Setting sprays have never really interested me because I just thought they were really gimmicky and didn't work. I tried a few drugstore ones and found that the did absolute nothing to help with the longevity of my makeup and if anything, removed it! However after receiving the Urban Decay All Nighter in my beauty advent calendar, my opinion completely changed! After the first use, I knew I would be a fan! I have heard so many people say great things about it and just wasn't sure if it was really worth the hype. Now I know it is a definite game changer!
I currently only own the smaller 30ml bottle just so I could see how it really worked and if I liked it but they also do a larger 118ml size. It comes in a white box with purple writing and purple paint stripes across the top. There isn't much to say about the packaging as it's quite simple but as I always say, it's what's on the inside that counts! I also think it looks so classy with the purple and white contrasting and I am a huge fan of all of Urban Decay's packaging! The bottle itself is white with the same purple detailing and purple lid. However, the actual texture feels so nice! It is really soft and almost velvety!
I honestly cannot get over how amazing this product is! It is a life changer and has made my makeup routine so much easier because I don't have to reapply throughout the day and my base makeup stays out throughout everything! Even the rain, wind and snow it will not budge when I use this! Before using it I thought it was so overrated but now I can't go a day without it! Urban Decay is the brand of the spray but it is by Skindinävia which is very well known for it’s great setting sprays. I spray this onto my face a few times just so it covers mainly my base. It is such a fine mist that isn’t too heavy and it feels so nice to apply. It is quite cooling which just feels so good, especially in the morning! The main issue that I found with previous setting sprays is the horrible residue that they leave behind. I always ended up with a white powdery residue on my face after using setting spray and it just completely ruins my whole base so does the opposite of what it is supposed to. However with this it doesn’t! It is a clear mist so doesn't leave any colouring or anything on your face! The effect that it leaves on my skin is just stunning, it adds a lovely airbrushed finish and smoothes out my skin so nicely and I love it! Before this my makeup would wear off after a couple of hours but now it can stay on for 9-12 hours which is just so amazing! Even around my nose and oily t-zone, my foundation doesn't smudge or fade with this spray. The other thing that I found is that it's waterproof and it lasts throughout snow, rain and wind; trust me I experienced a lot of this recently in the horrendous British weather!
This product is a complete life saver and I really do adore it! My makeup game has changed since using it and I couldn’t be happier with the results. It is 100% worth the hype and although it is quite expensive at £22 for the full size and £9 for the travel size, it is so worth it! The All Nighter Setting Spray has to be the best spray I have ever tried and it definitely makes my base last much longer! I really recommend anyone that struggles with the longevity of makeup to try this because I can assure you it changes your life!
