      I bought this on a whim when I ran out of my other foundation Bare Minerals. I have to say I am so glad I did! I absolutely love this foundation! It blends smoothly and leaves me with a very dewy look which I love! Stays on all day with primer and is very buildable! A complete steal when it comes to the price!

      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Mineral Stick Foundation:

      I was prepared to like this but swatching it on your hand in the store is different than putting it on your face. It has more reddish undertones and it really clashed with my golden undertone skin. Since this was the darkest color in the line I really wanted to use it. I put it on at 9am and by noon I looked like a grease ball, and even though I did set it with powder the reddish undertones came through.

          Ive been looking for a new foundation and figured id give this a try. I usually do not like stick foundation since the are usually heavy and greasy but this one isnt. Blends easily, good coverage and has yet to make my extremely ance prone skin break out. Also buildable, I dont need extra concealer over my acne scars. I set it with the NYX set it and forget it mineral powder.

            I have only used this once and thought it might be a little greasy, although I am on the dry side. Really like the coverage, natural and the shade matched me perfectly. So great to have samples to match skin at store. I think satin to matte finish and it stayed nice all day.

              I've been looking for the perfect foundation stick to use to contour my face and I am so glad I picked up this product. I have a fair to medium skin tone and I use the color caramel as my contour color. This product applies lightly although you can adjust the amount of pressure during application for more coverage. I'm in love with the color caramel for contouring; it blends gorgeously when buffed out with Real Techniques Expert Face Brush!

                they were only about 4 or 5 color choices I chose the darkest shade and have been using it for a cream contour on my forehead and cheeks and it has been working well.

                    "Buildable" means that you can customize your coverage by building it with reapplication and blending from sheer to full coverage, based on your need. This product is formulated for all skin types and features a matte satin finish ideal for those with oily skin.

                    We recommend Fair (Item #: 2268556) for fair complexions with beige undertones or Light (Item #:2268558) for light complexions with yellow undertones. This product is suitable for all skin types including dry skin. For dry skin, we recommend applying moisturizer and primer prior to foundation application to smooth skin's texture for best results. Try NYX BB Cream in Nude (Item #: 2268565), which serves as a tinted moisturizer and primer in one:

                • Q:

                  Which NYX foundation would be best suited for a dancer on stage? Basically, if I'm sweating like crazy and try to dab my sweat off, the foundation won't come right off with it.
