Review: Makeup Revolution - Pro Fix oil control fixing spray :)


Hello! Some time ago I have received another product by Makeup Revolution to test and try but only now managed to write a review. I have received their Pro Fix oil control fixing spray. A bit earlier I have bought Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray and I was really curious how will this one perform. I thought this could be even better for me as I have oily skin and maybe help me keep my makeup on spot. I was testing this for a some time now, with different makeups, different products and also different weather (hot/cold days). 

What is it? - Makeup Revolution Oil control fixing spray is a lightweight setting spray that helps deflect surface shine for a natural matte finish. High-tech ingredients keep foundation and eye makeup in place with no smudging or fading for that just-applied natural look lasting up to 12 hours.

Directions - Shake well before use, apply makeup as usual. Hold the bottle 8 to 10 inches away from your face and spray a light mist making sure eyes are closed. Product will dry and set naturally.



The packaging of the products is a simple plastic bottle with spray pump. It contains 100 ml od product and costs about 6,95 euros. It's really a simple plastic bottle with black and gold writing, nothing much special about it. 

The pump dispenses a fine clear mist which I really liked as I don't want to get my face all wet and ruin makeup by any chance. It despenses evenly. You do need to hold it away from your face at leats 20 cm.

The scent of the product doesn't bother me much as I never  apply too much product but it may bother others as it really sort of smells like hospitals hand sanitizer. When the product sets on you face and dries the scent is no longer present at all. So you don't need to wait long, as it really dries fast. I find that it likes to leave my face a bit sticky, even though I am really carefull not to apply too much. 

Mostly I used it after all my makeup was done and than spreyed it on my face, (including after applying my setting powder). I must say it did dry fast but some spots on my face tended to stay shiny. I never tried to reapply setting powder on top of the spray as I felt there were just too many layers and everything started to move out of place.

However this spray can be also used to intenisfy your eyeshadow look. You can use the product so that you first spray the clean brush a bit, than take the eyeshadow you like and apply it on your lids. It's actually like a wet look technique, just with using this spray. 

As for the oil control part I must say it wasn't as good as I hoped it would be. It did help a bit, but I was still oily and shiny after three hours of wear and I did hope this would help me keep my face more fresh. It would probably work better on those who already don't need much anti-shine, anti-oilyness products, but well I need them and Urban Decay All nighter worked better for me in terms of keeping my face shine free for a longer period of time. However this product did help me keep my makeup longer on my face, the lasting power of my foundation elongated but it didn't help me with the shine...

All in all it's a good product but not that amazing... Slovenian readers can buy it at Ličila.si or MakeupRevolutionSlovenija :) The price is reasonable and affordable for 100 ml bottle, so if you think you could find more uses for this spray and also that it would help you keep your face shine-free, you should give it a go!




I hope this review was helpful to you and thanks for reading! Also thanks to Makeup Revolution Slovenija for the product!

Love, UniqaPoly

  1. Imam od ELF setting spray pa ne opazim neke grozne razlike, zato že iščem novega. Očitno ta ne bo za mene. Alkohol ima že na drugem mestu :/ Pa tudi škoda, da ne pomaga pri mastnem obrazu.

    1. Jaz sem tudi mela ELF pred leti in mi je bil grozen, Avon si ne upam poskusit ker mi deluje podobno... tale na žalost ni točno to kar bi si želela oziroma potrebujem... priporočam potem raje Urban Decay all nighter...
