Urban Decay’s new B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Spray ($33) and Eyeshadow Primer Potion Anti-Aging ($24)
B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Spray ($33)
The first, the B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Spray, is the latest recruit on UD’s team of Setting Sprays.
Instead of applying it after you’re done doing your makeup and getting everything set in place, you’re supposed to apply it on your bare skin before you start, although you can also spray it on throughout the day to freshen up without messing up your makeup, or at night before your regular skincare routine.
UD incorporated skin-lovin’ ingredients like vitamin B6 (also known as pyridoxine) to supposedly control oil, willow bark (which is rich in salicylic acid, of acne-fighting fame) to help with cell turnover, and antioxidant vitamin E.
The spray is also supposed to reduce redness, help control blemishes, and make your pores appear smaller.
I am a huge fan of UD’s All Nighter Setting Spray, which I use daily, so I was eager to give this a try.
Though both of these products just launched yesterday to the public i have been using it for the past few weeks and (daily) spraying it on just before applying makeup, and throughout the day, and I do like it alot especially for all the benefits it provides, although I have not found it to be earth shattering as there All Nighter Spray, but everything considered? Its definitely a great product and only long time use will be what stands to prove its value.
One thing it has going for it is that the fine mist feels amazing and YES refreshing to apply. And I like that it doesn’t disturb any of the makeup I have already applied.
It also cuts down on shine, this is a result of the cornstarch, which is the third item on the ingredient list.
Eyeshadow Primer Potion Anti-Aging ($24)
Urban Decay’s new Eyeshadow Primer Potion Anti-Aging is like the brand’s original Primer Potion, but souped up to smooth out wrinkles by plumping and hydrating the skin, which is also supposed to improve skin elasticity.
As far as I can tell, it looks and mostly behaves like the original formula — same sheer nude color, same light weight feel, same ability to extend the wear time and vibrancy of powder and cream shadows worn on top.

Not bad at all. Another pretty good performer.
Both the B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Spray and Eyeshadow Primer Potion Anti-Aging are now available at Urban Decay counters and online.
