NYX Cosmetics has now a strong foothold in the makeup industry. Their affordable but good quality products have made them stand out everywhere. And they have almost every product for every skin type plus their lippies are to die for!! I love NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams.
Coming to setting sprays, I have already used Kryolan and Makeup Revolution setting sprays and wanted to try UD All Nighter but decided to get these 2 instead of that. I will surely get Urban Decay one too soon.
Since my brides have different skin types and likings all the time, some want total matte finish while some long for that dewy touch, I got both these sprays from NYX. Lets see how these fared!!

My Verdict on NYX Matte and Dewy Setting Sprays –
I have been using these setting sprays on myself and my brides for 4-5 months now and I am ready to share my opinion about these. In winters, most of the sprays work but in Delhi’s summers and rains, most of the products fail. One of the most searched query becomes “how to make makeup stay in hot and humid weather”. Right?
Hence, these setting sprays. So, in summers, I was using this matte finish spray and it never gave me a reason to complain. Not that I find this extraordinary but it worked and that’s what is required. though I still love my Kryolan Setting Spray more. This matte spray is meant for matte finish and is especially good for summers and humid weather. Those with oily, acne prone skin should go for this one.
For those with dry skin and wanting a dewy finish, they use Dewy finish spray and it surely gives a dewy finish to makeup and keeps it intact for long. Spray it 1-2 times to get that perfect glow-y finish. Matte one would last whole day, more as compared to dewy one but you can always spray more without any worries. you can refresh them as per your skin’s demand. Same finish, no stickiness, all perfect :).
I just spray it at arm’s length over whole face in a rotating motion generously and let it to dry. Distance is the key. You can dry it fast under fan too. Once dry, it makes makeup stay intact and waterproof. It comes off easily with makeup remover.
- Both work as intended
- Nozzle spray pump, convenient to use
- Matte is good for oily skin and hot, humid weather
- Dewy is good for dry skin and winters
- Both make the makeup stay long and can be retouched as required
- No stickiness
- makes makeup waterproof
No such cons. Bit of alcoholic smell, very light, can bother some. But it goes away pretty fast.
Always spray at arm’s length. Never think that spraying from bit near will deposit more product or have better finish. No. It fails that way and you will feel that spray didn’t work for you. No spray will!!
Spray from a distance always and get that perfect finish and results. You can try spraying it before foundation and again in the end too. Many makeup gurus use this technique.
MGA Rating –
These are pretty and affordable bottle which perform as intended. These make the makeup long lasting and give a fine finish to makeup. You can surely try these as per your skin type. Especially those who suffer with makeup melting down, foundation creasing, you got to try this thing. You won’t be disappointed!!
