Works Good

By SCotton

from Ft. Worth

Comments about ULTA Matte Makeup Setting Spray:

I feel like this spray works good. I don't like the sprayer though. It comes out like a waterfall to the face. They need to change the sprayer to make it more of a mist! Otherwise it's a great buy for the money!

          Comments about ULTA Matte Makeup Setting Spray:

          At first I was using this product AFTER I was finished with my setting powder and my face would be oily within 3 hours. Now I apply it right after I'm done with my liquid foundation and BEFORE setting my face with powder. My oil is controlled for at least 6 hours!!! No touch ups!!! THESE ARE AMAZING RESULTS FOR SOMEONE WITH EXTREMELY OILY SKIN! My foundation used to separate so quickly but applying it like this is a total game changer for me! If you are not seeing the results you like I advise you to try it out like this. I am so happy with how my foundation looks throughout the day.

            Makeup stayed on for hours! I didn't need to touch up my makeup once during the night. I thought I would need to since I was at a concert, yet my makeup looked like I just put it on! Will buy again!

            Everything u need to know

            By Laina

            from 99711

            Comments about ULTA Matte Makeup Setting Spray:

            Unfortunately this really didn't work. My mom used to buy this in small bottles because she just heard about setting spray. I loved it as a teenager, playing with makeup. Now that I try it in a full bottle, it really doesn't make my makeup last. It does have a weird smell but it never bothered me. It doesn't make my makeup last, or control oil. It kinda does set the powder into place, but I'd say the Makeup Revolution Oil Control does everything this can't.

              I normally use this right after my moisturizer and allow it to set for a few minutes.once it's set a use Ulta green tea blotting paper to remove any oil then I follow my makeup routine and apply it again at the end, my make up looks fresh and matte for a longer time.

                  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?
