Yes, using Urban Decay’s $29 All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray involves adding another step to my makeup routine, and no, it’s probably not as essential as under-eye concealer.
Buuut, that doesn’t make me like it any less.
If I were going on a big trip (say, lattes and macarons in Paris with RyGos, seeing as he’s on hiatus from acting) and accidentally forgot it at home, would I be crushed?
No, I think not.
Probably not. Okay maybe a little…
With the weather warming up and the days getting longer, I have been whipping out this makeup-saving spray mist more and more often. A few spritzes postpone fading and keep my makeup on my mug longer.
And it’s just so refreshing! — like standing in the mist beside a tropical waterfall…except without the mosquito swarms, frizzy hair and bikini muffin top, of course.
Stuff locks my look down all day long. Like, say it was the morning of the zombie apocalypse…
I’m just staying, for instance.
If it were that day, and I remembered to spray this on first thing in the morning, I’m confident that my foundation, powder, blush, eyeshadow and bronzer would still be going strong when the biters finally took me down that night. (Side note: last night’s Walking Dead? Merle?? Daryl? We need to talk.)
All Nighter has been out a while, but I only started using it last month when a makeup artist at Sephora spritzed it on my face after she finished doing a Valentine’s Day makeup look on me.
Ten hours later, I was shocked! My makeup still looked fresh, and I’ve been hooked ever since.
In the mornings right after I finish washing my face, I head downstairs to the kitchen and start brewing my coffee.
When I reach in the fridge for the vanilla almond milk, I also grab my chilled bottle of UD All Nighter (makes it that much more refreshing).
I close my eyes, hold my breath — because although it’s unscented, I don’t want to accidentally inhale it — and spray four spritzes in an “X” and “T” formation all over my face.
Then, back in the fridge it goes.
From that first sip of coffee in the morning till my last sip of Sleepytime tea at night, All Nighter’s on the job, keeping my makeup where it belongs.
If I had to come up with something about it I’d change, I don’t know, maybe the name? I might call it All Day-er instead, because the last time I pulled an all-nighter that wasn’t due to insomnia was roughly 10 years ago.
Hahaha! No, I am not always in bed by 9:30… Only once or twice a week.
