Today we are checking out the NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray.
This setting spray is supposed to increase the longevity of your makeup. It’s a 60ml bottle. The sticker covers up some of the information, but basically, you spray it on your face about 30cm away from your face, and it will get you a dewy finish.
I was excited to try this out and see if it makes any difference on either side of my face. On my face today I just applied my makeup. Wearing the Guerlain L’Or primer, and then on top of that, I had my Revlon Colour Stay. I didn’t powder everywhere, I used my Laura Mercier translucent powder just under my eyes, on my chin, on the top of my cheeks and between my brows to kind of set any trouble spots. And then on my cheeks, of course, I used my Too Faced Love Flush Blush in Baby Love.
I went ahead and sprayed the NYX Matte Setting Spray to half of my face, to see after 12 hours if it looks any different from the other side of my face with some check-ins in between.
In terms of application, it’s really lovely and easy to use. The spray on the mister is very nice. It doesn’t get too chunky or too dewy…
I’m pretty sure you can’t tell any difference between the two sides of my face.
The side that has it did not get dried out. I like to tell myself that I do use it so that it takes down a little bit of the powderiness. Which I think is legit.
I’ve also recently tried the Wet n Wild one, and that one has a horrendous smell, and it feels thick and like there is hairspray on your face. This one has a little scent, but it’s nothing crazy, and it doesn’t really feel too crazy when it dries down.
It doesn’t feel sticky or heavy or anything so you can just set it and forget it.
Results at the end of the night:
All right guys so it’s the end of the night and here is how my skin is pretty decent.
The side without the spray is quite a bit greasier, I think. If I were to rate this product, I would probably still give it a good 4/5 .
I think it’s a little bit nicer than the Wet n Wild setting spray. The main reason that I like setting sprays is just after I powder everywhere just to take down some of that powderiness and make your skin look more realistic and nice if you went a little crazy with the powder. It feels really nice, maybe it gives you a nice placebo effect.
“This is one of my top three favorite products ever! My makeup stays put all day and evening until I remove it, and I’ve got oily skin, so for me to say this is seriously amazing. I love this stuff!” Tina LaRea
