Dupe War #5 – Setting Spray

26 Apr

Do you want your makeup to last longer and to not rub off onto the clothes of people you hug?

We have the solution for you!

Make-up setting Spray!  “What is it?” you ask.  It’s like hairspray for your face!!!!  (well, sort of.  It’s totally not sticky and gross or anything.)  It also doubles as a nice refreshing mist for after workouts or hot days.  Seriously, before using a setting spray I ruined by boyfriends h&m “cool dude” blazers by hugging him and leaving behind a face ghost.  Let me tell you face ghosts aren’t scary, they are just gross.

According to Sephora, as the final step to your makeup routine, this weightless, super-fine mist is formulated with Urban Decay’s patent-pending Temperature Control Technology, which lowers the temperature of your makeup to hold foundation, eye shadow, blush, and concealer in place. Makeup looks picture-perfect all day long through wind, heat, and cold. All Nighter works expertly on all skin types and prevents loss of color, melting, sliding, caking, cracking, excess shininess, fading blush, eye shadow, and lip color disappearance. It’s also formulated to resist moisture, so you can fearlessly sweat, cry, or get your Jacuzzi on—you’re guaranteed makeup that always looks just-applied, without ever feeling sticky or tight. Backed by years of science, it’s unlike any other product available and keeps you looking flawless with just a couple sprays over your makeup.
