Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray Review

Disclosure: Purchased with my own $$.


I love foundation, but it doesn’t always love me. It always looks flawless right after putting it on. However, after a few hours it can get patchy, cakey, or even fade away completely.


Since my teen years I’ve always set my makeup with powder because there didn’t seem to be any other options. When I saw this little baby at the Sephora checkout section I couldn’t resist trying it.

I was impressed with how well if worked, and I think its my new Holy Grail way to set my makeup.

Urban Decay says:
A technologically advanced and hypoallergenic makeup setting spray that’s suited for all skin types and keeps your makeup in place for up to 16 hours.

Best if: You’re looking for your makeup to last all day, without looking cakey

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray Review
How To Use:

1. I wait for my foundation to dry for 2-3 minutes.

2. Spray it 3-4 times an arms length from my face.

3.Fan it with my hands a few times.
What I loved:
Effective: The longest I generally wear makeup is 12 hours, and it kept it looking fresh for that long. It didn’t look as great as 12 hours earlier, but it didn’t get patchy/cakey either.

Sets Everything: Powder doesn’t let you set your blush/bronzer/ect, but this helps keep them in place. This is a great way to make lower end products last longer.

What I didn’t like:
The price: My mini bottle lasted me only around 2 weeks of daily use. Obviously the bigger bottles will last longer, but it is still around $14/ounce. Compared to a powder compact that generally lasts forever this is kinda pricey.

You may want to only use it when you really need your makeup to look perfect all day. However, as amazing as it is I want to use it everyday!
