When Urban Decay announced they had a new shine-free gel, we were intrigued, especially since - sorry! - their matte powder wasn't as strong as we'd hoped.
But this stuff - called DeSlick In a Tube - is pretty exceptional, from its cooling feel to its witchy scent. The key is to apply it after the shower, then wait a few seconds before layering moisturizer and foundation (if you want) on your face.
It's not a solution to serious skin problems - that's a dermatologist issue - but if you're frustrated with the perfect complexions of starlets and models, you might find that a few squirts of this stuff can push you into ready-for-my-closeup mode.
