My setting spray collection is getting a little out of hand, but I just love trying new setting sprays. I use different formulas, several times during my makeup application; a primer spray after skincare before makeup, after foundation and concealer, on my BeautyBlender for a dewier finish, as a setting spray, as a refresh spray and to intensify powder products. My favourite setting spray is the Too Faced Hangover 3 in 1 Setting Spray or the Gerard Cosmetics Slay All Day Setting Spray. I’ve tried a few drugstore setting sprays and my favourite until now has been the L’Oreal Infallible Setting Spray, so I had to try the two Maybelline versions and I have one of them; the Maybelline Dream Satin Mist Luminous Setting Spray £8.99 to show you today.
“Set your makeup & refresh your skin with our soft mist setting spray. The mist leaves a luminous effect on the skin for a radiant and healthy-looking glow.
Includes purified spring water and finish boosting powders.
Skin type: Best suited for Normal/Dry
Straight after makeup application: Apply mist 8-10 inches from your face to set your makeup and add a subtle luminous glow
During the day: Refresh tired looking skin by applying throughout the day as makeup starts to wear off.”
The mist is very fine and the formula doesn’t need to be shaken before use which I like. The L’Oreal Infallible Mist needs to be shaken quite vigorously before use otherwise your face gets covered in white spots. This setting spray has a nice, fresh scent and it doesn’t sting my sensitive skin like many alcohol heavy setting sprays can. I really like the subtle glow this setting spray gives my skin, and it’s ideal for when I’m wearing fuller coverage and I want my skin to still look like skin.
The glow is subtle so it’d work for oilier skin, and it does work nicely when spritzed on my BeautyBlender before applying foundation too. A lot of the drugstore setting sprays are very similar but this is one of the nicest drugstore sprays I’ve tried and I’ll be reviewing the Maybelline Lasting Fix very soon on my blog to see how it compares to the Maybelline Dream Satin Mist.
