Eh I mean...not crazy about it. I spray it on when my face is dry or before makeup. Doesn’t do anything spectacular. Could probably find a more affordable spray. Might not repurchase once I’m finished using.

Not sure why this is getting rave reviews.. the spray is harsh and it makes my skin wet (actual drops, even though I don't even spray it that close), sometimes it even smudges my mascara. It doesn't really seem to do much for my make up either. This was a let down tbh

So color me obsessed with this spray. It really does what it claims. I used it to dampen my RT sponge and to set my makeup for the day. I get a good 8 hours of staying power with this spray. I am really impressed and now I understand the hype. I am on my 2nd bottle and will continue to repurchase.

I love this stuff- it’s so versatile and refreshing and yes it’s mostly water and glycerin but it’s perfect and shelf stable. It’s so great for setting makeup and as a mixing medium for eyeliner and making eye shadows pop.

What manner of devilry or witchcraft is this stuff??!!
I got some as a wetting agent to use eyeshadow as an eyeliner and applying shimmers & glitters. Works pretty good, but I am still searching for my HG primer and/or eyeshadow base, I still get creasing or transferring of eyeliner on my upper eye. Was going to use it today but I spaced and forgot, and I had just did a glittery eye look that I would need to check like every hour. :/ So I decided to use it as a setting spray and did just one spritz aiming between my eyes. Forgot all about it for like 8 hours and finally remembered to do a face check and d**n - things looked as good, if not better, than they did when I applied it! I even swiped my eyes with my finger and nothing moved, not even my concealer.
So I am here to say 1) this stuff is awesome and 2) everyone who has ever recommended this is right. Yes you, you are right. I will be repurchasing but not immediately because my 1 oz. little is barely gone and I have used it many times already. I am tired of messing around, I don’t want to hear about any other brands or substitutes and will be using this from now on.

This is the second setting spray I've ever used, the first one being Wet n Wild's Natural PhotoFocus Setting Spray, so I don't have too much exposure or experience w/ setting sprays.

I did like how well this seemed to help hold my foundation & makeup when I was in humid countries like the Philippines & Thailand. Weather there was ~95 degrees Fahrenheit all day. It sprays evenly & beautifully. I always use this whenever I wear makeup so I don't know how my makeup is w/o it lol.

ive purchased 2 bottles of this, the first one, i blew through it like it didnt cost me $23 at the time.
the second one is still near full, as ive moved on to mario badescu for a facial spray, and urban decay all nighter for a setting spray.
im not really an intense makeup wearer, but i do wear it often,
the spritzer is uneven and quite strong.

i do agree that this product is wonderful in taking away the powdery look of makeup, but imo any facial spray will do that for you.

for the record i only buy the UD one when its on sale for half price

This is not the spray you want, but the spray you NEED. (lol) This product has been a constant repurchase for me for over 3 years now. I use it for so many purposes:

- If I want my makeup to last a smidgen longer, I use Fix+ to wet my Real Techniques sponge
- I spray my brush to foil my eyeshadows, I cannot find a better product for this!
- Once again If I want to prep my face before even PRIMER, I spray this on my face first
- If I apply too much powder, I use this to wet my face.

An absolutely great product and well worth the hype. Don't use it for a make-up prolonging spray though!

Amazing stuff! I wouldn't use this as a primer but this makes highlighter and eyeshadows more intense and is a great setting spray. I'm interested in the coconut scent, it will be my next purchase.

The MAC prep and prime setting spray is a great spray and it kind of reminds me of hairspray because that's what people used to do back in time.

I clearly can see that my makeup last longer and my forehead and nose area doesn't get greasy.

I would repurchase the product, if the mist wouldn't be so aggressive because that's the only negative point I experienced.
