Too Faced Peach Mist Mattifying Setting Spray Review

I purchased this item and I receive a small commission if you shop using the links in this post.

Too Faced Peach Mist Mattifying Setting Spray ($32) is an oil-controlling makeup setting mist which creates a matte finish on skin while reducing shine throughout the day. You may be asking yourself why I bothered picking this up since I have drier skin.

Well, my forehead can so bright in the Summer some of you might see the future in it. We didn’t have a really warm Summer here in New York tough! However, the past three weeks have been quite warm and quite humid. I also came back from after being New Orleans for over a week recently which means I’ve had plenty of time to put this spray through its paces.

Here’s some thoughts!

I sometimes miss the point of makeup setting mists. The youTube and Instagram generation swear by them but I always feel like I’m ruining my just applied makeup with a mist of water when I apply them. I don’t always get or understand the point and mist how they might be beneficial to the wear or look of my makeup.

I have no shame admitting part of the appeal of Too Faced Peach Mist Mattifying Setting Spray was that it was scented like peaches. Yes, I just needed to own a setting mist that smelled like peaches and it didn’t disappoint. It smells like ripe, juicy peaches which can be off putting for sensitive users but I found the scent on this and most all the items in the Too Faced Peaches and Cream Collection delightful!

The mist apparently provides a matte finish effect as well as decreases shine and gives a soft focus to your complexion to blur imperfections after application. Like most setting mists they get carried away with the claims and say this will provide 12 hours of shine control. I apply it after my makeup and yes, I still feel like I’m somehow ruining my makeup when I’m misting myself but for the sake of testing one must stay strong.

At first application and testing I forgot to shake it and ended up with white spots all over my face. A quick glance at the ingredients revealed silica was involved thus the white spots. It’s almost as if they dumped some silica powder into the mix which is why they are like, “Shake for three seconds before use”. Ok, my mistake. Next time around I made sure I shook the bottle hard because the white spot thing was not looking good. Guess what? It worked. Moral of the story, read the directions before using any product.

The formula is a fine mist and it feels quite refreshing with a strong peachy scent that disappears after several seconds. It does in fact mattify my skin almost within seconds of application. How!?!? Easy. It contains a crap load of alcohol. Alcohol isn’t something you really want to use daily on your skin as it breaks down collagen and could prove irritating not to mention drying.

This isn’t a traditional setting mist so your foundation may wear longer since shine and oil are kept at bay which allows it to last longer. But it wasn’t formulated for such a reason! It was formulated to keep shine and oil at bay for a few hours.

I’m dry but put me in a humid environment and I can get shiny. This kept me look quite cool, calm, and collected for a few hours. I’d say around five at most but no way longer than that. I think it’ll do ok for mild oiliness but not severe. It’ll also be a good item to pack in your makeup bag as it’ll work great to mist and go for oil control. Just don’t forget to shake it otherwise you’ll be running around with white spots everywhere.

The bad news? It’s not a product I’d really endorse due to the alcohol content. It’s also not one that’s groundbreaking for oil control. Sure, it’ll give you a nice matte appearance with a shine-free wear for a few hours but it won’t keep you from becoming oil through your entire day.

Too Faced Peach Mist Mattifying Setting Spray is a decent enough product but poor ingredients might prevent you from indulging.

    Oi! This is probably one product that I keep hearing Youtubers talk about because of the white spots it leaves behind, and they are shaking their bottles pretty thoroughly too!

    I don’t usually use setting sprays either, but I will occasionally reach for moisturizing sprays throughout the day because my skin is so dry and dehydrated. I used to have acne when I was younger, so I’m used to lighter weight textures, but I’m thinking I have to switch to heavier moisturizers, at least at night. Not even the Farmacy Honey moisturizer and Hado Labo is doing it for me. I’m crinkly by mid day. LOL!

      you def have to shake the hell out of it! Especially if you don’t use it a few days and let it sit around! I love a good moisturizing spray but typically reserve them for nightly use prior to applying my skincare. Or in the AM after my shower prior to skincare and makeup ;-D oh no! Try Dr Denese Hydroshield=LIFE!

  • mkdallas

    Hard pass. I would be so PO’d to have white spots all over my face after I just got dolled up, lol.

    I don’t like setting sprays for the same reason! I use the Urban Decay All Nighter and I always have to wipe mascara from under my eyes after a few hours. Maybe I’m not spraying enough but I still get foundation on my phone too. We seem to have similar skin types though and I’m glad you liked the Blurring Powder so I’m going to pick some up during Too Faced’s Red Hot Sale!

    • Isabella Muse

      YES YES YES same! I just feel like I’m doing damage vs good when I use them ;-D I did love the blurring powder, still using it daily ;-D lmk what you think after trying!

  • Brandy

    Ugh. Alcohol? Would be cheaper to just spray hairspray on my face. Thanks for the review Muse!

  • Trina

    I bought the peaches primer and I love it, it’s great at blurring and keeping any oil at bay. I think im going to skip this mist.

  • Jiyse

    Is the Too Faced Peach Mist better than the Urban Decay De Slick Spray for oil control? I saw your older review for the De Slick and you said it was great for oil control?

  • Mandy

    I don’t understand all the bad reviews! This is my holy grail setting spray!! it makes my make up last till the next day. it still looks perfect. I used to use urban decay all nighter, this blows it out the water!! 5+ stars
