URBAN DECAY ALL NIGHTER SETTING SPRAY REVIEW
If you love makeup as much as I do, you know the most frustrating thing in the world is to spend an hour perfecting your glam, to watch it run down your face a mere few hours later.
As Samantha Jones said in Sex & The City “now I have my face running down my couture”. Yikes. Not a good look, am I right?
The first time I tried setting spray was a little over a year ago, and it was from a different brand I love… And the setting spray made a change, it was great and I loved it… But this is a totally different league. It’s become my holy grail, and if (God forbid) I forget it when I travel, I get really upset, ha!
My main issue with makeup is that I have oily skin, so makeup doesn’t really last that long on me, even if I use a primer. Over the years, I experimented with a few products and techniques (hello, baking!) that made a huge difference, but nothing ever made my makeup last as long as I would have loved to, not even the best primers.
Not only does this spray make my makeup last all day (and evening, and night), but it makes it look GOOD. No patchiness, no sliding off, no running down my couture - not that I actually can afford to wear couture, lol.
Before I discovered this setting spray, my biggest pet peeve used to be having to wear makeup the whole day, and then have to go to a bar or club that night. I knew that one miserable hour after getting in, I would look like a racoon that’s been stuck in a sprinkler’s crossfire.
Now, I do my makeup in the morning, finish it off with a few spritzes of this magical juice and go on. At night, if I know I’m going out and my makeup needs to last a few extra hours (read: until the morning), I’ll just refresh my face a little, top it off with a few more spritzes of All Nighter… And pull an all-nighter, looking fabulous AF, lol. Sorry, I know this was the worst, but I couldn’t not go for it.
And I know this has been on the market for forever, and everyone and their grandma uses it, but I wasn’t until a few weeks ago. So I figured if I hadn’t tried it out, some of you ladies (and boys) hadn’t either… Which is why I’m even reviewing this in the first place, because I feel like as many people as possible need to know about this.
Seriously, if you were considering buying this and just needed a little nudge, I’m gonna full-on push you. GET. TO. IT. You won’t regret it. I know when it comes to setting spray, a lot of people are afraid of giving it a shot, because it feels super counter-intuitive to spray LIQUID all over your fresh makeup. And listen, I get it, I’ve been there.
But this doesn’t “wet” your makeup, it just makes everything melt together in the most beautiful, glowy way, and it makes it last forever. OK, maybe not literally forever, but for a really, really long time.
As I mentioned above, I just can’t live without this anymore. It has changed my entire makeup game, and I’ve gotten so many compliments on my skin since I started using it. I won’t go on and on and on with this review, because as I said, this is something that’s been around for forever and I feel like everyone already uses it, but in case you’re one of the few people who isn’t, do yourself a favour and give it a shot.
Aaaand now I’m super curious to know: Do you use this setting spray? Please let me know in the comments below, if you use this one, if you use another one (which one?!?) or if you don’t use any setting spray at all!
Love you guys,
