Most Helpful Positive Review Nice Alternative to thick BB and CC Creams
This product made my over 50-year old skin glow!
My skin is on the dry side, but it is not too bad in the summer. I usually use a BB cream with SPF, but it feels heavy and it is not an exact match. I use Total Control in Cappuccino and was delighted that Born to Glow had this color as well. I was a perfect match as well as light and easy to apply with a brush and finish with a sponge. A little product is all it takes to give me a dewy glow. I use the "Can't Stop Won't Stop" concealer in Cappuccino because I do not think the product covers my dark circles perfectly. As others have noted, you definitely need to set it with setting or finishing powder of your choice. I use a primer and I find that that helps it to last longer.
Most Helpful Critical Review Could be good, but color is wrong
I chose Soft Beige, which is supposed to be medium light with cool undertone, and I was surprised to see how yellow it is! There is no way that this is cool toned. I think I'd like the foundation, but I couldn't use too much due to the color being so wrong, but I'd like to try it again in a color that really is cool toned, if they have one.

This foundation is beautiful; I got it on a whim to match my fall/winter skin since my summer shades are now too dark. It's stunning. There are so many shades, I landed on Golden Honey and it's PERFECT. The formulation is a little watery, and the finish is extremely radiant, so I probably wouldn't recommend if your skin is already oily. I, however, and painfully dry skin. This foundation is really hydrating. Highly recommend.
Go to budget foundation

When I'm in a pinch and not buying $40+ foundation this is my go to for a supple and full coverage budget friendly liquid foundation! I use a makeup sponge with it and it covers all my imperfections and dark acne spots really well. Nyx's other born to glow products are gems as well and pair nicely :)
Love the formula
Amy from MD
This foundation is smooth and gives great medium coverage. It's buildable without looking cakey. I ended up putting too much on in one layer, which looked cakey, so thin layers are best with this formula. I do like how smooth and easy to blend the formula is. I've used a buffer brush and my hands, both look great!
Medium to full coverage
Kim from North Carolina
This was far heavier than I was hoping, and it really emphasized the pores on my chin. I look better without makeup than with this. It made me look like I was trying to cover up my freckles, which is not my goal. I also wouldn't call this radiant. It looked pretty matte and cakey on my skin. Even though the overall shade range is great, I am very fair, and the shades in that range are too yellow in tone for me.
My favorite foundation ♥️
Paola from California
I love this it's so smoothing and natural looking yet gives you coverage it's my everyday fav ! So beautiful on the skin and long wearing !
Pretty good dtuff
Lindaw3 from St. Louis, mo.
This was pretty good especially at such a good price! It does have good staying power and a nice glow. You have to be careful because it's kinda watery and cones out fast. Good coverage.
Very Pretty and Lightweight
Keelee from Ohio
This is by far my favorite foundation I just tried today! The formula is very creamy and easily blends with a beauty blender. The foundation doesn't appear cake-y nor bumpy like most issues with foundations. It's a product that can easily be buildable if you want a more full coverage look. Only thing is I wish the product didn't run out so fast!
Great for Dry Skin!
Becksstein from North Berwick, ME
I have naturally dry skin and this foundation gives a lovely and lively glow to my face. It looks natural yet perfect - a healthy shine, especially on the cheekbones and it wears beautifully. I would not use this if I had oily skin, but this is a savior for the dry-skinned!
Not for textured skin
Miss Michelle from San Diego, CA
Not for oily, acne prone textured skin .
This foundation emphasized my texture and you need a lot of foundation to get full coverage.
If you have have good clear skin , you will like this .
B from Ky
This is seriously my holy grail foundation. It's literally a high medium/low full coverage. It's glowy but matte. I get so many compliments every time I wear this foundation. I recommend it to everyone. I have dry/combo skin and even when I go to work and get all sweaty it still looks great and holds up. I wear it set and not set. I have like 10 backups!
Not natural at all
Yang from Tulsa
My face looked like I have a layer of dry patchy skin on. Not for me.
My favorite foundation
Kacie from Ohio
I'm in love with this foundation! I usually have dry skin and this always covers any redness and makes my skin look beautiful and radiant with a hint of dew. It's a holy grail product for me and I would definitely recommend.
Mary from Danielsville PA
Just grabbed this product to try it out and now it is my go to foundation. I love that it is not cakey and you end up with a beautiful glow.
Randy from Raleigh, NC
Fantastic coverage but I have a problem free skin. The coverage shocked me in a good way. I got the shade vanilla and I love it. I use a brush to apply this. I do not need coverage so I need a little of this foundation. The finish is great radiant but not too greasy and it doesn't move around. I can't comment on the lasting effect of this because I don't wear foundation that long, just during work a little. I'm 33 years old with normal skin and no texture.
Carly from NJ
I tried this foundation on a day I didn't care about my makeup because I am sooo picky about my foundation. I like full coverage, no cake, not heavy, etc. I bought this because I saw good reviews and it was on sale. I tried it and kept asking my friends, "do you like my foundation?" because I was shook at how I liked it. It;s definitely perfect for an everyday foundation so I can save my expensive foundation for night time festivities.
Pretty close to perfect!
Bear from Texas
I'm use to wearing the expensive foundation but because of corona and having to wear these mask I don't wanna waste my good foundation.
It's just ok for me
Tomadeupjazz from AZ
This isn't a GREAT foundation but it also isn't bad. I don't think I would wear this on it's own just simply because it's pretty light coverage and it transfers easily even after setting with powder and setting spray. I have found that I LOVE the look I get when I mix this with my urban decay stay naked. Both foundations are a super lightweight watery consistency so they go on amazing but the stay naked has more coverage and staying power so it helps the nyx foundation a lot. I also get my perfect shade mixing the two so that's a plus. I'll use this up and depending on how many foundations I have at the time I'll buy it again to mix with my stay naked since I do love the look it gives. I have oily skin btw and this wears decently in the heat and photographs nice
Dupe for my Too Faced Born This Way Foundation

My holy grail foundation now. I have dry mature skin, doesn't emphasize lines. Love it.
So natural looking

I was actually really surprised with how natural this foundation looks as well as the coverage. It is pretty dang good. And it is an amazing price! Will be buying again.

Not full coverage or any coverage at all!
HG foundation — finally!
JKCRUSH from Finger lakes, Ny
Love. Radiant, dewy finish (but not slick or oily). Great light to medium coverage. Buildable. Feels lovely. Could be my HG!
Debs3 from Virginia
I had heard such fantastic reviews on this product and I really was expecting to love it.
I don't. I just really don't like it much. I was able to get a fairly good match for this and when first applying it, I don't think it's horrible.
The problem is that as you go through the day this becomes oxidized, patchy and it separates like crazy. I have tried with with primers, setting powders, etc, and nothing seems to help. At the end of the day, this is a sticky mess and a waste of money.
A favorite of mine!
Donna from Oklahoma
I like the color and I like the way it looks on my skin
Yes I love it
