Urban Decay Setting Spray vs. L'oreal

When setting sprays first came out I thought they were silly. A mist you spray on top of your makeup to help everything stay fresher and last longer? Are we talking witchcraft here? Yet as the noise died down around them I felt the urge to see exactly what these babies were about. 

The first one I purchased (and spoiler, my favorite) was on a whim in Sephora one day a few months back. That pesky stand right at the checkout called my name and I popped the Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray in my bin without a second thought. And boy am I happy that I did. This setting spray noticeably transforms my makeup from looking alright to looking amazing. It blends out lines, seems to almost blur the makeup, and gives me that dewy look I always crave. Plus it's oh so refreshing to have a cool mist in the morning. 

In an effort to find a dupe and because I'm an addict and can't just be happy with a product I love, I picked up the L'Oréal Infallible Pro Spray & Set to see how it compared. I must say it's good, but not on the same level as Urban Decay's. I find this one to be a bit more watery feeling, lighter, and not as good at giving that flawless glow. It's a great product and if I would have tried it first I probably would like it more, but Urban Decay ticked every box before L'Oréal even had a shot. 

If you're looking for a lot of product and something affordable, L'Oréal's offering will be good enough, but I recommend the Urban Decay one more. There's just something about it that makes it just better.

Although I know I shouldn't ask and just be happy with the Urban Decay spray, are there any setting sprays I should try out that rival it? 

xoxo Kayla

  1. I'm running out of my UD setting spray. I only ever use it on 'relevant' days. I'm looking for a replacement since UD's not available in the UK... I might give the L'oreal one a go, even though it's not as good... Hm.

  2. I LOVE the UD All-Nighter spray! It's my go-to! I haven't tried any of the other sprays, but I've heard the UD De-Slicker (I can't remember if that's the exact name) is good and I heard the Victoria's Secret (random) one is good too!!
