testing out mehron’s barrier spray.
1. cover half of testing area with scrap paper. apply barrier spray to uncovered half.
2. apply makeup. for this test i used mehron silver, snazaroo black, and mehron gold. mehron mixing liquid was used to apply all three.
3. use paper again for top spray. in total there were four tests, from left to right:
a) no barrier spray
b) barrier spray on top
c) barrier spray on top and bottom
d) barrier spray on bottom
4. dragged q-tips using equal pressure across black snazaroo. q tips from left to right follow a-d from above. i don’t feel that this particular experiment revealed much.
5. applied equal amount of vaseline over each area. briefly scrubbed each using equal pressure and number of scrubs/strokes in circular motions. wiped vaseline off hand between scrubbing each test area.
6. wiped vaseline from each test area individually. then said “screw it” and just wiped vaseline off entire arm.
i feel that the vaseline test revealed the most. if i ever really want the makeup to *stay put* all day i will apply barrier spray underneath. i’m going to try to avoid using this for m2x though—after yulemas i had a hard enough time removing grommet’s makeup even without barrier spray (it took me a ton of my favorite makeup remover, lots of facial scrubbing, and 2 intense showers to remove it all).
mehron is great so i’m not worried about the metallics at all, but it’s the black snazaroo that sweats away. i guess i’ll wait and see how well my neck does on friday, and if it sucks then i’ll use the spray on saturday.
