Makeup setting sprays are very crucial to my makeup routine. Let’s face it! In order to get that flawless finish, you have to protect it, and a great makeup setting spray is a great way to do it. One of my favorites is Urban Decay De-Slick, since I have oily skin, it works perfectly. I usually just get their travel size bottles which are about $14 (the downside is it only has 1 fl.oz.), their large bottles are $30 (4 fl.oz.), but are too big to carry around in my purse for touch ups. But you don’t have to spend a fortune to have a beautiful finish, there are some great options that you can find at your local Target or Ulta, all for $15 or less!
1) e.l.f Makeup Mist and Set (2 fl.oz.)
$3!!! You can’t beat this price, and it’s such an awesome product! I must say I thought I’d have to touch up every hour, but I only did two touch ups all day and still looked great.
2) NYX Cosmetics Matte or Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray (2.02 fl.oz.)
I absolutely love this brand. They have yet to disappoint me and surely haven’t with this product, plus it’s only $8. I normally get the matte finish due to my extremely oily skin. But I’m sure that the dewy finish is just as awesome.
3) Ulta Makeup Setting Spray (3 fl.oz.)
I haven’t tried this one yet, but I did happen to notice that Ulta carried a setting spray within their own line of cosmetics for $10. I hopefully will get to try it out soon and update you all with my thoughts on it.
4) L’Oreal Infallible Makeup Extended Setting Spray (3.4 fl.oz.)
I was quite surprised when L’Oreal launched this product with the Infallible collection. And the results were even more surprising. I wear a few times here and there on the nights I work at the restaurant (my PT gig), and it keeps my make up fresh for over 8hrs without touch ups! And me running around from table to table things start to run, but nope, stayed right in place with this baby. You can find it at Target for $14.
5) Pixi by Petra Makeup Fixing Mist (2.7 fl.oz.)
This one I haven’t tried either, but am a fan of the Pixi brand and love their bronzers. I’m assuming it will be a pretty great product. It’s $15 at Target, so I will definitely try, and update you guys on the results.

I’m all about those budget-friendly setting sprays! I didn’t know Ulta had their own, so I’ll definitely have to get it.
I know! I randomly passed by it one day doing an Ulta haul, so I’m definitely going back soon to try it out. 🙂
