Makeup Disappointment: All Nighter Finishing Spray

There are a variety of makeup setting products and while I don’t use one daily (who really needs to set their makeup for the day? If you do, you’re probably using the wrong makeup) I’d love to find one worth using on special occasions. I had such high hopes for All Nighter, a spray makeup setting product from Urban Decay but it only gets a B- grade.

I tested All Nighter 5 times total with a combination of makeup. I used it with a foundation primer and liquid foundation and also when I used only a light layer of powder Bare Minerals foundation. I thought the results were better with the foundation primer…but that could have been a result of the primer.

Overall, it didn’t make my make up stay any longer than it would have otherwise and while it didn’t make my face oily, I thought it increased the shine. Urban Decay makes a few variations of All Nighter, including a shine-reducing finishing spray, which might solve that problem.

Also, unless you’re going to make this a daily product, it would take ages to go through the fairly large bottle. If you want to give it a go with less investment, here is a smaller size.
