Finishing sprays are a boring but necessary part of my make-up routine. I have dabbled with paying £17 for Mac's famous Fix+ but after seeing Kylie Jenner's make-up artist use the Mario Badescu Rosewater and Herb Spray to finish her make-up, I was instantly amazed at A. The lovely dewy finish she had and B. The price when I looked it up. At £10 from BeautyBay.com, I had to try it out!
So to compare the two, Mac Fix+ is £17 for 100ml and the Mario Badescu spray is £10 for 236ml. The price difference is an obvious selling point, but in terms of versatility, the rosewater wins 1000 times over. You can use it on your face as a moisturiser, to soothe skin, as a refresh during the day and even on your hair. The rosewater packs a punch with the ingredients, with better extracts such as Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, which moisturises and improves damaged skin. Mac use Cucumber fruit extract for their soothing property in Fix+ and I personally find Aloe to be more appropriate for the job!
I like to spray this on my face when I wake up as a quick, easy and light moisturiser. I love the fact that it comes out so light and in such a fine mist. It also never interferes with my make-up when I use it as a finishing spray, instead it leaves a dewy look without compromising the look. I personally don't mind the rose scent that it has too, although I would prefer it to be fragrance free. Side note, if you're into the importance of a brand not testing on animals, the Mario Badescu spray is not tested on animals.
