Review: Urban Decay All Nighter vs the Heatwave


I was sent the legendary Urban Decay All Nighter makeup setting spray last week, and I thought what better way to test it than in the UK heatwave we're having at the moment. 

The spray promises to keep makeup looking perfect for up to 16 hours without it melting, fading or settling into fine lines. Quite a promise! I decided to try it out for a full day at work in this super hot weather, and then for a netball match in the evening, hoping its temperature controlling properties hold out. 

First thing in the morning, here's my makeup


 I wore MAC Studio Fix Fluid foundation and MAC Pro Longwear concealer. I used NYX tinted brow mascara in blonde, MAC fluidline gel eyeliner in blacktrack and NYX Doll Eyes Mascara. I used MAC Creme Cup Lipstick and Charlotte Tilbury lipliner in Pillow Talk. Finally I used NARS Orgasm on my cheeks. I then sprayed on the All Nighter as suggested, in an X and T shape over my face. 

The spray was easy to apply and didn't wet my makeup too much. I felt it gave my face a very dewy look, which I'm not used to as I normally go quite matte. Maybe their De-slick spray would have been better for me



After a full day at work, sweating away in a hot office my face looked like this:


I felt my makeup had mostly stayed in place. My blushed was still on my cheeks and hadn't melted down to my jaw! My eyeliner was still around my eye and not on my eye socket or under my eyelids. Also it hadn't settled into the fine lines around my mouth from where I spend all day chatting which is quite unusual! I still felt more shiny than I was comfortable with, but looking at the before and after pictures it seems I'm just as dewy as when I left the house. 

I decided to push my luck, and wore my full face of makeup to netball! 



Again after netball, impressively my makeup was still fairly intact! A bit had wrinkled up around my nose where I'd scratched it, but otherwise it had faded fairly evenly all over!

Here are the before, after work and after netball photos


Overall, I think it helped my makeup survive some pretty crazy temperatures this week. I think it would have lasted better with a primer and power top-ups too. I found my foundation didn't crease into the lines around my mouth and make them look worse which I was very happy with. It also didn't flake as my skin dried out in the dryer patches which was lovely! My naturally very oily face was probably a big fight for this spray so I think it held up well. I imagine if you have normal or dry skin, this would have worked perfectly to give a lovely dewy texture to skin and maintain makeup. I think this would be perfect for a wedding or night out to keep skin looking fresh and lovely. 

Urban Decay All Nighter is £23.50 for a large bottle which will last a long time!
