What is the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray?

Urban Decay has quite a few makeup setting sprays, all of which are impressive. However, the All Nighter Setting Spray is my favourite, simply because as its name suggests- it lasts all night. The spray is made to keep your makeup intact for 16 hours.

The Formula of the Setting Spray

With a unique formula, the setting spray holds your makeup without you feeling like you have anything on. Urban Decay collaborated with Skindinavia, which is a brand that specialises in setting sprays. Together they developed this groundbreaking formula.


The formula features a patented Temperature Control Technology, in easy English that means that the setting spray lowers the temperature of your makeup so that it never gets too hot.

The genius of this means that in hot weather, or at parties where we all tend to sweat, your makeup will not budge. Your makeup won’t get hot which means it won’t get a chance to run or smudge. I told you, it’s life-changing! Not only does the All Nighter help your makeup to stay on longer it also helps it stay on better with a more natural finish.

How to use

Use the setting spray after you finish applying your makeup. If you’re using setting powder, apply it before the setting spray. Setting spray is always the last step in makeup.

Hold the setting spray 8″–10″ away from your face and mist your face 2–4 times, in an “X” and “T” formation, until fully saturated. Wait a minute for it to dry before touching your face.

My Honest Review of the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

I initially bought the All Nighter Setting Spray to help my makeup stay on better. I didn’t even know about all the other benefits! To say I was pleasantly surprised is an understatement! The first time I used the setting spray I was wearing Too Faced Born This Way Foundation. I love the foundation, however, you can see the foundation when wearing it since it’s on the thicker side.

the best makeup setting spray that you need

After applying the All Nighter Setting Spray you could no longer see the foundation. It sort of just blended into my face in the most natural way. The setting spray takes away any makeup that has settled into lines. It gives my face a beautiful matte finish and what’s more, is that my makeup didn’t transfer or budge throughout the day.

This setting spray has given me newfound confidence to go out in the heat and to go to parties. When I get hot, like most people I tend to sweat and it is often obvious on my face, especially when I wear makeup. With my face sprayed I can go out with confidence that my makeup looks natural and that it won’t move.

It stops any shine and the best part is that the makeup does not budge. Well, kind of. The make around my eyes has always been the hardest to stop smudging and while the All-Nighter helps, it’s not quite enough. You can read here how I stop my eye makeup from creasing and smudging.

I also love how lightweight it is, you won’t notice you’re wearing anything on your face. It looks natural and feels natural without any sticky feeling or heaviness.


My Thoughts on the Urban Decay Makeup Setting Spray

I highly recommend the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray for those looking for longer-lasting makeup with a more natural finish. Made for all skin types, it can be worn over any makeup. Eventhough it’s made for all skin types, oily and combination skin tend to enjoy this setting spray more than dry skin. This finishing spray is one of Urban Decays’ best makeup products!

  1. The urban decay all nighter spray does actually seem very great to know of and surely would be a must get. Wearing a make up and seeing it washing off the face as a result of sweat or anything else is often embarrassing and as such, this would be a balanced purchase and also serve good benefits. It is surely a must buy for me.

  2. I think I must be like your mother as I have never used a setting spray before. But I think you have me convinced to give this Urban Decay All Nighter Spray a try. I also checked out some of the reviews on Amazon and it looks like everyone only has good things to say about it. I’m going to try it out. Thanks for the review. I’ll let you know how it goes.

    1. I didn’t make the stuff up:) I’m sure you’ll love it!

  3. I love setting spray, they just put my make up in place all day. I used the exact one Urban Decay All Nighter before and I have to tell you. After long hours of us girlfriends going clubbing, my make up is still intact. All my friends gave me a compliment on that and all of them now own one. I agree with you that it is a best invention ever! Cannot wait what will they invent next. Currently I am using the magnetic lashes and eyeliner, the best invention ever. I no longer have to deal with glues. 

    1. Urban Decay has some pretty neat products! Their magnetic lashes are seriously genius! 

      Thanks for stopping by:)
