I love this stuff, and I've found a couple tricks that help prevent stinging and stickiness. First I hold the bottle a little farther away than it says to, and this prevents stickiness. Then I spray three mists left to right, like this: side, center, other side. The reason I don't start in the center is just in case I hold the bottle a little too close to my face, I can adjust it before spraying the center of my face, in order to eliminate any stinging in my eyes. Even with my dry skin, I have no problems when I apply it this way, and it really works like a charm to keep my makeup in place.

I had to transfer mine to another bottle due to leakage, pretty much after only a couple of uses. Once in reliable bottle, it was okay. I didn't experience burning of eyes or gnashing of teeth like most people. It didn't smudge my mascara, even after spraying it on after I'd already put my mascara on, but I don't take a damned bath in the stuff like some people, either. It did feel a bit sticky on my face for the rest of the day, like I sprayed hairspray on my face or something and the smell would hang around but it wasn't terrible. I definitely think it did me no favors in the winter, when my skin is a bit on the dry side, so I mainly would use during summer months. Wouldn't buy again due to the fact that I don't like to feel like I sprayed super glue on my face and I have better sprays that don't cost as much.

It stinks like perfume, it stings when it hits my face, and leaves my skin looking older, with an over-mattified, crepey appearance. What's to like? Not much! (Give me Skindinavia or FACE atelier's sprays over this, any day!)

It might be okay for someone with truly oily, completely tolerant skin, who doesn't mind fragrances, but for me: no.

BTW: the bottle leaked.

this is hands down the best setting spray I've ever tried. This is the only one that truly sets my makeup the entire day. I got the matte finish spray because I have oily combo skin and prefer a matte finish. I don't even have to touch up thoughout the day which is a miracle for me. This is a godsend and definite HG for me!!!

I bought this on eBay from beautychoicecenter for $13.90.

When I first opened it, I thought the bottle was very simple and pretty looking. I have the one in the new, straight up-and-down bottle. Original formula.

When I first used it, the smell was very alcohol scented. It would disappear after a few seconds. After using this for a few days, I didn't even notice the smell anymore (it's still there, I guess I'm just used to it). On some days, the nozzle kind of got stuck, so the product would come out in a stream. I would run the nozzle under hot water to fix it. After the first week or two, I stopped having this problem.

It's very important to follow the directions. There is a reason it says to wait 20-30 seconds to open your eyes after spraying. I slightly opened my eyes after about 10 seconds and it stung a little. This does have alcohol in it after all.

This either controls the oil or contributes to it depending on what foundation or BB cream I'm wearing. If I'm using a foundation that already isn't matte and makes my nose get oily within an hour or two of using it, this product makes it 3x as oily. If I'm using something that takes 2+ hours for oil to show, this product makes my face stay almost shine free for 5+ hours. After looking closely, I noticed oil builds up differently with this on. Without it, oil coats my nose. With this, the oil just beads up on the pores and doesn't spread everywhere.

My makeup definitely comes off less after using this. I had a habit of touching my face and when I did, my foundation would transfer to my school papers (brown fingerprints on white papersó ew). Not when I used this. And I still have the habit of sometimes sleeping in makeup. I'm a very wild sleeperó I toss and turn and rub my face on my pillow a million times. My makeup is still on when I wake up. Depending on what foundation I'm using, it will either look broken up in some places or really smooth. When I don't set my face with this, my makeup is usually gone when I wake up.

I was given this by a friend after I had started using Urban Decay All-Nighter. It works well. The smell at first is atrocious! However, once the spray dries the scent goes away completely, so if the product works then that doesn't matter to me so much. At first, it burned my face and felt sticky, but again, this only lasts a few minutes. I'll finish the bottle and will probably repurchase for those times when I just can't afford to replace the UD, but since I tried a product I liked better to start, I can't give this 5 stars. Bottom line: it DOES work and is a good value, but not the best product on the market.

Absolutely love this! I have combination/oily-acne prone skin and I know this is just for special occasions but this product is truly a holy grail! I've used it and literally my makeup has lasted from 8am to 1130pm (when i get home from work) and all i had to do was just powder my nose a little midday. Normally my makeup, including eye makeup, would be non-existent by 5pm. I definitely recommend this product for special events but not for daily use as it could make you break out. I used it for work because I needed to try it out before I used it on a client. The cost of this product is totally worth buying, I got mine through Amazon for $13.99....Idk about other people that have tried this, but I love it.

This is an amazing spray if you have oily skin. This is one of your answers if you're someone who can't get your makeup to stay on your skin due to too much oil production. In my experience, this is better in terms of oil-control then Ben Nye Final Seal. This provides a more matte finish when it dries versus Ben Nye's less mattifying finish. I find Final Seal to be a bit longer lasting but the oil-control isn't as good oddly enough. I've bought both sprays twice & this has always been the case. My skin is more combination-dry because it's winter so it doesn't work for me right now. Back when my skin was very oily this was my favorite & seriously made a world of a difference. I don't have to worry when someone hugs me or when I'm in a crowd & someone bumps into me that my makeup is gonna come off, it will withstand those obstacles. It will transform your makeup & make it budge, sweat and almost waterproof. Now when you first try this, if you're someone that's not used to setting sprays be prepared. This is NOT like Urban Decay's or Skindinavia's sprays, no, this is of a different calibur. Model in a Bottle, unlike those, actually works & is heavy-duty in comparison. This sprays on much stronger & you can kind of feel it on your face. Don't be alarmed, it's not too bad & you will grow accustomed to it. Actually, now I feel weird almost naked if I'm somewhere that I know I'm going to be for a long time because I know my makeup won't last nearly as long when I don't have this on. There is a fragrance, kind of a perfume scent but it smells pretty good, though you sometimes get a whiff of alcohol aswell. Even though my skin is sensitive, the fragrance doesn't seem to bother it but there is a Sensitive formula if you're worried about that. A con of this spray is that the mist isn't very fine, it has the tendancy to concentrate a lot in one area. To help remedy that, you should clean the nozzle after every use to keep the product from gunking up in it. You can find this a lot of places online but I always buy mine from Amazon because it's much cheaper from a seller with good ratings & I've never been disappointed.
