As a girl with combination-oily skin, it is quite often than I’m on the hunt for products that mattify but don’t leave the skin looking dull. I love dewiness, and base products that aren’t highlighters amaze me when they leave your skin looking bright and luminous. Urban Decay recently launched a whole line of new setting sprays and primers for all different skin types. I’ve been testing out those that are mattifying from the De-Slick range, so I can add a tonne of highlight if I wish without looking oily. It’s quite hard to master with oily skin, but I think I’ve found the perfect products.
First up is the primer, as clearly, that is what I begin with. The De-Slick Shine Control Complexion Primer* is fast becoming my first ever mattifying primer that I love. Although I have oily skin I tend to go for glowy primers just to brighten my skin and give it some ‘lit from within’ radiance. This primer surprised me as it does add radiance but mattifies at the same time. The formula is oil and paraben free which results in perfectly perfected and shine-free skin. It contains aloe vera that works to calm the skin, which I find super helpful as some primers can make me go a bit red once I’ve rubbed it in. The product itself is a sheer nude shade that doesn’t translate as colour on the skin, but does blur any imperfections and means you can use it for midday isotretinoin online no prescription touch ups if you need to. It works all day long on me without having to powder my oily areas, and it’ll be great to test this one on holiday.
The De-Slick* setting spray is also brand new to the range, boasting as the most powerful oil control spray, which I quite agree with. I don’t usually use setting sprays to control my oil levels, I just love them for finishing the look and melting the products all together for a flawless finish. However, this one works wonders on the days my oil won’t stay at bay. With the primer, these make the perfect combination if you suffer with have to powder quite regularly. It mists on weightlessly to the skin and doesn’t leave any residue. The formula is built with high-tech ingredients that prevent shadow, foundation and all the rest from creasing and fading. It gives your makeup amazing staying power as well as controlling the oil levels, and I do indeed love a product that can do more than one thing. Again, this one is also oil and paraben free so you don’t need to worry about it adding to your oil levels.
If oily skin isn’t your issue, then there are so many more new products to the range for different skin types, with ranges that help with soft focus effects, pore perfecting and environmental defence.
