Gerard Cosmetics Slay All Day Setting Spray Review


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!)

If you are in search of a makeup setting spray please read my previous post for my recommendations and what they actually do. Makeup Setting Sprays

Gerard Slay All Day is £11 from BeautyBay

Same God back then, same God now

Hello there and welcome to my blog! My name is Sarah Fynn and I am the creator of this blog. So a bit about me, I LOVE travelling, all things hair and beaut. I love LOVE science! This blog came about as I began to transition to natural hair way back in 2011(Well it isn’t that long ago really lol). This blog will focus on 4 main areas Natural Hair. This area will have a diverse range of topics e.g. product reviews and recommendations, tips, advice and virgin hair review (my go to protective style) Lifestyle. This area is mainly poetry, inspiration and anything that doesn’t quite fit the other 3 areas Events. This is self-explanatory really. I will be covering events for my blog about natural hair, beauty and fashion or the odd event I find interesting Travel. Of course I will be bringing you posts on my adventures around the world! One of my goals is go to every single country! My travel posts may not be as regular as I would like (money problems lol) so in the meantime I will be talking about how to budget/plan and organise a trip! With any area, my aim is to INSPIRE you to either travel or go to an event even if it’s you alone, or to let you know your natural hair journey CAN BE SIMPLE! (Eek! I will try my bestest with that part)! Here you will find simple and straight forward information without the technical jargon or wooh-tah (seriously don’t you just hate that?)

Leave any comments or drop me an email to say hi, I would love to hear from you. If you’re a company/blogger and you’re interested in working with me, believe I want to too! Drop me an email if I don’t get to you first lol (I hope that doesn’t sound creepy) Email- Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day. Love Sarah.
