If you are seeing white patches that means that you are not photo ready so you should constantly moisturize your face at night time to get ready for the ultra Violet rays as well as the pollutants and carcinogens in the air, so you're gonna have to prime throughout the day as well night before to open those pores as that throughout the day and it wouldn't hurt to use photo ready finishing powder
I just bought this product, completely new and unopened, however if the spray comes out black, and completely ruined a full face of make up for me. I'm not sure of the black substances, however I believe it is the charcoal in the setting spray, however I don't understand why it would come out black if it's meant to go on top of your make up? I'm very unhappy with this product and I think there needs to be better quality control on these cosmetics

As you read in the product name…there is charcol in the setting spray. I am amazed at how many negative comments there are about the fact that the liquid is grey. Also when you spray the bottel far enough away from your face you dont get sploches.

Even after shaking well, the product comes out as greyish-black. I tried the product twice and neither time was i happy to clean up and fix my makeup after doing it. I like milani products, but this one just aint it

While I understand this is a charcoal spray and you need to shake well, the product shouldn't come out black. I shook the product very very well before using it. I've tried it multiple times and no matter what I do, it still comes out black. I thought my eyebrow pencil smeared and my mascara bled, but it was just the spray.
I'm not sure if it's just the bottle I got, but it sprays weird and I need to spray it at an angle for it to have good coverage. Very weird.
Overall, I'd say you're better off buying a high end matte setting spray instead of this. Milani is a great brand, but this product of their's is not worth it at all.

Like the others have stated, this sprays out black. I shake it very well so that is not the issue. The first week I used it, there were no issues snd my makeup was flawless looking. On day 6, i gave it a good shake and sprayed it all over my face. To my horror, it looked like I was playing outside in the dirt and i had to redo my makeup.
I imagine they will either take this off the shelves or reformulate it to remove the black coloring. I cant give this one another try because i cant afford to have to redo my makeup and start all over again when i am heading out to work or an event. Once is enough for me. When it works good, it is amazing, but what sprays out is very unpredictable.

i tried it this morning, and it made every single pore on my face visible somehow, and left black dots all over my face.
i read some reviews, and tried shaking it harder (i also threw it down the stairs) and holding it further away, closer, ect. you could hold this up to the moon and it would distribute black splotches on your makeup.
i think it comes down to luck with how it was formulated that day or how the sprayer is for that bottle, but then it really just makes you look like a plaster cast.
it definitely holds onto that makeup though, just in all the ways you dont want.

By far this is the best matte spray I have ever used. My makeup looks even more flawless. For anyone who's trying it for the first time it is always best to apply and let dry before you apply your makeup ! you will love the results!

As a normal setting spray, it's pretty ok (5/10) but it only leaves the skin matte for about an hour. If you have oily skin, I genuinely don't recommend
Chase from Riverside, CA
This was my first time using this product and i shook it just like it says and put black dots all over my face ruining my makeup! Also got on my shirt and left a weird residue in my hair! Will be returning.

chantel from tacoma, wa
it comes out a black color and leaves black dots all over your face, i've shaken the bottle up to see if that helps but it's no use.

My all time favorite setting spray. Works great for oily skin. Kept my make up from sliding off and looked great all day.

I have this setting spray and I loved it. I bought another one and it gave me black dots all over my face !! Was in a rush anyways and completely ruined my makeup.
steph from Clearwater FL
I had my doubts on this setting spray at first, mainly because I saw a lot of issues with it spraying splats of black, so I tested it out myself. I found the only reason it splats black spots on some people is due to not shaking it well, and spraying too close to the face, if you apply how your supposed to it leaves your makeup FLAWLESS. For reference I'm extremely oily in my T-zone, but this setting spray absolutely controls those oils, it's like The only setting spray that actually comes through with the claim of being ''matte". DEFINITELY worth trying out, I would recommend this to all my oily girls out there.

Worth every single penny! No use of paying for anything else!
Mickey17 from BK,NY
I love this spray that's all I have to say… makes my makeup lasts and lasts without touchups. The nozzle sprays with ease on face. I would most diff recommend. And luckily for me I ordered one spray and they gave me a double (2 pack). Which was crazy to me but I didn't mind I'm thankful cause now it'll last me a whole while now. Thanks Ulta : )

I loved this product. I sprayed in the morning and my makeup lasted all day long and so beautiful
Cheryl C from Raleigh, NC
I picked this up on sale on a whim and it is now my go to setting spray. It proved itself when I went on vacation to Copenhagen and my luggage was delayed for days - leaving me with just the makeup I had in my liquids bag. I used this as a primer first then after application to set and my makeup did not budge - even after climbing a tower and walking 6 miles sightseeing.
Note: read the directions and SHAKE WELL. People that complain about the gray cast clearly aren't shaking before use because this is my 3rd bottle and this has NEVER happened to me
Bliss from Connecticut
I love this setting spray! Your name will last all night! I would recommend this setting spray to everyone who's looking for an inexpensive setting spray.

However, I have had to return 3 bottles that the pump fails. It's frustrating that such a good product has issues with the pump.
