Battle of the Setting Sprays: MAC Fix+ vs Urban Decay All Nighter

I have been using makeup setting sprays regularly for about 3-4 months now. The two that I have been going back and forth with are the Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray and MAC Fix+. Both setting sprays are effective but when it comes time to repurchase, I definitely have a preference.

Features of the Urban Decay All Nighter:

  • Helps makeup last all day

  • Spray nozzle is concentrated, and sprays quickly and exactly where you want it to spray

  • Once sprayed, the product settles on the skin and doesn't get lost in the air

  • Fragrance free

Features of the MAC Fix + (Pictured is the rose fragranced version from A Rose Romance collection circa 2009):

  • Helps makeup last all day AND it gives skin a natural look, removing all cakiness

  • Feels refreshing on the skin, especially if you refrigerate it during the summer

  • The product is very misty and stays in the air for a few seconds before settling on the skin, but this also allows for more of a misty feel

  • Smells refreshing and clean (or fragranced if you get a fragranced version like the rose one I have)

  • Spray nozzle has a locking mechanism that comes in handy for travel

If you couldn't already guess, I much prefer the Fix+. I love how it feels on my skin and how it takes away the cakiness of foundation. Also, I think that the All Nighter makes foundation oxidize quicker, so whenever I use it I always feel like my foundation looks half a shade darker.

What do you think? Have you tried any setting sprays?


  1. I have never tried a setting spray but I have always heard good things about them, especially the MAC one. One of these days I'll get around to trying it out.

  2. Fix+ is pretty great! I never really used it because I thought it was just expensive water, but it does make a difference!
