Dupes for Urban Decay's All Nighter Setting Spray
Based on 45,676 Influenster Reviews
We're all for investing in some of our favorite beauty brands, but sometimes your bank account just needs a break. As much as we'd love to stock up our beauty bag with a who's who of Sephora, it's simply not budget-friendly! Thankfully, the drugstore beauty aisle has a bevy of affordable alternatives to some of our favorite cult classic beauty products.
Although we love Urban Decay's Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray for its weightless, locked-and-loaded makeup setting abilities, at $32 a bottle, it's a splurge for any beauty buff. But after a little digging, we came across five drugstore setting sprays that Influensters swear by for a lasting look.
The best part? They're a fraction of the price of Urban Decay's mist. Read on to see our picks for dupes for Urban Decay's Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray.

NYX's spray has long been touted as a solid dupe for UD's mist. The $8 finishing spray delivers a weightless matte finish that locks foundation and eye makeup in place.
My only criticism is the actual spray nozzle. I find that this doesn't mist out as nicely or as finely as other setting sprays I've tried, and too much product comes out at once.
Note: I am not a truly oily person and I have combination/normal skin. I do like the matte look though, and I do feel that this accomplishes that. I don't know how this spray would fare on someone who has skin that is more on the oily side.
Overall, I definitely recommend this product as a cheaper alternative to high-end sprays and for everyday wear. ...read more
Milani's $10 version offers up to 16 hours of wear time. Plus it boasts priming, correcting, and setting benefits.
This non-clogging spray requires just a few spritzes to prevent complexion products from smudging or settling into fine lines.
To be fair, I don't know for sure that they just bottled the UD spray into the L'Oreal bottle, but the ingredients are super similar - in fact, they are almost the same, just the amount of each ingredient is slightly different. But what really matters to me is how well it works, and the L'Oreal spray is every bit as good as the UD spray.
I honestly couldn't tell a difference between the UD spray and the L'Oreal spray. They even smell similar (the UD "Chill" gets an extra point for smelling slightly better than the UD standard or L'Oreal version, likely due to the addition of aloe). I followed the directions (same directions as the UD spray, just sayin') and applied the L'Oreal spray in a T and X motion and then let it dry. My makeup stayed in place all day, no smudging or sliding or smearing at all. And, unlike setting powders, it made my face look dewey (not shiny) and fresh. I even find that I can go without a primer if I am using the spray, but if you are going somewhere sweaty or where you really want your makeup to last for hours and hours, a primer plus the spray will keep your makeup in place like a tattoo.
So, sorry Urban Decay. I love you to pieces, but why should I pay $30 for your spray when L'Oreal's Infallible spray is every bit as good and costs half the price? (However, note that the L'Oreal version is .6 of an ounce smaller than the Urban Decay, so still cheaper but not technically half the cost.) The only thing that will keep me returning to Sephora for the Urban Decay spray is the "Chill" version, since the L'Oreal spray only comes in the one version. If they are smart, they will expand the line, because setting spray is one of those things that I never knew I needed until I tried it and now I find that I can't live without it. ...read more

For only $5, Influnesters love how hydrating this drugstore spray is without a trace of grease, oil, or shine.
