Urban Decay Complexion Pore Perfecting Primer Review


This season Urban Decay has brought out a slew of various primers including ones for lips, eyes, and face. Recently, I reviewed the Urban Decay Complexion Brightening Primer for you. Do see that review if you have dry or combination skin minus pores as it’s more suitable than the one I’m about to tell you about.

Jump ahead to hear more about Urban Decay Complexion Pore Perfecting Primer.

I’m not the best person to review Urban Decay Complexion Pore Perfecting Primer for you as my skin is drier and I’m not prone to large pores however since I’m such a Urban Decay fan girl I thought I’d try my hand at it.


The formula of this particular primer differs considerably when compared to the brightening version as it sports a velvety smooth feel that dries down to a powdery silicon finish. This should do well at filling pores and keeping oily skin well in check. It’s ideal for oily skin but anyone who wants a smoother working canvas for makeup will also adore it.

Although I do not have larger pores or oily skin (at the moment anyway wait until we get some real heat and my face will be plenty oily) it does make my face smoother and eases the way for foundation. It works pretty great with all foundation types (believe me I’ve tried it on all formulas of foundation just for the sake of saying I did) I thought it performed best with liquid and cream as it allows these bases to blend very smoothly, evenly, and it feels as if the foundation doesn’t absorb completely into my skin but rather sits above it and on top of the primer. This is always a good thing since upon contact with my skin, within hours, my foundation tends to either turn ashy, gray, or just oxidizes.


It seems like it would ideally fill pores and smooth out skin as it sports the same feeling, formula, and texture of most popular silicon based primers but without causing that irritating itchy feeling or pilling on my skin.

I do like the brightening version better for my skin type I can’t deny that this is equally good and I’m happy to have added them both to my beauty arsenal.

Anyone try yet?

    i like this product too. Most primers are too thin, liquidy or oily. I like how thick this one was because it gave a lot of coverage in disguising any imperfections. It left my skin very silky, and matte. It may be too thick for some people but for me I love the fact that it’s so thick. It’s actually really similar to Christian Dior’s Icon Primer. Which I was in love with but they discontinued it. But this one is similar in comparison, so I am happy to have found a replacement!
