Packaged in a matte black 60ml (2.03 fl oz) spray bottle, NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray is a lightweight, long-lasting setting spray that dries instantly with a non-sticky finish and does help to keep my make-up looking fresh, like it’s just been applied, for longer.
To use, apply all your make-up and once you’re happy with the overall look, shake the bottle of NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray well. Spritz the spray onto your face from about 15cm away, pressing the nozzle down fast and firmly to get a fine mist. The spray will dry and set all make-up.
Unfortunately, sometimes the spray bottle nozzles are not consistent and if you get a faulty nozzle, it may vary between a fine mist and spraying rather large droplets. I’ve found with trial and error (if you have a faulty spray nozzle) that spraying the setting spray into the air and then walking into the mist is more reliable than squirting the bottle directly onto my face and risk having large droplets run down my perfectly applied make-up. Test your bottle before the first use by spritzing the spray into the air (or onto your arm) to see if it delivers a fine mist.
If you do end up with a bottle with a faulty nozzle that insists on only squirting a stream or spraying large droplets, try decanting the setting spray into a travel sized misting bottle or swap a similar sized nozzle onto the existing bottle.
NYX Setting Spray looks like it’s paraben free and is also available in Dewy Finish. Available from various online retailers.
