      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics HD Studio Photogenic Foundation:

      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.

      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics HD Studio Photogenic Foundation:

      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.

        I purchased this at my nearest ulta because I needed to find a good foundation with full coverage. As soon as I put it on; my face got really oily and it looked like any kind of cheap $3 foundation. Not happy with this product

          I apply this with a damp beauty blender sponge for a flawless finish. It's easily buildable for more or less coverage. I use "sand beige" and it matches my olive skin perfectly, and I mean perfectly. I've been searching for the holy grail of foundation, and while this may not be it, it's pretty darn close.

                  I love, love, love this foundation. I am an entertainer and I have been looking for a foundation that will stay with me throughout a performance under lights, hot weather and sweat. This one is it. I can leave the stage and go right to taking photos. This one is a keeper in my makeup bag.
