Favorite Product of the Week: De Slick Makeup Setting Spray from Urban Decay
As an Egyptian girl who has to bear with the constant Alexandrian humidity, makeup in summer can be a hectic process. Not only do I avoid wearing makeup during daytime, but I also try to keep things as minimal as possible during nights just out of my fear of sweating and smudging my look. However, as I have been flipping through numerous video tutorials, I came to discover this magic invention known as makeup setting spray.
Of course, when you walk into a makeup store in Egypt and ask about such highly advanced products, you’d be surprised that the salespeople have no clue about what you are talking about. That is why I asked a friend of mine in Dubai to get it for me. Thankfully, she got me the De Slick Makeup Setting Spray from Urban Decay.
I have used the De Slick Spray for multiple times after I applied my makeup and have been overwhelmed by its effect. It comes in a small metallic bottle with a little spray on top which you naturally use to splash a tiny amount of the product on your face after applying makeup. I was surprised to find that my makeup would stay on untarnished for at least 10 hours, even if I sweat or use a tissue to wipe off some sweat.
Just right after I put the final touches on my makeup look, I hold the De Slick spray just 5 inches away from my face and I spray twice or thrice just for full coverage. It will dry off in seconds without any shiny effect, so you don’t have to worry about your final look.
Typically, I don’t use it on a daily basis as I don’t normally wear makeup constantly, but I tend to save it for daytime errands, weddings or any other events that require full makeup and entail any risk of having a smudgy look.
You can find the De Slick Makeup Setting Spray from Urban Decay at any Urban Decay booth in any Sephora branch across the GCC. (Price: 275 LE. It may vary.)
