L’Oréal Infallible Fixing Mist Review

L’Oréal Infallible Fixing Mist Review


The big finale in my drugstore setting spray review series. This final instalment will be a review on the L’Oréal Infallible Fixing Mist. Let’s get into it

The spray promises to give a long lasting finish and extend the just applied makeup look.


Tbh this was the one setting spray I wasn’t looking forward to which is why I left it for last. My 1st impressions on this were very bad lol. Basically, I decided to test the spray out on my hands and it was all good till it dried. It left horrible white powdery stains on my hands! (Hindsight I didn’t shake at all), on the second try, I shook it a bit and sprayed on my hands and again the white powdery stains returned but bloggers honour (lol if that’s a thing?!) I decided to go ahead and use it for my review.

This spray requires you to shake it very very well! The spray has some form of white powder in it which settles to the bottom when it’s not being used. If you don’t shake it properly before use, it will leave white powdery stains on your face!

If you can get past that, it’s a nice spray. Not really mattifying, maybe a natural semi-matte finish which I don’t mind (coming from someone who loves dewy finish). it also promises Anti-fading, melting and cracking which I found to be true. After getting a little heated during my errands, my makeup was still on!



If you are going to get this, make sure you give it a good shake before using. Shake it till all the powder has dissolved and you have a milky solution and spray very lightly. Shake then shake some more then shake some more to cover your tracks lol. I wouldn’t want your makeup to be ruined (that would be too painful lol)

L’Oréal Infallible Fixing Mist is £7.99 and available from Superdrug

That’s the end of my Drugstore setting spray review series, I hope you found this helpful and found something new to try. For me, I think I have enough setting sprays to last the year lool.

  2. L’Oréal Infallible Fixing Mist

L’Oréal Infallible Mattifying Base Primer Review


Loreal Infallible Mattifying Base primer review


Hey hey

The Drugstore Primer series is almost coming to an end with just two more to go( find out which primer I am using now on my Instagram!)! This week’s review will be on the L’Oréal Infallible Mattifying Base Primer I have been using for the past week (I’m a little late with this review)

L’Oréal’s mattifying primer promises to minimise imperfections, pores and shine. It gives a mattifying effecting and a velvet soft even surface


This primer isn’t what I thought it would be. I first thought it would be super matte and super drying so I wasn’t really looking forward to it. However, it’s none of that. It has a smooth texture and gives a nice canvas to work on. It has some pore reducing abilities but this isn’t a lot. In terms of mattifying, it doesn’t give a very mattifying finish, maybe a semi-matte finish.

It also claims to be oil controlling but I’m on the fence about this. My t-zone still gets slightly oily after 4 to 5 hours of wear and which is the usual time it takes anyway. What I do like about the primer though is that it keeps your makeup looking good even after sweating. (Probably because I combined it with the setting spray). I used this primer when I went to Oxford Street for some errands and at the end of the day my makeup looked good, no rubbing off or melting away.

I do wish though it give a little bit more smoothness when applied but nonetheless it’s a nice primer.



A nice primer from L’Oréal although for the price and its claims I wanted slightly more from it. I like it because it didn’t give me a really matte finish but for someone wanting that they may find this slightly disappointing ( a friend with oily skin who using this as well says it makes her skin oily lol). The primer is non-comedogenic which means it wont clog your pores, a win if you have large pores. It also goes on clear and dries clear


L’Oréal Infallible Mattifying Base Primer is £7.99 from Boots


Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Amazing Makeup Fixing Spray Review

Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Amazing Makeup Fixing Spray Review


For today’s instalment in the Drugstore Setting Spray Review Series, I will be talking about the Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Amazing Makeup Fixing Spray. Makeup Revolution is a popular drugstore brand with budget friendly prices: there was no way I could do this challenge without picking up their setting spray!

The Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Amazing Makeup Fixing Spray to keep your makeup in place all day and protect against heat & humidity whilst helping your makeup to last 8 hours


I really like this setting spray. It sprays in a fine mist and doesn’t leave white spots on the face. It doesn’t say what sort of finish it gives but I have found it to be a natural satin/matte finish which I actually like (huge surprise as I prefer dewy/glowy finishes). It doesn’t dry out my face or make my skin look dry either. I have really tested out this spray’s claims as I have used it when I have been running errands in the past week. It helped my makeup stayed put and held up against heat. I’m not a huge fan of the scent- slightly of chemicals but it works so I can accept that lol

I have a slight oily T zone and I found the spray helped to extend the time I would need to blot which I really liked. I haven’t experienced any irritation with the product. They say you can use this on eye makeup as well but I haven’t tested that out yet.


A good setting at a very good price!  The Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Amazing Fixing Spray will be the perfect addition to your makeup collection! For very oily skin types, they have an oil controlling formula as well.

Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Amazing Makeup Fixing Spray is £5 at Tam Beauty

I will reveal which setting spray is next on Instagram, be sure to follow me to find out!

Makeup Revolution Ultra Face Base Primer Review

Makeup Revolution Ultra Face Base Primer Review


Makeup Revolution is doing big things atm. They have some amazing and pigmented products plus they are very affordable too, the only issue sometimes is getting them in stock in Superdrug! Lets not forget the new releases they have been putting out lately! Anyone got their hands on the new Strobe Highlighters yet? For my Drugstore Primer Series, I couldn’t overlook Makeup Revolution and so I picked up their Ultra Face Base Primer to test out.

The Ultra Face Base Primer promises 24hr Makeup Protection whilst providing an even canvas for foundation


This primer is by far the best I have tried in the series and my favourite one to date! It provides a very silky smooth base for makeup and applies very easily too. I have small pores and I find the primer to be good at minimising them however, I am not sure how it will work if you have large pores. It doesn’t give any sort of finish to your makeup although it doesn’t really claim to do that. In my opinion, it gives a natural satin finish. The texture is very smooth and it has a good consistency: not thick but not runny either. It’s also clear and doesn’t leave a white cast on the face.

I have normal to combo skin with a slightly oily T zone but I found this primer to be very good with oil control although it doesn’t say it does that as well. I also think this primer is very comparable to the Mary Kay Timewise Foundation Primer and the Gosh Copenhagen Velvet Smooth Primer. I didn’t experience any irritation with the Ultra Face Base Primer. It helps your makeup stay longer and looking fresh all day!


It’s the best primer and my favourite one so far in my series and one I will definitely recommend! The only downside to the primer is that it has parabens in it. If you can overlook that then it’s a great drugstore primer! Lord knows I don’t want to stop using this but duty calls and I have to move into the next primer which quite frankly I am not looking forward to! ( I will be back soon baby don’t you worry!)

Makeup Revolution Ultra Face Base Primer is £5 and available at Tam Beauty

Maybelline Super Stay 24 Makeup Setting Spray Review

Maybelline Super Stay 24 Makeup Setting Spray Review

I hope I have sold you guys on Makeup Setting Sprays by now lol and if I haven’t I won’t stop till I do lol. For the 2nd instalment in the Drugstore Makeup Setting Sprays Challenge, I am reviewing the Maybelline Super Stay 24 Makeup Locking Setting Spray.

This setting spray promises to extend makeup wear and keep it looking fresh. It’s an oil free and translucent mist that locks makeup and helps to prevent makeup dulling or colour fading.



I haven’t enjoyed using this setting spray at all. It does exactly what it says it will do but it leaves the skin slightly dry and very matte. It doesn’t say which skin type it’s for so I guess it’s suitable for all skin types. Although I haven’t tested its 24 hour claims, I do notice it helps to extend your makeup and locks it into place. My only issue with the spray is that it’s too mattifying for me, although it doesn’t say it leaves your skin matte. I was worried about this product because I did read reviews saying it left tiny white spots on your face but for me, I didn’t experience that ( thank God!) I shook it really hard though. I am not a huge fan of the scent either, it smells vaguely of chemicals



I think Maybelline should really put what skin type this is for. I won’t recommend this for dry skin or normal to combo skin types with less oil production. I think for oily to extremely oily skin types, this setting spray could probably work for you. It is oil-free so it doesn’t leave any sort of dewy/glow finish. I found the finish too dry and mattifying for me so I was only able to bring myself to using it 3 times before I gave up.

I would probably use it again in the summer or on sunny vacays. I won’t be reaching for this setting spray for a while now.

If you are going to get this, please do shake it extremely hard before use.

Maybelline Super Stay 24 Makeup Setting Spray is £6.99 and available in Boots.

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Review

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Review

Hey hey

I hope everyone is doing great. I am back with the next primer review in our Drugstore Primer Challenge. Check out last week’s primer review here. Today, we are talking about the Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer, which seems to be quite popular. I must admit Maybelline is a drugstore brand I am not too keen on. Here in the UK, their foundation shade selection is APPALLING and I know there darker shades available in the US. Nonetheless, I picked up the primer because I am looking at popular drugstore primers and ones easily accessed and the Baby Skin happens to be one of them.

Let’s dive right in

Maybelline’s Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser is supposed to instantly erase pores to leave the skin looking smooth.


I must admit, I was very impressed by this primer the first time I used it. It is silicone based so it does create a smooth canvas for makeup application. I found foundation application very easy and smooth. It really does make a difference to pores. I have small pores on my nose (more on how I permanently reduced my pores soon) and using the primer instantly reduced them, almost completely.

Apart from its pore reducing abilities, I found the primer to be pretty good too. For me, it gave my makeup a matte finish and held up all day. The primer spreads easily and comes out of the tube very smooth. It’s a clear primer and does not leave a white cast on the face. I didn’t experience any breakouts or irritation with this.


I think the Baby Skin is a very good primer and excellent for oily skin types looking for a good drugstore primer. I like this primer a lot but I probably won’t use it all over my face, only because of the matte finish it gave me. I personally prefer a more dewy/ natural finish especially in the winter and I felt as though my face looked dry even though it wasn’t. I would probably just use it around my t-zone where I get oily and my pores are.

If you like matte finishes then I think this primer will be a good base or another primer to add to your collection. If you are a fan of silicone based primers like I am, then you will definitely love this primer. It creates a nice soon canvas for you to work on. I just hope Maybelline increases its foundation shades here in the UK, I would love to try the Fit Me foundations. I think Baby Skin is a good dupe for the Benefit Porefessional.

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser is £7.99 and available from Superdrug

MUA ProBase Mattify Makeup Fixing Mist Review

MUA ProBase Mattify Makeup Fixing Mist Review


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

Mario Badescu Facial Spray Review

Makeup Setting sprays, Facial mists, Facial Sprays, whatever you want to call it, I love them! I have tried the whole lot- the good, bad and plain ugly LOL. Today, I am dishing on one of the good ones which is the Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater. Its cruelty free and paraben free

How I Use It

I have been using this to set my makeup and dampen my sponges for a while now- I’m half way down the bottle.  I use the spray to dampen my sponges for blending out concealer and on my brushes for highlighters. I mist my face with this after I apply my powder, allow it to dry (and it dries quickly too) then apply my blush, highlighter and mascara then go in with a final spritz. I really love the fact that it doesn’t smudge mascara or disturb eye shadows.

It smells nice and comes in a fine mist which means it doesn’t disturb my makeup. You can also use this underneath makeup or alone on a bare face. It’s also suitable for use on hair although I have never tried it that way.


The spray has been compared a lot to the Mac Fix Plus some saying it’s a dupe for it but in my opinion I don’t think it is. It takes away the powdery/dry look that happens when you set your makeup with powder and gives a lovely dewy finish but I don’t it’s as much as the Mac Fix Plus (maybe I need to do a side by side comparison since I haven’t used Fix Plus for a while? Hmm)

In terms of helping my makeup stay a bit longer I haven’t noticed any difference with that. It doesn’t have any oil controlling properties although it really doesn’t claim to do that and I don’t have very oily skin.  I think it’s very good for moisturising the skin and making it feel very soft. I do like it use it as the final step on my makeup free days.

Verdict- I like the spray for what it is but I don’t think it’s a dupe for the Fix Plus. I also thought it would be more expensive than what it is. It comes in two sizes and I have the smaller size (118ml) which is £7.50 on Beauty Bay

I would love to pick up some more items from this brand especially the Glycolic Cleanser.

P.S don’t worry my hair was properly styled before I left the house lol.

Beautify Large 6 Tier Clear Acrylic Organiser Review

Acrylic organisers are very popular for makeup organisation. They allow you to put your collection on display whilst the clear material means you know where everything is. The Muji drawers are very popular as they are made with good quality acrylic and easy to access for some. I prefer the 2 draw Muji Acrylics as they are quite deep compared to their 5 draw ones. But as my collection grows, it’s getting more expensive to get loads of these instead of investing in one large one! Enter my new Beautify Large 6 Tier Clear Acrylic Organiser.

Features & Dimensions


  • Dimensions: L24 x W24 x H30cm
  • Hinged flip top lid
  • Removable dividers

What fits in the Beautify Large 6 Tier Clear Acrylic Organiser?



One of the main reasons I purchased this organiser was to fit most of my bulkier skincare & makeup items that don’t fit in the Muji drawers. I am very happy it fits bulkier skincare items like I showed in the video. It also fits the Sasha Buttercup Powder. The acrylic is very good quality and it’s quite heavy. It arrived within 2 days and packaged very well- there weren’t any scratches on it!

I really do love this organiser. It is a bit on the pricey side but for what it can fit and I very happy with it. I do wish the top drawer was movable but I am happy with it. I have a growing collection and this organiser actually holds a lot of my items which means it’s not thrown in my box under my vanity lol. It also means I can use a lot of stuff- honestly once I put it in that box I usually forget about it!


Makeup lovers, you will love this! It holds a lot of stuff and the material is very sturdy and strong. The seller offers free & fast 2-day shipping so you will be getting your organiser in no time! They have an extra-large organiser and smaller organisers in different colours, it’s worth checking them out! I hope the video helps because there’s nothing more frustrating than trying to buy an organiser but not knowing which of your products will fit!

It’s a small investment if you have already invested in your makeup/ skincare collection then this is worth it!

Beautify Large 6 Tier Clear Organiser is £37.99 and available from EBay.

Seller name is Domu-marketplace

Makeup/ skincare collection post? Hmm


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!)
