The battle of the setting sprays

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Hello online world! So, as an avid blog reader, beauty lover and food guzzler, I have finally decided to try my hand at blogging. Hopefully I'll be able to share some of my passion for beauty, fashion and food with a few of you out there, and maybe help a few of you out with a thing or two along the way. Now that my little introduction  is over - on to the post!

Today, i'm talking setting sprays. If you are new to the world of beauty, a setting spray is supposed to prolong the wear-time of your make up, and improve the all over finish of the skin - something we all strive for.

MAC Fix+ and Urban Decay's All Nighter are two of the most hyped setting sprays on the market, but  the real question is; do they really live up to their names? 

Lets start with the Fix+

Unfortunately, this didn't quite live up to my expectations. While it smells lovely, and mists out perrrrfectly, I didn't feel my make up lasted any longer than usual after applying it. Its not all bad though, Fix+ works great for upping the pigmentation of eye shadows and loose pigments, and thats exactly what I would reserve it for.

On the other hand, Urban Decay's All Nighter does quite the opposite. This one will keep your makeup from budging - believe me! I hardly go a day without spritzing this one on before and after doing my face as I love the way it works. I notice an all-over blurring effect after using this, as pores are minimised and the skin looks smoother.

While i'm pleased with both, I'd recommend going for All Nighter if you're looking for some serious make up setting action.

  1. Thanks for the review, I always wondered if the MAC fix+ was amazing as it sounds but the UD sounds ideal for setting makeup in place!

    1. I had always wondered about it too until I tried it! If I had to pick one it'd definitely be Urban Decays x

  2. I have 'Chill' by Urban decay, and I absolutely love it! It cools the surface of the makeup to lock it in all night :D Welcome to the blogging community by the way, i look forward to reading your future posts! X
