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.

Product settles into the fine lines. Great coverage and doesn't dry out my face.

This product was recommended to me by an employee. I wanted sheer coverage on my very dry skin. This ACCENTUATED the fact that I have dry skin. I prepped first, even though the associate claimed it's a one step product, and my skin has never looked worse.

Cover for me really good. Is not heavy
blends like a dream
abby from torrance, ca
This foundation is affordable, perfect shade, and great coverage. My only con would be its really runny when it comes out. On multiple occasions its dropped on my chair, vanity, and myself. Besides that, I will be purchasing again. Blend with a beauty sponge/blender to give you full coverage that eliminates pores.

Will definitely buy this product again

Not thick and easy to apply. Feels great on the skin
Sandy from Los Angeles
used this several times and every time I used this foundation it made my skin look weird. It made my face have a weird texture and it clinged to spots on my face. I've never had this problem with any foundation it was odd.
B from New York
I like this foundation but I don't think it's very glowy. The coverage is decent. This would be better in a pump bottle instead of the tube because it dries inside the tube and blocks the hole.
Aina from Tampa
This replaced my Nars Natural Radiant foundation. My first color match was a bit orange so I repurchased in a different shade. I love it that much. The consistency is so light but it has good coverage! You should build up the coverage opposed to applying a ton of product at once.
Found a Great Color
nessa from Corona California
My skin tone is very neutral/yellow and some days leans very neutral/olive. Finding good neutral foundations at the drugstore is not always easy as most run warm yellow or pink. The shade Nude is an AMAZING choice for olive or neutral olive skin tones! I feel like I match my body perfect. Thanks for looking out NYX!!!!
I love this foundation!
Lish from Rockville, MD
This is one of my favs on the drug store end! I have tons of different foundations including a few high end but this seems to always be my go to. I have combo skin and it I usually set it with either airspun or sacha buttercup setting powder and it looks so pretty!! I read a comment about it looking patchy with the elf camo concealer and I have to admit I didn't like that concealer AT ALL. It made mine look patchy too so I prefer either neutrogena or colour pop hyaluronic concealer and it all blends so nicely! I use the color cappuccino for reference
Sam from NY
I tried this foundation on a whim and fell in love. I have always struggled to find foundations that work for me. This one, while not perfect, is amazing!! Make sure you have a good primer to use with it!!
Good foundation for dry skin!
Pineapple from Oakbrook
I typically use the nars sheer glow but I kept hearing good things about the NYX born to glow. I was kind of skeptical because a lot of drug store foundations are to matte for my skin and my skin type is dry. When I bought this I was so shocked how well and how quick it dried! I love that it stayed all day, didnt smell like anything which was good for me & it didn't crease or didn't look greasy, instead it gives you a natural flawless look. If you have dry skin, this is a good option!
Great product, makes me glow
LJ from San Diego
I found my perfect shade in this foundation, and the formula is great for my dry skin. I set my oily T-zone with a mattifying powder, and Im good to go!
I would buy this product again

It turned my entire face orange. It was thick, greasy, and overall bad.
Bel from New York
This worked good for my dry skin. I'd recommend.
Noel from United States
I have very very dry skin right now, and this foundation just exaggerated every crease and fine line I have, and looked sooo cakey on my dry spots, especially around my mouth. On my cheeks where I'm not as dry, it looks beautiful so if you don't have dry skin this might work for you. I'm so bummed because it was a really great color match too, but oh well.
Hazel from Charleston WV
This foundation is so beautiful. It does leave a lovely radiant, glow finish. It's not patchy and blends seamlessly. Easy to build. I have dry skin with rosacea and this was a gorgeous finish to my skin and did not show texture. I was able to layer contour blush and highlight without it coming off. And I lightly dusted with powder without removing the lovely glow. Hopefully this foundation will be around for a long time bc I don't think I'll find another one as good and I really want to try the concealer and any other products in this line.
Cassie from Montana
I wear foundation because of my uneven, blotchy skin and this is great for that. Seemed to last all day, impressed for the price!
I LIKE IT BUT
Auj from Albuquerque
not sure if it was the e.l.f hydrating camo concealer or this but it gave my t-zone a patchy area:/ I loved the way it felt on my skin. and I have oily skin for reference , it left me with such a dewy look. I only wanted to try this cause it's a dupe for the Fenty foundation.
eh, not really my jam
deedeeg from Minnesota
this is really runny and doesnt have much coverage at all. ive been looking to replace my foundation that was discontinued and this was no match to that

Kay5 from NJ
This foundation is great and the price is even better such a natural look you don't need much unless that's what you like!! I brought the shade deep/ cool and deep walnut both are cool undertone.. what's weird is they are almost identical in shade walnut is a tad darker!!! I HIGHLIGHTED with Nyx concealer In cappuccino IT BLENDED PERFECT NOT THAT BRIGHT BRIGHT WEIRD LOOK LIKE YOU TRYING TO HARD!!! GREAT COMBINATION FOR ME!!! Wish we could insert Pics
