"I recently changed my make up routine to MAC (from another brand who discontinued my favorite foundation).I have large pores, occassional hormonal acne, and sensitive skin, with patches of dryness on my cheeks and oily T-zone..The MAC associate recommended Complete Comfort Cream, this Natural Radiance Base, Face&Body Foundation, Mineralized Skin Finish and Fix Spray. I always wait a few hours to see if my face slides off or if I break out. I am on Day 7 of the same routine and no break outs! Hurray!I thought I could live without the Natural Radiance Base but the MAC associate suggested I go 1 day without to see if I noticed a difference. And boy did I notice the difference! Without - my face appeared dull and matte. With Natural Radiance Base, I felt like my face had an inner glow; the light reflected better off my face and seem to soft focus my lines and pores. Now I can't live without it!I must say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Complete Comfort Cream. Nordy's doesn't seem to sell it on-line but the store has it in stock. It really soothing and non greasy! I HIGHLY recommend the Complete Comfort Cream too. « less" - Nordstrom user

"I never write reviews about products but I just had to for this setting spray! I have used many setting sprays from MAC, estee lauder, urban decay, hourglass, etc. This one has the best staying power! It just locks your makeup in place all day! I wore this while walking around in the heat, wearing a mask, and sitting out on patios and my makeup was still looking fresh.Remember it is not a hydrating spray! It sets your makeup while giving you a natural finish. *Tip: I spray this at three different moments:1. Before I apply my foundation (I use the Laura Mercier Flawless Lumière Radiance-Perfecting Foundation)2. After my foundation is on, I lock it in with another spray3. I set my face with the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder and I spray once more to lock everything in!I have combo and acne prone skin and surprisingly this hasn't broke me out considering the ingredients in this product. I wish there was no fragrance added so -0.5 stars, but otherwise it is the best setting spray out there! Less" - Sephora user

"Recently, I had the privilege of trying the brand new Hourglass #Veil setting spray in exchange for my honest review. In the past I have found most setting sprays to be overly drying to my skin. Since Hourglass has been a name that I have associated with high quality cosmetics for so long now, I was super eager to test this one out! Especially because Hourglass claims their Veil setting spray is hydrating, water resistant and leaves behind a blurred finish! And let me tell you, at nearly 40 years of age I am all about that blur technology these days!!! I have used the veil setting spray the last couple of days now, and let me tell you, I am in love! It did not feel sticky or drying to my skin at all, the finish was absolutely gorgeous and my make up looked freshly applied all day! While I think the veil setting spray is wonderful for every day use, I think it would truly shine for makeup artists! Especially those working bridal events! What bride doesn’t want to look airbrushed and flawless all day?!" - sephora user
A weightless setting spray that locks in makeup for 12-hour wear while imparting a dewy, hydrated glow.
"I've been impressed with Neutrogena the past few years. They have formulated some of the best skincare + makeup in the marketplace. The Healthy Skin Radiant setting spray is another spot on product. I have been using it everyday for the past 13 days + it definitely helps extend the wear time of my makeup. The scent is lovely + fresh. Not over powering or perfumy. The spray nozzle evenly distributes enough product with 2-3x pumps. It brings some life back to my skin after setting it with powder, sometimes a powder can make your makeup look flat. This definelty gives a subtle glow. The liquid dries down quickly, doesn't feel sticky or leave an oily cast like some other setting sprays. It's not drying nor does it suck the moisture out of any cream or liquid makeup products applied under it. I normally use a well known higher end setting spray but I would say this performs as well if not better. I have normal to dry skin and would highly recommend this to my friends + family.

"This stuff is the real deal. I have oily-combo skin (much more oily at this time of year) and after seeing numerous positive reviews on this product I thought I'd give setting sprays one final try. In the past I've tried the Urban Decay All Nighter, Wet n Wild Photofocus, Essence Make it Last, and Ben Nye Final Seal setting sprays. While Ben Nye certainly held everything in place it did nothing for oil control (it never said it would but a girl can hope) and the other 3 didn't make a darn bit of difference on my oily skin. At this point I figured any results from setting sprays were just placebo effects. So when testing out this product I tried it a number of different ways to make sure I was actually seeing the results of the setting spray and not just the combo of other products I was using. I've tried this product over 2 different primers: the Dior Pore Minimising Mattifying primer and the Deciem Hylamide Matte 12 primer, as well as over 3 different foundations: the Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation set with the Laura Mercier translucent powder on a damp RT sponge, the KVD powder foundation, and the NYX Stay Matte powder foundation, and I found it made a difference in the oil control and the lasting power of my makeup with all of them, compared to not using it. As a final test I tried one day using just primer with powder foundation and no setting spray, as well as one day using my primer with no foundation or powder, just topped with the setting spray. This confirmed to me that the setting spray was actually doing something. Hallelujah! On the day without setting spray but with powder foundation, I noticed I was getting hella shiny after about 3-4 hours (the norm for me), but on the day where I skipped any sort of powder or foundation but used the setting spray just over primer, it was about 6 hours before I started to even look slightly shiny, perhaps even ‘glowy’, and even then there wasn't much oil residue on my face (normally I'd use up an entire blotting sheet or two by this point). Needless to say, I was impressed. My only con about this product is the nozzle, as other reviewers have mentioned. It doesn’t give a very even mist and I found I was getting more product on my arms than my face. So I recommend decanting it into another spray bottle if you have one, or what I like to do instead is I spray the flat side of my RT sponge (or you could use a BB) and then dab it on my face where I need the oil control. I also find this prevents the spray from smudging my mascara or drying out my lips. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Sephora user

"I have very oily skin and most setting sprays do not help my makeup last. However, Ben Nye's Final Seal is a godsend. If I am going to a professional or formal event, this is my go-to setting spray because I know my makeup will last all day or night. I also like that CRC guarantees that we are getting genuine products and not fake products from other vendors. Also, the price is really great compared to other vendors!

"I have fair, super dry, hyper-sensitive skin, have tons of allergies and am also celiac so it is an unending often traumatic event searching for, and trying on, make up and skincare products.I had bought this in the smaller size to use as a spray when applying pigment powder shadow to highlight areas on the eyelid however one day I figured might as well try it on my face - I expected a breakout and full on rash within hours .... but that didn't happen. I expected to wake up the next day cover in red dots or hives, that didn't happen either. I was stunned speechless! No breakout, no rashes, no irritation.This MUFE setting spray is unbelievable!!! It did not dry out my skin at all, it did not make dry patches stand out in fact it helped them blend in (dare I say vanish), it kept every bit of makeup on my face in place, and the bonus, a lovely subtle dewy-like finish. It definitely is NOT shiny, and NOT sticky at all and I never ever 'feel' that I have it on.I have been using this for over a month and it truly is Magic in a bottle. My ride or die setting spray - if you are sensitive skinned or dry skinned, give this a go. « less" - Sephora user
"I am in absolute LOVE with this product. I work at a school and as a tutor, so I usually have a 60+ hour work week where I am constantly around people. Doing my makeup is one of my favorite parts of my morning routine (except, I'll admit, some days when I'm feeling super lazy, it is a hassle) and having this product has become a necessity. I received this alongside Sephora's Beauty Amplifier AfterGlow Primer and Luminizer, and together, they have taken my makeup look up to a new level.Just as a background, I have acne-prone, combination skin. I have areas that are extremely oily and areas that are extremely dry. Also, my complexion is pretty red overall (from years of picking/popping my acne, constant black/white heads, dullness, etc.mosturized), so I use a lot of product on my face. I use three different serums, a moisturizer, two primers (including the one listed above), and I have also started to add this spray before I put on my makeup, too. I find that doing this has really evened out my combination skin by keeping my dry/flakey skin moisturized and surprisingly, reducing the redness in other areas. I also find that my makeup stays on longer (which is a huge benefit, once again, since I have to wear my makeup for 12+ hour days sometimes).As for a setting spray, I find that it works pretty well, but I still also use a Kat Von D spray, too. I have to say, though, as a refreshing spray, this is phenomenal. My makeup often needs to be retouched during the day and will start to get cakey, flakey, or come off -- but I keep this in my purse (I wish I had a travel sized version, but since I don't, and I love this stuff so much, I don't mind having to carry it with me) to refresh my makeup during the day.I hate sounding like one of those cliche sales-pitch type commenters, but it's true -- this stuff has completely changed my makeup routine. My makeup stays on longer when I use it post-primer, pre-makeup, and it also ensures that I consistently look like I have that fresh-faced look. I don't worry about my makeup looking like I've been wearing it for hours (because we all know how that looks and how disappointing it is to know that makeup will definitely look that way at the same time every day, and I still have to see different people and work, despite my makeup looking less-than-presentable) but this stuff ensures my makeup always looks fantastic. And I LOVE that it gives me that dewy look without looking oily (I'm 22 and ever since I started doing my makeup as a teenager, I've always preferred a matte-look because I hated how greasy my skin looked otherwise, but this stuff makes my skin look perfectly dewy, not moist or oily, and I absolutely ADORE it).I will keep this product as a part of my makeup routine, and I am so ecstatic to be finally able to make my makeup look fresh throughout the entire day, regardless of how long I'm wearing it! « less" - Sephora user
Put on a fresh face with NYX Professional Makeup's Bare With Me Prime. Set. Refresh. Multitasking Spray. Infused with aloe and cucumber extracts, this sensitive skin-friendly spray has your complexion covered every step of the way.
"I went to my local MAC counter, wanting to try out a foundation. When the MAC artist was beginning the application, she used this on my skin before everything else. I could not get over how silky and energized my skin felt. I ended up buying it with the foundation and primer, and it's become a staple in my skin care and foundation routine ever since. I have severely dry skin. It's been a huge struggle to find a moisturizer that will A.) actually penetrate my skin and make a difference and B.) won't feel greasy under my makeup. This is it. It's perfect. It's thicker and more potent that a face lotion, but not as greasy and lingering as a creme would be. It's just the right balance. I use this morning and night, everyday. And as I mentioned before, it's a great product to use under primer and foundation. It does not make my foundation slip and slide everywhere, and it keeps dry skin under control. Also, it has helped with my overall skin appearance, making it look more even and nourished. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - M·A·C user
A refreshing, weightless micro-mist that locks in makeup for up to 24 hours.
"If you have oily skin and are debating on whether to purchase the Original All Nighter Setting Spray or the All Nighter Ultra Matte Setting Spray, both work great but go with the latter. As I tend to be shiny 15 minutes after I've applied my makeup, but this stuff works all day and night. The trick I have found helps is after applying my morning skin routine, I lightly spray the Urban Decay All Nighter Ultra Matte Setting Spray all over my face and let it dry down. I then apply a light dusting of loose facial powder and my primer. If I need to makeup to hold up even longer because I'll be outside in the heat, I apply another light spray after I've applied foundation and then put on my setting powder and the rest of my makeup. And when I'm all done, one last light spray and use a damp sponge to melt everything in my skin. This sets everything for an entire day. I can lightly touch up before going out at night and everything lasts ALL NIGHT. Worth every penny. Less" - Sephora user

Clarins Fix' Make-up is a light and refreshing mist that sets makeup and soothes the skin.
"I am 46, live in Humid City, FL and have EXTREMELY oily skin. EXTREMELY oily!! I bought this with fingers crossed that it would at least keep the oil away until lunchtime. At 12:30, I pulled out my usual arsenal of blotting papers and powder - and was in absolute awe. I was hardly glistening!!! I grabbed one of my blotting papers just to see. HARDLY ANY OIL on my paper and my makeup was still intact (especially my nose and chin area)!!! I checked again around 3pm...still hardly anything on my blotting paper. By the time I got home (around 6:30pm) I checked again. STILL matte and no slipping of my makeup. I cannot be without this product EVER. I have tried many mattifying setting sprays, mattifying primer, mattifying foundations, sebum control powder...you name it...and nothing has helped like this has. I spray quite a good amount on my face, let it dry down, and then add my highlight. And can we just talk about the spray on this bottle?!? You can hardly feel it due to its SUPER FINE mist!!! Don't be afraid to get up close with your bottle! It's honestly THE BEST misting spray I have ever used...and I have used many - high end and drugstore. DREW GOT IT RIGHT!!! Recap: I do use a good amount (maybe 8-10 sprays)...have aging AND severely oily skin, and live in the Humidity Capitol of the USA. DEFINITELY a ride or die product for me. Less" - ulta.com user
"Re-Dew is not your ordinary toner or setting spray. It's not like hair-spray at all. It does not contain alcohol or anything gummy or sticky, and it does not make skin look shiny or oily. This is wonderful for refreshing and rehydrating face and neck. It comes out in such a fine mist you can't feel it touching skin. After a few sprays, I can feel some dampness and my skin feels instantly more plumped from the hyaluronic acid, but I learned I don't need more than one or two sprays for this to work its magic. I use a couple of sprays on my face and neck in the late afternoon and I look revived. My face starts feeling dewier and plumped, This is very nice on my neck too. It's not sticky and it's definitely not like using hairspray on skin, like so many other makeup setting sprays. I don't use this as a "setting spray", so I'm not sure how it works for making makeup last longer. It's not something I could see working well with a matte finish foundation if you want a truly "matte" finish, however, I do use it over powder and it works beautifully to soften any cry, cakey areas. This does not make my skin look greasy, and it's comforting during long dry winter days. I spray it on the back of my hands to combat painful dryness and they look and feel so smooth! It lasts for hours on skin, making it an exceptional product." - sephora user

I use it under my makeup (I still use a primer but I'm old and have dry skin and wrinkles), and on top of it, and between my liquid and powder makeup (just eyes, I don't use an eye primer which might change if I needed it there).SOMETIMES I still use my up all night (like when I start work at 5 am and finish at midnight but that just might be overkill)I do find the up all night does make my mascara run when i first spray it and this does notthis does have a smell to it but I happen to love it!I can also put on moisturizers and this and no makeup for a great look even at my age.

"Despite hearing mixed reviews about this setting spray - especially from those with sensitive skin - I decided to try the 'Slay All Day' setting spray. I have quite sensitive skin, and tend to go quite red after applying some products; however, i found that this spray leaves skin feeling refreshed - keeping make up in place all day - without a sticky residue. I purchased the scent Lemongrass, which is lovely! Although the smell does fade after applying, and does not stay with you all day. I definitely recommend this product to anyone thinking of purchasing a good quality setting spray - regardless of skin type." - beautybay user
"I'm generally an oily skinned gal, so I tend to look for longer wearing products. My favorite foundation is Tarte Amazonian Clay (powder maybelline fit me loose). I spritz a bit of this setting spray after applying my foundation, fan to dry, apply powder products, Mario badescu cucumber spray to tone down the powderyness (this has never done anything to improve the lasting power of my makeup, just adds some hydration for me) and then this setting spray again. I was going through the urban decay all nighter just too quickly, and wanted a more cost effective option. Makes my makeup last all day (and yes I can tell a difference if I don't add the setting spray, and just foundation/powder)." - ulta user
"First off, a disclaimer: this is my first experience with using a setting spray, so I have no other products to compare it to. Having said that, I must say that I LOVE this stuff. I've always wondered how other women get their makeup to look so flawless and finished - I think this was the step I was missing! My basic makeup routine is very simple: primer - concealer - BB / CC cream - mineral powder. It always looked okay but somehow unfinished. Adding this setting spray to the end makes all the difference in the world. And it really has helped my makeup last all day. CoverGirl, you've converted me to a setting spray devotee! " - Target user
"I found the Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray to be a delight. It claims to be non-comedogenic and as someone with acne-prone skin, this is always important. Even more important though is the fact that it actually caused no break-outs for me, which is always a worry when trying to new face product. Additionally, it has a very fine mist so it's easy to get an even, thin layer across your face. The packaging advises to spray in an X and T shape but I found the product to cover a wider swath of area so that wasn't necessary. I only needed four spritzes to completely cover my face and it dried down within a minute. It does have a distinct scent to it, something that reminds me of baby wipes, however the scent goes away as soon as it dries and I didn't find in anyway to be problematic or overwhelming. I tried this product with two separate foundations to see if that effected the how well the product worked. The first foundation I used it with typically wears off within six hours and leaves an oil slick behind. When used in conjunction with this setting spray, the foundation was only half-way gone and I was only mildly shiny. When used with my other foundation which typically keeps me matte but disappears from my nose area, my nose coverage lasted all day. So I feel confident in saying that this product does indeed help the wear-time of your makeup and helps improve upon whatever face products your using. However, if you face make-up itself isn't great quality then this setting spray can only help so much. On top of that it's from the drugstore so it's easy to find and it is at a nice price for the quality of the product you receive. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an affordable setting spray. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]" - walgreens user

"I recently purchased this product in search for an alternative to my expensive setting sprays. I am happy to say I like it and it does the job and it does it well. The nozzle isn't as fine as I would like and it did take some time for the product to dry completely, but when it did, my face looked smooth and not cakey even around my undereye highlight. My makeup stayed in place all day (which is fairly typical for me as I'm not very oily) and it didn't smudge at all (which does happen to me on occasion so the spray works!). This setting spray comes with a separate cap that I'll probably use when I travel since I always lose the caps for the spray nozzles. The bottle is attractive and suitable for travel although it's larger than most of the setting sprays that I've used.
