A Makeup Setting Spray For Less Than £10♥

Makeup setting sprays have recently came by like a storm to the beauty world, mainly because everyone was wanting to achieve that "dewy" makeup look. I bought one because I just wanted to set my makeup, as the name of the product would suggest. When I was flicking through an Avon brochure ages ago, I managed to find a setting spray. It was fairly new to the book so was a bargain price of £3.50. How could a makeup addict resist? 

The Avon Make-up Setting Spray comes in a black bottle, which is plastic and transparent so you can see just how much product you have remaining. Bearing in mind I only paid £3.50, I believe the packaging looks sleek and almost professional. It comes with a cap over the pump to prevent any loss of product.

 So, how exactly does it work? I like to spray it after I've applied my face makeup (ie primer, foundation, concealer, powder etc). By spraying it on top of my makeup, it will remove any excess powder which will reduce your chances of looking cakey. With it removing any excess powder, it's more likely that the spray will actually be able to reach your makeup and set it. In doing so, you will be able to achieve that dewy look, and that all depends on how much you use. I usually do three sprays down my face and it distributes itself evenly.

The formula isn't sticky or drying, and there isn't a distinct scent - I have been using this for a while and haven't happened to pick up on any scent. It dries almost instantly so no waiting required. According to the avon website, it's also enriched with vitamins A, C and E. For 125ml, it now retails for only £6.

Will you be trying this out? What are some of your favourite setting sprays?

  2. Oooh, I've loving Avon makeup recently, I'll have to keep an eye out for this when the next brochure comes in! I've been loving the Makeup Revolution setting spray. It smells a bit like marzipan, which I love haha.

  4. This looks great. I use the Makeup Revolution setting spray which I think is only about £5. I haven't used anything from AVON in ages, but it seems they've stepped up their game x

  5. Ooooh, I wish Avon was easier to get my hands on in the US! I personally use Mac Fix+ or the Pixi Glow Mist (great for dry skin and a dewy finish, though it doesn't "set" the way the other sprays do). I've also heard wonderful things about the L'Oreal Infallible Setting Spray!

  19. I have very dry skin so I have never tried a setting spray and I know this is weird but I hate spraying things in my face. Nevertheless, I am very curious about it. For summer and humid weather, I would imagine it makes a big difference

  22. I've used so many setting sprays Urban Decay, MAC, drugstore, etc. but sometimes they can be so drying! This one sounds so hydrating and almost like skincare so I'm intrigued :) The one I'm using right now is from a K beauty brand and it's infused with vitamins similar to this but it's on the pricer side, so I wonder if it would be a good dupe. Great find!

  40. I want to build a collection of drug store setting sprays, I love the NYX matte finish one as someone who's not all that into the dewy skin! I just want my makeup to last, like you. I can never really tell if they make a huge difference tbh, I kinda just spray it for the idea. Like, it helps to last a little longer, especially with a primer, but I'm never sure if that's the spray working or the primer! I have dry skin so staying isn't too much of an issue with my makeup!

  43. I feel that Avon is a seriously underrated beauty brand. I've had so many products from them recently. I really want to try this next. I've been using the NYX finishing powder which is really long lasting & sets my makeup with a lovely matte finish.

  45. This looks fab for the price! I've tried both the Urban Decay De-slick and the Makeup Revolution ones and liked them both, but I've seen some that would literally spray blobs of powder onto your face if you don't shake them properly!

  55. When I was in my early teens, Avon was actually the first beauty brand I tried! It's a good job really because I thankfully avoided the Maybelline DMM hahah and used the Avon mattifying foundation instead. I haven't tried Avon makeup in quite a while but this setting spray sounds like such a bargain, even cheaper than the NYX one which I love!
