I truly love this as a setting spray. It actually does lock in your makeup for a full 12 hours and it gives your face a noticeable glow. I don’t think it does well as a hydrating primer. The third ingredient is coconut water, but I have never noticed any hydration benefits. I don’t really notice any benefits from it as a primer – I didn’t find that it prolonged the wear of my makeup as a primer either. Though, this spray is kind of sticky so that might help makeup stick down. I think you may not like this face mist if you do not like setting sprays that leave a sticky feeling (I don’t mind it, it doesn’t last all day) or if you don’t like dew or glow. The finish of this spray is a noticeable glowy sheen, it is not subtle at all. You might not like it if you prefer finer mists – the spray on the bottle is borderline shower-levels – it has a wide, even spray but it does spray a ton on product.
The Hard Candy Sheer Envy Hydrating Primer Mist is honestly one of my favorite setting sprays (as you can see, it’s very well-loved), the only reason I haven’t repurchased it is because it’s been out of stock the last few times I’ve been to the store (another negative – it’s only available at Walmart).
