      Picked this up at my local Ulta and was not at all happy with the results. It was impossible to blend and an extremley chalky texture. Not to mention it creases under the eye in a matter of minutes.

        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!
