Does anyone set their makeup with spray rather than powder?

Venturing out to the shops today. I was reading about using a setting spray for when you've finished putting on make up instead of powder.

Has anyone tried this, and would you recommend it? Does it stop the shine without looking claggy?

The recommedation came from a list of how to not to allow makeup to age you (apparently powder can gather and sit in creases and wrinkles making them look worse).

Thanks chipsandpeas. Do you not use powder at all then when using the spray?

I ttied the Clarins one and all it seemed to do as make my eyes water like buggery, so avoid that one. Also, it didn;t do the job of replacing powder as I had hoped. I don't know if others do.

DD is a makeup artist and she swears by the Urban Decay setting spray.

She does use powder as well.

Thanks for the replies.

I had heard that Urban Decay do one so it's the brand I was thinking of buying.

I must have mistaken it as a replacement for powder, maybe it stops the (sometimes imagined) need to reapply powder (which is where that overly done, sitting in wrinkles look comes from).

I use smash box primer liquid once I've applied all base products - powder, blush etc. It makes it look more like skin imo and does keep it on longer. Mac fix+ is good too

I use the Urban Decay one. I do my makeup, set it with powder first then finish with the spray to remove the powdery look.
