More Newbies From Glitter Mama Shop

On Monday, I decided to pick up a few more bits from Glitter Mama Shop for baby. On Wednesday, my prettily packaged lovelies arrived.

Baby Car Seat Blanket (€14.99) I love the idea of these, no more fighting with blankets to make sure babe is nice and cosy in the car.

I picked up two packs of Bandana Bibs (€5.50 each) I am currently obsessed with bandana bibs so these will make a nice addition.

MUA Pro Base Fixing Mist

I have to admit I've never really been taken in by makeup setting sprays. I always thought they were a needless extra step. However, decided to pick up the MUA Pro Base Fixing Mist while on my travels. It was £5 (€6.30ish)  and I thought it might help my Collection Compact stay in place. At this point Collection hadn't received a proper outing and I was unsure of it's staying power.

The packaging is simple and contains 60ml of product. Makeup Academy say this lovely will fix your makeup in place all day and protect against heat, humidity, cold and windy conditions. All bases covered there. I find my makeup can slide of my face in heat so I was intrigued to see how it survived  me running around after my three year old. 

The mist couldn't be easier to apply. After popping on your face base, shake the bottle and hold at arms length and spray in a "horizontal swishing fashion" The is hardly any scent to the mist. No chemical smell in sight which is a winner for me. I can't stand over chemically smelling products. 

I have tried it over my Collection compact and Catrice matte foundation and have found it definitely improves the staying power. I have also noticed it evens out the coverage of the foundation. I'm completely sold on this lovely and will repurchase. For the price and the size of the product, you can't really go far wrong. 

I really like what I have tried from the MUA range,the only thing I wish is that us was more available here as there are a handful of Superdrug stores, more times than not when you do find one the MUA stand is practically bare. That leaves you with the online shop where you can pick up some great bargains. Shipping isn't overly expensive at £4.95 (€5.50ish) but I'd rather be able to have a proper look at a stand. 

Would you try this setting spray or are there others you rate?
