When Urban Decay revealed they were launching this powder, it was directly one of the things I wanted to try out. I’m literally in love with their setting sprays so I had high expectations when I bought this powder.
As I said, their setting sprays are a huge hit for me. I’ve been using them for at least 1,5 years now and I can’t imagine my life without the setting spray. This setting powder had me excited from the moment it was announced. It wasn’t available in my country yet when I left for NYC and that’s why I decided to already give this powder a go when I was in the Sephora. I didn’t see the powder in stores in the Netherlands so it might be coming a little later or it won’t come at all. Well at least, I have it right now and I have been using the powder for a couple of weeks now.
This is how the setting powder looks! It kinda looks dark in this picture but it’s translucent so any skin color can use this product. Let’s have a look at what Urban Decay promises us:
What it is:
A weightless setting powder that makes any foundation totally waterproof, for a mattified complexion that lasts all day, no matter what.
What it does:
Urban Decay’s All Nighter Waterproof Setting Powder is like a magic wand in your makeup bag. This high-tech formula blurs the look of pores and imperfections and blocks shine without dulling your inner glow. Your personal luminosity shows through while the powder keeps moisture out.
No one should have to sacrifice a good look for fear of makeup meltdown. Cry, sweat, get wet—your makeup will stay waterproof and flawless for up to 11 hours. Your makeup will last through anything, so no need to worry about it—just live your life. Simply buff the powder over your foundation for long-lasting, locked-in coverage. Then, finish up with your blush and highlighter routine.
This feather-light formula is completely translucent, so it works on a wide range of skin tones and with any foundation. All Nighter Waterproof Setting Powder smooths the appearance of skin, adds luminosity and extends the life of foundation, so there’s no need to reapply it, even in hot climates.
I can’t really tell if it is really waterproof, I mean I don’t think I can swim with this right? But I’m not sure so I might test that out in the future. I can admit this products works though! My makeup stays on perfect all day and I don’t have to reapply. It mattifies my skin and I’m not glowing later on the day so that awesome. I feel like this powder makes my skin look like I have a Snapchat filter over my face, you know that’s a good thing ;). The setting powder replaced my favorite powder from MAC which I had been using for years.
I’m using this powder over my foundation or if I don’t wear foundation, to set my concealer and to have a nice base for my other makeup. I still use the setting spray to set everything when I’m done doing my makeup.
