REVIEW: Cover FX Illuminating Setting Spray

Packaging - 4 (very good)
Improved Wear- 5 (excellent)
Scent - 2 (not very good)
Longevity - 5 (excellent)
Hydration - 5 (excellent)
Application - 6 (incredible)

I am not a huge fan of setting sprays to be honest. I have used a few and sometimes they seem to help my makeup last, but not usually. I have very dry skin, so if I use them it's because they are hydrating more than anything else. Let's just dive right into this and break it down.

The packaging is nice. It has a chrome effect and it's clean and crisp packaging. But it is in a cheap plastic bottle with a cheap plastic lid. It's nothing noteworthy. With this setting spray I notice a huge difference in the wear of makeup throughout the day. It lasts twice as long. I was really surprised. I tried it with powdered foundations, my Fenty Beauty liquid foundation, Urban Decay Naked Skin and even a Almay one I am testing out. I noticed a huge difference without it compared to with it.
Which brings me to scent. It's not great. It smells chemically and is unpleasant. So you KNOW I have to get good results if I am using something that doesn't smell divine. A little goes a long way, I don't  have to use a ton, and this has 4 ounces of product in it, which is a lot. It's a good sized container. It was very hydrating without making me oily or greasy which is good. It is an illuminating spray, but it did a good job of giving me a glow without making me look dewy or oily.

The best part of this product is the application though. One of the reasons I am not usually a fan of setting spray is because it makes my makeup wet and I have to blend it in. Heaven forbid a large drop ends up in my eyeshadow, because then I may have to reapply a little. This comes out in a fine mist. It's not abrasive and it is so pleasant. Honestly when I am done with this, I am going to put other misting primers and sprays in this bottle. It's amazing.
