Most Helpful Positive Review Works for me...
I bought this to compare to UD's All Nighter, since this one is less expensive. As we are in a hot summer and I also have really oily skin, I was hoping this would keep my powder foundation set - and was not disappointed. At first, though, I was a little put off by the smell, which is sort of floral, and I'm not used to putting perfumed stuff on my face. Also, it is definitely a mist instead of a spray, so I felt like I had to use twice as much, but the end result has been great after using this for a couple of weeks. My makeup is still in place by the end of the day, despite the sweat and oil I'm producing. Will probably use this as my everyday and use the UD for special occasions.
Most Helpful Critical Review Perfect mist - Left me oily
So I'll start with the pros which is that the mist is really fine which is incredibly refreshing. I have always used UD's setting spray and hate how aggressive it comes out of the bottle lol. I loved the fine mist with this one, and the scent is very refreshing. The con that can't get past though is that it makes my face unbelievably oily, and I don't even really have oily skin. I'm prone to a bit around my t-zone about mid-day and I keep blotting tissues in my purse if it gets bad enough, but about a couple of hours into wearing this, my whole face looked like a greasy disaster. I couldn't believe it. I hadn't changed anything else with my makeup routine except switching my setting sprays, so I know it was this. It's a shame because from an application standpoint I'd give this a 10/10. UD setting spray makes me oily too (even the de-slick version) but not anything like what I experienced with this. I'll keep it and try it again in the winter when my skin is even dryer and give it another shot.

I've used Mac and urban decay setting spray in the past but have oily skin and they always gave me a bit of a greasy feeling after drying.
Tarte setting spray goes on like a fine mist and I feel set and clean. Will def buy again

This setting spray is worth every penny you pay. Trust me, I've tried all the setting sprays I can and none have gave me results like this one!
I saw a lot of reviews that the scent is to strong, I don't really mind it others may but the smell will not last all day (keep that in mind) your makeup will stay in place all day & it helps with oil control.
Would definitely buy again
Ms. Jones from Modesto
Just spray where needed. It smells great and does a great job. But, if it lands on your lips, tastes disgusting
This spray is great, but too pungent.
Mini from Mississippi
I'm really impressed with this setting spray! It made my makeup look wonderful, and made it last waaaaaay longer than usual. It doesn't feel sticky and my skin can still breathe with it. The only negative I've noticed is that the scent is WAY too strong. It's a clean, cucumber smell and it smells nice, but it interferes with my perfume and is not something I want my face to smell like.
Kathy from Minnesota
I used to us a more expensive spray. Then one day looking at the Ulta website I came across this one and decide to dtry it and it is $10 cheaper than the one I was using. I love it so it is my new ride or die face spray
I like it but don't love it
Realtor Stacey from Granger, IN
I used this product while doing my everyday showings of houses and listing appts. It was ok, just not the greatness I got with Urban Decay setter. I like that it is cheaper so I will use it for my day to day stuff but will use Urban Decay for big events, or nights out.
Jefschr from Wisconsin
Love this setting spray! The mist is incredible and I do feel it helps my makeup last (and keeps it from rubbing off in this summer heat!)
Syd from MI
This product has a strong scent- it smells like cucumbers almost and its too much for my preferences- I'd rather let my perfume do the talking. It makes me more shiny than matte. Other than that it does the trick.
Longest lasting setting spray i've used!
allie :) from columbia md
definitely works best with a setting powder prior, but for me this is the closest i've found to a perfect setting spray. others i have noticed wear off throughout the day. Also a plus that is more of a mist and not a harsher spray. love!

it preforms rather well close runner up to all nighter

The fragrance was too strong for me.
Elizabeth from Downey, Ca
I have super oil skin & when I say super I mean SUPER OILY, into 5 hours of doing my makeup it looks like I dunked my face in oil. I saw that it was on sale so I decided to give it try since I had tried almost all the other cheap brands. WOW!!! I should of just started with this one, it controls my oil so well!!! This will now be my go to. If you have really oil skin this is what you need to control it & keep your makeup in place.
Would buy again.
Amy from Missouri
Smells amazing. Like how it sprays. Makes my makeup stay.
I would buy this again
Teenie from Arkansas
It smells really good. Makeup stays my whole work day
Just what I was looking for
ErinMZ from Sagamore Hills OH
I don't use this everyday because I haven't been wearing a full face of make up due to COVID 19 and not being able to go anywhere. When I do use it I love it! It's light and smells wonderful. My make up looks great all day!
Won't use anything else
Heathmarie from Winston Salem
Listen y'all I've used everything out there. This works the best and I'm not a fan of tarte products. This is the only thing on the line I swear by. It smells so pretty and it DOES NOT break you out (which is surprising to me) nor does it leave a residue. It holds up in the Carolina heat for me. Makes my makeup look prettier after spraying, too!
My go-to setting spray
Hayley from Ohio
I use this spray after I apply my foundation and contour.
Then again after I apply the rest of my makeup. My makeup stays in place, remains matte, and even has stayed looking fabulous after a busy, sweaty day.
HOLDS MY MAKEUP IN PLACE FOR 10+ HOURS!

I LOVE THIS STUFF! I've tried a few others, and this one is the absolute best! Holds my makeup in place for 10+ hours! Smells great and doesn't dry my skin!!!

Beauty Shop Bev from Columbus, OH
I love this setting spray and the key is the super fine mist that the nozzles gives you. I have tried many different setting sprays (including the holybgrail brand) and while I got generally good results with most, it wasn't until I tried Tarte that I realized what I didn't love about the others was their nozzle! Too much spray and it would make my makeup wet and runny, this is perfect!
Jen from Warminster , PA
This is the second time I've ordered this setting spray I can't get enough of it , it literally last all day long and sets the make up to perfection! I even over spray because I love it so much it makes my face feel so fresh after applying layers of products! I'll continue to buy this spray
Sarah from PA
Smells great, makes makeup last all day. Very fine mister! I appreciate that instead of coming out like someone spit on you
kingsgirl from Southern California
I have tried other setting sprays and have not had any luck at all. This one has, so far, been the best, by far. I like the spray. It doesn't "spit" at you, but has a very nice mist. I love the fragrance. It's a very light cucumber but doesn't last too long. I don't want to smell like cucumber all day (or even for several minutes), but it is very refreshing. I notice, too, that my make up actually stays put after I spray it and let it set for a few minutes. Works great! I will (and already have) buy this again.
Let me tell you about this setting spray
Prince from Athens GA
When I tell you how well it kept my foundation and concealer in place after 4 hour of MAKE UP SEX. I'm amazed how well it kept it in place. Mind you, he kept flipping me melting me like butter. I mean he and I was dripping in sweat. All I'm saying is this is my new to go setting spray ♥️ don't even get me started on the fragrance smell cause it drive my mans crazyyy overall I give it thumbs up 👍🏼
