Hello beautiful people,
I must have lost my blogging mojo somehow 🙁 , don’t blame me , blame it on the hustle and bustle of Lagos :). I am not going to promise anything but I hope this year 2018 I am able to put more thoughts to paper, and then speaking of 2018, how has it been so far? Great I guess and if it is not going great yet just remember that persistence is the only thing you need to feed on to reinforce yourself.
So a lot has been happening in the beauty industry globally with Nigeria not left out of this great advances. There has been if you will a big bang of more indigenous brands springing up in the last year, it’s been an exciting period for the beauty industry.
We will be doing a quick review of the setting spray produced by these indigenous companies in Nigeria, I have tried out a few of the setting sprays in order to say it as it is . So, for those who don’t know what as setting spray is – they help to keep makeup looking fresh all day. It wasn’t until I did this review that I found out that we had quite a number of them. Enjoy the review below:
JUBA Cosmetics by Omolola Ajani Shittu
My thoughts: It takes away that powdery look and keeps the face hydrated.
VAAH cosmetics Rose Infused Hydrating Mist by Damola ₦1500
Claim: When applied before makeup this face hydrating mist from Vaah Cosmetics provides a good base for makeup to melt into. It is also perfect for setting your makeup getting rid of that cakey look we all hate!
My thoughts: It definitely promotes long wear and its alcohol free.It has a soft rose scent from the rose water which I particularly like.
Zaron Perfect Finish Fixing Spray ₦3500

This is especially useful for the African humid climate to ensure that your makeup stays perfect through heat, humidity and other weather conditions. The Perfect Finish Spray is a lightweight spray and is suitable for all skin types.
My thoughts : It kept my makeup looking fresh for a long period and it didn’t oxidate( thats is it didn’t turn my makeup darker)

Kuddy Cosmetics Makeup Fix ₦3000
Claim: This long lasting makeup fix provides a long lasting formula and grants a matte finish. Spray away and manage your makeup to last all day and night.
I actually feel some of the setting sprays really don’t work for our humid weather. I would love to have some of them develop a formulation that is mattifying to help combat Nigeria heat.
