Ask a Question
Meet your most powerful oil-control ally. Urban Decay's De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray mists on weightlessly to prevent makeup meltdown as it controls oil, deflects surface shine and keeps skin looking beautifully matte. High-tech ingredients help keep foundation, shadow and blush from smudging, sliding or fading - so you hardly ever need to touch up. Your makeup will look just-applied for hours (even if it's not).

Developed in an exclusive partnership with SKINDINAVIA, this groundbreaking, clinically tested formula features patented Temperature Control Technology. Yep, this baby actually lowers the temperature of your makeup to help it stay put and keep skin looking smooth (but never shiny).
Shake well. Apply just before foundation to control oil and again after makeup to deflect surface shine and lock makeup in place. Hold the bottle 8" - 10" away and mist face 2-4 times, in an "X" and "T" formation.

      Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray:

      I use this product right after I am done applying my makeup. I routinely use only high-end foundation and blush on my skin, then apply the setting spray as directed. If anything, the quality of my skin has gotten worse since I began to use this product. My face is oilier than ever before, and my makeup tends to slide right off. I feel the need to remove it and wash my face after only 4-5 hours. I had high hopes for this spray, but was utterly disappointed.

      Must have for oily skin!

      By Chrissy

      from Maryland

      Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray:

      I have the oily-est skin ever. Even after my mattifying primer and liquid foundation meant for keeping oily skin at bay, I'd still start shining after an hour or two. This spray helps me keep matte for longer and even when some oil starts poking through, I don't get that oily skin kind of feeling. For me, I know it's sort of a luxury product, but I would rather not go without it! It's the best product I've found so far for my shiny skin. If you're on the fence, consider buying the smaller travel size at first. I don't think you'll be disappointed!

      Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray:

      I use this product only when I know I'm going to be wearing my makeup for an extended amount of time. My reason for not using it more often is because it irritates my skin mainly on my chest and neck area. I don't have sensitive skin but this product breaks me out unless I drape a towel around my neck before spraying it. That being said the setting spray doesn't break my face out and it keeps my makeup in place for hours. Not to mention it keeps my face from getting super oily.

      Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray:

      I do not have the best skin - the texture is not even and I need pretty heavy base coverage. The Urban Decay DeSlick product "sets" my make-up and seems to smooth out the uneven look. I am very happy to have found this product.

      Best setting spray

      By Melissa

      from Cleveland

      Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray:

      I have oily skin and I've tried so many products to combat this. This setting spray is amazing. I work long hours and when my shift is over, I usually look so oily it's disgusting. This is my holy grail. I use Mally Face Defender before I spray DeSlick and it seems to be the perfect combo. Highly recommended!

        It is strange to spray my face wet just after applying foundation, but it dries and sets my face nicely. It does seem to help with oil control but where I am most oily (chin area) I still get a good amount of oil there even after using this product.

          Can I use this as my liquid when applying eyeshadow wet? I have oily eyelids, and I use a primer, but maybe this would also help to dampen and set the shadow.

            A:

            That is not its recommended use, and we can only recommend to use as directed. When used as directed, it can still help to extend the wear of your eye makeup - just make sure that you mist it 8"-10" away from your face.

        • Q:

          Can I use this along with another primer such as bareminerals primer before putting on my foundation or should I just use the spray by itself before putting on my foundation for the best results?

            This product can replace your primer. Apply just before foundation to control oil and again after makeup to deflect surface shine and lock makeup in place.

            In a 7-day clinical study:
            • 100% of participants said De-Slick helped prevent makeup meltdown.
            • Over 90% said their makeup looked less shiny, didn't slide and rarely needed to be touched up.
            • 85% said De-Slick is the longest-lasting oil-control product they've ever used.

            A:

            We don't really recommend using multiple sprays - we suggest choosing a spray based on your primary concern. Based on your concerns, we'd recommend De-Slick for you. While Urban Decay does not claim exact wear time, in a 7-day clinical study:

            • 100% of participants said De-Slick helped prevent makeup meltdown.
            • Over 90% said their makeup looked less shiny, didn't slide and rarely needed to be touched up.

        • Q:

          Do I apply this before or after makeup is done? and also does my fair/light skin have anything to do with my purchasing of this product? Like, for example, does it affect a certain one i should get or is the spray obviously for all skin tones? I apologize if they sound like totally silly questions I just have never used products like this before and I'm very excited about the reviews I've read on this!!, I'm thrilled to be trying something that will keep my makeup on all day, & thanks for your patience and understanding!!
