Most Helpful Positive Review Worth it
As someone who has gotten into watching a lot of Sylvia Gani's YouTube videos to help perfect my makeup application, I found that her preference was the MAC setting spray. I don't have that kind of money to waste constantly as I am a senior in high school working a minimum-wage job and I have a single mom (who I don't expect to buy my makeup as I would rather her be able to work hard to put a roof over my head), so I looked up dupes. THIS WAS IT! So I bought it, and I am thoroughly satisfied. It lives up to the expectation that Sylvia had for MAC's setting spray, and I now use it everyday! My makeup stays matte (which I love since I have oily skin), and it stays on all day!
Most Helpful Critical Review This product is one of the worst I've used
I was hoping to find a dupe for one of my favorite setting sprays but have been very disappointed by this product. One of my friends recommended it. It smells like cheese straight up and doesn't help my makeup stay at all because the mist isn't fine enough. Even when I drench myself in it I notice that my makeup stills comes off on everything from my phone to my boyfriend's shirt. I would never recommend this to everyone.

It doesn't make a matte finish but it still works well for the price. Not super great, but it does the job. I didn't have a problem with the smell like in other reviews.
smells like straight up alcohol
kelli from florida

I would buy again
Brittany from NC
Hold the bottle a few inches from your fully applied makeup and spray 2-3 times to cover every area then let dry.
Doesn't keep makeup in place
Ashley from KC
I wanted to find a less expensive setting spray to keep my makeup on my face. I wear a mask all day and by the end of the day it looks like I didn't put any makeup on. This setting spray unfortunately did nothing.
Averi from seattle
It smells kinda bad and the spray isn't great but it holds up good for it's price point.
Not my favorite
Chels from Birmingham
Good for its price but doesn't help hold my makeup all dau
Good but not really Matte?
Lucas from Murfreesboro, TN
I really like this and it held my makeup but didn't really matte it? I mean I wasn't really getting it for the matte so I don't care but for people who want matte spray it's kinda bad
Not a memorable product
Abbey from Florida
- Cruelty free
- Actually has a matte finish
- Didn't react poorly with my skin or makeup
- This product didn't do anything for me or for my makeup

This is my go to setting spray !
AG from Oxnard, California
I spray it all over my face after I apply my makeup and it always makes it look better and more vibrant. I love that it's so cheap yet works like it's expensive!
Favorite setting spray!
Hildy from Rock Town
Absolutely no complaints! Glad they made it in a bigger size!
Cboom from Michiana
elf has actually became one of my favorite makeup brands because of this product alone. I have combination skin and this evens me out PERFECTLY and my makeup looks FLAWLESS ALL DAYYYYYYY. I get compliments constantly from clients at work. Their brow dip and powder, lipsticks, SETTING POWDER, and highlighters are all also amazing. Especially considering the price.

Love this product and the price!
Kitkat from St. Louis, MO
It's good for the price since it is cheaper but it's a thicker spray. I would prefer more of a mist but some of it comes out as drops so you have to hold it farther away from you face.
Would not recommend
Zee from Atlanta, GA
Don't buy this product. My makeup comes off on everything. My shirt, napkins when i wipe my mouth while eating, my phone. 10/10 would not recommend. 👎🏽
My favorite setting spray
Love it from Chicago
I usually wear it when I go out partying and my makeup stays all night, sometimes the next day my makeup still looks fresh
lhvoyles from Indiana
I have oily skin and I've tried several different brands. This one was the worst. It does absolutely nothing to set make up or mattify.
Jade from Appleton
I've used this for a very long time. It's long lasting through the day! Awesomely priced.
Great price for what you get.
Mea from Mississippi
Wore this to a very hot outdoor concert and my makeup stayed intact and in place all night!
I love this product
The mombie from Arkansas
I was skeptical when I bought this. I googled ways to make my makeup stay on all day long and this was one of the first setting sprays that came up. I am not skilled with makeup and I'm a mom that has very little time to do anything in the morning. It gets frustrating to spend tons of time on my makeup only for it to disappear from my face by lunchtime. I decided to try this spray because of the good reviews and the affordability of it. I also expected it wouldn't work. I was wrong! I have used this spray for about a week and I find myself getting more excited about spending time on myself in the morning because the makeup actually stays on!
De from Nashville
I've yet to use this setting spray. I heard elf skincare is great and I use elf eyeshadow and love them. I based my rating for the setting spray on word of mouth.
Really is a magic mist
Chowbella from TN
Love this setting spray! My holy Grail for liquid foundation & baking powder. Also keeps me from getting oily throughout the day & that's key for oily/combo skin
