This product has become my summer obsession.
I can’t entirely boast that it will keep your skin matte for hours on end during summer months, but unlike other setting sprays I’ve tried, it doesn’t instantly make the finish of your makeup dewy once you spray it. The mist dries matte on the skin, which I very much appreciate in the hot weather when I want to look shine-free for as long as possible.
My favorite feature of this setting spray is that it keeps the pigments of your makeup in place all day. While skin may not be entirely matte at the end of a long summer day, the colors of my bronzer and blush are still as strong as when I apply them in the morning. The fact that this spray keeps the pigments of my makeup in place makes it worth the purchase in my opinion. Especially when it’s hot out, my blush and bronzer seem to be the first things to fade even when my foundation stays put.
I can appreciate having my blush and bronzer stay in place and I really don’t mind having a slightly dewy look to my complexion at the end of the day.
To completely eliminate shine I think you have to combine a good primer, foundation and setting spray. And more than likely use blotting papers throughout the day as well!
This NYX setting spray is great for the price and I think worth giving a try if you are sick of products fading off your face during the day.
