I used to think setting sprays were a bit of a fad, a modern invention that i wouldn't add to my daily routine, that was until i got to try the iconic Urban Decay All Nighter .. I mean if anyone is going to convince me it'll probably be Urban Decay right?
You're probably already familiar with the All Nighter setting spray. (if you aren't, where have you been for the last few years?) The bottle has had a 2017 makeover, it's the same original formula just repackaged. We all need an update now and then, kinda like when you get drastic haircut in January, "new setting spay new me" type of thing.
If you've been here before you'll know packaging is a thing for me, i know it shouldn't sway a purchase decision but let's be honest it does. Even though i've never owned the originally packaged All Nighter, i've seen enough instagrams to know i prefer the new packaging. The black and purple is a beautiful combination and i can see the previously white bottle getting dirty quickly, so the new packaging is a welcomed sleek and shiny update.
So like i said earlier on, i used to think setting sprays were a weird and pointless invention, my makeup usually lasts well all day so i didn't really think i'd have use for one - i was wrong. The first day i used this i was confused, i was so skeptical that when i actually saw results i was just convinced i was having a good makeup day. I used this on the days following my first use and i had to admit it to myself, the setting spray was actually making a difference to my makeup.
The overall look of my makeup was just better, everything seemed smoothed out and kinda more "one with my face" if you get what i mean? I wear full coverage foundation so it can appear heavy at times, but this made it look like i was wearing a much thinner layer without having to compromise on coverage.
My foundation does usually last well all day, it doesn't go patchy or come off when worn alone, but i did notice the days where i wore the spray on top it did wear better. Even though it usually lasts well, everyone gets deterioration with their foundation, but the spray made the deterioration much less noticeable. It didn't settle into lines, and when taking my makeup off in the evening i noticed my makeup looked better at the end of the day when i wore the spray than on days where i went without.
This has glowing reviews for prolonging the wear of makeup that wouldn't usually stay on, so if you find your foundation does come off during the day this will change your life.
I also think this would be an incredible makeup refresher, i usually hate putting my makeup on first thing in the morning and wearing the same face of makeup out in the evening, but i feel like you could just spray this onto your face half way through the day and instantly feel like you've just reapplied your makeup. Even better that the makeup will still look like it's been freshly applied, thanks to the added longevity.
It's also oil free, paraben free and non sticky, so don't worry about going overboard, i can't even feel this once it's dried down.
I'm truly a setting spray convert, i can't believe i didn't catch onto this earlier. My makeup is getting more bulletproof by the day, thanks Urban Decay!
