It DOES exist...a completely clear sunscreen that feels amazing, won't interfere with your makeup, and smoothes your complexion for better application. Urban Defense Complexion Primer by Urban Decay will put an end to your search for a sunscreen that you'll actually WANT to put on. Those with oily skin will be blown away - finally, sun protection that doesn't feel like a mask!

Tired of searching for a sunscreen that would protect her skin without leaving any stickiness or white cast, Wende decided to create her own. Like a force field, this crystal-clear primer feels like nothing you've ever tried and protects your skin from whatever the day throws at you. SPF 30 guards against the sun, and UD's invisible-on-the-skin formula doesn't leave a trace. Urban Defense not only protects, but also primes and smoothes skin as it minimizes the look of pores - so makeup applies better and lasts all day.

This hydrating gel formula contains conditioning ingredients like sesame seed extract, tomato fruit extract, squalane and bisabolol (derived from the Brazilian candeia tree).

In a clinical study of Urban Defense Complexion Primer, immediately after use:*
  • 96% of participants had a reduction in pore visibility.
  • 100% had smoother-looking skin.
  • 100% had more even-toned skin.

*Based on clinical grading in a 31-person study.

Urban Defense Complexion Primer comes in a luxurious clear bottle with a metallized gunmetal cap and base, and is even equipped with an airless pump - so it's easy to get out every last bit of product.

Urban Decay is 100% cruelty-free.

Lock in any look for up to 16 hours with Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray.
To use, apply a liberal amount all over your face before foundation or powder. Planning to be out in the sun for a long time? Because the formula is clear, you can also reapply throughout the day as needed.
Isododecane, Isohexadecane, Dimethicone/Bis-Isobutyl PPG-20 Crosspolymer, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Caprylyl Methicone, Silica Silylate, Bisabolol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Squalane, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Dimethyl Isosorbide, Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Fruit Extract, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Extract, Tocopherol.

      Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics Urban Defense Complexion Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30:

      Applies super smoothly, makeup blends over very well and I love the added benefit of SPF. Sunscreen in products is a big yes for me and as far as that goes it works super well. Definitely thicker than their previous formula(the one that came in the tube.) I'm not noticing any exceptionally long wear, it's pretty average. Great option if you fear the sun!

          Does what it says it will do. Blurs the lines before application and helps keep the make up on once you apply it

                  I have noticeable pores and does a great job covering them. It makes foundation go on so much easier.
