I LOVE this product. My skin tends to get greasy throughout the day, so I tend to like matte products. However when I use matte products it makes me look like I am wearing pounds of makeup. This product is the only product I've ever tried that uses no shimmer or glosses to make my skin look beautiful and refreshed. I look like I have a lovely natural glow, without making my skin look like an oil slick throughout the day.
It DOES have a bit of an unpleasant fragrance, but it doesn't last very long, so I can deal with it.
The Spray is fantastic and even. One does the job, two is the absolute maximum I will ever use.
I don't know what I would do without this setting spray! I used to use Model In a Bottle, but I love this far more (especially for the price).
Works great for me especially this winter when my skin is dry looking. I spray a few pumps to set my makeup and my skin literally glows. Unlike mac fix + I don't have to reapply later. During the summer, I will switch to the matte setting spray.
I've never used a setting spray before.
This didn't really do anything. Maybe it made my powder look a *smidge* less powdery but I don't apply a lot of powder anyway. I really wanted this as a way to make my makeup - particularly my TM last longer - on causal days when I just wear TM. It didn't help at all.
I was a little concerned about what "dewy" would look like because one person's "dewy" is another person's "greaseball". But it really didn't look any different than my foundation's satin finish.
I feel like I got majorly ripped off buying a spray bottle of water with some alchol (which I didn't know beforehand) in it.
NOT BUY again.
I really enjoy this product. The one main complaint with it is that it seems to have a chemically smell, which is a bit of a turn off, but it dissipates quickly.
I have fairly dry skin and I like to wear full coverage products, so I have to be really careful to avoid looking caked. I feel that this product takes some of the powdery edge off my make up and gives me a more natural finish. I generally hold the spray an arm's length from my face and give myself a few sprays after I'm done with my makeup.
I can see what some other reviewers are saying about it leaving a "film", I do notice something kind of "sitting on top of" my make up throughout the day. Luckily, this isn't the kind of film that you can wipe off, and it's not greasy, so I don't mind it. The product definitely has a slight bit of heaviness to it, but it's not unbearable, and I'm used to a full face of make up, so it doesn't bother me at all. I could see those who prefer very light make up to be irritated by it, though.
My FAVORITE thing about this product, and why I'm writing this review is to share a tip: I have a huge problem with product settling into my fine lines throughout the day, drying them out, and making me look older than I am. I've tried various products and dozens of techniques for avoiding this, but nothing works. Setting my under eyes with powder (the standard recommendation) exacerbates the issue, as my problem is dry under eyes, and the powder makes them even more dry and crepey. One day, I decided to try to set them with this product. I sprayed a bit on my palm, then tapped my ring finger into the product, and dabbed it all over my under eye (after I'd applied concealer)...it looks so much fresher & brighter, and I haven't had any issue with my eyes looking shriveled and old since. I am SO pleased! I will continue buying this product for this reason alone! If you have a similar issue, I really recommend trying this! Hope this helps someone :)
I got this to replace the Pur one I was using because it was so much cheaper, but it's not the same. I do not get a dewy finish at all. It's matte and that's about it. I guess it sets my makeup, I don't notice a huge difference to be honest.
I am still on the hunt for a cheaper alternative and if I don't find one I guess I will stick with Pur or get UD. Before the spray the makeup i was wearing transferred to my phone, but after it didn't so much, so I guess that means it did set it somewhat.
I probably wont purchase again, but you never know. I don't like how it stayed matte, I like dewy because my skin is so dry.
This is by far THE BEST setting spray I have used to date! I have combination skin (quite an oily T-zone) and this has kept my makeup dewy and beautiful all day! I only need 3 decent sprays for my face an it leaves a gorgeous natural finish. I would highly recommend this and I will definitely buy again! The only improvement I have is the smell, it's smells a little chemicaly if you get what I mean but that's not enough to change my opinion!
I wish there was a "maybe" option when it came to repurchasing this product. I'm torn. I really do love the way it makes my makeup look. If I get a little powder-happy this takes away the look of that instantly. But I can also feel it on my skin, even after it dries. No matter how little I use. It's like a film that makes even my lightest-feeling foundations feel like heavy, full coverage products. It hasn't broken me out, but I can see it doing that to people with more reactive skin than mine.
It does keep my makeup in place, doesn't burn or smell bad, I just can't quite get over the way it feels. Maybe the mist isn't fine enough? Or maybe it's the product itself, I'm just not sure. Either way, I'll keep using it until it's gone because I love the look of it. I'm just not sold on the feeling, so I can't say for sure if I'm going to repurchase.
LOVE this spray. sets my make up. i have also read alot of reviews from girls saying they dont get a dewy finish, which is weird because i do. It is expensive as i have to get it shipped from the us to new zealand. The only thing bad about it is that its quite a small bottle and for $18.00. Not worth it to me.
Breaks me out like crazy :( ... And i don t break out that easy not many products do that to my skin so i was highly disappointed. Won t repurchase ever again.
I'm kinda a setting spray aficionado I own a lot of sprays UD All Nighter and De Slick,BRTC,Missha,and Elf to name a few. This one I like for removing the heaviness from my powder. It does hold makeup pretty well and the sprayer is a lot better than ELF's that's for sure. It doesn't make me break out and for a cool Fall day I think it holds my makeup just fine and in the Winter as well.
I think this is a good day setter when you just want to keep your look fresh. Going out dancing then most definitely bust out the All Nighter! For a regular work day unless you're sweating bullets I think this is great. It keeps the skin looking natural not shiny or anything like that. The product is decent as is the price so for me it's a keeper;) Recommended!
