When I look back at beauty products I was skeptical about- makeup setting spray was definitely one of them. I couldn’t see the point- I mean why would you spray water on your face? But I was completely converted- like intensely. I have several bottles on hand at all times & I don’t attend events without a few sprays. Ever. So why not a spray before makeup? I’ve tried a few but these Prep Sprays from Urban Decay are what I’ve been testing! Urban Decay launched some amazing products for Spring 2017- I gave you a peek at all of them here! Keep reading to check out the Urban Decay Prep Primer Sprays!
Created in an exclusive partnership with Skindinavia and inspired by the Korean water trend, Quick Fix is even more hydrating than our B6 Prep Spray. This energizing formula is versatile enough for everyone (regardless of skin type), feels amazing, and is loaded with skin-nourishing ingredients like vitamin B3, Sepitonic™ M3 and coconut water. Feed your skin intense moisture as you prep, prime and balance your complexion.
Let’s start off with the Urban Decay QUICK FIX Hydra-Charged Complexion Prep Priming Spray because…it is my favorite of the two! My skin is definitely more combo to dry so the hydration aspect was very appealing. I’ve also been dealing with enlarged pores in a few areas so this spray was pretty much made for me! I use it after my skincare & before any makeup- as directed. I really do find that my foundation applies better & doesn’t move my skincare around as much!
In a clinical study of Quick Fix, immediately after use:*
• 100% of participants had a reduction in pore visibility.
• 100% had a visible improvement in skin radiance.
• 83% had a visible improvement in skin hydration.
*Based on a 30-person clinical study.
Our formula (created in an exclusive partnership with Skindinavia) is so scientifically advanced, it contains the FIRST patented, stabilized form of topical vitamin B6. We loaded this spray with skin-nourishing ingredients. In addition to stabilized vitamin B6, this high-tech formula contains antioxidant vitamin E and exfoliating willow bark.
Want another option? This is the Urban Decay B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Priming Spray & I love it for completely different reasons. This helps with oils in my t-zone which is perfect before an event in a hot room. Because believe me- I’ve been to those in a leather jacket & thought I was melting. This formula is nourishing but also manages to help with any excess oily areas- much like the Urban Decay De-Slick Oil-Control Makeup Setting Spray without being quite as intense.
In a clinical study of B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Spray, after 8 weeks of use:*
• 81% of participants had a measurable reduction in oil and surface shine.
• 72% showed a visible improvement in the appearance of fine lines.
• 78% had more radiant, even-toned skin.
*Based on instrumental measurement and clinical grading in a 30-person study.
So why do I like setting sprays? They actually make my makeup look, feel, & prolong better! Why do I like the Prep Sprays? They actually prepare my skin for a better makeup application! They aren’t just for makeup either- they’re beneficial to my skincare regimen in general. When I need even more hydration after my makeup is applied- Urban Decay Quick Fix works for that as well!
