I dislike this product very much. It seems to be quite a hit with most people but I personally find it very drying and has an awful alcohol like smell. I didn't even go through the whole bottle as there are many other setting sprays that I have tried and would rather use. I do love NYX as a brand but the packaging and product for this setting spray is below what I am used to getting quality wise from them.
This setting spray is alright. I have pretty oily skin and it did make my makeup last a bit longer than if I were to go without it buutt I think there are better sprays out there.
This is a good little spray and is pretty cheap.
It doesn't spray as well as some other products I've used, it doesn't seem to "disperse" as wide and so I need to spray it a few times to get everywhere I want. It does tone down any oiliness or shine I do have and my makeup does hold for a while longer. Neither of these things lasts all day, I would give this a "lasting power" of just a few hours, I would recommend using a matifying powder with it.
I do agree with the "scent" thing I read on the other reviews, there is definitely a weird scent too it but I don't feel it to be too strong and it does fade after a few moments.
I've never tried this one but I would like SO MUCH! My skin is so oily and I think it could work so well for mattifying my skin! I've try some product of NYX and I LOVE THEM A LOT! But this setting spray I just can't find it! (SAD FACE)
Shine is fine ~ Just not when you're talking how your skin looks by the end of the day! NYX Cosmetics has come up with an amazingly priced, long lasting, shine controlling but water based setting spray ~ Matte Finish! I found it very lightweight with actual stay all day strength ~ even in warmer humid weather where my skin has a tendency to get really shiny by day's end. As a devotee of UD's De-Slick Setting Spray I can honestly say the NYX Matte Finish gives very comparable results yet comes in under $11 ~ which is simply Brilliant!
Things have changed. I read past reviews on this and they said it smells bad. It doesn't! My makeup stayed all evening through the hot weather and a night of dancing. It smells fresh. Great price for quality.
I have only ever used this once and it works okay; but smells AWFUL. I had said to my friend that I found it smelled like alcohol, and she agreed. I then walked past another friend without telling her I had used this and she said "wow you smell like vodka!". So that might be an issue if you don't like strong/weird scented products. So anyway.. I have really oily skin, and I have a hard time staying matte all day and this did a pretty decent job. However, I was also wearing a matte primer, foundation, UD setting spray and a translucent powder.. so hard to say how well this would have worked just on its own. But just on its smell alone I will not be purchasing.
