I didn’t realize that when I blogged about NYX’s Matte Finish Make-up Setting Spray, I was nearly out if it. Instead of repurchasing it, I bought Urban Decay Cosmetics’s De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray. I have been wanting to try it for a while and I do need something to blog about… Why else are you here? For more, read here!
Any who, “Urban Decay’s De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray mists on weightlessly to prevent makeup meltdown as it controls oil, deflects surface shine and keeps skin looking beautifully matte. High-tech ingredients help keep foundation, shadow and blush from smudging, sliding or fading – so you hardly ever need to touch up. Your makeup will look just-applied for hours (even if it’s not).” Source: Ulta
So…not only is Urban Decay one of the most successful makeup brands but it’s def a favorite of mine. However, I can’t say that I like the spray. Actually when I sprayed, I almost blasted my makeup off. But then there is this thing called “directions” that I really didn’t follow (as usual). Per the directions “Shake well. Apply just before foundation to control oil and again after makeup to deflect surface shine and lock makeup in place. Hold the bottle 8″ – 10” away and mist face 2-4 times, in an “X” and “T” formation.”
I think it’s worth mentioning that I bought a sample (14 bucks) and if I like it (after following directions) I still won’t pay the full price. I can’t imagine spending 30 bucks for setting spray; especially, because I already use a matting spray and primer *shoulder shrug*
