Urban Decay for make-up that lasts

Thursday, 18 May 2017

So you love your make-up but wish it could last longer? We’re pretty sure it’s a resounding ‘Yes’ all round.

Urban Decay released their range of make-up setting sprays and primers and it definitely changed the game. It’s true that the benchmark of great make-up is it’s staying power, but often your go-to products look amazing and fail to last all day. With a selection of products based on your needs, and an added boost of skin-perfecting primers, you’ll be spoiled for choice.

Stop make-up meltdowns

For beauty #lewks that actually lasts, Urban Decay introduced Makeup Setting Sprays developed in an exclusive partnership with Skindinavia. Choose between the All Nighter which lasts for up to 16-hours without melting or fading, as well as the De-slick that helps control oil, sliding and smudging; and the ultra-cool Chill setting spray that features time-release technology that actually cools the surface of your makeup to help it last for up to 12 hours without smudging or settling into fine lines.

The black soft-touch bottles with a purple sprayer and frosted white cap look uber professional, but the bonus is it actually works!

Hydrate, prep and soften

Set the scene for your make-up and give your skin a quick boost with the B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Priming Spray. This soothing spray preps, primes and balances the complexion while evening out skin tone, absorbing oil and reducing shine. Your skin will definitely appreciate the hit of vitamins, antioxidants, and exfoliating willow bark.


For sunscreen and make-up that matches

The Urban Defense Complexion Primer prepares your skin for the good stuff (make-up), and also contains the not-to-be-missed stuff (SPF)! We can no longer choose between a great SPF and our make-up, because sun damage – even though certain brands of SPF don’t quite mix with our make-up and hopes for it staying on all day. Farewell, stickiness and white cast. Finally, a sunscreen that doesn’t interfere with your make-up!

Urban Defense contains SPF 30 and works to protect, prime and smooth skin, as it minimises the look of pores. Make-up applies better and lasts all day.

Colour correct, blur flaws and control shine

For flawless-looking skin and the perfect base for your make-up look, try the Self-Adjusting Complexion Primer. The colour correcting formula features encapsulated pigments that actually adjusts to your skin tone. So how does it work? Micro-encapsulated beads of pigments are suspended in the formula and burst on your skin, adapting to your skin tone as you apply. High-tech stuff!

Enjoy a velvety, flawless skin, and make-up that lasts all day. Top tip: The formula releases more pigment the longer you blend, so once you achieve your perfect match, you’re done. They had us at flawless-looking skin!
