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.

      Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics De-Slick Complexion Primer:

      Do NOT spend your money on this. I will admit, the first time i used it, i used as a regular primer. It did not go into the skin at all. It pilled up and made little rolley balls of product all over my face. Left white streaks to. I had to wash my face again. So I used something else that day instead. I did my research on it and watched videos on application. You are supposed to pat in small areas where you need it. Tried that...left big lines and under makeup you can see where this stuff was applied. Had to wash it all off again. Dont waste your money on this AWFUL product

        Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics De-Slick Complexion Primer:

        I learned about this product at a Master Class taught by Urban Decay reps at Ulta. It was amazing and I bought it that same day! You have to blot it on (not rub it in). That's a tip we learned in class. Also, don't use it where you aren't oily. It's good to use it with the Optical Illusion primer (where you aren't oily) and works best with the UD foundation. I really like it with the All Nighter foundation.

        Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics De-Slick Complexion Primer:

        This is amazing. I have really oily skin and have been searching for something to help that. This product keeps your skin oil free ALL day. A little goes a long way, like the bottle says. You have to be careful not to use too much, or your foundation will not go over the top of it. But, with a little practice, it works. Dab it on. Don't rub it on, and your foundation will stay on all day, without being greasy. My new favorite product!

            Such an amazing product! I would definitely recommend it. My skin gets really oily during the day and I just apply this product and it leaves my skin oil free. I also just put some on before I put my foundation and I don't have to worry about my face being shiny or oily.

              This product is a GOD SEND! Seriously! I have Lupus, so my skin goes through changes constantly. I have dry skin, oily skin, flakey skin, acne, perfect skin.. literally it does NOT matter what kind of "skin day" I'm having.. this product is the most amazing thing I've ever used. It will FOREVER be an everyday use. It's SO SMOOTH! My makeup seriously lasts until I take it off.. which in my daily life could be a few hours or it could hang on with me for 24 hours- with sweat, tears, rain.. you HAVE TO USE THIS STUFF!

                I work in a kitchen where I usually sweat my makeup off half way through the day but, this saves my face. 12 hrs later my foundation is still almost perfect

                  I have pretty oily skin but this product turns my face into a desert. I've found that I can use the smallest amount in my oilers areas and it does help. But if you put this anywhere near a dry spot or under eye it will look horrible. It drys white on dry patches and will create fine lines. You really have to blend this product and use the tiniest bit
