NYX Matte Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray is one of two new setting sprays the brand introduced for Spring 2013. These are 2 oz bottles for $8 each.
I’m a little iffy on Setting Sprays as I’m always sorta wary of spritzing a just made up face with what is essentially water combined with some other ingredients. It’s kinda like, wait, hold on a second, I just did my makeup now you want me to mist myself madly with water? Ummm no…!
But actually some do have benefits. Particularly if you’re a mineral girl or you use powder to set. A small amount of setting mist actually will give your makeup a more refined finish and in some cases they really do prolong the wear of makeup.
Does NYX’s version work?
You probably remember my love of Sana’s Hadanomy Collection from last year. This year, Sana has introduced a new selection of these hydrating skincare products with a new formula.
Placenta extract is supposedly huge in Japan at the moment. No great surprise as unusual ingredients including snail slime and bird’s nest are typical trendings in Asia.
I’m unsure exactly what sort of placenta is involved in the making of the Hadanomy Aqua Placenta Collection. The placenta is marine derived which according to a few sites is actually from the Hokkaido Salmon. Kinda sorta skeptical how much placenta actually goes into the makings of products like this though!
Either way Sana Hadanomy Aqua Placenta Moisturizing Lotion Mist quickly made it onto my must buy list.
Take a look!
I picked up HadaLabo Gokujyn Hyaluronic Acid Face Mist a few months ago on a whim since I loved the idea of adding another moisturizing mist to my stash.
I typically use mists after a shower before my makeup and in the evening after cleansing to add a bit more moisture to my skin as well as to refresh it. On a rare occasion I also use it to set my makeup but this isn’t often.
Considering how great HadaLabo products are at retaining moisture I was quite excited to give their mist a try.
I’ve said it before…
I simply don’t need another bottle of facial mist. I’m terribly addicted to them. Spritz here, mist there.
I remind myself of Peter O’Toole as Zaltar in Supergirl, “Spritz?” You either totally remember these geeky things or you don’t, it’s a gift.
But I do have an excuse this time. Just look at the Tony Moly Pocket Bunny Moist Mist and tell me how you could resist?
If there’s one thing I don’t need more of in my life….
Not another facial mist.
But My Beauty Diary Orange Blossom White Lotus Moisture Mist is so terribly tempting!
