Does Skindinavia make Urban Decay’s All Nighter setting spray?

Skindinavia has had a long-standing product development partnership with Skindinavia. That is the key reason that you’ll see our name on the side of the bottle. Each brand has its own custom, proprietary formulas.

Questions About Product Use

Is it normal to see particles floating in my Skindinavia bottle?

The solid particles seen are completely normal and expected in this formula. Most importantly, your Makeup Finishing Spray is 100% safe. The particles seen are a combination of two ingredients that provide the cooling and matte properties respectively, both of which are important for the makeup setting properties of your spray. The super-fine particles will never fully dissolve but rather be dispersed throughout the product. This is why there are very specific instructions for “Shake Well Before Use’ on yours. Shaking/agitating the product allows these powders to disperse throughout the liquid finishing spray for even application on the skin. We know the off-white color can look concerning, but we promise … your Skindinavia Makeup Finishing Spray is safe and ready to work its magic!

Why would I use a makeup remover spray?

Traditionally, makeup remover wipes have been the only solution. They are wasteful and require a lot of friction against the surface to scrub off the makeup. Instead, Skindinavia has created a spray that breaks down the makeup before you wipe it off to greatly reduce the amount of friction needed to remove your makeup. Our spray can be used with reusable cotton pads or washcloths.

Setting Spray Questions

Is finishing spray the same thing as setting spray?

The short answer is no. Any liquid can set makeup for a short period. Even spraying a light mist of water will fuse makeup layers together so that makeup looks blended. But what good is that if your makeup runs, cracks and smudges? What a sad ending to the day!

Skindinavia’s patented cooling technology is fueled by thousands of tiny encapsulated fluid-filled microspheres of all different sizes. These tiny bubbles continually burst and are time-released to dispense different amounts of the active ingredients over a 16-hour period. The continual release draws heat away from the skin and absorbs excess oil, keeping the temperature of the skin cool, smooth, and hydrated … all while keeping your color more vibrant and your makeup in place for up to 16 hours!

How do makeup setting sprays work?

Historically, makeup setting sprays have worked by essentially sealing your face. This, however, only helps makeup stay in place for a few hours at a time. To create a long-lasting setting spray, Skindinavia patented a cooling technology (that we do extend to a few product development partners) that keeps the makeup surface from becoming too hot and melting makeup. Our cooling technology also has a built-in time-release formula that keeps that cooling protection viable for 12, 14, and even 16+ hours.

Do you NEED a makeup setting spray?

If your makeup doesn’t look as good as the end of the day as it does at the beginning of the day, you could benefit from the use of a makeup setting spray. Makeup degrades, often, due to three factors: heat, excessive oil, and/or excessive dryness. All of our setting sprays (aka finishing sprays) combat the heat but our specific formulas are crafted to either deal with excessive oil or dryness.

How was Skindinavia’s Finishing Spray invented?

The Makeup Finishing Spray, often referred to as the Skindinavia setting spray, was invented by Allen Goldman in 2007 when he matched up a chemical formula that can safely cool the surface of the skin with the needs of a woman who he’d met later in Miami whose makeup had been literally melting off of her face. From there, he connected the need for a cooling technology with the cooling formula from earlier in the year to create the world’s first and only patented cooling-based setting spray formula.
