DE-SLICK-OIL-CONTROL - URBAN DECAY SETTING SPRAY



Hey beauties, since I'm currently on my third bottle of Urban Decay Oil- Control setting spray, I have decided to share with you, my review on it. For you all that have been reading my blog since day one, you know how much I am constantly complaining about my oily face. I have mentioned in my previous posts that I used the Urban decay setting spray like my life depends on it (it does), but I realised I've actually never went into details as to why I love it so much. I have been using this setting spray for less than a year now and honestly, I don't know how I was managing before finding out about this setting spray.

If you suffer from an oily face like I do, I'm sure you know the struggles of Often to constantly run into the bathroom to fix your face so you look presentable, constantly having to ask your best friend if your face doesn't look like an egg could be fried on it. The struggle sucks! I find it to be quite annoying spending a certain amount of time doing my makeup only to go out and within 2-3 hours, it looks like a mess due to my oiliness. 

 Urban Decay also have another setting spray called All-Nighter which keeps your makeup in place for up to 16 hours! This setting spray is suitable for all skin type, so why not pick that up for when you're going clubbing. I will be looking to try this setting spray as soon as my Oil-Control spray finishes.


Product Description:

Oily skin has met its match! Mist on this weightless spray to control oil, deflect surface shine and help makeup stay put. Meet your most powerful oil-control ally. De-Slick mists on weightlessly to control oil, deflect surface shine and keep skin looking beautifully matte. High-tech ingredients help keep foundation, shadow and blush from smudging, sliding or fading – so you hardly ever need to touch up. 


I discovered what Urban Decay setting spray was while watching a YouTube tutorial a long time ago. The minute I finished watching the tutorial, I went onto Google and started looking up so many reviews. At that time, I wasn't aware that Urban Decay had setting sprays! I honestly thought they only did eye shadow (silly me)! Anyways after reading multiple reviews, I knew nothing was going to change my mind, I was going to try it out myself.

I originally planned on purchasing the All- Nighter setting spray but after speaking to one of the staffs in Urban Decay about my condition, she immediately suggested I purchase Oil-Control to help this madness. I purchase the travel size bottle for €12 for trial, it is still the one I purchase till this day. I remember the first time I tried the setting spray, I was attending a fashion show at ITB to support a friend of mine. If I am quite honest, I was pretty nervous, I obviously couldn't keep running to the bathroom to check my makeup during the fashion show.

I applied my makeup at around 3 pm and I remember not getting home till around 11 pm as the fashion show started late. To my surprise, there was barely any shine! You can probably guess how delighted I was, I didn't get up once to touch up my makeup!


I have been using the setting spray ever since! I did have a few problems though. When I purchased the second bottle I found that while I was out or in college, my face would get oily within a few hours and I would have to go to the toilet to touch up my makeup which left me a bit disappointed. This could also be due to the fact that it says at the back of the bottle to spray it on 2-4 times, but I’m pretty sure I didn’t as I am always in a rush to get to college on time.

What inspired to finally write this post was the fact that I bought a new bottle the other day as the other bottle ran out and it was like the magic came back again! I followed the instruction at the back of the bottle AGAIN! I left my house at 9 am, not once did I have to reapply my powder on my face in college. I didn't get back home till 6 pm and went to check my makeup at 6:30 pm. No oil!  I must have mixed the other bottle with the one I put water in to spray my brushes before applying foundation, silly me!

I would highly recommend this setting spray to anyone with an oily face because this bottle does wonder! Even if you still have to touch up after using the setting spray, the shine is not as awful as if you didn't use it all! I like a really MATTE face and that's the only reason I would still apply powder to my face every few hours.

I hope you've enjoyed reading this post and hopefully it's been helpful to you! If you use any of Urban Decay setting sprays, do let me know your thoughts on them!
Until next time,
Lola.

BOOTS SKIN CARE WISHLIST


Hey beauties, I recently wrote up a post on my Makeup wishlist so I decided to write a follow-up of that for you. If you haven’t already click here to find out what’s on my Makeup wishlist. I did originally plan on doing a skincare wishlist for all skincare products,not just the one you can find in Boots as I will be writing up a skincare routine the minute I settle down and get my life together.

During my study session (lasted for 5 minutes), I went onto Boots website and began to look through some of their skincare products, course I wanted to add most of the products to my basket! 

We all know the importance of taking care of our skin and with Christmas almost two months away, I have decided to share with you a wishlist of skincare products you can find in Boots. By the way I think to congratulate me for getting over the fear of starting a blog, you should totally get me one of these products.
If you want to have a look at these products online, you can easily click the title of the products to find it on Boots website! 


I discovered what a cleansing brush was about a few months ago while watching one of my favourite Youtuber MSRoshPosh, I am sure a lot of you know of her, I mean how could you not? I don’t know how I actually ended up watching her skincare routine as I was looking for a makeup tutorial for a night out, but I am glad I did. Might I just say this girl is still a beaut without makeup! When I watched her using her cleansing brush, I just knew I wanted one badly! It looked like it does more job than me using my hands.

A cleansing brush exfoliates and cleanses the skin, Removes dirt, oil and make-up. It looked so easy and quick to use in the video that I know I just have to own one.

If I do remember well, the one Rosh was using was a bit too expensive for my budget, I went and did my own little research and found one in Boots for €33.00
You can order it on Boots website or pick it up in any of their stores.

I recently ran out of the face mask I usually use once a week *weeps*, but I have been too lazy to actually pick up a new one even though I walk past Boots EVERY DAMN DAY.

I came across Elizabeth Arden face mask while looking through Boots website and it is definitely something I will be looking to add to my skincare routine in the future.  From what I have read, this mask retextures and exfoliate the skin.
