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.

The spray has a black pigment and looks bad on my fair skin.

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!!

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

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
Another item I will always have on hand!

Setting spray that smells good, doesn't leave you shiny and feels fresh.
Only setting spray I use
Rachael from Undisclosed
Love this setting spray! Keeps makeup in place and can use it even on my very sensitive skin. It is fragranced, which I don't love, but it fades quickly.
Beegee from Alhambra
I have used this product for over four years and it feels like every year it gets better. The only thing I don't like is that if you don't use this without applying primer on your make up first it wont do justice and it's own
Great for everyday !
CBing from GA
I use over my everyday look for work and it helps keep me mattified. I don't care for the slight smell.
W O W!
Kaspie from Ohio
I'm speechless! This locks my makeup into place flawlessly and makes all the difference. I didn't really think setting spray made a difference because I would buy high end ones and they seemed to do nothing but this one is better and even super affordable! I love this stuff 😭💗
Tootsie from Albuquerque
This product did not keep my make up on. I applied make up one morning, got busy later in the day cleaning my house. Of course I started to sweat and ALL my make up started melting. I thought a setting spray was supposed to keep make up in place? This did not do justice. It will be going back to the store once the quarantine is over.
Even better than morphe spray
Larcat from Central florida
I have very sensitive, pale oily skin. I love charcoal products for absorbing excess oil. This works beautifully not only to set my makeup but controlling that oil too, without irritating my skin.
Ash from Buffalo
Great price for a great product. Sprays evenly and looks matte. Make sure you shake before use. Will buy again!
Wouldn't purchase again
Gigi from New York
Wouldn't recommend unless you have Extreme oily skin, it smells like fish & left white patches on my face! 🥺😔
Would recommend it.

I like how it sets my make up.
Magical Matte Primer
Marrashaughne from Undisclosed
Where do I start y'all? This is magic in a little black bottle!! I have used a gel primer a few years ago and it didn't seem to work well. However, my skin has become so oily (especially in summer) and then I learned that my makeup oxidizes? Which causes it to look grey and or separate. Then I read the reviews on this awesome product and guess what y'all? It works so well for me!
Makeup stays, oily patches go!! No more greyish cast to my skin. I do a very light patting with tissue if my t-zone starts to shine and that's it. It smells great too!
PLEASE keep your eyes closed while spritzing on this product!!!
Darline from Bronx
Have been my go to since purchasing it. Leaves my face matte can't wait to apply in summer. I have combo skin some oily/dry skin. No breakout so far it's been good.
Tonya from Undisclosed
My reason for only giving the Milani Make it last Matte spray 3 stars is because it doesn't eliminate the shine as advertised. However, it does set my foundation very well.
Sammii from TX
It doesn't spray right n it left white spots on my face plus left black spots on my shirt!!!! Wouldn't buy again!!!
Will definitely buy again
