Most Helpful Positive Review Love this setting spray; not the sprayer!
I love this setting spray! It gives a nice, fresh, dewy glow to the complexion. Also helps with the staying power of my Original foundation. The only negative is the sprayer...it's not a fine mist so you can end up with droplets of product on the complexion. So far, has not left spots on the complexion. I hope bareMinerals fixes the sprayer.
Most Helpful Critical Review Awful!
I wish you guys had kept it simple. There is way too much mica in this. When you spray, there's chunks of glitter coming out. When people use setting spray, the whole purpose is to have a smooth, blurring finish. The excessive shimmer is causing unnecessary texture and visible pores. It's absolutely awful!
The formula was perfect with kombucha, apple, watermelon, lentil. Please take mica and whatever else the glitter/shimmer is. It's awful. And it's not just on my skin. I have tested it out on 10 different clients with different skin. It comes out awful every single time.

Thought this would be a great product, but i was very mistaken! The distribution of the product is very uneven, the consistency is viscous & odd instead of misty like setting sprays should be. Eventually the spray mechanism stopped working altogether.
Not worth the money
carnal.flower_ from Dallas, TX
Tried this spray so many times and HATED IT. It doesn't give me a dewy finish nor does it effect the longevity of my makeup! Not worth the money at all. Only good thing I can say is that the mist is nice, other than that I do not recommend.
hockeygal87 from WA
I wish I had read the neutral and negative reviews before buying this! The pump sprays out unevenly, and WAY too much product comes out. It's not a fine mist like many other setting sprays. This is NOT dewy or hydrating at all - it literally just sprays glitter all over my face even after shaking it a lot. Made my skin feel dry, mask-like, and itchy. Do not waste your money.
Luminescent & pleasantly scented
Junemarie from Junction City, Ks
I love the light scent of the spray, it's refreshing. I also love the overall radiance it gives to my skin. As for the slightly larger droplets that come out with the most, they're easily dispersed with light tapping. This spray works great to give my decolletage a nice radiance, too.
Dre from San Diego
Spray on face after makeup to set it, sets bare minerals powder well, but I don't get a dewy effect like I was hoping
Great formula... awful spray pump
Yesca707 from Sacramento
I used this once after applying my makeup knowing it would be an all nighter. Let me tell you... the next morning after a few hours of sleep... my makeup still looked like it did the day before! My friend's swore I woke up and redid my makeup. Nope. Just wish it came out like a true mist rather than raindrops hitting your face with force. If they redo their pump.. I will continue to buy!
An ACTUAL mist!
Em from Idaho
This sprays an actual mist unlike other sprays. Plus, it smells and looks amazing!
I have the large size...
JessieD42 from New York
I have the large size and the travel size and only the travel size works for me. The large size never gives me an even mist. I try spraying it to the side before and no matter what I do it comes out like a stream and squirts my face...leaving obvious lines and droplets on my face! And I do spray it 8-10 inches away.
I would buy again
Julie from Louisville
It works great!
Sabra from Indianapolis
This spray is great..... if you like your skin to look old. Apparently "dew" actually means "glitter specks all over your face". I didn't have the spray issue that other seemed to have- i did get a lot of product with just one spray but the mist itself was fine. This dries down very shimmery which isn't flattering all over the face at all, and for something that is supposed to give a dewy finish, it finishes very dry and doesn't seem to contribute to moisture levels at all.
Too shiny and bad spray applicator
Colleen77 from CO
I use a spray after bare minerals foundation, bronzer, blush, mineral veil to set the 4 powder layers. I was excited when bare minerals came out with their own...until I bought and tried it. Way too shiny....all that mica! And like many other reviewers the spray application is uneven.
Love this Spray!!
Melissa94 from Modesto, CA
I love this spray!! However, this is the only brand I have tried, but I like how it keeps my makeup from smearing or rubbing off and I don't have to worry on a long day.
Can't use it at all, the pump is so bad...
anii from Claremont, CA
I gave this product two stars because I liked how it felt when the employee convinced me to try it at the boutique. I went in to buy my favorite foundation and concealer, but I asked if I could get a setting powder and she insisted I try this spray instead. However, I cannot use the bottle I purchased because it doesn't spray AT ALL. Very disappointed that I cannot even use a product I bought, because sprays are all about convenience...Waste of money, which is never true of Bareminerals products. Wish I'd stuck to setting power!
Bekah from Oregon
Make sure you shake the bottle before you use it. Like almost any makeup setting spray, product settles at the bottom. As long as you shake the product up you will have great results. As far as the spitting went, it only happened to me when I was at the end of the bottle. After pressing where it spit on my face, my makeup looked just as good. This combined with the protective veil keeps my bare minerals makeup on all day with no separation.
Maggie from Casselberry Florida
This is a must have for finishing the look with Bare Minerals. It gives you a dewy finish and sets the makeup.
Best setting spray!
MaskQueen from New York, NY
I love this setting spray, great to spray over your make up or for a pick me up mid afternoon in the office. This spray hydrates your face without leaving it sticky. I highly recommend this spray. I love the clean ingredients. Go Bare!
Great...if you transfer to another spray bottle
Carley D from Detroit, MI
I like this product...after I used a recycled "elf" setting spray bottle to apply it. As some other reviews stated, when you use this spray it doesn't come out as a mist, but spits at your face.
Was Hoping for Better
phan601 from Nazareth, PA
I agree with earlier reviews about the spray nozzle spitting - which for setting makeup is a no-no. I have not returned it because I find that it is a nice hydrating mist for non-makeup days. I have since bought a bottle of Too Faced Hangover Spray and like it much better for a dewy finish to makeup.
Leaves White splotches on skin
Bee from BOSTON
Got this in my monthly play Box and rushed to review because I've never met a spray that leaves weird white glowey splotches on my skin. You have to the. Bled it out with a sponge. The nozzle sucks too.
Exactly what ive always needed!
NiNi01 from Dallas
So i decided to apply before makeup and i absolutely love it! Everything stays put until i remove it at the end of the day. Even in this Texas heat! I spray the first spray away and have yet to see experience the glitter problem. I would also add that i press my makeup instead of buffing. I hope this product stays!
Love this spray... besides the spray nozzle!
So close! from Minnesota
I use this product every morning to finish off my makeup and I've fallen in love with it, despite its nozzle downfalls. I don't find it to be too glittery, but it does tend to spray out unevenly in clumps, but you can blend them out with a light sweep of a brush or sponge. I also think this would look/work better on top of a powder foundation (I use liquid foundation and it ends up feeling "wet" or "sticky"). I still have a hard time going back to urban decay that definitely holds my makeup better simply because bareminerals gives my makeup the prettiest finish. This product is fairly new, so maybe the nozzle issue is being worked on. I hope!
What a Shame
Glow Lover from TX
I was on the search for a dewy setting spray that did not have alcohol. Since I found out my skin can not tolerate it or can't handle parabens. I was so excited when I saw this dewy finish and no alcohol. When I bought this there were only 2 reviews and both were pretty positive to be honest I do not see how. 1st of all the sprayer is just horrible just so bad. It spits at you and leaves drops all over your face do not use this unless you want to have to do redo your makeup every time. Next the glitter chunks, I am all about glow dewy healthy looking skin, this literally shoots pieces of glitter on your face. It is just pure sparkle I don't even see how this hydrating. It makes your makeup run if you try to many times. It is just not worth it. if you want a setting spray that gives a dewy finish without all the alcohol and who else knows what, go with the Anastasia BH Dewy Setting Spray so much better. If you want a natural finish Morphe Continuous setting spray they are much more worth than this.
Won't Leave Home Without It
Bartlett Barb from Bartlett, Illinois
About 4 months ago I wrote a rave review about this product. I've used it every single day since then. Just ordered a travel size to take on vacation with me. It gives me a bit of a glow and my makeup looks as good after work as it did in the morning. Great stuff.
Blondie from Florida
Shiney with strange glow effect
Expensive and disappointing
Best setting spray ever!
HerClassyCloset from Sierra Vista AZ
Everyone who says it's too glittery must not be following the directions and shaking it well before using it. I use this setting spray on top of Bare minerals Bare Pro foundation and Mineral Veil. If you actually shake the bottle like it says to, and spray several inches away from your face, I don't notice any extra glitter at all. It dries well, and holds my makeup perfectly in place. I'm a waitress and work long hours on the go with no breaks. During lunch or dinner rushes, things can get hot and sweaty. This is me, after a 13 hour double shift at work, and my makeup still looks flawless (and not glittery, except where I put it!). I'm wearing the Stila glitter and glow eyeshadow, and highlighter for my sparkles. It's not from the setting spray.
