I have only recently started using setting sprays and learning just how awesome they are, so when I saw Loreal has created one for the same awesome line that the Infallible Matte primer and 24HR Matte foundation was from I knew I had to give it a go. I also wanted to get in before social media blew it up and I couldn’t get my hands on it XD
I was given a heads up to shake the living daylights out of it before putting it anywhere near my face as it did have particles in it that if not shaken before hand could just make a mess of your perfectly crafted makeup.
Using this is pretty easy, shake well, hold about 20-30cm from your face and spray. With this one it is recommended to move the spray while you are doing it, like you do when you use hair spray, just on your face. This one is a more wet than the other sprays I have used, so you do not want a whole lot going on the same area. Don’t worry it sets rather quickly and with a matte finish.
I found that once set it did not change the appearance of my makeup at all, but I mainly used it paired with the products from this line. It might have a different effect on dewey finish foundations. I have quite long days at work and I was very pleased to see that my foundation was still just as crisp and in place at the end of the day, as it was when I first applied it. I had a heap less transfer problems with my foundation, my phone was cleaner (Yes I know ew!!) and I could touch my face if I wanted. I had no problems with creasing under my eyes when I used this and even my lipstick stayed in place better with no bleeding. I did have one issue, one teeny tiny issues, which just shows how good this was at setting your makeup. If I had not noticed and tidied up a bit of fall out from my eye shadow and used the spray over top, I was stuck with it all day unless I really wanted to scrub away or use concealer over top, but I found doing either of these altered the consistency of my makeup.
I had a few days where I got caught in a light shower and or had to do some running to make my ferry. I would not say this is sweat or water proof, but my makeup did not slide off like it normally did and it was only a slight appearance change that it suffered from, it still stayed there till I got home.
I mainly test for work days, which involve 12 hours of not being able to tidy up my makeup if I need it, running around in and out of air conditioning, so I would like to believe that this would then be perfect for a night out. I am very impressed and not willing to go back to doing my makeup with out a setting spray.
I really am loving this fixing Mist, especially paired with the Mattyfing Base and 24Hr Matte Foundation. I have a few other foundations to start testing, but I am finding it hard to stop using these three. I have even been back out tot he shops and gotten backs up of the foundation, now we already know its a winner if I have repurchased it this quickly, and I think I will be doing the same with the primer and fixing mist.
What do you use to keep your foundation in place? Have you tried any of the L’Oreal paris Infallible range?
Have a good week!
