Brandefy Review

Our opinion: MAC is a fine lightweight mist and is suitable for all skin types. It has a matte finish with a slight dew. What makes MAC better is that it can be used for a few different things. It's a refresher spray & a setting spray so you can use it as a base before applying your makeup. You can spray it on shimmer eyeshadows before applying to the lid to get the brightest pigment & keep it in place. Unlike some other makeup setting sprays, MAC doesn’t contain film-forming agents, so it won’t clog pores. It leaves your face with an airbrushed look & keeps your makeup looking fresh all day even in humid temperatures. NYX is a semi-lightweight mist. It promises to prolong your makeup throughout the day. Our makeup guru noticed some breakouts near the T zone at the end of the day with this mist. The oils started coming through even though she used 'Matte Finish.' The nozzle is okay - it can sometimes disperse too much product which feels like droplets rather than a mist. With setting sprays you want a fine mist because the droplets will disturb your makeup. We'll be sticking with the name brand on this one.
