Urban Decay De-Slick Oil Control Makeup Setting Spray

Summer is in full swing, but the thing I dislike the most is the fact that my make-up melts off my face by 10am on most days. I’m currently on a bit of a hunt for the best oil controlling products for my skin and decided to pick up a travel size of the Urban Decay De-Slick Make-Up Setting Spray.

This make-up setting spray is aimed specifically at oily skin. The formula is oil free and paraben free. Taken from the Urban Decay website:

“Meet your most powerful oil-control ally. Urban Decay’s De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray mists on weightlessly to help prevent makeup meltdown as it controls oil, deflects surface shine and keeps skin looking beautifully matte. High-tech formula helps 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).”

To apply this product it’s recommended to put it on before and after your base (foundation). I love the application of this spray because the fine nozzle allows a fine mist and even distribution of the product. Around 2-3 pumps is all I need for my full face and the product doesn’t feel tight or occlusive on my skin. After a full days wear I can definitely see an improvement in the appearance of my make-up but mostly there is some really good oil control.

I actually used this mist when I was on holiday in Barcelona and it kept my face looking as fresh as possible. There was some dewiness around the 4 hour mark in extremely hot and humid weather but it didn’t cause any breakouts. I’ve been using it back home in London where it isn’t as hot and have been having great oil control for around 6 hours. This product is a must in my make-up arsenal and a go-to when the hot sticky weather strikes.

What are your favourite oil controlling products? Comment and let me know!

  1. I tried this ages ago and didn’t love it. But I recently tried the Avon setting spray and it was REALLY good. I was shocked.
    How was your vacation in Barcelona? 🙂

    1. Ah that’s a shame, oo I’ll have to look into the Avon setting spray too. Barcelona was amazing, it’s one of my favourite cities for short getaways, great weather, great architecture, fun attractions, it’s close to the beach, delicious food! I’d really recommend it if you haven’t already been 🙂 Jay x
