Review: Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Oil Control Makeup Fixing Spray

Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Oil Control Makeup Fixing Spray

It`s been a couple of months since my last proper product review, so forgive me if I am a bit rusty. I mean, I had an introductory post about Sukin skincare, but not proper reviews. So let`s change that and talk about my latest makeup obsession. As some of you might be aware, Makeup Revolution is one of my favourite drugstore brands. Their prices are ridiculously low but more important than that, the quality of their products is phenomenal. Most of the times everything I try from them becomes a favourite of mine and this product is no exception. 

If you check out Superdrug, you`ll find this mighty declaration:

” 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.”

I do know how advertising works and most of the times these big claims are nothing but empty promises. Well, it is not the case with this product. I can`t vouch for 12 hours as I don`t keep my makeup on for that long, but I can honestly say that everything looked perfect after my 8 hours shift. No shine shine or fading.

Obviously, we all have different skin types and what works for me might not work for you. My skin is a weird combination between oily and dehydrated – dry. If you`re confused, let me elaborate. I have really sensitive skin around my cheeks and a very arid under-eye area. But my forehead and chin tend to shine like Lady Gaga`s disco ball. I did not have any problems with this fixing spray, it was easy to use and it did not irritate my skin. Like I said, my makeup still looked brand new after I finished work and I was pleasantly surprised by that. The pump makes it very easy to apply and one spritz is enough to last you throughout the day.

Personally, I would recommend this fixing spray to anyone, regardless of their skin type. It`s a great product and at 5£, it`s ridiculously cheap. Even if you end up not liking it, it`s not a big investment.

P.S. Thank you all for the lovely comments on my previous post. Your support means the world to me. After reading your comment I realized that sadly I am not the only one that lacks confidence in pictures. But we`re here for each other and we try to lift each other up, which is fantastic.

    The price of this product is amazing, and I am glad it works for you. I haven't tried any products from Makeup Revolution, I keep adding to my cart but end up not purchasing anything! YiotaPinkDaisyLoves

    I am so confused by setting sprays! Like do you skip the powder and just spray it over foundation and concealer because it's doing the job the powder would do? This one sounds like it has great staying power!Di from Max The Unicorn

      Personally, I like to apply powder as well and then spritz this as a finishing touch.

    I've not tried a MUR setting spray, but this one sounds so good! I don't have oily skin, so I was a little put off, so it's good to know it doesn't really matter xxHannah | luxuryblush

      My skin varies from very dry to oily, but this spray worked for every situation.

    I tend to opt for Urban Decay's setting spray so it's great to know about a budget alternative that is just as good!Musings & More

      I have had my eyes on the Urban Decay spray for eyes, but it was always too expensive for me.

    This sounds really good, MUR have some amazing products that aren't talked about as much. I would have gone for this, but I use their primer water both under and over my makeup, but I'll keep a note of this x Velvet Blush

      Haven`t tried their primer water, we`ll check it out in store.

    I need a new setting spray! I've heard the nyx one is pretty good but I still haven't tried it. This one sounds good too

      I have heard good things of the NYX one as well, but I think this one is cheaper and you also get more product.

    This is so good to hear! I really like Makeup Revolution products. Excellent quality and very good price points. Will have to see if this is available in the States.
