One of my most read blog posts in the last seven years is my review of the L’Oreal Infallible Fixing Mist, which is so surprising as I’d always think it would be something more exciting like a highlighter or eyeshadow palette. My favourite makeup setting spray is the Too Faced Hangover 3 in 1 Setting Spray, but it’s quite pricey, so I have been trying to find a more affordable drugstore setting spray which I like just as much. I bought the Maybelline Lasting Fix Makeup Setting Spray as part of a two Maybelline products for £12 deal, and in all honesty, I had no idea if it was any good.
I don’t know if I’m the only one, but whenever there’s a two for £12 deal on Maybelline or Rimmel, I always want to choose the priciest products I can, so I get the best deal. I was buying a Maybelline Foundation at the time which was £9.99, and the Maybelline Lasting Fix Makeup Setting Spray is £9.99 so to get two £9.99 products for £12 was a pretty good deal.

The Maybelline Lasting Fix Makeup Setting Spray contains 100ml and is £9.99. The packaging is really bold for a setting spray, with a pinky purple coloured bottle and a black translucent lid. It’s a pump bottle and it’s recommended to apply 8-10″ away from the face, but ensuring you shake the bottle thoroughly before use. It really is a bottle you have to shake vigorously before use, otherwise it covers your face in white dots. If you unscrew the pump, there’s white product all around the inside of the neck of the bottle.
When I first bought it, it was filled to the top which meant I couldn’t shake it properly and my makeup would be smothered in ‘snow’ so I ended up tipping out a little of the mist down the sink, so there was a gap at the top of the bottle allowing me to be able to fully shake the bottle. The bottle doesn’t contain a ball bearing like the L’Oreal Infallible Fixing Mist bottle does. I think it would be so much better if it did contain one, as it’d help to blend the mix better.
Some makeup setting sprays are designed to be able to be used in layers, between primer and foundation and between foundation and powder before finishing with a final mist. However, the Maybelline Lasting Fix Makeup Setting Spray specifically says on the bottle it’s to be used. As a setting spray it’s OK, but it’s not the best I’ve ever tried. I much prefer the Maybelline Dream Satin Mist Luminous Setting Mist, it’s a lot more impressive in comparison.
Many drugstore setting sprays smell very strongly of alcohol, and this one doesn’t, which I like but it’s no different to the Revolution Hyaluronic Fix Makeup Fixing Spray which is £6. The Maybelline Fixing Spray is £9.99 and the white dots are annoying, so it’s not a product I’d repurchase but I will completely finish it.
