I can't seem to turn my library books in on time! I am an award winning international makeup artist. I am an activist. A student. A feminist. I am a disabled mom/Veteran/dog owner. I once took a huge leap of faith and married a handsome young Marine and now we have 2 kids and 2 dogs and are working on leading our best lives.
NOTE TO BRANDS: I practice body positivity. I am not interested in any weight-loss or dieting programs whatsoever. I also will not review or negatively review brands who actively do harm to the self-image of little girls by endorsing weight loss programs, exercise programs, or body shaming of any type for children of any age.
This is a great setting spray for the price. You can go heavy with this and it won’t mess up your makeup. Dewey isn’t as shiny as you would think. I feel it has a more natural finish than the matte version.
If you don’t have any setting spray and you over powder your face and there’s a drugstore on the way to your date with 50% off maybelline products this would be an acceptable solution to not make you look as dry. It lasts for a very short period, makes your skin look shiny not Dewey. I also think of you spray too much it begins to deteriorate your makeup/ foundation.
2 stars because sometimes something is better than nothing and this fits into that category. If you have terrible eyebrows and want to leave the house in a hurry but you literally have huge bald spots, you could keep this in your car for on the go. Then you could use this alcohol heavy lip stain in marker form to fill them in and people who need glasses or can’t see well from a distance would probably find you to possess perfectly okay looking brows. For the rest of us, it’ll just look like you got bored at work and used a tan colored sharpie with an old tip to fill those babies in. But at least you won’t look like Voldemort.
I picked this up because Tati said it was pretty good. It was meh. I liked the formula and how it felt on my skin, but it did not cover my freckles even though everyone is like “oooh! Full coverage!!” Also: this oxidized quickly and made it at least 2 shades darker.
I picked this up because it was an emergency and I needed a red to go over my liquid lip while I was out one night. It did it’s job in that it prevented my lips from chapping and covered the flaking, hours old dark red lippie. I tried it on its own the next morning and within an hour it had feathered and bled outside my lip line and then completely disappeared after coffee.
This product is awesome but cost prohibitive. I received a free sample and liked it enough to buy it, but I find myself only using it for special occasions because of the price. It truly is like superglue for your makeup though. It can be tricky to blend if you are a makeup novice so I would consider this a pro product.
I bought this because I needed something gentle yet effective for my face. I am a swimmer so it needs to get the chlorine off without stripping my skin. I actually tried rubbing it on my dry face BEFORE swimming and it acts as a fantastic barrier! Try it sometime if you swim, it’s great and then you can shower and soap it right off. I will repurchase this.
