I searched the forums and I got a lot of mixed information.

Has anyone used Model in a Bottle setting spray and if so what did you think of it? Pros and cons please.

Is there something else you would recommend?

Thanks!

One of my colleagues uses Ben Nye's Final Seal for aquatic shoots... yes it does an excellent job, that said she mentioned that you have to remove this with Ben Nye's Hydra Cleanse... it is tenacious and won't come off easily...

btw have you considered airbrushing with TEMPTU S/B?  it's my go to for wear-ability... won't rub off and lasts the duration of any event... my clients have mentioned that it was still present after showering...  yep, it is tenacious also, although regular eye make-up remover will lift it off... no special remover needed...

hope this helps...

I use Model in a Bottle and love it. MAC also makes a good one too.

I have and use Model in a Bottle, it's alright- but when it runs out, I'll buy a different one. It does what it says it does, but oh man, the smell... And heaven forbid any gets in your, or the model's, eyes! The packaging is also very un-kit friendly, and I've had it leak on me a few times.

(balls, wrong account. Oh well.)

Thank you (from my wrong account)

I think I want to try the Ben Nye Final Seal unless my friend at Sephora has something for me to test.

Scindinavia is the one I see recommended a lot. I Like Face Atelier's and Lise Watier's setting sprays.

Thank you! I like the sound of the Aqua Seal. I don't do airbrush and I am not sure if I am going to learn how anytime soon but I do use a beauty blender and I have heard some people actually apply the temptu with a sponge or blender.

It is really humid in Florida in the summer and I am more interested in having the makeup hold up for editorials and often we are on location with no access to power.

I prefer Final Seal- but above comments are right, the stuff is intense and hard to remove. but when it's on it's on. I use it on myself and clients a lot for events/live performance/really really hot outdoor shoots.

For lighter use, I have used llama in a Bottle...it's okay, i've been told my llamas that it an sting really really bad if they have sensitive skin, and yes it has an odd smell.
I know Urban Decay used to make one called all-nighter that I loved for everyday use/basic setting power...but i've been told it's been discontinued which is a shame.



(just realized i'm on my llama account...oops....)

My agent just gave me a few UD All Nighters they sent us so it is still being made.  I like it but Final Seal has always been my goto setting spray.
