The Shu Depsea Water was $150HKD for 5oz and the P&J Moisturizing Mist was also $150HKD but for 1.7oz.
I think the whole point of makeup mists are to add extra moisture and prep your skin for base makeup. I could be wrong, but I think makeup mists are a great starter to makeup application because I do notice that my foundation applies more smoothly.
Both the Shu and P&J mists do the job quite well. I lightly mist my forehead, cheeks and chin and pat the liquid in until its fully absorbed, then begin my usual base makeup application.
Prior to using makeup mists and getting the P&J skincare line (which I'll talk about next time), I've always stayed away from using foundation because my cheeks would get flaky. I feel that the makeup mists help reduce the flakiness even with a good moisturizer. My cheeks tend to get dry easily, especially in the dry months. I also never took good care of my skin before reading all the blogs XD
Both mists have a plesant smell to it. I got the Shu mist in bergamot because it reminds me of a cup of tea. The smells in both of the mists don't linger too long either, so I think it's great for those who are sensitive to smells.
Another good thing about makeup mists is you can spray it on top of makeup, well that's what the SAs told me. In case you want your makeup to look fresh and get a nice refreshing feeling you can simply spray this on.
So which one would I repurchase? It'll have to be the Shu mist. It's cheaper than the P&J one because its got an extra 3.3oz in it for the same price. I also think the Shu mist sprays more evenly than the P&J mist. I find that even though the P&J mist will come out as a fine mist, sometimes there's extra droplets that don't come out properly. I might not be pressing down on the nozzle hard enough...?
For those of you would don't mind splurging on the P&J, I think it's an awesome addition to the base makeup routine. Although the P&J mist is more expensive, I think it's very convenient to take with you when travelling or just putting into your purse. You don't risk any accidents because this is in a hair spray type bottle.
All in all, I recommend both mists, but that really depends on how much you're willing to spend =D
