e.l.f. Makeup Mist & Set Review
From the Brand: Wish you could have a product for your makeup like Hairspray is for your hair? Well…keep your makeup staying in place all day with a radiance boosting invisible hold with our new Makeup Mist and Set. The invigorating mist moisturizes and soothes the skin with key ingredients Aloe, Green Tea, Cucumber and Vitamins A, C and E. The lightweight, comfortable and alcohol free formula improves makeup wearability and prevents color from running or fading.
Retails for: $3.00
Where to Buy: Target, Walmart, EyesLipsFace.com, and Drugstore.com
My Thoughts: I don't think this has the same setting power and last effect as the MAC Fix+, but this is a decent comparison. You really get what you pay for a lot of the time with products, and e.l.f. can be hit or miss with it's lower end products. This is a nice refreshing facial spray, with vitamins and minerals to recharge your skin especially after a day of travel or when the dry air is sucking the moisture from your skin. It doesn't disturb the makeup on your face already and absorbs pretty quickly.
I didn't notice my makeup lasting any longer with this spray over the top afterwards, but I didn't notice it looking worse either. It's a good product to use to dampen your brush with when foiling eyeshadows, but again, it doesn't give the same long lasting power of either the MAC Fix+ or even eyedrops. It's comparable to using water to dampen the brush for foiling.
Final Verdict: For just a few bucks, this is a great option to toss in your purse when you're flying or for the winter to perk up your skin and add a quick shot of moisture without having to put on actual moisturizer.
