Rated 5 out of 5 by KatKat Perfection in a bottle!
If you're reading all the reviews trying to decide whether or not to buy this product you need to know that, yes, this stuff really is as good as nearly all the reviews say it is. I use this every morning to help set my makeup and it gives my skin the most beautiful, glowy (but not greasy!) finish. If I want to freshen up after a long day, all I do is another spritz or two of this spray and my makeup and skin look beautiful again! It seriously is worth the money but if your not sure you could always buy the travel-size--that will definitely be enough to make you fall in love!

I never felt the need to use a setting spray until last year. I was attending and outside wedding in May and it can get super humid in Kansas. I decided to try this product as a suggestion from the lady at the Ulta counter. It is definitely a life saver. Nothing more embarrassing then hugging someone and looking at there shirt and seeing your make up on it. That did not happen at all. My nose tends to get super oily. I sprayed it on my face as suggested and an additional spray on my nose and my makeup stayed flawless even running through the rain at the end of the night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clare11 Hands Down the Best
If anyone ever watches me put on my makeup, they're always curious as to what I'm spraying all over my face. But once they find out, they, like me, think it's ingenious. I have shiny, oily, skin and have tried many translucent, oil-absorbing powders over the years to combat it, but this is the one true product that can prevent the shine and set my makeup for my whole day. I'll usually reapply and spritz once again in the afternoon, but there's something magic about the DeSlick spray. And while it may be a little pricey, you get your moneys-worth, it lasts quite a long time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mjello2011 Okay but not amazing
I have extremely oily skin so wanted to try this product out (I got it when they were getting new packaging so got a pretty good deal on it). It is okay - I notice that my skin is less oily when I use this product but it doesn't completely get rid of the shine. If you have slight oil this would help but it doesn't completely control my oil. There is a slight smell when you first spray it but it does not linger and I don't notice it once it dries. Your skin feels slightly tighter when it first dries but works into your skin after a few minutes and you don't even feel it.

I bought this product from ulta because they told me that it was great as a setting spray. I had previously been having a lot of trouble because my foundation got all over my clothes. So, I bought it and have had wonderful results with it when it comes to setting the make up and keeping it off of my clothes but I have had a lot of problems because it says oil control but it seems like it brings out any oil in my skin and makes my shiny and kind of gross. It's really not helping with the oil control but when it comes to setting, I can say that it does do the trick.

I have EXTREMELY oily skin. I don't know why I waited so long to try this, but it is amazing!! Not only do I not look oily anymore, but it last until I wash my face. I spray my whole face (lips, eyes, and whole face). The bonus is that my lipstick/gloss stays long too! I know this sounds vain, but I like to wear the naked foundation when I go to the lake. I do my brows and a little mascara too. When I spray this spray over my makeup, it lasts even through wake boarding, swimming, and 9 hours on the lake! I'm definitely a fan and highly recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jacki Lasts through it all!
I wasn't going to post a review because it seems there isn't anything that can fully mattify my oily skin. Within a couple of hours I was shiny as always.
Yesterday I put on the setting spray before my morning class, went to the gyn for about an hour and a half, went to a club meeting where I watched a movie that made me cry, and went back to the gym for an hour and a half, and sure enough my make up looked just as it did that morning! That alone makes this product stand out from the other setting spray I've tried, even if I still shine though it.

This product is my go-to setting spray. It works great for keeping your makeup on throughout the day, and it also keeps oil reduced on your face. It smells wonderful and feels refreshing and invigorating. I apply it
1. after primer
2. after makeup routine is complete
1. if I want to feel refreshed and Im going out but dont have time to reapply my whole makeup routine.
2. if I know its going to be humid/hot outside I will apply more than 1 spray once makeup is done. I will apply it about 4 times throughout the process of putting my makeup on.
I find this product to be a must have, and I cant imagine not using it. It lasts a long time, and once you use it you will be an addict. 110% recommendation for this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DrRaptorRage This has been my makeup savior!
If you have oily skin and you don't own this, you're missing out. I don't know how I lived without this. I read that it leaves a sticky feel before I bought it, but after using it, I couldn't feel it on my face at all. It used to be that I would run my fingers over my forehead and leave divets in the oil on my forehead 2 hours after applying my makeup. I was so surprised that after hours of applying my make up (and a few hours of drinking) and there was NO oil on my forehead. It was amazing! If you have oily skin, do yourself a favor and get this.

Haha.. sounds dramatic... but seriously.
This will set your makeup SO well... my makeup finally last through a 9 hour workday, even when I rest my face in my hands.
I used DeSlick one morning... late afternoon decided to take my son swimming... when we got home, I glanced in the mirror & did a double-take. My makeup had stayed on through swimming!!!! Even bronzer!
It's expensive, yes... but soooo worth it, especially if you spend a lot on the makeup itself. DeSlick will keep it on all day. I've already been recommending this to friends!

I've been using this stuff for about a month now. I LOVE it. I have super oily skin, which would cause my make up to melt off of my face during the day. This stuff is magic. My make up will literally look perfect 12+ hours after I put it on. I hardly ever touch up anymore. The price tag made me hold off on buying this product for a long time, but when I realized the money I was spending on my make up was almost pointless since it was melting off, I decided to invest in this product. Couldn't be happier. A MUST for anyone with oily skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by xAshe Cannot say enough about this!!
This is THE BEST product ever. Seriously! If you are skeptical about this, then read this review!
I wear makeup on a daily basis: eyebrows, eyeshadow, eyeliner, foundation, concealer, eyelid primer, powder. And nothing could make it more flawless than this setting spray! I live in 100 degree+ weather so I'm constantly sweating. This setting spray is my primer, and my finisher. I spray it on my face before I apply any eye makeup and foundation. This blocks the oil from going through for a good 10 or so hours which makes the biggest difference when it's so hot all day! Then I apply my makeup and spray again with this product, then fan to dry and it seriously makes my makeup feel amazing for the most part of all day in this hot hot summer weather.

I have EXTREMELY oily skin. I use oil control primer, makeup for oily skin, and powder for oily skin, and after just 2 or 3 hours my face is oily already. My makeup practically slides off of my face. I have a friend who used this spray and she would use it on me when she did my makeup for special occasions. I saw the amazing difference, and I just HAD to buy it for myself. I use it after my primer before I apply my foundation and then after I put on my powder. It doesn't keep me shine-free all day, but I don't expect ANYTHING to do that with how oily my skin is. However, I can see a HUGE difference when I don't use this product. The only downside is that se times the bottles leak HORRIBLY :( even with the leaking, this product is still 120% worth buying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yasdnil Todays face brought to you by last nights makeup
I love this product!! I wear it dailyand it Keeps my makeup set for hours while I'm working. The makeup is easy to wash off at the end of the day but it stays set. My face is so oily I gave up on having makeup last all day but with this I can look fab without worrying about my face coming off in a few hours.
If I'm going out for the night I make sure to apply it before, during, and after the rest of my makeup is applied. My makeup will last all night even after dancing for hours and in the morning I don't have makeup everywhere.

Really simple to use. Spray from about arms length away, a few spritzs and you're good to go. This really held up to melting and smudging for me as I'm prone to touching my face. It can't stop you from the kind of melting from a workout level sweat, but it'll save you from a little dewy perspiring. It has a mild scent, a little alcohol in it but not overwhelming and as you're meant to hold your breath while spraying and it dissipates very quickly, I wouldn't call it unpleasant. Very long lasting. Will definitely buy again.

I am a competitive dancer which means I need my makeup always looking fresh and clean, but, because of my oily skin, it is hard to find products that will work well. I bought the sample size of the de-slick setting spray, and could not be happier! It managed to hold my makeup in place perfectly through an entire competition then a night at Disneyland and even some tears. I was most definitely impressed! That is, of course, just one of many occasions that this product has exceeded expectations; it is now my holy grail!

It's easy to find a setting spray that works well, but I've never used one that feels so light. It doesn't sound like a big deal, but walking around feeling like someone dunked your face in hairspray is not a great feeling. If I know I'm gonna need to spend a whole day in makeup, this is what I reach for. It keeps everything on my face in tact without affecting it whatsoever (as some sprays I've used tend to change the texture of foundation etc). If you wear a fair amount of face makeup this thing is a life saver!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lex22 Best Oil-Control Product I've Ever Used!
My skin is almost embarrassingly oily and I was always so self-conscious of my skin until this product! I set my makeup with it every single day when I leave for classes in the early morning and come back at the end of my day after work with my makeup looking exactly how I left it. At first I thought it was in my head, so I didn't use it for a day and my face not only looked like a grease ball, but also as if I hadn't even applied foundation that day. It's also amazing for going out! My skin looks flawless in pictures now when before I refused to take pictures because of the horrible shine I'd always have.
I swear by this product and recommend it to everyone. If your skin is oily, BUY THIS! It's hands down the best makeup product I've ever purchased. WELL worth the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by aprmadnna Love this stuff!!
I was real skeptical about this product at first. But.. when i have used this I have not had to touch up my make up and/or reapply a finishing powder throughout the day/night. My T-Zone gets super oily 2 hours after i put on my make up. But since I have used this product, my make up stays put, doesn't melt off and I don't get oily. I start off w/a clean face, moisturizer, primer, then i spray my foundation brush and apply my foundation. After putting on the rest of my face, I'll set it w/the the de-slick spray.

Rated 4 out of 5 by meglg89 Great setting spray, if only I wasn't allergic to it!
I love this spray. It is great for my oily skin and helps keep the oil at bay all day long. However, my skin doesn't seem to like this too well so I can only use it on special occasions. I'm not sure what is in this that I seem to be allergic to but if I use it more than two days in a row, I get little bumps all over my skin and it dries my face out. I still love this spray though and use it when I am going out at night or for special occasions when I want my makeup to stay for a long time looking great!

Holy cow, I just used this stuff for the first time today. Let me just start out by saying that I only work a five and a half hour day at my job. However, by the end of my work day, EVERY DAY, I look like a grease face. I have to blot and use powder and still don't feel like my face and make up looks fresh. Well, I got up at 6:30 AM today, did my make up as usual and used this setting spray. You guys, it is almost 5:00 PM and my face hasn't even the slightest bit of oil on it. It feels and looks like it did at 7 this morning. I did NO touch ups what so ever. I have spent time in the past looking up on Google why is my face so oily, how do I control it. Now I know. No longer do I have to worry about my face looking like a greasy oily mess throughout the day. I seriously love this stuff.

This is absolutely amazing!!!!!!! I have never used any make-up or make-up setting spray that has held as good as this one!!! The only thing I notice is that my foundation and powder don't hold as well but my eyeshadow, liner, blush, everything else stays put!!! I tend to have very oily skin and easily sweat in the heat and my make-up ALWAYS runs!! I began using this for nights out but I use it daily to keep my make-up looking fresh all day and even night sometimes!! Probably my favorite product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by ac246 Works as setting spray but not for oil
I like it as a setting spray but it did not take away the oil. I have combination skin so I tend to get a bit of oil on t-zone at the end of the day so I really wanted to try this product to combat that. I tried spraying it first before makeup and after applying makeup, but no difference still oil at end of the day. It did also make my face feel a bit sticky/tacky after spraying but nothing awful. I think if it's used as setting spray then does the job, but don't expect to be oil-free. Also I use acne treatments on my skin every other day so my skin is a slightly sensitive, spraying this product actually stung my face initially, was fine after it dried. Not a fan but I can't say everyone will have this experience. I mean my face could sting if I used a strong sunscreen as well for perspective.

This spray is absolutely amazing! I usually spray this either before I put my foundation on or afterwards, before my blush and eyes. My makeup last all day long and my oil is controlled. I don't have oily oily skin, but for my age, it tends to slick up a lot around noon time, but if I use this spray I don't notice the oil until around 7 at night (and I apply my makeup at around 6:30-7 in the morning). This is a great product and I also pair it with UB's All Nighter, total power combo!

I have very oily skin, like I literally have to use blotting paper within two hours of doing my makeup. But ever since I received a little travel size bottle of this stuff its like the freaking holy grail. My job is very labor intensive and I swear after putting this on I can go to work and not worry about my skin being all oily. This stuff works!!! Buy it!! I promise you won't be disappointed. Plus it makes my skin and makeup look extra flawless. Urban Decay products are the truth!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lopo Expensive waste of money
After much research, I tried this one, in humid hot Florida. It made my mascara run. So I sprayed it before applying mascara, which worked. However all of my makeup melted off, disappeared by noon. Maybe this made it last a smidge longer than without. I have dry to normal skin and I am in doors 95 % of the time. Also the bottle's nozzle was clogged most of the time, which was very annoying.
This claimed to be the best in humidity. Did not find this to be true.
Regretted this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Leesa It stays!
Oily skin and South Texas summers don't mix well. I first found the "drug store" equivalent by L'Oreal (UD parent company, btw) although it was not for oily skin. I did however find this version a few months later and have been using it ever since. It keeps everything where it should be for a full day and provides a nice smooth appearance as well.
I use it in the follow way:
-Apply liquid foundation

Rated 5 out of 5 by NurseLiz Finally!
I purchased this product at Ulta over the weekend and have used it 3 days in a row now. All I can say is, finally. Finally something that keeps my makeup on my face, instead of EVERY WHERE else, but with this spray, my makeup actually stays in place and has minimal transfer onto other surfaces (husbands face, husbands shirt, napkin, hand, etc.) It has serious mattify -ing effects, I'm usually dripping oil by 2pm, but this kept me matte all day! A must have for oily skinned girls!
