      I wanted to see if this product helped my daily makeup last longer and so far it has. It's really hot in Florida and I'm someone who perspires a lot and this does help the makeup stay put and last longer even in the emense heat.

          Comments about ULTA Matte Makeup Setting Spray:

          I didn't really care for this product. I sprayed it all over my face to set my makeup but way too much product comes of of the sprayer. I switched the sprayer pump but it's still the same. So because too much spray comes out it looks very patchy when it dries on scattered areas.

                    Comments about ULTA Matte Makeup Setting Spray:

                    I started using this as a primer, but it turns out my skin loves the aloe, cucumber, and other great extracts in it. I often find myself mixing it with moisturizer all of the time because it just makes my skin smooth and beautiful. It does work pretty well as a primer/setting spray and keeps the shine off of my oily skin for most of the day. The only con I have is the packaging, as the spray nozzle is cheap and does not spray evenly. This isn't that much of an issue for me since I do not use it that much as a setting spray. If you do, I would suggest putting it in a better bottle.

                      This product smells really great, kind of like cucumber which gives a refreshing feel to the face when you used it. The only downside is the mist isn't as fine as other drug store settings sprays I've used, it kind of comes out a bit clumpy and makes your face feel really wet. It also doesn't have a great spray range, so it's hard to evenly get your face. But for someone who just needs to set blush/highlight/eyeshadow it works great for the price point.
