Lou's Review's : : Urban Decay All Nighter Long Lasting Setting Spray

Aloha Bloggerinos,

What a weekend I have had! I will do a little post shortly because I have done lots of lovely weddingy bits and I know you like to hear about those :)

First of all though, here is a 'Lou's Reviews' of a product I was given way back in April for my 25th and have only recently started using it.

This is the Urban Decay All Nighter Long Lasting Setting Spray which retails at £17.00. It basically claim that if you spritz it over your make-up'd face, it will ensure there is no caking, smudging or smearing.

My initial thoughts on the box that contains the bottle were that the packaging seamed a little 'un Urban Decay'. My other UD products all have really cool or eye catching packaging, where as this just looks like someone lifted a picture of a skyline off the net and shoved a load of writing all over it. It definitely wouldn't have inspired me to buy it (gee wizz I hope the chum who bought me it doesn't read this-haha I am grateful really!).

Click on the picture below to enlarge if you would like to read the blurb.


Here we have the actually spritzer bottle. I like the pump as it keeps it hygienic but then what would you expect with a spritz product? I was even more disappointed with the bottle inside the box. White plastic and cruddy purple and black skyline picture just add to the cheapness. It's not something I am proud to display on my dresser that's for sure.

I tried not to judge a book by it's cover and have been using this product most days last week, for different scenarios. I apply my usual makeup, spray on a few spritzes of this and then go about my day. I tried this to work where I wear foundation, powder, mascara and eyeshadow and I also wore this to Liverpool when I went on a whistle stop trip, wearing a little more makeup.


Usually I find that by the end of the day my foundation and powder has faded and my eyeliner and mascara has slipped and smudged. I hoped that this product would alleviate this. It didn't.
I'm sorry to say that I thought this spray did little to nothing. It wasn't greasy or oily and had no scent but it also seemed to have no beneficial properties either. I may as well have flicked water on my face for all the good it did.

All in all, a very low review I know, but I suppose not everything is going to be a winner. I defo won't be buying this and I'm not sure if I will finish the bottle. What a bummer.

Have you ever used this product? Have you found a better setting spray that you think is really good?

On the upside, Mindycat doesn't care. How cute and shnuggly does she look on the blanket? Ahh.


Toodlepip!

  3. I was also going to buy this but don't think I'll bother now. I'll just keep reapplying throughout the day, inconvenient but cheaper! xx

  9. Do you think perhaps this product would help with oil control?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hi ChicGhost, I wouldn't recomend it for oil control. I think it did VERY little at all so if you were looking for oil control, to find a product or ask at the makeup counters for something specifically designed to target this. Let me know how you get on xxxx

  11. Thanks for the review - was wondering how it worked. I bought the Avon knockoff of this and wasn't all that impressed either. I do however find if I spray my brush with it before putting on eyeshadow/powder eyeline it stays longer! Or maybe it's just my imagination...

  13. aww sorry to hear this didn't work for you. I find these sprays tend to make the foundation separate even faster on me.

  17. I have tried loads of different products to help my make up STAY on my face. Unfortunately none of the ones I have purchase especially for this purpose have worked.
    However a friend recommended spray hair spray on my face ( not the most pleasant experience and possibly not the best for your skin ) but it worked a treat. I thoroughly recommend it!

    Thanks for the review and much love xx

  18. That's such a bummer the spray did nothing!! A product like that (which actually worked) would be magical.

  21. Great review Lou - I don't have a lot of faith in these kinds of products tbh but may have been swayed by the UD brand as I love their eyeshadows and PP... you've saved me a few ££ so thank you! :)
