Review of Urban Decay De-Slick in a Tube Mattifying Gel by Kabuk1
This stuff amazes me. I got a sample tube for buying a UD lipgloss at ULTA & I probably would never have tried this otherwise, but I'm so glad I found it. Holy crap this stuff is neato! I've never actually used a primer before, so I wasn't quite sure what it was supposed to do, but once I put it on I saw every last trace of shine literally VANISH from my face. It made my skin look like BABY skin! You know, that matte, soft, smooth, glowy skin that babies have? Yeah. I'm blown away. My concealer went on SO WELL over this too- I didn't have to apply it 2 or 3 times like normal!
I don't have very oily skin, but I do find myself powdering a lot throughout the day because what little oil I do have does a good job breaking through my powder & I absolutely HATE it. I don't wear foundation, I just spot-conceal where necessary & use powder, but still by the end of the day I can't wait to wash my face because my powder gets all caked up & any concealed spots start looking like spots of calamine lotion. I put this on at 7 this morning, it is now almost noon, and- no caking, no clumping, no discoloration, and I am still shine-free!
Yes, it's ungodly expensive, but you don't need much. I'm really hoping it doesn't break me out or anything because I am willing to actually pay $28 for less than an ounce of this if it keeps me shine-free w/o zits. Where has this stuff been all my life?!
