I’ve never used a setting spray before as my makeup doesn’t really melt much but when it states “oil control”, I am intrigued. I had purchased the travel sized product which contains 30ml and is good for those who want to trial the product. I have tested this out in two methods. The first was doing as directed on the box. It states to spray it like an ‘X’ then a ‘T’ shape however I find that spraying like an “X” is enough for my small face. This original method wasn’t really effective. The second method was to spray it after moisturiser and after makeup, both using the “X” shape. This had worked out a lot better.
To compare the oil control with and without this product, I have used my trusty Clean and Clear oil absorbing sheets. These sheets have been used after around 8 hours of wearing makeup on both occasions. Without this spray, the oil absorbing sheets would turn transparent on all areas on the sheets; disgusting I know. With this spray and the second method, the oil absorbing sheets are not transparent whatsoever. The sheets still absorbs the oil but is a lot, lot less. This product is impressive stuff! Didn’t need to touch up during the day but was a tad oily at the end.
This sprays out a fine mist but it does take a while to dry. Once it’s dried, you won’t be able to feel it; it is really lightweight. There are no breakouts, no irritations and no scent. If you spray this over your powdery, matte look, your makeup will not have the cakey look anymore. It will have a demi matte finish. I have heard that spraying it on a brush first then sweeping it over the face before and after makeup is the best method. I will have to test it out. I would most definitely repurchase this in the full sized bottle.
Have you tried this product or other setting sprays before?
