This spring, flawless skin is in! Urban Decay sent over some of their #PrepPrimeSet Collection for Spring 2017 & I’m going to give you the basics today! Obviously there hasn’t been time for a full review yet- but trust me when I say I’m loving what I’ve tried so far! Keep reading to see the collection & stay tuned for full reviews soon!
For this collection, Urban Decay really focused on what comes before foundation. We’ll be looking at their Complexion Prep Priming Sprays, Complexion Primers, & the oh-so-beloved Makeup Setting Sprays.
Urban Decay B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Priming Spray:
Want to give your skin a quick hit of vitamins and calm a multitude of sins? Urban Decay presents B6 VitaminInfused Complexion Prep Priming Spray, created in an exclusive partnership with Skindinavia. This soothing spray preps, primes and balances the complexion while evening out skin tone, absorbing oil and reducing shine. Our formula is so scientifically advanced, it contains the FIRST patented, stabilized form of topical vitamin B6.
Spritz B6 on any time of day to hydrate, prep and soften your skin with vitamins and antioxidants. Use it in the morning to prep and “wake up” your skin, during the day to refresh your skin (without messing up your makeup), or at night before your treatment. Versatile enough for people of all ages and skin types (men included!), this energizing formula is great for your skin AND feels amazing. There’s no such thing as too much! (And B6 Prep Priming Spray is so good for your skin that you’ll want to use it ALL day long.)
Urban Decay Quick Fix Complexion Prep Priming Spray:
Is the evidence of your late-night escapades showing all over your pretty face? First, get out of bed, take of the makeup you were too tired to remove in your post-party state, and wash your face. Then, balance and reinvigorate your skin post-cleansing with Quick Fix Hydra-Charged Complexion Prep Priming Spray from Urban Decay.
Created in an exclusive partnership with Skindinavia, this hydrating, soothing prep priming spray visibly reduces the appearance of pores, brightens and smoothes skin, and replaces lost moisture. Light enough to use throughout the day (without messing up your makeup), Quick Fix instantly hydrates and softens skin. Use this spray in the morning to prep and “wake up” your skin before you apply your makeup, at night before your treatment, or anytime you need a quick boost.

Urban Decay Optical Illusion Complexion Primer:
Ready for your most perfected-looking skin? Urban Decay presents Optical Illusion Complexion Primer. Instantly blur flaws as you smooth out your skin. Optical Illusion reduces fine lines and makes pores seem to vanish—for a gorgeous, porcelain-like texture. Makeup not only goes on better, but also lasts longer.
This velvety soft, lightweight primer has a slight pink tint to illuminate skin pre-makeup, but dries down to a translucent, matte finish. Like the name suggests, Optical Illusion creates an optical veil of scattered light, giving skin a soft-focus efect. The result? A beautiful, airbrushed finish (no Photoshop skills necessary)! Our cushy formula provides just enough glide to fill in lines for a smoothed-out complexion, and dries down to the perfect powdery finish.
Urban Decay De-Slick Complexion Primer:
Is shiny skin sabotaging your makeup? Does your foundation feel like it’s sliding of by lunchtime? Banish oil and make your makeup stay put with De-Slick Complexion Primer from Urban Decay. This lightweight, oil-absorbing primer not only controls shine, but also helps makeup go on better and last all day.
De-Slick Complexion Primer keeps oil in check even in the most extreme conditions, like when you’re under hot studio lights or in the muggy heat of a New York City summer. Mattify and smooth skin while minimizing the appearance of pores. Our sheer nude formula dries down invisibly, so it’s great for midday touchups on top of makeup too!
Urban Decay Bright & Tight Complexion Primer:
Get brighter, tighter skin that seriously glows—without spending tons of money on expensive “procedures.” Urban Decay introduces Bright & Tight Complexion Primer. Perfect for whenever you’re in need of a little lift (like after an especially late night), this skin-smoothing, moisturizing primer creates a radiant glow and leaves skin feeling firmer instantly. Just a little bit of Bright & Tight Complexion Primer makes makeup apply better and last all day.
Our lightweight formula feels cool on the skin and dries down quickly—for a beautifully hydrated complexion that’s luminous and youthful-looking. Don’t be surprised if people beg to know your secret! Illuminating pigments give this formula a pearlescent effect with a subtle opal shift, so skin looks healthy and radiant…glowing, but not shiny.
Urban Decay Self-Adjusting Complexion Primer:
Your boyfriend doesn’t always “get” you. Your parents still don’t understand why you majored in liberal arts instead of business. Why should YOU be the one who always has to adapt to please everyone else? Urban Decay introduces our Self-Adjusting Complexion Primer. This color-correcting formula features encapsulated pigments that actually adjust to your skin tone. Sure, it’s high tech, but how does it work? Micro-encapsulated beads of pigment are suspended in the formula and burst on your skin, adapting to your skin tone as you apply.
Blend your way to perfectly blurred skin! Self-Adjusting Complexion Primer creates the perfect soft-focus efect so flaws seem to disappear and makes your makeup last all day. This high-tech formula even fills in fine lines, minimizes pores and controls shine. Lightweight yet velvety, Self-Adjusting Complexion Primer dries down to a beautifully perfected matte finish. And when you see how much more smoothly your makeup goes on, you’ll be hooked!
Urban Decay Urban Defense Complexion Primer:
Using sunscreen is like practicing safe sex—there’s no way in hell you’re going unprotected, but the options leave a lot to be desired. While we can’t solve your pill vs. patch dilemma, we can put an end to your search for a sunscreen that won’t mess up your makeup. Urban Decay introduces Urban Defense Complexion Primer.
Like a force field, this crystal-clear primer feels like nothing you’ve ever tried and protects your skin from whatever the day throws at you. SPF 30 guards against the sun, and our invisible-on-the-skin formula doesn’t leave a trace. Urban Defense not only protects, but also primes and smoothes skin as it minimizes the look of pores—so makeup applies better and lasts all day.
Urban Decay introduces Makeup Setting Sprays, developed in an exclusive partnership with Skindinavia. These groundbreaking, tested sprays mist on weightlessly and make makeup last all day (or all night). While many setting sprays feel sticky or tight on the skin, these feel amazing! Choose from three high-tech, light-as-air formulas:
- All Nighter keeps makeup looking gorgeously just-applied for up to 16 hours—without melting, fading or settling into fine lines.
- De-Slick makes makeup last as it controls oil, deflects surface shine and keeps skin looking beautifully matte. High-tech ingredients help keep makeup from smudging, sliding or fading—so you hardly ever need to touch up.
- Chill features time-release technology that actually cools the surface of your makeup to help it last for up to 12 hours without smudging or settling into fine lines.
Urban Decay Makeup Setting Sprays (SRP $31) and adorable travel sizes of All Nighter and De-Slick (SRP $15), are available from Sephora, Ulta Beauty and select Macy’s stores. Or, online at sephora.com, ulta.com, macys.com and urbandecay.com.
