Setting Spray Showdown: What Worked And What Did Not For Oily Skin

Being a make-up lover in Malaysia is frankly, super stressful. No matter how much powder you put on your face to set your makeup, your face still ends up looking like an oil slick after three hours. With the unbearable heat, your makeup runs and before you know, there are patches of makeup missing from your face.

So what do we do? Cue setting sprays to the rescue. Now before you start judging and saying how setting sprays are basically just water in a can, I’m here to tell you, it ain’t.

Too Faced Hangover 3-in-1 Priming and Setting Spray

Too Faced Hangover 3-in-1 Priming and Setting Spray, RM155, Available at Sephora.

Nozzle Quality: 4/5

Packaging: 5/5

Price: RM155

Overall experience: While I absolutely loved the packaging of the Too Faced Hangover, I found that it did absolutely nothing to hold my makeup in place. I did feel super hydrated when I used it as a priming spray, it left me very, very oily as a setting spray.  I really like the coconut scent but I wouldn’t be reaching for it very soon. Personally, I think this would suit those with dry skin.
