Makeup Revolution London Pro Fix – Amazing Makeup Fixing Spray Review
Hola my Beauty Queens!! What? We don’t need a pageant to be termed that. Don’t you think? 😉
The winters are on the peak, and I can’t believe that 2014 is almost ending. I am already a year old on IMBB, can you believe that? Seems like it was only yesterday that I finally came out of the cocoon to start writing here. Writing for IMBB not only made me discover my knack and love for writing, but also made me discover the artistic side of makeup. And not to forget, meeting the team and all you wonderful people.
So, coming to today’s review, it is another product out of the mega haul that I had shared with you guys, and I am super glad that I picked it up, in spite of being skeptical. It is the Makeup Revolution London Pro Fix – Amazing Makeup Fixing Spray. Let’s just shorten it to the first part of the name, for review purposes. So, let us move ahead to find out how this one fared on me.
The Makeup Revolution London Pro Fix, comes in a white colored spray bottle, with a plastic cap to cover it. The cap looks a bit flimsy at first sight, as it can easily be revolved, but when you try to pull it off, you will note that it is pretty sturdy in the way it fixes itself over the bottle. However, I do not think that the cap would be scratchproof. It is travel-friendly, but I personally prefer to wrap such liquid or spray products in a separate packet before putting them inside, on a precautionary basis, no matter how friendly the packaging.
It comes at a price of INR 1000/- for a size of 100 ml, which is pretty affordable; as most of the sprays that I know are in the same price range, irrespective of the quality offered. I, however, got this at a price of 475, including shipping charges, and this brand is mostly on discount, in India. So, grab the goodies till they are available at half the price. 😛
Description and Directions:
My only concern is the presence of alcohol. This has been the case, ever since one of the nivea toners, which was alcohol based, had reacted pretty badly on my oily-combo skin. However, there are active ingredients like aloe vera, castor oil, sunflower oil etc… too.
My Experience with Makeup Revolution London Pro Fix – Amazing Makeup Fixing Spray:
Let me first tell you about something. Once I had used a Nivea toner, without much research, and one of the ingredients reacted pretty badly on my face; with all the dry and red rashes popping up overnight. I made a wild guess that it must be the presence of alcohol in the ingredients, as google searches showed that it was not good for my oily combo skin. Ever since that day, before purchasing anything for my face, I make it a point to study and search the ingredients. Now you understand my hesitation in purchasing this product? Because no matter how good, it still has alcohol as one of the ingredients. On a happy note, this did not react. I did a patch test on my hand first, and it just gave a fizzy, cooling sensation. Same was the case when sprayed on my face. So, well you can say that I was pretty happy when my notion was proved wrong.
The smell is horrendous. Like a full-fledged “daaru” has been splayed and sprayed on your face. It is bad and pathetic. I cannot say anything good about the smell, which is a big turn off. Good thing is that it stays around for just 10 seconds. Thank goodness.
Ah! The performance. I am glad to inform you guys that this really works. I will tell you why. I have used many blushes, high end, mid range, and also the new cheek stains. None, absolutely none of these stayed on my oily cheeks for more than 2 hours. However, I went for a party, after setting my makeup with this spray, and my Lotus Ecostay blush, was still flushing beautifully on my face, 5 hours later. It does not control oil much, but to a reasonable extent. I can assure you that this is much better than my Colorbar Spray, which I find better as a spray toner, rather than a makeup fixing one. I can assure you that it would work in summers too, but will control oil to some extent, if not all.

Cons of Makeup Revolution London Pro Fix – Amazing Makeup Fixing Spray:

4.5/5. This is the best makeup fixing spray that I have used till date.
Would I recommend/repurchase Makeup Revolution London Pro Fix?
Yes! I will repurchase this, and I will recommend, if you can ignore the 10 second “daaru” smell. 😛
