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

    I am in my 40's and my skin is becoming more sensitive as I get older. Revlon stopped making my favorite foundation and I spent about 2 years trying different brands with no success. Then I tried this foundation on a whim. This foundation is super cheap, but I know that the quality of the other products of NYX that I have tried have been very good (lip gloss and eye shadow). This isn't my "perfect" foundation but for the money it is a good choice for someone with sensitive skin who wants medium coverage. I have mature skin and put this on over my skin lotion. It stays on throughout my 8 hour day. :) The color choices are pretty minimal. So I have to buy #1 and mix with #2 to get a shade that is close to what I need. I never thought I would get any coverage with such an inexpensive foundation. I also thought that it would totally break my skin out. Glad that I found this product and it has worked well so far. Thanks NYX for not breaking the bank! :)

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

    I use this foundation with the REAL TECHNIQUES sponge. I like the look I get; however, the sine and oil in my T zone is not controlled when the product states it will. Otherwise good foundation when I use Rimmel's stay matte translucent as a setting powder and I blot at least 2 a day. The one thing I don't like is that it is a wet kinf of foundation and takes a while to set.

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

      I work at McDonald's and as you would think it can get pretty warm behind the counter. I use this foundation every day and love it. On a 5 hour shift I'll only need to touch up with the NYX blotting powder maybe once, and that's only because of the heat. Any other day I can just apply and forget. I have an oily T-zone, but this combined with the blotting powder works wonders for me!

      FINISH W/ POWDER TO AVOID OILY BUILDUP

      Pros

      • Blends Well

      • Good Pigmentation

      Cons

      • Too Greasy

      Best Uses

      • Full Coverage
      • Light To Medium Coverage

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

      I wrote a review below- and though this foundation WILL get oily after a few hours of wear... In order to avoid this, i use NYX Studio Finishing Powder Translucent Finish. And this REALLY does work. I LOVE this foundation, i love the cover, and the color matches my skin. But the downfall was it WILL get oily throughout the day. It's the only makeup that wont oxidize on my skin- and setting the foundation with NYX Studio Finishing Powder Translucent Finish fixes this problem perfectly! And best part of all- it's LONG lasting! i never have to touchup!

      Just a tip!!

        Love this product. Normally I have to buy hypoallergenic foundation and it still causes me to have a reaction sometimes. This product is very easy to apply and blends well with my skin color. I haven't broken out from it or have had any type of allergic reaction.. Best of all, its a great price and a little goes a long way! Deff my new fave :)

          I have a HORRIBLE problem is OXIDATION and this is the ONNLLLYYY brand that won't turn orange on my face... I've been searching for 3years for a foundation- and who woulda thought it would be the cheaper stuff?! Such a great brand! This one foundation has turned me into a BRAND FAN! Everything I buy now is NYX. Love it.

          Will turn shiney/oily after a few hours- but powder or touchup will fix that. Love this product.
