Product RAVE: Urban Decay Setting Spray

Ohhh my goodness. Urban Decay has managed to make me fall in love for the millionth time. I have been scouring the cosmetic market for a few years looking for the perfect setting spray...and here it is:

Urban Decay's All Nighter Long Lasting Setting Spray!

The Spring and Summer seasons are especially humid in the Midwest and I used to find myself frequently having to check my makeup in my compact every half hour or so to make sure I didn't manage to sweat everything off. Those constant "Is my makeup still on?!" moments are over. What a relief it is going to be able to actually have fun this Spring/Summer without worrying if my makeup is still in place! I love that Urban Decay's All Nighter setting spray keeps makeup from melting in the heat, and dehydrating in the cold! The Midwest has severe weather conditions (Spring/Summers are very humid and Fall/Winters are very cold), but I haven't had to worry about it since I found this amazing setting spray. Celebrity makeup artist Kandee Johnson also mentioned this setting spray awhile back, and that peaked my curiosity. Even my mom loves All Nighter setting spray!

I have worn this setting spray for an impressive number of hours without my makeup looking less than fresh! I once fell asleep in my makeup (total makeup no-no!) because it was late and I was too tired to wash my face and when I woke up, my makeup was still completely in place. I could not believe my eyes. It was INCREDIBLE. After admiring the staying power of All Nighter setting spray, I washed my face with my Clarisonic skincare brush and used a good moisturizer to pamper my skin for having makeup on it overnight! ;P I do not recommend or suggest that anybody does the same of sleeping in their makeup (haha) but I thought the story was relevant in sharing just how awesome this setting spray really is!

Urban Decay also has a nice selection of other setting sprays: Dew Me (moisturizing makeup setting spray), De-Slick (oil control setting spray), and Guardian Angel (moisturizing spray with 24 hour time release technology)! There is an Urban Decay setting spray for everybody, which is why Urban Decay remains one of my favorite brands.

So how can you get your own Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray?
Urban Decay, we have another winner. A+ + + + + + +
