Before continuing on with the review let me enlighten some of you who are unaware about a make up setting spray and how it is used. Its a spray used primarily for refreshing and hydrating your face while at same time keeping the makeup locked into place for a longer time and so it acts somewhat like a primer except instead of applying it under the makeup, you apply it over.
I would like to emphasise the fact that this product might work according to your skin type and climate where you live. My review was obviously based on it being tested on my combination type skin and where I reside [UK - primarily cold climate].
Part of my skin has oily regions on the sides of the nose, chin and forehead and my makeup slides down from these areas after few hours and its not a pretty sight!
When I first applied the setting spray it came out in form of a fine mist which felt refreshing and cool. I liked the fact that it didn't have an unpleasant or strong scent as my nose is sensitive and strong smells make me sneeze! It felt extremely light on my skin, took seconds to dry and once dry felt completely non-sticky. My makeup looked great for hours and there was no irritation or redness of any kind.
The product claims that it’s supposed to make any kind of makeup last for at least 16 hours, while its true that I did experience longer wear on my makeup than any other day sans mist, I doubt if it actually made my makeup last any longer than 10-12 hours.
At £17.50 (from Boots), it's quite expensive but it works fabulously for me! I would definitely recommend this Urban Decay All Nighter Long Lasting Makeup Spray to anyone who wants their applied make up to last longer than usual on them!
The big question here is does Urban Decay All Nighter Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray live up to my expectations? My answer is a big YES! It has now become my go-to finish spray!
