Hi all! It is HOT in Kansas City. Every. Day. It has been since mid-May. And it is a challenge keeping my makeup looking fresh and staying in place.
I was sent these amazing products from Urban Decay and Wunder2 to test out for my honest review. And they were tested in the heat and humidity!
Urban Decay Chill Cooling and Hydrating Makeup Setting Spray ($32 USD) — I love anything that will cool me down in the summer time! This spray features cooling time-release Temperature Control Technology that actually chills the surface of your makeup – to keep it looking gorgeously just-applied for up to 12 hours. Developed in an exclusive partnership with Skindinavia, UD’s groundbreaking, tested formula holds foundation, eyeshadow, blush and concealer in place.
I use this for days that I know I’m going to be out in the heat and I want my makeup to stay in place. It feels cool going on, but not cold. It’s a very pleasant feeling. The sprayers on the UD mists are all so good, and aren’t harsh at all! This has become a summer essential for me.
Urban Decay De-Slick Oil Control Makeup Setting Spray ($32 USD) — This spray mists on weightlessly to control oil, deflect surface shine and keep skin looking beautifully matte. High-tech ingredients help keep foundation, shadow and blush from smudging, sliding or fading – so you hardly ever need to touch up.
This is great for days that I know I’ll be out in the heat for a prolonged period of time and that the oil is coming. I don’t reach for it as much as I do the Chill spray, but it does work and helps keep my makeup on my face.
Urban Decay All Nighter Waterproof Setting Powder ($34 USD) — I love a good setting powder and I was excited to try a water proof one! This weightless powder claims to instantly makes any foundation totally waterproof for a mattified complexion that lasts all day, no matter what. This high-tech formula blurs pores and imperfections and blocks shine, without dulling your inner glow. Your luminosity shows through while the powder keeps moisture out.
I agree with the claims that it mattifies but doesn’t look dry on my skin. That’s important to me as I age, and the fact is my face isn’t oily. But it does get greasy in the summer when it’s so hot and humid. The combo of this and the Chill or De-slick setting spray really keeps my makeup in place all day!
Wunder2 Super-Stay Liner ($14.95 USD) — Wunder2 24-hour wear Super-Stay Liner’s ensure that after just one application, your look will stay set and picture perfect from morning to evening! Waterproof and smudge-proof, the highly pigmented and easy-glide pencil eyeliners are a must-have beauty staple that create a perfect, full lash line or a playful, colored look that glide on with ease. Super-Stay Liner’s are available in the three collections of ‘Essential’, ‘Metallic’ and ‘Glitter’ finishes to complete any makeup look depending on your mood.
These shades from left to right are Glitter Aubergine, Glitter Pink and Metallic Rose Gold. I swatched these, waited about a minute, then rubbed the swatches vigorously. Then I took the photo. As you can see, they didn’t budge!
All three of these shades are perfect for summer looks, but I really love the Aubergine on my top lid and the Rose Gold on the bottom. They look amazing together. And they really glide on smoothly. Honestly, I probably will give the Pink one to my daughter, because I won’t reach for it. But it is pretty.
What products are you using this summer to beat the heat?
