Setting sprays have become more and more of a necessity to my makeup routine, They are also becoming extremely popular with lots of brands releasing their own.
Whether going for minimal makeup or full on glam I can't help but spritz! I love the way it settles down any powders applied making for a more skin like finish.
Read my thoughts and why I love each of these makeup spritzers
1. Mario Badescu facial spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater
First of all, anything that has 'Rose' in the title instantly draws me in! Im obsessed.
This ones lovely before and after makeup its very soothing and refreshing, The mist on it i would say is definitley more of a spray its not very fine.
I wouldn't say it prolongs the makeup wear at all but works really well for settling powder.
Super refreshing for a long haul flight!
Pretty inexpensive at $20 a bottle from SephoraNZ website
2. Mac Fix +
This fix plus spray is one of the limited edition fragranced collection Mac released last winter (I really wish I had stock piled the rose as it smells divine) But fix plus really is a staple of mine its what I keep in my kit and its one of the products I feel I can drench my makeup in and it dries down perfectly dewy! My only pet peeve would be when it gets really low to the bottom it almost spits at you...
I also love that mac do Fix Plus in a travel size perfect for in your hand bag or on flights
$38 from all mac stores/counters in NZ
3. Loreal Infallible Fixing Mist
I was super excited to see that Loreal launched a setting spray in NZ because not a lot of our more affordable counter makeup brands have them! Well done to Loreal on this one.
I absolutely ADORE the formula for this one its not like anything else I have tried, I never thought a spray would increase the makeup longevity a hell of a lot.. but this one does! It Controls oil like you wouldn't believe.
So if your more on the oily side and struggle with your makeup sliding around and wearing off this one will be your best friend! Shake it well as it does have fine sediments in the bottle that need to be mixed well before applying.
$30 stocked on Loreal counters
4.Pixi by Petra Makeup Fixing Mist
I brought this one on a whim recently from asos as I was really intrigued by pixi, Lots of Beauty Bloggers seem to rave about the brand.
This has been my go to daily setting spray since I got it in the mail! Ive already used around half up as you can see, I think it does a really great job of locking in makeup and setting it but also hydrating at the same time.
After using it the finish of my skin is super healthy and radiant, another two phase product that you have to shake well. I love it so much I have already purchased the Pixi hydrating milky mist to see if it compares!
$40 from asos.com
5. Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water
I knew Ioved this one when I used up the first bottle and had to run out and purchase another straight away! It doubles as great as a Primer Spray before makeup it makes the skin almost a little tacky so your foundation really adheres well, and also to finish the makeup.
It smells great without being over powering, Quite a heavy spray so just be careful not to spritz too close when applying after makeup.
This is another one I like to drench my skin in for an amazing dewy finish, probably explains why Im onto my second bottle!
The most pricey out of the 5 at $62 a bottle from smashboxcosmetics.co.nz
