Versus: Urban Decay All Nighter vs Urban Decay Deslick

*Purchased, Affiliate Links


I hope everyone has been having an awesome month. It’s crazy to think that June is already half over. Whaaaa! Time flies. I’ve been lacking a bit of inspiration lately, so what better place to look than at the CBB‘s Brand of the Month. For the month of June, the brand is Urban Decay. I love the brand and think that it produces great products. I was trying to think of an original post idea and the inspiration for Versus came about. During my Versus series, I’ll pit one product against another and see which one I like more. I’ve been thinking of doing this for dry shampoo and eye makeup remover! Hopefully in the future.

Anyways, I know when I first started to get into setting sprays, Urban Decay’s All Nighter was definitely at the top of my list. Everyone raved about it non stop so I had to pick it up. When I was first looking at the display, I really wasn’t sure about the difference between De-Slick and All Nighter. If I was wondering, maybe some of you are wondering too! So lets get down to the comparison…

Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray

As mentioned in the intro, this is the first setting spray I had tried. I didn’t really know what to expect. Here is the description of the product from the Urban Decay website:

Is makeup meltdown ruining your midnight mojo? Mist on this weightless spray to give your makeup serious staying power. All Nighter keeps your makeup looking gorgeously just-applied for up to 16 hours – without melting, cracking, fading or settling into fine lines.
Using this, it definitely had a nice and lightweight feeling. I would say that this does help my makeup last longer than if I hadn’t used it, but it’s definitely not a holy grail product. If I were to not use it one day, it wouldn’t be disastrous. I feel like I almost use this setting spray out of habit. It feels pretty nice on the skin so why not?

Urban Decay De-Slick Oil Control Makeup Setting Spray

After trying out All Nighter for a bit, I decided to try De-Slick. I was hesitant to try this one just because I thought it might settle into fine lines, or cling to dry areas. Here is the description from the Urban Decay website:

Oily skin has met its match! Mist on this weightless spray to control oil, deflect surface shine and help makeup stay put. Meet your most powerful oil-control ally. De-Slick mists on weightlessly to control oil, deflect surface shine and keep skin looking beautifully matte. High-tech ingredients help keep foundation, shadow and blush from smudging, sliding or fading – so you hardly ever need to touch up.

The formula is definitely different than the All Nighter. I find it a bit stickier and tackier, which doesn’t bother me at all. On the contrary, I like the feeling just because I feel like the spray is actually doing something instead of just making my face feel nice.


I would 100% choose the De-Slick over All Nighter. Keep in mind that my skin is oily-combination. I have had a terrible time trying to control oil in my t-zone and De-Slick actually showed a noticeable difference. I never touch up throughout the day and my makeup isn’t being eaten away by the oil. I definitely wouldn’t say that my skin looks matte, but I’m not super duper oily like I usually am. The De-Slick doesn’t settle into any lines and keeps my makeup looking fresh throughout the day. All Nighter feels nice on the skin, but after trying De-Slick, I won’t be going back.

Urban Decay also has another setting spray, Chill, but I’ve never tried it so I cannot offer my opinion.

Have you tried any of the Urban Decay Setting Sprays? Another other setting spray I should check out for oily skin?

Thanks for reading and I hope you have a great day!

  • I'd totes love to see a 'versus' for dry shampoos, since I'm a total dry shamp hoarder!
    I have UD's "All Nighter" and I honestly don't care for it–I don't notice a difference between when I use it and don't, so De-Slick might be up my alley! MY T-ZONE AND CHEEKS CAN GET SUPER GROSS TOO–it's so bad that I generally carry around tissues in my pocket to wipe those areas during the day ._.''
    But anyways, I ended up using "All Nighter" to foil my eyeshadows. Makes them look super metallic and I love it 😀

  • Oiliness is the worse! I suffer from oily nose when I use any tinted products on my nose. I tried Chill before but it didn't work out for me as well as I hoped so I gave it away, I'm using a spray from L'Oreal and it works super well!

  • I use UD's 'All Nighter' but have not tried 'De-Slick, from your review I think that one is next up though! I have recently turned really oily on my nose so it sounds like it may be a good one to try

  • I really need to try a setting spray! My makeup almost always seems to melt and smudge. I hope it helps with preventing raccoon eyes 😛

  • Agreed! All Nighter every time! Hands down!

  • Thank you Kayla! Fair enough, I always like to try new things so maybe there is a setting spray out there!

  • Yesss! Me too! I have 3 in my arsenal right now. I'd like to buy the colab one to try out.
    I would definitely give De-Slick a try. It honestly has changed my makeup so much, which is surprising. Honestly, my nose doe. It's cray.
    OMG! Genius. I want to try that out! Sounds like such a cool idea to foil your own eyeshadows!.

  • Ohhh. Yeah I know Chill is marketed as 'hydrating' so it didn't call out to me like De-Slick. Cool! I'd like to try that one then! 🙂

  • Honestly, I would totally give it a try. I'm so so oily, so the fact that it actually worked was a wonder. If you try it, let me know how it works out! 😀

  • YES. Try it. I've also tried a MUFE one but it wasn't as good as either of the UD ones I've tried. These smaller sizes are more affordable too which I liked for trying out.

  • 😀

  • I actually had no idea what the difference was and was honestly wondering the other day whilst spraying All Nighter all over my face, haha. I haven't tried DeSlick, but I do have relatively dry skin so I think I'm probably good to stick with All Nighter 🙂

  • Darn I wish I had read the reviews about UD setting sprays before I went and bought the MAC one!

  • I haven't tried any of UD's setting sprays (I'm angry at them since they won't offer working artists in Canada a discount -LOL) so I can't comment but I know they're pretty well loved. I actually bought a fixer from Skindinavia (at the recommendation of Wayne Goss because I love him) and it's so amazeballs. I wish you could compare them because I've always wondered if they're basically the same!

  • I know there is also Chill from Urban Decay and it's marketed as a 'moisturizing' setting spray! Maybe that one would be a good option!

  • How is the MAC one? That's one I've been curious about but never bought.

  • It's funny actually because all of the UD ones (to my knowledge) are actually made by Skindinavia! It's 'Urban Decay by Skindinavia'. I'd definitely be curious to see what the difference would be though! 😮

  • I like this "Versus" series you have! I've always wondered about the difference with UD setting sprays. I have dry skin so I don't worry about controlling oil so much, I actually really like spraying my face with evian water haha.

    Looking forward to seeing your Finish 5 by Fall! I'll be posting mine tomorrow!

  • Thanks so much Angela! So happy to have found your blog! 😀

    One that might work for you is the UD Chill setting spray. That's supposed to be for dry skin! I've seen the Evian spray at Sephora and been so curious! It sounds super refreshing!

    Thanks again for opening it up to everyone! Very excited to try it just because I've never done something like this before! 😀 Can't wait to see your post. 🙂

  • I have heard it's supposed to be good, but haven't had a chance yet to try it out. Will have to try when I get my engagement photos done 😉

  • Ah great! Congrats on your engagement! 😀
