ELF Cosmetics: Makeup Mist and Set

The elf cosmetic line has been around for 8 years. In fact, currently, they are having an anniversary sale on their website. You can take $8 off any order greater than $30. And, shipping is free. Check out their site for more details. But, you better hurry because this promo ends on 7/30.

It seems that I remember seeing elf cosmetics way before 2004. Regardless, this company has continued to increase in popularity and sales. Don’t let the inexpensive price scare you away. I’m finding more and more elf products that are a steal!

Here is one that I picked up a couple of weeks ago…

This is Makeup Mist & Set. After you have completed application of your makeup, you lightly mist this product over your face and it helps to set the look. The website likens it to hairspray for your face. But, this is like a refreshing mist made with aloe, green tea, cucumbers and vitamins A, C and E. All those ingredients spell good stuff for your skin!

This spray pump bottle holds just a tad over 2 oz. I use 2 to 3 pumps at a time, so it will last a good, long time. I have never used a makeup setting spray before. Yet, I thought it would feel cooling after I put on my makeup in the morning. I wasn’t disappointed. And, you don’t have to use it just for setting makeup. I use it after I remove my makeup, again, for the cooling effect. It’s even good to use during the day just to feel refreshed.

There isn’t any fragrance to speak of and it doesn’t leave a tacky or sticky residue. It just feels cooling.

Makeup Mist & Set only costs $3. That’s a rather easy investment to treat yourself. I wear mineral foundation and it doesn’t smear or make it blotchy. I’m glad that I took the chance of trying something new.

How about you? Have you tried this or do you use a makeup setting spray?
