Today’s post is about L.A. Girl’s HD Pro Setting Matte Finish Spray. I have been quite fond of L.A. Girl lately, they have good quality products with even better price tags. I have never used a setting spray before in my makeup routine and there are so many out there, that I thought it a good idea to start off with one that would not break the bank it I didn’t like it.
So let’s have a look and see how well it did.
I would like to say that over the years I have gotten quite good at not touching my face and ruining my makeup, but every now and then I give in and rub my eyes, or remove my blush my leaning on my hand. I also have to clean my phone at work everyday because of the foundation left behind, gross I know! I also have a bit of trouble keeping my makeup in place, especially if it is not designed for 12hour plus wear (sometimes I like the finish, but not how long it lasts). So the idea of a setting spray that would keep my foundation in place was something I really wanted to try.
It took a little bit of getting used to spray my face, it doesn’t feel like a good idea to spray your face with something and not have it melt off. So, how I used it was spraying the center of my face about 20-30cm away then each side just to make sure. This seems to be a good amount of coverage, but when I really wanna make sure I spray around my mouth, I just make sure it is tightly closed first 😉 Also close your eyes, it doesn’t hurt or anything like that, but you wanna make sure it gets on your lashes and eye lids and its best not to get too much in your eyes right?
I found that my makeup stays in place with the same super flawless look it started the day with and my blush doesn’t fade. It seems to also help the eyeshadow and masacara a bit too. My face is more touch proof than normal, but not completely. You can talk on your phone and lean on your hand without getting the usual transfer, but you can not rub your face. I mean not like you would anyway with your face full of makeup on, but who knows how stressful your day gets.
I think the best thing about this spray is it helps my foundation look good all day long, with no settling, clumping, fading or transfer, especially under the eyes and around the nose. It also does not alter the finish of whatever foundation I wear under it, which is another plus.
I’m going to need to stock up on bottles of these as they are brilliant and inexpensive.
Do you setting spray? What brands would your recommend?
