      Comments about ULTA Matte Makeup Setting Spray:

      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 definitely would not recommend this product to anyone! This felt like water in a bottle. It was very inefficient and the description was misleading and untruthful. I've tried other brands of setting spray and this brand is far inferior. Don't waste your money on it. Very disappointed.

                      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?
