E.L.F is one of my favourite makeup brands. Not only is it cheap but they have great quality products too. They have 3 different ranges. They have their "Own" range which is where the products are all from £1.50. They also have their "mineral" range which is all mineral makeup and eco friendly. And they have their "studio" range which is from £3.50 and has a sleek and professional look to it.
The E.L.F makeup mist and set is from the Studio Range and prices at £3.50. You get a 60ml bottle which is clear black with a spray nozzle which is protected by a plastic cap.
The formula has aloe green tea, cucumber and vitamins A,C and E. So essentially this would be brilliant if you have problematic skin as these ingredients will do wonders for blemishes!

MY FIRST THOUGHTS
My first thoughts of this product that it was a little bit gimmicky. When I heard that it was a spray that is supposed to set your makeup my first thought was "So you are using a water based spray to set your liquid makeup...hmm I wonder what is going to happen?!". Well, I suppose I was half right.
To apply you are supposed to hold the bottle 12-16 inches away from your face and squirt as needed. Then let it dry naturally or blot with tissues.
USING THE PRODUCT
As I started to use the product my favourite thing about it was the smell. It smelt so refreshing...The only way I can describe the smell is freshly cut grass with a hint of a summers breeze. Cheesy but hey! It's true! I sprayed it onto my face full of makeup and waited...and waited...oh...and waited. It took about a good 60 seconds to dry. This doesn't sound like a long time but after spending about 15 minutes doing your makeup, 60 seconds to wait for a makeup setter to set is annoying!
E.L.F claims that this product will set your makeup and prevent it from rubbing off your face all day while giving your face a fresh feel to it.
What it actually does is make your face feel refreshed but it can leave you looking a little bit like a streaky skinned, panda eyed freak! It made my eye makeup run so I don't know whether this was because I didn't wait for my mascara to dry or whether this genuinely made my mascara run...I thought it was supposed to set it! As for my foundation running , again, I don't know if it was because my makeup hadn't set yet but even still , it is supposed to set my makeup not make it run!
Overall this is brilliant as a face refreshing spray not as a makeup setter. I use this before I put my makeup on as it wakes me up and gives my skin a natural glow. I still like this product even though it doesn't do what it is supposed to. I recommend you try it as it would be perfect for summer to give you a fresh feel and fresh look to your skin.
