NYX Make Up Setting Spray - Dewy Finish Review

NYX Make Up Setting Spray - Dewy Finish Review

I love setting spray. If you get a good one it makes your makeup last forever and makes your skin feel so, so good.

NYX Make Up Setting Spray in Dewy Finish was the first setting spray I ever tried. It’s supposed to feel comfortable and lightweight, but most importantly it’s supposed to make your makeup last all day.

Since setting spray’s main job is to keep your makeup on all day I decided to test that last claim.


I swatched some notoriously slippy N.7 Shadow on my hand, covered half the swatch and sprayed away. The side with the bottle is the NYX side. I didn’t see much in the way of colour or texture changes on my hand.

I went to town wiping my hand. Now, I accept the fact that you’re most likely not going to be aggressively wiping your hand while wearing normal makeup; however… I mean… the results speak for themselves.

To be fair, there is a bit of colour on the NYX side and the glitter stayed in place a bit better.


I decided to go for really natural makeup- primer, concealer, powder, blush, highlighter and mascara.

Here’s the thing with the NYX Setting Spray: I get that it keeps makeup on better, but it just feels off.

Kind of like there’s big globs of something on the skin. While I love the finish, the sprayer is nice, and the price point is great, it’s just not comfortable to wear.
