Ever since my skin type changed from dry to combination dry, I found myself struggling to keep my makeup in place. The last thing you want to experience after carefully applying your base is for it to slide off some areas of your face after a couple of hours. So, to avoid that, there are a few products that help to prolong makeup: primers, powders or setting sprays. I’m well familiar with the first two, but using a natural setting spray was an entirely new experience for me.
Lily Lolo Makeup Mist 50ml / $18 – £10.50
It is the first setting spray that I own, so I don’t have anything to compare it with. I always rely on powders to increase the longevity of my makeup, and they work great. However, with a combination of harsh winter weather and heating, sometimes powders can look cakey after repeated application. The idea of a natural setting spray, at least of this Lily Lolo Makeup Mist, is that it refreshes the skin and keeps it in place longer without setting into fine lines. I also like the ingredient list of this vegan mist because it includes soothing and softening ingredients such as panthenol, aloe vera, and goji berry extract. Considering all this, how could I not be interested in trying this thing?!
The Makeup Mist is applied by spraying it directly to skin 2-4 times in an X and T formation. You can instantly notice that it leaves the skin looking radiant and refreshed. It takes some time for the spray to settle, but the glow stays even after the mist completely dries. I didn’t notice any stickiness after using it. Though, I wouldn’t say that it prolongs my makeup either. My nose started to shine as usual after a few hours. However, what it really does is it reduces the dryness in my forehead and cheeks. Also, it removes any powdery look that your foundation or powder might leave. But I need to reapply the mist a couple of times during the day for these results to stay.
Overall, I’m satisfied with the spray and will continue using it. I can not comment on whether I would repurchase it just yet. I need more time to decide that, but I’ll keep you updated. I will definitely be looking into other natural setting sprays. If you have any recommendations, please leave them in the comments!
