Day 16 is coming a bit late due to my travelling and mandatory screening of the latest Star Wars movie. I wish I could say that I am sorry, but I am not. Okay, I am a bit, but not too much. I had to do it! It is tradition in my family. Anyway, day 16th is a product from the Selfridges x L’Oreal beauty advent calendar and it is one product that I never knew I needed. The product in question is the Urban Decay All nighter setting spray.
The Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray is not the first setting spray I have used. I know that might come as a shock to those of you who have been following me since before I started wearing makeup! However, I truly did try a few setting sprays before, even when I was not entirely sure what their purpose was. Okay, now that was embarrassing, but totally true. Sadly, I was pretty unlucky and the first few setting sprays I ever tried were duds so even though I have seen so many bloggers try out the Urban Decay spray I was not that interested in trying it out myself. Boy, oh boy, that was a mistake.
I don’t wear a lot of makeup, I usually wear foundation, lipstick and eyeliner really so the effects of the spray were not entirely visible on day one. (Also, I do not look like someone erased my face as my foundation usually allows my natural blush to shine though, just in case you were wondering!). However, after a few days, the effects became more visible. A trend was becoming clear to be more precise. After a long day spent running around London my makeup would look almost flawless by the time I would get home at night. Usually it still looked pretty okay as I do not wear a lot that could be out of place, but now it looked even better. It looked almost like I had only recently applied it.
Seeing the results, I decided to test it when I went to a Christmas party and see if the same would stand under those circumstances. Even as I wore a full face of makeup – foundation, concealer, blush, bronzer, highlighter, eyeliner, mascara, eyeshadows (no brows for me) and spent several hours in a crowded and incredibly heated place, my makeup still looked incredibly good by the end of the night.This test was important to truly see just how great the product actually was!
To say the least, I am in love with the Urban Decay setting spray as it allows me to look great even after an entire day and it requires minimal effort to apply. Furthermore, you won’t feel it on your face a few second after it sets nor will it leave your face sticky and that is always a good thing in my book. I already got my full size version of one of Urban Decay’s setting sprays and I cannot wait to play with it this winter.
You can get it here.
