Most Helpful Positive Review Keeps me velvety
Love it. I tried other more expensive setting sprays but they all left me looking shiny, but now that I've tried the elf brand I'm staying with it- like my makeup does to my face and I look smooth and velvety all day!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not matte at all
First, the sprayer is awful....huge droplets; not a fine mist as it should be. I had to use a sprayer from another product to apply it. Then, within 30 mins., my face was shiny all over. It is November so sweat was not an issue. Disappointing.

It works and gets the job done. Good for the price!

There's nothing special about this product, it just does its job and nothing more. The only major critique I have for this setting spray is that it smells awful - there's no artificial fragrance or any kind of smell masking so the product smells straight up like rubbing alcohol.

This sets my makeup in place all day! Would definitely recommend.

This seems to set my makeup pretty well and evaporates quickly
MADE ME BREAK OUT
Ranjani from Chandler
I bought this thinking Elf was a good brand because I've used their primers and highlighters before and loved the quality. But this setting spray made me break out like crazy! It took a few days to realize this was what was causing it, and then it took weeks for the acne to go away.
Not really a mist
Mydogcane from Riverview, FL
I like the product overall but feel the "mist" is too harsh. I would call it a spray more than a mist.

I bought this mist for the first time and I love that doesn't have a strong parfumé and it sprites very fine.

This is a great product, makeup holds up well throughout the day. Definitely recommend.

It works.. it's not the best one that I tried but for the price is good..
it's okay for oily skin
Ali from Metropolitan Detroit
I bought the larger bottle online and it does not say on the packaging that this is a mattifying spray like the smaller bottle does. The spray is okay. I use elf for a quick day out, not for any special events/outings. Noticed it did have a little bit of transfer after using the matte putty primer, matte foundation, and camo concealer. I was expecting them all to play nice together given they're all matte from the same brand but the amount of transfer after 5 hours didn't sit well with me.
Blake from Richmond VA
It was honesty a little bit underwhelming it did an okay job at mattifying my makeup the smell almost smells like acetone it also picked up my foundation. I was honestly wanting to root for this product but it really just wasn't it.
makeup melts off
Anna from Texas
Literally just a fragranced spray. My make up was sliding off my face in the middle of the day.
Sam from Sally, NY
This is by far the best setting spay. Used with the watermelon jelly primer your makeup will stay all day!!! So impressed!!!
marylandmakeupgirl from Maryland
This is great value for the price! It helps keep my makeup in place well. Just remember to spray from an arm's length because it should be an even, light spray.
Liv from MA
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.
Hmm1 from Pa
I bought this hoping it would help my makeup not transfer onto my mask it did nothing. My mask was still covered in makeup after a 10 min trip in the store.
smells like straight up alcohol
kelli from florida
didn't like the smell at all
Is made to withstand
Alexbiggay from Aurora, Illinois
I bought this a few months ago and it has yet to fail me. I work a food service job and through all the sweat and grime that gets on my face my makeup barely comes off! It feels so refreshing and doesn't let my makeup smear all over my mask :)
Cj from Denton Texas
Used to touch up in heat.
Sophmay21 from Liverpool
I brought this as I was in need of an affordable setting spray! It did not disappoint definitely worth the money
Not worth it!

Smells terrible and removes makeup instead of setting it in a place. I'm so disappointed
EmmaX from michigan
I did my full face of makeup and used the setting spray and was shocked. After I sprayed my face, there were uneven droplets of product all over my face. I used a beauty blender and softy patted my face and there were several spots where it completely removed the makeup off of my face and other parts where my makeup clumped up. I use it as a makeup remover now.
Ivonne from Texas
It matifies tie makeup! Just like the name states!
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.
