      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Stay Matte Powder Foundation:

      I purchased this on a whim when my my local ulta was out of Smashbox Halo powder and I found out that they no longer sold Studio Gear (my back up), I was desperate and needed something now. My plan was to use Nyx until the shipment of Halo arrived, but to my surprise I feel in love. Nyx provides just the right amount of coverage, doesn't make me break out or irritate my skin, its long wearing and very affordable. I have oily skin so I need to reapply just just once through out the day. I wish I would have found this product sooner, I feel like I've been wasting so much money on high end powders! I absolutely love this powder and will not be going back to anything else!

        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Stay Matte Powder Foundation:

        I use it I stead of powder. The matte finish lasts all day long, doesn't feel heavy or overdone, I use it alone for just enough coverage for just going to the gym, or days of light make up.

            It is great over a BB or CC cream. It gives a great finish to your look without being too heavy. Most powder foundations dry me out and then I break out. I have really dry skin. This one doesn't bother my skin at all or clog pores.

            Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Stay Matte Powder Foundation:

            This is a good example of 'you get what you pay for'. I have really oily skin, and this does the job in the morning and through some of the afternoon. The coverage is great, covers all my dark spots and acne scars, but after a few hours, my oil does come through. However, just reapplying some of this gets rid of the shine and I'm good to go again. As much as I'd like something that lasts throughout the entire day, I'm content with this and will probably be purchasing again due to the price and what I get for it.

              Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Stay Matte Powder Foundation:

              When I went into the store I asked an employee to help me find a matte powder. I have oily skin and have problems with shine and was hoping to find something that would fix that. This powder I found was definitely better than others I've tried, but it still doesn't have that total matte finish I would like.
