Review: Cover FX Dewy Finish Setting Spray

Hi Beauties,

You asked for it, so here it is! My review of the Cover FX Dewy Finish Setting Spray*. To be honest I don’t really see how the new Dewy Finish Setting Spray is different from their existing Illuminating Setting Spray.

Cover FXAbout the Dewy Finish Setting Spray

“Dewy Finish Setting Spray weightlessly sets makeup, imparts a dewy, hydrated glow, and ensures all-day makeup wear. This quick-drying, 100% alcohol-free formula is designed to provide a hydrated finish while keeping your foundation, blush, eyeshadow, and concealer in place without feeling sticky, greasy, or drying.”

About the Illuminating Setting Spray: 

“Ready. Set. Glow!  This alcohol-free setting spray provides instant illumination while giving your makeup serious staying power. The ultra-fine mist application delivers an even, luminous finish making this a perfect all-over highlighter for both face and body– and the more you mist, the more intense you glow.”

To be honest they sound very similar. The only key difference I noticed was the Dewy Finish is cruelty free and vegan. However from my understanding I thought the whole Cover FX brand was cruelty free- correct me if I’m wrong…

Here’s my makeup freshly applied using the Kat Von D Powder to set my foundation, no spray used just yet.

Overall Thoughts: 

  • Retails for $31 USD or $45 AUD (I think)
  • Available from Sephora. The new Dewy Finish Setting Spray is not on Sephora Australia just yet, but will be available in the coming weeks
  • Just a reminder I have oily/ combo skin. Realistically if I was to purchase a setting spray, this wouldn’t be my first pick. I’m all about a mattifying setting spray and absolutely love the Cover FX Mattifying Setting Spray and even wore it on my wedding day!
  • With the Dewy Finish Setting Spray, the spray is super fine. Just below, you can see my makeup freshly applied and using the Dewy Spray. As you can see I don’t look dewy at all. I even spritzed more than I usually would- but still no dewyness.
Here’s my makeup after I just applied the Cover FX Dewy Setting Spray.
  • Over time when my natural oils come through I notice the finish ends up looking more dewy- however I don’t think that’s with the help of the spray.
  • Below is my makeup after 5 hours and you can see there is more luminosity but not overly dewy.
  • After 8 to 10 hours I notice my makeup looks luminous, a tad oily but overall no movement of makeup which is a win.
And here’s my makeup 5 hours later. It looks like its oxodised a bit, but I don’t think it actually has. I think its just the afternoon light being more warm tone.

Overall I think this setting spray is a bit of a dud. I don’t think it provides enough dewyness considering its meant to create a dewy finish. I find MAC Fix + is better for that, however MAC Fix + is not a setting spray. I have tried the Cover FX Illuminating Setting Spray once and find that its more luminous and dewy. So if you’re after a dewy/ illuminating setting spray I recommend going with the Cover FX Illuminating Setting Spray.
