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.

My one qualm about it is that the nozzle does not ensure even coverage. Sometimes, the spray is a little heavier & is a lot on one part of my face. The subsequent spray might then be a little lighter. I have to use a couple sprays each time I apply, but it's never the same. For $8 a bottle, this isn't the worse thing. You could also use the tips of your fingers to diffuse it a bit.
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 !!
Small update I wanted to add to this- when using this after some time of having not done so, I was once again impressed by the way that it mists over the face! I went from using the Mario Bedescu rosewater face spray and this is so much less wet feeling, and sprays much more finely and evenly over the skin.
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.
