Are makeup setting sprays worth it? Beauty enthusiasts stand divided on the issue. Some swear by them, and others could do without. We want to know what you think. Let us know below and then keep reading for more information on the products.
What Are Makeup Setting Sprays?
Makeup setting sprays are like hairspray, but for your face. They’re advertised as products that are sure to keep your makeup in place for hours. You know how halfway through the day you start seeing your foundation wear off? Or your blush starts to fade?
Not when you use a makeup setting spray, manufacturing companies say, when you spritz your face with the mist, it’s said that your beauty products will stay put through long hours at the office or nights spent dancing away.
Isn’t That What Makeup Primer is For?
Sort of. Makeup primers have similar claims. Apply them before the rest of your makeup routine, and your beauty products will stay in place longer, brands say. Primers, though, also sometimes correct skin discoloration and texture, allowing your makeup to apply more smoothly.
Makeup primers sometimes claim to diminish the appearance of wrinkles, too.
If I Use a Primer and Setting Spray Will My Makeup Last Even Longer?
Here’s where it gets tricky. We don’t know. And every person has a different opinion. Every makeup product works differently for each person, and you may not see the same results that your best friend sees, even when you use the same products.
That’s why we’re so interested in your take. Do you think that makeup setting sprays are worth it? Do they work, or should we scratch them off the list, detox our makeup bags, and toss them out? Let us know!
