I can’t even remember what pushed me to buy this Lock-It Makeup Setting Mist. Kat Von D has never been a brand with products that called to me and I didn’t have a Sephora near me for a long time so I wouldn’t have bothered to buy this online. I’m thinking that it was probably the first time I went into the new Sephora in my local shopping centre and one of the sales assistants must have recommended it to me. Either way, I’m glad they did because this is a great setting spray in my opinion.
I’ll go through the pros and cons below but just know that I’m already onto my second bottle and unless I find an even better setting spray soon, I’ll be purchasing a third one too.
For what the setting spray claims to do, it does. A super fine spray mist that applies evenly, locks my makeup in place for more than 8 hours and blends my makeup together to create a flawless finish. It will slightly control my oily skin but not entirely. It was never advertised to control oil so it’s an added bonus that I have noticed it helping keep my greasy face at bay.
As I said above, I have repurchased this since finishing the first bottle, I am still looking for a holy grail setting spray which would basically be this spray but with dedicated oil control as well. Until I find that holy grail spray, I am more than happy to continue using the Kat Von D Lock-It Setting Mist.
