Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Mineral Stick Foundation:

I do like this foundation. It is very easy to apply, has a nice medium coverage that you can build, goes on very smooth and creamy, and is also portable. Hasn't caused any issues with breakouts. My only complaint is that it doesn't last as long as other foundations I have used. Starts to come off after a few hours

does not settle

By josie32

from South Carolina

Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Mineral Stick Foundation:

this product was marketed as a highlighter, but ended up being about the same color as my skin. the product does not settle or dry, and if you move your face at all the product moves and shows the wrinkles of whatever part of your face you moved. I have even tried using a setting powder and spray to fix this problem but it does not work. this foundation remains wet and at the end of the day is has a "swirly" appearance. I normally love NYX products but this was a huge disappointment.

Dewy Finish (not for me)

Pros

  • Blends Well

Cons

  • Doesn't Stay On
  • Too Greasy

Best Uses

  • Normal Skin

Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Mineral Stick Foundation:

This product was not bad but not great either. The closest color they had to my skin tone was too orange. If I blended it into my neck really good it wasn't as noticeable. Also, I have combination skin and this had too much of a dewy/greasy finish for my taste. It seemed to wear off easily as the day went on. Especially around my nose area.
I prefer NYX's pressed powder foundation to this.

Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Mineral Stick Foundation:

I have very cool undertones so I'm on a constant quest to find a make up shade that doesn't look orange after 15 minutes (if it doesn't look orange going on). This is one of the few I've tried that blends perfectly and stays that way. I used the lightest shade (01) this winter. I've just moved to the next shade (02) for summer.

I've used foundations over the decades that range in price from $10 to $100. This is as good as any of the brands I have tried regardless of price. I was specifically looking for a cream foundation because I've seen several recommendations that cream foundations are the best choice for older women.

A cream foundation is difficult to find. One that is not animal tested is even harder to find (sadly NYX 's new parent company does test on animals).

The only negative is, like most light coverage foundations, it does need to be touched up as the day goes on. However, the way it is packaged, makes it easy to carry along.

    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.

        Best Uses

        • Acne-Prone or Oily Skin

        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!
