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.

OIL SLICK, NO MORE!!!

By tictackitkat

Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics De-Slick Complexion Primer:

I have been on the search for an oil control primer for 6 months now. I have tried nearly every single product that ULTA offers and my wallet has been reduced to threads. This product was one of the last few I haven't tried yet and I am excited to announce that THIS IS IT!!! This is my holy grail, guys! The oil slick on my face is controlled to a slight sheen throughout the day. My skin is the type to saturate 2 full oil blotting sheets every 2-3 hours, so you can imagine how insanely shiny I become. With a thin layer of this product, I am proud to say that my skin looks naturally dewy throughout the day and stays that way!! This product would be great for oily skin types, even for the ones as extreme as mine.

      Skin stays matt but have great difficulty blending in. Leaves a white film on skin if not blended well. Will not buy again.

          Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics De-Slick Complexion Primer:

          I love UD products and I was super stoked when this came out because it was pore minimizing (or supposed to be anyway). First off it made my makeup look almost ashy. It dries all other make up out terribly. Even their own products would not stay on after applying this. I used a setting spray as well. You have to wait quite some time for the product today dry before you can attempt to apply anything else. I only used mine about three times before I fully gave up on it.

              Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics De-Slick Complexion Primer:

              When I used this primer it did mattify my skin however after applying foundation I had lots of white dry spots around my face. I tried fixing it and it got worse and going to work like that was a big No No. I tried this product a couple times and honestly I'd do better without it. I have oily skin and after a couple hours I noticed I'd be shiny.

                  I wear this every day. I have oily skin, and this is the only primer I've found that really keeps my face from becoming shiny during the day. My makeup lasts all day on top of this primer. It's not for everyone, but if you have oily skin, I highly recommend it.
