Instant Tan Makeup – The Water Test

Never let it be said that I don’t go the extra mile for my readers. Candycane asked what happens to the Instant Tan Makeup I reviewed the other day when (as so often happens in this country) you are caught in a rainstorm. England’s lands are green and pleasant for a reason you know – it’s all that rain! She wanted to know does it streak when rained on. So, in the name of research, I could be found yesterday evening with one foot beside the wash basin, splashing my leg with water to see what happened. The answer is no, it doesn’t streak or run. What is does do is wash off (which, in fairness, is exactly what it said it would do on the tube: washes off with soap and water) and I was left with white patches on my leg.

As I would no normally go bare legged on a day when rain is forecast this is not a problem for me. However, if you were travelling to an event in torrential rain I would suggest covering up with leggings until you are safely inside and then removing them to avoid wash off.

It is marketed as ‘makeup’ after all and the fact that it washes off makes it really easy to remove and means you can easily correct any mistakes – just wash them off!
