I didn’t know that essence had a setting spray and decided it was inexpensive enough to give it a try. I can’t remember the exact price but it was between $4 to $5 CAD.
I’ve only used this spray a few times, so I can’t honestly say how well it works for me. The problem is the spray pump. Most fixing sprays would deliver a fine mist of the product on to your face. This pump delivers a good forceful spray and leaves my face wet. I’ve tried to adjust the distance from my face when I spray it, and the further away the less control I have. It’s just not worth ruining my make up because of a possible faulty spray nozzle. I just use this now if I want to spray an eyeshadow brush for foiling eyeshadow. If I find another pump that delivers a finer mist, I may try it out again for what it was meant to be used for.
