I am a die hard fan of Skindinavia Dance! It works miracles (see my review). Its $19 for a 2 oz bottle and $29 for a 4 oz bottle and I have to order it on line. (I'm on my 3rd bottle).
As I was wandering thru Ulta, I saw a display at the checkout counter of 3 different Urban Decay mu setting type sprays. I wasn't interested until my eye caught the writing on the bottle "made by skindinavia" hmmm - a 4 oz bottle for $29 = same price as what I'm paying online, but w/out the wait or shipping charges.
I purchased a bottle and sprayed it on the next a.m. instead of my usual Dance!. Performs just like Dance!. The ingredients are identical except for like the 3rd and 4th from last ingredients are switched around (or was it 4th and 5th) Anyway, not enuf of a change to make a difference in the performance.
So - now I can get my wonder product at Ulta (and use the occasional 20% coupon) instead of ordering online - SCORE!!
Okay, so I bought this product because for a while I suffered getting spots of shininess on my face, which isnt attractive throughout the school day, taking pictures, dinners, etc. ESPECIALLY in my T-Zone. So I therefore decided that I would purchase this setting spray, because it stated it controlled shine.
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT. This setting spray is a must have in your makeup collection. It definetely controls shine for 16 hours like it says. It also does an excellent job of keeping your makeup on all day. It also clears up any powdery-ness or cakeyness if you overdid your powder.(We all make that mistake sometimes (=) So overall,I reccomend this to anyone with any skin type. It is an EXCELLENT PRODUCT.
I loved this product very much; but, unfortunately it broke my out. It helped keep my makeup in place after working out, napping, and even face down in a head rest during a massage. It also made me look less powdery/cakey and more natural.
sometimes i read that products break people out but there have been many times that it did not happen to me despite the reviews. This was not one of them. after 1 week of use i had 9 new pimples. i have been successfully treating my acne for about a year now, so breaking out is not a frequent occurance for me anymore. i was pretty upset and for that reason i returned this and will never touch it again.
i am trying the sephora flash spray next.
I can't believe there are negative reviews of this product!!! I LOVE IT! I sampled it at Sephora right before an all day/all night party event. Even after drinking and running around town all day...my makeup stayed put!! So I bought my own bottle right before a trip to Miami in mid June. In spite of late nights, heat, incredibly humid weather, drinking, dancing, my make up stayed fresh looking for such a long time!! I have had no issues with breakouts, but my skin is only fairly sensitive. I suggest atleast trying it if you haven't.
I can't say enough GOOD things about Urban Decay All Nighter...it's beyond amazing and keeps my foundation on all day without streaking. I love this stuff and I recommend that every makeup guru try it at least once ! You won't regret it ! :)
I was excited about this stuff it because it worked so well but unfortunately, after several trial and error experiments, I realized this is what was breaking me out. The day after I used it I would always break out in little bumps, boo:(
UPDATE: I figured out a way for this to work for me, at least for my eye makeup. I use UD eyelid primer, followed by BB eyeliner gel, UD eye shadow and Blinc mascara. These 4 together have great staying power by themselves but then I spray UD All Nighter on a makeup brush and dab it over my entire eye area, and voila! my eye makeup doesn't budge, even through the hot, humid weather, napping, and even, eh hem...bedroom activity. As long as I don't apply it to the rest of my face I won't break out yay:)
Had high hopes for this setting spray. I have normal / dry skin which is not acne prone. Had currently been using MAC's Fix + Spray which is wonderful, but was intrigued by UD's spray so I gave it a go.
I noticed my makeup was "set" for the day, it felt light...no sticky or tackiness...BUT, it broke me out :( After a week of using this daily, I had 3 cystic blemishes that were red and uncomfortable. I rarely ever breakout from a product, as well as I hadn't added anything new to my m/u regime except for this spray.
Needless to say, I stopped using it and I am back to MAC's. Oh well, $30 a bottle, maybe it did me a favor? lol!
Will not repurchase.
WOW! I applied it around noon and went to a wedding ceremony. At the wedding reception I went to the bathroom to check my face around 8pm, my makeup looked fresh and I looked well rested despite all the drinks I had. How is that even possible? Magic in a bottle! All I had to reapply was my gloss because I was eating so much food. I recommend it to everyone.
I've never used a setting spray before but this stuff is amazing! I use three sprays, one on each cheek and one on my forehead. At the end of the night, I look like I just got done putting my makeup on! I don't have very oily skin. On the contrary, it's slightly dry. However, I work as a server at a steakhouse and the grease and cooking oils in the kitchen do horrible, awful things to my makeup. But not with this stuff! It's my little miracle in a bottle :)
I bought the trial size from Ulta just to see if I liked it, and it now has a permanent home in my travel bag! The larger size i got for 20% off on a Sephora black friday sale, but I will still definitely repurchase at full price!
