I am pretty desperate for a setting spray that actually works (as in helps keep my makeup on my face and not my shirt and friends), therefore I SO wanted this to work. But there is so much bad about it that the negatives outweigh it's marginal effectiveness.

1) It cuts the coverage of my foundation--VERY noticeably. This is a deal breaker for me. I wear full coverage foundation for a reason. I want something to provide a seal over it, not break it down. I suspect the amount of alcohol is the culprit here.

2) It is highly allergenic to me. So much so that I suspect it would be a problem for quite a few other people. It burns--even over thick foundation. I almost wonder if this is even safe for the skin--it's that bad.

3) It is only marginally effective. If you want to DRY a wet foundation down, it would work. If you want to keep a cream foundation on your face, probably not. It will just break it down. I still had some transfer with a creamy liquid.

4) Yes, good God, the freakin sprayer. Really?! How long has this been around? Make the sprayer at least as good as the one on the bottle I get at Dollar Tree. I don't understand why companies don't get that, for this type of product, the sprayer IS important! I've tried 10 different setting sprays lately, and I swear only 2 of them had decent sprayers!

Rant to be continued, I'm sure...

i agree,i love this setting spray but the spray bottle does not spray I though it was the spray nozzle but even when I change the nozzle it still comes out in droplets so I think it the product,so I spray it up in the air n let it desipate in the air n then put my face there as it spreads out or there will be spots/patches all over ur make up.

Works great! I recently did three shows in a day, all outside. I applied my makeup at 8:30 in the morning and it still looked great at 9 pm for the last show.

I do scrape the outlet before every use and squirt into the sink until the desired spray pattern is achieved.

It stings! I spray with my eyes squinched shut and make sure I have some cardboard nearby. As soon as I spray I fan like crazy and I don't open my eyes until the seal is dry.

I would not use for every day but for performance, I never go without it.

works well. but the spray bottle itself does not spray a fine mist like it should. Instead, sort of like small water droplets, so it does not apply an even coating on your face. That is easily fixable if you order a fine mist spray bottle on Amazon that is meant for perfumes and such.

I mean, what can I say that hasn't already been said?!! This stuff is amazing and I couldn't wait for shipping so I went to my local theatre/costume shop and sure enough they had it. I don't mind the mouthwash smell, or the slightly stiff face for a minute afterward ( the feeling wears off). It's too good! I was using Wet n Wild face spray and that still nice, but this stuff locks-in my make better. The BEST thing is that it firmly sets my eyebrows in place!!! I'd would but this just for that. I also find that I don't have to reapply my lipstick as often. My pores look small, my skin looks fresh all day, it's a win-win! I will most likely repurchase unless Blue Marble is better. I heard that stuff is amazing, so of course I will have to try it! I'm such a makeup/ product junkie.

I agree with all the good reviews already posted, I just wanted to add that I wipe the nozzle portion of the bottle with an alcohol wipe (the little ones that you can buy at the pharmacy, usually used by diabetics, a couple of dollars for a box of 100) or rubbing alcohol on a cotton pad, before spraying and then after, before replacing the cap. This stops the spray nozzle from clogging up and squirting instead of spraying. goth

Ordered this product off Amazon after a makeup tutorial I saw on YouTube. I believe it's mainly used for theater, costumed characters etc. Only ordered 1oz just to see the hype. Did full face- primer, foundation, eyeshadow, eyeliner, lipstick. I sprayed about 2-3 mists 8 inches away across my face. Mist is VERY minty so it'll tingle or sting depending on your skin (if it gets on your lips, it'll sting like hell!) It takes awhile to fully dry, I tried to fan my face to hurry it up. Out on a humid day, I perspired am bit, dabbed my face w/a paper towel, a small bit of foundation transfer but nothing else but no transfer on clothing. This product does have tendency to feel sticky on face. I would recommend this product to avid makeup wearers & for special occasions but if you have sensitive skin; handle with caution.

One of the best setting sprays on the market! I have tried the NYX matte setting spray, ELF setting spray, MAC fix plus, and UD Final Seal, and this product is the only setting spray that truly sets my makeup. I would still get a little bit oily but I have super oily skin. However, my makeup would not transfer and was waterproof! I would pat my skin with a paper towel and there would be no transfer. I wanted to see how it would really work so after a longer day after being out and sweating, I stepped into the shower, wet my face, came out, and patted my skin dry. NO TRANSFER! My face makeup still looked the same but my mascara was all over. This honestly helps my makeup stay on all day and look very fresh.

When you first apply it, be careful not apply it too close because then only parts of your face is set and the rest aren't and it will very noticeable. Once, I applied it too close to the center of my face, and I has small dots of foundations coming off and small dots of foundation that stuck. It would recommend spraying it in the air, then walking into it, spraying it on your beauty blender, or spray it straight up in the air, tilt your head back then wait to let it "fall" on your face. For the price, it is a bargain compared to the $30 UD setting spray. I believe I paid less than $10 at Ricky's.

I have tried various other makeup sprays before, from both drugstores & Sephora but none of them have worked like Ben Nye's Final Seal Setting Spray. I gave it a chance, ordered a small one on Amazon, & decided to test it on a trip to the lake. I went swimming with a full face of makeup, & nothing budged. I let my face air dry after swimming and it looked like I had never even wet my face. The only thing some people could have a problem with is the scent- it smells super minty, not everybody likes that, as well as the feeling you get when you first mist it on your face. It takes some getting used to because you'll feel sticky after spraying it on but once it's dry the feeling goes away. Aside from those minor things I've realized this is the setting spray for me, & I'm currently ordering a big sized one from Amazon, since I can't really find a store that sells it. I love it so much!
