Great to made eye shadow more intense

I don't use this as a fixing spray as I am not sure about them in general. But I must add that I use this to make my eye shadows more intense and it works wonders. All you do is spray a little on you brush and you will see how much product it picks up. Best with glitters or any other intense make up look!

Perfect for shadows.

I have severly sensitive skin but I am addicted to setting sprays so I tried this one from Essence. It is a light spray with a fine mist that really does make a difference as far as I can tell. Only thing though, it stings sometimes. I suppose some days my skin is just more sensitive than usual and doesn't approve of my choices.

So I moved it to my tools bag and now exclusively use it to wet my brushes and shadows for intense and longer lasting applications and it works really well. Also, I don't feel bad about using too much of it as it is so affordable. Will I repurchase? Probably not. But only because of the stinging issue.

Average

Mix Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray and MAC Fix+ and you get this product as a result.
First of all, the packaging is not awesome but I love that essence kept it subtle. You can see how much product is left, plus the purple colour gets me every time (I love purple).
I also love that essence knows what a fixing spray actually is (it's supposed to lock your makeup to prevent it from melting, cracking etc., have a look at Reddit, a user posted a useful guideline for fixing and setting sprays).

The spray head does not dispense the product very fine like the Urban Decay Setting Sprays. It does dispense like MAC Fix+.

This fixing spray moisturizes and locks your makeup. It doesn't have any scent. I feel refreshed whenever I applied it.

As for the effect, it keeps my makeup better in place than without it. It does a good job and my makeup looks less cakey than before. It adds a subtle glow which is nice when I want that. Oil still comes through but this happens every time on my T-zone.

If you can't decide between essence and Urban Decay:

All Nighter Setting Spray has a very fine mist which spreads the product evenly.
Keep It Perfect! gives you a rough mist which can lead to some drops on your face. The product needs more time to dry and set the makeup.

UD is more expensive but you get more product and the fine mist won't waste as much product as the essence spray.
essence gives you less product which will be empty within weeks if you use it every day but you have to pay less for it.

essence gives you some moisture, which will remind you of MAC Fix+, yet it will lock your makeup for a few more hours.
Urban Decay just locks your makeup without adding any moisture but that is key to keep your makeup looking fresh for a longer time.

If you're on a budget, try essence. If you have the money, you can decide which product suits your expectations better.

My verdict:
I still prefer my UD spray since I feel it does a better job. It locks my makeup and it makes it look less cakey without the need of moisture.
essence gives you a few more hours if you use it after your makeup is done but UD tops this with even more hours.

Beautiful All day long!!!

First of all I love the small see through bottle cause it fits snug into my travel makeup bag! Something else i have to mention is that it sprays a fine even mist from the first to the last drop in the bottle. Unlike other I have used that tend to start spraying bigger droplets as it gets to the end which then have the same effect on your makeup as a normal drop of water would UGgggggg!

It got a very soft neutral smell which doesn't irritate even if you accidentally inhale when you spray. No hairspray-cough-your-lung-up-effect!

Another YES for Essence!
