Most Helpful Positive Review From powdered donut to glazed
My face is covered in products by the time my makeup is done - [product:the-ordinary-alpha-arbutin-2-ha], [product:paulas-choice-resist-10-niacinamide-booster], [product:la-mer-creme-de-la-mer] [product:too-faced-born-this-way-foundation-38] [product:laura-mercier-translucent-loose-setting-powder][product:huda-beauty-desert-dusk-eyeshadow-palette][product:benefit-cosmetics-roller-lash-mascara-30-ounce-full-size][product:huda-beauty-power-bullet-matte-lipstick] [product:nars-bronzer-duo] - so needless to say by the end I am a powdery donut. I love setting spray but sometimes it leaves me looking like I survived a rainstorm vs dewy~ (it's important to hold the bottle a few feet away from your face but also be aware of how different setting sprays work since every nozzle is different) but with [product:smashbox-cosmetics-photo-finish-setting-spray-weightless] I am always looking DEWY. It is amazing since I am super oily but with this I look like a glowing Grecian goddess vs a napkin post pizza grease dab. It is the glazed look I have been dying to achieve. Thank you smashbox! I also use the [product:smashbox-photo-finish-foundation-primer] which keeps my foundation in place all day. The price is also amazing since this bottle is so big. Pretty sure this will last me all year even though I use it so often! I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
Most Helpful Critical Review Just "Okay"
This setting spray was just "okay". The spray bottle did not dispense a fine, even amount of product everywhere. A more condensed stream would come out of one side than the other. Not a HUGE deal, but I had to spray it multiple times to get on my face in some areas and then spread it out on my face in other areas that the stream hit. This was troublesome because it affected my makeup by making it look more messy in some spots. I think the ideal design for a setting spray is a fine mist aerosol. It did make my makeup last a bit longer, but not enough to warrant the price. I have combination skin. Within a few hours, I still ended up blotchy and oily. On a positive note, there is absolutely no smell—which is nice—and I never broke out from using it. This is a setting spray that I don't have to worry about putting on my face because it doesn't clog pores. Will I purchase or even recommend it? Most likely not. It wasn't bad, just not great or worth the price for me. I received this product for free to test and provide an honest review.

It's lightweight but not weightless. Also, it is not longwearing and not for me.
Would but again again
Aja from Ohio
I actually prefer this more that the urban decay it sets nicely and holds your makeup all day i just wish it had oil control I still have to blot or powder through your the day
Made me break out
Nicole from Portland
This is the only new thing I have added to my makeup routine and I have huge deep pimples on my face now.
BEST setting spray on the market
Cece from Baton Rouge LA
Ok sis, you proved that you are the best of the best. I used this before going out in the 100 degree weather and nasty humidity and let me tell you. My make up didn't budget, not even my liquid lipstick. Worth every single penny spent.
Best setting spray I've ever tried!
Rose from NYC
I have really oily skin, and at the end of the day my makeup not only looks and feels greasy, but also ends up cakey and heavy looking and eventually fades away. I've tried every primer, foundation, concealer, or powder or setting spray and it NEVER stood looking the way it did when I first applied it by the end of the day. However, I tried this not even expecting it to do much for me and my makeup looked absolutely amazing! Stood on for 10+ hours and looked exactly the way it did when I first applied. No cakey-ness, makeup didn't settle into fine lines or look heavy, oil totally under control yet didn't look dry either. I absolutely recommend especially in these hot summer months we're in.
The best yet!
Courtneyc from Baton Rouge, La
This is by far my favorite setting spray! I have used many brands such as urban decay (second fav), tarte, mac, benefit, etc. Not oily at all or matte. Perfect in my opinion, but I do have good skin and it is considered normal. I have to wear at work and I've noticed a lot less transfer. Would recommend!
Alex from PA
I have combo skin that by the end of the day my makeup is sliding all over and wipes off on my clothes, etc. This spray is the first one I found to actually help. I used to use urban decay and this puts the all nighter spray to shame. My new fav :)
I recommend and I would definitely buy this product again
Nicci from Houston, Texas
I put on in morning and it last all day until I get off at 9. I'm definitely hooked on this
Equal to Urban Decay Allnighter
CYC from Woodland , CA
Great Setting Spray. Makes your Makeup last. Very similar to Urban Decay All-nighter. I use them interchangeably. I was able to get it on a great sale as well. Highly recommend.
Great finishing spray
MrsH_11 from Texas
I have oily skin and I enjoy this spray. Before my oils start pushing through, it is actually transfer proof, I've tested it several times. I also feel like it helps me stay later a little while longer. Great spray.
Amazing for Oily Skin!
Hannahs from Flower Mound
This absolutely lives up to the hype. I'm not sure why it doesn't work for other people but I'm super super oily and I have to wear a mask all day with COVID-19 and my makeup is glued to my face. Absolutely zero transfer and if my face feels sweaty there is no bunching of my makeup at all. This stuff is 100x better than UD all nighter. I'm so glad I found this before summer because Texas has some brutal heat!
Mary from Oklahoma
I've been using UD all nighters setting spray for about 8 years but wanted to mix it up a bit so I tried this one. It's great. When using this with the SB photo finish lite primer and their photo finish foundation, it makes it super long lasting. I'll definitely be repurchasing when I run out.
ATeam from Honolulu, HI
I am a fitness instructor and wear eye and eyebrow makeup. It doesn't not make my eyebrows last. Just a primer and this setting spray and my eyebrows still melt off. It's not an even spray, more like big droplets. The Mary Kay setting spray I had worked better and evenly. I have to reapply my eyebrows after my workout. Something so expensive shouldn't require touch ups or multiple layers.
Nina35 from Canton, MI.
Not hydrating, no dewy glow, and no "melting" your makeup together to look more natural (like fix+) does, but it does do a great job at not transferring makeup onto your clothes (mostly your shirt collars). No other setting spray does this, so that's why I'm giving 3-stars
Kate from Frederick, md
I didn't use a lot of the product and it made my skin feel sticky and shinny
saychelless from New York, NY
The weightless spray is actually really good. I was pleasantly surprised how smooth my foundation laid and brought the whole look together. It melted the setting powder down beautifully. There is a slight oily finish to it so if you're oily I'd keep it at 2 spritz as a finisher.
Photo Finish Setting Spray
motherbucker from Saint Louis, MO
This setting spray would definitely work better for people with normal/dry skin. I have oily skin and although it did keep my makeup in place, it made me look very oily and shiny.
Amazing! I go through
melanier61 from Regina
Amazing! I go through at least one a month. I can't live without it. Perfect for setting and refreshing your makeup all day.
I really am enjoying
lagoss_ from Spotsylvania, VA
I really am enjoying this spray. I almost never ever into the "high end" products because of the price. I go through setting spray so quickly I can't continually spend $25-35 on this stuff. However I came to terms buying this one solely because of the "non transferable" aspect. I wear glasses to work and found that some foundations will run away. When I'm wearing this spray it won't let the glasses rub off my make up!! Love it! I heard if paired with the other smash box primer water and primer it has very long lasting effects.
kayleel6480 from springville
This has been saving my life when it comes to having a crisis with my combo skin! It helps my oily parts and hydrates my super dry parts! Absolutely love!!
I love this setting
stephahkneexo from Ontario, CA
I love this setting spray. One of my favorites. Helps my makeup stay in tack whenever I have a long day ahead or if Im trying to take pictures with friends.
jonib4481 from Bemidji, MN
I got a sample of this and of course it made me want to try other products from Smashbox!!! I love the setting spray it keeps my makeup looking like it was just applied through a whole work day! ❤️
A little pricey. But
aislingalainn from Sandusky, OH
A little pricey. But fantastic item. Absolutely love it. I wear it to all my photo shoots
the hype is true!
chelss1 from Markham
I really thought the hype was overwhelming needless to say but it is SO NICE. I don't think it makes your skin more matter or more dewy since it just set your face. The spray is so refreshing and a gorgeous mist. I would say the claim of it being transfer resistant is true however I would not rub your face on a white shirt.
Love it, Definitely is
pariswynn_ from Wadsworth
Love it, Definitely is long lasting and I would recommend to every type of make up user.
