Urban Decay All Nighter Face Primer – Longwear Foundation Grip

Urban Decay are known for their fantastic range of setting sprays, with the All Nighter Setting Spray being one of the bestselling setting sprays full stop. Urban Decay have a number of different shades of their Primer Potion Eyeshadow Primer, and they’ve dabbled with face primers in the past too.

Until very recently, they had no face primers at all as they’d discontinued them but they’re back with the Urban Decay All Nighter Face Primer.

The Urban Decay All Nighter Face Primer is £26, contains 30ml of product and is packaged within a matte black squeezy tube with purple foiled writing.

The tube comes with a pump dispenser which is an improvement to their old face primers, which used to have narrow nozzles. The pump offers a more controlled dispensing of the product, and the primer is white in colour with a cream-like consistency.

Urban Decay All Nighter Face Primer

The Urban Decay All Nighter Face Primer is a long wearing complexion primer, designed to boost your foundation’s staying power, to keep it looking its best for upto 8 hours.

It’s the newest addition within the All Nighter collection, and goes onto the skin sheer and lightweight, which makes it easy to wear alone or under your foundation. It will gelp to prep your skin, giving it a lifted appearance, as well as a hit of hydration, a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, and also the appearance of pores.


  •  Smooth over clean, moisturized skin with fingertips or foundation brush and evenly blend from the centre of the face in an outward motion.
  • Wear it alone or with just concealer or blush for smoother, beautiful skin.

Urban Decay All Nighter Face Primer - Longwear Foundation Grip

The Urban Decay All Nighter Face Primer has a slightly vague description, in that it only really claims to offer 8 hours of wear time for your makeup as well as hydrating. It doesn’t make any claims about pore perfecting or blurring, not does it combat shine or minimise imperfections.

I feel like there’s a lot of face primers on the market right now, and this launch feels a little lacklustre. If you don’t need any skin smoothing or blurring, and have perfect skin, then maybe this primer will be great for you. I just would rather splurge on a primer that will extend the wear time of my makeup, add hydration but also have some skin perfecting properties too.
