Hello my lovelies, i hope you are all well and having a good week. So as many of you will already know a few weeks ago i went a little crazy and bought a lot of products, so i am still trying to catch up on doing posts on them for you. Today i thought i would talk to you about MUA's fixing mist as the lovely Alice from Bright town girl left a comment asking about it and i thought as it's quite new a few of you might want to know about it.
I Have never tried a fixing mist before, the only time i have really thought about doing anything is on the rare occasion i go out so i have fancy make-up and I'd use the old trick of using hair spray. I'm sure many of you would of tried this at least once and I'm certain that all of you that have thought the same thing as me...sure i may look nice but i have a horrible taste in my mouth (not that i leave it open when i spray haha) and now my face stinks of hair spray. Well i can assure you this is a million times better and doesn't leave you chocking in the horrible hairspray stench.
"Fixes your make-up in place all day long. Protects against heat, humidity, cold and windy conditions; whatever your day throws at you - your make up will hold in place."
I have tried to put this to the test as much as i could for you guys, as i don't apply my make-up at 7am go to work and need it to last me till i walk back through the door at say 7pm. I have found this fixing mist personally for me and my needs rather affective, for example i have a habit of resting my hand on my jaw when I'm sitting so of course my make-up will wear. Also my nose can get a bit oily through the day so it will also wear through my make-up, but i have found my foundation looks better and like i have just applied it for longer when i have worn this. I also put it to the test by doing a full face of make-up including a natural smokey eye, sprayed some of this to fix it all in place and then hopped in the shower to test against the heat and humidity, and i must say i was really impressed. Because i wear powder over my foundation as i like a matte look, normally when i do my make-up and then decide i need a quick shower i have to re-apply my powder. However when i done it using the mixing mist my make-up still looked like i had just applied it and wasn't affected in anyway. I won't like to comment if it does last the full eight hours that it states on the bottle as i don't have my make-up on for that long, but i would say it certainly protects your make-up and holds it in place for a reasonable time.
It's incredibly easy to use simply apply your make-up, hold the fixing spray at arms length, close your eyes and spray. I use about two, three sprays and that's it. At first because it's wet i did fear it would take all the powder i had just applied off, but once it dried i couldn't even tell i was wearing it. It also has a very pleasant sweet scent, which is a lot better than nasty hairspray. MUA products are available in selected Superdrug stores or you can visit their website. At the moment it's still in the sale for £4 but it's regular price is still only £5, so it is very affordable if you would like to try it. I hope some of you find this helpful, thank you for reading, and i shall see you all soon x
