Most Helpful Positive Review The easiest way to make your base look 100000X better
this became my go to setting spray immediately after purchase. Having a day where nothing is really sitting right on your skin? Things look powdery or cake-y? Too matte? Congratulations, you just met your best friend. The mist is incredibly fine, it dries down dewy and somehow gives you that 'glowing from within' look insanely easily.
The only issue I ever have with this product is that before it dries down she is W E T. Do not touch your face for the love of god - and if you get a little overzealous (which I do - this stuff is basically crack to me) it can cause eyeshadows to crease and run. I've found my way around this by going base>setting spray>eyes but I know that won't work well for some other people.
But honestly if you're looking for a glowy setting spray, there isn't a better one on the market - especially for the price!
Most Helpful Critical Review If you're desperate its a choice
So the only reason I went for this was because I bought j. Cat aquasurance power foundation and heard it was a good companion product. I've used this with other foundations and honestly could not in good conscience recommend it to anyone. It has a very strong chemical smell and makes your skin feel tight. If you're looking in this price point I'd have to recommend nyx, Milani or even just a Mario facial spray over this. It does seem to help slightly with transfer, but every time I use it I'm more concerned with what it could be doing to the integrity of my skin. I have had increased breakouts when using it, but that could also be a separate issue. My complexion does not look dewy afterwards, as it makes my makeup look tight and more caked on. I would recommend using this with aquainsurance or if you're in a pinch for a setting spray, but otherwise I don't think it's worth the buy.

Gives you a nice shimmer that isn't overly oily looking or obvious, but it really didn't help me at all with having my makeup stay. Wouldn't buy again.
Dewy but no moisturizing
Kt123 from VA
This definitely makes me dewy, but it doesn't add any moisture to my skin. No glitter or shimmer. I do find myself having to spray a few times throughout the day to keep my skin dewy, but it does set my makeup pretty well. Good bang for your buck!
Still up in the air
Lindsey from Richmond, VA
I haven't used it as a setting spray yet, but it does some work as a priming spray. The smell though. It is like I sprayed half a can of fabreeze on my face. No so pleased there. I got as a gift with purchase, so I gave it a shot, but not sure I will be jumping to buy again. It does what it is supposed to, and I like the idea of one product to prime and set, but I can't handle the scent like that.
Dewy illuminating spray without the glitter or shimmer
Lisa from New York
I wear powder foundation so I like to try setting sprays that give you some radiance and dewiness to the skin. Since a powder foundation can easily look chalky and make you look lifeless, I wanted to try this due to a recommendation if you wear powder foundation from one of my favorite Beautuy Youtubers. I'm so happy that I finally purchased it, it has this beautiful pink iridescent color to it that really makes your skin look bright, dewy and healthy. Love it
Phxrsng from Arizona
When I first got this I loved it. The new bottle is totally different. No glow. No setting power and very drying and feeling like there is a lot of alcohol and strong scent. I thought I was crazy but I had an old bottle. Used that and it was like a completely different product.
A must buy!
KbStella from North Carolina
I've gone through several bottles of this and I love it! I first use my UD All Nighter and then I spray this for the luminous glow. I use my hairdryer for it to dry quick and melt/set and then switch to the cool shot to finish. The combo of the two sprays- my makeup isn't going anywhere and I live in the hot & humid south. Definitely a dupe for the ABH Dewy Set and not nearly the price!
I do use the non luminous version as a priming spray and love that one as well!
Melts your eyeshadow like a pro
Nadia from Hawaii
I have crepe-like eyelids, so when I go a bit heavy on eye makeup or if I use shimmer I use this to melt it all together. This is great for mature skin.
I would use this before mascara because it will remove some of it.
A Bottle of Nothing
Cee from New York
This smells good but that' all. My skin is not dewy, my makeup is not set. It just is a bottle of nothing.
anu from Medford
really a good product
deddiconfetti from WI
Was not expecting such a strong scent (smells like passionfruit to me) or for it to linger indefinitely. I can tell if I haven't washed my face mask, because the scent stays behind.
I do enjoy the way it "melts" my makeup together, but only useful if I go too hard on the powder. otherwise I can see my base melting in places. It's also got a strong spray nozzle, and my arms are short so it's hard not to soak my face. when it works great, I can get my foundation to look like the Armani Luminous one so there is that.
if they made an unscented one I would repurchase, maybe, but it's so strong. So if your jam is scented makeup, and you want to remove cakeyness and add glow, this is for you.

smells a little weird but works great
Mar from Los Angeles
My New favorite setting spray. Leaves a natural healthy glow to the skin.
No I wouldn't buy this again
Emma from Fairfax,VA
Looks very nice at the beginning but then it gets smelly
dry girl's dream! must buy item!!
Lyn from McAllen, TX
This setting spray is THE best ever! It truly illuminates & gives you a soft glowy look as advertised. It works better than other high end dewy sprays. For reference my skin is normal to dry. I live very humid, very hot weather & this setting spray doesn't give me any issues with looking too dewy or oily looking even in this South Texas heat. You do need to shake well before every use since it tends to sit at the bottom of the which is not an issue for me. It does have veryyyy fine glitter in it, but not an overwhelming amount. I actually love the tiny glitter amount it has. When the light hits you honey omg you look so flawless & the goddess you are. Hope this helps!
Tippy2 from UT
I love this after I'm done doing all my makeup I spray it and it just makes my face look so flawless!! Love it
JayH26 from Philadelphia
I use this as a primer and setting spray. I've gone through at least 10 bottles at this point. Works so well. I don't get oily and my makeup STAYS!
Adds a fresh glow!
Elle from San Antonio
I really love this product. As it states, it is illuminating and I love the fresh glowy look, but I typically stick to spritzing the outer regions of my face with the Catrice spray, and the inner areas/ t-zone with the UD All Nighter spray. I feel like this works best for me because otherwise I look kind of greasy down the center of my face. I'm on my 2nd bottle, and will definitely continue repurchasing.
Mrs Sunflower from Hialeah FL
Nice and glowy
Beth from Conway, Arkansas
I shake this up real good and enjoy a dewy glow to my makeup layered up with the Morphe Continuous Spray, keeps my makeup looking great for a long time (6+ hours) even through sweating and humidity. I do a lot of everyday makeup and cosplay makeup, so I like my face to stay in place! Love this stuff, and I got it because of a recommendation from Taylor Wynn on Youtube, so glad I tried it for myself!
I like !
Gigi from Riverside, Ca
I like this spray . It holds my make up all day and I love the dewy feeling it gives me while my make up stays still. I have many other setting sprays and this is one of my favorites . I wish they had bigger bottles in this .
Check the ingredients
Caro from Groton CT
I didn't even end up buying this product after looking at the ingredients. The product claims to have no alcohol or perfums, yet the product contains both benzyl alcohol (an aromatic alcohol, so its possible this ingredient was used as a fragrance,) and parfum fragrance. What is this about?
jenna from st louis
Not a bad product by any means, but not great either. Spray is a little weird. I prefer the Milani one
A def. no
Renee from East Coast
Made my makeup slide off as a finishing spray and not even go on as a primer. Not sure if I'll find any use for it.
Joni from Tennessee
Compared to other reviews, I thought I would end up with so much shimmer and sparkle that I would glow for days.... not so much. I shook it before using, as directed. No strong fragrance and no massive sparkle or shimmer. I was left with a natural dewy finish and long lasting set to my makeup.
dashdoll from Ponce, PR
I decided to try this in combination with the J Cat powder foundation. I really enjoy that combo. Need to try this out more, but it has a lot of potential
