I literally just got done working an 11-hour shift for the second time this week. I’ve been up all night and although I’d like to sleep; it’s just not happening soon enough. So I figured I would talk to you as I wind down. Summer is quickly approaching and I think it’s harder to preserve your glam during hotter days. With this being said many of us go an extra mile just to add longevity to our makeup. This is where actual setting sprays become a must and I am not talking about Fix +.
Last month I picked up a travel size of Boscia’s “White Charcoal Mattifying MakeUp Setting Spray”. If you’ve read a few of my posts before; you’re probably wondering why I’d own such a product because I have dry skin. Honestly, Tarte has this amazing foundation-“Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation”- that simply makes me too dewy. Regardless of how much or little I apply; it always seems go left and I look greasy. I’ve also tried setting the foundation with different powders. It did not make a difference! So I put this spray to the ultimate test to see if it would solve my problem and not cause breakouts in the process.
The “White Charcoal Mattifying Makeup Setting Spray” in full size(5.07 oz) retails for $38.00. The travel size(1 oz) retails for $12.00. I bought mines at Sephora! Boscia claims this spray not only sets your makeup but, minimizes pores and keeps skin hydrated while being matte. I cannot attest to it minimizing because I didn’t notice a difference. However, my skin felt hydrated and I didn’t look like an oily mess. Boscia states it can be used before and after applying makeup. I only used it after application to set. But, if you actually have oily skin this may work in your favor. I used this product when I attended an outdoor wedding. My makeup lasted the whole night without a single touch-up and although I was sweaty; I did not look like it. I’d recommend this setting spray to anyone who want to preserve a face during the summer months. I do not think this product would ideal for dry skin in the winter.
Also, please shake this product well before using. If not it will leave white spots all over you. Picture dried up toothpaste on your face. I kid you not it is the same effect and it’s not flattering Sis! Comment down below if you have used this product before. I’ve love to hear for you!
