Hey guys, I hope everyone is having a great week. For me, my week has been rather up and down with some personal issues.. let’s just say I’ve been ready to explode and we will say no more about it.
So I promised to review this product a loooong time ago, and despite writing other blog posts I haven’t got round to it. I also promised a review of a new shampoo and conditioner I’ve been using, and that will be posted really soon. For now let’s concentrate on this setting spray by Makeup Revolution.
Firstly I would like to say that this product, along with the rest of their products are 100% cruelty free. As a proud animal lover this makes me very happy indeed. There are certain brands on the market that look great, but I refuse to use them purely because they test on animals. I don’t see why a defenceless creature should be subjected to awful conditions just because I want to look good. Just no. Apart from that, I’ve not been able to find much information on this brand online, so unfortunately there isn’t much I can tell you. Sorry guys!
Secondly, this product isn’t overly expensive for what it is. I picked mine up in Superdrug for £5. You can find it online here. It’s a decent price for a quick fix if you haven’t been able to grab something that’s a little more high-end. Since purchasing this setting spray I have decided to move onto a new product made by Nyx Cosmetics, (who are also cruelty-free!) which brings me onto just how well this setting spray works.
I am a total cry-baby. I cry about nearly anything, whether it’s a cute puppy on my Instagram feed or a sad film (heck, I even cried at the new King Kong film last week). So this setting spray was really put to the test. I noticed that it was quite good for making sure my eyeshadow, eyeliner and mascara remained intact and in the right places on my face. When it came to how it kept my skin looking though, I found it didn’t work as well. It specifically says on the bottle that it is Oil Control fixing spray. I know myself that my skin is prone to oiliness, but if anything it made my skin look worse in certain areas such as my chin and even on my cheeks. I’ve come to the conclusion that it was the setting spray that made my skin appear even more shiny (and not even shiny in a good way..) than usual, and this was one of the reasons why I decided to change to a different product. Since then I haven’t had an issue with my skin looking oily.
This product is great if you need a low-cost fix but it is not something I would use on a daily basis. I still have my bottle as there is some left so I will keep it as a back-up in case my other spray runs out, or I will use this mainly for my eye makeup. For now however, I’m going to stick with my Nyx setting spray.
I hope you enjoyed this post and I will be posting about my new shampoo and conditioner very soon! Xoxo
