I do love a good fresh, dewy look to my makeup and was super excited when I say the NYX Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray, so much so that I ordered it straight away. Here are my thoughts on this nifty spray bottle of amazing things!

NYX Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray

I love dewy looking skin, but by the time I’ve powdered over my foundation (Even though it is a dewy foundation), I lose a lot of my glow. I want healthy, fresh, dewy looking skin without the sparkle. Is that too much to ask? Well, it was in honesty as I never mastered it with makeup alone till I found the NYX Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray.

Here is some information about the NYX Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray…

This product does EXACTLY what it say on the bottle for me. I have taken pictures for you to see before and afters, including with/without flash. I apply my makeup like always (Foundation, concealer, powder etc) and then when finished I give my face a few spritzes of the NYX Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray. BOOM! My face glows, its dewy, I have that Summer beautiful skin that I only ever achieve if I go to the beach (Which is rare) and its instant. But, please remember this spray isn’t just for giving you that dewy look – which it does so well, it also helps with setting your makeup.

Generally I find my makeup lasts  without a setting spray  (My old favourite setting spray was the Urban Decay Allnighter – review here) about 4-6 hours, with this bad boy I can add a good 2 hours onto that and it still looks fresh. I do find my sides of my face fade a little, but this is because I’m a ‘toucher’ and have a habit of resting my hands on my face, but generally this spray definitely extends my makeup.

On the face once dry I find my skin didn’t really feel any different. There wasn’t that hairspray, tight feeling you get with some makeup setting sprays. The scent was light and not overpowering at all, in fact I don’t really remember a scent, but do have full on hayfever right now so my sense of smell is right out the window!

So over all, I’ve been slightly blown away by the NYX Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray and absolutely love it! I’m so glad I bought one and can see this being a massive favourite from now on. If you want me to compare the look it gives you, I would liken it to Mac Fix+ with the extra hold of keeping your makeup put. I adore this product and I love that its reasonably priced too! A must have in my opinion if you like dewy skin!! For the record, I have normal/dry skin, if you have oily skin I’m not sure how would fair on you as the day wears on.

The NYX Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray is available from NYX Cosmetics, VERY and Amazon (I purchased mine from Amazon). It costs from £8 for 60ml of product, depending where you purchase.
