As you all know by now, I have struggled with a shiny face since moving to Dubai. I tackled my skincare routine to try and balance out my face and then went on the hunt for weather proof, long lasting makeup. With the heat and humidity as intense as Dubai, you really do need a bit of help!
I had heard about the All Nighter setting spray by Urban Decay and also the De Slick one too! I felt the De Slick would work better for me, so off to Sephora I trotted, to pick up a bottle.
Surprisingly, the lady serving me advised me to try the All Nighter. She said it was the best one and would make my makeup last the entire day and night without shining or moving at all. She told me it was the one with the best results in Dubai.
In my heart I thought De Slick would work better for my skin type, but on this occasion, I took the advise of the sales assistant.
The next day, I did my make up and sprayed my face. Off I headed to work. By the afternoon my face was still shining as normal. I persevered for 3 whole weeks and did not see any real change.
I then decided to do my foundation and then spray my face, work on my eyes whilst my face dried, then powder and blush… this worked a little better but still, nothing dramatic.
I have been continuing to use it daily and am now almost out of the bottle. I will definitely be trying De Slick next.
My conclusion on this product is that, if you live in a less intense environment and your skin is not too oily, this could well be a wonderful product for you. For me, it doesn’t tick all of the boxes I thought it would when buying it.
Bring on the De Slick — hopefully you will be the one for me !
