While you might think that applying the correct foundation is the most important part of your makeup routine, don't underestimate the power of a good setting spray. In many cases, it's the only thing that will lock your look in place and keep it fresh for hours on end, so when you find a good one, it's best to hold onto it. Such has been the case for me and TK, which I fell in love with five years ago and have sworn by ever since.

There's been a lot of hype around this particular setting spray, and it's for good reason. For starters, the formula is waterproof and smudge-proof, which means you don't have to worry about a little sweat (or, ok, a few tears) messing up your makeup. The solution is super lightweight, and settles quickly and seamlessly. In some cases, it helps to take away the cakey, dry finish that many foundations leave behind, and instead of drying out my skin, it leaves it feeling hydrated and slightly dewy.

The brand claims that the spray can help hold makeup in place for up to 16 hours, and after putting it to the test many times over the years, I can confirm that this is true.  Even on mornings when I've walked miles on the (sweaty) New York City streets, by the end of the day my makeup is still 95 percent intact—which is a pretty good ratio if you ask me.

And I'm not the only one who swears by the spray's staying power. One five-star reviewer mentioned how it even reduce the amount of makeup from transferring onto their mask. "Literally your makeup will not move!" they wrote. "I bought the mini to make sure I still loved it and I do! I tested it back out on a universal studios trip and I would say only 10 percent of my makeup transferred to my mask. This was my fault too because I added extra blush after setting. Literally so so good. I can never go without it now. I totally recommend [it] if you want mask-proof makeup."

Another shopper pointed out how it's also a win for those with oily skin. "This is, hands down, the BEST setting spray I've ever tried - and I've tried plenty," they wrote. "I have very oily skin, so finding a setting spray that keeps my makeup from budging has been a challenge. Most setting sprays, including Mac Fix Plus, tend to make my skin even oilier."

Whether you're preparing for a long day at the office or gearing up for a night out, this setting spray is a safe bet for sealing your makeup. And besides, it is called All-Nighter for a reason.
