Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really liked this I really liked this product. It seemed to melt my makeup into my skin, made it flawless! My only issue was that the nozzle got clogged super quickly, and I had to replace it so I would not waste product. BUT other than that, marvelous!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from when i ran out of my milani make it last setting spray, i went to walmart to pick it up again. it was out of stock, so i decided to pick this up in its place. for the price, it works pretty well! it isn’t the most long lasting, but it does extend the wear time of my makeup by an hour or two. it does have a nice smell similar to the milani setting spray. this product does run out fairly quickly though, i ran out in about 2 weeks, which is a major downside. it would work for dry or normal skin because it isn’t very mattifying, however they do make a matte version of it. i don’t think i’d repurchase because of how quickly it runs out, only if other sprays were out of stock and i needed one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I want to try new primers because the one I have was just not working out for me so I decided to try this one. I picked up this primer about two weeks ago and the first two times I used it I had no problems, but then I put it on for work and when I put my foundation on it started peeling all over my face and it didn’t help my skin look healthy it made it look worse so I eventually wiped it off. I tried this product again and when I was apply the primer my skin started peeling again I have not had this problem with past primers but I have with a pore perfector so it might be some ingredient in it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So I bought this because I’d ran out of my luxury setting sprays, and was in a hurry and already at Walgreens. I didn’t expect much from it, being that it was only like $5, and being that it was a drugstore brand (and also knowing that Wet N Wild has been stepping up their game lately too). But I was pleasantly surprised with this product. I love the stream of spray, it seems more exact versus just an all over spray. It dries quickly, and doesn’t seem to dry out the skin. I work nights, 12 hour shifts, and this kept my makeup looking fresh the entire night. Not really anything to complain about with this product, especially since the price point is so amazing! I’d definitely buy this again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love love love this product!!! If I could bathe in it I probably would. You can apply it with a beauty blender or with your hands. Either way works well so it doesn’t matter which way you choose. If I hadn’t recently noticed that the wet n wild face products irritate my sensitive skin after use I would gladly continue to buy this product over and over again. I have never been so in love with a face product. I feel almost like my face is sprinkled with magic every time I put it on. It’s a bummer that my skin won’t continue to let me use it. Highly recommend for those with less sensitive skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So I typically purchase higher-end setting sprays and foundations and what I’ve found is that [product:wet-n-wild-photo-focus-natural-finish-setting-spray] product is 100% comparable. It contains the same formula and alcohol concentration as the more expensive product for about $5. I’m obsessed. I do a lot of pageants and dealt with my makeup melting in the hot sun but after the product I’ve gone longer than twelve hours with everything 100% put in place, which is so important when interacting with a ton of people. It’s also available in a matte version, but shh...this is my secret weapon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love love love I love love love this face primer. It’s crazy good quality for such an affordable price (typically only 5 dollars) and I’ve used it the most out of any other primer, even expensive ones, because it’s that good. It’s an awesome primer for cosplay makeup, and yes…that includes wild, full-face looks! I’ve worn face paint on top of it for hours at sweaty, indoor-outdoor cosplay conventions and it didn’t let my makeup crack or melt at all. It’s also the only primer that I have been able to use all over my face without breaking out, so I highly recommend it for acne-prone makeup enthusiasts!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love this! The first time I ever used setting spray it broke me out really bad but I decided to give this one a try. I have really sensitive skin but this hasn't made me break out yet! My foundation usually looks cakey and powdery but this makes it look a lot more natural and I love it! I would give it 5 stars but my eyes are really really sensitive to this for some reason. I put on some old sun glasses and that helps but I feel like it could be a little bit of a hassle sometimes. But for $4.99 you really can't go wrong.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I picked up this setting spray due to the price and needing something for the weekend because I was going to be out of town and forgot my go to setting spray at home. I tend to really like Wet n Wild products especially for how inexpensive they are. I had tried their other setting spray before though I tend to like a matte finish, so I thought I'd like this one just as much. I was actually pretty let down on this product, however. I didn't feel like it really did anything for me, and I felt like my makeup was sweating off in under two hours. Definitely won't be purchasing this again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This primer is probably one of my favorite drugstore primers! I have combo skin with my t-zone being very oily. I apply this only to my t-zone and it works wonders. I always worry that matte primers are gonna make my face too dry but thankfully this doesn't. It fills in all my pores and makes my makeup look so smooth! It keeps my makeup in place and non-oily for hours, even in extreme heat/humidity! The only complaint I have is that I've noticed if I apply to much, it starts to flake off when I apply my makeup. I will definitely be buying this again and recommending it to my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from really great product would recomend. leaves you with dewy glowing skin very sun protective I have acne and oily prone skin. I tried using this and building up coverage to cover acne and scarring, but I couldn't get that. So then I tried packing it on after I spot concealed with a liquid concealer. Looks a little dry, then oils start to come in. It looks really good for the first couple hours. When I put it on heavily, over time it starts to give dry patches and weird texture spots. I make sure to heavily moisturize my face before using this product, but over time it does not go well with my skin. I suggest using this as either a finishing powder or spot concealing and then using this for light coverage.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I love Wet N Wild’s original setting spray so much that I was beyond excited to see they came out with a matte version, especially because ya girl’s got very oily skin. I was rather disappointed when I finally gave this product a try. I’m assuming I must’ve had a defective bottle, but the pump was terrible. It wouldn’t push down smoothly and as a result, I just got huge droplets on my face. On top of that, it didn’t seem to make my makeup last as long as the original, and I didn’t notice if it actually mattified my face. I was so hoping to love this, but it just didn’t work out :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I really like this I really like this primer although I don't know if it is for everyone and I will explain why. The primer goes on nicely but blend fast, it dries quickly. If not your will have some dry patches that are more pigmented. Also it does have some viable shimmer. I know some people don't like that so I am letting you know. I don't mind because underneath foundation you don't see the shimmer at all. It just looks like a healthy glow. I have finished one bottle and may buy another when I work through some of my other primers. wet n wild Photo Focus Dewy Face Primer - Till Prime Dew Us Part

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This setting spray really does have a “natural finish,” but for my oily skin girls, this can be a challenge. RIGHT after I spray my face, I have to blot, a lot. About, 3-4 sheets. (That’s probably taking away the “natural” finish).. However! The lasting power of this spray is outstanding. My make up stays intact for more than 6 hours, which is unusual for me because I always have to blot every hour, and I never had to until the 6th hour! Overall a great product for lasting power, and if you want that natural look! For my oily skin girls, you’ll only have to blot right after spraying your face. But you’ll stay matte all day after! The only thing I dislike is mainly the spray. It’s literally a spray, not a mist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have tried all sorts of primers trying to find the perfect primer; even the Porefessional expensive one and that one still made my face crazy oily unfortunately. The Wet N Wild Matte Primer is AMAZING with my skin and my Kat Von D foundation, (and that foundation can be so fickle!) I am truly so stoked to find such a nice lightweight primer that is so versatile and works well with all my foundations from full to medium. Typically I mix the primer with the foundations and then blend it on to my skin and I have a perfect application every time. My skin is combo and while I do have to touch up through the day it is nowhere near how bad my skin can get with other products I’ve used. Will be a new staple for sure.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointing I wanted this product to work so badly, I'm so disappointed it was a total flop. I hated everything about it. The texture was strange, in my opinion. It dried very flaky on my face and the peeling primer was very noticeable underneath the foundation. I have normal skin, so maybe this works better on those with oily skin who can handle the drying aspect of it. But the worst offense was that it made my pores look BIGGER. I gave it a couple more chances, changing application techniques here and there. Still hate it. Sorry, Wet n Wild! This one is a hard fail.
Date published: 2017-08-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall, for the price point I didn't hate this product. This product does have an illuminating quality, but it is not a very hydrating primer so I would recommend either using some sort of hydration system along with this product, or finding another primer if hydration is a concern of yours. I did not spend much on this product and I like that it illuminates and primes the skin without me having to buy multiple different products. It looks really pretty on a lot of skin types and I love how dewy it makes my face look after foundation and concealer. I would not recommend this product if you have oily skin already, as the extra illuminating property may make your face look like you have an abundance of excess oils.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I think this was I think this was the first setting spray I ever used. It's inexpensive and works well in terms of setting your makeup and keeping it from sliding all over your face. However, the smell is horrible--it smells (at least to me) strongly of beer. That's the only thing that I can't stand about it and is the sole reason why I threw mine away and why I won't be repurchasing. I'm sorry, but the smell is just horrid. It's a shame, too, because it's such an affordable product that does the same job that more expensive setting sprays do. But I just cannot get past that smell.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hmmm... This is not a setting spray. Read the ingredients, if there is alcohol listed it is considered a finishing spray meaning it should prolong the life of your makeup not set it on your face. I bought this with the intention of using it as a finishing spray. Unfortunately, it fell short of that. There is a nice fine mist which is a plus, but other than that, I didn't notice any difference on the days I used it versus the days when I didn't. Elf has a mist and set spray that is actually the closest thing to a real setting spray That you can get at the drugstore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love this setting spray because it's so affordable and effective. The spray is relatively even, sometimes it leaves drops but nothing a brush or sponge can't fix. It dries quickly, it gets rid of that powdery look to makeup, and it never fails to make highlighter POP. No matter what kind of highlighter I use, this always makes it stronger and brighter, and I don't know how it does it. It locks in your makeup to help it last throughout the day. Highly recommend this to anyone! I only wish the bottle came with more product because I repurchase so often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i started using this setting spray a couple years ago when i ran out of my [product:urban-decay-all-nighter-long-lasting-makeup-setting-spray] and i haven’t when back. this product is 100x better and affordable than other high-end setting sprays i’ve used in the past. the mist of this spray is very fine so droplets of water won’t be splotching on your makeup, the small is very pleasant compared to other sprays and it makes your makeup stay on ALL DAY. i used this for my graduation when it was very emotional and even when i was sobbing my makeup didn’t smear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This wet and wild photo focus natural finish setting spray actually looks great on my skin. It works with all skin types!!! It has super cute packaging and its easy to use. I believe this is the smaller one so that means you can take it on the go which is great especially when your make up is starting to run can easily pat it down and then reset it. Overall it typically lasts throughout the day. It does give you a natural do we look so if you dont really like to do we look I wouldnt go for the setting spray but I love it. And the cost for it isnt that bad.

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 This is my new holy grail in the summertime. It’s the one thing that I never knew that I needed! I get very oily during the summer months and no matter what I do, I can never control it. My foundation always runs off, but when I tried this, it was not the case at all! It kept my makeup from getting oily and rubbing off; even in 90 degree plus weather. It has a thick consistency, but it doesn’t feel heavy on your face. It rubs in smoothly like lotion. I would highly recommend if you are looking for something to keep you matte through the summer months!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a nice primer. It is very lightweight. It is a little strange because it almost feels like putting lotion on your face. I don't think it did the best job at filling in my pores. It did, however, create a smooth canvas for my face. Another thing is that it is hard to find a foundation formula that mixes well with this primer. I continue to experience odd textures in my foundation when using this primer, where that doesn't happen with other primers. It isn't my favorite but it is a decent primer. It's pretty cheap so I can't be that mad at it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Kind of surprised about how this worked considering that the eyeshadow primer from Wet n Wild imo is the best eyeshadow primer of all time. I have combination skin so maybe this is best for someone with very dry skin. My skin was really oily after wearing this under my makeup despite wearing a setting powder. It honestly felt like I just added more moisturizer on my face instead of a primer. Only giving it 2 stars due to the price. I feel guilty throwing it out so I will probably use it on days where I will only be out of the house for a little bit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was not a "dewy" primer for me but it is luminous. I like to mix a drop of this in my more matte foundation to sheer it out. I didn't really like it as an all over primer since it doesn't smooth or blur and can make you a bot too sparkly. For me it's a solid dupe of the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector. It is only available in one color but it is universal and doesn't have a cast or tint on the skin. I got this free when I purchased the Wet N Wild setting spray. I would recommend for anyone who wants to add some glow to a more matte foundation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have tried so many different drugstore setting sprays and this is probably my favorite one. And the cheapest! I have oily skin and this was a life saver with my makeup. It locked it all into place and kept everything matte looking all day long. A little bit of shine poke through after about 8 hours or so, but it was manageable. The only thing I found wrong with this product is that it doesn’t come out smoothly from the bottle. Little droplets would be all over my face and I would have to pat it dry so it didn’t leave white dots all over my face.

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.
