I have oily skin, like really oily! if I don’t use primer at the end of the day my foundation would be melting and slipping off my face. So, to prevent this from happening a primer that helps to mattify my skin is a must. I have been using the Urban Decay De-slick primer for around two months now and I have to say, I don’t know what I did without it!
The primer has a gel-like consistency that doesn’t feel thick or heavy on the skin and dries in quickly. It smooths pores and makes the skin really soft and matte, but it doesn’t feel very drying on the skin. The primer is also oil and paraben-free, which is great for problematic skin and I haven’t had a breakout while using it and also contains soothing aloe vera. I usually apply this to my T-zone and after eight hours there was only a little bit of shine with no powder applied during the day! I also like wearing this for non-makeup days as it evens out your skin tone and makes it look smooth. I can wear a dewy finish foundation when using his and not worry about getting too oily. The packaging is a clear bottle with a metallized cap and best of all an airless pump so you can get every last bit of product. This primer will last a long time as a little goes a long way. So, if you are looking for a primer that’s very mattifying but doesn’t dry out your skin, feels lightweight and smooths pores, definitely give the De-slick primer a try.
