    Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics De-Slick Mattifying Powder:

    I love the light texture of the De-Slick Powder & the sheer lavender tint of the powder is pretty on my fair skin. I use this powder to soften the look of my makeup & give it an air brushed finish. It doesn't break me out & it never looks heavy. I don't use it for all day oil control, it just doesn't do that for me. It does blot down any shine I may get. So I do love it & I have re-purchased it. Just not for oil control.

        I have used everything to attempt to control my shine. This has been my life saver. I am a African American woman and have had oily skin for all my life. This leaves a perfect matte finish and does not leave my face looking unnatural.

          Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics De-Slick Mattifying Powder:

          Shine is gone instantly after application, lasts a long while. My face can get shiny throughout the day, I've used different products, even blotting paper but nothing has been as easy to apply and efficient as this. It is the best product by far and one or two touch ups is all that is needed to be shine free all day. I no longer use powder!

            worth the price

            By Emily

            from Seattle, wa

            Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics De-Slick Mattifying Powder:

            I have super fair skin and translucent powders tend to make me look sickly. This one is beautiful. It doesn't look cakey, doesn't crust over blemishes, and doesn't make my skin dry. After wearing this powder, my pores on my nose look smaller and clearer when I take my makeup off. It's very light, so it might not do much for someone with oily skin, but it's perfect for me.

              Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics De-Slick Mattifying Powder:

              Where I live, it gets really humid. I already have oily skin...so I wanted a powder that would help the oilyness and shine control. I wear Bare Minerals bare skin, but my skin would become oily and shiny after an hour. So I researched and found this had the best reviews. I only will pay alot if I believe a product works really well. So I thought I'd take a chance. Well...this was soooo worth the price. I wore it over my foundation for over 12 hours and when I went to take my makeup off my skin was not oily or shiny! So worth the price and I have recommended it to friends.

              Best Uses

                Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics De-Slick Mattifying Powder:

                Usually I have to use loose powder because nothing else seems to work on my extra oily skin. I had high hopes for this since so many said it was great. I have light skin but still found it to be too white. It didn't de-slick anything. In fact, if I'm wearing my long-wearing makeup and try to use this to de-slick it after a few hours, it smudges my foundation in a funky, not-attractive, now-I-need-a-tissue-to-wipe-away-the-weirdness-it-created sort of way. If I only use it alone, no foundation, it's okay, but just 'okay'. Don't think the cheap, thin applicator helped the situation. I wouldn't get it again.

                • Q:

                  Does this product work for women of color? Most makeup companies leave us out of the equation. Most translucent or invisible products turn ashy or appear white on our skin. What is the characteristic of this powder? I am looking for an mattifier that complements my skin.

                    Urban Decay Cosmetics De-Slick Mattifying Powder can be used on all complexions. It features an invisible formula that curbs excess oil production and eliminates shine. Urban Decay says, "Don't let the pale lavender color fool you; this baby goes on invisibly and works on every skin tone, from dark chocolate to the palest porcelain."
