I have tried so many setting sprays, including most of the high end ones, and this is actually one of the best! I would say it's in the top 4 that I've tried. I have oily mature skin and I definitely find that it helps to control shine & increase longevity of my make up. However, the smell is really bad! Like, dirty socks bad... I have to spray it & then hold my breath for 20 seconds! However, I will re purchase, as it's such a fantastic product for the price point.

In the middle on this one
I live in the wet tropics and during the summer wet season with extremely high humidity I’ll try anything that professes to set one’s makeup. This goes on well and didn’t feel thick or sticky nor did it dry out my skin but, under extreme humidity it didn’t work well. It worked a little better during the dry season but I’m thinking it’s suited to use in a cooler climate, won’t be purchasing again.
Didn’t seem to do anythingI’ve used this product a few times. Didn’t seem to do anything. Didn’t hold my makeup on longer or set things nicely. It was a light mist and was refreshing but that’s about it.

I don't think it really did muchI don't think it did much.
It didn't take powderyness away and it didn't keep make up on for longer than normal.
Better setting sprays on the market for similar price ranges.
I did reuse the spray bottle to hold water to dampen brushes or beauty blenders as I liked the spray amount.
Decent quality for priceNot the best on the market but good for its price. Mist could be a bit lighter and it smells a bit weird but it last well through out the day. Wouldn't recommend for big events or hot weather
its okIts really nothing exceptional, after four hours, my makeup still ran a little bit but i'll still keep using it because its cheap. I dont notice feeling anything on my skin which is good, but at the same time Im not entirely sure if it does anything. I dont usually wear a setting spray so I guess it doesnt really matter to me lol. If you wear a lot of heavy makeup, I would reccommend a stronger setting spray, but if you wear a light amount, this product might work out better for you.
good but not greatI bought this and I can't say that it does anything so special in comparison on the competing market, but not bad.
doesn't do anythingI bought this spray because it is affordable and has a lot of good reviews, but unfortunately it doesn't seem to do much for me. I have oily skin and my make up seems to last the same amount of time with or without the spray.
not a fandoesn't really do anything but most setting spray don't besides the urban decay ones
No lasting powerIt does a nice job of adding hydration to the skin and settling powders however does not add any longevity or durability to makeup. Works well in the way that Mac fix+ does, but don't recommend if you're looking for a fixing spray.
great for a newbie to makeupthis would be great to start off with if you've never used a setting spray before, but as for someone who is very into makeup, i don't see this being repurchased, my makeup wasn't set all throughout the day. wasn't exactly the results i was hoping for, and the smell of the product isn't very inviting.
GreatOut of all the setting sprays I’ve used this is by far my favourite, I work in a high paced environment & can feel when my make up starts to shift but I’ve noticed with this that, that doesn’t happen at all, would purchase again!
HmmmI used the product and found that nothing really happened, my highlight and glitter lids popped a bit more but my face powders didn't really blend together and my makeup did not last longer at all. For the price its ok but its not a setting spray.
Good priceGood to spritz on makeup or on brush to make eye shadow a darker pigment. Great price.
EhI tried this setting spray and I really didn't notice anything different, my makeup lasted the same amount of time as if I hadn't used it. But I guess for the price its not bad.
Really good but STINKYI have tried so many setting sprays, including most of the high end ones, and this is actually one of the best! I would say it's in the top 4 that I've tried.

Best setting sprayI have combination/dry skin. I have tried lots of setting sprays of various prices. None of them were amazing. This one works really really well, especially considering the price. In terms of value for money, this is definitely it, hence why I personally give it five stars. Recommended by me!
good!cheap and does it's job!
Great, cheap everyday productPleasantly surprised by this; keeps my makeup looking fresh all day and is great for the price!
Can't complainI think for the low price this isn't a bad setting spray. It doesn't leave any residue on my skin and definitely improves the longevity of my makeup. Though I haven't tried many setting sprays so don't have much to compare to.
Great setting powerThis mist helps my make up stay on all day with no annoying side effects!
OkThis isn't the best setting spray out there, even on the cheaper end of things- the nyx setting spray and maybelline one are much better, but this does the job. I think it does help the weartime of makeup and it helps soak powder into the cream products which is good.
4 star for the smellI use this as my every day setting spray and it does the trick. I have no problems with oil and don't need to touch up through the day. I wouldn't use this for a big day or night but it is an excellent alternative for daily wear. Nice that I feel like my skin can still breathe through it
didn't work for meI have fairly oily skin and was hoping that this would help my makeup last longer without getting that oily sheen and it slipping off. I've tried it under foundation, over foundation, under powder, over powder and both before and after make up and haven't found its made any difference unfortunately. Would love to find a product that actually works for me as I've tried a bunch now to no avail.
Average product but does it's job at a great priceI have oily / combination acne-prone skin and use this spray daily following full coverage foundation application.
The spray does it's job and keeps my makeup somewhat in place but I do find myself needing touch ups by midafternoon anyway so doesn't last super long.
I am not very fond of the smell but it has a pretty clean ingredient list with some kickass skincare ingredients that are a plus for my acne which I love! And it is such an affordable product that I probably would consider repurchasing.
Overall it is my go to spray for my daily makeup but I would not use if for more heavy full face makeup setting.
Good and affordable!This is a good setting spray for the price! I feel it helps my makeup last longer compared to the days I don't use it. I have oily skin, which still starts to shine by the end of the day but the spray definitely gives me more time before that happens!
Decent setting sprayI have no complaints about this setting spray. I find when I use it my makeup lasts a lot longer than without it. I start to get a little bit oily throughout the day, but not enough for it to make my makeup look any different. Good product for a good price.
it was alrightsmells a bit funky. packaging a bit flimsy, had to transfer it into a spray bottle. did the job though (i think). if you're new to the setting spray game, it's not bad. if you have been through skindinavia and gerard cosmetics, this won't please you. maybe good for just days at work or something.
Happy customerI have oily skin and have found that my foundation sweats through by noon. Was looking for an affordable setting spray to stop my make up separating especially the T zone. This definitely did the job. Very happy. May actually try the matte version
OkayThis is great. Works well even in warmer weather and it doesn't make your your face feel sticky
Not sure...Not sure how I feel about this one...I read really good reviews about it here and on other websites about how it makes makeup look less powdery. It does smell a bit funny when it first goes on. I haven't had any problems with the spray bottle. Not really sure how effective this is but was pretty cheap so don't mind too much.
Great valueCheap and does what it claims.
LOVE ITI keep this gem in my handbag - I love spraying it throughout the day for a dewy, fresh look.
It's also an essential item for when I'm travelling.
It's okayI don't think this sets my make up well at all. But I do love this to keep in my hand bag and spray it on to freshen up my makeup during the day!
No noticeable differenceNot a winner for my combo skin with oily T zone. Perhaps an initial 'setting' effect but it didn't last. There are others for marginally more $ that are more effective.
UnsureI bought this mist reading all the great reviews. I have used it a good 10 or so times but haven't really noticed the difference in my makeup when using without than with. It doesn't leave me greasy when sprayed on or ruin my makeup but doesn't keep makeup looking fresh at the end of the day. Unsure if I would purchase this product again..
Works a treat.This is great. Works well even in warmer weather and it doesn't make your your face feel sticky.
Cheap and effectiveAs someone who prefers my makeup to look dewy and natural, I abhor setting powder. For that reason, fixing spray is my best friend, if I don't want my makeup melting off my face come midday, and elf's is the best bargain I've ever found; it costs peanuts, and locks product beautifully.
As lovely as the luxury brands like Urban Decay and Skindinavia are, I will always come back to this little pocket-change wonder.
I certainly wouldn't call it a *dupe* for anything more expensive, but it does the job well enough to be worth the savings several times over.
For a good, trusty day-to-day setting spray, it's hard to go past this little beauty.
Excellent setting spraymake my make up stay in place, love it!!!!
Best dupe for fix+I gave up on Mac fix + after I realised that tested on animals. This is the best, most affordable substitute! And it is 1/4 of the price!
I use this for my shimmer shadows and to set my face. Works well with my combination skin and I plan to always have one in my makeup draw.
PerfectionI prefer this setting spray to the Urban Decay All Nighter and the Skindinavia Bridal Finishing Spray. It's alcohol free so isn't as drying as other sprays, gives your makeup a beautiful finish and makes it last for hours. It has a very fine mist and the size (60mL) makes it portable. It is insanely cheap and an amazing setting spray!
