I revealed the brand new Revolution Superfix Super Hold Misting Spray right here, and as soon as I saw it available on the website, I had to order it as it instantly reminded me of my all-time favourite setting spray; the Morphe Continuous Setting Spray. I knew I had to do a comparison post between the two to see if they truly are dupes? Keep on reading to find out more….

It’s important to mention that the new Revolution Superfix Super Hold Misting Spray is described as giving the skin an ultra matte finish, and Morphe also have a Mattifying Continuous Setting Spray also. Their Mattifying version is in a white bottle, and is identical to the original, except it super mattifies the skin, and controls oil.
After trying both the Revolution Superfix Super Hold Misting Spray and the Morphe Continuous Setting Spray, I can finally compare them. You do get more product for your money with the Revolution version, as you get a larger bottle, however the aerosol spray mechanism is completely different between the two.
The Morphe Continuous Setting Spray is called continuous because when you press down on the atomiser, it dispenses a super fine, even and continuous mist over the face.
The Revolution Superfix Super Hold Misting Spray appears to have the same atomiser visually, but it’s not a continuous spray. It’s like a conventional setting spray, in that you have to continuously press it as it just dispenses one spritz per press, and not a continuous mist like the Morphe version.
So the bottles and delivery method are different, so don’t purchase the Revolution Superfix Super Hold Misting Spray hoping it would have the same amazing mist action as it doesn’t unfortunately. I tried swapping the ‘black’ button part of the aerosol on the bottles, and it didn’t make a difference, so it has to be the mechanism connected to the bottle which is different.
In terms of scents, they are both very, very similar with a nice, fresh aloe vera scent. Neither has an alcohol scent like many setting sprays can. They both feel very fresh and light on the skin, and the Revolution Superfix Super Hold Misting Spray is definitely the nicest setting spray I’ve tried from every Revolution setting spray I’ve tried.
Both the Revolution Superfix Super Hold Misting Spray and Morphe Continuous Setting Spray instantly mattify shine, and make the skin look so natural, and removes any cakeiness to leave the skin looking like you’re not wearing makeup.
They both definitely improve the longevity of my makeup, and the only real difference between the two is the spray mechanism. If you’re not bothered about having to press the button continuously to apply your setting spray, the Revolution Superfix Super Hold Misting Spray is well worth a try for only £10!
