I have been meaning to upload this post for the longest time now, but truth be told, I am a little bit of a procrastinator. You may already know that if you have read a post of mine and I promised another one to be uploaded and it’s not. Yepp, that’s me! LOL
I really wanted this post to be uploaded for a bit now because I have used both bottles up from both brands and I have a fairly good idea of how they work. The moment that changed my mind about these Setting Sprays was when I was in Chicago and the humidity was INSANE! I sweat so easily and my face was just melting. My hair was a frizzy mess and my clothes were just sticking to me. It was not a fun experience, but my makeup held up and that is thanks to one amazing setting spray!
Keep reading and I will do a full review on both setting sprays!
So as I mentioned above, my review of these setting sprays was done on vacation in Chicago. It wasn’t something I was planning on doing, but the timing was perfect! Unfortunately, no photos were taken, so you’re gonna have to trust me on this review 🙂
I am comparing Urban Decay’s All-Nighter Setting Spray and L’Oreal’s Infallible Setting Spray. Obviously, Urban Decay is a high-end brand that has raved about setting sprays. Before I found Urban Decay, I didn’t use a setting spray, so this was brand new territory. This brand has 2 other sprays, but I find that the All-Nighter is my go-to and my favourite out of the bunch. All 3 of the setting sprays from Urban Decay are made with Skindinavia, which are known for their setting sprays. They are considered to be the best of the best! With L’Oreal, this is one of the first drugstore setting sprays that I have ever tried. I haven’t really noticed too many other options, besides the ones by NYX. The setting spray from L’Oreal is a part of their Infallible line. I wanted to see if there was a cheaper alternative to the high-end brand.
This setting spray is pricey, but it works. I always have a hard time spending money on makeup products, but when they work, I figured I am getting my money’s worth. This setting spray comes in at $36 CAD. I love the All-Nighter as it is meant to keep your makeup in place for a good 16 hours and no sweat, tears or water should tear your makeup apart. As I said, I have oily skin, so keeping my makeup looking flawless can be a problem on most days.
The setting spray comes in a 4 oz full-size bottle or you can purchase a smaller bottle for $15 and it contains 1 oz. It comes in a white bottle with a purple cap that is in the form of a standard spray bottle. It is very easy to apply the setting spray, as I spray in an “X” formation guaranteeing it will hit all of the spots on my face. I find the spray is a bit harsher than the Infallible. It almost seems hard to get the spray out, but that is really my only complaint. It feels almost tacky once applied, but after it has dried up, my face is so smooth that it doesn’t even feel like I am wearing makeup. It seems likes it has a layer of protection over my makeup if that makes sense.
This is a first for L’Oreal. It is one of the newer products from the Infallible line and I immediately thought, omg this is a cheaper version of UD’s! This product is a full-size 3.4 oz bottle that goes for $15-20 CAD, depending on where you buy it. The product is a black matte bottle with the same standard spray bottle, as the All-Nighter. I really love how easy it was to apply the mist to my face. It didn’t seem as forced like the All-Nighter, but it did provide the tackiness once applied. However, once it was dried, my face was smooth just like Urban Decay’s.
I really like how long the product lasted me. Both brands have great sprays that allow you to get your full money’s worth. I believe I had both sprays for a good 4-5 months. I really loved how both sprays made my makeup look after I sprayed it on. I found Infallible provided a more dewy look to my finished makeup where All-Nighter provided a matte finish and I could truly see how everything was set on my face.
…What’s The Difference?
The main difference between these 2 sprays is the longevity. Infallible is great for wearing to work or to school.I noticed after an 8 hour day, my face would feel oily and I could see where the makeup was breaking apart. It didn’t look smooth anymore and after I had finished at the gym, my makeup was either completely faded or starting to melt off. If you need to keep your makeup in place for a short period of time and you aren’t doing anything strenuous, then use Infallible.
If you are looking for a spray that lasts all day while you are working, at the gym or if you are headed out for a girl’s night, use All-Nighter. This spray was a life saver for me in Chicago! Yes, my hair was a mess, but my makeup was flawless. I had a dewy look to my face for obvious reasons, but no one of my makeup smudged or faded away. Up until that point, I was really leaning towards Infallible, but All-Nighter came out on top and showed me why it is the best!
Both setting sprays are great for what you need them for. If you are looking for something cheaper, go for the Infallible, but if you want the best product out there, spend the extra $15 and purchase the All-Nighter.
I hope this was helpful to anyone looking for a good setting spray!
