Urban Decay All Nighter Make-Up Setting Spray – An Impulse Buy!


This has been on my review ‘to-do’ list for over six months now! Several times I’ve gotten myself poised to start tapping out my thoughts on it, only for another product or topic to come along and occupy my mind instead.

Actually, I’m not even sure why other posts have taken precedence. For this Urban Decay product is ridiculously good!

The Urban Decay All Nighter Make-up Setting Spray was an impulse buy I made while out Christmas shopping (I told you this post has been in gestation a while!).  I rarely purchase things on a whim. I’m your cautious shopper – my beloved grandmother would despair at the hours I’d drag her around different shops, so determined was I to spend wisely, though often ending up going back to the first shop we visited and buying the very first item that I had set my eyes upon!

I’d never thought about using a dedicated product for setting my make-up before. I’d always used a facial water spritzed over my face instead, though I’ve never considered that popular trick a particularly good one. I continued only because I like the feel of a toner sprayed on to my face (for more on that check out my toner post here).

So, this UD make-up setting spray caught me at a weak moment while out Xmas shopping in Debenhams on Oxford Street. It was on a special deal, part of a money-saving double pack (I gave the other one to my mum for Christmas – she also now raves about this product).

After applying make-up, you mist this 8"-10” away from your face in an ‘X’ and ‘T’ formation. You can feel the spray as you apply it, but it is very light and dries within seconds. You can’t feel anything once applied – I mention this in case you’ve ever accidentally sprayed hairspray over your face!

The formula is designed to fix your make-up for up to 16 hours - ‘it keeps you looking gorgeously just-applied: no melting, cracking or fading” – according to the brand blurb.

This really does a fabulous job of fixing make-up. You only need apply it once – no dashing off to the nearest loo after an hour or two for a quick re-spray/re-set. But what I hadn’t expected (and what I’m particularly joyous about), is the finish it gives to your make-up. It adds a notable (dare I say it) ‘airbrushed’ quality to the look of your foundation. 

I’m including a shot of my make-up here, taken directly after applying the spray. I was hoping it would show the lovely smooth finish, though the pic was taken on my old tablet which doesn't have a particularly hi-res camera, so I’m not entirely sure how useful this is. But pic aside, this really is an impressive product, and one that delivers more than it says on the tin!

The Urban Decay All Nighter Make-up Setting Spray costs £21 for 118ml. You can buy it here (I’ve just noted it’s a best seller on the UD website - it's also currently out of stock online!).

  1. Your skin looks lovely in this photo, I am not sure if it's your foundation or the setting spray. I love the sound of the spray, I could have done with this when I was in Las Vegas last week

    1. Thank you Melissa. It's probably a bit of both - foudation and setting spray! ;) Tx

  3. I love that Urban Decay setting spray, I have the other variation, Dew Me, from Urban Decay. It seems it was discontinued, so I will go for this one now :) I confess I don't apply it regularly, but I should, because all you said is true. It gives a beautiful finish to skin, and in the case of Dew me, it's not matter, rather dewy and I love it! So I agree with all you said! And, hahaha, I have the same experience you had - but myself in the position of your grandmother :) I have two friends that took me shopping with them. They sometimes didn't buy a thing and I ended up loaded. Other times, one walked long distances (I used to wear only high heels up to 2 or 3 years ago) and I couldn't walk anymore, and she went back to the first place she found something. The other friend tried a jacket 6 times, and bought it, to return the next week :) Another friend asked me once "let's go to Cheltenham"? I said, no no, I don't want to buy things I don't need - and I would have done so :) I am now an online shopper, I find it so practical :) But walking and seeing windows is also so good, from time to time! Hope you have a great weekend!

    1. Ha ha! Oh Denise, us women do like to shop and shop until we drop - and then some! Still, it's important to feel sure that we've bought wisely, is it not!? Tx

  5. I adore Urban Decay products! Their concealer is my all-time fave. This spray sounds amazing as well, though! T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com
