Urban Decay Long Lasting Setting Finishing Spray, promises to make my make- up last all night. I have seen setting sprays over the years and always thought they were a extra ‘fancy’ step in make- up routines of beauty gurus that wasn’t really needed. However, I hate getting home from a night out or a long day, going to remove my foundation and finding there is hardly anything left to take off, so I decided to enter the world of finishing sprays and see what happened.
I did a bit of research and decided to try this one, I have not had much experience with Urban Decay, I have Naked 1 & 2- which I love, but have tried nothing else. (I have been hearing a lot of chatter about the Naked concealer though- has anyone tried that?)
The packaging is simple and practical, although quite large which is good and bad- lots of product but not handy for travel. To use you just spray from about 8-10 inches away in a ‘X’ and/or ‘T’ shape, with one spritz per axis. It is very wet when you spray and it is kinda weird to be honest- much more liquid than the mist I expected. My first reaction was to look in the mirror to see where my make up had been smudged by it- the answer none of it moved!
It dries really quickly, I had originally wanted the ‘Cooling and Hydrating’ version but when I swatched at the counter, I found that it took a long time to dry while the ‘All Nighter’ melted to feel like nothing on your skin in seconds.
Was it worth it? This is the only setting spray I have ever tried but….. it did make me make-up last longer as promised.
I would not say that this is an essential step in the make up routine but it is a nice add on, with little time or effort for a good pay off. The product is expensive but I feel given that you use so little each time it will last a while. Had anyone else tried it?
