Urban Decay De-Slick Make Up Setting Spray

For all my oily skin types out there… I present De-Slick, a make-up setting spray with oil control. I have oily skin and come summer time I’m always looking for mattifying products. I prefer a matte look to a dewy one – but that’s just my opinion. I wandered in to Urban Decay’s store on Covent Garden with my friend Louise. We didn’t have purchases on our mind but I had wanted to try De-Slick for a while. I bought the travel size version for several reasons: 1) Make-Up & Beauty mini’s are fucking cute, 2) I have 0 money for make up 3) I wanted to trail it before I invested ยฃ21 4) my dresser has no space for more beauty items. Here’s how I got on with De-Slick.

I used this setting spray on the weekend at a family BBQ and my make-up lasted really well. However, it lasted no better than when I use Fix+ so I feel like this product has been over hyped slightly. I have no plans on going clubbing lately because I’ve done so much of it already this summer but when I do go I’d love to put this to the test and see how good it is then. Considering Urban Decay’s eye primer sets shadow in stone I would expect this to too.

That isn’t to say that this is a bad product. It sets make-up and I didn’t feel myself getting oily so I didn’t feel the need to top up on mattifying powder or anything like that which is good as I hate doing that! I would recommend both this and Fix+ but I don’t have a personal preference between the two. I would say that UD packaging is prettier. Yet, MAC have brought out the different scents of Fix+ that I haven’t yet tried but could swing my opinion towards the MAC side of things.

All in all I like De-Slick. I won’t cry when I run out but I can see myself re purchasing somewhere along the line. I’m hoping to put it through its paces when I get to Mexico and go clubbing there. Although I’m not even sure if industrial strength setting spray can help anyone there!

What do you think of De-Slick? Does kit beat Fix+ or fail?

GUYS I also would LOVE to do a Q & A video if you have any questions please leave them down below! I’ll be choosing the best questions <3

  • I tried Fix+ once when I went clubbing and it didn't really work for me. My make up was fine but just as fine as it is when I don't use any spray. If you ever use it when clubbing let me know if it works! ๐Ÿ™‚ x


  • I havent tried this but I have all-nighter and it works so so well on me! I love it ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Great to hear that it works well on you! I have oiler skin so thought De-Slick would be better hopefully if my skin goes normal I can try All nighter too!

  • I love urban decay products. You should try the urban decay powder for oily skin its going to be linked in my new blog post going up in an hour or so x


  • I've never tried Urban Decay De-Slick nor have I tried the Mac Fix+. I might get the Mac Fix+ instead now, thanks! <3

  • I love this spray ๐Ÿ˜€


  • Fab post hun, I have to agree the mini of this is so cute and Iโ€™m always using this as opposed to my full sized spray. I have to agree it does last well but I have tried using this under my makeup as well and does provide a good base for makeup ๐Ÿ™‚ I may have to try the fix+ if this lasts the same – wanted to pick it up in the airport, as I want to get the rose scent. Love your new layout also ๐Ÿ™‚
