Beauty Blog Review: Urban Decay's De- Slick

Hello!

Hope you are all doing well today and looking forward to the weekend! Last week I picked up this travel size of De- Slick, I had heard many positive reviews about it and was very curious about the product. For me summer time means a lot of shine; particularly in my t-zone area, I'll leave the house looking nice and the next time I check in the mirror I'm horrified! My forehead and nose tends to get shiny very fast , so I was super excited to see how this oil absorbing spray performed.
Brief Description of Product- This is a makeup setting spray made for oily skin types to soak up and absorb any surface shine. It's a light weight formula that mists on and helps your makeup last up to 16 hours. De- Slick contains a cooling agent that chills makeup and leaves it looking fresh and matte without causing unwanted breakouts. This formula is oil and Paraban free, and is effective for even the most humid and moist conditions. 

Application- Using this product couldn't be any easier, you simply hold it approximately  8-10 incles away from your face and mist. I just gage whatever is best for me, not too close yet not too far. I usually aim the fixateur at the middle of my face just in front of my nose and I find that every region of my face gets covered with just one spray. It says you can mist anywhere from 2-4 times just depending on personal preference. So far I have been misting  once when I am done moisturizing my face, and another time after my look is completed for a total of two sprays.

My thoughts-  What a great product!! It really works, I love that it does not feel heavy and greasy, you simply mist and carry on with your routine. I think it's the worst feeling going out on a scorching hot day and feeling as though your makeup is melting. That's exactly what happens to me even though I apply a translucent powder. This setting spray soaks up oils that are produced and really eliminates the shine. The mist essentially seals your makeup, and once you touch your face it's smooth as ever, no yucky residue left, and no drying time! One thing that I should note is that it may work differently for everyone, I just came home from being out and my face is a a bit dewy. It's not off putting for me because I know what my face looks like when I haven't applied a powder or such product. It's not oily by any means but there's a hint of sheen.. I am super pleased with this product, if  you have oily skin I would whole heatedly recommend this, It  has truly reduced the amount of oil my skin produces. Do give this a try if your interested, and if your not ready to whip out the money for the full- size, try the travel spray (15mL). There is plenty of product for you to see how you like it. This setting spray is also available for different skin types for those who are not particularly oily :D

Thanks for reading!

    1. I was really skeptical too! Some days I will stay matte all day but if I am out in the sun, sometimes there is a hint of sheen like I said. Overall though, it works well...if you really look at how much it does to combat you'll be impressed. I know some people would be disappointed if even a little bit of dew was present on their face but hands down it will keep your face less shiny than what your used to (without using this)
