    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.

            The color it looks to be is not what it really is. Make sure you test before you bring it home! It looked like the right color but came off way too light. It's good for mixing to make a lighter foundation.

            Bought it and instantly regretted it. The shade that I bought (I'm half black half white) was darker than I thought, didn't spread well, and although it was matte it just didn't look flattering.

            Absolutely love this product. I was hesitant to purchase this because I worried about the quality but the coverage is amazing. Prior to this I was using a much more expensive brand that didn't cover as well and last as long. Combined with a high end primer it makes my face look absolutely flawless.

            I can wear this for close to a twelve hour day and it doesn't go shiny especially on the days I am running around more than usually and am getting sweaty. You do need to moisturize otherwise you can see your dry spots real easily.

                  For Christmas my mom wanted to buy me all new make up for my face and make up brushes. I chose nyx because I like their other products a lot. I love this foundation. It covers fully, goes on great, but I have long 12 hour days and it sometimes wears off by hour 8 if it's hot out. Other than that, it's great

                  I really wanted to like this liquid foundation. I am a fan of most of the NYX products (lipsticks, eyeshadows, bronzers), but this product failed me. It goes on easy and lightweight, however it fades pretty quickly. Even after using a primer, the coverage only lasts about an hour (maybe 2 hours tops). I returned this for the Benefit Hello Flawless liquid foundation.
