    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Mineral Stick Foundation:

    With the cooler weather I've lost my everyday tan so I bought this to be my winter shade, I mix it with the medium to get a perfect match since I have a yellow undertone and this by itself would make me look ghostly. Anyway it applies well not much coverage which is unfortunate because I like to hide my freckles. It isn't a total loss though I apply one layer then sealer and then another layer to get better coverage. I'd buy it again. And it does Not smell bad, huge plus.

          I bought this to use as a contour stick. It's at least 3-4 shades darker than my skin. I use it across my cheekbones and the outside of my face. Blends very well and looks natural. I did t expect much but was very pleased! Definitely recommend!

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Mineral Stick Foundation:

          I bought this because I love NYX products. This one was just okay to me, nothing too special. It applies nicely enough and it is a good color that matches me well, but it doesn't cover very much. It feels even lighter than a BB cream to me, so I found it to be a little disappointing. However, this would be great for a casual day out or a beach day where you just want a little coverage. I wouldn't wear this for a night out though!

            Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Mineral Stick Foundation:

            This product was hard to apply, and smelled of crayon, maybe it was old. Thought I'd give it a try based on price. I really love NYX products, just not this one.

              Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Mineral Stick Foundation:

              This has an amazing fragrance-free formula and has a BEST rating on Beautypedia. I have very pale skin and the lightest color, porcelain, is way too pink, thus I took off one star. However, I wore the foundation several days anyway (not in public) and it gives my incredibly dry skin a flawless look. Blends seamlessly, fills in large pores. I applied it by dotting the tube on my face, which actually stipples, rather than polka-dots, which makes it even easier to blend with fingers and then fix any streaks with a brush. There are very few stick foundations left these days, and I wish NYX would make more neutral colors!

              I really like this product for highlighting and contouring but it is a little heavy and take more blending than other products I have used to get the effect I want. I will buy this item again!

                Really enjoy this product. Not a lot of product in the tube though. I do not wear make up everyday, but it is perfect for traveling and to keep in my purse for emergencies.
