Caudalie Beauty Elixir and MAC Fix+

Some people (naming no names) use hairspray to fix their make-up to their face. I am not one of these although I have tried it. It is because of this that I went to find something that is not going to make my face rigid for the rest of my life but will help keep my make-up on on a day-to-day basis. I have been recommended that MAC do a good make-up fixative so I really wanted to try it out.

However, I got waylaid at SpaceNK and instead bought Caudalie's Beauty Elixir. The smell of this is a bit striking, I don't mind it but some may. It's made not only to keep your make-up on but also to refresh your face if you give it a little spritz during the day. I really like it and I have to say I really have noticed my make-up staying on more. That's the good thing about wearing a lot of eyeliner, foundation and bronzer (I sound dreadful... I don't trowel it on as much as it sounds) you can tell when it comes off. If you wear flicks on the sides of your eyes (hopefully better done than Ms Winehouses) then these can wear off during the day... but not completely. You get left with little patches. And now my remain firmly in place. There's even less foundation residue on my office phone. It's also great if you have a light base on during the day and want to reapply in the evening - spritz this on and you are ready to add more foundation.

But me being me I don't want to stop there. I now want to purchase more so that I can compare. Next up will be the Mac Fix+ which I was initially recommended. If anyone has heard of any others let me know and I'll get testing.
