L'oreal infallible fixing mist


Setting sprays are a big part of makeup nowadays, there's setting sprays to keep you matte all day, sprays to keep you looking dewy and even setting sprays specific for day time makeup and night time makeup. One of the most popular setting sprays that I've seen is the Urban Decay all nighter setting spray, I've heard so many amazing reviews of this product but the only thing putting me off it was the price. I mean £22 for a bottle of face spray is a little much in my opinion, so when I saw L'oreal had their own setting spray out and for £8 I thought why not give that a go because maybe it'll be just as good as the urban decay one but for a fraction of the price- what can they put in a setting spray water that can make it that different anyway?


The first thing I have to say about this product is before use you've got to shake it like crazy. On the first day I used it I could see a white residue at the bottom of the bottle so I shook it a normal amount thinking that would clear it and proceeded to use it. I was horrified when I saw that after a few spays I had white dots all over my face and lips which looked so bad I had to take my makeup off and start again.


This then put me off using it for a few days as I didn't want to risk messing up my makeup again. However after a little while I decided to test it out again and made sure to give it the shake of my life before using and this seemed to do the trick- thank god! I was left with a slightly more matte looking face and no white patches! Hooray!


Throughout the day I monitored how my face was looking and there was definitely a noticeable difference about the length of time my makeup lasted. It did however leave a few small areas on my face looking slightly patchy but other than that my makeup overall lasted longer.


In terms of the packaging and way this product looks I actually really like it, it's simple and sleek and actually looks quite professional I think. It's also quite heavily scented which I don't mind but if you aren't a fan of sweet smelling things to spray over your face then you probably wont like this as I find the scent to be quite strong.


Overall I do like this product but not as much as I was hoping too. The excessive shaking of it before use is slightly inconvenient for me because if you don't shake it enough then your whole makeup will be ruined and if your running to a schedule then that is not ideal.


I'd be really interested to know how you found this product an if you experienced the same problem with it as me. Thanks for reading.

  1. I've never tried this but it looks quite good, however I don't think I would deal with the risk of ruining your makeup if you don't shake it up properly! Have you tried any of the other products from this range, what are they like? x

  3. This always catches my eye when I go into boots! It is a shame about the residue problem because otherwise this sounds like a winner! Thanks for the great review,
