Most Helpful Positive Review Dewy Finish, Worth It
This is the first (DEWY) setting spray I've ever tried so I wasn't sure what to expect. I wear makeup because 1) I love it and 2) I have bad acne scarring and don't feel confident without covering it up. With that said I like my makeup to look natural--like I'm wearing some but not overly made up or cakey or plastic. With the exception of my oily nose my skin looks/feels neither oily or dry so I like to look smooth, soft with just the right sheen after makeup. This setting spray is what I have been missing in my makeup routine! I keep mine in the fridge because the coolness is so refreshing and keeps my pores nice and tight. It leaves your skin with a nice subtle glow and I have noticed a true difference in the staying power of my makeup. I don't wear anything on my nose because I constantly blow it all day, and sometimes I would see foundation wearing off in that area. With this spray it has definitely lessened! Hardly any wearing off at all. I don't like to be matte so I haven't tried that one but if it works as well as the dewy finish its a good buy.
Most Helpful Critical Review Its ok
Not the best setting spray I have used, but not the worst. For the price you cant beat it. Will last thru your work day, but dont go out clubbing before re-applying.

This is a holy grail setting spray. It LOCKS in makeup and (I could be delusional) I feel like it even makes me sweat less? It's amazing
Nicole from Ca
Keeps my makeup on. Now that we have to wear masks after spraying my makeup with this stuff it only comes off a little bit.
Rebecca from Texas
This setting spray is good for the price , I was expecting anything like All nighter setting spray which is what I normally use . It is mattifying but not as much as I would like . I have extremely oily and sensitive skin , I love that it didn't irritate my skin which is always a concern of mine. It does keep my makeup on and looking great for about 4 to 5 hours before I have to touch up my T zone . If your not as oily as me this spray will definitely be great for you! I'll repurchase this again most definitely!
Elizabeth from Texas
Worked really well! I bought this for homecoming and I stayed matte all night! It didn't hold my makeup as well as I would have liked it to but that's the only downside!
Don't overspend on a setting spray!
Ashleyrabbit from Las Vegas
This works amazing for everyday use. I layer it. Once over my eye make up. Then again once I do my concealer and/ or foundation. And then again after applying powder, cheeks and brows. Use your expensive setting sprays for special occasions! Also, I don't know why people say it smells like alcohol, it does contain it, but it's scentless to me..
This is my favorite. At its price, I can afford to make sure I never run out. I have at least two bottles at all times.
Worth its price

2-3 spritzes will keep my makeup set for *majority* of the day so I wouldn't recommend for heavy makeup. I'm still trying to find one that will leave my skin matte all day!!
I would by this again
Saph from Jackson, Michigan
I loved this and would definitely buy this again
Effective setting spray
Aly from Portland
This setting spray over all does its job. Makeup starts on a decent amount of time. I just wish it didn't have alcohol as one of the main ingredients, you can smell and feel it tighten your skin up which I'm not a fan of at all. The spray nozzle also isn't great and can come out patchy
No makeup on the mask!
Staceface from Chicago,IL
Used this for a wedding to make sure my makeup stayed on my face and not on my mask. Used a few layers but it worked great!
Gigi from Louisiana
It literally smelled like alcohol😐
merb from South dakota
At this price point, this is the best. I love that it keeps you matte for a while. I'm extremely oily so it doesn't last as long as I would like but it's the 2nd best I've tried. (The absolute best is too faced peach mattifying spray)
I was hopeful...
Soph from New Mexico
I have oily eyelids and I've been using hairspray on a qtip to set my eyeliner for a few months now, and recently found out it's probably not good for your skin (but it works fantastically!) Tried this as a possible alternative - unfortunately my eyeliner rubbed off onto my eyelid within the first couple hours. Doesn't work for me :(
YES YES YES
Bb from Charlotte
I've been using this for years now and finally getting around to writing a review. I have oily skin and this product is amazing. It always dries perfectly and keeps me matte without drying out my face. Not to mention, the price and size is amazing!!
Heather Lynne from Mantua, NJ
My makeup doesn't MOVE when I use this. I love it! Its matte but not unnaturally blurring. My face looks natural but not shiny. Love it!
em from San Mateo
I recieved this today and it was open, it didn't even have a cap.
Cat lady from Valdosta, Ga
Mistake to buy this. I don't see how it sets my makeup when I use it. It wet my dace, but didn't help set my makeup or make it appear matte
Bought over & over again
Naomipa9 from Melbourne, FL
I have bought this product so many times! It truly does have a matte finish. Even for my very oily skin.
Crissy from USA
I have repurchased many times! Keeps my makeup stay and refreshes as well. The spray button can be difficult to press sometimes.
Steph M from Philadelphia, Pa
Matte Setting spray is all I use by NYX because I have very oily skin and it works . It does not keep all day but it does what it's supposed to do.
good but the nozzle makes application hard
alex from azusa ca
basically the title. good setting spray that evens out my foundation+minimizes pores and keeps everything in place well, it just doesn't have a continuous mist. it lets out one hard spurt when you press, rather than a continuous flow of spray that you can move to cover your whole face in one go (hence the star off). other than that, good setting spray!
EmmyMc from Detroit
LOVE THIS! Makes my makeup last super long and in heat!
Ulta shopper from Kansas City, MO.
I spray on my face after makeup application to set and keep makeup in place! It works very well!
highly recommend with a great price!!
oooprincess from Indy
I love this. I'm on my 3rd buy. The price is great and it works. I layer it and it seals in like a dream, even if I use one layer it still lasts.
Newbie from Spfld
I was hoping for it to be good! From all the reviews I was expecting it to be semi amazing...not for me. Broke out my face and made it sting slightly.
Don't bother with Fix+ or All Nighter!
Sara from Texas
Seriously y'all, I have used both of the above holy grail products and the Nyx Matte setting spray either works just as well or even outperforms in the case of Fix+. It's just so good, I've refilled it three times now and it's small enough to put in my travel bag. I use it to prime my face too sometimes. Don't bother with the more expensive brand setting sprays, try this guy out and you won't be disappointed!
