The Urban Decay All Nighter long lasting makeup setting spray is packaged in a typical Urban Decay black and purple cardboard box. The box contains information about the spray, including a description of the product and the brand’s principal claims. Once the box is open, you will find a black soft touch bottle with a purple sprayer and a frosted white cap. The packaging is quite in line with the brand’s visual identity which helps you quickly identify the bottle in your makeup bag.
This makeup setting spray is quite weightless and will dry off in only a few moments.
The Urban Decay All Nighter makeup doesn’t have much of a smell, although sensitive noses can detect a hint of pickle like smell for a few seconds when spraying. There is no lasting smell on the skin.
The brand markets the setting spray as suitable for all skin types, thanks to its lack of oil and parabens. All Nighter is also branded as a vegan product, which will appeal to everyone for which veganism is important. Additionally, the brand claims that thanks to its patented temperature Control Technology, the spray, once applied, lowers the temperature of your makeup to keep everything in place, even in hot, humid, cold or windy weather. Urban Decay’s setting spray is said to hold makeup for as long as sixteen hours.
We found that most of the claims made by the brand on this product were true. Once applied on top of makeup the spray holds it for the day, about 7-9 hours in a hot and humid environment, and does not have any “oily” effect on the skin. It gives a nice, even sheen to your makeup without melting, fading or setting into fine lines.
After applying your makeup, shake the bottle and hold it about 20cm away from your face, and spray in the shape of an X and a T. Keep your eyes and mouth closed. Pro tip, you can also spray a bit of All Nighter on your brushes/sponges before applying your foundation or blush.
Our advice is to wait a few seconds between sprays, to give it time to dry and avoid layering the liquid. We found it is best for dry to combination skin types.
This setting spray retails in Lebanon for 44$/118ml volume. Compared to similar products from same range competitors such as Clarins Fix’ Make-Up, 30$ for 50ml, the Urban Decay product’s price is quite good and one of the least expensive per/ml for products of the same range. The shelf-life of the product once open is 12 month, which is the standard.
