    The shade was perfect but it wasn't matte for long and the second you touched it got on your fingers

        I have had the hardest time finding a long-lasting foundation that works well on my oily skin, but this works great! It lasts most of the day, goes on easily, blends well. I'd say it has medium coverage, but it's totally buildable. I've tried inexpensive & expensive foundation, & none have compared to this. I'd recommend this to everyone, but especially my other oily faced gals who can't seem to find good foundation.

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

          I HATE foundation because I have combination skin that tends to be super greasy in areas. I dislike the entire feel of foundation, until I tried this. I forget that I'm wearing it because it goes on so smooth and light. Definitely not full coverage if that is what you are looking for but it evens out my skin tone and with its yellow undertones, works well with my fake tan. I just wish there were more colors because I'm not very dark but still feel that the medium beige can appear too light at times.

          Not The Best Product

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

            I bought this in soft beige as I have light/medium skin. It was a bit yellow to my taste, but when applied over the whole face, it matched well. I think it has a good formula. It wasn't particularly greasy or dry when I applied it, and when I first used a foundation brush, it went on smoothly, then I went over with my fingers, and then a beauty blender to make a flawless finish. It is definitely not full coverage as it says it is. I still had to go over with my concealer over some acne scars and under-eye circles. Though it has a matte finish, it still does a great job in keeping the skin looking dewy and glowing, so it does what it says in being "matte but not flat". The only problem I found later was that it seemed to come off a bit dry and powdery in certain areas of my face, so it didn't come off as very natural. It also started settling in some creases on my skin, emphasizing them later on in the day. Not good. Also, this contains parabens, so I'm not too sure if I will use it for long periods of time.

                Color was completely off from the shade on the tube. Greasy application and made me look absolutely ghostly. Also some weird chunkyness occurred when I was applying it to my face.

                  Disappointment

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

                        Unlike others, I was surprised to find a perfect color match for me- a rarity given my skin is quite pale and is more neutral in undertone than either pink or yellow (too yellow and I look like death, too pink and I look sunburned). If color matching were our only need in a foundation, this would be one I love.

                        However, everything else I encountered was nothing special to downright bad. The foundation can be a nightmare to apply, streaking to some degree no matter the application method (although fingers worked best for me). Using primer or moisturizer underneath made it streak even worse- one obviously silicone based the other was water based like the foundation- despite being given time to sink in/dry down. It did mattify oily areas for some time (varies), but it also clung to any particularly dry area (healing acne, flakiness).

                        Like others, I will probably use this with another product or in specific situations but won't be purchasing again once it's gone.
