Consumer ratings aren't a perfect science, and you can't always believe every review you read online. After all, how many people swear by a special primer that promises to smooth your skin and even out your tone? How many nail products declare they have the solution to dry, parched nails? You get the point.

However, for avid beauty junkies, word of mouth is important. In fact, many of us can attest that much of the makeup in our cosmetic bag or the products lining our bathroom shelves were introduced to us by Mama, friends, and co-workers, or, in this case, an Internet acquaintance like Sofia.

We don't know Sofia personally. But what we do know, based on her review of NYX Cosmetics' Matte Finish Setting Spray, is that you don't need to look any further for the perfect product to keep shine at bay and your base makeup looking great from sunup to sundown. Yes, even in the stifling humidity in the South.

According to an incredible review posted by the Texas-based woman on August 6 on Ulta's website, the $6 spray locked everything in place through a car accident in the rain and during the subsequent ambulance ride and hospital stay. Of course, we're glad she's okay, but our first thought was, that has to be one heck of a miracle mist.

"I was hit by a car and through the hit itself, the rain, the ambulance ride, and the hours in the hospital my makeup stayed completely intact the entire time. When I was discharged from the hospital, I had to take off my makeup and none of it had moved. If this setting spray can survive being hit by a car, then that's all the proof I need, and I'll definitely be buying it again."

Not only did beauty mavens take notice online, but they took to Twitter to praise the review—and to send their well wishes, of course.

Since the five-star review has gone viral, the spray has been listed as a bestseller on Amazon. Trust us, you'll want to run—don't walk—to buy this fan favorite (and its $6 dewy counterpart) before it's too late.
