First Impressions: NYX Dewy Finishing Spray

I recently purchased the NYX Cosmetics Dewy Finish Setting Spray from Shoppers Drug Mart and have decided to do a first impressions review on it!
The first thing to note about this product is that it smells really makeup-y for lack of a better word. Personally I don’t like this but the scent doesn’t transfer onto the face and linger throughout the day.

In the past I’ve used spray bottles whereby the nozzle gets stuck and the liquid comes out in wet splatters which is not a good thing! Thankfully I have not had this problem with this spray as it comes out in a fine mist, allowing me to spray a nice, even layer over my face.


NYX do sell two versions of this product, the Dewy Finish version that I bought and a Matte Version- I chose the Dewy Finish because as it gets into spring I prefer a glowy, healthy look.

With regards to keeping my makeup in place, I have no complaints.
The purpose of this spray is to keep your makeup looking fresh with that “just-applied” look all day, keeping you complexion flawless and shielding it from temperature variations, sweat and air pollution. This would definitely be a great product if you find yourself constantly reapplying your makeup throughout the day.

Now, I have normal-dry skin, and I found the finish very pleasing and natural – not too dewy to the point of looking oily. It refreshed and cooled my skin and left my complexion flawless/airbrushed – not cakey nor powdery. However, for those of you with very oily skin, I wouldn’t suggest you buy the dewy finish spray – it will make your skin look even more oily and is not meant for oil-control. Although I haven’t tried it, you may want to look into buying the matte finish by NYX.

So far I definitely love this Dewy Setting Spray, i find if does a great job at setting my makeup and giving a healthy glow! Hope you lovelies enjoyed and let me know if you have tried it!!

  1. Great review just enough info to add to the wishlist hahaa- haven’t tried any NYX products as they’re a bit hard to source in NZ, but will have to look for this one. Make-up-y smell is always the worse – scent is always a determining factor for me – but if the scent doesn’t linger I’m sure it’s bareable for 10-15 minutes.

      1. That’s really good to know the smell dissipates – New Zealand is a beautiful country, glad to call it home, only disadvantage is sourcing makeup, amoungst other things.. drugstore brands like nyx and wet n wild, and even higher end, like Tarte are almost near impossible to find unless online, and Revlon and Maybelline is like $35+ here. haha YAY. The joys of being obsessed with pretty (shameless plug ..) Hope you have a fabulous weekend as well doll!!
