I’ve never been bothered by the idea of setting sprays. Personally I do not suffer from over oily skin, so they just seemed like an unnecessary step in the makeup routine for me. However when I received this Urban Decay De-Slick (£9.00/30ml) In my Selfridges Summer beauty box I had to give it a go. If you’re unfamiliar with the concept of setting sprays, You simply spray the product on after you have your desired make up look and the idea is that they ‘lock’ your make up into place. I find that when using De-Slick, I normally use around two sprays to cover my entire face and it dries pretty damn quickly. I think the thing that surprised me most about this product is the way it actually enhanced the look my makeup. I found that Urban Decay’s De-Slick really helped to set my makeup into the skin and really gave that ‘airbrushed’ look. For example on days were I’ve been a little bit too generous with my powder this almost helped to mask those powdery areas and gave off a more natural look.
As for staying power this stuff is pretty damn impressive. On days were I’ve been wearing De-Slick I find that I have so much more make up to remove at the end of the day - It’s so impressive to see so much more foundation on my cotton wool!
Once an unnecessary step has really become a must for me, and I will be picking up a bigger size when mine runs out! Have you ever tried a setting spray? which would you recommend?
