Make Up For Ever Mist & Fix Make-up Setting Spray
$48, from Sephora stores
Reformulated to better hydrate the skin, the spray is also made with nasturtium flower extract which supposedly adds radiance.
Review: The formula is indeed moisturising. It left my skin feeling supple and looking dewy the entire day.
My make-up also stayed on longer than usual; touch-ups to my foundation were unnecessary. Another plus: the light floral scent of the spray.
NYX Make-up Setting Spray Matte Finish
$15, from Sephora stores
A lightweight spray which promises to prevent make-up from melting, even when in contact with perspiration.
Review: Once the spray evaporated from my skin, it left behind a matte and velvety finish. It kept my make-up intact for most of the day, even while I had my lunch in a sweltering coffee shop.
However, my T-zone started to become oily by midday, so I had to touch up the area.
