The question on many lips is "what can be done to help my make-up beat the heat?"
I have normal skin, with combination skin in my T-Zone area, and what works for me is make-up setting spray. As the name implies, setting spray sets your make-up and makes it more smudge-proof and more moisture-proof. Once Summer is over I use it whenever I want my make-up to last all day or all night.
I have tried two brands so far; here is a quick review of them:
Make-Up Forever Mist & Fix (US$29 for 4.22oz bottle)
- Mists evenly
- Dries with an undetectable finish
- Pleasant smell
- Gentle on the skin
- LOVE IT!
Graftobian Make-Up Setting Spray (US$6.95 for 1.25oz bottle, US$21.99 for 8oz refill bottle)
- Sprays in uneven drops
- Each drop dries to leave a visible, crusty dot.
- I have to use my powder brush to blend the drops into my make-up before they dry
- Alchohal smell
- Tingles on the skin
- I do not like it, would not repurchase
The Graftobian Setting Spray let me down big time; I really expected more from it.
I tried shaking the bottle before spraying, I used my empty Make-Up Forever Mist & Fix bottle, I sprayed from the furtherest distance possible, I tested it on my hand and neck, but I still got the same result.
I know other persons who use it and it works for them. That's the thing with make-up, everything does not work the same for everyone. You have to try products to see if they will work for you.
It goes without saying that Make-Up Forever Mist & Fist wins this one by a landslide!
