Top be honest, I cannot tell either way whether this works or not. I only paid $3 for it and probably wouldn't buy it again. Ive never used a setting spray so I guess I thought it would "feel" like it was set or at least give some kind of different feel. It simply feels like I just spritzed water on my face. as for smell, I don't smell anything.
This stuff works. I usually hold it as far as possible from my face & then dry it with my blowdryer on low, but definitely makes the make up last.
Smells a little funky, but for the price...
if our just going out for the day it will work but for a long night i dont think it stood up to the hype
it does smell funny i actually use the UDPP and i use this for foiling my eyeshadow which works pretty well together
i will not repurchase
Great Stuff!!! i did my makeup as normal this morning about 6:00 a.m. i wear a full face almost daily cream foundation and loose powder to set, after that i gave about 5 pumps of this all over. i immediately noticed that my face looked less powdery than normal, usually i have to wait about a hour for my makeup to really set right but not with this. looked in the mirror about 10 a.m. and noticed it still looked very freshly done, anywhoo always around 12-1ish i have to retouch a little, but nope it still looked good. 3 rolls around i was outside in the heat for a good little while, my makeup still hadnt budged. its now after 6 p.m. and my make-up is still behaving well lol. the only bad thing i can say is the sprayer that elf gives you is bogus. i switched mine to a old victoria secret mini splash bottle and now its the perfect mist, the smell is slightly funky but it dissipates within a minute or so. TRY IT!!!!!!!!!
I use this product EVERYDAY when I am finished my makeup and it serves it purpose so well. It definitely helps my makeup last longer and is a cheaper alternative to Urban Decay's All Nighter Setting Spray. I just finished my first bottle of this and have been using it for about 2-3 months. I have three new bottles that I am planning to buy a new squirt bottle for because the bottles that this spray comes in is way, WAY too harsh for your face. Too much product is dispensed at once. So my only negative comment is about the packaging!
I really like this stuff!! I smell absolutely nothing from it. The only reason it got 4 lippies is because the spring in the pump broke, but I just poured it in another spray bottle. I just mist some in the air and walk under it. I think it feels nice and seems to keep my powder and blush in place a bit longer.
For $3, this is a pretty good cheap alternative setting spray. I use it when I over powder or start to look cakey. It adds a little dewey-ness back into my face. It does its job of keeping my foundation in place and making my makeup last longer. The spray is kind of strong though, so you're not really getting a light "mist", if that makes sense. Definitely have to be sprayed quite far away. I didn't notice the smell, maybe because it wasn't that strong to me, so I'm not bothered by it. If you don't want to spend money on the more expensive stuff, this one might work for you.
I like the finish. And as for the smell everyone complains about, yes it is there and it is not entirely pleasing but it isn't unbearably terrible because it fades.The smell reminded me of false eyelash glue, I've gotten used to it.
I bought this a few months ago and I am pretty pleased with it. It does keep my makeup in place for almost the entire day and keeps my oily skin in check. I actually am not bother by the smell even though it smells like hair dye to me. The only itty bitty issue I have with it is it takes a bit to dry. Other than than, this product is exceptional.
I wasn't really expecting a lot from this for $3 but I have to say, I'm impressed. I have oily skin and I work in a restaurant so normally my makeup is non-existent at the end of the day, but this keeps things more or less looking the way they should. I've seen a lot of comments about the smell but I didn't really notice it...
