Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Stay Matte Powder Foundation:

I bought this product bc it was decently priced and I think the NYX brand is good quality for the price. I also bought this bc it was described as "powder foundation" and that sounded like something that would work well for me. I've been using a couple BB creams and loose powders over the summer but my skin gets so oily halfway thru the day. I thought this might solve my problem. This formula is so tightly packed that a normal flat top brush wasn't applying it thick enough. The container actually has a flat sponge to apply it underneath the product (it flips up like a pressed powder compact), but it was just too thin and flimsy for my liking. Ive started using a *beauty sponge* to pack it on first then a flat top powder brush to buff it in and set it. I think that method works best. Only odd thing is this product makes my skin feel soooooo "powdery." I think it's set okay but I always feel like it's gonna fall right off my face bc of how powdery it feels. It feels like your baking your face or something lol

    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Stay Matte Powder Foundation:

    Love this foundation. I've been researching many different brands because I ran out of my foundation and didn't have the money to drop $30 for my usual brand (Bare Minerals). I wanted something lightweight that matched my skintone well and had decent coverage that you could build up. So far I am loving this foundation. It is very lightweight but I can build it up to almost a full coverage. The foundation looks darker in the compact than it does on my skin and it matches me very well. I can also go longer without blotting - about 6-7 hours where I had to blot around 3-4 hours with my Bare Minerals foundation. It definitely stands up to the humidity and heat of Florida It's also a great price and I haven't had any breakouts. Will definitely buy another one to have for backup.

        Great to set the face. Specially for oily skin. But keep away from under the eye it drying and enhances fine lines. Just under the eyes

        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Stay Matte Powder Foundation:

        I got this product a few weeks ago after using liquid foundation for quite some time. I used to have a oily complexion, but now that I'm an adult my skin has become less that way. That being said, this powder doesn't cover my old acne marks and just leaves my skin looking scaly. This may work great for someone with very oily skin and little to no blemishes, but this does not work for me. I won't be buying this again.

          I have bought this twice in two different shades and I have loved both! I use it as a setting powder and I never look cakey. This powder makes my face smooth and lasts a good amount of time. I'll usually touch up at the end of the day if I need some night time use.

              This product makes your skin feel great, however it's a light to medium coverage. I don't really need heavy duty coverage and I can't wear liquid foundation so this was a great option.
