I Put 4 Makeup Setting Sprays to the Test

Makeup setting mists sound great in theory. A few spritzes, and your formerly prone-to-melting makeup stays in place, and all signs of an oily forehead are kept at bay? Yes—I’ll take five, please. As the possessor of such an oily forehead (and nose, and cheeks), I took it upon myself to put these magical mists to the test. After all, NYE is just around the corner, and no one wants smudged makeup to ruin their midnight kiss—the one your best friend will be not-so-stealthily broadcasting via Snapchat, obviously.

Keep scrolling to see which mists passed the test—and which ones didn’t.
