De-Slick the Urban Way

If you frequently keep up with the View of Beauty Blog, you know I am on a constant quest to put an end to my overly oily skin. The moment I saw Urban Decay De-Slick Mattifying Powder come through the New You office, I claimed it immediately.

The product is a white, pressed, mattifying powder that blots oil and keeps shine at bay. It comes in an attractive iridescent purple compact with a mirror on one side and product on the other. The formula is made of lightweight rice powder designed to be used over makeup or on bare skin. Although the appearance of the powder is a harsh white, it is designed to work for all skin tones from light to dark and melt into the skin without feeling heavy.

For someone like me who struggles with oily skin throughout the day, this product is a godsend. I’ve kept Urban Decay De-Slick Mattifying Powder in my purse ever since I got my hands on it and I plan on keeping it as a staple item in my makeup arsenal for years to come.
