Review: Urban Decay All Nighter Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray

This is a product I purchased at the end of October through Sephora. I have oily skin and even with face primer my face looks a bit oily at the end of my work day and that causes my foundation to look darker. I totally dislike this about my skin as it makes my foundation look muddier with the intensity of the oils. I do like a semi dewy look but my preference is a matte face as I can achieve the dewiness with bronzers and shimmers on the cheekbones.

I have tried MAC's Fix + but I do not like it on my face as it creates extra shine and glossiness like a reflective paper.heehe. I mainly use MAC's Fix + for pigments and eyeshadows.

Ok enough of the chatter and on with my mini review and how I used it:

Step 1: I moisturized my face and let the moisturizer absorb, I skipped face primer to really challenge the product and see if it will hold up.
Step 2: Applied my liquid foundation, blush, bronzer, etc.
Step 3: Shook the bottle and misted 2-4 pumps (I do 2-3).
Step 4: Set this with MUFE HD Powder.

The result: I work about 8-10hr days and I must say that my makeup was still in place and I even had blush and eyeshadow on still after the end of the workday with just slight oiliness and this was excluding my face primer. I believe this held up well for this duration but the product claims it lasts 16 hours wow momma! I don't think I have ever worn makeup for that long consecutively without a break or washing my face but this is good enough for me.

Price: $29.00 USD
Size: 4.0 US Fl. Oz.


  1. I just saw this in an version of "oily skin" omg, i have problems with foundations and MAC Fix+ i use for pigments as well, because it accentuates my imperfections lol.

    I though this was a little too pricey, but if it works on oily skin and with no primer, thne hell ya, i will be buybi this soon!

  2. @ Aranza I was skeptical at first because of the price but hey a girl with oily skin in the desert has to do what a girl has to do lol. My makeup does stay and I have not had any reactions to it since November.

  3. I have this! I was hesitant to buy it but I'm glad that I purchased it anyway. It does work wonders and it allows you to go about your business without retouching! :)

  4. @ Toni I felt the same way as you about the price, but the outcome was good. Agree with you 100%.

  5. Yep...I love this product too esp when you have those nights out with the girls or clubbing. It really helps because I have oily skin as well.


  6. Oh that's just what I've been looking for. I wanted a setting spray because otherwise I don't even want to bother with foundation and reapplying... I also have really oily skin and had the same trouble. Thank you so much for this review!

  7. @ Dhalia, yes you are right its perfect for when you will be out dancing.

    @ Rilakumaki you are very welcome, glad it helped thx for reading my review there will be more to come.
