L’Oreal Fixing Mist or Urban Decay Setting Spray?

L'Oreal Infallible Fixing Mist

I have been a long time fan of the Urban Decay De-Slick makeup setting spray.  It costs £22* for 118ml and £9* for the 30ml travel size that I  now own.  It does such a wonderful job at holding everything in place and taking away the powdery look of any finished makeup look.  I think I’ve been using it for quite a few years, rarely straying to other setting sprays – mostly because there have been no others to really test out.

Then along came the most recent flurry of setting sprays.  I’ve been testing a few out, using my Urban Decay as my base line.  First up is the L’Oreal Infallible Fixing Mist, which costs £7.99* for 100ml, much more affordable thank the De-Slick setting spray.  The Fixing Mist is a cloudy liquid that you have a give a good shake before using, there is a little ball bearing to help mix it.  There is a hint of a floral scent from the spray, which I don’t mind to be honest.  The claims of the Fixing Mist:

Our first ever make-up finishing spray sets and extends your make-up, the that ‘just applied’ look.  Anti-melt, anti-fade, anti-crack.  A micro-fine texture to set and extend your make-up look.”

To cut a long story short, I very much agree with their statement.  It is a very fine mist, the actual bottle itself is great at spraying – I’ve had issues in the past with sprays themselves spitting at me and I’d end up with droplets on my face, not a great look.  The Fixing Mist is fabulous at holding my makeup in place all day.  All in all it’s a wonderful spray!  I would very much recommend it, I will likely use this for a long time to come.  I love it just as much as my Urban Decay De-Slick setting spray and to be honest I love the L’Oreal Fixing Mist a wee bit more, it’s more affordable, this means I have more available money to buy more makeup!
