I picked up the sample size of this product at Sephora in hopes that it would help me pull off dewy foundations without getting oily within an hour. The first time I used this I used it both under and over my makeup and it made me look greasy immediately. I discovered that when I sprayed it over my makeup as a setting spray it really made me greasy but when I used it under all my makeup it didn't. Still, it doesn't really help stop oil, and to be honest when I used it under my favorite matte foundation, it made me greasy after just 4 hours. Really not a fan, I am so thankful I only bought the tiny bottle. Considering I have both dry and oily skin I don't think I would recommend this to anyone.
I don't really know how I feel about this product. It works on some days...for a litle, but for the most part....I'm still oily. I did get the large bottle on sale at Ulta for only $18, so that's not too bad. I like that it reduces that "powdery" look. I don't think it makes my makeup lasts any longer though, and it might help with my oiliness just a tad. My friend, who also bought this product and has oily skin, loves this product, so you may as well. I would recommend buying the mini travel size first
Great product - I spray this on before and after applying makeup, then throughout the day on my wedding day and it really does help to set the makeup and prevent it from getting too oily (I have quite oily skin).
The bottle lasted me and 4 bridesmaids for the entire day, and I've still got some leftover. Definitely using it for nights out or when I've got a long day ahead of me with makeup.
I got a deluxe sample of this from Sephora as a 100 point perk. It does seem to make a difference in the wear of my makeup and feels very refreshing. I would compare it to MUFE's setting spray and might buy it some day if found on sale.
i have oily skin and am always searching for products to make my foundation last longer so i decided to pick this up. I don't think it makes a difference at all in how long my makeup stays on. it does feel refreshing when you spray it on though.
I really like this product. I use it both before I do my face makeup, and after to set everything. It doesn't make me look shiny, just healthy. And it makes my skin feel nice. But I really have no idea if this does anything to help the longevity of my makeup. It doesn't make a significant enough difference for me to justify buying it again. I think I might try the all nighter spray next time.
I dont think this helps on my oily skin , but the other version "all nighter" do a great job :-D ..
I thought this will help me with my oily skin. Nope. Didn't make a difference it stayed the same with or without the spay. I put it before and after my foundation.
This product really didn't do anything for my combination skin. As a primer, it was fine. No better or worse than other primers I've tried, but doesn't have SPF, which to me is a negative. As a finishing spray, I really didn't like this product. It gave my face a wet/shiny look (even after it dried), which is ironic given that it's an oil-control setting spray.
Overall: Pass. As a primer, meh. As a finishing spray, bad.
Alternatives: I've just started using Skindinavia Finishing Spray (also makes this product), which has done a great job making my makeup last longer so far. However, I haven't been using long enough to have a strong opinion. I stil haven't found a primer that I'm particularly enamored with yet.
Value: Bad, mostly because I don't like the product.
I really like this Setting Spray, its the first one I have ever used and Im impressed so far :), I spray it after my foundation and again after I finished all my make-up. This spray definitely takes the 'Powdery' look away which I always tend to have because I have oily skin so I do anything possible to matt my face but it still leaves my skin looking matt. It doesn't make my make-up last a huge amount longer than it normally does (maybe about 3-4 hours)
+ Gets rid of powdery look while still matting the face
+ Makes makeup last longer (3-4hrs)
+ Can be used as a primer which I dont do but I will definitely try
+ Nice packaging
+ Can be used during the day to make the makeup look like you just did it
- Quite pricey
