Hello + welcome back to my blog, 

Today's post is going to be a battle of the setting sprays! Since discovering the magic of setting sprays, I have been on a quest to find the best one. But before we get into it, let me just briefly explain what setting spray does. Setting sprays help your make up stay in tack all day. Back in the day, before these guys were even a thing, people (including myself) would use hairspray to do the trick but we thank God those days are over. Anyway enough definitions now onto the review ... 


So first off we have the NYX Matte finish setting spray (it is also available in a dewy finish). 

Price: £7

So the description says it is "For that fresh make up look that lasts NYX Professional Makeup Makeup Setting Sprays are lightweight and comfortable while working hard to make sure your makeup stays put."


PROS: I really do like this spray, it's super light weight and it really does make your dewy foundation dry Matte. It also has makes my skin feel hydrated, weird right? But it really does. It's super affordable and easy to get your hands on. 

CONS: It doesn't really have the long lasting effect, it doesn't last the whole day. It lasted about 4 hours until I started to notice that I needed to powder my face again.

Overall rating: 6.5/10


Price: £23.50

What Urban Decay say about the spray " ... weightless spray to give your makeup serious staying power. All Nighter Setting Spray keeps makeup looking gorgeous for up to 16 hours — without melting, fading or settling into fine lines."


PROS: It does what it says! It last you all night and day! I have to say it is so good. It literally locks your makeup into place. Urban decay did not come to play! I have to say I am all the way here for this product! Yes Yes and Yes! 

CONS: the price is a little steep, but you can expect that for a high end product. The initial smell when you spray it is a bit vodka like but it does fade away almost instantly. 

Overall rating: 9.5/10 

So there you have it guys, my review on the setting sprays! I hope you found this useful! 

Until next time!

  1. That is soooo funny. I just told my husband about 5 minutes ago that I need to purchase a new setting spray. I actually used NYX before, but I'd rather pay a little extra for Urban Decay because it is an effective product!

  2. I've tried the Urban Decay "Chill" setting spray but I've never tried the "All-Nighter". I have dry skin, do you think it would still work for me?
