      Comments about ULTA Matte Makeup Setting Spray:

      I was excited to try this setting spray — I typically LOVE Ulta brand products but the sprayer on this bottle is terrible. It releases too much product and completely saturates the skin. To the point that it made my eyeliner run. It's just too powerful. I had to have my mom stand about a foot from my face and spray it for me to avoid getting a super soaker like spritz to my face. After I had her help me it worked great but I shouldn't have to rely on another person to spray it for me!

          The directions say to hold out about 6 inches from face and spray on. How do you avoid getting it in your eyes? I would love to get this to work for me. I want a matt finish without having to use powder, but need to avoid getting it in my eyes. Suggestions any one?

            I bought this as a cheap trial and it is mot at all worth it. The sprayer botlle is terrible and spits the product out. I have a very oily fave and this doesn't even make my makeup last 5 hours.

              this spray is great! it helps my makeup melt together and takes away the powdery look while at the same time helps it stay on long. the only thing that i'm not a huge fan of is the smell. it smells almost too chemically.

              Love this product. It is great at keeping my oil at bay throughout the day. Only thing I dislike is that the mist isn't as fine as other setting sprays, resulting in a spottier application, but still works great.

                      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?
