My makeup pulls an All Nighter

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!

      That was just like me! Definitely give it a try, it's good that the travel size is available so you don't have to commit to full price, but i'm definitely going to get the bigger size after this! Aw thats so kind thank you so much x

    I love the new packaging! I always find that white makeup packaging gets dirty so quickly, especially if it ends up anywhere near your foundation. I've never used a setting spray, but this one sounds fab

      It's so nice and sleek isn't it, white packaging drives me mad! You should definitely start with this one if you do ever decide to try one out! x

    • May 18, 2017 / 4:39 pm

      Yeah they've got such an amazing range, i've only tried this one but i bet the rest are just as good! x

    • May 18, 2017 / 4:39 pm

      Oh yeah i've heard about that one too, i'd definitely recommend this one for your next purchase! x

    I love love love this setting spray, it literally allows my makeup to look nice for hours and hours on end. I'm glad you had a good experience with it! I have to agree with you, the new design looks wayy better. Sleek and doesn't get dirty as easily. Are you going to try other setting sprays now? xxx

      It's such a good product isn't it! Yes definitely but I'm so tempted to just buy the bigger size of this now ahah! x

    I've only recently gotten into using the All Nighter spray but I have no idea how I ever survived without it, with it doesn't quite make my makeup last all night it lasts a hell of a lot longer than it previously did, and keeps my face from looking cakey. While I'd previously just set my face with a crap ton on hairspray, I switched it up with the All Nighter and now I'm addicted to trying new setting sprays.

      oooo gosh hairspray! This is definitely an upgrade from there, i agree it really makes everything look more one with the skin and smoothed out! x

    I also used to think setting sprays were a bit of a gimmick, but you're right, urban decay changed my mind – I haven't tried to original all nighter, but I have tried to de-slick and loved it! Love their new packaging too!

      New package new purchase hahah! Not going to lie packaging really does sway me sometimes! x

    I've never been one for the setting sprays because to be truthful, I never understood the purpose! But reading this, makes me feel better and I can understand why I would need it! I really do want to get my hands on the all nighter and try it out! lovely post girly!

      Yeah packaging isn't everything but it does entice me to buy something haha! x

    I always struggle with foundation looking fresh all day.. This facial mist is on my wish list, I hope you are right that it will change my life haha I really like the new packaging as well!


    • June 18, 2017 / 7:35 pm

      It's great especially if your makeup doesn't usually last, i'd 100% recommend it! x

  11. June 18, 2017 / 5:35 pm

    I need this in my life. Working in front of a computer screen all day my makeup doesn't last all day and evening. This sounds like it will help. I've tried The Body Shops version without positive result so will give this a go instead 🙂 x

    • June 18, 2017 / 7:36 pm

      omg i had never thought that would effect the wear of makeup! I've learned something today! Definitely give this one a try! x
