11 Setting Sprays Under $15 For All Skin Types

by Melanie Richtman

There is nothing worse than putting on a whole face of perfectly done makeup only to realize you have no setting spray on hand. Setting your makeup is one of the most crucial steps, and these setting sprays for under $15 will keep your makeup in place all day long and will work for all skin types.

There are a lot of expensive makeup sprays out there, and in my experience, they don't make that much of a difference (although I will admit that Urban Decay's All Nighter setting spray is pretty amazing, but you can buy a travel size version for $15 that will last you months, so it's for sure worth it).

There are so many makeup setting sprays out there that do their job without breaking the bank and they often come in various finishes so you can find the perfect one for your preferred look, whether that's dewy, matte or somewhere in between. And most importantly, they will keep your makeup in place all day (or all night) because there is nothing more annoying than watching your perfect foundation/contour/highlight melt off your face.

So without further ado, here are 11 makeup setting sprays for all skin types that are under $15.

1. NYX Makeup Setting Spray


NYX Setting Spray, $8, Amazon

I've been an avid user of NYX's dewy finish setting spray as of late, and I think it does a pretty good job. My skin definitely looks dewy, but I sometimes wonder if that is from the spray or just natural oil... It also comes in a matte version, which is great for people with oily skin who might want to keep the shine in check, or for those who prefer a matte look.

2. Pro Fix Oil Control Makeup Fixing Spray


Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Oil Control Fixing Spray, $25, Amazon

Balance out your skin and keep oil at bay all day with this exclusive.

3. Pixi By Petra Makeup Fixing Spray


Pixi By Petra Makeup Fixing Mist, $15, Amazon

Pixi has consistently great products at a good price, plus, look how cute the packaging is.

4. Maybelline Face Studio Master Fix Wear Boosting Setting Spray


Maybelline Face Studio Master Fix, $2, Amazon

Maybelline's Face Studio collection has some pretty great products — I swear by their primers — and this setting spray will definitely get the job done.

5. Skindinavia Makeup Finishing Spray


Skindinavia The Makeup Finishing Spray, $34, Amazon

Just a few sprays from this little bottle and your makeup is good to go for 16 hours. That's a long time.

6. L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Mist & Fix Spray


L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Mist & Fix Spray, $3, Amazon

All you need is one coat to keep your makeup on smudge free all day.

7. Physician's Formula #InstaReady Setting Spray


Physician's Formula #InstaReady Setting Spray, $13, Amazon

I've consistently had massive success with Physician's Formula products — I use their argan oil every night — and this brand new setting spray is sure to be a new cult favorite.

8. e.l.f. Makeup Mist & Set


e.l.f. Makeup Mist & Set, $3, Amazon

If you're looking for the best bang for your buck, this e.l.f. setting spray is it. Plus is has aloe, green tea and cucumber to cool and calm your skin.

9. J.Cat Beauty Matte Makeup Setting Spray


J.Cat Matte Makeup Setting Spray, $8, ulta.

Not only is this bottle adorable, but the formula is infused with lavender to keep your skin refreshed. And it's cruelty free, so you can feel good about your purchase.

10. Catrice Prime & Fine Multitalent Fixing Spray


Catrice Prime & Fine Multitalent Fixing Spray, $8, ulta

Tired of lugging around a gazillion different products? This primer and setting spray will help you downsize since you can use it before and after you apply your makeup. Talk about a win.

11. Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray


Urban Decay All Nighter Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray, $22, Amazon

And last but not least, this will literally keep your makeup on all night long. Believe me, I've tried it (on one too many occasions). The only downside is that once you try the smaller bottle, you'll want to upgrade to the more expensive full sized bottle, but I promise you, the travel size bottle lasts a long, long time.
