    Excellent over sheer foundation

    By dreamingofbrasil

    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Stay Matte Powder Foundation:

    This powder is absolutely great. It is best applied with a damp Beauty Blender (or similar sponge), using a kabuki brush gives a lighter coverage. Used over primer or bare face the coverage is too sheer to make any difference, but if you layer it over a light coverage foundation or CC or BB, it is just beautiful. It minimizes pores so well, gives a very unique, healthy looking illumination to the skin, a flawless finish. Please note I have oily/combo skin so "illumination" is not something I would like, but this is completely different. It also stays on for quite some time, has minimal transfer, feels very light on. Color choices are surprisingly nice, I picked up 06 for all over and 07 for natural shading/contouring. Highly recommend trying it out, price point is incredible, brand is cruelty free. You just need to try a few different application methods to find one that suits you best.

      I really can't find much fault with this product. I liked it. I used it over foundation and not on its own though so I can't speak to whether it is a good stand alone product.

        This was too yellow for my skin tone and I got the lightest shade. I've heard others say this as well.
        To have coverage for breakouts I had to put so much on it was chalky.

            This product is ok, but I don't think I would buy it again. It doesn't give me the coverage I like.

                  A great powder foundation for the price. Have been using this powder for about 1 year now and no issues with breakouts. I have normal to combination skin, depending on the weather. I would recommend using a moisturizing lotion during drier seasons when your skin tends to get dry since this is a matte powder, and a face primer when your skin tends to be more oily. As long as a primer is used with this powder you are good to go. I've also used this product as a setting powder for liquid foundation and it works perfect if you are looking for a more full coverage look!

                    This is a great product considering the price. It isn't cheap but it isn't as expensive as huge brand names either. I usually use it lightly over my liquid foundation. I also use a powder brush instead of the sponge it comes with for a lighter coverage. If you put too much on it can look a little chalky. All in all it is a product I have to have with me all the time! Worth the buy.
