Most Helpful Positive Review My New Go To!!!
I have seen some of the negative reviews. I almost didn't get this. I saw how people said that it left a white cast, white spots, made skin dry and foundation looked powdery. So, I bought it anyways. I am in love. I always press my setting spray into my skin with a dry beauty blender. By doing this I don't see any white cast or white dots. And when it comes to making the skin dry and foundation powder...uhm...it's a mattifying setting spray. What else were people expecting? I don't like the dewy look. This so far has been the only thing that has kept my oils at bay for more than a couple hours. I actually wore this for 13 hours a few days ago. I had a long day at work (I'm a cosmetologist) and it was pretty stressful and hot. There was still no oils to be found and my makeup looked as good as it did when I first applied it.
Most Helpful Critical Review Such A Disappointment
Morphe's setting spray is my absolute favorite, so when I saw they made a Matte formula I was thrilled! The first few uses were ok (the nozzle sprayed me like a garden hose, but I could deal) but then the product started gunking up the nozzle. No matter what I did and how much I cleaned the nozzle, the first "spray" would shoot a glob of product right on my face, which usually resulted in that patch of my makeup underneath to get wiped away. Even after the glob issues, for some reason this product would turn into little crusty white specks that felt like sand on my face, which is something I have NEVER experienced with any other setting spray I've ever tried. Literally the only thing I liked about this product is the fragrance. The scent reminds me of a freshly cut open watermelon, which is refreshing and lovely!
I'll be willing to try this product again if Morphe reformulates it and/or fixes the nozzle issues, but I'll just stick with Morphe's Original setting spray from now on!

While it does mattify as said, it leaves white speckles almost chalk like on your face & hair. Ruins the makeup look completely, would not recommend.

I have very very oily skin. Sometimes I get dry in my nose and chin area, but for the most part I tend to create enough oil to fry an egg. I purchased this despite the reviews being half for it and half against because I needed a setting spray that would keep me from getting oily on my wedding day. I tested this a month before my wedding and I love it!! It keeps me shine free way longer than I ever have gone without looking oily. After 1 hour my oils seep through, but I went a good 4+ hours without looking shiny and thats a huge plus for me! I will continue to buy this!
Was good but….
Sara from FL
This setting spray was good but only issues i had was that it left white spot when I sprayed on my face and doesn't spay directly to the face either !! But did make my makeup matte and flawless little but just need to fix up the formula a little bit more
leaves a white cast :/
darly t from new york
i bought this because i wanted a mattifying setting spray and although it is, it leaves a horrible white cast. i gave it 2 stars instead of 1 because after it dries u can go over with a face brush and it goes away. i still wouldn't recommend so im exchanging it for the regular continuous setting spray. works the same.
The way it sprays out drenches my face.

The way it sprays out drenches my skin and gets thick on the bottle
I love this!
Tosch from Louisville, Ky
I'm not sure about all the negative reviews. I have nothing but positive things to say! I use the method of applying moisturizer, setting spray, then primer then setting spray again at the point when I want to set my face. When I first sprayed this on I did notice the white spots. I rubbed them in and continued with my makeup. Once I finished my base I sprayed again and I always put my face in front of a fan to dry the setting spray. I did not notice any white spots the second time I sprayed. What I did notice was how perfectly beautiful and matte my face was all night long. It looked like I had just applied my base all night long! I wore it for approximately 8 hours and never had to touch up! I will continue to purchase this.
Leaves chalk looking specks on face
Vanessa from Pasadena
At first it instantly mattifys face after about 10 mins little white spots appear , looks like you rubbed chalk on your skin .
Light makeup wearer from Arlington, Tx
After shaking bottle product really well, it still cakes on skin.
Good formula, needs to be finessed however.
Charlotte from NY
I don't spray directly on my face I pat it on with a sponge. If I spray then it will leave large white spots. The nozzel also clogs constantly.
My favorite setting spray
Yanna from NY
Use this as a final seal.it makes my makeup looked photo shopped.
Marian from west palm
The smell is really strong and it's not the best fragrance on the world. The nozzle not only is completely different from the original setting spray, but my broke from only using it a few times. Once the nozzle is broken it sprays out white and ruins your makeup. It also didn't help with my oil skin, like i don't see a difference between this and the original. My opinion don't get this setting, get another matte setting spray or get the original morphe setting spray
Get original formula
Beauty B from New York
I'm a makeup artist and I was so excited about trying the matte version of this finishing spray. However upon use I quickly noticed that it leaves a white residue on my clients face. What a nightmare. Won't be buying again until they change the formula. The original works great
Must have for oily skin.
Chaz from Florida
I waited a week before leaving a review . The first day I used this spray I was amazed. This spray instantly gave my make up a matte finish. I almost didn't buy this product because of the negative reviews but I'm glad I did. The first time I used this product I was happy with how instant it made my make up matte. I'm usually the type that has to constantly blot my face with oil blotting sheets throughout the day but with this spray, I had my make up on for 10 hours the first time I used it and not once did I have to use a oil blotting sheet. Since 2016 I have used the urban decay all nighter setting spray but this morphe mattifying spray will now be my go to setting spray. I've read some reviews that said it left a white residue on skin but I did not have that problem.
Leaves White Cast
Gbaby from Pensacola FL
The spray nozzle is totally different from the regular Morphe spray. It leaves a white cast on the face & makes it look or eventuate pores really bad. Leaves white dots as well.

i love how it dries quick and smells good and doesnt give me a shiny oily finish that i hate
Beauty Junkie from San Diego, CA
I LOVE the original formula and have combo skin. I wanted to try the matte version for summer.
The spray is inconsistent and makes my makeup look blotchy.
Save your money and get the original version .
Lil from Broward
At first i kept having little white spots on my face after i would spray but then i was told to shake it and it fixed that problem right away. I absolutely love this setting spray, it's the only one i will forever use!!!! If you have oily skin or just love a matte look i would recommend.
Apple from Indianapolis
I really love the black can version of the continuous setting spray and I wanted to love the matte version. The product seems like it would work but the spray can is terrible. You don't get a fine, even mist - you get big droplets that go everywhere. Looking at other reviews it seems this is a known and consistent issue. I am giving it 2 stars because without a functioning delivery system the product is unusuable.
Best setting spray for combo to oily skin!
Goldie from Pittsburgh, PA
This is absolutely the best setting spray I have ever purchased! Sets my makeup all day and my skin looks blurred and beautiful. Please be certain to shake well before spraying so no white spots. The spray is a lightweight continuous mist. A must have for oily skin. Love this and will continue to purchase!
literally crusted my makeup
Lindsey from Pittsburgh, PA
literally the worst setting spray i have ever used. it worked great at first and then after an hour, it literally made my makeup crust up and fall off with one touch. it's all in my hair too. so disappointing
Spray cap breaks easily
Sarah lee from California
I've returned 2 of them and each one the spray cap breaks .
jessmg from indiana
it's got a great thing going for it being that it's continuous, but you get these white specks if you don't scrape off the sprayer.
Spray cap needs redesigned
Carmen from Minneapolis
I liked how the product itself worked but the bottle design doesn't work for it at all. Cleaned the cap, used one from another morphe setting spray until they were both clogged and completely useless....so now I can't use either setting sprays bc of terrible design.....
Good product, but terrible packaging
alize from n/a
I love the formula of this setting spray but after a few uses, it gets clogged in the dispenser.
Great for oily skin!!
Jules95 from Texas
I just ran out of my first bottle! Mind you I never liked it in the beginning due to the white spots it would spray out. Although I learned the trick is to get your wet beauty blender and dab it in before the white spots dry up and it works every time!
