btw...i really love the case, though... so rocker chick..

Not a big fan really. The smell makes my tummy turn and I don't feel it's super awesome either. The sponge sucks and while I think a kabuki would apply best, I don't want to brush a kabuki over my finished makeup in the middle of the day. It does work in mattifying the oil but it does set white.

This is a good mattifying powder in pressed form.
I use it personally and will continue to use it until it is used up -- it has lasted a good while although I do vacilate between this and my blot powder.
This is much better than a rice powder although rice may be a component... I am not allergic to it and it does take the shine and leaves makeup untouched.
good.. but not great.

Expensive, but does the job if you have an oily T-Zone like I do. I'd honestly rather save my money and get a loose setting powder from Makeup Forever, but this is infinitely easier to travel with and has lasted me quite a bit, so I'll bite my tongue and continue to use it until I'm out.

This goes with me everywhere! It's my best friend around lunch time. I have a very oily t zone, and by 12-1 my t zone is super shiney! I take this out, swpie a little across my face, and I'm good the rest of the day! The packaging is very cute too! It's a tad expensive, but I've had mine over a year, and I'm not seeing any pan yet. I would tell everyone about this, and how wonderful it is. I will most def buy this again!

I agree with the general comment on the "white sheen" that the product brings. it's good at marrifying, but yea it takes life away from my face, but not too much. so I will finish it and try another brand's blotting powder.
oh and the texture is not very fine; it's kinda chunky

I really wanted to love this product, for the reason that, I thought it would control my oily skin. It didn't, it made me break out. I placed in on my t-zone n developed horrible cysts that took days to heal! I regretted buying this but couldn't return it to Sephora because I lost the receipt! =( Totally waste of money for me. And my advice would be that if your interested keep your receipt just in case you don't like it! because it's not cheap, n basically I just paid for a mirror!

This is a great powder. I have combination skin, and live in a humid climate. These two are a terrible combination and I've tried so many products that do not work. But, this UD powder WORKS! It mattifies, and it's great if applied only to the t-zone area. It does not block any other products from working like if you need highlighter or a bronzer overtop because a little bit of it goes a long way. I love this. I am very fair though, so I don't notice the fact that the powder is whitish, but using a light hand helps a lot. Great packaging, great product

I love the packaging and I do like how this immediately removes shine from my face. However even though it is advertised as a translucent powder, I still definitely get a white or ashy film on my NW35 to NC42 complexion. It's not too noticeable which is why I continue to use it but *I* can definitely see the difference. It doesn't bother me too much though because it does take away shine like I mentioned and after a quick spritz of Fix+ or Evian spray, it looks fine. It also does a good job of keeping the oil away for an additional 2-3 hours. My biggest gripe with this however is the amount of product you get for the price. For $29 you get .4 oz of De-Slick but for $21 you get .42 oz of MAC's Blot powder without the slight white cast on your face. I am a sucker for packaging and have already re-purchased this once but I don't think I'll be buying it again after my little discovery. I'll be sticking with MAC which does the same exact thing for cheaper. If you don't have access to MAC or MAC's blot powder formula doesn't work for you, then this product is a good investment.

i love this powder. i just apply it with a brush. it does look cakey at first but i fix that by blotting with a damp makeup sponge. The packaging is super cute (:

i have had this powder several months and wanted to use a bit before reviewing. at first i was a bit freaked out by this pressed powder - yes the compact is super cute (but really how important is THAT??) and the powder looks VERY WHITE in the pan. the forst few times i used it i applied too much and it was definitely noticeably white/chalky looking. it wasn't a good look.
but i wasn't ready to give up on it and kept trying - and discovered the key to this powder is to apply with a VERY light hand. i use the applicator included to swipe the powder gently once, and then BLOT it onto my t-zone. it does take a little bit for the powder to melt (can't think of a better word!) into skin - and i can go 6 hours with no shiny nose - which is a MIRACLE!!!!
so, as long as you use sparingly it does wonders. (for me anyways) i think that if you kept trying to reapply throughout the day you may end up with some cakiness though.

Have incredibly oily skin and been searching high and low for such a product. Tried it on and after a day of running around, the oilies were kept at bay; though i had it on without foundation on as well. With foundation it lasts a bit less, but its still good. Although it made my face somewhat lighter, wonderful product still and will be probably buying again unless I find something better.

I'm oily and alway searching for the best products to keep the oil at bay. I have a long work-day so its a challenge. I really love this powder. It doesn't matter how many times I re-apply it thoughout the day, it never looks cakey. I blot my face prior to application so I don't know how it would look if I didn't. I don't use the poof that came with it, but I keep it in the compact to protect it from breaking/cracking. I use Sephora's compact powder brush to apply and it works well.

This product really does help with my T-zone area as I do get very oily, especially in the summer. The only problem is that it is a white powder and I am very tan, so it makes me look ghostly for a while after applying. For that reason alone, I will not be repurchasing this.

great lightweight powder. it really helped control my oily t-zone. and it didn't make me breakout. the sponge it comes with is useless. i use a retractable kabuki with it. the compact is cute but a little clunky and heavy. i like it. my biggest complaint is a smell. it's kinda a powdery smell. like a mix between baby powder and crayons. and i think the price is high. it's about $30. i mean that's pretty average for high end brands but for the quality of the product i don't think it's worth the $30. i love Urban Decay and i think this is a good powder but this isn't my favorite. i rather stick to MAC Blot Powder. it's cheaper and doesn't have a smell.

This product is a wonder for me. My face is not an oil-slick normally, but about midday there is some shine on my T-zone, so I've been looking for a light powder to take care of that. This product is it! It feels light on my face, takes care of the shine fantastically, and it lasts for a long time. I also love the cute compact.
The only things I don't like are the thin, flimsy applicator and the horrible smell. Fortunately, I don't really notice the smell once I apply the powder though.
The compact itself is not the most sturdy. I dropped it on accident the first time I purchased it, and it opened up, causing the powder to break all over the floor. I was peeved since it was brand new and had fallen perhaps a foot, but I purchased a new one and will be more careful this time. Tuck it in a bag or make sure you have deep pockets.

first of all, i absolutely love the compact. it's gorgeous! the mirror is high quality and a good size. and while the puff seems cheap (probably because it's so thin and has a scratchy nylon backing), it's not that bad for touch ups - it has a decent, velvety texture. i usually use a powder brush to set my makeup in the morning, though.
the thing is, i don't like the powder as much and i don't think it's worth the cost. it is transparent enough but the texture can be a bit chalky. i've noticed that it seems to take the fresh look out of my underlying foundation because it makes it look a little bit cakey, no matter how light the application is. it also doesn't keep my face matte for very long - maybe an hour. for reference, my skin is combination.
overall, i just think the powder is mediocre and no better than anything you can find in a drugstore.

This is a great product for those of us who suffer from oil slicks during the day. It is a very finely milled, hard pressed white powder with a faint tea tree scent. It's an ok price, I think I paid around the £15 mark, which is reasonable for the amount of product you get and for the quality of that product, especially when its performance is compared to MAC Blot powder. I was slightly concerned by the fact that it is white, but if you are light handed this truly is translucent and does not leave a white cast. If you find you need a little more than a light blot, the whiteness does appear, but can be easily smoothed away. This feels very light on the skin, and really is a blot powder as it adds no colour and is invisible after application.
The packaging is very pretty, if a little bit on the heavy side, but that is a good thing as it means the product is well protected and can be carried around in a handbag with little fear of it cracking. The puff that comes with the product is very, very cheap looking, very thin and a little flimsy and not particularly good for applying the powder, but it does fit in the compact so can't easily be replaced. I think it would be best to get a baby kabuki to travel around with for application. One lippie off for the cheap puff, but overall I will definitely be buying again and am being converted to an Urban Decay kind of girl!

Fabtastic powder! I love how it comes in one color and it's translucent so that it works for all skin tones. There's nothing I hate more than buying a powder that doesn't work with my face. However, if I start putting too much on, then I find that I get random white patches on my face. But since that happened the first time, I've been careful to just apply lightly where needed. One pat is all you need and bam! instant matteness! The matteness has lasted me up to 6 hours so far. Also, this is by far the cutest compact I've ever seen! Only complaint is the price. It's a bit pricey for my liking but I'd definitely repurchase.

I LOVE this powder, and I have tried a LOT of powders. This really keeps my shine at bay, and definitely gives me a flawless look. I use the new UD Surreal Skin Cream to Powder foundation, and set it with this powder. I get more compliments on my skin then I've ever received! My makeup lasts ALL DAY. I cannot live without this! HOLY GRAIL!
