Beauty Feature: REVIEW- Urban Decay All Nighter

Urban Decay All Nighter - Long-Lasting Make-up Setting Spray 
£19.50 - Urban Decay at Debenhams


·      This product really works. Safe to say that on my first few uses of it I got a bit spray-happy and sprayed on a lot more than the recommended amount, but as my faith in the product grew I realised that a simple X shaped spray across the face was all I needed to keep my make-up looking fresh ALL NIGHT.     
·       Now, I am obsessed with make-up and so wearing this product didn’t keep me from topping up with a slick of lipstick or a sweep of mascara here and there BUT the main point is that I wasn’t in the bathroom every half hour frantically checking for a make-up meltdown. I was out enjoying myself care-free, and when I got home I wasn’t horrified by my make-up reflection but pleasantly surprised!

·      The product actually makes your make-up look better! The spray adds a luminosity to your face creating the dewy effect that I love. If you’re more a matte fan however this can be resolved by dusting some translucent powder over the top.

·       The product itself lasts a long time depending on how you use it. It comes in a fairly big 118ml size and so can last a good four to five months if used only when going out. If you’re a busy individual and wear the product every day in the day-time I’d expect the bottle to last around two to possibly three months. Another great bonus to this product is that it also comes in a travel size (Or as I like to call it, handbag-sized!) of 30ml, meaning it can easily be fitted into a handbag or purse for on the go make-up confidence.


     Sadly this seemingly miracle product does have some downsides. Namely the price. A 118ml bottle will put you down by about £19.50 with prices ranging a pound above or below at different retailers. To soften the blow however, I recommend buying Urban Decay products from Debenhams as the store often has online discount events across health and beauty products. 

·      The packaging is a standard spray pump, so that does mean you’re left over with a small amount of product once the pump cannot reach the liquid. The cap is easy to unscrew however and any left-over product can be easily poured onto your hands and patted on in key areas. (NOTE: only do this when spray has run out, the best application method is to use it as a spray.)

·      The product contains SD alcohol (denatured alcohol, often seen on labels as 'alcohol denat.'). This is an alcohol found in many cosmetic products in small amounts. However if using this product on a very regular basis it can and will dry out the skin. I would therefore not recommend using it as part of your everyday routine.
