Most Helpful Positive Review My 5th purchase of E.L.F. Makeup setting spray
I have been using E.L.F. setting spray since Fall 2014!
The only thing I'm not wild about is the actual pump spray. So I always pour into my own cobalt blue spray bottle that sprays more evenly and looks prettier on my vanity.
Most Helpful Critical Review Just Water
Wanted to try a setting spray but didn't want to test out an expensive brand. Saw this and thought I'd give it a go. When I used this, my makeup actually creased more. There were crease lines on my nose from where I had sunglasses on later that day, and my smile lines were more defined than ever before. This actually made my foundation slide more than with nothing. I used it for a couple days but saw no change. Basically paying for water.

Works fine. I don't see much shimmer. Recently started mixing all my loose setting powders that are not shimmer into one big container. And actually using it. So a must to dampen the dry dessert the powder makes my face to come back to life helps. Heck, I even refill the sprayers with water and it works fine. So if u have to travel take an empty bottle an refill from the tap. Just take one with a sprayer you like as some just suck an spittle products. Oh. It's ok but doesn't "illuminate". Don't expect it to make you shimmer.

This is cute. It does leave shimmer all over the face.
Love this stuff
CrystaliahD from Texas
It is lightweight and long lasting. I have oily skin and I prefer this over Urban Decays setting spray. My makeup lasts so much longer and it dries my powder down beautifully. You can use it before or after makeup. On my 3rd bottle.
Sarah from Scranton, PA
I was looking for a spray to set my face and also bring a little more glow to my pale complexion. I got compliments on how I was glowing and it even held up to some intense crying.
MY GO TO
thriftygrrl from HVNY
Literally one of my faves! I do a layer after I put on my Fenty foundation and one last layer after I've completed the rest of my makeup. Lasts all day and my makeup never smudges.
I like the product
April from Oak Ridge, TN
I like the spray but wish it was bigger. It does work well
E.Lima from Dallas, Texas
I got this because I was recommended this for a good setting spray, and I'm thoroughly impressed with the results. the mist set my makeup very well and lasted at least 8 hours. the only real setback was that it smelled terrible, but besides that I'd give it a 7-8/10
Nia from Somewhere in the US
LOVE it. Definitely helps my makeup last and can keep it on for hours at a time. I originally was hesitant to buy this because I don't like 'illuminating sprays'; I prefer natural finishes and don't like to lean too much towards matte or illuminating sprays (especially since they can be glittery). But this spray leaves a natural finish and helps my powders and makeup blend in beautifully. HOWEVER make sure that you buy the spray with aloe, green tea, etc. I grabbed the original spray and it smells AWFUL; the second ingredient is alcohol. It works but next time I'll be sure to grab the one with aloe, not the original.
Emma from Chicago
I couldn't decide between the "illuminating" and "matte" but this turned out to be the perfect balance of both. It doesn't make my skin look too shiny or dewy and holds up reasonably well throughout the day. It's no miracle worker when it comes to sweat and heat but it does the job to keep my foundation in place and balances out the finish of my "matte" foundation. One time I got a bottle that didn't spritz evenly so I just transferred it to a different bottle. Bonus: I use the cleaned out bottles to spritz my succulents.
Jade from Appleton
I have used this for 7 years! It's the best drugstore setting spray I've ever bought! Works very well.
Great setting spray for the $$
Sarah C. from Dallas Texas
Love this spray, super fine mist is awesome and leaves a slightly dewy finish.
Keep my make up in place til I started sweating

I will continue to use when i go out but not to work
The mist is perfect
Nina from Colorado
I love this setting spray and it mists perfectly and evenly. I prefer this sprayer to the M.A.C fix+ and the Urban Decay All Nighter.
Madison from Pennsylvania
I have dry/normal and sensitive skin. Spray makes me feel refreshed and did NOT give me rashes, little bumps or break me out. I love this for a glow from within/subtle glow. Though if you apply too much it does make your makeup slide a bit which can make it hard to reapply throughout the day. Don't use more than 3-4 sprays! Does what it says, and can't beat the price!!
Awesome setting spray
Ayanna from United States
Great setting spray, doesn't make your makeup look differently but helps it stay for longer.
Melrose10 from Lincoln, NE
My skin had a very bad reaction to this spray. After one use, my skin became very textured with tiny bumps all over my face. I also experienced redness and sensitivity. Be careful if you have sensitive skin!
Great setting spray
kit1989 from Montclair,NJ
I love this setting spray, it's a great price so you can't beat it plus it does what it's supposed to. As far as it's being illuminating, that would be up for debate. You would think you would have a shimmering effect but it's just plain.
I've bought this many of times.
Burch from Medina,OH
This is a great lower end product, I pair it with my high end sprays as well as use it alone...
Fav & Constant Make Up Item
Rehtse from New York, NY
This has been in my make up kit for two years now and I could not be happier! I use a light hand with makeup and prefer this mist over the harder duty versions other brands carry. Plus its gentle on my skin, and leaves a dewy finish.
Barely sets at all!
Jenn from Pennsylvania
I gave this product a try, because I figured, why spend a fortune if I have to. Well, it ended up being a waste of $4, bc it didn't set my makeup too well. It probably stayed on 30% better than without any setting spray at all. A few friends recommended Anastasia's Dewy Setting Spray, so I'm going to try that. I'd rather spend the extra money for a product that works.
Yes!!! Yes!!! Yes!!!
Td from Castle Rock
I absolutely love this mist! I spray around 8 pumps and it sets my makeup so smoothly, with a glow, and without weighing down my makeup. My makeup holds up for almost an entire day...(Flight attendant here) and work days can be very long. I use before I apply mascara...which is the last thing I apply. If you apply Mascara prior to spray, the Mascara tends to transfer to the top of eyelids. However, even with that...I don't see it as a con as there is a way around. Mascara last.
Luminous and long lasting
Lo from Hesperia, Ca
I bought this on a whim as I was going out to a very nice bar experience that was cocktail dress only and would be a 10 hour day once I finally got home.
I needed something that would hold my makeup together and help my skin stay moisturized as I usually have a lot of dry/flaky/patchy foundation throughout the day. This spray not only gave me an instant glowing complexion, it helped my makeup stay on for hours which is pretty unheard of for me. This is definitely a keeper.
