I was using the Loreal Illuminating Setting Spray for YEARS until one month, I received this in my Boxycharm Box. I never really thought that there was much difference in setting spray except for the brand name but boy, was I wrong! This setting spray was FAR superior in quality and effectiveness. It made me curious and I did try a couple of different drugstore sprays such as ELF, NYX, Mayebelline but nothing has come close to this and I now make sure I buy a new bottle when i start running low so that I'm NEVER out of it. Is worth the extra money. The first thing I noticed was the spray....it's almost as fine as the rose water that my Rechargeable facial mister emits. And out mists out cloud like instead of a single squirt of water, do your whole face is covered quickly and didn't end up feeling overly wet due to fine mister. I always go for the illuminating/ Dewey products instead of matte. I live my face to have a nice healthy glow to it. This spray definitely helps achieve that. And my makeup does not budge an inch for the entirety of the day. When I was using the cheaper sprays, I always had to touch up pretty much all my makeup around midday, but not anymore. At the most, I'll have to reapply my lipstick if I'm not wearing a liquid formula and my lip gloss. Other than that, I just use my facial mist a few times throughout the day to freshen up my makeup and make it look fresh. You won't see me buying a different setting spray as long as this is being sold!
