    Comments about ULTA Makeup Setting Spray:

    I have super sensitive skin and I haven't found a primer that doesn't irritate me... SO I tried this as a primer spray and finished with it as well. So far so good! This dries nicely as a primer spray and still lets everything apply and blend smoothly. I bought it during a buy 2 get 2 free sale, so for $20 bucks I got 3 of these and the dual pack of the Ulta beauty blenders!!!!!! Frugal for life! ;)

      Comments about ULTA Makeup Setting Spray:

      I've used this twice so far and each time I've been appreciative of how fresh and clean this spray feels after applying my makeup. It keeps my makeup looking fresh and lasting longer, exactly what it's supposed to do. Although it says to avoid eyes, I have sprayed it on my closed eyes and had no ill effects. I will definitely buy this again.

          Comments about ULTA Makeup Setting Spray:

          This is the first makeup setting spray I've ever used, and as far as I can tell it works good! It's very light and has a very mild, clean, smell. It seems to manage my natural oily skin somewhat, and my makeup does appear to stay in place all day.

              I haven't really noticed quite a change in the set of my makeup. The nozzle squirts in one spot on your face so I put it in a different bottle. Have bought 2 now think i will try out Nyx.

                  Alot of people love this, so it must be great for some, but I would never buy it again. It sprays out uneven and I get puddles of it on some spots of my face. It doesn't make my makeup stay on at all, it pretty much ruins the 3 hours I spend on my routine. I have SLAYED haha, and then go to spray this stuff, and all my work looks like a hot mess due to the stream of liquid that spews out randomly... UGH!

                        This spray should be applied directly to the face. Spray 6-8 inches away from the face before or after make-up application. Keep away from the eyes.
