    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics HD Studio Photogenic Foundation:

    I like is very liquidy and I like the light reflecting particles. I had to get two different shades to blend to create my ideal skintone match which was quite a bummer. But I overlooked that and was hoping for the best when I tried it. But doesn't cover that well it gives a nice sheer delight coverage doesn't feel heavy and it does have somewhat of a natural finish to it which I really do like. But it doesn't seem to stay on that long and it doesn't seem to cover blemishes dark spots or really even out the skin the way I would like. Overall it's not bad but it's deafly nothing special.

          There are no shades for ethnic skin tones. I would love to try the product, but none of the current shades shown in this add match my skin tone (brown skin).

                    personally, i love nyx products. i bought this product expecting it to be this amazing foundation and i wouldn't ever want to buy anything else. well, i still find myself in search of that holy grail foundation. to me, this foundation is very much over priced. i would only suggest to use this product if you plan on being in a photoshoot. it has no spf, therefore it will make your skin have more color whenever there are photos taken and wont give your face that chalky look like most foundations would. to me there was really nothing special about this product, i just expected more considering it was 18 dollars. the coverage isn't that great, there aren't a lot of color options, it sometimes leaves my skin looking flaky, and the coverage really isn't that great.

                    I love NYX products but this foundation just didn't do it for me. It has been the only foundation to ever cause me to break out. I also find that the colors are not very good for fair-skinned people, it was difficult for me to find my shade and I could only wear this in the summer. If this foundation wasn't so dark and greasy, and lost the chemicalish smell, it would be pretty good. It's not worth $15!!

                      I will never buy this product again.
                      It looks great when it is first put on, but it makes my face turn into an oil slick, when I have combo skin and never have that problem.
                      It wears off very easily too.
                      I will never buy it, use it, or recommend it to anyone.
