First of all I have the oilyest skin ever! I thought this product would be a saviour when I found it on the internet and read the reviews. It's not bad, I still do get oil breakthrough and need to touch up my make up or pat down the oil. It has helped keep my make-up on longer just not what I expected. But I would buy it again, as it does give me a longer time without any shine. I do NOT like the bottle it comes in, it only gives me one spray and then cloggs up so I had to pour the solution in another spray bottle.
of course this isn't a miracle spray, for those that have pretty oily skin, u will still not be able to live without the oil blotting papers in your purse. however, this product does help minimize or slow the surfacing of oil on ur face pretty well, so that u have bigger gaps of time b/w when u need to blot. it's a great product in that sense. as for the price, i think they could do better... i actually got lucky and got mine for $8 at an ulta clearance sale for this brand, which is the only reason i got it. for awhile i've been wanting this (due to the reviews on mua), but held back b/c of the full price $39 for the full size 8 oz. bottle.
OMG i love this product.. i have the oiliest skin you will ever see.. usually i use 3 shiseido blotting papers throughout the day. but with this, 1 does the job!!!... it also makes my complexion so smooth and soft and takes away the cakeyness of my foundation!! it just makes me look like i have dewy skin!! not oily but dewy!!!
Its soooo good for oily skin... it keeps the oil from coming... and keeps makeup ON for hours and hours till the end of the day..
it doesnt cause breakouts on my skin too!! (my biggest fear)
amazing.... truly amazing... get it now!!
since i discovered it, I cant live without it now...
Update: Okay... i still like this alot... but I sometimes wish it comes in an aerosol bottle... cuz the mist is not fine enough!
I really like Makeup Finishing Spray. I'm suprised. I tried the Model in a Bottle before and I wasnt super impressed....so I was kind of biased about finishing sprays in general. I bought this based on the reviews here. It does work. I love it when a product performs like it advertises.
The reviews on this are glowing for a reason. I have Ben Nye's Final Seal finishing spray and really like it for long days/nights out, but it can be pretty drying and shellac-like. This is like a more gentle, everyday-wear version that keeps makeup in place without feeling tacky or stiff on skin. I recommend buying it in one of Skindinavia's kits, as the other products in the line are true gems as well.
I decided to use this product for a month before reviewing it, just to be fair. It has truly earned 5 stars in my book- thank you to MUA for another wonderful discovery! This is simple to use, you simply mist it over your makeup to set it. This truly does help to slow down, or even stop the makeup sliding off the face problem. I have an issue of makeup slide off around my nose and this has made a big difference. It also keeps blush in place, even if you have a bad habit of resting your face on your hands like me. It is somewhat expensive, but I was able to grab two of the small bottles on clearance for $5 each at Ulta which is a deal. I would say definitely give this product a try if you want your makeup to be long lastling and beautiful all day.
When I read the description of the product and the reviews, I thought it was too good to be true but I'm happy to say this ACTUALLY WORKS!!! In my experience, primers usually only help a little in prolonging the wear of makeup (I use Smashbox) but this definitely keeps your makeup looking fresh throughout the day and noticeably keeps my skin from getting oily. I have tried this with 3 different foundations (TM, medium, and full coverage) and it works equally well with the different formulas. I was especially impressed that it kept my TM looking so fresh as otherwise it usually looks like I'm wearing no makeup by the end of the day.
I recently did my friend's makeup for her wedding and her makeup stayed fresh through the end of the night! I only had to touch up her lips from time to time. I was in a rush to do my own though so I forgot to apply it myself and am so regretting it because it shows in the pictures, especially b/c I was running around a lot. But at least she looked great! This is a must-have for daily use and for special occasions! continued >>
This spray is a must-have for my super oily skin. I love love love it! When I 1st purchased I thought it worked pretty well, but wasn't convinced because I bought several new products at the same time. I stopped using it for awhile & it was back to saturating 3 blot sheets 3 times a day. When I remembered to use this again, I was thrilled to realize what I'd been missing. I use 1 blot sheet twice a day & that's it. This stuff is amazing, worth the price. I actually repurchased today & will continue to do so.
So I got this in the post and I must have acidentally ordered two 6 oz bottles and I got a tiny 2 oz bottle too. I would recommend to get the 6 oz because it is better value and the other one is very tiny but it is good for keeping in my purse. Anyhow I got it in time for my first sleepover with a new guy I liked, hehe, and I wish I would look good in the morning but I just wanted to look my very best and I fell asleep in my make-up, I know....bad, but I think some girls know what I mean? Having put this on in the afternoon, I liked the feel of it, it made me look more dewey and I was so surprised to wake up after a whole night rubbing against the pillow and etc etc and the make-up was still there and I looked as good as the night before! Like OMG, what more can you ask for? Ive been using it everyday since then in every weather and it doesn't fail its task. It really keeps the makeup put.
I am glad I did bought two bottles :)
This is an awesome product. Spray it over your makeup, and it keeps everything in place for HOURS. It keeps my face looking pretty fresh even at the end of the day (despite the fact that I have oily skin, an uneven skintone, and breakouts). I get much less oil breakthough (I only blot once at the end of the day, as opposed to several times throughout). I haven't noticed any problems with this product causing breakouts, so that's an extra bonus =)
If only it weren't so expensive...
