The L’ORÉAL PARIS Infallible Fixing Mist comes in a translucent bottle with a black spray nozzle and a transparent cap that closes securely. This medium-sized has a capacity of 100 ml. So you can carry it around with you in your bag, but you won’t always need to since you’ll be spraying the L’Oréal Mist right before you leave only. The essential directions for use are listed on the bottle along with the components.
The L’ORÉAL PARIS Infallible Fixing Mist gives off a pleasant and faint floral scent upon application.
We tried this Fixing Mist during both daytime and nighttime to test the extent to which it protects your makeup look from all external factors. We noticed that spraying it on the face in the morning preserves your makeup look for a good period of time (between 6 to 8 hours). It also adds a fixed matte touch to your makeup despite sweating. During nighttime, this spray will hold your makeup down the way it is all throughout the night, and you will notice how fixed it is once you try to remove it, as you will have to exert some extra effort to wipe all the products off of your face.
We also tried this L’ORÉAL PARIS setting spray on several types of skin in order to test whether the effect differs. We noticed that it is an essential product for oily skin. The problem for women with this type of skin is that their makeup almost completely wears off in a very short period of time due to oil and sebum secretions, but this spray sets your makeup for a longer time with less shine.
As for sensitive skin, the L’ORÉAL PARIS Infallible Fixing Mist doesn’t cause any additional irritation or redness to the skin, so you can definitely use this spray to set makeup on it. However, if you have sensitive skin, whether dry or normal, we advise not you to spray a lot of this product on your face. We noticed that it can increase skin dryness after use, so go for only a little amount of this product to set your makeup and you won’t be experiencing any later side-effects, especially if you use it on a daily basis.
You should be extra careful when using this Fixing Mist. Based on our experience, if you don’t shake the bottle well prior to application, you will get white clumps of product all over your face. In case you’ve already applied your makeup before spraying, you might have to wipe it off and reapply it due to these clumps. So in order to use the Fixing Mist, you should shake the bottle properly around 10 times first until there’s no white powder left at the bottom of the bottle. You will notice that the bottle contains metal ball bearings that mix up the mist formula with the active ingredients found in the white substance. Upon shaking, place the bottle 20 to 25 cm away from your face, close your eyes and mouth, and spray it in the shape of an X then a T to set the makeup on your face.
