Whenever I pass by the stores of NYX Professional Makeup, other than their lipsticks, I always see their setting spray being heavily promoted on their displays. Being a makeup beginner, I’ve always only used loose powder to set my makeup, but of course that doesn’t last very long under Malaysia’s hot, humid weather. In search to expand the variety in my makeup stash, I decided to try NYX’s Dewy Finish Setting Spray in hopes it could possibly make my makeup last longer.
NYX’s Dewy Finish Setting Spray claims to have a gorgeous dewy finish that is lightweight, comfortable and long lasting. It demands perfection, with a formula that makes sure your makeup stays put and well, perfect.
Dewy Finish / Long: Lasting Water / Aqua / Eau, Alcohol, Propylene Glycol, PVP, Phenoxyethanol, Disodium EDTA, Niacinamide.
Honestly, I was skeptical about putting something liquid on my face to set my makeup. I’ve always seen tv shows where the last step of the main actress’ makeup routine would be setting their look with some loose powder. Okay, maybe that sort of thing is more glamorous compared to squinting while you spray your face! 😂 But like, applying your liquid makeup already makes my skin wet, shouldn’t I dry it with powder? That has always been my reasoning until I tried this.
NYX’s Dewy Finish Setting Spray has minimal scent, I could smell it but it doesn’t bother me. The texture feels very much like water, there wasn’t a sticky after effect which is mad love! My main concern was a sticky after feeling but this didn’t have any! It was very light as well, as though I was using a face mist.
I even tried leaving it on for a bit and doing a quick tissue test to see if there were any makeup stains, and the results were probably 9/10 as there were very mild stains on the tissue. I tried this on a full day out and no cracks or weird sweat marks till the end of the day as well! Now this setting spray has become one of my makeup essentials that I must use whenever I put on makeup.
Only minor stains on the tissue
Overall, I really enjoyed NYX’s Dewy Finish Setting Spray that I’m already planning for my next purchase! I probably only didn’t like spraying my face because of that fear of aiming wrongly and wasting all that good stuff! 😂 Despite that, it’s still a setting spray I’d definitely recommend to buy that is coincidentally wallet friendly too!
