Most Helpful Positive Review Great hold! Dry skin? Use thick moisturizer!
The UD All Nighter Face Primer is a great solution for preventing foundation from sliding down your face in hot, humid, or wet conditions.
If you have dry skin (like I do), you'll want to wear a thick moisturizer underneath. The primer did cause some dryness in my smile lines, but I did not take off a star because I'm sure it wouldn't happen if I used a thicker moisturizer underneath. The drying might also be a benefit for those with oily or combination skin! It applies very smoothly and does not "skip" and leave bare spots like some face primers do.
My skin looked very smooth all day and it also helps to fill uneven texture! I have sensitive skin and this product did not cause me to break out unlike some primers (looking at you, Smashbox).
I wear tested it with alcohol and oil-based setting sprays and with only setting powder and it performed well (8hr+ wear) in all conditions, a similar performance level to the cult-favorite All Nighter setting spray.
Overall, it's a great product, especially for weddings or outdoor events in humid weather! I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review.
Most Helpful Critical Review I will not use this ever again
I decided to try this for the first time for a wedding I was attending... what a mistake! At first I thought how bad can it be, I like the spray, I'll probably like this too. I really liked the pump and the fact that the product wasn't scented. It felt smooth and moisturizing which I did like, and my make up went on without a hitch. Application was the only pleasant part of this product. The only thing I changed from my normal make up routine was my primer, so I am certain that what followed was caused by this primer. After 2 hours in the car driving to the wedding, my skin was getting shiny, but no big deal. I blotted my skin and went on my merry way. Following the ceremony I noticed my make up was already breaking down after 3 hours... forgive me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that all night is longer than 3 hours. I didn't have time to do my face over, so we went to the reception and my face pretty much melted off before even hitting the dance floor. I also noticed bright red splotches under what was left of my make up. They were slightly raised and itchy. I figured I would wash my face at the end of the night and lather some moisturizer on. When I did wash my face, my skin was so incredibly red and itchy, and moisturizing was downright painful. That was yesterday. I have since come home and have started the process of healing my skin. It is bright and burning, and incredibly unpleasant. As I stated above, my primer was the only thing I changed from my entire routine. I don't know what in this product did this, nor do I know if I am the only person with this experience, but I do know I will not be using this product again.
Reviewed by 471 customers A+ the best primer around

I have combination skin that leans more toward oily. This is the only primer I've ever used that makes such a noticeable impact. Normally by the end of the day you can see where I tend to touch my face a lot and the makeup will have disappeared. When I use this primer, my makeup does not noticeably rub off in any spots (including when I go in public wearing a mask!) I love this primer. It's a little expensive so I don't use it every day but I really recommend it.
Only primer that works for me!
Panda from Boise, Idaho
I've tried MANY primers for my oily skin and this is the only one that doesn't feel like glue and actually works. I was amazed at how silky it felt and the great effect that it has had on my makeup. It now stays all day!
SMR from Wisconsin
I love it! My fine lines were nicely blurred and my fave felt tighter!
Set and forget

Not greasy like some and helps keep my makeup perfect

Brooke from Alabama
Worth the money. Trust me wear it with the setting spray. I have very oily and blemish skin. Covers everything last forever and doesn't break me out. Also controls oil every well. Don't look caked.
anonymous from Plano, IL
This really does help my makeup stay on. I changed nothing in my routine except adding this primer and noticed a huge difference!
Definitely don't recommend
Not good from Visalia
I wanted to love this product but it made my pores extremely noticeable.
Finally found the one
AngelicAngie from West Virginia
I have tried so many primers. I really liked a few of them on my face but they didn't grip my makeup well. Others gripped the make-up but the massive amounts of silicone made my face itch. This finally has the right balance. My makeup stayed all day without a bunch of transfer to my mask. I finally found a primer that does everything it's supposed to do. The combo of All-nighter primer and setting spray is hands down the best.
Drying and pills
kelly from Cincinnati OH
I wanted to love this... But, it completely pilled off when I applied my foundation. Then, my skin was dry and peeling for a couple days afterwards.

This primer broke my face out. I can't use it. Would like to return.
Light weight primer
Stacee from Kansas
This primary is not only lightweight it helps prepare the surface of the skin for make up that last hours and hours. I love it!
Favorite primer ever
Michelle from Tennessee
This is well worth your money, and a little goes a long way! Feels great on my skin, and grips makeup like no other I've tried! Skin looks flawless after makeup with this.
anshpo from Ohio
I have been searching for my holy grail primer and I think this is it. I have tried so many brand; department store, drugstore and indie brands. I have combo skin with fine lines and sun damage. Two pumps of this keeps my makeup looking fresher longer and my foundation doesnt settle into my lines and pores. I started using the UD allnighter setting spray last spring and absolutely loved it. Paired with primer, it is a fabulous combination that has really improved my overall makeup looks. If i could add any benefit that it is lacking, I would say I could use a little more help with my uneven texture. I tried UD silicone based primer and it was not a good fit for me. I am on my third bottle of Allnighter setting spray so UD definitely can count me as a fan!
Really locks your makeup
diana from Chicago
love this primer! I have tried a lot and this has now replaced all my holy grails I have. With the pandemic my makeup would transfer A LOT on my mask and I would have a patchy nose afterwards. But this primer keeps my makeup on with very little transfer to my mask. Highly recommend
I Love this face primer!!
Lori from Idaho Falls, ID
I Love how this primer is like a lotion than like the greasy clear goop other face primers are like out there!! Sits on my face beautifully!! I Love it!!
Best one I've tried!
TINA from Washington PA
I've tried several different primers was going to give up on them until I asked Holly!!! it keeps my foundation in place and it's not slimy it's more like a moisturizer!!! I love it! I can't say how it works with the heat yet!!!
Jessie123 from TN
Great primer! Made my foundation look velvety smooth. I have oily/combo skin & it's definitely one of my new favorite primers now!
Worked very well
Cindy from Johnson City Tn
Loved it, didn't feel heavy and didn't Bloch up when I added my base
Keeps makeup on
Rosy from Chicago
During this time having to wear face mask, I noticed since I have been applying the primer before the foundation my face up no longer rubs off on the mask. Real love this product
Jayysel from Porterville
I thought this primer would work out for my very oily skin but sadly it didn't. It didn't prolong my makeup any longer than other primers I've used.
Love, Love, Love
Darlene from Brunswick Ohio
Its hot in Ohio right now so since I have been a fan of All nighter Setting spray so I thought why not See how this primer does, well I am now a fan if this! Goes on creamy and smooth dries quickly and my makeup has stayed looking fresh even without using All nighter spray! Some primers seem to make my eye lids seem flaky but not this one! You won't be disappointed!
I would buy again and again
Toula from Rexburg
I've tried a lot of different primers smashbox (multiple kinds), NYX etc., I use urban decay all nighter foundation which I love so I wanted to try the primer and I LOVE it my makeup goes on so much smoother last way longer. I feel like my makeup is my skin it isn't pore clogging at all I haven't had any break outs like other brands, usually my makeup rubs off my nose easily and it stays so much more. I love it and will buy it again!
Holy grail forever and ever!!
Samm from Killeen, TX
I have struggled for years to find the right primer for my oily t-zone/ combination skin and this primer works wonders! I have to say the all nighter collection works best when all used together. I have the primer, foundation and setting spray and have not had any issues!
B from Arlington, TX
I've tried this a couple of time now. The first time, I used it with a matte foundation, and it looked awful. There was so much more texture, and it was just overall cakey. I tried it again with a dewey foundation, and it literally peeled off of my face. I didn't see any improvement in wear, or skin texture with this. Kind of bummed, and I'm apprehensive to try any more UD complexion products. Not for me.
Amazing!! The best!!
LoveGod from Burlington, IA
Best primer ever! Controlled my oiliness better than anything else. Idk why I waited so long to try it since I have been using the eye primer potion for years. Better late than never!
