The NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray is a spray intended to be used after makeup application to give a matte look and to extend the wear of your makeup. This Setting Spray does not have an aerosol spray.
I like spraying this on my face because it gives you a cool, refreshing feel. I use 2 or 3 sprays to cover my face, holding the bottle 6-8 inches away from my face. The spray stays where you put it and does not run down your face whatsoever. While it provides the cool feeling, I do not notice a difference in the finish of my skin, meaning it does not make my face look more matte. It does not make my face look dewy or shiny either, it leaves the skin with quite the natural skin look.
Whether it extends your makeup or not all depends on you and your skin type. I have dry-combination skin, so my makeup normally stays on pretty well. I am not sure how this setting spray would work on oily skin. I have noticed an increase in wear in my makeup. I don't use this everyday (mainly because I forget to) but I have found that my makeup doesn't look that great by the time I get home on the days I don't use the spray. Often during the middle of the day when I look in the mirror and think "wow, my makeup looks better today than usual," it's the day that I have used this setting spray. I find that this setting spray maintains the color and color intensity of my eye looks as well as maintains my blush color throughout the day. (I can't speak for it prolonging foundation, as I rarely wear foundation).
