Hey guys, I hope all is well! This post will be my first impressions on the Gerard Cosmetics Slay All Day Setting Spray I got from Beauty Bay not too long ago. I try to stay away from doing first impression posts as I really like to test out a product before writing my thoughts. Impressions change as you continue to use a product and I have found products where I did not like the first time I used it but love it on the 3rd use.
With that been said…
I am doing a first impression on this product because I KNOW my impressions won’t change. Gerard Cosmetics has been on my radar for a while now and they came out with the Slay All Day Setting Sprays. These come in about 5 scents and I purchased the Jasmine scent. I bought the mini bottle just to be on the safe side as I know of the brand mainly for lipsticks not setting sprays.
The setting spray promises to keep your makeup matte all day and has a light floral fragrance.
I hate it! It stinks lol. There is nothing light about the scent. To me, it’s quite strong and it actually lingers for a while! (Which won’t be a problem if it were pleasant) it smells like damp clothes you left in the washer for some days. I thought it was just me been extra so I sprayed this in front of my friend and her reaction was the same as mine! My makeup/skin wasn’t matte either and I don’t have excessively oily skin. In fact, I have normal to combo skin. Because I can’t get over the scent, there’s no way I will keep spraying this all over my face.
I am happy I got the mini bottle but it is still quite expensive: £11 for 30ml. I will be using this now for dampening my sponges or brushes just so I can get my monies worth. I thought of trying a different scent but I don’t want to risk that. (I just sprayed it right now lol and I hate it so much arrrrrgghhhh!)
