Review: NYX Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray

Hello everyone! This post is super delayed today, but I'm excited to share with you some insight on a product I've fallen in love with this winter. I said this before in my last Monday review, about how my skin this winter has taken a beating. I've had combination/oily skin my whole life, then all of a sudden I find myself in the middle of a horrible mid-west winter, and I look like a crocodile that has had far too much sun. My skin was so scaled, dry and tight feeling. It looked horrible and I wasn't sure how to fix it.

After a few months and some new products, things started to look better. My skin care routine had taken a complete overhaul, and I even changed up my makeup. One of the things that I feel saved me in touch-ups was the NYX Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray. I had to stop using powders all together this winter, and that was always how I had set my foundation. So, I started looking into setting sprays. I tried a few and they were alright, but when I spotted the NYX Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray at ulta, with "Dewy" being the key word, I knew I needed to try it.

The NYX Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray is wonderful if you want to set your foundation without powder. It's also a great setting spray for over your powder as well. It makes your skin look like skin again. I'm super excited to try this in the warmer months when I can use mineral foundation with this misted on top of it. But, for now, I love how it makes my skin look great, and helps the staying power of my foundation a great deal.

To use this product, I look up, close my eyes, then spray the NYX Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray into the air and let it fall onto my face. I usually do this 2-3 times depending on where it lands :)

Are there any skin saving tricks you have had to muster up this winter? I'd love to hear about them!

  1. Along with the Rimmel Stay Matte Primer, this setting spray has completely changed the way my makeup looks and stays on. I usually apply my makeup around 7:00 each morning. Prior to using this combination, my makeup would look terrible by 1:00. Ever since I started using the primer with this setting spray, my makeup will stay on well until 9:00 or 10:00 at night without coming off or looking bad. I've even slept in my makeup before (don't judge! haha) and woke up the next day with my foundation still in tact...
