Hey party people
I posted my Drugstore Setting Spray Challenge last week and I am here with the first review in the series! I love setting sprays and I have lost count of how many I have tried! But I also realised I haven’t really tried many from the drugstore so this series was born! (And of course to satisfy the product junkie in me!) Today, I will be reviewing the MUA ProBase Mattify Makeup Fixing Mist
MUA ProBase Mattify Makeup Fixing Mist promises to keep skin looking perfectly matte all day long. It’s a light weight mist that applies that applies easily, holds makeup all day long and oil free.
I have been using this a little over a week now to set my makeup. I will say it’s true to its claims of Mattifying. I use the Body Shop Fresh Nude Foundation which gives a dewy finish but with this spray, it changes to a matte finish. Using this mist as a final mist on top of other mists that give a dewy finish also changes the finish to a matte. It doesn’t feel or look dry on the face. It sprays very fine so I will give them that as well, doesn’t leave white spots (thank God) or disturb makeup!
What I won’t give them? It says it leaves your make up oil free which isn’t necessarily true. I’m not the oiliest of the bunch but after 4-5 hours of wear, I can see some oil peaking true. Not enough to blot but enough to notice. It says it has the ultimate fixing power but again if you sweat or cry lol, makeup is coming off.
I think for a £5 setting spray it’s very good. You can use it on top of your primer for extra hold and I will definitely recommend this! I think for normal to combo oily skin types, this would be quite nice for everyday wear. Excessively oily skin types may want to use this on top of their normal primer. I don’t think it will be good for dry skin, it may make your skin look really dry.
MUA Pro Base Mattify Fixing Mist is also available in a Hydrating Finish.
The MUA Pro Base Mattify Fixing Mist is £5 and available from Superdrug or the MUA Website
