Review Overview

This specialty product is sold as a makeup-setting spray for long (really long) nights out on the town. You’re supposed to mist this post-makeup and enjoy worry-free wear for an impressive 16 hours. What this ends up being is hairspray for the face. The amount of alcohol means it dries quickly, allowing the film-forming agent to form a seal on skin that helps prevent makeup from fading or smearing, but that also can have a tacky feel on skin.

The claim that this has temperature-control technology is silly, because it doesn’t do anything that plain water or alcohol wouldn’t—talk about overwrought claims! This product contains completely ordinary ingredients that are incapable of protecting your makeup from body temperature changes. Overall, given the cost and formulation issues, this is not great for your skin or as makeup.

Claims

This groundbreaking formula mists on, ensuring that your makeup won’t budge for 16 hours. Really. Weightless but powerful, All-Nighter’s temperature control technology keeps your makeup from melting down when it’s warm and humid, or dehydrating when it's cold and windy.

Ingredients

Water, SD-Alcohol 39-C, Polyhydroxystearic Acid, Isononyl Isononanoate, Ethylhexyl Isononanoate, Sodium Cocamidopropyl PG-Dimonium Chloride Phosphate, PVP, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Methyl Diisopropyl Propionamide, Dimethicone PEG-7 Phosphate, PPG-3 Benzyl Ether Myristate, Gluconolactone, Sodium Benzoate, Glycereth-5 Lactate, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Fragrance

Brand Overview

Urban Decay At-A-Glance

Strengths: Workable options in almost every category; excellent cheek tint; bonanza for anyone who wants lots of shiny eyeshadows; good mattifier; bronzing powder; brow products; makeup brushes.

Weaknesses: Mostly average to poor mascaras; limited foundation shades and some disappointing lip glosses; the products designed to help makeup last longer don't help.

From its unconventional beginnings in 1996 with the debut tagline of "Does Pink Make You Puke?" Urban Decay has been at the forefront of the ongoing trend toward unconventional colors. Their approach to beauty is still rooted in steering clear of the norm, but for those creative, unconventional folks who want the opportunity to express themselves with well-formulated, edgy products, this is the line to look to.

Now representing itself by the decidedly tamer "Beauty with an Edge" slogan, the line still offers several shiny options (which excel by virtue of how well they cling to skin), but the items that really deserve your attention include some of their mascaras, bronzing powder, blush, and brow products. The brush collection is highly recommended and priced on the low end when compared to other department-store lines, and Urban Decay counters (as opposed to Sephora stores, where the line is typically sold) offer helpful literature about how to design a complete makeup look. The colors may be unconventional and more clownish than classy, but their placement advice is right-on.

Shortcomings of this edgy line include the lack of lipsticks and some glittery products that apply terribly. Those who appreciate products that make a statement (though it may not always be one that puts you in your most flattering light) should explore the best of what is offered here, as should those whose makeup concepts occasionally lean toward the adventurous side.

Great for Oily Skin

I've tried lots of primers and none made my makeup last or controlled oil (the slimy silicone ones made it worse!). So I decided to try this spray and it works great. I have super oily, acne prone skin and this takes away my need to blot all day (or once, max, if it's a hot day), and I used to blot every hour or so. It also doesnt break me out, and it makes any powder makeup look more natural. I guess the ingredients are not considered good for the skin, but, but... it works!!!

Works Great

I spray this on according to the directions and it doesn't make my face feel tight or tacky. It takes down shine and helps my makeup last longer. I don't like the price but noticed the travel size is a lot cheaper and lasts long enough for me.

Dupe for this?

Ok so I have oily skin and I really like this product! The only cons for me is the price. But since I've read this I'm worried it may not be so good for my skin. Can you recommend me some dupes or products like this one but with good properties for my skin? Thanks!

Surprised by reviews. It does work!

Before finding this product my foundation really only lasted a couple hours before wearing off, becoming patchy and and letting blemishes show through. Now my makeup last all day and into the night - particularly on areas where I am not as oily. On oilier parts of the face it does help, but I find that the choice of foundation and primer makes a difference too.

Does not do what says on the package

I wish I have read the review here before buying this. It makes the foundation really stand out and be noticeable what is not what I wanted - make up looks cheap and like you have oily skin. I ended up with shiny skin all over my face, this spray goes in the bin. Do not recommend, waste of money, extremely disappointed.
