    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation:

    I'd been looking for a new line of reasonably priced, cruelty-free products, and NYX is amazing. The foundation blends perfectly on my skin; it looks like I'm not wearing any makeup, which is what I like. The coverage is not as heavy as I'd like (doesn't completely cover a couple of acne scars from my teenage years) and it took a couple of tries to find the exact right shade, because it looks too light in the package. But this is what I'm using from now on.

    • Settles in wrinkles

    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation:

    I actually use this product to blend in with my favorite, but more expensive PurMinerals liquid foundation. I am not tan anymore, so the PurMinerals is a little darker than what I am currently. Mixing it with the NYX brand still gives enough moisture to not settle into wrinkles/creases and conceal the dry patches on my skin. I've used it alone and am not thrilled with it. The next color up is too dark.

        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation:

        Not what I would consider a matte foundation, more like dewy. And it just streaks across my face, doesn't blend or form into a real foundation. Too watery and just NO... so regret buying this - so many people rave about this and it just stunk to me :(

          Works well to keep skin from going too oily, even without a primer. With a primer, you have even longer lasting coverage without needing to blot.

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation:

          It works well when I have to go out shopping and don't want a full face, but also don't want a blochy acne-scar mess. It gets the job done but after more than 2 or 3 hours it starts to wear off and appear greasy.

          Awesome Custom Coverage!!!

          By HannahJane

          from Murfreesboro, TN

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation:

          This foundation was great! Applied with a beauty blender, it's light coverage, and with a buffing brush it is a medium to full coverage. Really awesome as long as you don't apply with your hands!

            Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation:

            Since Nyx is a good brand I thought this foundation would be pretty good. Unfortunately, I was wrong. It barely covers and redness on my skin and it says matte, but it's not. Don't waste your time with this foundation.
