Setting Spray Saturday – @bareMinerals Dew Mist Setting Spray

May 9, 2020

Is it a crime to want dewy skin that you can control when you have oily skin you can’t? I didn’t think so and that’s why I always get excited to test out a new to me luminous setting spray. Today, it’s the @bareminerals Dew Mist Setting Spray ($28 for 3.4 ounces –!

What it claims:

🔘 A glow-giving setting spray that locks makeup in place, hydrates skin, and refreshes the look of your complexion anytime

🔘 Set makeup for extended wear while giving a fresh, natural looking glow

🔘 The clean, glow-giving formula contains Polychrome Mineral Pearls to illuminate the complexion with dewy radiance

🔘 Use throughout the day anytime skin needs a quick pick-me-up

My experience:

👎🏻 I never know if the way a sample size sprays is indicative of the way the full size sprays, but, since it’s the only reference point I have, I will assume it does. Unfortunately, this mist isn’t as fine as I’d like. While they were easily tapped out with a sponge and didn’t disrupt the makeup underneath, it was still not ideal to have little droplets all over my face.

👍🏻 I didn’t notice until I was in my car, sun shining on my face, looking in the rear view mirror that “Polychrome Mineral Pearls” meant glitter. I thought maybe I had just gotten heavy handed with highlighter that day, but nope, reading other reviews on @ultabeauty’s website, I was sure it was the setting spray that put it all over my face. Funny thing is, I didn’t mind it. The more sparkle the better, right?

👍🏻 My skin looked and felt hydrated.

👍🏻👎🏻 I didn’t notice it made my makeup last any longer than normal.

My verdict?

I’m on the fence with this product. Part of me wants to add it to my ever growing @ultabeauty shopping cart this very instant and the other part of me wants to pass the remainder of the sample I have to someone else. Two very opposing opinions! If the mist was better, I think I would have no issue ordering this and, since I can’t be sure it’s an issue with the full-size, I likely will order it just to see. Because that’s what I do.
