Max Factor Long Lasting Performance Setting Spray Review + Wear Test

Happy Sunday! Today I will be sharing with you my current favorite setting spray: Max Factor's Long Lasting Performance Setting Spray. Per the packaging, it promises "All-Day Setting Power". Will it live up to its claims? To know more about my thoughts on this product and my all-day wear test results; just keep on reading!

Product Packaging
The setting spray is packaged in a white, opaque plastic spray. The spray is not packaged in a box; rather, it is enclosed in a tight plastic seal.

The applicator or spray is easy to press and is enclosed in a see-through plastic cap.

There's an elegant sticker with the colors black and gold that contains all the information you need about the product.

Product Details
I'll start with Max Factor's claims on their Long Lasting Setting Spray. According to their website:

"Lock down your favourite makeup looks with Lasting Performance Setting Spray; the finishing spritz that keeps foundation, blusher and more in place for up to eight hours longer. Like a drink of water for your skin, cucumber extract delivers a burst of hydration, all while keeping shine at bay and reviving a dull, tired complexion.

Mist over your finished makeup look to refresh, mattify and moisturise. Lasting Performance Setting Spray is the finishing spray that does it all.

  • Locks makeup down for up to eight hours longer
  • Cucumber extract soothes and hydrates skin 
  • Revives makeup that's in need of refreshing"

Product Description (per the packaging):
  • Extends make-up wear up to 8H
  • Prevents colors from transferring and smudging
  • Controls shine
  • Dries quickly
  • Skin feels smooth and moisturized

Upon spraying, the product is really refreshing. This is because of the cucumber extract. Even the product smells like cucumber - which I love. It also gives a slightly matte, slightly dewy look. Just right in the middle.

The mist that it disperses from the spray is is fine. There are times that the mist gets to my eye, but it doesn't sting - which is also a plus.

I usually wear this every day for work. Considering that I have a 10-hour shift with gym and commute, this product performs great! See the all-day wear test below, considering:
  • I did cardio on the gym (I sweat hard this day)
  • I didn't even retouch my powder all-day
  • I used a primer for my base makeup
  • I tapped my face with a towel at the gym of course (blotted)
  • I'm inside an airconditioned office for a couple of hours
  • I commute via bus and UV shuttle 
  • I have combination to oily skin
  • I applied only a single layer of setting spray

As you can see on the wear test above: there's not much difference! Take note that I work from 5AM to 3PM with going to the gym and commute. Even if this is the case, there's just a little shine on my cheek and T-Zone! My face is not crazy oily unlike when I'm wearing other setting sprays. Actually, my makeup can still go on for hours.

Final Thoughts
There's no doubt as to why I use this setting spray every day. It really lives up to its claims of a long-lasting setting powder. There are times that I go to work for long hours then I bake at home in the afternoon. But still, my makeup is kind of intact. The only makeup I need to re-apply often is my lipstick. There are days that what I only bring on my bag is my lipstick. No need to retouch my base makeup.

Where to Buy

I researched where you can buy this online here in the Philippines. But sadly, I don't see this available in Lazada, Shopee, nor BeautyMNL. Don't worry though, once I see it available online or on any Max Factor shops, I'll update this post with the details.

If ever you get to find this product anywhere: I recommend you try it out. It is definitely worth trying.

Thank you for reading this post. For my next agenda, I will be sharing you another beauty mist and it is from a famous beauty vlogger here in the Philippines! Might blog about that this week so I'm so excited! I hear many good reviews about it, so stay tuned for that blog post.
