Mac’s Fix+ on steroids.
I love Urban Decay make-up setting sprays. I use them every single day: all nighter to set up my under-eye concealer and de-slick to set up my make-up. So when I heard about this new prep spray infused with vitamin B6 and antioxidants, I was very excited. It also had amazing reviews on makeupalley.com.
The spray absorbs oil, minimizes pores, and reduces redness. It hydrates and softens the skin and prepares it for make-up. As always with Urban Decay, there are no parabens, sulphates and phthalates. I have been using it as prep spay but apparently you can also use it to refresh your makeup during the day, as you would with Fix+.
Immediate results: I got it about two weeks ago and have been using it every day. So far, I’m not wowed. Personally, I don’t see the difference. It’s a nice product but it’s doesn’t give the same kind of effects as de-slick. Basically, it doesn’t make a difference to how my make-up holds throughout the day whether I use it or not. Or if it does it’s barely noticeable. It’s lightly scented, which is a bit of a change when compared with de-slick and all-nighter. It’s a nice scent and I quite like it. The packaging is lovely.
Long-term effects: it’s really hard to tell at this point. My skin has been looking quite good since I started using the product. It certainly doesn’t break me out and I think in the long-term it might make a difference.
Overall: I like this product and will definitely continue using it. It’s not a holy-grail product for me. While I don’t think I could live without de-slick, this product is just nice. It reminds me of Mac’s Fix+, just much better. I really like the idea of a prep spray and have often used de-slick underneath makeup to make it last longer. I like the fact that this spray hydrates the skin and has skin nourishing and anti-aging ingredients. Overall, it’s a good product, it’s just isn’t as amazing and groundbreaking as other Urban Decay sprays.
