She says it doesn’t dry out her skin in the winter and keeps the makeup in place all day. Another advantage is it takes just one quick spray and the makeup is kept in place.

This customer has been using the setting spray for two days and says it seems to be keeping the makeup in place. She leaves in the morning and then when she comes home at night the makeup is just as it was when she left in the morning. Her oily foundation would make her mascara run under her eyes in the past giving her that crying look. But, with this spray that no longer happens. She is glad she tried this product because it is working for her. This client likes this spray because it leaves her makeup in place and makes it look matte which she likes. She will continue to use the product a little bit does the trick and it will last a long time.

The next customer originally gave the product a two-star rating because she did not see it working to hold the makeup on. She sprayed it on after applying her foundation and it did not work. She has oily and sensitive skin and she really needs something that will work. She tried a different approach and applied the spray before she put her foundation on and the stuff worked great. It really held her makeup in place and she will buy the product again. She took a picture of the makeup on after 4 hours it was all intact. She says the makeup stays on now for 12 hours instead of 10 hours.

This young lady went to the prom and in the sun her makeup looked like it was caked on too thick which made her very nervous. Her makeup artist did not moisturize her face or prep it and she has dry skin. The makeup did not absorb into her skin. She took out this product and sprayed half the bottle on her face hoping it would set the makeup. She was pleasantly surprised that within minutes her face transformed and became seamless and smooth. The spray really worked for her. It delivered her from an embarrassing circumstance. It held her makeup in place for 12 hours even her mom complimented her on the longevity of her makeup staying set. She really lokes this product. What could have been a disaster turned out well for her?

organic green tea helps to keep makeup in place

Benefits and Uses: This product has been widely used as over 1300 reviews have been written concerning it. It has an unusual feature in that it has organic green tea in it. How organic green tea helps to keep makeup in place is a mystery. It has been revised to spray out in a fine thin mist and it smells as good as ever. It is fast drying and it will never leave a sticky film on your skin and you will love the natural scent.

The spray will set your makeup in the morning and it will stay in place throughout the day. The company encourages you to use the spray all day long. This may be unnecessary and a waste of product. It could get expensive having to buy the spray all the time as well. It has tea extract, MSM, and DMAE to keep your skin hydrated and feeling moist all day.

It is practical to use for weddings and special occasions to reduce the need for touch-ups. This is funny because the company encourages you to use the spray all day long to keep your skin moist. It is a quick fix for dry, tight and uncomfortable feeling skin.

It is safe to use for all skin types and it is free of paraben, harmful chemicals and it is not used on animals. Why would you use a makeup setting spray on animals? Animals don’t wear makeup. It is a mystery why companies say a product is not used on animals when it wouldn’t be used on animals in the first place,

This is outstanding customer service and this company really has confidence in their spray. They will give you an unheard of lifetime money back guarantee if you are not fully satisfied with the spray. Who gives lifetime money back guarantees? This is very refreshing to see this company offer such a generous money back guarantee. This product must be extremely good for the company to make this kind of guarantee and it seems to be a very popular spray indeed.

long-lasting setting spray

Benefits and Uses: This product gave no benefit or ingredient description. The bottle says long-lasting setting spray.

It would be beneficial if the person knew ahead of time. This could put a person in a compromising position health-wise if they are allergic to the ingredients and don’t know about it.

Feedback: This customer really likes this spray. The only thing she doesn’t like about the spay is the smell. But she can only smell it after she first applies it to her makeup. The spray really keeps her makeup in place and she says it works better than another quality brand. She is happy she switched from that spray to this switch. The only problem with the scent issue is she may not smell it on herself but what if other people can smell it on her? this customer does not like the wet look of makeup. She says this spray keeps her makeup looking subdued and in place. She sprays it on before she goes out and night and she is set for the night. Other people rave about other makeup setting sprays but this is the only one she will buy it works so well for her.

This customer is a waitress and she is always around hot food. She is constantly on the run but this spray holds her eyeshadow in place and she doesn’t get a shiny forehead. She says the product changed her life. She is very happy with the setting spray. This customer says she sprays the setting product as the last step right before she finishes the makeup preparation. She even sprays it on her eyebrows to set them in place. She claims that if you spray too much on the product will make your makeup look like it is cracking? She only sprays 4 squirts on her face and the spray holds the makeup in place for 12 hours. This even in 90 degrees weather and for this reason it works wonders for her. Another customer said this spray kept her makeup in place for about 11 hours and still looked great after eleven hours. It works great for her. The only complaint she has is that she wishes it had a scent.

Another user says this product is effective for any type of makeup. Be sure to hold the spray bottle 10 to 12 inches from your face. A couple of squirts and you are ready to go. Another customer says she is always on the run and at least a couple times a day she has to run to the bathroom to blot makeup that has run from her face. With this spray, she sprays it on and she has no more running makeup it works great.

This client gave it a four-star rating but her review says she thinks it is a three-star rating. She basically said you get what you pay for. It doesn’t hold her makeup and she does have oily skin. It also stings her skin but she conceded it lasts longer than usual setting spray. It leaves makeup stains and t doesn’t last all day. She said it is good for if you are on the go and you can endure the product for a couple of weeks. This is a shining review of the product. One other customer did not like it at all and did not the way it made her face look matte. She likes to have her makeup shine on her face. This spray is definitely not for her.

effective in keeping the makeup unspoiled and stay intact on the face

Benefits and Uses: This spray says it is a matte spray and that is to the extent the product description reads for the product. Again, no ingredients and no benefits listed. It is an injustice to the customers to not be given product, ingredients and benefits description. Part of the decision-making process is to be able to see the ingredients that are listed for the product. The customer needs to see what ingredients are active that make the spray effective in keeping the makeup unspoiled and stay intact on the face. The benefits would be helpful to see because they may or may not benefit the customer. For instance, they say it is a matte finish spray. It will leave the makeup with a dull finish as opposed to a shiny finish. Some people like the matte finish others don’t like a matte finish to their makeup. These people like to have a shine on their makeup.

Feedback: This customer had to stop using the product because she has oily skin and after she applied it she broke out in acne. Needless, to say she didn’t like the product. Another customer tried the spray and she saw no difference in the way her makeup stayed in place. Yet another customer said usually the company’s products are high-quality this one is not. She thinks it is an oiling spray and not a setting spray.

Another client gave it a four-star rating but the review was more of a two-star rating. She has used a lot of setting sprays but this one works for her. It is not above average in the way it holds her makeup in place. Another thing is that she wears light makeup and doesn’t put a lot of foundation on her face. So, will this product hold makeup for a person who wears a lot of makeup? She sounded like she was not a big fan of this spray despite the fact she gave it a four-star rating.


You are now prepared to go out and make an informed decision on which makeup setting spray to buy. This article has covered some sprays that are very popular receiving thousands of reviews.
