Makeup that lasts all day and shine control is what De-Slick is known for. With promises like that I had to try it out and see for myself if it lived up to the hype!
I tried putting this on before foundation but found that it made my skin feel too sticky. I was not impressed. Now I apply after makeup is on (blush, foundation, the works!) and De-Slick settles onto my skin and helps my makeup last all day. I only wear makeup for 7-8 hours a day so I can't speak to whether or not it will last longer than that. However I have read other good blog posts boasting about the staying power.
Other bonuses include...
- It didn't break me out! I was worried this would clog pores or irritate my skin but I had no such reaction :)
- The spritz is light and gentle. I was worried about the sensation of putting this on my face. But I hold it at a hands length and it goes on like a mist. It definitely took a couple attempts to get used to the feeling though.
- The box says that it is by a brand called Skindinavia (not actually Urban Decay) so you may be able to buy a product like this by the same company, for less money.
- The directions say for full results mist face 2-4 times. In my opinion this seems a bit excessive and a waste of the product.
