      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray:

      I love this spray and no longer finish my make-up without a setting spray. NYX matte spray does a great job setting my make-up. I have very oily skin. Without this setting spray my make-up is usually smudged and faded by lunch time, but with the spray my face still looks good at 6 pm when it is time to call it a day. All I need is to blot once or twice during the day and touch up my lipstick. The down sides are that it does leave a slight sheen to my face, so it is not really a "matte" finish and the spray isn't really even and so I can get a little too wet. I use the pray in kind of a cross pattern and hold my face still while the spray dries.

          I've used this product for 2 years now and I'm not sure if it actually works. It definitely doesn't keep me matte all day, that's for sure. I start looking greasy 3-4 hours after applying makeup. The good thing about this product is that it's very moisturizing, like spraying lotion on your face. So overall, not bad, but not for a setting spray. I think I'll try Urban Decay's All Nighter.

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray:

          I got this on a while as NYX had a sale.

          The tests were no foundation primer; using my face oil as moisturizer; and different foundation types....

          First time I tried it I was shocked that my normally oily skin didn't grease up by 11am like normal, figured it was a once off.

          Tried it in 90 degree weather and, while it didn't keep me TOTALLY shine free, it did a decent job.

          Next test was on a liquid serum makeup that basically melts off my face literally by mid day ..... this was the kicker. The true test.... And this setting spray really did keep me mostly matte through the day, even with foundation that ALWAYS melts off - with no blotting papers.

          I will say that with those good things, I could not give it a full 5 star rating as it did cake up the makeup slightly around my nose and chin area when I used my mineral powder foundation; I presume from the mist not being as fine as it should be for a liquid being sprayed on to your face.

          BUT, for the cost it's a fairly solid spray I'd say.

            Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray:

            This setting spray is God send. It's afford for those of us on a budget and it is very effective. I love it because a little goes a long way. Also, it enhances the color of your make-up, making it easier to use less to achieve your desired results.

            Being a sweater, I was always afraid that my makeup would bubble and run. Using this allows me to gently dab the sweat away and still good perfect.

              I bought this to help set my mineral foundation since I've found they tend to rub off through the day, and I wanted my makeup to last longer. This is the first day I've used it, but I noted the last time I looked in the mirror that my face doesn't look nearly as oily as it usually does, and my makeup still looks good. Very pleased so far, and love the price!

                  Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray:

                  I tried this product when I was low on cash and needed a mattifying setting spray. I usually use the Urban Decay De Slick which has been a miracle for my ridiculously oily skin... but this product was the worst cosmetic purchase I've ever made. Firstly the liquid smelled like whiskey, which went away quickly after it dried but it made me think how much alcohol they made have had in this product. It broke me out terribly and the nozzle where the product sprays out wasn't very good either. It wasn't a fine mist and after I got done spraying it I could see big wet dots all over my face, it didn't dry fast at all, and it never actually set my makeup. I would have been better off with actually spraying alcohol on my face to control my oil (which I definitely don't advice). Spend a few extra bucks and get the travel ($14 for 1 oz.) or full size ($30 for 3 oz.) of the Urban Decay De-Slick Setting spray... now that's a product that actually says what it's going to do! This just felt like I paid to have smelly water sprayed on my face.

                      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.
