Chloe dear, to answer your question, I would say it is NOT mainly used to set the whole make up, it's ideally used to hydrate and moisturize your face before we put on make up. It would be nice to use to set the whole look as well. But of course, with its ingredients, although you've seen above that it's mostly from an extract, I still strongly suggest to always test on the product first on a small area, before you totally use it. I myself did the test to myself and so far..its ok for me.
A tip, refresh your face by putting it on the fridge before using it, great especially for summer season and so far, it really helps on make-up application for both oily and dry skinned individuals. Yes, I've used this for oily skinned gals, and it works well, as the oil was wiped out before the make-up application itself.
Hope this helps.
Don't hesitate to ask.
