Urban Decay Naked Cherry All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray ($15) is new, limited edition cherry scented makeup setting spray that launched with the Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette and Naked Cherry Collection earlier last month.
I’m a little tiny bit surprised Urban Decay didn’t go full on out with fragrancing the entire line like cherries but I guess they felt that was a little too Too Faced for them so the only item that’s scented is this little All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray.
But for Urban Decay Naked Cherry All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray has me asking the question, WHY?!
I’m ever so grateful to Urban Decay for sending me samples of the Naked Cherry Collection including this setting spray but there’s issues I have!
I don’t normally set my makeup with a spray because I feel like I’m ruining the look I created but I have to admit I have some love for All Nighter as it does do a mighty good job of extending the wear of foundation, depowdering, and refining the look of base and color products once it sets.
However, why they thought launching a small 1 oz size that’s supposed to be cherry scented is beyond me. I think if you fall in love with it you’d want a larger size not to mention you’ll probably hate that is limited edition if you do love it.
But don’t worry, there’s really no danger in that! But I digress, first let’s chat the rip off this is. At 1 oz it’s $15 where as a 4 oz bottle is $32. Really Urban Decay!? WHY?
Secondly, let’s chat scent. This smells nothing like cherry. If anything at all it smells like medicine with a very, very faint hint of bitter cherry as the back note. Again, WHY???? I get it! You don’t want to offend people with scented makeup and you feel like subtly scenting it is a good idea. However, don’t offer it at all if you think sensitive users won’t like it (which they won’t). And for god sake, if you do scent it, make damn sure it smells nice. This just smells awful.
The good news? At least it works as well as the original but all in all the price and scent make it a skip! Just stick to purchasing the original full-size and leave this for the clearance rack.
