Makeup Setting Sprays

Hey guys so I was sorting through my makeup today and realized how much I love makeup setting sprays.
I have tried quite a few, but I thought I would mention the good, the excellent and the ugly....
If you don't know what a makeup setting spray is, I'm not the best person to write a description. But I will say that it's a water mixed with another product that you spray before or after makeup. It's great for spraying on to avoid the caked foundation look. Ahhh yep that defo isn't a great description, oh well. ;)

The most "famous" makeup spray is MAC's Fix +. This is the first one I tried, and I'm only just finishing the first bottle. I do think it's a very good product, but it's not worth the money. I find it nearly unscented and really nice to spray on throughout the day, defo in the Summer.

The worst one out of the 4 is Simple's Moisture Boost. There was ALOT of reviews on this product and I really wanted to love it, but I hate it. I have dry skin and so wasn't expecting this to make my skin feel greasy and oily. I don't like the smell of this and think the bottle/packaging is very cheap looking.

The one that I've been trying to save for special occasion is Skindinavia's Finishing Spray. I bought this online due to many good reviews, and I agree with them. I feel like this does the job of a makeup finishing spray and almost keeps to it's claims.

My favourite out of the 4 is The Body Shop's Vitamin E Face Mist. I bought this a month or so ago and haven't looked back. As I've said, I have dry skin and so use sprays to make sure my makeup doesn't look powdery and cakey- this product helps to stop that! I use the Vitamin E daily moisturizer and LOVE it. This spray comes from the same range, and so I want to get the whole range because the two products together have transformed my dry skin.

Anyways guys that's my makeup finishing/setting sprays reviewed. I do think everyone should have one of these in their makeup collection to finish makeup, to help it last longer and to give that "fresh" look.

What's your fave makeup setting spray?!

  3. How much was The Body Shop one?xxx

  4. I was going to buy the travel size of fix+ to see if I liked it, but I'm definitely going to check out The Body Shop one now!

  5. I have been looking for a setting spray for ages, I was just gonna splurge and buy the Mac Fix + but I will be sure to check out The Body Shop one first. Great post, thanks for your help.


  6. I bought the Simple hydro mist and I didn't like it either. I don't think it's specifically designed for make-up setting but it's pretty useless nevertheless.

  7. Even though I am allergic to Vitamin E creams I LOVE this face mist/setting spray. It is just so versatile for refreshing face and setting make up, so useful!

  8. Great post dear!
