I’ve been using the Urban Decay Optical Illusion Complexion Primer for a few weeks now and it has been in my stash for months, just waiting for me to finish up some other items I had either bought or was sent. Now, it’s currently unavailable on most sites, but I did find it at at least one place. I’m not sure if it’s being discontinued or just out of stock for repacking purposes or re-formulation or what, but since I’ve been using it I thought I would share a few quick thoughts in case it comes back more widespread.
The primer is on the thicker, tackier side, but it sinks in quickly and doesn’t leave a tacky feel to your skin. My makeup goes on smoothly and doesn’t stick. I think it really has helped my makeup look fresh for longer, lasting all work day, which is fantastic since I’m at work by 7:30 every morning.
Here is the description from Urban Decay:
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 effect. 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.
If it comes back in stock at Ulta, I would definitely repurchase.
