Urban Decay

De-Slick Oil-Control Makeup Setting Spray


Kristen A.'s Review Image
A must-have for oily skin-types!

If you've heard of, or even tried, Skindinavia's "No More Shine Makeup Finish", then you get the concept of this spray. Even better, Urban Decay paired up with Skindinavia to create this product. To use De-Slick, you shake it and mist your face 2-4 times before applying your makeup and repeat the process after you've completed your makeup. For me, I need four sprays to keep my face matte all day. I recommend starting with two to see if you need more or not.

De-Slick has a scent, but it doesn't smell like anything I can pinpoint. Unfortunately, I'm absolutely horrible at describing scents (so please don't expect any fragrance reviews here, LOL). All I can tell you is it is light and it doesn't linger. The pump functions perfectly; one full pump will spritz your entire face without leaving you feeling wet. De-Slick dries almost instantly, so there's no need to wait around to complete your makeup.

Most days, I can go the entire day without needing to blot. There are occasional days where my face just wants to annoy me and have a shiny spot here or there. De-Slick doesn't create a strange finish to your face or wear strangely throughout the day. Your face looks as it would if you didn't use the product, but without the shine you'd normally experience!

There really isn't much else to say about Urban Decay's De-Slick Oil Control Makeup Setting Spray besides "Go get some!" (if you have oily skin, that is). I absolutely swear by this stuff and I don't see myself ever not using it! This stuff really is a saving grace for me.

does nothing for me.

i actually bought this after purchasing the regular urban decay all nighter thinking this version would be a better buy due to the fact that i have oily skin, but i was wrong :( this does nothing to control the shine and oil like it says it will. if your looking to get your make up to stay i'd just recommend the regular version. will not repurchase.

Epic fail

I read tons of reviews from people with oily skin claiming that this product did wonders for them so I pretty much ran out and bought it! Luckily I only wasted fifteen bucks and not double for the regular size bottle. It did absolutely nothing for my makeup and definitely nothing for my oily skin, I guess it's not for everyone :( I'm very bummed that it didnt work for me! I'm left still hunting down a product that will tame my oily skin.

Must have!

I have super oily skin & debated about trying out this product for a while. What held me back the most was the price. I finally purchased the travel size and I am so glad I did! I forgot to put this on one day & by the early afternoon my Maybelline Super Stay 24 Hour foundation had literally disappeared!! Let's get real ppl, it's not going to keep you from sweating, we are human & it's not a MIRACLE!! It sure did increase the staying power of my make-up dramatically. I only spray it on after I'm completely done with my make-up. I will be purchasing the full size bottle soon.


So I have oily/acne prone skin. When I buy a product, I like to do a lot of research on it to make sure others have good results. I originally wanted to buy the de slick gel thing but the only way I could get a hold of it was by purchasing it online and I don't have a card. I settled for this and I loved it! It lasted me a while even when I used about 4 spritzes before my make up, and 4 more after I was done. It lasted almost all day with very minimal shine and it was perfect for prom!


AMAZING! This spray is perfect for your skin if it gets oily/greasy in humid weather. I tried using the All-Nighter spray first and it didn't keep my makeup on as it is said to. I gave up on setting sprays until I decided to give it another try, but with a different spray this time. The De Slick is a life saver! I spray it on after I do all of my face washes in the mornings (before my makeup). Then I put my primer on, the rest of my makeup and then I spray it on again. I use it every day :)

Best setting spray for oily skin!

I'm in love with this product! I have very oily skin so I have to apply this twice a day but no other product controls my oil like this setting spray does.

Works as claimed.

There's a lot of confusion about when in your make-up routine you should spray. After applying your moisturizer, foundation, concealer, & eyeshadow, shake the De-Slick and spray in an X and then a T. Fan your face for a few seconds, & give it a minute to dry. Apply your eye liner, mascara, and powder (pressed or loose), and finally, your lip product. I have an oil well for a face, & this makes my make-up last the day, through many flights of stairs and bus transfers.

You can obtain the same results by improving your make-up application. Blend ladies! And loose powder is a staple!

**This spray isn't suppose to be
an oil reducing product - it's formulated for your make-up, not your skincare routine. Its role is to set your products.

I feel the need to try other setting sprays to really see if this is worth all that I think it is. Of course it isn't a holy grail product, but I'm not quite sure what I would do without it. I think to reach its fullest potential, you have to spray multiple times at multiple steps in your routine. I spray after moisturizer, after my mouse foundation and concealer, and then again after powder, eyebrows, and eye makeup. It works; prolonging the wear of my makeup and reducing the amount of shine that I experience in a day.

Mixed Review

I don't know how I feel about this product to be honest "/ I was so excited to buy this product as my t-zone gets realy oily when I'm wearing makeup, especially my nose & I don't think this product has helped calm down the oilyness. I wear make-up to school and usualy when I come home 75% of my makeup is gone from my face -.- but when I applied this product to my face, when I came home from school, it did make my makeup last a bit longer which is a positive:) It definitely doesn't control oilyness on the face but it does make your make-up last a tad bit longer.
