Prior to using this setting spray, I utilized face and eye primers to keep my makeup on. While it did a decent job, I noticed that typically by the eighth hour my makeup would begin to settle in the creases of my eyes due to oil and my forehead would begin to have a very heavy shine from oil. I wanted to extend the life of my makeup to match my thirteen hour day, where I do not have much time to reapply any makeup. In combination with my primers, this product is great. My makeup looks perfect by the time I come home after thirteen hours at work and at school. Everything on my eyes is in place and I have minimal shine on my forehead by the end of the day, so this product definitely helps keep my makeup cemented.
The only downside to this product is that its difficult to ensure proper coverage. You spray the product onto your face, but I find I need to use 4-5 sprays to ensure each side of my face and my forehead is covered. Sometimes the spray comes out heavier in some uses and weaker in others, so it can be difficult to pinpoint how much you've applied to your face.
Other than that, I definitely like this product and would use again.
I will say that it does a fantastic job at fixing your makeup in place. A little goes a long way, and the spray nozzle is great quality. It produces a fine mist instead of a firehose. Despite the bottle being kind of small, it lasts for quite a while. It’s a top-notch budget fixing spray that I’d recommend to just about anyone.
However, it’s not without flaws. As far as finish goes, it’s not matte. I still got a glossy sheen on top of my makeup that I’d have to go over with finishing powder if I was set on having a matte face. Second, as most setting sprays do, this has an alcohol base. Alcohol is a common skin irritant and can dry your face out, so that’s something to consider.
However, overall, this is a great product with only a couple gripes.
NYX Makeup Setting Spray - Matte
My makeup does not stay put for a significantly long period of time and my makeup still rubs off. This doesn't help keep my skin matte either. Most importantly, the spray on the bottle is a bit inconvenient, and I have to spray 5 times just to get my entire face/neck area while risking getting too much on one part.
This may work for plenty of users, but I will not be purchasing this again. It is better than using nothing, but spending a little more money for a better quality one gets the job done much better.
Thankfully Walmart is 24 hours and I was able to pick this one up quickly.
I have to say that I am very impressed with this setting spray from NYX.
Price is incredible. So much cheaper than my go to setting spray.
My first night wearing it was to my sister in laws wedding and I have to say that my face makeup stayed on through crying, laughing and dancing. We were in and out of the venue all day. Not to mention I was helping the wedding party with hair and makeup so my makeup had already been on since that morning. By 10pm (at least 10-11 hours after applying my makeup) my makeup still looked pretty good.
I have since used this product and I highly recommend it to anyone.
I would not buy it again because it did not work for me . But I still love NYX cosmetics has very good products and at affordable prices! just for reference i have a combination skin and i used this product around summer///Para mi siempre es muy importante encontrar un buen spray fijador porque me ayudara a que mi maquillaje me dure por bastante tiempo, con este spray no senti que fue de mucha yuda para mi piel como con otros productos, no lo compraria nuevamente por que no funciono para mi . Pero igual amo NYX tiene produtos muy buenos y a precios accesibles !!
On application, the first thing you'll notice is the awesome, fine mist. That's my favorite thing about this product, it sprays beautifully. I do find that right after application, it makes my makeup look more set together and melted into the skin, almost. My issue is this - I don't really find it keeps me matte through the day. I'm an oily girl, so it might just be my skin, but if a product is literally called matte...I expect great things.
If you've got dry/normal skin, this might be worth checking out! I won't be repurchasing, however.
