    Makeup Setting Sprays – Are They Really More than Just Water

    Sometimes you feel a lil’ extra. Where after you finish your typical 20 minute makeup routine you’d use a makeup setting spray as a finishing touch. To set makeup, to make your foundation look “natural”, mimic an hour of sweat. Do make-up settings really work? Are they really more than just water? Today on the blog I’ll share with you my favorite makeup setting sprays that actually do the job and more. But first!   What is a Makeup Setting Spray? Makeup ‘setting‘ spray is formulated to be budge-proof and keep your makeup right where you left it, while ‘finishing’ sprays are typically used to moisten the skin. Therefore finishing sprays are more commonly used to ‘reset’ makeup during the day…

    REVIEW: Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence SPF50+ PA++++

    Before I write my review, I made sure I put in, and applied Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence generously on my face, neck, arms, and the rest of the visible parts of my body.

    While I’m sipping my 2nd mug of iced latte here at J. Co, I’m contemplating. Procrastinating rather, if I should start writing another makeup review on my blog. It’s been a few days and having a regular day job is quite exhausting despite working remotely. Ah, the advantages of working semi-freelance.

It was soon followed by eye-catching promotions and banners using bright colors. Suits our pop princess just right. Everyone was excited for her makeup line! Including myself! I was lucky enough to have been sent a PR kit with the entire line. The…
