I bought this and thought I'd give it a go, it isn't bad as it did set my makeup and it didn't wear off quickly so I was quite satisfied with this, I think for the price it's an average spray and I felt it worked best with powder set on the skin beforehand.
The only con is the size of bottle I would of preferred it a bit bigger.

Originally bought because I couldn’t afford urban decay... 2 years and 3 bottle later I’ve still not bought all nighter (maybe I should??) but I do really rate this setting spray! Matte finish and super setting power! I tend to hold the bottle fairly far from my face and spray a fair few times to avoid using too much. I also spray once or twice before makeup instead of a primer (no primer has ever worked for me!)

Great drugstore setting mist in place of the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray - mattifies and sets just as it says. The only down side is as other reviewers have noted, the spray nozzle isn't the best one, so I might put it into an empty Urban Decay bottle to see how it works.

This doesn’t what it says and creates a matte finish however, when I use this it makes my foundation wear off and you can see where the spray was and little dots appear everywhere. Would be okay for short term use ( if you’re just popping out to the shop etc) would not recommend for long days

Sadly this didn’t set my make up with a matte finish at all. I was as shiny at the end of the day as I would have been without using it. My skin can be oily, and so I went the whole hog with NYX matte primer, matte foundation and then this. But still didn’t get the matte finish I was after achieving!

This is a wonderful little product. It's cheap and it's cheerful and it does exactly what it promises to do. Does it make your face stiffen? Yes it does, however, you pay for what you get. This keeps my makeup set for 14 hours without sliding - brilliant product.

I acquired this through a NYX set while trying out NYX properly for the first time. Although this does as it says and gives a matte like finish, I found that it made my skin feel dry and uncomfortable. I think I would accept that if it made my makeup last longer without the almost flaking finish it gave after a while. I would not purchase this again as I just found it to be a disappointment.

I think with setting sprays it is usually hard to see whether they really work or not, but in my opinion, this one really does. I spray this on my face after I've set my face with powder, and I do find that my makeup looks better for longer. It's also pleasantly cooling on the skin and gives your face a bit of healthy moisture without sacrificing your matte look.

I do really like how light this product is in my face however I don't really see a difference when I wear this product I don't feel it makes my makeup last much longer then usual. But when you pray it on I think it leaves it not clumping my makeup together which some sprays do. It defo matifys your face if that's what your looking for. I like it I just wouldn't say I love it.

I purchased this back in November, I can't say I'm in love with it! I give it 3 sprays onto my face and when I'm at school (around 11am) I found it making my foundation peel. It had too take one of my friends to tell me this which was rather humiliating. I have to say it certainly matte's your face;it didn't matte it the way I wanted it too. It dried out my face! I tried it again over the weekend with a different foundation and it did it again, it's safe too say it wasn't my foundation it was the product. I don't recommend

The NYX matte finish setting spray has got to be my favourite setting spray at the minute! It does exactly what it says on the bottle. It keeps my makeup on for 13 hours a day, and even through my weekly spinning classes! It really is great value for money and I will definitely be buying it again, but I may try the dewy finish next time. Overall it is a really good product and I would highly recommend it

It definitely is a very matte finish but for me personally it feels digusting. So unbelievably dry and crusty and leaves your face feeling uncomfortable and solid. The spray also disperses really unevenly and can end up with large droplets just sitting on top of the foundation
