REVIEW: Urban Decay De-Slick Oil-Control Makeup Setting Spray
I've tried using primer to keep the shine away, and although it helps, it isn't a miracle worker. Hence my purchase of Urban Decay's De-Slick setting spray ($35.00/118ml). I find the price to be a little off-putting- thirty five bucks for a facial spray? I decided to just buy it and try it out anyway- if I really hated it, Sephora would accept the return and let me exchange it for something else. Luckily, that won't be necessary. It was a great find!
I have never been a huge fan of Urban Decay- this is mainly because I do not like their packaging designs. If I am buying high-end products, I like the packaging to reflect that. Urban Decay packaging has always looked kind of tacky to me- this product is no exception. I find the packaging to look very cheap. However, the product WORKS! And so I will deal with the lack of packaging prettiness, I suppose.
I put this product on after I've applied my makeup. I do not wear foundation, so I don't apply it to my bare skin. However, I might play around with that and see if it works even better! I have applied my makeup in the mid-morning, and by 10pm my shine is coming through on my nose and chin area, but looking great every where else! Throughout the day, I have noticed that my face looks much less greasy, and touch ups aren't as necessary. I find this product to be effective, although it doesn't live up to the 16 hour claim. I still use primer for any eye makeup I might be wearing, but I will not use primer anywhere else on my face. The product will be a little wet on your skin when you spray it, but it absorbs and dries pretty quickly.
All-Nighter for normal skin types and Dew Me for dry skin types.
Do you have any other brands of makeup setting sprays that you enjoy? Tell me about them!
