Is it National Mist week and nobody told me? There are a LOT of new mists around at the moment, and so far, not a dud one yet. What I will say straight away about the Shiseido Ibuki Quick Fix Mist is that it’s not an aerosol so doesn’t have a very fine misting ability – which is a big of a shock unless you have it far enough away from your face not to jump when you get a bit more of a jet than a mist! It’s a learning curve I was on too late! But, if you hold it back a bit, the mist reaches your face in a finer distribution.
The main purpose of Shiseido Ibuki Quick Fix Mist is to mattify oily skin during the day. I don’t have oily skin, so it’s hard to give a thorough review on this, although I can say that it doesn’t disturb make up, and does give a drier feel to my skin – almost a velvety finish – without feeling ‘dry’ exactly. I imagine it is a very handy thing for oily t-zones. The claims are that it reinforces skin’s moisture barrier, knocks down shine and holds your make up in place.
I like Shiseido and haven’t ever had a quality problem with the brand, so you if you’re looking for something that’s a little more than just a plain old mattifier, I’d recommend it as matte-with-benefits product. It’s £20 HERE and is 50ml.
