Review It! :)

Hello lovelies!

Don't you just hate it when you spend time in the morning making yourself all pretty and flawless to end up realising that by the end of the day most of your makeup has disappeared? I certainly do.
I want my makeup to stay put all day and all night until I take it off at the end of the day.

The two products I will be reviewing are makeup finishing sprays.
- Australis Makeup Finishing Spritz (~$10)
- MAC Fix+ (~$30)

There are a few reasons why you would use a finishing spray.
1. To set your makeup for that final flawless finish
2. To set your makeup to keep it last longer
3. Keep your skin and makeup looking fresh throughout the day

 Australis Makeup Finishing Spritz
I have always been interested in finishing sprays and wanted to try out the Urban Decay All Nighter Long Lasting Setting Spray but of course its hard to get in Australia unless you buy it overseas.
This seemed like a great alternative and at a cheaper and affordable price too.
At first I regretted buying this product as I couldn't get used to the floral lavender fragrance since I really don't like anything that smells like lavender.
Disregarding the scent, the product itself worked very well. It sprayed evenly on the face and dried to a finish where it actually felt like the makeup had a protective shield over it.
It also added a bit of moisture to the skin helping it feel softer.
I have just run out of this product which lasted me a very long time and I will definitely repurchase it again.

MAC Fix+
This product is a beauty cult within the makeup community. I think anyone who is into makeup would have tried or purchased this product.
It is what the name says it is. It fixes the makeup to the skin and helps keep the makeup stay put and look flawless.
Unlike the Australis spray, the Fix+ has a subtle fragrance that was not at all overwhelming.
It sprays a fine mist and dries very quickly giving it a quick fix. If I had a small spray bottle I would carry it around with me and spray it throughout the day just to give myself a bit of a fresh lift.

Both products work just as well and are quite comparable.
If the Australis spray fixed the scent then it would be the perfect spray I will place this as my HG(holy grail) product.

Do you guys use a finishing spray? If so which one?

Ciao lovers xx


  1. I've never tried a finishing spray but it might be a good investment if it makes my makeup last longer^^ Though I do find MAC to be quite expensive at times. X

    1. yeah MAC can get expensive here unfortunately :(

  2. I use the Australis one, and love it! Don't mind the smell at all though (but I guess that's personal taste!)
    I'd love to try the MAC but it's just too expensive for me :(
