Comments about Nyx Cosmetics HD Studio Photogenic Foundation:

I love NYX products but this foundation just didn't do it for me. It has been the only foundation to ever cause me to break out. I also find that the colors are not very good for fair-skinned people, it was difficult for me to find my shade and I could only wear this in the summer. If this foundation wasn't so dark and greasy, and lost the chemicalish smell, it would be pretty good. It's not worth $15!!

    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics HD Studio Photogenic Foundation:

    I will never buy this product again.
    It looks great when it is first put on, but it makes my face turn into an oil slick, when I have combo skin and never have that problem.
    It wears off very easily too.
    I will never buy it, use it, or recommend it to anyone.

    I purchased this at my nearest ulta because I needed to find a good foundation with full coverage. As soon as I put it on; my face got really oily and it looked like any kind of cheap $3 foundation. Not happy with this product

      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics HD Studio Photogenic Foundation:

      I apply this with a damp beauty blender sponge for a flawless finish. It's easily buildable for more or less coverage. I use "sand beige" and it matches my olive skin perfectly, and I mean perfectly. I've been searching for the holy grail of foundation, and while this may not be it, it's pretty darn close.

              I love, love, love this foundation. I am an entertainer and I have been looking for a foundation that will stay with me throughout a performance under lights, hot weather and sweat. This one is it. I can leave the stage and go right to taking photos. This one is a keeper in my makeup bag.

                Terrible foundation. It smells horrible, looks incredibly cakey after about half an hour. I'd recommend an other foundation in the world over this one. Overall I wish I had looked at other foundations before buying this overpriced one....
