Makeup Revolution Amazing Makeup Fixing Spray | Review

Apologies for another Makeup Revolution review, I'm trying out so many of their new products at the moment, you all seem to be enjoying my reviews though so you can look forward to lots more! Recently Makeup Revolution have brought out a few products that are more skincare based, one of them being a budget makeup fixing spray. I've tried this out with lots of different foundations and in nearly all weathers now so it is definitely about time I told you what I think about it.




This has been titled as the ultimate product in the professional range, it is not surprising though as it promises to protect your makeup against heat, humidity, cold and windy conditions for up to 8 hours. This is the perfect time of year to test it out because over the past few weeks it has been really hot, cold and it hasn't stopped raining! 

I have dry skin so I don't usually have any problems with makeup staying on but this recent hot weather has been ruining my makeup, nothing seems to stay on for very long. I was a bit worried when I saw the ingredients list on this product, it does contain a lot of alcohol and the smell definitely gives that away. When you spray it the smell of alcohol is very prominent but I have found this doesn't linger once the product is on your skin thankfully. I did think that it would dry out my skin but I haven't had any problems with that either, I was really quite surprised!

I have found that it can take a good few minutes to sink in after spraying it on, although at the moment I'm quite enjoying the refreshing feeling for a couple of minutes as it is so hot! However I think overall I would prefer the mist to be a little lighter. On to the important part though, does it actually keep my makeup in place? I have found that my foundation does look a lot better at midday when I use this spray compared to when I don't. I don't think it makes a major difference but I'm happy with the results that I've had, I think if you have oily skin you will see more benefits than I have.

I think if you can see the past the strong alcohol scent then you will really enjoy using this as a little addition to your makeup routine!

Do you use a makeup fixing spray? 

Thanks for reading,

  1. I just ordered this during their Free Worldwide Shipping weekend and the claim of protecting my makeup against heat, humidity, cold and windy conditions for up to 8 hours was the deciding factor in this purchase. I have combination-oily skin and hoping this will help keep my makeup in place. Thanks for the review! :)

    1. The free shipping has tempted me so much but I'm trying to resist and save my pennies for a Primark shopping trip! I really hope you like it, I think it will definitely help keep your maekup up for longer as you have combination-oily skin, let me know how you get on with it! :) x

    2. Will do! :) I live in the Philippines, so the claim on humidity is bound to get tested. I tried resisting the free shipping offer, but it's my first Makeup Revolution purchase and have been eyeing their Iconics since I saw a review online, so I gave in to it. :)

  2. I use a W7 fixing spray and it works wonders, it seems to have the same pros and cons as this spray. Too bad Revolution isn't available in my town. x

    1. I didn't know W7 did one, will look out for that and see how the two compare maybe! It isn't available in my town yet either, it is rolling out into more and more Superdrug stores though x

  3. Might try this for when I go back to work. Foundation has nearly always gone pap by midday so hopefully this would help!
