Setting Spray Saturday – @tartecosmetics Shape Tape Stay Spray Vegan Setting Spray

April 25, 2020

When I placed a recent order on @tartecosmetics’ website, I got a free sample of their Shape Tape Stay Spray Vegan Setting Spray ($25 for 4 ounces – and that excited me because I thoroughly enjoy the idea of potentially finding a great setting spray and especially love free samples!

What it claims:

🔘 Locks makeup for 16 hours – no melting, cracking, fading, or settling into fine lines

🔘 Micro-fine mist instantly sets your makeup without a sticky or greasy residue

🔘 Helps waterproof, sweat-proof & transfer-proof makeup

🔘 Gives the appearance of smoother-looking skin

🔘 Cucumber & aloe extracts help refresh & soothe

🔘 Vegan and cruelty-free

My experience:

🔘 I used this on top of a lot of my favorite long-lasting products because I wanted to see if it could surprise me by making them even better. Then, to compare, I wore the exact same products the next day, without setting spray.

👎🏻 I don’t like that the second ingredient is alcohol.

👍🏻 The scent is pleasant.

👎🏻 The nozzle, at least on the travel size I have, doesn’t allow for a lot of product output, so I found myself spraying quite a bit in order to feel like it was coating the entire area.

👍🏻 After over twelve (12) hours of wear both times, I did notice less oiliness on the day I used the setting spray.

My verdict?

Even though this product didn’t wow me the first time around, I look forward to testing it out with base combinations that I tend to encounter a lower amount of wear time with. Since this claims to basically take any foundation and turn it into something long wear and transfer-proof, the real test will come then. I’ll update with my final thoughts in an upcoming empties post!
