    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Stay Matte Powder Foundation:

    Provides great coverage that's not heavy and since it is matte, no need to use powder afterwards. It lasts a long time and the "cake" doesn't break apart or shatter. The mirror is a good size, the included sponge is very nice. I try other foundations at times but I always come back to this one.

    I do use NYX bb cream and use the powder foundation as a touch up, tends to last about 6 plus hours.

    Not my fav

    By squirly girl

    from Arkansas

    Pros

      Cons

      • Poor Coverage

      Best Uses

      • Light To Medium Coverage

      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Stay Matte Powder Foundation:

      I usually use powder foundations but have recently been trying cream and liquid foundaitons. Powders are my fav but this is my least fav. I was hoping for better coverage.

      I've used it maybe 5 times and I already see the bottom of the compact. I suspect I went through so much trying to get more coverage. It doesn't build well at all.

        I normally use Smah Box, but was running a bit short due to Christmas, so the wonderful lady that work's at Ulta had the less expensive brand that compared to Smashbox. So that's what I got and I was very happy with it. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

        This is a great product! I use it every day for my foundation. I like light coverage and it does the trick. It is also amazing if i want more coverage to do as the finishing powder.

        • Light Coverage
        • Over foundation

        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Stay Matte Powder Foundation:

        I use this product as a setting powder so after my liquid foundation I pop this on top. I have extremely oily skin and powder is a must throughout the day. I have tried Revlon ColorStay, Revlon Nearly Naked, Covergirl Clean, Rimmel Stay Matte, and many other drugstore brands, but nothing has impressed me as much as this. It doesn't make me look as cakey as the others have. I won't say zero, but it is significantly lower. The best part of this powder is the ability to reapply all day. I get oily fairly quickly so it's nice to be able to reapply many times during the day and still look great. The only down side is that the lightest shade is still a tad too dark for my fair complexion. I can still get away with using it, but it would be nice if it came in a lighter shade.

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Stay Matte Powder Foundation:

          I was looking for an easy, simple applying powder foundation for me to use on top of my liquid foundation or on its own for lazy / light makeup wear days. I tried using it with some of my brushes but noticed that it tends to become loose and makes a mess everywhere, but was surprised when I used the flat sponge applicator included. I have combination skin and this lasts me all day without re-applying. I also have sensitive skin and it doesn't cause any redness, itchiness or breakouts. When I use it alone, it gives a nice, smooth and light-medium coverage finish. I also use it to set my concealer. Overall, this is a great product and at the same time great on your wallet! I hope this helps somebody. :)

          I like this because it's the only drugstore product with enough yellow in it. Other than that it's a so so product...

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Stay Matte Powder Foundation:

          I was really surprised by how blend-able and light this product was. It really does leave a nice matte finish, while providing coverage. Minus one star because it makes me breakout. If you have skin that breaks out easily, I would skip this product or use it very lightly.

            Great for very light fair skin. I have been looking for an alternate foundation power from the department store brands and this one does the job. This one does requires a mid day touch up as the department store brands I can go all day.
