Makeup Revolution Oil Control Fixing Spray

Like most people, I am enjoying the journey that Makeup Revolution are on right now.  To see all these amazing products being released one after another is nothing short of amazing and I am sure for the people behind these amazing products it is very much like having their very own Chocolate Factory like Willy Wonka.

I was very kindly sent the Oil Control Fixing Spray to try and as I have had quite a lot of social events both work related, blogging related and family related, it has been really good to have something to put to the test and in all kinds of weather too!

I have combination skin which can be an absolute nightmare, make-up can either cling to my dry bits or slip off the oily bits, even with a primer.  Before this Makeup Revolution spray, I was using my trusty faithful setting powder from GOSH, which has been mentioned many times on my blog because it does help alleviate my problem slightly when it comes to keeping things in place on my face much longer, but that is a powder and not a spray, so switching from one to the other was no mean feat, especially when you have become quite used to and quite comfortable with it.       

Stop the shine & matte finish all day! New Oil Control Fixing Spray! Screams the product description with this Pro Fix Oil "New sister product for our PRO FIX, fixing spray.. Our Oil Control Fixing Spray is a lightweight setting spray that helps deflect surface shine for a natural matte finish. High Tech ingredients keep foundation and eye makeup in place, with NO smudging and NO fading. That ‘Just-Applied’ look for up to 12 hours".

Amazing claims for a product that costs just £5 when it will not only prevent smudging but also reduce the oily shine, prolong your make up and maintain a natural matte finish - wow!  The packaging isn't too over the top or fancy, what you see if what you get and I like that.  A white plastic bottle with some gold finishing to add a really nice finishing touch.  But what you really want to know is, does it work?

Having used this now for a few weeks, I have to say I am impressed. Once sprayed, the spray itself is really light weight, in so much as it doesn't feel like you have just spritzed some hairspray. Once you have sprayed Pro Fix, it literally dries in a matter of seconds, so you can spray and go essentially, no having to wait around for it to dry and it is also unscented which I am really pleased about because I am not a fan of chemically scented sprays for anything.

What has really impressed me though is that it does help to reduce my oiliness, especially on and around my nose and my forehead, which are my oiliest areas and is always the first place I use blotting paper when I feel the need. Does it keep my make-up matte? Yes I think it does and I also find that my make-up doesn't disappear mid-morning or even mid-afternoon, it stays all day I am at work, though naturally I touch up my lipstick because it is just something I do, but everything else remains in place and if I have an evening function, I actually don't need to re-apply a single thing, I am comfortable enough knowing that my make-up looks absolutely fine.  Add to that, it somehow manages to keep my skin feeling hydrated, soft and smooth.

So Pro Fix gets the big thumbs up from me, it does as it says it will do, lasts an average of 8-9 hours and keeps my shine at bay with one quick spritz as I am running out of the door and all for just £5 here it is an absolute bargain.

  3. I can't believe the price! I use Urban Decay fixing spray for my make-up, but it is a lot more expensive than this - so adding this product to my ever-growing list of must buys.

  17. This sounds great! I've been using the Urban Decay All Nighter Spray for years, but I feel that it's stopped working for me. I've really been interested in the Smashbox priming spray!
