            I really liked this foundation but I did end up returning it. I wish they had more color options. I have a fair to medium skin tone and even the darkest shade looked too pale on me.

            I purchased this in Ivory. It's great for full coverage. I usually have a difficult time finding foundation light enough for my skin tone, but this is perfect. I do thin it with some moisturizer for the summer. It is perfect texture for winter.

              Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation:

              I normally spend sooo much on high end foundations because I just have so many things going on with my face. I'm a pink toned porcelain skinned, acne prone, and oily skinned picky with make up girl and with alll those things it can make finding a foundation hard and make my wallet light. I actually love this foundation. I was just having problems with the MAC Pro Long-Wear foundation breaking me out really badly and the color just didn't match me at all but honestly when I first put this foundation on I matched my skin tone perfectly. I bought it in the Creamy Natural. The only thing so far that I see is that it did get kinda of shiney in the past two hours I've been wearing it which could be from the primer I put under it but other than it it's awesome which is the only reason I gave it 4 stars. I really do hope it does last long on my face because I really don't want to have to spend a ton of money on foundation anymore. Ugh! Fingers Crossed!

                I am late 40's and have sun spots, acne scars that need full coverage. I have tried many high end products, my fave being Make Up Forever because it covers so well but the cost is $40! This covers just as well and I like that it is a satin finish - not flat. My only issue is I would see tiny black flecks that almost look like mascara on my face, it was the black lettering from the tube! I avoid by trying not to touch the tube lettering and get on my hands.

                I have fair, combination skin. I was looking for a medium coverage foundation to cover my cystic acne marks. This concealer has ok coverage but feels like putting paste on my skin. It is SO thick that it is difficult to smooth on. It is not pleasant to feel the makeup on your face so heavily!

                Also it is not matte. It quickly became very oily especially in my t-zone while still keeping my dry patches flakier than ever.

                The stay matte powder is very nice though!

                  Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation:

                  I have entered the "mature" skin phase. I have great skin for my age, but I used mineral powder makeup for years and now find that I need a bit more moisture. I have used all kinds of different drugstore brands and was really interested in NYX products.
                  I picked this up in soft beige. I was worried that it would be too dark but it is perfect for my skin tone. I put in on over the NYX BB cream (which I can wear alone on some days) I love that it isn't a true matte, but more of a satin finish. At my age we don't want sparkle but I don't want to look dry either.
                  Unlike other reviews I have no problem with how long it lasts or with it changing or getting oily or fading.
                  They could stand a few more shades but for my skin tone the color was perfect. A little goes a long way. I will most likely stick with this unless NYX comes out with something I like better.

                  I have a lot of scarring from acne and it is hard to find a foundation that lasts al day and covers my dark spots. This foundation went on beautifully and covered everything nicely with one application. It is not all that "matte" (I found it to be somewhat dewey) but after putting my setting powder on it was great.
                  CONS: only lasts and looks good for maximum 5 hours. Especially in the warm weather it slipped right off my face

                  • Q:

                    I'm not sure which shade would best suit me either Ivory or Creamy Natural. I have pink undertones and fair skin. I usually buy Ivory in different brands of foundation, but wanted to see if the creamy natural would be a better fit. Do you think the Creamy Natural would be too dark for me?

                      We recommend Creamy Natural for fair/porcelain skin tones with peachy/pink undertones, while Ivory is best for those with fair/porcelain skin and yellow/golden undertones.

                      The deepest shade available is Medium Beige (Item #:2254926), which may be too light for your complexion. We'd recommend visiting your nearest ULTA store to view and test the shades in person:
