REVIEW: Skindinavia Makeup Finishing Spray

Hi everyone!

Today, we are going to be discussing about this famous makeup finishing spray that has everybody buzzing ever since I started beauty blogging!

Skindinävia was founded in 2005 with the sole purpose of creating products that would keep makeup looking fresher. Our revolutionary “Makeup Finishing Spray” was originally used on movie sets in Hollywood, so makeup artists could have fewer touchups through long days of filming. Unlike makeup settings sprays of the 1970’s and 80’s, which were “hairspray for the face” or “shellac”, our mists are virtually weightless and look completely natural.

Known as “The Original Makeup Saver®”, Skindinävia remains the only US based manufacturer of makeup finishes and still supplies Hollywood studios today.

Given facts and numerous testimonies from famous makeup artists, who WOULDN'T want to try this baby out? I admit I was kind of skeptical at first...UNTIL I tried it.

Skindinavia Sprays PH recently sent me a 59ml Makeup Finishing Spray and I was really excited to put it to a test! It took me weeks to come up with this since I didn't want to publish this blog review without filming an experiment video to support it! You will see the experiment video embedded at the end of this post. In that video you will see how my makeup transformed from the moment I sprayed on my first spray of the Makeup Finishing Spray up to the 5th-6th hour of that day WITHOUT RETOUCHING!

Now let's go through the product description and see the notes in red for my thoughts!

“The Original Makeup Finishing Spray greatly extends makeup wear, maintains color and prevents makeup from slipping, melting and creasing. Recommended for normal to combination skin types.”

Features and benefits

Fewer touchups throughout the day. - in the video that I filmed, I did not even retouch AT ALL! I pushed it to the limit yet it did not fail me! Approaching my 6th hour with the spray on my face, I noticed a teeny bit of shininess on my T-zone, although it was more of a DEWY effect, not an oily mess.

Stops makeup meltdown. - I had the spray on my face for over 8 hours that day (SuperSale Bazaar event) and I got home at 9PM. When I looked in the mirror, I was really amazed. My makeup was still 100% intact. You really have to see it to believe it. Amazing was the word. I felt like removing my makeup that night would be a waste since it all still looked oh soooo perfect.

Holds eye shadow, foundation, blush, and concealer perfectly. - this spray has some special formula in it that kind of blends everything together. My foundation looked seamless all throughout the day, my eyeshadow well-blended, my blush and contouring stayed put! Everything looked perfectly intact!

Skindinavia invented the makeup finish as a simple way for women to keep their makeup looking flawless all day. Each spray uses our patented Temperature Control Technology® which prevents makeup from melting, drying out, becoming shiny, or creasing.

Skindinavia Makeup Finishes hold everything in place while giving you a healthy, natural glow. Never too dry or too oily. No touch ups or blotting. Just you and the perfect look you love. All day.

I barely see any difference between the two photos (other than lighting) Everything stayed put (makeup-wise) *photos not edited*

This spray gets a total thumbs up from me. It has become something that I see myself using every day (especially for long hour events/occasions) I also use this on my clients to ensure longevity of their makeup all throughout the day!

I cannot wait to give the other types of Skindinavia Sprays a try! They actually have a lot of varieties that suit your needs (whether you have dry, oily, or aged skin) You can find out more about their products on their website http://www.skindinavia.com!

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I never give reviews to products that do not work at all for me--even if I received them for free.

Hope you enjoyed that review and give Skindinavia a try!

  5. The Lab is coming out with innovative ideas to make the application of the tan easier. One such product is the roll-on tan which has something that tanning los angeles resembles a rolling pin attached to the spray bottle. This helps the person apply the tanning solution without getting any on the hands and also in smooth and easy strokes.
