Eighth Spot: Urban Decay De-Slick Mattifying Powder

Picture and Product Description (taken from the Urban Decay website):

This lightweight pressed powder blots oil and stops shine without messing up your makeup.

Shiny can be really good (when it comes to expensive jewelry, for example) or really bad (when it comes to your T-zone). To curb shiny skin and keep the attention on you for all the RIGHT reasons, use De-Slick, our cult-favorite, shine-stopping pressed powder.

Don’t let the pale lavender color fool you; this baby goes on invisibly and works on every skin tone. Try it on naked skin (if you run into the hot guy at the gym), or over foundation (for touch-ups on the dance floor without destroying your makeup). Because the formula contains super lightweight, oil-absorbing rice powder, you won’t feel the powder but you’ll see the shine-free results. 

Because it’s made from rice powder, this lightweight, super-absorbent formula not only banishes shine, but also absorbs oil. Most pressed powders mix with the skin’s natural oils and can end up looking cakey on your complexion, but not De-Slick. And it’s infused with tea tree oil to calm and soothe sensitive skin. 

This shine-fighting formula comes in a luxe Lucite compact with a pretty-but-edgy design drenched in our signature dark purple (so you’ll look as good applying it as you will afterward).
