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.

Eeeek, is that really the date already? I know August is well and truly over but I can’t pass up sharing my favourites for the month. As for the delay in posting it, well, I blame New York Fashion Week. You’ll soon see why that took up so much of my time.
