Urban Decay All Nighter Spray £19 - Debenhams

Setting sprays are a product that I think every beauty blogger either owns or has at least have tried out. I was a bit late to this party but I finally decided to give it a go and purchase the Urban Decal All Nighter setting spray after hearing a fair few people praise it.

I'm not a big sufferer of makeup dissapearing from my face during the day I never have to reapply my entire face or blot away any oil, however the idea that my makeup will stay relatively decent from when I first apply it to when I take it off at night and help avoid any product fading/rubbing off, obviously was appealing!As a lot of you are probably aware ( my IRL friends are anyway) I fill in/create my eyebrows using my HD brow kit. Now there have been occasions where Ive checked myself out in the mirror (not in that way!) and found that half of one eyebrow has worn away slightly not looking quite so prominant as the other! This is really annoying - especially when I havent got my brow kit to hand to top up my brow!

This is the main reason why I bought the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray. I wanted to see if it would a) keep my eyebrows in place and b) Keep my makeup as a whole looking fresh and c) just see if it really was as good as everyone said it was.  I have to say I have been really impressed! I'll be honest and say that my makeup doesnt look EXACTLY like it did at 7:30am when I apply it (but I never expected it to), however it does keep it looking pretty good. I dont get home and look at myself in the mirror and think 'Argh I look like I have no makeup on!'  My eyebrows stay in place - the only times they fade is if I've had an itchy eyebrow and because I itched my eyebrow, it wore away! (That sounds a bit grim!). Overall I am glad I purchased it and I feel the price tag is really worth it. It seems to last forever. Ive had my bottle for about 2 months now and theres still loads left!

The product disperses evenly from the spray pump. Sometimes product can just shoot out quickly, which isn't what you want when directing this at your face. However the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray comes out in a fine mist, meaning you can pump the product towards your face easily. It only takes 2 pumps to cover my entire face. I do 1 spray diganonally across my face and repeat in the opposite direction. Then one final spray directly in front of my face. This ensures that I have got all angles of my face covered and makeup wont vanish from areas that I may have missed.  It does feel a bit wet on your skin when you first spray, however this quickly sinks into the skin and then it doesnt feel as though you have added anything on top of your makeup. If you've ever gone a bit heavy handed on the powder this setting spray sorts that out for you and reduces the cakey-ness! 

Have you tried the Urban Decay All Nighter makeup setting spray?

Much Love


  1. for your eyebrows, have you tried using a clear mascara to stop them fading away? You can purchase them for £1 from MUA in Superdrug, or if you want a pricier version mac's eyebrow gel?

  2. i really want this, i've tried the elf one and didn't find that it made much of a difference but read so much about this and think this is the product for me!

  3. Great review, definitely going to try this.

    I need to try this...I've got dry skin that seems to literally drink in my make up and I always end up patchy x

    I've never tried a setting spray but really like the look of this one and have wanted it for ages! x

  6. I bought this one because my prom was coming up and like you I don't have a problem with it wearing away, but I love this because I find it takes the powdery effect away from your makeup (ie making it look more natural!). In other words, I love this too!

  7. I'm glad to see this review as I've been after a setting spray for a while now. I have tried out one or two briefly but never felt that they made any difference, so perhaps this one is worth a go.
