MUA Fixing Mist | A Review

MUA Pro-Base Fixing Mist- £4.99- Superdrug

Hello Lovelies,

Recently it occurred to me that most of my reviews have been positive ones and that's probably because when I find a gem of a product I like to share it with you all. However, I also think that reviews that aren't always positive are helpful too. So here is one of those.

I picked up this product around a month ago now so I have had a good amount of time (and lots of hours at work) to test it out. The product is a make-up fixing mist which claims to; moisturise and hydrate skin, have an easy application and have 8 hours of fixing power.

Now, here is where the product gives me mixed emotions, yes I think it is very easy to apply. Once you have completed your make-up you just hold it at arms length and spritz in horizontal lines, easy enough. Yes I also think it gives your make-up a dewy fresh look. However, No it doesn't last 8 hours for me.
For freshening up your make-up midday I think it is perfect, however, in terms of it keeping my make-up in place it just doesn't work. I still have a lot of shine break through, creasing around my smile lines and eyeliner bleeding.

For this reason I would probably not recommend this product if you are looking for staying power for your make-up. If you are however looking for a product to re-fresh your make-up midday then this product does a good job for just £4.99. I'm not sure whether the fact that I have quite oily skin means that the product would be less effective for me than it would for someone who has normal to dry skin. So therefore if you have less oily skin it might be worth giving it a go. If you're like me and have fairly oily skin then I would say pass to this product.

There we have it guys, I hope you have enjoyed a slightly different review from me and if any of you have tried this product or any other fixing sprays please leave me a comment letting me know your thoughts on them!

Thank you for reading
