        Comments about ULTA Matte Makeup Setting Spray:

        I've never really tried the Ulta brand cosmetics so I was eager but this was straight trash. First off it's not even like a mist it's a big spray that ends up making your makeup worse. It smelled amazing but it was sticky like hairspray and ultimately just made my face tacky and gross. Wouldn't buy again and it had no matte effect

                        If you keep your eyes closed while you mist it 6-8 inches away from your face, it shouldn't be an issue! This is just recommended to avoid any irritation. :-)
