Urban Decay All Nighter Spray Review-With Before and After Pictures

I have heard a lot people asking about this product and I have had it for months (since it came out). So I thought I should do a review on it with some before and after pictures after a long day at work and what my thoughts on it are. The All Nighter Spray cost $29.00 for 4oz bottle. I bought it during their 30% off sale which they do a few times a year.
This is what Urban Decay says it will do:
This groundbreaking formula mists on, ensuring that your makeup won’t budge for 16 hours.All Nighter mist prevents loss of color, melting, sliding, caking, cracking, excess shine, fading blush, drooping eyeshadow and lip color disappearance. AND it’s formulated to resist moisture, so you can fearlessly sweat, cry, or get your Jacuzzi on... It’s the new final step to your makeup routine. Just a couple sprays on top of your makeup and you’re out the door.


What I say it does: I have had this spray for months now and I like it! It helps control my oil, my makeup does NOT melt off me no matter how hot is outside (and it has been 90+ here in CT), and my makeup does last longer without any touch ups. There is no funky smell to the spray, it feels great on the skin, and the spray dries on the skin very quickly

The downside: It does not last 16 hours. I mean, come on! Really UD! That is just an insane marketing ploy.While this product does help to control my oil, I still need to apply my powder at around 2-3pm, but really that is about it, my blush is still in place and looks good till around 5pm and that is when I feel like I need to reapply it, just it enhance the color a bit more

All in all: This spray helps me feel confident that throughout my work day, my makeup will stay in place and shine free (for the most part). If you are going out after work, I would bring a few things to help you refresh your makeup, as this spray will not keep you or your makeup feeling fresh for that long!
I would recommend this spray to anyone who wants the to feel confident that their makeup will not budge for at least 8 hours, if you are looking for your makeup to last longer than that, then this spray is not for you. I think it works well and since it only works for half the amount of time it promises to work, I think you should by it when UD has their 30% off sale. Hey, they should have a 50% off sale because it only works for half the hours, but 30% off is great too!!

Below are before and after pictures. The before picture was taken at work, at 8:10am, roughly one hour after I applied my makeup and the All Nighter Spray. The after picture was taken at 4:32pm, after I went outside in 90 degree heat for my lunch and stayed in my a/c building for the rest of the time, with my little heater on in my cubicle (because the a/c here is just to cold!!!) All I did for the after pic was reapply my lipstick and that was it because I wanted to show the full effect of the spray. Normally I will use powder at around 2 or 3pm to absorb some of my oil.

Boy... do I look tired there!! lol but you can see how the blush color looks  faded and I am little oily on my cheeks..but the makeup dose not look runny or smeary. Oh..and yeah..the lighting at my job is AW-FUL!
I hope this review has helped anyone who is interested in trying this product. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks so much for this review - I was considering buying it but wanted to know if it will work for oily skin too. Either way, I think it will work better than MAC's Fix+.

Hi retrodiva,
I am so glad the review was helpful to you. I have never tried Fix+ but based on the reviews I have read on it, I do not think it is made for us oily girls. Give the All nighter spray a shot, let me know how it works for you
