Product Description & Packaging:
Pro Base Fixing Mist by MUA comes in a plastic spray bottle. It has a water like consistency and is used to set makeup for longer wear time. Each bottle contains 60ml of product.

Overall Experience:
Sometimes I feel tired thinking about all those additional steps in makeup application. Lets go back a couple of years and think about base application. A concealer and a foundation were more than enough but now we have moisturiser, primer, foundation, concealer, contour & highlighter just to create a nice canvas to apply rest of the products before we set everything with a finishing powder but now comes one more final step (more like a final boss - gamers would know =P), formally known as Fixing Spray. I have been seeing it in use for a past couple of years but I thought the use was just for the brides so their makeups would stay in place for longer hours. But now that I am into makeup, I thought to try one as soon as MUA launched one. Despite of being lazy, thinking about all the makeup application steps, I haven't skipped using fixing spray on every formal and semi-formal occasion ever since I have got it.

It works like a charm to remove all the flaky-ness of full coverage foundations and all the cakey-ness from powder applications. It does not remove all the dry patches from the face but definitely reduces them a lot. It smells great and feels really refreshing during hot weather. The formula is so light and leave a dewy skin behind. If you are expecting a matte finish, you might need to dab a bit of powder on your face after you set your makeup with this spray, but for me, a dewy finish is more natural looking.

I haven't noticed any longevity in my makeup actually. It used to stay for almost same hours with a primer underneath. But I just love how it makes my base, skin-like, even if I am wearing a full coverage foundation.

How I Use It:
I do my makeup normally and then spray this mist on my face from about a two feet distance. I feel like I spray more than normal but that works fine for me. I keep my eyes closed for about 30 seconds. Then I take a fluffy brush, that I usually use for my finishing powder, and lightly dab on my face while the spray is still there a bit. I know this step is not necessary but I feel like it gives me a better finish. I do not touch my eyes at all and go for my lipstick at the end.

This spray has helped me a lot when I was in Pakistan a few days back. I literally did my makeup in a torch light so many times and I was always scared that my foundation might look cakey but using this fixing spray at the end ensured a skin-like finish plus it feels good in hot weather.

I have never tried Rose Water in place for a fixing spray but I have heard that it works fine to remove cakey-ness from the foundation as well. Do let me know if you have ever tried it so people who don't want to use a fixing spray, can get an inexpensive alternate.

Overall, I am loving this fixing spray for all the good things it has to offer but I haven't noticed my makeup to last longer than it usually does.
