 Vintage De-Slick
Vintage De-Slick
This lightweight powder blots oil and stops shine. Try it on naked skin or over makeup, and on EVERY skin tone from chocolate to vanilla.

This stuff has saved my super-oily-skin-having life. I was skeptical about it and was hesitant about shelling out quite a bit of money for something that might not work but this stuff is worth every penny and I will continue to buy it for as long as UD continues to make it.
My skin produces an insane amount of oil. I used to wash my face and apply a light moisturizer and within a half an hour my face would begin to get greasy. After several hours my skin would feel heavy and slick because it was covered in so much oil and I'd have to wash it again. There was so much oil that sheets alone couldn't absorb it all and regular powder would just make a cakey mess. Now I use a fluffy brush and dust this over my moisturizer or makeup and I'm oil-free. After 3 or 4 hours I do begin to get a bit shiny but the oilslick factor is greatly reduced and a good blotting followed by more of this powder really curbs it and it doesn't disturb my makeup. As an added bonus it also helps absorb sweat.
The only cons I can find have nothing to do with the product or it's effectiveness but the packaging. Don't get me wrong--I love the compact. It's larger than I thought, has a great large mirror and a deep well that holds a ton of product, and is made of thick sturdy plastic that holds up to all the beatings it takes tumbling around in my bag. But applying this with the little puff over my Naked Skin makeup has made it quite dirty and I wish UD would sell replacement puffs separately. Or better yet, include a small fluffy brush in the compact, as the puff can apply the powder a little too heavily.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Pros: These are creamy, soft and easy to apply. They smudge well and once set don't melt or transfer. You get a nice variety and a good amount of product for the price plus the fantastic Grindhouse sharpener. They're double ended and easy to throw in a makeup bag. Empire is a really great shade--I like it even more than Rockstar, UD's other purple liner.
Cons: Pigmentation isn't great. It's better than a lot of drugstore liners but hardly the best out there. Zero is not a very dark black and the glitter in Uzi and Corrupt means they take several passes to be opaque. And the glitter sticks to your lashes, irritates the eyes and migrates all over your face. Because they are so soft it's difficult to get a thin or precise line and you need to sharpen after every use so you go through them rather fast.
As much as I like Empire I'm not too impressed with these overall. After using their shadows for years I expected better from UD. These have quite a cult following amongst makeup junkies but for the money they're just not for me.
Pros Good Value, Blendable, Great Colors, Long Lasting
Cons messy glitter, poor pigmentation
No, I do not recommend this product.

Look, you're blushing! Sheer, buildable cheek tints feel weightless and glide effortlessly over foundation or bare skin. Build your tint to suit your desired blush factor.
 

Are these safe to use on lips?
