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.
