I’ve been talking about the sweaty-faced summer days lately. And what better way to embrace the heat than to fill your makeup stash with the products that’ll help prevent your face from melting? I recently discussed my tips for making your makeup last throughout the day here, but I’d like to spend a little more time talking about the L’Oreal Infaiible Pro Spray and Set Makeup Extender – a recently discovered important daily step for making your makeup last.
I’m not very well versed in the realm of setting sprays, keep that in mind. But I picked up this makeup setting spray from L’Oreal’s new Infallible line as soon as it came out. I knew this line was something to test and as L’Oreal is one of my favourite drug store brands I didn’t need much convincing. Yet it sat on my shelf for awhile before I mustered the courage to give it a go. I thought spraying a liquid on my face once I had spent the time to do my makeup would be counter-productive. Would it not just wash it all away? Tip – hold it a fair distance from your face. You want a mist, not a full blast (I learned the hard way). The spray doesn’t feel like anything extra on my face. It’s super light-weight and easy to use. I was afraid it’d make my face feel too dry, or the opposite, too greasy. But this fine mist delivers! I can attest to the extended wear of my makeup, even on these recently really hot days. My nose seems to be really oily lately and I’m finding my makeup slipping and sliding by the time I’ve arrived at work. But with a spritz or two of this setting spray before heading out for the day I’m finding I have nothing to worry about. I’m loving it!
Now that I may have been sold on setting sprays, which should I try next? What are your favourite setting sprays?
