Most Helpful Positive Review Truly keeps my makeup locked in
This setting spray is one of the only things that keeps my makeup locked in cuz my skin gets super oily and I sweat pretty easily too. I've mostly used a bunch of pretty useless cheapish setting sprays and then I tried a sample of all nighter I got for my birthday and that locked my makeup in better than I thought possible. Being a poor college student and not being able to use a sample size forever, I was looking for what would be the best affordable option and this was the best option I found to try out. It honestly sets better than UD All-Nighter for me. It feels a bit tightening, like All-Nighter, but it is just so good and useful for me. Put makeup on at like 6:30 AM and it lasted past 7 or 8 PM (took it off cuz i don't like wearing makeup too long, but I bet it would've lasted me til 10 or so ). If you have super oily skin (or are particularly sweaty), then I totally reccommend it. I also have super sensitive skin and I didn't have any issues with it, which I was kinda worried about with the grapefruit extract cuz I have citrus sensitivities.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not matte!
I have combination skin that starts dry but gets oily by the end of the day. I prefer setting sprays to powders because of this. Obviously the holy grail is UD Allnighter, but it's so expensive. I love charcoal products, so I bought this on a whim. Pros: Smells amazing, has a great sprayer, and doesn't sting. Cons: Doesn't keep you matte AT ALL. My face was oily within a few hours, and my makeup was literally sliding off. I would expect this from a hydrating setting spray, not one that touts itself as matte. For a drugstore mattifying spray, go with the NYX one. I'll be switching back immediately.

I have combination skin. I get shiny in my "T" zone, I use this before and after makeup application. Most days I only use concealer, under my eyes and to cover various red areas then set it with translucent powder. I noticed it has helped control the amount of shine through the day. I wouldn't say it's the best, I don't believe there ever will be? I do have to blot or put more translucent powder on a few hours after. But so far, I'm pretty happy with the results this has given me.
Best setting spray!

I enjoyed this more than the regular Milani setting spray because it kept my face matte all day! I wish they made this in a larger bottle because I'd buy it!
This really does a great job for an all day wear.
Caitlin from Texas
I use this everyday, its very light and stays well. More specifically it helps with eyeliner on hooded eyes!
My go-to setting spray
Dg4f_ from Childress, TX
Probably my most used if not go-to setting spray. The fine mist application and quality wear throughout the day keeps me coming back to this product. After I'm done with my makeup look I will set it with this spray. I have no complaints on smell, but I wish they would come out with a larger sized bottle!
TT from South Dakota
I have such oily skin so my makeup always slips around and most setting sprays just make me dewier! This is amazing. I don't find it really mattifies more, but instead locks your makeup in and doesn't alter the finish and somehow makes the makeup melt into your skin even better than without it! It really helps to keep my oils at bay and helps my makeup to last longer as well. Much better then some of the UD all nighter sprays, ill never go back to those after this one. I just wish the bottle was bigger!!
sprayed black specks all over face

i was so excited about this setting spray and i shook it up and sprayed it but it sprayed a bunch of black specks of charcoal all over my face. and then i sprayed my hand and it was like black tinted water around the edges of where i sprayed :(
10 -10 RECOMMEND
10-10 RECOMMEND from Florida
I'm 50 years old and have tried several matte sprays and this is by far the best. The key is to not spray directly AT your face. Spray from above and let it fall. My makeup lasted ALL day especially my eye makeup it remained flawless!!
My go to spray.

Cass from Alabama
I have really oily skin and this setting spray really helped to lock in my foundation and help it last longer. It is one of the best setting sprays I have used and I will be purchasing again!
Taking it back
Lizzie from Panama City Fl
I bought this spray in high hopes due to the fact that I love their foundation. But something was definitely wrong with the spraying part of the product. It sprayed me in the face like a water bottle LOL
Not a fan
Roni from East Coast
I bought this one because I have oily skin & the original one also to see which I liked better. This one makes me so oily fast no matter what i do. The original one is great.
Lasts through ANYTHING :-)

Picture this: you're getting ready to go to a house music show. You want ur music to stay all night, you pull out ole reliable. Milani Matte Setting Spray. I did my makeup and set it at 5pm, and it is currently 11am the next day. Lashes are in place, my bold wing liner didn't budge. And it's all thanks to Milani. As I sit in my Uber ready to get back to my house, I can't help but feel great full for a setting spray that lasted through my night and a shack, and had me wake up in my makeup still cute as to not scare the person next to me this morning. Thanks girlies xoxo.
One of the best setting sprays ever!
Floriana from Undisclosed
One of my favorite setting sprays ever. Keeps me from getting oily all day. This is a must have in my every day routine.
Best matte setting spray!
Krista from NJ
I don't typically have oily skin but once I put foundation on I'm slick within an hour. I did a ton of research and decided to try this. I'm amazed at how long, and well, this spray keeps me matte. Plus it actually feels good on the skin, no breakouts and has a fine mist. Highly recommend!
4th purchase of this product
bmt223 from Tulsa, OK
This is an amazing product and I will continue to buy it as long as they make it. I can definitely tell the mornings I forget to put this on because it helps my make up stay in place, throughout the day, whenever I do remember to use it!
mP from New York, NY
The spray has a black pigment and looks bad on my fair skin.
Jenna from St. Charles, IL
This is hands down my new favorite setting spray. It really does make my skin look matte after applying it on top of my makeup. The spray is quite aggressive and takes a while to get used to, but besides that, it is awesome. Highly recommend!!
Faith from Tx
Love it! This is the only setting spray I've found that actually makes it matte and stays put pretty much all day.
Easy 6 hours
Victoria from Toronto, Canada
I spray it once under my makeup, and once over. This gives me easy 6 hours wear (my mascara / eyeliner smudges a little, but that is quite understandable), then the shine kicks in. 6 hours works for me, but I can see how it doesn't work for other people
Ashley from US
I always use the make it last setting spray but all they had was the charcoal. It makes me cakey and doesn't spray evenly.
Mochachic from Columbus Ohio
I can tell the difference when I use this spray to set my makeup and when I do not because my makeup lasts longer with it.
Love It!! But it!
Helens from Arizona
I have crazy oily skin, this locks it in. Love it!!
Jelena from Undisclosed
I put it on after I've finished a full face and let it dry. It helps lock in moisture and keeps my face looking fresh all day!
Horrible setting spray!
SB from Fort Wayne
First off, I LOVE Milani products and their illumination setting spray is awesome! But I decided just to try this one because at the time the store did not have my normal go to spray. I've noticed that ever since I started using this spray there will be areas on my faces where my foundation looks cakey and splotchy! Definitely will not buy again!
Too much oil
Arlette from Undisclosed
I must have misunderstood what this item was used for I thought it was locked in do your makeup and took away the shine but it is full of oil very disappointed
