it keeps my skin hydrated throughout the day, as well helps set in my foundation to keep it looking smooth and perfect, without looking cakey

- Walgreens User

it dries immediately, does not make your face greasy or sticky, and does not disrupt any makeup applied

wow my mineral makeup lasted all day with this stuff, love it

our make up stayed on all night

i use this to set my makeup after applying my mattifying powder because it keeps the matte look still there while holding everything in place and making my face have a little color without the shine that a dewy foundation gives

i've used the makeup forver mattifying primer and never worked

Effective and Affordable

I knew I was in need of a setting spray as soon as the summer heat started coming and I immediately started sweating all of my makeup off. I needed something that will keep at least most of it in place throughout the day. I'm a fan of e.l.f. products and have considered buying this for some time, so I finally caught it at Target ($6) and picked it up.From the first time you use it, there is a noticeable difference in the amount of makeup that stays on your face. When I'm out and it's hot, it doesn't feel like I'm sweating my entire face off anymore. It's good to know that I'm still retaining a decent amount of coverage even after baking in the heat.But I wanted to know how much of a difference it actually made. I swatched my full coverage foundation on my arm and sprayed part of it with the makeup mist, and the other half without. I took a tissue and wiped my arm with medium pressure (pictured), and found that the side with the makeup mist did not make an incredible difference, but definitely a noticeable one. With a generous application of the mist, you could get away with retaining most of your makeup even after wiping your face. This alone is why I think this product is worth the buy.The downfall is that it does make your face a bit shiny which may not compliment those with oily skin, but people could still rock the dewy look which works for hotter weather. Even so, I don't see why you couldn't top it off with a matte powder after the mist has dried if you don't like the shininess that comes with heavy application.Bottom line -- this thing isn't a miracle worker, but it is a great tool for those who want their makeup to last longer throughout the day. I'm always impressed with the quality and price of e.l.f. cosmetics and this is no exception. For the price, you really can't go wrong. Even if it's not your go-to spray, it's not a bad thing to throw in your purse or have in travel bag. Definitely glad I tried this one. « less

Dewy Finish

Just about every makeup artist I watch on Youtube uses some makeup setting spray and I wanted to try one first without having to spend before I potentially invested in a more expensive one. I absolutely love this product! I probably won't even bother with higher-end setting spray. I have combination skin and typically prefer a matte finish because I'm always worried about looking oily. This setting spray gives a beautiful dewy finish (which I was surprised I liked) without making me look greasy. It as moisture to my skin so my problem areas don't dry out during the day and my makeup doesn't crease as much throughout the day (it still does slightly crease). I highly recommend this for anyone looking for a dewy face without the worry of looking oily.

Dewy skin from inside out.

I have dry skin, this mist is my saviour! How I can't live without it? I have a few sprays in the morning before leaving home, and I keep a spare bottle at work to deal with the super dry air conditioned office environment. I have been wary of applying "full makeup" with layers of powdery products on my face, for the fear of dryness and unnatural cakey looking. Well, NOT ANY MORE after I discovered this mist! It keeps me hydrated and set powdery products in place on my face; also transforms the powdery look into a dewy, natural look. I get a dewy skin from inside out, just love it! E.L.F Please never discontinue this product or I riot! Only issue is the spray head, it does not give the finest ever mist you'd dream of. But hey, to me, the formula is the most important part of a beauty product. With some practice you can work around the mechanics, or you can simply buy a replacement spray head if you really consider it important.

My 61 year-old skin is dewy and fresh again!

I have combination and sun-damaged skin from a lifetime of tanning; I'm a beach/swimming pool lover set in my ways. I wanted a make-up setting product but hate the matte look and also cannot stand the "shiny, overly slick" look either. This mist is amazing; my skin looks healthy, dewy and rejuvenated. Just be sure to spray from a distance and go lightly or you will have a too-dewy/shiny look. I purposefully applied too much to see what would happen. This illuminating mist and set does not look "glittery" like back in the 80s when we actually put body and face glitter on ourselves. I just grabbed two more bottles after reading that it had been out of stock. This product is better suited to dry skin or combo skin, rather than for oily skin. It also does a great job of setting your face and eye make-up without being sticky or tacky. « less

Eh this is not what i hoped for. I went to Sephora a few months ago and got the travel size of the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray and instantly fell in love. It applied perfectly from the spray bottle and kept my makeup on ALL day. I have very dry skin so this also made my makeup look dewy instead of all cake like and dusty. I saw this makeup mist in Target and figured for so cheap, i should try it since the Urban Decay one is quite pricy. I tried it the next morning and the 1st thing i noticed was the awful spray applicator/pump. It squirts out the product in gobs and instead of it being a light mist all over your face, you only get the product in a harsh spray on one section of your face. I transferred the product into my Urban Decay Setting Spray bottle hoping this would solve the problem and it did. Many reviews mention an awful smell from this product. I, however could only smell this "smell" if i put my face directly up to the spray applicator. For me, smell really was not an issue. After a few hours of wearing this spray, my face became extremely greasy and oily. This was a shock to me since i have never had oily skin and my face has always been very dry. The greasy feel on my skin made all my makeup fade after just a few hours. When i use my Urban Decay one, my makeup stays on for over 8 hours. The only thing I like about Elf's Setting Spray is that for a few hours, it did make my face have a dewy effect on my skin. Overall, I would not buy this product again.
