We Tried out the Viral Makeup Fixing Mousse, and Here's What Happened

Did we manage to rescue our broken palettes?

By //Beauty 

If you’ve ever dropped your makeup, you know the sheer panic that hits you right when the pan hits the floor. If you’re lucky, it survives, but in most cases you end up with a powdery mess and a broken heart. Sometimes it seems as if your precious eyeshadow, contour and powder palettes beyond the point of saving, but when we heart about the viral “makeup fixing mousse” we knew we needed to test it out.

The product, called Moon Mousse, has taken the internet by storm during the past year. YouTube‘s biggest beauty guru’s have been testing it out, but we wanted to see it for ourselves. We brought in everything from Becca Cosmetics‘s cult favorite highlighter, to a LORAC contour palette and Fenty Beauty‘s Blotting Powder to try out the so-called “miracle product.” Keep reading below to see our thoughts on the Moon Mousse.

The instructions are plain and simple: Crush up the powder as finely as possible, press it back in, cover it entirely with Moon Mousse and let dry over night. At first glance it seemed really easy, but it proved difficult to crush up the powder finely enough using only the tools provided in the package. We quickly discovered after the first test that if you don’t crush it up enough, the results won’t be what you want them to. To avoid disappointment, its worth spending an extra 5-10 minutes making sure you’ve gotten rid of any lumps, and make sure you press hard and firm to pat down the product once you’re done.

After letting each product dry, we found that the mousse worked really well on the shiny finish products, like the Becca highlighter and Milk Makeup eyeshadow. When it came to matte powders, it didn’t really do much for the Fenty Blotting Powder and Kat Von D face powder, leaving a cracked finish. Of course, the products are still useable – it just doesn’t restore it back to new.

The Moon Mousse is definitely a great product if you’re looking for an easy fix when it comes to your makeup, but don’t go into it with high expectations of the products being as good as new. At $15 USD, its a lot cheaper than buying a whole new set of products, so if you’re looking to try it out you can get yours online at Moon Mousse.

Final Verdict: A good and easy-to-use product, but it’s no miracle.
