I do not know what I was thinking when I requested this for test and review. I think I though it might give a dewy, innocent look (don’t knock me for trying).. but in actual fact, when I gave my face a generous spritz of the 16 hour setting spray I gave myself my most dreaded thing – glitter face.
It’s a very light feeling spray that – because it’s bridal, I guess – gives you a kind of twinkle that obviously looks ridiculous when you’re walking your dogs, but I guess could look kind of pretty on a bride. It’s totally not for me, I will no doubt spend hour trying to remove every last shard of shimmer tonight, and the pieces are quite chunky – enough to catch the light in my kitchen and give me high beam every time I catch my reflection in the kettle.
Skindivinia is one of the best selling setting sprays, and I do like a setting spray – next time I’ll pick one with zero shimmer. You can find the sprays HERE.

Oh I don’t think I would cope with shimmer on my face!! Xx
Uh? Shimmer? On tha face? I was concidering buying this one as everybody and his mother raves about it…but, shimmer? Really? I say…NO, and thanks for the heads up!
But but bridal shouldnt have full on facial shimmer as will look odd in flash photography!
Odd, is all I can say.
Might look nice on the legs, maybe, but then again, you would have to be a bride in a (mini)skirt.
I use Skindinavia Bridal Make Up Finish and I was quite surprised you see glitter in it! It is completely clear. I really hate glittery bronzers, sparkly blushes and highlighters … I wrote an email to Skindinavia customer service and got the reply “at this time none of the sprays we produce currently contain glitter or shimmer particles. Not even the bridal.” .
So it seems the glitter you noticed has to come from anything else. Give it another try! I really like those sprays, as they really hold my make up in place. I can’t see a big difference in the bridal and original formula, but both are unperceivable.

I wonder if I had the previous version? It genuinely was so shimmery! This is a mystery.
