    Comments about ULTA Matte Makeup Setting Spray:

    I thought it just had a bad mister on the bottle, so I put the product in a bottle w/ a mister I like and shook the spray up really well, but it still comes out so heavy. It smells good is all I can say about it.

        Comments about ULTA Matte Makeup Setting Spray:

        I typically purchase NYX matte setting spray, but it was out of stock at the time. I purchased this instead hoping for similar results. The sprayer was not a fine mist like other setting sprays and came out in large drops that dried visible on my face. It also burned my skin upon application and did not smell good.

                    This doesn't spray on like a mist when compared to other settibg sprays that I've used and because of that it leaves spray marks on my face when it dries.

                        If you keep your eyes closed while you mist it 6-8 inches away from your face, it shouldn't be an issue! This is just recommended to avoid any irritation. :-)
