Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow. I am ridiculously picky about setting spray. It is a staple in my makeup routine so having a decent setting spray for me is huge. I've tried every drugstore setting spray I can get my hands on, L'oreal Maybelline, E.L.F, Hard Candy, Ulta's, NYX, ect. and most of the high ends too. This hands down is fantastic. I was in shock. I bought it and was in for a total surprise. I have oily to combo skin but in the winter I get more dry and this worked like a dream. It kept my foundation on ALL day, when I went to hug people I didn't worry about getting makeup on them. The nozzle is amazing! It gives you a good even spray zero complaints with this product. I will definitely repurchase, best makeup setting spray I have tried in a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing is life I was so excited for this because I am loving cushion foundations/blushes right now. The color is beautiful and it feels nice on the skin when you use the little puff it comes with lol It takes some getting used to and I personally don't mind it but I've seen people achieve beautiful results using a brush as well. I read somewhere that this was even comparable to Chanel's Soleil Tan de Chanel! I would definitely recommend this for the quality/price, especially if you're a sucker for cute packaging like me ^.^

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price, Nice product I recently bought this to try it out. I have used primers from Benefit, Smashbox, Hard Candy, e.l.f., etc. I have combination/oily skin. Silicone based primers just make my foundation slide off and wear patchy quickly. I had almost given up on primers altogether until I tried this product. You cannot beat the price. It is sort of mattifying. I found it absorbed very quickly and easily into my skin without leaving it so matte that you cannot apply makeup well. I used to be oily midday. My makeup lasts longer now. I am really glad I picked it up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Too Slick! If you have combination skin this stuff is great. Foundation actually sticks to my nose now :) My skin is fairly sensitive. I set it aside for a little while because it didn't agree with my skin at first. I had recently exfoliated and the primer did sting. If your skin is sensitive use caution and definitely exfoliate a night or two b4 using this. Light hand with downward strokes minimizes pores and lines. They don't vanish but they look much smaller. Less smothering than the high silicone content primers @ higher prices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it + WARNING I love this primer. You don’t need much so even though there isn’t a ton it takes me at least two months to use it all up (I wear makeup almost every day too). The only thing that always gets me with this is that I leave it sitting out, face down, so it’s faster to get product out if I’m ever rushing in the morning. It squirts! Air ALWAYS gets trapped and when I squeeze it it squirts up into the air and onto me or onto the rest of my makeup. I still use it because I’m not about to waste any product but just a warning!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad for the price This makes my skin feel smooth and creates a nice base for makeup, however, it doesn't help fill in my forehead wrinkles (idk if it really claims to do that). One thing i found odd was that once or twice I have used it and it started to dry a created some white streaks. It kinda flaked off in parts. I dont know if I used too much or what happened, but 95% of the time it doesnt do that. I usually only use a small amount now and I haven't had problems. It does smell kinda strange but I don't notice it once my makeup is on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from sprayer was horrible I bought this about a month ago and it worked fine for about a day and then every time i tried to use it the spray part would get stuck down and whenever I would spray my face it was not a light mist like setting spray should be. It was a powerful spray in one spot of my face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good, no more "matte" than their normal formula though I've been a fan of the Photo Focus Setting Spray for a while now. I was excited to see that there was a matte formula being released as I have super oily skin. This formula is good; it helps keep my makeup in place, helps settle any powdery looking spots on my face and you can't beat the price. My gripe is that I see virtually no difference between this and the normal formula; it's no more matte than the original. The only way I can tell this is "matte" is that it leaves a dry shampoo like residue in my hairline.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works for me! I've been using this primer for a few months now, and I can't complain. I don't wear foundation on a daily, but I do for theatre, and this primer worked well for that. When I do wear makeup regularly, it's either glitter or a liquid-ish blush, and the primer works well for those too. It doesn't make them stay 100% the whole day, hence the 4-star review, but it doesn't irritate my skin (which is combination) and works for what I need. It also has a bright, almost glossy finish, and it feels fresh to put on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS PRODUCT! I have very VERY oily skin and I've tried at least 3 or 4 primers to help me not feel oily throughout the day. I bought this product due to the fact that it caught my eye because unlike the other 3 or 4, it was inexpensive and the very impressive description, so I gave it a try. I applied the primer to my face and instantly my face felt smoother and the primer absorbed all the nasty oil on my face and I continued with my regular makeup routine and went out in the sun and my skin was still flawless!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm in love with this primer! I bought this on a whim after running out of my expensive, Lancome primer. I was pleasantly surprised! It was moisturizing, but not oily, matte, but not drying, and it only took a little to set my makeup. I love this stuff and it works just as well (if not better) than my more expensive primer. I've tried all kinds of primers (cheap to expensive) including Smashbox, NYX, MAC, Revlon, and L'oreal, but this Wet n Will primer does the job, it does not irritate my skin AND the price can't be beat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definitely keeps your makeup in place This setting spray definitely helps your makeup stay in place. My latest experience using it was just last week at a friend's wedding. At the end of the night (10 hours after doing my makeup) my face did not look like a mess, even after hours on a 90 degree day, dancing, sweating, etc. However, I took away a star for two reasons. The smell is really bothersome. Personally I think it has a strong chemical plastic-y smell. The second reason is the way it sprays. It's not always a fine mist and very often you get big droplets that hit you no matter how far away from your face you hold it and, whatever part of your face they land on, will wipe away your makeup. I've found that doing about 3-4 sprays in front of you and then walking through the falling mist is safer than spraying directly on the face.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done This spray is good. I tend to use their rose primer water to set my make up as I have dry skin and easily cake up. I find the primer water really melts the powder products down into my skin. This setting spray doesn’t get too matte or dewy. It’s pretty much exactly what it claims to be. I personally prefer their primer waters but I will continue to use this during the summer months where my make up melts off after 4 min outside or for an event where I really need things to stay put.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic??? I mean, for real. It must be magic. I have combo skin, and my T-zone can become a gross, oily mess if I'm not careful. HOWEVER, I tried this setting spray for the first time recently, and my makeup lasted a good 12 or so hours with this stuff, and that's after about 4-5 of those hours being spent sitting directly in the blast zone of the hot Kansas sun at a baseball game. Our team may have lost, but I sure didn't lose any of my makeup, even when I was sweating away. Truly magical.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product, and TSA approved! I bought this for a trip to Florida and it worked really great! We didn't check any bags so I had to make sure I bought something that I could pack in my purse and this was just the right size. TSA allows for 3.4 flz and this was 1.52 so it was even smaller and compact to travel with and it has still taken me a few months to go through the whole bottle (I do not use daily). Kept my makeup in place and I even used it to foil some glimmer shadow to my eyes. Highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Okay It’s an okay setting spray. It lasted me a year and it’s a great setting spray for people who just started wearing makeup or just started using a setting spray. I can definitely say for myself that I won’t be repurchasing this product because I have a very oily skin and it did little to almost nothing to keep me matte during the day. If you just want a setting spray to keep your makeup on it’s fine but for me I need that UD de-slick! Great product for the price though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I feel like I have found the perfect highlighter. I've been experimenting with highlighters since they became popular, from powder to cream to liquid, high to low end and have never been totally satisfied. This product is probably the best. It's noticeable, blends well but doesn't smear at all. It's not glittery, which is problem I have encountered with other drugs store brands. The color/shimmer looks a lot like benefit's high beam, except more reflective and noticeable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from it works great but... i think this setting spray is great. it keeps my makeup looking fresh and doesn't let it smudge or run. my only issue is the smell. i absolutely hate the scent of this. i haven't seen anyone else complain about this... so if you're looking for an affordable setting spray that will still do the job, i recommend this. but i find the smell so unbearable that i cannot even use this anymore. again, i have yet to see anyone else complain about the smell, so maybe its just me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! LOVE IT!! I have oily to combination to dry skin (depending on the weather) and I was kind of skeptical of this product. Usually setting sprays tend to dry up my skin or make my makeup look cakey. NOT THIS ONE! I bought this same setting spray at Kmart and I absolutely LOVE it! It gives my skin a beautiful, subtle glow, and my skin also feels very healthy and hydrating! Plus, it smells pretty good! I seriously have to keep buying this once I run out. I’d definitely recommend not only buying this setting spray, but also buying lots of other products from this cosmetics company. I love how they’re cruelty-free, and that some of their products are vegan. 10/10 for the setting spray Would definitely recommend! P.S. That pic I uploaded with this review is a picture after I was finished with my makeup and used the setting spray.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG! I bought this highlighter at Walgreens a week ago and I cannot stop using it. I didn't think I would like it. This is my first cushion makeup product and it works wonderfully. The best way to use it in my opinion is with a stipple brush then stipple it onto your cheek bones and up around the temple. The highlight is not BAM! In your fave but omg it is gorgeous. It truly gives you that lit from within and I'm very happy with it. I will be buying alot more of this

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Makeup stayed on, but felt weird on my skin after a while I picked this up as a quick replacement to my Urban Decay setting spray - I do like it, as it stayed on, but there were two major cons. For one thing, I personally just don't like the smell. It's too much for me. Secondly, my foundation felt like it was starting to melt off a little as the day went on. I could feel my skin getting sticky, and this never happened with my UD. It's decent, but it didn't really work for me, so I don't think I'll be buying it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my holy grails!! This setting spray is one of the best sprays on the market. No matter how much makeup i apply and no matter how cakey i get this spray comes to my rescue.... I have dry skin and it makes my face look as soft and as perfect as silk and my makeup doesn't even think about budging... THANK YOU Wet n Wild for making this lovely product please don't change anything about it. btw this is also a dupe for the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love it. I have been looking forward to a great primer that does not irritate my skin and this is it. I have very sensitive skin and this is great for me. I love how light weight it applies and has this soft- dry finish when i blend it into my skin. It does absolutely everything i ask for and for my skin type. The only down fall is that the smell is very strong and chemical smelling, same with the concealer and the foundation in my other reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! This stuff is really great. I had tried different primers, drug store and more name-brand, but was never impressed enough to repurchase. For the price, I decided to try this and it took me awhile to actually try it - now that I have, I love it. I just went on vacation to Florida, and was nervous my foundation would melt off - this definitely locked it on, and my makeup looked insanely amazing even in the humidity, ha! Def recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!!! I have insanely oily skin and can never keep makeup on my forehead and nose but I wore this setting spray with the matte primer for prom and it lasted all night. I did my makeup at 2 in the afternoon, took pictures outside (I live in Alabama so it was pretty hot and humid) went to the dance and waffle house later. I didn't get home till after 2 in the morning and my face wasn't even shiny. Long story short this spray is amazing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps Your Foundation On! This primer is my favorite out of all of the ones in my collection. It has a moisturizing feel to it, but it isn't super slippery like some primers that make your foundation slip off. Instead, this primer has a slight bit off tackiness which makes your foundation stick to your face. You know it works because it has glycerin which is an ingredient that helps your foundation last! Definitly see my makeup lasting longer with this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best oil-control product ever! This is the best oil-control product I have ever used in my entire life. I have purchased more expensive products but none of them work like this one. All of them do nothing to control the oil and some of them even leave white streak marks all over my face! But this one is the best for oil control. I do still have to use another primer on top of it to make my face smoother though, but in terms of oil-control, this is amazing!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing I set out to my local store to find a makeup setting spray to make my makeup last longer when I go out for girls nights. I had heard so much about Elfs' makeup mist and set, but the store was completely out of them. As an alternative, I ended up buying this setting spray after reading such positive reviews online about it. I was too excited to wait until the next girls night to try it out, so I sprayed my face before working at a desk to see how well it worked. Within about 5 minutes of spraying my face, my eye makeup had found its way down my face as well as smudged on my eyelid. I literally have not had this issue with makeup sliding down my face since high school. I will not use it again (and especially not on girls nights out!). I do not know what to do with my bottle as I will not use it again.. I have to say using this product was rather disappointing....

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the hype This smells like straight up pure alcohol and I cannot stand it everytime I put it on. I’ve given it a few tries but it won’t even set my makeup in place and it also ruins it whenever I spray it on because it literally spits at you. The only reason I bought it is because my skin is very dry and I had a friend who reccomended me to buy this product but it’s not working for me. Would not recommend :/

is the photofocus face primer dewy lumineux base de teint oil free?

Asked by: Debb
I was once given an expensive brand (Estee Lauder) of illuminator base which looks great under mineral powder foundation, making it look dewy. When I ran out, I purchased this brand as a replacement. When first applied, it looks much shinier. But after applying the mineral powder foundation over it, the effect is subtle.  I am happy with this product. Not oily just perfect.

Hi! Just a question out of curiosity, why are there notches on the cap of the spray?

Asked by: veinian
It's just part of the design for "photo finish", it's supposed to resemble the lines and numbers as on a professional camera lens.
