Makeup Setting Sprays are an essential part of my makeup routine. Urban Decay make some of the best and have been since their introduction about 6 years ago. I’ve had a version of every single one of their packaging releases, and it was only in 2013 that they went through their last update, but 3 years on Urban Decay are preparing to roll-out their latest packaging and they have some new releases in the works too.
The new spray packaging takes a slightly darker turn, but it’s for good reason. Poor sales? No. Faulty or malfunctioning? No. It’s simply because Urban Decay’s cofounder and chief creative officer, Wendy Zomnir, was unhappy with the latest version. Zomnir explained her discontent with the current bottles to WWD:
The bottle picked up makeup grime, and my fresh pretty white bottle always looked grungy and gross.
The change has come with Urban Decay swapping the clean and minimalistic white bottle design for a soft black bottle capped with a lavender-hued mist sprayer and labelling. Thankfully, that award winning formula on the inside remains unchanged changed.
Urban Decay’s setting sprays created in partnership with Skindinavia – All Nighter, De-Slick and Chill – will be joined in a repackaging of their complexion primers in new lime green containers. I’m not sure I like that idea but they will stand-out, and isn’t that something we’ve come to count on from Urban Decay?
There will be a new spray to watch out for as Urban Decay expand on their complexion primer range with the addition of the new Quick Fix Hydra-Charged Complexion Prep Priming Spray. Quick Fix is set to be a lifesaver for dry skinned beauties like me, as Zomnir explained:
If you put makeup onto a dry face with dry patches, as soon as you apply it, that dry flakey skin is magnified to the eye. This improves the look of your skin instantly,
Even if you are not wearing makeup, it will make your skin look better. That extra boost of hydration plumps everything up and makes you look refreshed.
I look forward to trying out their new addition but I’m honestly tempted to stock up on the old packaging of the setting sprays while I can.
A specific release date is yet to be announced but they are slated for Spring 2017 so keep an eye on the stockists websites to get them when they land.
