Today I will be reviewing the Urban Decay De Slick Make Up Setting Spray (I paid $35.26 USD) from Beauty Bay, CLICK HERE to visit the exact page with this product.
|I got the largest size: 177 mL - trust me, I need it.|
|The actual bottle.|
|As you can see, this bottle is about the size of a full size make up brush.|
Temperature: 24-30+ Degrees Celsius. Even in the shade, it was ridiculously, unforgivably hot!
Scene: crowded music festival with 40,000 + people, an open stadium exposed to direct sunlight, hard-style/house/electro music everywhere, and - of course - crazy energetic dancing!
|Before the festival - Right after I finished my make up|
|2-3 hours post make up application - at the festival with my best friend!|
|10-11 hours post make up application - Towards the end of the festival!|
> The spray worked much better than my other make up setting spray such as my Australis one. It kept my face matte for a good few hours when my face would usually be oily after about 1 hour, it stayed matte for about 4 hours (probably would've been more if I wasn't dancing like a maniac the whole day/night).
> The spray however did not stop oil production, there was oil there - as per usual - after the first few hours (it was good while it lasted), but don't expect any miracles (especially with the Australian weather).
> Despite sweating, the make up stayed on all night! This could be as a result of good make up or the setting spray (or a combination of both) - just thought I'd mention it.
> Shoulder rides are fun as hell!
In conclusion, this spray is better than other setting sprays and certainly assists in keeping make up on. In the area of oil control, maybe my face is just cursed but it had little effect. Still, whenever I use it for less exciting events such as normal every day wear, it does keep my face matte to semi-matte for many hours (5-6 hours) which is better than nothing!
Stay Beautiful! xx
