GREAT Product! I got this as a sample at Sephora, and I liked it so much I went back, bought something else and got the same sample again! I like to use this when I'm going to bars/dancing, and it does the trick, especially when you're out and about and your makeup runs the risk of fading away. When I use up my samples (which I am conserving, since this is a pricey product) I will probably splurge on another tube.
This is DEFINITELY worth your Sephora "points" if it's being offered as a sample. Maybe not worth the money if you don't go out or if your makeup stays in place ordinarily.
I would also like to add that the container says you need to spray it before and after, but I have done it just after and it seemed to work just fine - maybe you don't need to use double the product for the same result.
Maybe I'm using this stuff incorrectly???? I don't know how, it's not rocket science. It did not control my oil. I'm glad I got it in a kit I would not spend the money on this. I don't know how much the normal size cost but from Urban Decay I'm sure it's pricey. I wanted to try it because it's called oil control makeup setting spray. I don't know? maybe I'll have to try it again. I just won't buy it.
I have EXTREMELY oily skin and was recommened this spray. I finally sucked it up to spend the $29.00 at Ulta. I sprayed after applying my primer and liquid foundation and then again after but before my powder. Within 3 hours my face was like an oil refinery. I just cannot win. I'm returning this to Ulta. Definitely not worth almost $30.
I honestely don't know why it took me so long to get this.
I've read a couple of positive reviews about it but there is no Urban Decay where I live, however after a very long hot day I found the XL bottle on Beauty Bay and didn't look back.
At it is worth every cent! I've tested it over and over, different days and different foundations and I don't know how but it truly works for me. I spray it after moisturizer and let it set and then again after foundation, then I use powder or whatever and that's it. First of all it does leave a sheen, just like every single setting spray will, but it seems to blend everything together and make it seem more natural. Just for that I was really happy.
However during the day no matter how hot it is, how oily I think I'll get or how sweaty... It doesn't show on my face! It just gives me so much more confidence knowing that I can walk about and my makeup will still look nice!
The only thing I really don't like the the spray thingy. I never feel if it's spraying directly on my face but I guess it's a matter of practise :s
I probably won't wear it much during winter but I doubt I'll go another summer of my life without it!
Received this as a free sample from Sephora. Wasn't sure what to expect as this is my first experience with a product like this. I was pleasantly surprised. It doesn't leave my face matte exactly, but it does do a pretty good job of controlling oil. It is on the pricey side, but if I don't find a comparable product I can't live w/o, I will most likely repurchase.
Price: 5 ($35 CAN)
Buy again: never
I bought this in the hopes of using it for my brother's upcoming wedding to prolong makeup wear. I have had this product for less than a week and already it has completely ruined my skin! I have combination to oily skin so this seemed like it would be good. I have several faults with it:
1. It claims to give a matte finish or keep skin matte.
This did the exact opposite. No matter how I applied it it just made my skin oily and gross looking. My face looked better without it.
2. Claimed to set makeup to prolong wear.
Nope. If anything it made it fade away and breakdown faster because of point 1.
3. It made my skin erupt in angry big pimples when I didn't have any previously using this product. This is a big no no for me. I haven't had skin this bad since high school.
Thank god I tested this before hand. I am returning this to sephora tomorrow and now have to deal with the aftermath of this horrible product. If you have sensitive skin, stay away from this product.
I have oily skin (but not VERY oily) so suffer from the mid-afternoon makeup land slide and shine-fest that a lot of the people reviewing this product describe. At first I wasn't blown away by this product but I realized I wasn't spraying enough on my face (holding the bottle too far away). I stood in front of the mirror and made sure I held it the right distance away that it says on the bottle and gave it 4 good sprays before my foundation (but after a primer) and then again after all my make up was on. Over 12 hours later, after a long hectic day, I am totally matte and the makeup is still looking reasonable! I am really very impressed with this product and would recommend it to anyone with oily skin.
This is an amazing setting spray. I think this is what has been keeping my make-up intact for the last few months. This same 1 bottle is still half way full and its been 3 months so yes it is worth the $30 and great for prolonged hours
I've used this for a week. Its ok. Nothing spectacular but I guess that's because I have oily skin. It worked pretty good. I havent tried it for prolonged hours though. I think it's ridiculous how its $30 for this little a$$ bottle thats considered "big" but thats how it is.
This works for me. It does delay my oil production effectively. I bought this in the 15ml travel size as i wanted to test it first , cost me $12 at Macys. full bottle is $29.
I spray this 2-3 times on my face after moisturiser and before foundation. i get very oily at 5th hour and this product helped. with its use, by 5th hour i was only just slightly dewy, not even enough to blot! this means that i can finally wear natural looking foundations (which have no oil control properties whatsoever) without being an oil slick by mid-afternoon!
De Slick spray also has more enticing ingredients than the Boots. De Slick doesnt have a strong smell and dries not too quick, not too fast on your face when you spray it. if i pat my face it dries quicker. once dried, i dont feel like ive sprayed anything extra on my face. i could wear this with moisturiser and be happy and comfortable.
the price kills me. for this reason, i have bought Boots expert Instant Matte today (comes in a 15ml bottle for $6.29 @ Target) to see if it does the same job. I will write a review on that one when i do get to use it.
I have very oily skin. I spray this on my face before applying my foundation. Then I spritz again after my makeup and then I spray Mac's fix+ after that. This really does control my oil. Doesn't completely get rid of it but it helps it enough so that I don't have to powder/blot as much as before. Def would repurchase this product.
