Locked & Loaded - Keep Your Face in Place!
For those of you who don't know, I live in Texas. What that means is our summers here are brutal. What that also means is that none of us here are strangers to having our makeup melt off in the 100 degree (or higher) heat. For this reason, I am a big believer in a great setting spray. I prefer a dewey foundation but I don't want it to be sliding all over the place so I lock it in with a matte setting spray. This may sounds contradictory but to me, it's just what works best.
I'm not kidding when I tell you that I have tried at least 20 different setting sprays over the years. Some of them were okay but I continuously found myself feeling underwhelmed. I would still have problems with makeup transferring or breaking up in the hot sun. **Drumroll please** ENTER Ben Nye Final Seal! This stuff has helped me save face (did you catch that pun?) on countless occasions.
Final Seal is a matte finishing spray for your makeup. Apply your makeup as normal and finish off with a few sprays of this. Spray it from about a foot away with your eyes closed. This has some sort of minty scent to it which can slightly burn if you open your eyes too early so keep those eyes shut! I swear by this product and the best part is the price tag. This is SO much cheaper than other setting sprays and in my opinion works 1,000 times better. You can purchase a 2 ounce bottle from Amazon.com HERE! I buy the big 16 ounce container and just refill my spray bottle as I run out.
I just read a rumor that this is the setting spray that the Princesses at Disney World wear when they will be out working in the heat all day. If it's Disney Princess approved, you know it's good. Am I right?!? Anywhoo, be sure to get your hands on this! It's sure to save you at those pool parties or beach days when you "aren't wearing any makeup" ;)
