There’s no questioning that Urban Decay’s All Nighter Setting Spray is one of the top dogs. I used it for my wedding a few years ago and my makeup didn’t budge from about 10am to well past midnight–an amazing feat with my oily skin.
But with my wallet’s recent depression, I needed a cheaper alternative to UD’s miracle potion. I had seen reviews online that L’Oreal’s Infallible was a good dupe for the UD spray and at only about $15 I couldn’t resist giving it a go myself.
For one, the ingredients list is almost identical, with the main difference being the amounts of some ingredients. They smell almost identical and they both are a milky white liquid.
With Urban Decay, I sprayed twice during the day for my wedding (I most specifically remember). I sprayed once after applying my base makeup and a second time after applying everything on my face (including eye makeup). I only required a little oil blotting and fresh powder during the course of the day, but no major fixes.
With L’Oreal, I usually just spray once in the morning once all of my makeup is done just before I go to work. Similarly to UD, I only need to blot some oil and freshen my powder through the course of the day. I do find that my eye makeup starts to smudge during my long work day, but I’ll blame if on the subpar eye primer I currently have and not the spray.
I feel like this one’s a tie.
Urban Decay’s All Nighter Setting Spray is superior in terms of formula, making up for any cheaper brand makeup I may be wearing, but L’Oreal’s Infallible isn’t far behind. Plus, with that low price tag, I feel like that brings L’Oreal up to a great value.
