Fix That Base

Fixing mists have always been something that I haven't quite understood the need for, much like primers. But as I've experimented more with makeup over the last few years I wanted to give it a trial and to see if it actually worked. Since many fixing sprays out there are from higher end brands such as Urban Decay I was impressed to see that drugstore brands, such a L'Oreal have really upped their game. After reading a few reviews for myself I decided to pick up the Infallible Fixing Mist from L'Oreal 
and give it a try for myself.

After completing my makeup I spray this product over my face to help set it in place. I always found it a bit bizarre to essentially spray water, over your face, after spending all that time perfecting your makeup. However when using this product I noticed that my foundation doesn't break up throughout the day and particularly powder products, stay in place all day. This eliminates the need for touching up your makeup throughout the day and is the perfect partner to help make your makeup last all night too. The liquid itself doesn't smell chemically or particularly disgusting which is a plus for me. I have been using this product for around a month now and haven't experience any breakouts or irritations to the skin so I am very much impressed. Since using the product I have roughly used around a quarter of the bottle which for me is very impressive for over a months use, especially when looking at the affordable price.

The Verdict
If you are also a bit baffled about fixing sprays then this one from L'Oreal is a great base to start from before spending a lot of money on higher end equivalents. I have been very impressed with the results of this product and would highly recommend that you give it a go yourself if you want to help your make up last longer.
