I have used as a setting and primer and omg this is amaaaaazing!!!!!! ...a waterproof seal for your pores...So I decided to purchase this with my reward and the first day I used it as a setting spray over my most moisture-rich Chanel foundation, cream blush, tons of cream highlight and just a teensy bit of contour powder at the temples; I couldn’t believe it—this spray kept my highlight from melting into my skin and it stayed beaming even after I mowed and weed-wacked AND my face didn’t break out into a sweat pool! This spray acts like a water seal for your face, keeping your pores from pouring sweat and keeping the elements from changing/ melting your makeup.
