        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray:

        I have an obsession with setting sprays, if i can get a hold of it I will buy it. I bought this one when it first came out and I am just content with it. I have pretty oily skin and this stuff makes my makeup look airbrushed and fresh on my face, especially after i set it with ten pounds of powder. It however, does not keep me matte at all. I used it this morning and my face actually looked fairly greasy like 5 mins after spraying it on. I'm not too picky with my sprays, since I love the concept of them and am so used to blotting my face constantly throughout the day. I would just like to find one that keeps my t-zone matte. And yes, I've already tried the de-slick and havent had much success with that one. Still love this one though, and will probably re-purchase because it is so inexpensive compared to the others.

          This is a good product the only problem I had with it was when I used it, it seemed to make only the area around my nose , a tad bit greaser than usual.

                  Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray:

                  This is my first setting spray purchase and I'm quite satisfied with it, considering the price. I have conbination skin with oily t-zone and sometimes break out every now and then especially the chin area. I use this mostly over my liquid foundation and so far, it keeps my makeup in place, lasting for a good 5-6 hours. When I spray, it has a slight chemical spray (like hair spray), but the smell doesnt linger for long; it's tolerable considering I have a strong sense of smell. It's not drying and it's not dewy either. You have to let it dry all the way or it kind of slides and removes a little of your makeup. This is budget friendly and it holds up nicely. The only Con to this product I would say is that it's hard to apply concealer on top of the setting spray if you want to touch up a few hours later. I've tried retouching a few of my breakout areas and it kind of removed my makeup a little, creating missing patches. Then again, it could be the concealer I was using (Almay Clear Complexion Concealer- love this product). Overall, make sure you've applied enough concealer to the area and finish it with a powder. Then spray the setting spray. I would repurchase this because of the price.

                      Both products are formulated for all skin types and feature a lightweight, comfortable formula, so which to choose is a matter of personal preference, though many with oily skin prefer the Matte shine-free finish.

                      Yes, this spray can be applied to bare skin for a matte look. It contains a derivative of salicylic acid (Sodium Salicylate) to assist with oil and blemish control.
