    Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray:

    I have extremely oil skin and this setting spray helps but by no means it does not get rid of the oil resurfacing. I still use blotting papper. But I will continue using this setting spray as it helps to control the oil through out the day.

      Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray:

      My facial skin is fair, VERY oily, has large pores, adult acne (I am 25 as of 2014), and I live in both southeast Georgia and north Georgia, so I am battling humidity too (my face sweats really easily). In addition to my skin problems, I take a medication or two that can cause acne, as a side effect. My recent skin regimen that appears to prevent the oil slick: Dermalogica's clearing skin wash then apply Dermalogica's clearing mattifier and oil control lotion along with clindamycin (from the dermatologist). I then use Hourglass Veil primer, then Dr Brandt BB shine control, and then Tarte Smooth Operator powder. I wait 5-10 minutes between applying the Dermalogica and clindamycin (I use the clindamycin before applying the Dermalogica mattifier and oil control). Then apply the primer and wait 5-10 minutes before applying the Dr Brandt BB shine control cream. I've had success with both types of Tarte concealer, which I apply after the BB cream. Then, after applying Tarte blush and Tarte matte bronzer along with Urban Decay eye makeup and Smashbox eye primer (I feel Smashbox eye primer doesn't try my eyes out like Urban Decays but both will hold eyeshadow) and Smashbox brow tech (which is incredible and waterproof). I finish my makeup routine with Urban Decay's De Slick setting spray. I've also had success with Benefit's porefessional primer. This is my first bottle of Hourglass Veil, but according to the label, it has more beneficial ingredients for your skin than the porefessional. I used to use Murad anti-aging products and acne products especially the oil control lotion, but it was doing good to hold the oil back for 8 hours. However, I was using Tarte BB primer cream instead of the Dr Brandt. I haven't used Tarte BB with the Dermalogica or Murad with the Dr Brandt BB. After the success I've had with the Dermalogica and Dr Brandt duo, I'm hesitant to retry the Tarte BB and Murad. Note, I use Tretinoin gel at night and take oral doxycycline hyclate both from my dermatologist.

        Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray:

        Excellent setting spray! I have EXTREMELY OILY Skin and this definitely helps. My make up last longer throughout the day and my skin has more of a matte feel rather than the oily slick feeling after only a couple of hours after applying make up. Not a miracle product that magically prevents any signs of oil on the skin, but definitely makes a HUGE difference throughout the day on my Super Oily skin. I only use once after applying makeup in the morning. My makeup and skin would probably be even better if I would take the time to re-apply mid day.

              Comments about Urban Decay Cosmetics De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray:

              I have used several "dupes" such as Nyx and ELF and was very unimpressed with both. I tried this in the trial size at first because I was skeptical after the other two disappointments. It really does work, though! I am naturally rather oily and this does wonders to not only make my makeup last literally all day, but also lessen my oil. I still use blotting papers once or twice, but before I was blotting every few hours AND touching my makeup a couple of times a day. I am a believer now and will ALWAYS keep this on hand.

                This product is a necessity if you have oily skin. No product is a miracle worker when it comes to oilyness, but this stuff helps keep makeup on my face, and it helps control oil. It is especially useful since I live in the desert and it's hot 75% of the time. I spray my face with it first thing, before I apply any makeup. I apply my makeup after it dries, and then I spray my face again. I have not dealt with the "oil slick" since I started using this spray. I absolutely must use it every time I wear makeup or my makeup will slip off of my face and I will be blotting every hour. It is amazing!

                      I love this product! I have had problems with oily skin for awhile and I even my dermatologist hasn't recommended anything to me that has been extremely useful. I wear this out and even after 5 hours of dancing in a crowded club, I still come out looking flawless with this product. Even though it's expensive, I definitely recommend using this product.

                          This product actually lowers the temperature of your makeup to help it stay put and keep skin looking smooth (but never shiny). It also provides powerful all-day oil control.

                          In a 7-day clinical study:
                          • 100% of participants said De-Slick helped prevent makeup meltdown.
                          • Over 90% said their makeup looked less shiny, didn’t slide and rarely needed to be touched up.
                          • 85% said De-Slick is the longest-lasting oil-control product they've ever used.

                          You can use this product to set eye makeup, but be sure to use as directed to avoid eye irritation. Close your eyes, hold the bottle 8" - 10" away, and mist face 2-4 times, in an "X" and "T" formation.

                        I'm a busy student who doesn't have time to do much in terms of touching up my makeup throughout the day, so I am looking for a setting spray to maximize the wear of my foundation from early mornings to late evening. Some things to note: I own a variety of foundations (liquid, cream/mousse, and powder, all of which I combine with setting spray) and have sensitive, combination skin. Blemishes occur in my T-zone. The last spray I used was the one in the golden bottle by Pür Minerals (don't remember the name). Which of the three UD sprays is best?

                          It depends on what your main concern is. This spray's primary function is oil- and shine-control. Chill's primary function is cooling & hydrating the skin. All Nighter's primary function is extending makeup's wear. We'd say, based on your skin type, that De-Slick may be the best choice for you.
