I’ve go really dry skin, but I HATE any shine on my face. I prefer to look matte but with a more natural glow. I’m not really into the highlight look, though it can look really nice as I experimented with it, but it just isn’t for me. I noticed that NYX had a matte setting spray and I was intrigued to try it out!
Demand perfection! For that fresh makeup look that lasts, the NYX Professional Makeup Setting Spray – Matte is a gorgeous shine-free matte finish that is lightweight and comfortable while working hard to make sure your makeup stays put.
Well, I haven’t noticed my makeup lasting any longer, to be honest. It is a nice spray, but it’s smell is horrible! Even one of my friends commented on the smell when I applied it, and he usually never comments on anything I use in my makeup routine. As you guys know if you read any of my other posts, scents don’t bother me, as long as the product works, and I can’t really say it works…
What I can tell, is that it doesn’t dry out my skin. When I use this, my skin doesn’t look any more dry, it doesn’t make it feel dry, and I don’t get dry patches from it, which is really nice! Not every person with dry skin wants a dewy look, so it’s nice to know that there’s a matte setting spray out there that doesn’t dry out your skin. Maybe that’s why it doesn’t really work for me though, because I guess it’s tailored more to oily skin. So, if you tried this out and you’ve got oily skin, let me know if it worked for you!
