As the summer draws closer and closer and the days grow longer and warmer, many make-up lovers are hard pressed to find make-up that will last all day and not melt off or require constant corrections.
Personally, I like to know that my make-up will last me the 8-10 hours I’m usually out and about and while mineral powder will do some of the job with my foundation, my true friend in the next few months will be the Urban Decay Make-up setting spray.
This oil control spray is oil and paraben free and apparently works by controlling the temperature of your make-up. I’m not exactly sure how that works, but hey – it works for me! I find that my make-up lasts a lot longer and my face doesn’t become shiny that quickly. I use it all over my face with a couple of quick spritzes to also make sure my eye shadow remains intact. Besides summer, this spray also comes in handy for an event that lasts for hours and when applying make-up in between is impossible.
The bottle is made from this funny smooth plastic that feels velvet like (which is why it gets really dirty really fast) and the spray itself is wide enough to cover a large surface. It is protected with a small cap and the larger cap so any accidents when traveling with this spray are less likely to happen.
The spray comes in two sizes – travel size of 30ml and a full size of 118ml. The latter is a better option regarding the amount of product you are getting for your money. I buy it in the States (Sephora price is $30) or at bigger airports, but you can also order it to Slovenia from Feelunique (11,88€ for 30ml and 29,04€ for 118ml).
I would highly recommend this spray to anyone that has problems with oily skin or wants to improve the longevity of their artful makeup to last all day long.
Until next time, stay beautiful!
