If you’re a fan of the OG Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray, you probably rejoiced at the news that they were releasing another variation: the Urban Decay All Nighter Pollutant Protection Makeup Setting Spray. As you may have guessed from the name, this formula is the same as the setting spray you know and love with the added benefit of pollution protection thanks to skin-friendly minerals — like zinc, magnesium and copper. “Why is pollution so bad?,” you wonder. Well, it has been shown to introduce free radicals into the skin, which results in premature skin aging and hyperpigmentation.
That’s where the Urban Decay All Nighter Pollutant Protection Makeup Setting Spray comes in. This setting spray protects skin from everyday environmental damage while keeping your makeup in place for up to 16 hours. The staying power comes down to it’s innovative technology. As the spray sets into your skin, it actually lowers the temperature of the makeup which helps it to look freshly applied all day long.
According to Urban Decay Global Artist Steve Kassajikian, their new formula also “helps protect against oxidation due to pollution.” This added benefit alone is a gamechanger for beauty junkies everywhere. Lots of great formulas oxidize — meaning they dry down darker than they first appear on your skin — so this added benefit is reason enough to give it a try. We recommend this formula for anyone who is skincare-obsessed and loves to take that extra step to protect their skin. We think it’s a must have — what about you?
For best results, use this as the last step of your finished makeup look.
