Review Illamasqua Hydra Setting Spray 100ml

If there’s one product every makeup lover should own to keep your look fresher for longer, it’s a reliable finishing spray. If you’ve thought about updating yours to a more hydrating formula for the warmer months, Illamasqua’s Hydra Setting Spray is the one! Firstly, the pump releases an ultra-fine lightweight mist (not droplets!), so you’ll get a seamless soft dewy finish every time. This vegan setting spray will set your makeup beautifully melting powders into your base, with no tight or dry feeling. The ingredients include Pea Peptides which are rich in Amino Acids and provide moisture to the skin.

Product Review: Illamasqua Hydra Setting Spray 100ml (£20)

My skin is normal to oily. What surprised me was the lack of oil in my T-Zone, which is usually my problem area. I’m putting it down to the hydrating properties of this setting spray, as sprays that leave me too dry cause my skin to over-compensate and produce more oil. After a 7.5 hour day at the office, my full face of makeup still looked fresh and in place all day. Add, a relaxing evening spent at home (roughly 4 hours) before taking my makeup off, barely any oil broke through in problem areas. If you’d rather miss doing touch-ups, Illamasqua Hydra Setting Spray is a must-have!
