Comments about ULTA Matte Makeup Setting Spray:

For the price this really is a good deal. It lasts long, helps makeup last long - everything it's supposed to do. Looks natural on the face. Nothing to complain about really. I will say it comes out a bit clumpy/heavy when spraying it. You feel the drops - it isn't light and misty like pricier setting sprays. But, in the end, it gets the job done for a fraction of the price.

            Comments about ULTA Matte Makeup Setting Spray:

            I applied my makeup like normal, and at the end I was excited to use this and have my make up last the whole night. However, I went to spray it, and I did a test spray to make sure it would apply as a mist and evenly. After about 10 sprays it wasn't improving so I just went for it. It was not a mist at all. I'm hoping it's just the bottle, so I'm going to try changing the bottle and hopefully that will help.

              The spray is not a mist. It can make it spray on uneven wear parts of the face gets a lot wetter. Also tends to feel sticky if you get to much on trying to cover the whole face.

                    I use a different brand's setting spray and I love it, but it's expensive. I wanted to try the house brand to see how it does. It seems work okay but it's a really heavy, wet spray. I may try it in the container my other brand uses to see if it will have a lighter mist.
