Setting Sprays: L’Oreal vs. Urban Decay

Setting Sprays: L’Oreal vs. Urban Decay

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 InfallibleΒ 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.

If you’d like to snag the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray, you can find it on their website here. To try out the less expensive dupe, L’Oreal’s Infallible, you can check out Amazon here.

  1. Unfortunately we don’t have either of them here in Croatia. 😞 I can get the UD online wiith free shipping though, but the L’OrΓ©al is a better choice/price. I hope that will stock the Loreal one, so I can try it out. πŸ˜€

  2. Thank you for this post! I really love the UD setting spray, but always hesitate on repurchasing because of the is just a setting spray after all haha. I have been meaning to pick up the L’Oreal one to try, and your post just sealed the deal for me! I’ll have to remember to grab it next time i’m at the store.

  3. Ooh, didn’t know that was a dupe! I just received the Urban Decay one, and it’s quickly earning its spot as a staple in my makeup closet.

    Although I wish e.l.f.’s setting spray worked better–it’s incredibly cheap but ineffective for me, haha.
