This $10 E.l.f. Setting Spray Dupes All Your Spenny Faves



A lil’ birdie told us there’s a new drugstore dupe in town: e.l.f. Cosmetics’ Stay All Night Micro-Fine Setting Mist, $10. Naturally, we did some digging and found that it rivals TWO of the best setting sprays in the industry – Urban Decay’s All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray, $36, and Charlotte Tilbury’s Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray, $36 – at less than half the price. *Kaa-ching!* Let’s talk about why you should RUN to the drugstore to pick it up (hint: it. will. sell out.)

TikTok’s Viral Setting Spray: e.l.f. Cosmetics Stay All Night Micro-Fine Setting Mist, $10

What it is: A vegan, lightweight setting spray that locks your makeup for up to 16 hours. Enriched with cucumber fruit extract, aloe vera, and green tea leaf extract, the formula hydrates and soothes all skin types.

How it works: e.l.f. has three stand-out setting sprays in their collection, but this is the only one with a microfine mister, which means more seamless application and fewer sprays.

e.l.f.’s Stay All Night Mist Vs. Urban Decay’s All Nighter Setting Spray

The difference: No doubt you’ve heard/tried/LOVED Urban Decay’s legendary All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray, $36, but how does e.l.f. compare? Based on product deets, UD uses a patented Temperature Control Technology which locks your lewk in place by lowering the temperature of your makeup – science-y, we know. Thankfully, @rocio.roses tested the two for our benefit. No shade, but there was a clear winner.

e.l.f.’s Stay All Night Mist Vs. Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray

The difference: Charlotte Tilbury’s oil-free Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray, $36, has a pore-blurring effect for an #Airbrushed finish while e.l.f.’s leaves a dewy-esque finish. Both contain hydrating Japanese green tea and soothing aloe vera, which is probably why they smell diiiivine with fresh floral notes. @ysumaya says it’s a draw, and we believe her.

@ysumaya I truly loveee this setting spray and I won’t feel guilty after using a ton cuz it’s 10$! Some setting sprays I’ve been using recently smell like chemicals, so I’m glad that the smells really good and refreshing! ##elf##elfstayallnight##elfstayalldaysettingspray##charlottetilbury##dupe##makeup ♬ Escapism. – RAYE & 070 Shake

Our Thoughts

Why we’re obsessed: Living in the hot climate of Dubai, we go through setting sprays faster than most, so we’re not strangers to the “I’m out of setting spray” dilemma. That’s why you should trust us when we say this is one of THE most underrated setting spray formulas out there. Besides keeping our beat intact after a four-hour concert, she’s great for a quick midday misting if you need a pick-me-up in the office. In short: we’re obsessed with the smell, the formula, and the price tag.

The bottom line: It’s crystal clear that e.l.f. has – once again – proven that drugstore makeup formulas can rival spenny alternatives. This drugstore setting spray excelled at the smudge and wear-test trials against two cult-fave formulas, making it an official dupe! e.l.f., keep it coming.

No need to thank us, but here are three more dupes that prove why e.l.f. is the G.O.A.T.
