If you’re an avid watcher of beauty videos from the US and UK you would have seen this bad boy pop up quite a bit in the past couple of months. I’m referring to the much hyped about Loreal Infallible Setting Spray. All the bloggers I watch absolutely love this setting spray so I was super excited to try this out. When I was in Hawaii I went to about 15 drugstores trying to find this and was lucky enough to pick up 2 bottles. It retailed for approximately $15USD.
The Loreal Infallible Fixing Mist is now available in Australia for $24.95. The black bottle on the left is from the US and the one on the right is the Australian edition. You will also notice the name is slightly different.
What Loreal says it does and how to use:
Use this refreshing mist immediately after applying your makeup to lock in that ‘just applied’ look or during the day to refresh your look.
After applying your foundation – and setting with powder if desired – hold the bottle at arm’s length and spray a light mist onto the face in an X motion (for complete coverage) followed by a T motion (to focus on the oilier T-zone).
I’ve tried this both with setting my foundation with powder and without and the verdict is in…. It doesn’t work for me in summer. However I’ve been using it again in winter to fix my makeup, too look less powdery and its been working a gem! It’s even prolonged the wear of my makeup.
However in summer it has done nothing to prolong the wear of my makeup. I’ve tried it extensively with various foundations, even my favourite long wearing Tarte foundation but found it made me extra oily.
With the Australian version of the spray I found the mist to be a lot more wet and also left a white powdery residue. Another blogger also had the same result so when I heard that I made sure to shake the bottle well, but still found a white residue settle on my face.
Overall it’s a no for me. I think it works better with liquid foundation but honestly I think using powder to set my makeup does a better job. So many people are raving about it but personally I’m not a fan of it as a setting spray.
