Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray

Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray
Price: $29.00
Where To Find: Sephora (sephora.com) or urbandecay.com

I received this product as a birthday gift (Thanks, Judy!).  I've used it pretty regularly during the work week, and I did try it once when I went out to the bars.  Overall, it's a really great product.  I usually have 14-hour work-school days, and in the hot and humid summers of metropolitan DC, this was probably the best place to test the product's Temperature Control Technology.

While my body still succumbed to the humidity (many days of coming home sweaty and gross in work clothes), this product did keep my makeup in place.  For me, the eyeshadow (on the outer edges), eyeliner and foundation on the forehead tend to be the first to melt away (and if I'm out partying, I hardly have any makeup on by the time I reach home), but this spray helped in keeping the makeup in those places intact!  There were a few  really hot days, however, when I wiped the sweat off my forehead, and I saw the foundation on the tissue/towel.  So maybe in 100+ degree weather with a heat index of 70, this product isn't perfect, but I can attest that my makeup is better than without having used it.

Another nice feature is that the spray is practically weightless when sprayed on.  Within seconds after  spritzing, I don't feel anything at all.  It feels like it evaporated or dries up the second it touches the skin.  At least you don't feel like you've added another layer to your makeup!

How to apply:
1. Shake it up before you use.
2. Spray an "X" (approx. 2 spritzes) about 6-8 inches away from the face for best overall coverage.

On Urban Decay's website, they have other makeup setting sprays.  So check them out too!
