REALLY sets makeup
I was so excited to try this spray as I was looking for a product to keep my makeup set without making me looking cakey, now I understand that this sets your makeup however I did not expect it to feel like hairspray on my face. It seemed to work fine until I tried to touch up my makeup and blend some fine lines and touching up with a little powder, boy was I lucky I was home when I tried this, by adding a little powder my makeup became super blotchy and looked HORRIBLE! I would say this will work great if you wont need to touch up throught the day however if you do then Id recommend sticking to something like fix plus.
I purchased the travel size to test it out. I like it and it does what it says but it just seems hyped up to me. I have very oily skin and this did a pretty decent job of keeping me mostly matte. My eyeshadow looked flawless but I could see some shine on my face. My liner smuged a bit but I was able to fix that with some tissues. I used this on new years eve and my makeup actually lasted through the night and into the morning with a few minor streaks. I don't think I will buy the full size but it was nice testing it out. I would like to try other setting sprays, any suggestions are highly appreciated.
amazing for everyday use!
I first bought this product in the travel size to see if it would live up to the reviews I had read about it. The first few times I used it I thought it was nothing too special and I put it aside for a few weeks. I decided to give it another shot and found myself using it everyday! It's just that little extra you need to finish off your makeup and make it look more flawless. If you set your foundation with a powder I recommend this for you because it gets rid of that powdery or caked up look.
Decent Product. Nothing Special
I recently purchased this product and was quite excited to learn it was actually made by skindinavia, so I did have high expectations. But I didnt find it really did much. Sometimes the spray isn't fine enough, but it comes out more like a 'squirt' so its a little much. It might have helped my makeup last a bit longer, but it wasn't that impressive!
I wanted to love it
I'm a UD addict, I admit. So when I saw the monster XL bottles I assumed I'd love them just as much as Makeup Forever Setting Spray if not more so I went ahead and stocked up. The mist is very fine which is great, BUT, on each bottle (three of them) there's like the rogue spritz from the sprayer. So the mist is fine all over and your drenched in one spot almost like a mini squirt gun. Maybe I'm just lucky with three bottles of crazy sprayers, not sure.. but that stinks. It did set my makeup nicely for a few hours. But I was underwhelmed to say the least. My makeup looked no different than if I hadn't used any setting spray at all. So as much as I wanted to give this a rave review.... it fell way flat. The UD lid primer still kicks everyones butt though..... just to leave it on a positive note;)
4 hours the most
Unfortunately, this setting spray did not help my makeup last any longer than without it. I have tried it with a bunch of different primer+foundation combos and it still has no effect on me. After around 4 hours, the makeup on my oily t-zone would have melted off and I'll need to touch up. On a side note, I live in a very hot and humid city.
A moral imperative!
I actually first tried this during the sweltering North Carolina summer. my makeup holds up all night long, just as the name says. through hours of dancing in a crowded club, and walking several blocks to my car my face looked the same at 3 am as it did when I first beat my face at 8pm. I even found that I don't really need to use a separate primer. Just spray before and after applying your make-up.
