Urban Decay De-Slick in a Tube

RATING (out of 5 stars): 2 stars

COST: $28

THE SKINNY: Urban Decay's De-Slick in a Tube is a mattifying gel that promises to "banish greasy spots and take control of oil" all day long. I wouldn't say it lives up to the promise, but it does help some.

This is a lightweight, neutral gel that you dab onto the parts of your face that to get a little oily -- in my case, my forehead. You don't see it after you apply it, but I felt my pores tightening up as soon as I did.

It does work for a few hours, but, for me at least, not all day. You can reapply the gel as needed, even on top of your makeup. That's a plus, but not enough. I don't want to have to repeatedly touch up my makeup throughout the day.

KEEP OR TOSS: I'm keeping what I have, but I won't buy another tube.

CHECK IT OUT: Urban Decay also has a De-Slick Mattifying Powder. Check out both on its website.
