

      from Bellis Fair Mall Bellingham

      Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics De-Slick Complexion Primer:

      Definitely the worst primer I've ever tried. My skin looked drier than the Sahara Desert. Nothing would blend over it, my color correcting spots; had me looking like Shego from Kim Possible because I'm so broken out and my color corrector wouldn't blend. Sucked all the moisture out of my foundation too. Worst part is its not even the primer I was going to get, an associate talked me into this foolishness.

                    Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics De-Slick Complexion Primer:

                    I have extremely oily skin, so when I saw this, I jumped for joy. My joy was short-lived. While it was simple enough to apply, it became SO DRY before putting my CC cream on, that there were dry patches all over my face and you could see a white crust under my eye where I stopped putting it on. I tried it again the next day, and it had already started to dry out in the bottle. It came out with a little chunk (like lotion does if it sits for a few days) and the contents inside were cracking. Major disappointment​ from a brand I love.
