              Comments about ULTA Matte Makeup Setting Spray:

              The spray is very uneven. It's also very sticky, like spraying hairspray on your face. And it's TOO matte even for my oily skin. It doesn't melt the makeup into my face, rather takes away my beautiful finish

              Comments about ULTA Matte Makeup Setting Spray:

              Even though the spray on this setting spray is a little harsh, I need to extend my arm all the way out before I spray myself if not the spray feels like an attack, I have bought this setting spray over 5 times. Since my skin is super oily, I like to apply this setting spray right after my moisturizer and again after applying my foundation. This helps my face maintain a matte finish all day, which is excellent since I am out the door at 7am and don't get back until about 5pm from work. I will continue purchasing this setting spray because it is just that good.

                  I recently purchased the Ulta dewy setting spray and ended up returning because of the intense alcohol smell. Does the matte spray have the same intense alcohol smell as well?

                    This product contains alcohol, so we would suggest testing it at your nearest Ulta Beauty store to see if you like the scent, as scent can be very subjective! :-)
