I’ve been hearing rave reviews about this finishing spray since I first saw it on The Today Show a while back, and I have to say it most definitely lives up to my expectations. Not only does it set your make-up, but it actually keeps it in place all day as promised.
And that’s something I most definitely need right now, seeing as how The Bay is pretty much a damn sauna, and the sweltering heat reaaaaaaaally doesn’t agree with my heavily made up face. You know what I’m talking about ladies- when you leave the house lookin’ fab and arrive at your destination looking like half your face meted off?
Well this stuff prevents that, with some kind of fancy pants technology that cools the surface of your skin by 20 degrees. You can actually feel the cooling sensation as soon as you spritz it on, which is quite refreshing when it’s so freakin’ hot outside you can see steam rising off the concrete. It does feel a little sticky at first, but once it dries that goes away and you can’t feel a thing.
And I have to say, it really did help seal my make-up in place all day – the only thing I had to touch-up in the whole 8 hours I was at work was my lip gloss. The next day, I even did a lunchtime workout with my co-workers and though my make-up did start to come off, it didn’t smear like it normally does.
The original version – the one I tried- is the most highly concentrated, but they make a bunch of different formulas suited for everything from dancing and weddings to travel. Mine was about $35 total with shipping for a 6oz bottle, which really isn’t bad considering how much money it’s been saving me on foundation now that I don’t need to touch up as often.
All in all, this is THE must have summer item. That being said, FALL WHERE ARE YOU!?!?
Final Verdict: LOVE IT!
