Setting Sprays 101 - Urban Decay All Nighter VS Bridal Skindinavia


Hi, dolls!
This is part three of my 101 series focusing on baking, setting sprays and contouring. Today, we are focusing on setting sprays and comparing two of my favourite sprays - All Nighter by Urban Decay and Bridal setting spray by Skindinavia. If you're interested to learn more, let's get right into it!

Other parts of the 101 series:

There are many sprays out there but only a few are really good at setting your make-up. The best setting sprays will always have alcohol listed as their first or second ingredient after or before aqua/water. Alcohol in setting sprays helps to keep your make-up in place for a very long time, making your face feel tight after spraying but this feeling only indicates the spray is doing its job at setting your face properly. Avoid using setting sprays with alcohol too close to your eyes because eyes can be very sensitive to it, so always make sure to have your eyes closed or covered before using a setting spray. 

There are some of the recommendations for picking the right setting spray based on your skin type, however, there are many more options out there if you do not particularly find any of the brands mentioned below appealing. 

- All Nigher & Bridal Skindinavia for all skin types
- NYX Dewy Finish & ABH Dewy Set for dry skin
- De-Slick Oil Control & Huda Beauty Resting Boss Face for oily skin

£24/$32

I have been using All Nighter setting spray for 3 years now and I love how good it sets my makeup. This spray has been developed in an exclusive partnership with Skindinavia and it's known as the best setting sprays out there. It's advertised to keep your makeup in place for around 16 hours. It comes in two sizes - 118ml and travel size 30ml. It's suitable for all skin types and it's 100% cruelty-free.

I wasn't aware of this brand until I've realised All Nighter is created in collaboration with Skindinavia. I've done my research on Skindinavia's products and realised it has really good reviews and opinions. I decided to buy the Bridal spray and OMG! It's the best setting spray I've ever used. I know All Nighter is amazing but the Bridal setting spray is just on another level. It holds my makeup in place for much longer than All Nighter and makes my face look flawless for the entire day. Seeing as they are the same price, I definitely recommend you to get Skindinavia's setting spray and see the results for yourself. The Bridal makeup setting spray comes in two sizes - 118ml and 236ml and it's suitable for all skin types. It's also cruelty-free and paraben-free. 

Before doing this review, I've done a little poll on my twitter (@oliviaandbeauty) to see what you guys think will work better. 92% of people voted for All-Nighter!



Final Thoughts
Both setting sprays are great and seeing as their prices are similar, you really can't go wrong with either of them. However, after trying the Bridal spray, I'm ready to leave my All Nighter. The Bridal setting spray has more lasting power and sets my face for way longer than UD and seeing as they cost the same amount, I don't really see the need to buy All Nighter anymore. I truly recommend everyone to check out Skindinavia and their range of setting and prime sprays because they are great!

Let me know in the comment what are your favourite setting sprays, and which one of the two you would like to try the most!

  3. I've been using Urban Decay's All Nighter Setting Spray for several years, as well. Who knew Skindinavia was the original? I may need to check it out the next time I need to setting spray. Also it's slightly cheaper (US), so that's always a plus! Thanks for doing this comparison! I look forward to reading more like this on your blog!

  4. The end was kinda surprising!
    Once i did my makeup at 5 am (using my normal bb cream and setting powder and...) and set it all with the UD spray.
    We went hiking and it was hella hot, lots of sweating, i even jumped in the water and guess what? Even after jumping in water ALL of my makeup was still there! Nothing smudged or vanished! My bb cream stayed on for a good 16-17 hours!

  14. Hi, what's the difference between the price of each Setting Sprays URBAN DECAY ALL NIGHTER VS BRIDAL SKINDINAVIA? Is price matters to you? Love to know

    ReplyDelete
  15. I think I'm the only one who hasn't tried the UD spray lol. I hear it's worth it but the price makes me cringe. I've been using the NYX and it does a pretty good job

  16. I tested Skindinavia when I visited a local MUA to do my wedding make-up (i was a brides maid) and it held my make-up in place for the whole night
