I barely ever write reviews except if it's something that totally blew me off or blew me away...So this one here is just freaking amazing! now that it's been discontinued, I frequently come here to see if someone's managed to find an exact dupe for it. While everyone else knew VS was discontinuing this (and all their other makeup) the second time, I was living under a rock. If only I knew I'd have grabbed 10 bottles to store for the rest of my life...Now for the review, well this stuff is just gold when it comes to priming your skin. I've tried many other brands UD, smashbox and my favourite -fix plus- none of them work as perfectly as a primer as this does. It works like magic with my Mac face and body, so much that people have asked me, ME with the ordinary skin and skin tone, what I'm wearing on my skin or why is my skin so Glowy! I wonder who makes these smart ass company decisions (I'm Canadian so like hello Target) and turn a fine running business to dust. Even the VS blushes and bronzers I have from a few years ago still are the ones I reach for the most despite having tons others. So here I cry myself a river for when I run out of this magic potion to never find it again.

Excellent Value for money I picked mine up for £9.99 at duty free. I feel it does just as good job as Urban Decay setting spray but is faaaar cheaper!It keeps my make up in place throughout the day, in hot weather when I am sweaty, etc. Also I used to find the the Urban Decay spray sometimes left little 'speckles' on my skin which this one does not. My only issue is I am not a big fan of the smell.

Per Victoria's Secret this has been discontinued and IS NOT being reformulated or repackaged.EDIT:Will be buying a 2nd bottle off of ebay. This is freaking amazing!!!! It was alright when used as a makeup setting spray, BUT when used as a primer...Amazing. My skin looks so flawless,it looks so smooth and my pores are hardly visible. It also makes my foundation application so much easier, it glides on effortlessly. I thought my F80 brush was great, but I love it so much more when paired with this spray. I've used Model in a Bottle, Ben nye final seal, Ud Chill, All Nighter & De Slick...THIS BEATS THEM ALL.

I don't know how I'm going to live without this stuff! I worked at VS for a couple of years and never tried the product even though many women came in raving about it, until we had our winter SAC and all the makeup was discontinued and super cheap. They were originally $14.00 CAD, and had been marked down to $3.50 CAD, so I decided to pick one up. I tried it the next day, and holy cow... I didn't know it was possible for my makeup to look that good that long!! I wore a few sprays under my makeup as a primer, and over my makeup as a setting spray. I also tried it just under and just over and it worked just as well. They ended up going on even more of a discount, and at $1.75 CAD, how could I resist buying the remaning 12 bottles in the store right?? RIGHT! Hopefully you were able to get your hands on one of these! I'm going to save mine for special occasions so I don't run out, and pray they bring back the line!

Im on my third bottle. That says much! I wasnt a primer/setting spray fan until this. Tried MAC fix Plus wasnt impressed. This is slightly sticky but not uncomfortably so. Just enough to 'hold' makeup in place, take away the powdery lokk and give a lovely radiance. Its a great moisture spray as well due to the glycerin in it. I love this and will continue to purchase. I will say that I transfer it to the mini fix plus bottle. The mist is finer and its travel friendly so took one lippy off for the packaging.

I grabbed 2 bottles of this because it was on sale for 3$ so I since using setting sprays I love trying new ones and for the price I was like heck yea! It works really well. You can use it before your makeup or as a setting spray to hold it. I used it for setting and my goodness my makeup did not budge and I had a watery eye dang allergies. But my makeup stayed on perfectly. I do spray semi generosly so it left me a little shiny. But my Hourglass Diffused Light got rid of it no problem. Then I dust some Ballz on and my skin looks normal 😋 I like the spray on this it's pretty fine better than others I have. This says it works for 8 hours I think I got more but it works excellent and I want to go back and get more while there still there.Great product! I will use this daily and save my more pricy ones for special occasions because this is an excellent product. Love it! Totally Recommended:)

I am absolutely blown away by this product! Long ago I've heard so many good things about the Victoria's Secret Face Prime as a dupe/alternative to the UD setting sprays. So when I saw the Prime & Set in store, I assumed that it is essentially the same product, just repackaged, and bought it straight away.The packaging is nice and simple, just a clear plastic bottle with a sturdy spray top. It looks like it has a lot of product in there, which is great. Price is pretty reasonable as well. I bought it for SGD$22 in the Penang Airport. No complaints here.For priming, I use quite a lot of sprays all over until my face looks pretty damp/wet. It takes awhile to dry but I definitely do let it sit there for 5 minutes until it doesn't feel wet anymore (it will still LOOK wet, however). At this stage, it does feel VERY tacky on the skin - I was pretty shocked! I tried this with a powder foundation that is notorious for 1) oiling up super quickly, 2) being easily transferrable and 3) caking up horribly. The powder doesn't break me out, however, so I was also testing if the setting spray broke me out.I was afraid the tackiness will cause the power foundation to bunch up the moment the brush touched my skin, but it didn't! It definitely took a bit more effort to buff the powder over the skin due to the tackiness, but the end result was amazing. I could layer the powder more so than usual without it looking too cakey. After powdering up, I used 2 more light sprays over the top to set. The skin didn't feel tacky anymore, but it definitely didn't feel as soft as velvet since my powder doesn't produce that sort of finished texture.Typically, pressing a clean tissue over my skin would cause much of the powder to transfer, but this time, NOTHING transferred at all! It did transfer after I washed and wiped my mouth after eating, but so much less than if I didn't use the spray. With this powder, I usually oil up within a half hour, but even after 3-4 hours this time round, all I had developed was a healthy glow that I would be more than happy to get with a natural-finish liquid foundation. There was absolutely no caking and no breakouts as well, which was mind-blowing considering how much powder I had piled on and how often I touch my face.Needless to say, this oily-skinned girl will be repurchasing this if I ever do run out of this bottle! I am excited to try this with liquid foundations, but judging by the results after using a horrible-performing powder foundation with it, I have very high hopes.

This product is amazing! Both as a primer and setting spray. I've got very sensitive skin and I found it hard to find a primer that worker well with my makeup and MAC Fix made me look way too oily after an hour of having it on. My makeup stays well on even after a night of partying and doesn't make me look oily at all! Definitely a great product, I've tried many primer's and this by far is the best!
