Most Helpful Positive Review Best Tarte Product
Don't shy away from this product because of reviewers who don't understand how to use it! This is not a makeup setting product to use after make up application. Even if you read the product description it does not tell you to use it to set your makeup!! This is by far one of my favorite products ever made and I use it every day. I am very pale with very dry skin and I use this after moisturizer and it evens out my complexion and gives my skin the look of makeup without makeup if that makes sense. I just love it. It dries fairly quickly and smells great. My skin looks healthy/glowy and not so blah/flat with it on. During the day you can use it to re-brighten as needed and it won't make your makeup slide off, but as far as setting, no, this is not for setting your makeup. I also use this on no makeup days- days I'm just hanging out at home cleaning, etc. and I still feel like if someone stops by for a visit, I'm good to go! Never stop making this Tarte!! I'll die. Haha.
Most Helpful Critical Review I had to return
So I bought this at Ulta on a whim without noticing that it wasn't setting Spray until I got home. Ok, no biggie. I could use it as a hydration spray like it's marketed for. I tried spraying this on after I applied my setting Spray and that had dried and sprayed this on top to give my makeup a dewy glow . THIS SPRAYED OUT IN BIG CHUNKS THAT DONT DRY . My foundation was running off my face and I had to quickly redo my whole face again. It's safe to say I was NOT happy. I tried to give this another chance on my bare face to see if I had a different experience, and I still got uneven, heavy coverage on my face that didn't dry and I had to work into soaking into my skin with a beauty blender. I had to return it and plan to repurchase my Mario Badescu facial sprays that rehydrate my face with a fine, even mist that dries quickly and doesnt make my makeup run.

I tried using this as a setting spray and I wasn't a fan at all. A couple months later I put it on as a primer spray and I fell in love. It makes my foundation look amazing. It's hydrating and a bit tacky so the foundation just sticks. I absolutely need this for my everyday look now.
my all time favorite!!!

I just love it ❤️❤️❤️
Almost 40 & loveeee it!!
BlueEyedQueen from New York
With my semi-mature/aging skin, this really offers a silky look to my makeup spraying before and after. I have drier spots, smile facial lines around mouth and forehead. No matter what brand liquid foundation I've used it these spots always look dryer, but with this mist I look and my skin feels younger plump🌟

Great product, bad packaging
Gill from Oak ridge, TN
I love this product so much, and that's why it sucks that I'm not going to buy it again until the packaging is changed. The spray bottle is pure doody! I've seen other people have this issue too. It barely sprays, and when it does, it's just big droplets, and doesn't have a wide range, so without spraying multiple places AND blotting in, I would have big droplets just on ONE cheek. It is so so disappointing because I love the product. ☹️
I Will Buy This Product Again and Again
Mcster from Oklahoma
Love this product to give my skin a lovely, refreshed glowiness! This product is probably best for dry or mature skin types. After discovering and using Ready, Set, Radiant Skin Mist (about 1 - 2 years ago), I can't fathom not having it on hand. I personally like to use it as a final finish to my skin care / makeup routine. It provides a true healthy looking glow from within appearance to my skin. Important Note: You must spray a light mist on your face and then leave it to set on your skin without any touching until it dries (about 1 minute). Prior to drying, it may look a little blotchy or funky, but after it dries in a minute or two,my skin looks flawless and perfect -- the essence of youthfulness. Also To Note: This is not a setting spray for ensuring that your makeup lasts all day. It simply provides a nice, revitalizing and youthful glowiness to your skin.

Amazing setting spray!
Dmissy from Tucson, AZ
I received this as one of my gift bags, couldn't be any happier. It leaves you looking the way you did when you first apply your makeup. No stains in the face, it lasted me for a while. I finished mine, on my way to purchase another one.

I have a very oily face and use products to make my face look mate and to help control the shine is sitting spray helps me not look dry and gives me a bit of a dewy look I LOVE IT I will be buying this again it's AMAZING
Read the description people! Good product
Tanya from Toledo, Ohio
This is NOT a setting spray and it isn't marketed as one! Before you talk bad about a product, at least make sure that you know what it's for. It's more or less a "primer" spray to be used after your moisturizer/serum and before your makeup. I also use it to bring down the "powdery" look of my face makeup before I set it all. I, personally, like the cucumber/mint fragrance, it comes across as refreshing to me....but we all are different when it comes to scent. Overall, I really like the product.
Mist for a matte foundation
Rawxiee from Mira Loma
I have combination skin to where my T Zone gets oily and my outer points of my face get super dry! So this pairs up great w a matte foundation. It's the perfect combo.
This is my favorite facial mist
BarbieQ from Atlanta
I've tried tons of facial mists through the years and this one is my favorite. I have Mature (54 year old) oily-combo skin and this one is just right for me. It settles down any powders you use and gives a natural skin-like finish; not matte or too dewey. Just right. I actually like the scent. It's a refreshing cucumber with a tiny hint of mint. It doesn't smell flowery or sweet, which I do not like as those seem to compete with whatever scent of perfume you choose for the day. No glitter or shimmer in this. The spray gives a super-fine mist so you have to spray about 8 sprays to cover your entire face but I'd rather it be too fine a spray vs drenching me & leaving splatter droplets on my face. I love most all Tarte products I try. They all seem to be quality products & work for my needs & skin type.

AWESOME SO GLAD I GOT IT IT SMELLS AMAZING
MrsR from Knoxville, Tn
I like to use this after I finish my makeup. It leaves a pretty natural finish that makes my makeup look melted into my skin in a good way. BUT the spray nozzle and the cucumber scent are not so great. I can get past the scent. I recommend using this as a dewy finish setting spray and going in very light handed. I also poured the mist into another empty spray bottle that I like more.
Great for dry skin & melding layers
IndyAD from Indianapolis, IN
I have dry skin and hate the way most setting sprays make your face feel sticky, heavy, or shiny. Finally found this mist, which makes the perfect light, demi-matte setting spray for me—I can't feel it's on and it does a great job of melding my finishing powder and other layers (sunscreen, primer, matte foundation) together. Prefer the light fragrance as well. Love it!
May buy again

After makeup to set but seems less oily if I spray it on before makeup
Maria from New Jersey
As this spray is advertised as dewy, that doesn't mean it has to make your face oily in the process. I found a couple things about this product that I didn't like. First, the distribution of the spray is not good. If you spray it 6-8 inches away from your face, it leaves you with little wet spots on your face. So I found it more useful to spray it up close and personal to my face instead. Second, by doing this, it does leave you very wet and dewy for the rest of the day. It feels very oily on your skin and it looks like you are literally sweating. I've had multiple people come up to me and say that my face looks greasy or that I should wash my face because it looks like I've had makeup on all day. A spray should not make you feel dirty like this. They should either fix the spray distribution or the formula of the spray. The smell isn't too great either.
A more natural setting spray that works!
Julzee from Pittsburgh
I received a sample of this and am really loving the results! I wear bare minerals, both regular foundation and the new stick foundation. It leaves a nice slight dewy glow once spraying on. I love the results!
BRI from Washington
This setting spray litterslly smells like a hay barn and makes my face feel tacky no matter how I try to use it. It makes your face look dewy but at the end if the day I look like a sweaty oily mess... I work with large ovens in a bakery and this does not help my makeup stat put what so ever... urban decay setting spray is far better.
Nicolette from Columbus, OH
I liked this setting spray but I ended up having to put it in another bottle. I didn't like the mist on this. When I used it, the mist came out really heavy and left large drops on my face. I did use it as a setting spray during the winter to add hydration to my skin and it worked well!
Not the best not the worst
Ncgirl14 from Nc
I don't use this to set my makeup, however it's a nice step after my skincare during days I'm not wearing makeup to have a dewy natural glow. It does dry somewhat sticky but it's not a huge deal. I don't think I'd repurchase but I'll still use it until i finish it. As for the smell, it's not the most pleasant. It's like a mix between a cucumber and a pickle, weird but not so weird I'd stop using it.
Should be used as a primer!
suzcole from Santa Barbara
Bought this spray for a setting spray but ended up using it as a primer - after skincare and before makeup. As a setting spray it is patchy, as the mist is not fine. But as a primer it's amazing. Makeup applies like a dream and lasts all day.
I really liked this products

DO NOT BUY
Chess from Los Angeles
LIKE THE MAJORITY HAS SAID: This is the worst spray ever. I don't ever leave reviews, but i'm only posting this as a warning & as a heads-up! DO NOT use this as setting spray. I used it after my whole makeup routine, before graduation, and the spray left patchy & glossy spots in my face! I tried to blend it in, but it removed my makeup in the places that the spray had touched. It literally ruins your makeup. I had to start over! You can find drugstore sprays that work wonders compared to this—again, just a heads up. Don't waste your money.
