My first setting spray, this stuff wasn't sticky, sprayed on well, no scent. It didn't really have a completely matte finish but instead a slightly dewy one, but it wasn't shiny at all. It kept my makeup in place for about 6 hours, then I started to get fairly greasy around the nose area. So I'd say this product would work for a night out, or short amount of time, but definitely not all day. You would for sure have to touch up midday, which kinda defeats the purpose of a setting spray.
I'd never tried a setting spray before, but I've been liking a lot of other NYX products I've used, so I thought I'd give this a shot. Unfortunately I feel like this did next to nothing for me. I have combination skin that's pretty clear most of the time, but my nose in particular gets very oily throughout the day. I've been trying to stay away from powders because of the heavy finish they tend to leave, but after using this spray I think I'm better off with the powders. I tried using a combination of powder and the spray and it de-mattified my face and left it worse off than if I had used neither. I still use it, just hoping one day it'll magically start working wonders. It doesn't make me break out or any other major negative effects, so I'll at least finish this bottle, but am going to try something else next time.
"You can do better" is definitely what this product is. - semi dewy finish - the formula is a bit sticky. - not worth my money ($15 each) I originally bought this and the dewy one as a start to owning setting sprays but these products weren't that impressive compared to 'Australis' setting spray which is also a refresher for $14.95 at Priceline. Lasting hours range from: 2-4 hours but it depends on whether you sweat. Doesn't do too well with humidity.
