I hope everyone has been having an awesome month. It’s crazy to think that June is already half over. Whaaaa! Time flies. I’ve been lacking a bit of inspiration lately, so what better place to look than at the CBB‘s Brand of the Month. For the month of June, the brand is Urban Decay. I love the brand and think that it produces great products. I was trying to think of an original post idea and the inspiration for Versus came about. During my Versus series, I’ll pit one product against another and see which one I like more. I’ve been thinking of doing this for dry shampoo and eye makeup remover! Hopefully in the future.
Anyways, I know when I first started to get into setting sprays, Urban Decay’s All Nighter was definitely at the top of my list. Everyone raved about it non stop so I had to pick it up. When I was first looking at the display, I really wasn’t sure about the difference between De-Slick and All Nighter. If I was wondering, maybe some of you are wondering too! So lets get down to the comparison…
As mentioned in the intro, this is the first setting spray I had tried. I didn’t really know what to expect. Here is the description of the product from the Urban Decay website:
Is makeup meltdown ruining your midnight mojo? Mist on this weightless spray to give your makeup serious staying power. All Nighter keeps your makeup looking gorgeously just-applied for up to 16 hours – without melting, cracking, fading or settling into fine lines.
Using this, it definitely had a nice and lightweight feeling. I would say that this does help my makeup last longer than if I hadn’t used it, but it’s definitely not a holy grail product. If I were to not use it one day, it wouldn’t be disastrous. I feel like I almost use this setting spray out of habit. It feels pretty nice on the skin so why not?
After trying out All Nighter for a bit, I decided to try De-Slick. I was hesitant to try this one just because I thought it might settle into fine lines, or cling to dry areas. Here is the description from the Urban Decay website:
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.
The formula is definitely different than the All Nighter. I find it a bit stickier and tackier, which doesn’t bother me at all. On the contrary, I like the feeling just because I feel like the spray is actually doing something instead of just making my face feel nice.
I would 100% choose the De-Slick over All Nighter. Keep in mind that my skin is oily-combination. I have had a terrible time trying to control oil in my t-zone and De-Slick actually showed a noticeable difference. I never touch up throughout the day and my makeup isn’t being eaten away by the oil. I definitely wouldn’t say that my skin looks matte, but I’m not super duper oily like I usually am. The De-Slick doesn’t settle into any lines and keeps my makeup looking fresh throughout the day. All Nighter feels nice on the skin, but after trying De-Slick, I won’t be going back.
Urban Decay also has another setting spray, Chill, but I’ve never tried it so I cannot offer my opinion.
Have you tried any of the Urban Decay Setting Sprays? Another other setting spray I should check out for oily skin?
Thanks for reading and I hope you have a great day!
