Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray review

The one thing that really winds me up after spending time putting on a face of makeup is watching it all melt off. Whether it's due to oily skin or heat, it can make you feel a bit like a clown and down about your effort being wasted. Well, let's say no to any more of that.

Urban Decay's De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray is one of a few different types of makeup setting sprays by the brand, but this one is primarily targeted towards oilier skin and those who melt in the heat (but of course it can be used by any skin type).

It is oil and paraben free whilst boasting "temperature control technology". It is a lightweight mist that promises to leave the skin with a matte finish, sealing your cheek and eye makeup for hours. You'll barely need to touch up (if at all). Sounds good, no?

Now whilst this isn't a new release, this is one that I have personally wanted to try and review for a long time. There was no real reason as to why I haven't done so before now, but let's go with "better late than never"!

This spray comes in two sizes: the 30ml travel size and the 120ml full-size.

It comes packaged in a white bottle with a spray pump that is covered by a clear plastic lid, which is then covered with a dark grey plastic lid. I assume this is to prevent leaks.

I recently went to a wedding, so I figured that this would be the perfect opportunity to give this spray a whirl. Instead of picking up the normal, full-size version, I grabbed the travel size to fit in my bag (also better to try the trial version when you buy new products if they have them, just incase), so let's see how it fared!

Is this the best way to remove makeup?

We all know that removing makeup can become a chore and we are all on the hunt to find the best makeup remover. You may have seen them, but the MakeUp Eraser makeup remover cloth brings with it the promise to remove your makeup with just water. Magic! However, they come in at around £15 and one cloth isn't going to last forever, so from the money perspective, where is the benefit?

Remove makeup with just glorious, magical water!

That's where today's beauty tip comes in: micorofibre cloths.

Yep, those things that you use to clean your kitchen can also be used to remove your makeup. Obviously I'm talking about new and unused cloths, not ones that have already been used to clean surfaces (ew!), but after I found out about this tip they have become my best friend.

Jelly Pong Pong Paradise Pigment review

I love summer. Whilst we don't always get the most of the sun though over here in the UK, we know how to make the most of it when we do. When it comes to makeup, I love bringing out my bright and colourful products, which is why, on this hot and sunny day, we're going to be looking at a very vibrant pot of pigment.

Jelly Pong Pong Paradise Pigment in Cake Pop

Jelly Pong Pong's Paradise Pigment pots come in two super bright, cream shades that are designed to be used on both the lips and the cheeks to add a flush of summer. There is Cake Pop a bold pink-red coral and Fig Jam, a vivid purple-pink orchid. Whilst the name Cake Pop reminds me of Clinique's Pop range, I really love the name Fig Jam. Anyone else!? Both shades may look a little daunting in the pan, but rest assured that they don't apply that brightly on the face.

Each pot contains pumpkin seed oil and rhubarb extract for "plush, cushiony skin".

I received the shade Cake Pop in my June Birchbox, so if you'd like to subscribe to see if you receive one too, you can subscribe to Birchbox here.

They come packaged in a small, clear jar with a black screw cap lid that holds 4g of product.
