      This was an okay product at first. It was a shade match and provided full coverage for me. Then after a couple weeks, it started oxidizing on me. After an hour or less my face would look orange. And it was very splotchy on me. Also the print on the packaging started to come off, so every time I squeezed out foundation I'd have black stuff on my hands. Wish it would've worked for the price.

          Ive finally found the perfect foundation after trying different ones its exactly as described "matte but not flat" i was not a liquid foundation user but after i finally bought this i now use it daily and couldnt be happier i dont need to worry about my face feeling oily all day and a great tip is after applying the foundation either using your fingers(which i do) or brush, powder on some setting powder to your face or as i do to the area of your face where it tends to get more oily and youll be ready to go! Another great thing I love about this foundation is that it blends perfectly. Overall i love this product and definitely recommend it.

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

            I have had my staple foundation for a few years and it's the best I've ever used (Urban Decay Naked) but last night I spontaneously slept at a friend and did not have it on me. Luckily I knew there was a Duane Reade across the street and I could go pick some cheap one up. But as I was walking there I noticed a Ricky's on the next block and figured I'd pick up a better one there. Found this one. My usual foundation is super lightweight while still providing coverage and blendable, not cakey. This one is basically the polar opposite. Not lightweight, super greasy. I figured once I put on face powder to set it, it would calm down a bit, but no. Was shiny looking and thick feeling. It feels like I'm wearing a pound of oily plaster on my face. And if it's slightly above Arctic temperatures my whole face feels like it's melting off. I'm not sure what is "matte" about this foundation. Nothing matte about it. The only positive about it is the coverage is not too bad if you have acne or a few zits. But not worth the rest of the headache. Wish I could return it.

              I decided to try this instead of the usual brand I buy to save some money. It goes on easily and looks great at first but after a couple of hours, even with primer and a setting spray, it makes my face really oily and it basically melts off. I tried applying a thinner layer and got the same results. I will definitely spend a few extra dollars and go back to my old brand.

                I began using NYX whenever I worked in the entertainment industry in California. What I love the most about this product is that it doesn't have as many chemicals as the other brands and a little goes a very long way. Also, this product won't melt in the hot Texas sun.

                The best way to use this product is with a setting powder.
