Questions & Answers for Urban Decay De-Slick In A Tube Mattifying Gel

Question
De-Slick vs. Smashbox Primer Photo Light
I've been using Smashbox Primer Photo Light for my oily skin and it's been treating me very well. However, when I went to the Urban Decay counter, the lady offered me the De-Slick. She said that the De-Slick was also more of a treatment for the face compared to Smasbox, not just makeup you put on to cover imperfections.

I went in the afternoon and my face was a little shiny, so when she put the De-Slick on me it looked well. But that could be because it was later in the day and I just needed retouching, or that the De-Slick is really that good.

Has anyone used both products and prefer one over the other?

Or perhaps both of them work even better together?

I've tried them all. De Slick does exactly what the tube says it does. For years I've been trying products and techniques to combat the oil that comes through my make-up and makes my face looks super shiny. I got so used to checking my face every hour and having to fix my oiliness, that I felt chained to my compact. Now I am FREE!! Good Luck!

I have used both and I like to use the products together. I see the De-Slick more as a spot treatment product for oily areas rather than a full on "primer." I like to use de-slick in addition to the primer that is already being used, like your smashbox primer. You can apply your primer first and then use De-Slick over areas of the skin you where you find you get very oily.

I have tried both. I have super oily skin, live in a very humid place, and have tried a lot of primers, including Smashbox Photo Primer Light. I barely noticed a difference in my skin when I used Smashbox. Urban Decay's De-Slick in a Tube is the best I've ever tried. I wash my face, put on a little moisturizer and let it dry, then spread a small amount of De-Slick on my face (just enough to cover my face), and apply Bare Minerals foundation. My makeup stays on, my pores are a little tighter, and my oil problem is so much better. I hope this helps. :)

I've used both the UD de-slick and the Smashbox primer light and usually use them together. I have combination skin, and I loved how the Smashbox primer made my skin smooth and temporarily matte. But in oily spots like my T-zone, my skin would still look shiny after a couple hours--very frustrating! So I'm so glad I found UD de-slick--I just smooth a tiny amount of it on my t-zone after I've used my Smashbox primer and skin not only loks smooth and matte immediately--the effects last all day! I highly recommend using these products together. Hope this helps!

Smashbox's face primer is the BEST! I totally love it. I would only use Urban Decay's De-Slick when you've got your makeup on for the day and want a quick fix for any oil that might be showing on your face. I would NOT use this as a primer... this product isn't intended to be used as a primer anyway.

The Smashbox Photo Light primer and Urban Decay De-Slick are two different types of product. The primer is meant to use under make up to help the make up stay on longer throughout the day. The Urban Decay is a mattifying gel which is formulated to help skin stop from being oily/greasy throughout the day. If you wanted to use both, I would say use this product as a first step on the t-zone, then the primer over it to help give make up that staying power.

hey good question- i actually think this is more comparable to smashbox's anti-shine. I use the primer and love to use it in the morning under my foundation, but I like to have the de-slick (which i prefer over anti-shine) in the afternoon instead of dealing with the mess of blotting papers or powder.

I have used both and prefer the de-slick. You get more for your money and it doesn't wear off for me as the photo finish will eventually. It really is amazing stuff. I put it on after I moisturize and then apply make up on top. But you can re-apply it if you need to on top of makeup. I never had to yet, but I highly recommend the de-slick. Good Luck!

I dont see why not. I use it over a serum and a moisturizer from ole hendrikson in the AM before i put my mineral foundation on. I also use it on top of my makeup later in the day, so it seems to work at any "layer" of your routine, so to speak! It works by absorbing oil so its more versatile than some of the "pore refining" shine minimizers out there.

I use mine over my primer (Make-up Forever although now I have switched to Sephora's clear primer). It feels and glides on like silk. My skin feels like silk when I am done with that primer as well. But that is not what you asked about. Sorry got distracted. I have not had any issues using it over my primer before I put my makeup on. use small amounts and dab it on with a little touch for smoothing it out.

Use extremely small amounts of the product.and dab it on with a gentle touch and the smooth over area with a light touch. If you put too much pressure on the product as you smooth it over the area, it tends to gum up and then your makeup will look "caked" in those areas.

You should apply this product after cleansing and moisturizing your face and before you apply your makeup. Then with clean fingertips, smooth a very small amount on your oily areas like your t-zone. You only need to use a little and you must blend it very thoroughly until you can't see any trace of it or it ends up drying white and chalky. I hope this helps you!

I wear this and bareminerals matte foundation everyday and I've never had any problems. You just have to make sure that you apply the de-slick properly: a little goes a long way and since it's thicker and a bit clumpy, you have to do a really good job of blending it into your skin before you apply your mineral foundation.

No, not at all. I also have very oily skin and this product does not clump at all. Just be sure to evenly spread it on your face. It can leave white patches once you start to put on your foundation.

If you use a mineral powder foundation this will still work great, but it would be best applied before foundation. If you are looking for something to touch up with during the day, you may like the original De-Slick compact better- it is a translucent powder (don't let the lavender color throw you off- it's completley sheer).

i m not sure about the acne, but this works wonders for controllng oil and goes a long way, but i am sure nothing will keep skin oil free for 12 hours, that is just not realistic! u might need less than a pea size touch up mid day. this product is truly wonderful. i love love love it!

I have pretty bad acne and very oily skin. But after using De-Slick, my face stays matte for several hours! I really recommend it.

As much as I am a fan of Tarte, I would go for this one!!! De-Slick is what I have been looking for for 5 years and is AWESOME! I only wish they made it in a super-size like the eyeshadow potion!!! Maybe they do...or will. Anyway, I am a girl who has very oily (Italian) skin and after applying this at 7 am, my face is matte until about 3-4 pm. Can't go wrong!

I have never tried the Tarte product but give this a try. You can always return it. I am acne prone too but have been religious about washing when I use it because I apply it over primer and tinted moisturizer. I am a nurse and work 12 hour nights.

I also have very oily skin and when I'm driving during the day find myself looking in the rear view mirror sometimes shocked at the grease dripping off my face, but not with this stuff...it looks great on. I use over my makeup and i stay shine free all day.

there honestly isn't a product out there that can guarantee a 12 hour matte finish!! Run for cover if they say it does! The Urban Decay gel does a fabulous job of keeping the oil down though. I apply it under my make-up and then normally only once again during filming. It's very easy just to blot on top of my make-up (light pats or you'll mess up your make-up) and I'm good to go for another 3 to 4 hours even under the super hot studio lights!!

Yes, it is oil-free. Here's what it contains...Aqua (Water), Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Propylene Glycol, Allantoin, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hexylene Glycol, Fragrance.
And it keeps your face oil-free as well.
