    Its a nice size to carry with you in your purse, but as a foundation......not so much.
    I love NYX products.
    The blotting powder is my favorite.....

      I have fair skin and I use this to contour and it works well.I bought the color caramel and it kinda has a not so cute orange tint to it which i don't like but If you use a powder to set it it looks nice.It MUST be set with a powder or it will smudge and wipe off.For contouring it's good not sure how it would work for foundation though.

        Easy to use, good coverage, doesn't get trapped in pores or lines. First bought this a shade too light and hated it. With the right color, I love it, especially how easy it is to carry it with you on long days or travel with it. Great price, great buy.

        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Mineral Stick Foundation:

        This would work for those with very oily skin or those who dont want much coverage. For me, it just didnt look good on my skin. It looked dry and didnt offer much coverage. The color I chose was definitely off - they look darker than they apply.

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Mineral Stick Foundation:

          My skin tone is fair I been contouring with powder and wanted my counter to be a little lighter thought this could be the color to bring down that countour but it's to light. Won't work for me, not even for a foundation stick, as it is to be. No coverage at all!

                  Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Mineral Stick Foundation:

                  I am a brown skin African American woman. I am an everyday makeup user and instead of purchasing the new NYX contour pallet I decided to use this stick to contour. It works great for that purpose. Unfortunately NYX doesn't have a shade for the brown girl like me so I wouldnt use it for a full face foundation. However to contour, it did its duty!

                  Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Mineral Stick Foundation:

                  I use this product to highlight and use underneath my eyes to cover my dark circles. I love NYX products and I would compare a number of them to some of the high end products that I purchase and commend NYX for their reasonable prices. The only complaint that I have about this product is that it has a cakey look and looks like powder after it dries, making my under eye area looking dry and aged. This product is good for other uses such as simple blemish cover ups, but it probably wouldn't last all day and ends up looking extremely unnatural in terms of texture through out the say.

                  Purchased this product to replace Max Factor Pan-Stick, Nude Ivory, hoping for suitable substitute, this product is not the replacement I was looking for at all.
