High End Vs. Drug Store Showdown: Setting Sprays 

   In the left corner, weighing in 1.0 fluid ounces is the Urban Decay Oil-Control De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray!!! (Cheers and Claps)And in the right corner, weighing in 2.03 fluid ounces is the NYX Matte Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray!!!! ( more cheers and claps) 

Hahaha I had to!!

So there is always a never ending battle between High end and Drug store products! We love them both! Prices, quality, packaging, reviews?! There is so much to look at when buying makeup! I’m here to (hopefully) help with that! 

Today’s battle is the Battle of the Setting Sprays!!!!!

I LOVE Urban Decay! Who doesn’t?! They have amazing cosmetics! I had heard about this setting spray from a friend a while back and she told me she was in love with the product. Like me, she has very oily skin and she said it helped keep her matte all day and she swore by it, so I had to give it a go!

This product claims to control oil as well as have temperature control technology to keep you de-slicked most of the day! 

To be honest…I saw a bit of a difference but…not a lot! I did have to blot during the day but not as much as usual! I’d say it cut my oilyness in half which is great. I do give the product a thumbs up for sure! It helps to set my makeup, I did notice it helped it not budge as quickly as me not using a setting spray but I still got a little oily throughout the day, but it minimized it for sure!

As for the NYX Matte Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray, I didn’t really see much of a difference with the urban decay!!!! That’s a really good thing! This means I can stick with the NYX and save myself (and yourself) some money! Can I get an Amen Hallelujerrrrr (in Madea voice)!  

It keeps my makeup set for most of the day though I do have to blot.  The good thing is that this setting spray is water-based so it will not cause oilyness nor clog pores with any oils. 

Both products are good, they do the job. Both set and control oil from getting out of control. 

Comparing Prices: 

Urban Decay: $14

NYX:  $8 (7.99) 

Amount provided:

Urban Decay: 1 U.S. Fl OZ / 30 ML

NYX: 2.03 U.S. FL OZ / 60 ML
The Winner: NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray

Both are great, both feel exactly the same on the face, dry in a few seconds, and set makeup nicely and control oil production to keep face matte for most of the day with little blotting. But, You get double the amount for half the price you would pay for Urban Decay! It will last you longer and save you money!
Who should go up to battle next?! Let me know your thoughts!
