When I first began using face makeup primers, I reached for the kind with a gel-like consistency that came with pumps or in tubes, such as the Make Up For Ever HD High Definition Primer (reviewed back in 2010) and the Make Up For Ever All Mat Face Matifying Primer (reviewed in 2011).
(Wow, I just took a walk down memory lane, and it made my eyes water a bit because of some happy thoughts. I forgot about those old posts until I sat down to write this review. I’ve been on quite a blogging journey when you compare posts from back then to now. Hopefully I continue to improve for years to come!)
Then, I was curious about the makeup setting sprays on the market and tried those. (You may remember me reviewing the Urban Decay All-Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray back in early 2014.)
Makeup priming and setting sprays are my favourite because they feel lightweight, and you just need about three sprays of each for your entire face. One regular-sized bottle lasts for several months, and they are quite affordable.
The Skindinavia The Makeup Finishing Spray and Skindinavia The Makeup Primer Spray in the Oil Control version are my favourites, and they’re the only makeup sprays I have used since finishing up my Urban Decay setting spray.
This review was a long time coming because although I’ve ordered from Skindinavia several times now and went through about 2 or 3 bottles of each, I finally am sitting down to share my thoughts.
I always order these sprays from the Skindinavia website when I’m running low, and by the time they arrive, I need to use the new ones right away. By the time I remembered that I needed to photograph them so I can work on a review, the bottles have some foundation on them from my fingers or have other smudges and marks.
Finally, this time I decided to order the set of Skindinavia makeup sprays a little early to ensure that I wouldn’t just crack open the bottles before photographing them. Hehe, my plan worked, and here we are with this review!
