The main reason why I’m so inclined to repurchase it is not because it’s a great setting spray but because I just love how it helps blend my foundation better while providing a healthy glow. As summer is here already, I’m more into using matte foundations. The fact that a matte formula can give you a cakey look (which appears quite unflattering) I make sure I moisturize well and take my time while blending. With ELF Mist & Set, I can achieve a flawless finish a great deal quicker! I find this product very useful to get rid of the powdery look especially when it comes to pressed powder or a full coverage foundation. It leaves a perfect dewy finish without being greasy at all. It also depends on how much you spritz. On my combination skin, I do five to six squirts which are good enough. If you’ve an oily skin, three to four would do the job.
As you can see, the product has no color to it so it doesn’t form any cast or leave behind any residue on the face. It does however form an invisible film - it’s where the glow comes from, I suppose - that can feel tacky for a while before it dries completely. Even after that, you may still sense something on your face but it goes away after some time so it feels absolutely comfortable on the skin. I would’ve loved a refreshing cucumber scent but it doesn’t have any odor that I could detect; not complaining though. So does it really keep makeup stay put? As much as I’ve noticed, I do think it holds my makeup slightly better throughout my working day but it doesn’t boost the wear time considerably. I would say it’s great if you want something to keep your makeup looking fresh or if you wish for a nice dewy glow but you can’t expect it to lock everything in place until you wash it off; it just doesn’t do that.
Overall, I quite like this product. For the price, it performs nicely. The only thing that puts me off is the packaging as the nozzle doesn’t mist smoothly. At first, it was difficult to get it to spray evenly across my face but I got used to it eventually. The bottle is small so you can tuck it in your purse and forget about the cakey/made-up look that may come after the second touch-up. It’s also suitable for oilies who would like to turn a matte foundation slightly luminous but not greasy or shiny by the end of the day.
