Thursday Thoughts – @NyxCosmetics Dewy Finish Long-Lasting Setting Spray

March 12, 2020

My morning and early afternoon were spent discussing the potential cancellation of various conferences because of health concerns. I had three (3) work trips planned between now and the middle of May and today, they were all confirmed cancelled. Goodbye, Cabo, Cincinnati and Banff! How has your day been so far?!

Now, onto the review! Today, it’s on the @nyxcosmetics Dewy Finish Long-Lasting Setting Spray ($8.50 for 2.2 ounces –!

What it claims:

🔘 Lightweight, long-lasting formula

🔘 Dewy fresh glow finish

🔘 Keeps makeup looking flawless with that “just-applied” look from day to night

🔘 Cruelty-free

🔘 Vegan formula* (no animal-derived ingredient or by-product)

My experience:

👍🏻👎🏻 I have used this as my only setting spray, as well as along with another setting spray. When I have used it on its own, I apply it as my second to last step (right before mascara). What I find is that, even in the winter, it makes me a little too shiny throughout the day. However, it isn’t the dewiest setting spray I’ve ever used.

👍🏻 When I use this along with another setting spray, I apply my foundation, concealer, powders and then spray this on top. As my second to last step, I then apply a more mattifying setting spray. I have been loving the way this looks. Spraying something dewy over powders makes everything look more cohesive. Then, locking it in with something more mattifying at the end ensures that I won’t get much oilier throughout the day.

👍🏻 The mist is very nice, but I suggest holding it several inches away from your face or you may get droplets.

My verdict:

This is a really nice dewy setting spray, especially if you aren’t looking to look overly glowy. Plus, the price is definitely right because it comes in less expensive than my current favorite hydrating spray. Since summer is quickly approaching (at least that’s what I’m telling myself), I likely won’t repurchase this right when I use it up, but I would consider it next fall.

FYI, I receive a small commission when you shop via the link listed above. There is no additional cost to you.
