Most Helpful Positive Review Beautifully glowy!
I'm a sucker for a good setting spray. I feel that they truly make a difference for my makeup. I received this one complimentary for reviewing purposes. I'm actually really enjoying it!
The spray nozzle is really nice. It mists the product very finely and evenly. I don't get droplets or blobs of setting spray on my face.
I immediately notice that my makeup is more radiant when I use this. It gives me a beautiful natural glow. It just melts everything together so well. Honestly, I think it's the combo of this plus my other makeup products (this is the only one I used that's new to me) but my husband even noticed a difference- without prompting- and mentioned how good I look. Huge win!
What matters to me most though is the staying power. I'm surprised by how well my makeup lasts throughout the day with this. Usually glowy setting sprays have some staying power. This did the trick all day.
Now, some things that could be an issue for some people. I personally do not have any problems with these- if you have a sensitivity to alcohol, denatured alcohol is the second ingredient. I don't mind that in a setting spray at least, since it helps the product dry down and last. But if you're looking for alcohol (a drying alcohol) free, this isn't for you.
If you have oily skin, I also wouldn't recommend it. It does give a beautiful glow but I can imagine those with oily skin having issues with this. I recommend it more for normal/dry skin, which is what I have.
I can also imagine some people not liking the scent. I personally kind of like it, and it does dissipate when it's applied. It smells kind of like the Urban Decay All Nighter spray but a little stronger and... I don't really know how else to describe it other than saying it smells like something I would use in the shower. Also, in a way, I get cactus vibes from the scent. Sorry, I know that probably doesn't help much!
Overall, it's a great setting spray. I love that it's an affordable option too. I would definitely recommend this and consider repurchasing!
Most Helpful Critical Review Shake VERY VERY WELL
I am personally not a fan. I shook and shook and shook this setting spray and I am not impressed. I love NYX but this is NOT It for me. I have natural freckles. I am light skinned. This setting spray basically gave my freckled skin. I shook it up a bunch and it was BAD. Dark specks all over. I then dabbed those dots away and shook the spray HARD. After I sprayed, I still saw some dark spots. Overall I saw that it made my face darker than it typically would with my other setting sprays.y second picture shows it after shaking it A LOT. The brown spots are due to the spray...
Maybe if you want to look like you have sun spots or freckles this is for you. But I don't think that is the intention.
I WISH that I liked this spray. I do. I could see it working better for others but if I have to work out basically to use my make up, that's a little much. I don't think this is worth it, personally. A lot better setting/finishing sprays out there 😣
The only reason I gave 3 stars is because it seems like it is a decent setting spray otherwise. My skin feels fine and smooth. It is radiant so know that is shimmery.
I used it for a third time today and shook is like I was working out and it didn't show visible spots but I shook it HARD. So if you don't mind that, then hey give it a shot!

I spray a light mist on my face after completing my makeup. I've used many setting sprays and this one is hands down the best!
Wanna Be Covered in Chunky Dark Brown Glitter?
Lizz from Ca
Listen. I don't know if this actually sets your makeup or not. What it does do is COVER you in dark brown and gold VERY visible glitter. It looks absurd. After shaking and shaking I couldn't get it to do anything but leave a visible orange/gold patina on my very pale skin. If I wanted glitter I would have bought glitter. Not a setting spray. Just awful.
I would be buy again
TFaulkner from AL
Use to set my makeup in the morning before and lasts pretty much all day
LOVE THIS PRODUCT

I LOVE this setting spray. It works wonders and holds the makeup on!
Bobfilas sis from Ohio
It really sets my makeup beautifully. I love the dewy and matte finish setting sprays from nyx as well. I actually prefer them to Mac fix
kalexh99 from united states
this is a dewy setting spray but it leaves small pieces of glitter all over my face which i dont mind, but what i do mind is that when i spray it, it leaves brown splatters all over my face. idk if i got a faulty one, but ive shaken it multiple times which does help but i still get splatters. when i blend the splatters in, it doesn't mess up my makeup, just kinda weird.
Katie from Georgia
Love this product! Gives you a nice even glow once applied
Not for very fair people
Sarahrs from undisclosed
It's not really this products fault, but I had no idea it was going to come out such an orangey tint. I'm extremely fair and this was just not a look for me.
Not hydrating as expected, has added glitter instead
Rose from MN
Wanted to try this since it seemed like it would be more hydrating than the dewy setting spray, as it is part of the Glass Skin line for NYX. I was shocked to find that this has gold/bronze glitter in the formula. This is not advertised on the bottle or advertising. I love putting on a lot of setting spray to rehydrate my face, so I came out of my first use with dark specks of glitter on my complexion. I'm very pale, so this didn't work at all. I love glitter and am not opposed to it in my setting spray, but make it a more universal colored shimmer or at least a more fine mist. To me, glass skin is about hydrated skin that glows from the inside, not the artificial glow, so this was not for me at all.
It looks like a fake tan on pale, cool-toned skin
Lyyra from undisclosed
So this definitely produces a glowy finish and it feels like my makeup is set well. However, I have very fair, cool-toned skin and it looks like I just sprayed on a fake tan. This would be great on slightly deeper, warmer skin tones, for which I would recommend this product, but if you're fair and cool-toned, stay far away from this unless you're going for a "I just put bronzer on my entire face," look.
EmmaVS from Seattle
I was really excited, I've been waiting for a hydrating spray (dewy spray isn't hydrating enough for me) but boy was I disappointed. How in the heck does radiance equate to glittery disco ball face? I tried to give it a shot regardless but this broke me out like crazy. The second or third ingredient is denatured alcohol, which looks amazing short term, but is SO DRYING. This seems like a backwards product in my opinion. I love NYX but I will never purchase anything they label radiant again.
Holli from Dayton ohio
It was okay I didn't really like the glitter in it so I don't think it was for me but that is just because I don't like glitter. I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
so much glitter!
manderz from Wisconsin
there is so much glitter in this spray! its a dark bronze color as well. if you spray it on you face and let it dry you can brush away most of the sparkle though. not a terrible product, but i won't repurchase.
Lyndsey from Orlando
This setting spray was weird. It has a bunch of gold/bronze glitters inside that show up when you spray it on your face. Since the mist isn't fine enough, you get chunks of shimmer on your face. If you shake it for a long time it isn't as bad, but it definitely needs a different sprayer or less shimmer. You can be radiant and create a radiant product without putting glitter in it :( super disappointing I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
Definitely would buy again
Chimy from Philadelphia
I love NYX setting spray. It's honestly the best one I've used for this price. I've been using their setting sprays for years now. I love the new formula. I feel like it's lighter & dries faster.
Yes would buy again
Chimy from Philadelphia
I love NYX setting spray. I've been using it for years. It could all be in my mind but i swear this new formula dries faster & is more lightweight. A little goes far.
Average Setting Spray
Erin from USA
It was just an average setting spray for me. It did help my makeup last a bit longer than usual but it didn't melt my makeup as much as I would like into my face.
Joshua from Fort Myers fl
This is one of the best glowy setting sprays and I highly recommend it!
Not great for oily skin
PJ from Orlando, FL
Works like any other setting spray, but not the best for oily skin.
Setting spray of your dreams
Nayo from Peoria az
It's an absolutely fresh, glowy, setting spray, give you that all day glow with an all day set.
Xbarb from Atlanta, GA
It doesn't make me look oily! My make up lasts and the spray is perfect.
I wasn't a fan...
Trish from Huntington, WV
I wasn't a fan of this setting spray and I really wanted to love it since I love most things from Nyx! It made my face tacky and sticky it seemed and not a matte finish like I prefer. I still found that after a few hours my make up finish was not the way I prefer it. Sadly, this setting spray just was not for me. I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
Mollcop from Newport Beach Beach
I used the product as like a self tanner on my chest and arms. It worked great and I loved the hint of glitter in it.
