I’m always thrown off when someone asks me what they should be using- especially when it comes to skincare. & yes- most setting sprays I put in the skincare category! I actually use all three of these setting sprays because…they’re completely different! Which Urban Decay Setting Spray is best for your skin? Keep reading to get all the details!
If you’ve been following me for a bit- then hopefully you saw this post featuring all the new items in the Urban Decay Prep-Prime-Set genre. I actually reviewed the Urban Decay Prep Sprays here so be sure to check that out. I wanted to seriously grind the primers before telling you guys my thoughts so those are actually coming up soon! So this post will specifically focus on the Urban Decay Setting Sprays- Chill, All Nighter, & De-Slick! They’re all packaged exactly the same so I’ll cover that first. Slightly rubberized grip (which I personally love because I’m a klutz) & black with purple writing. Urban Decay signature, right? The large cap also has a smaller cap underneath. This makes me feel extra secure when I travel that they won’t leak but at home…I often go topless so I can just spritz & go. The mist itself is super fine- gold standard in my book as far as facial sprays go.
I feel like All-Nighter is the spray I reach for most often. When I think of setting spray I mainly think of two things- removing any powdery-ness on my skin & making it last flawlessly as long as possible. This formula is developed with SKINDINÄVIA who I think makes genius sprays as well. Their Bridal Spray I reviewed here? I mean YAS. What makes this spray different is that it doesn’t make me look oily or dry. I have combination skin & it doesn’t throw my skin off at all. I can set my makeup with powder & then give myself a few sprays & know I’ll look cake-less. According to Urban Decay- “patented Temperature Control Technology. It actually lowers the temperature of your makeup to keep foundation, eyeshadow, blush, and concealer in place—even in hot and humid or cold and windy conditions” which is insane if you ask me. I’m not a scientist…but what I do know is that it works! It never makes my skin tacky or wet & is an effortless finishing step.
This is the spray that I think really changed things for so many people. If you’ve ever been to a concert or hot place- even drier skin gets sweaty. & your makeup moves in unattractive ways. Plenty of people with oily skin use this daily because it truly keeps you looking matte. When I want to go more matte or know I’ll be somewhere I’m likely to get oily- I reach for this. Hands down, no questions asked. There’s a reason this specific formula is so iconic.
This is the spray I personally reach for less- until the heat sparks back up. I’ve actually put this in my bag to take with me to spray on my face! This works exactly like the All-Nighter formula but with a cooling mist. I often wear this on bare skin as well! Don’t let the cooling aspect freak you out either because it really is a microfine mist!
So which is your Urban Decay Setting Spray? Or will you love all three like I do? Please tell me in the comments below!
