Bit of a quickie post for you lot today!
A while back Elf had a 50% off sale or two and i just couldn't resist placing an order. I've previously owned the Elf Makeup Mist and Set but it sat on my shelf for over a year because i really wasn't fond of the scent (my nose is a little oversensitive when it comes to odd fragrances). But after seeing lots of rave reviews i decided to purchase another one in the sale because, why not?! I'm guessing either the formula has changed, mine was off or I'm just a big fuss pot because I'm pleased to report this one is much more pleasant!
I'm a big setting spray fan and totally adored my Urban Decay All Nighter but the cheapskate in me really does not like paying for it. The Elf Makeup Mist & Set comes in at a mere £3.75, yes its less product but still works out a hell of a lot cheaper in the long run, plus Elf often has huge sales or offers on their products making this even more of a bargain. I can be a bit heavy handed with my setting powder so a few spritzes of this seems to clear up the mess and give my skin a more dewy (less caked on) finish. I pretty much apply this every time i wear makeup as that last little finishing step.
Honestly, i can't really tell if this makes my makeup last any longer and I'm not claiming its a dupe for the Urban Decay or MAC options, but it does feel lovely and refreshing! And most importantly it is sating my need to spend silly amounts of money on the more expensive ones. Its something i will 100% repurchase although i might decant it into another bottle, purely because the nozzle/spray bit thingymajig doesn't give quite a fine a mist as i would like, but an old Fix + bottle should do the trick!
Overall i would highly recommend checking this little beauty out if you are looking for a budget friendly setting spray. Elf is available online on their website here and i believe they have one stand alone store in the UK, so keep your eyes peeled on their website for sales!
Have you tried Elf's Makeup Mist & Set?
