Great coverage, but not cakey, if you don't over apply. I was a previous Clinique double pressed powder devotee, but NYX is great! And you can stock up when they have the buy one get one 50%. If you want a matte, even toned, airbrushed look, this is a great powder to try. Most of the time I don't even use a foundation with it, just a little spot concealer when needed.
Most Helpful Critical Review Starts out strong
I have very fair skin. Ivory matched really nicely. It wasn't too pink or too yellow (which can be a real problem when you are super pale). I tried wearing it alone, but the coverage was very blotchy. I couldn't seem to get an even layer. When I wore it over a light foundation the coverage was very nice. It blended well. One downside is it doesn't stay matte. After a few hours you will be reapplying to control the shine factor. I believe that whatever they put in it so that it is "not flat" contributes to this problem. For me this is an average product. I have used better powders, but they were more expensive and did not provide a color match. I will continue to use this product because of the excellent color match and reasonable price. I think that people with less oily skin would find this to be an excellent product.

I was using the ulta brand powder and recently tried this one and it works perfectly! I actually ordered a different shade that turned out to be too light for my complexion but I was able to exchange with no problems!!
Great powder foundation for light neutral skin tone
J from Ohio
Great long lasting foundation for fair skin tones and not a warm shade. Unfortunately most foundation for fair skins are either yellow or pink.
BabyBat from Los Angeles
I tried this after initially trying the Fenty Powder foundation. I like them both equally, probably this one more because of the price point. I wish they had the full range on here because it makes me feel like they might discontinue it. I have combo skin so it works well for me. I like the finish and I feel like it doesn't irritate my skin. I don't have to add another powder to keep it matte. I've been liking the lighter coverage foundations so this fits for me, you can definitely build it but if you want something to cover up redness and pigmentation this is pretty good.
Best powder for the money
Pamela from Oklahoma
Have tried other powders but always go back to this one.
I use it as a light mattifying finishing powder over Physicians Formula BB Powder foundation.
Nice, but color range is lacking
Sarah from U.S.
Works great for my oily skin. Also, talc-free! I would never try to apply this for full coverage because the shade range is so limited.
I love this powder
Rena from GA
It's a nice powder for everyone
Not for people with oily skin
Jj93 from Pennsylvania
I like this product but I have oily skin and I feel that my face looks very shiny and oily after a very short period of time. Probably wouldn't but again or will need to use extra primer to prevent this
Jmir0512 from San Antonio
Bought one to try it and the following week i bought three more to make sure i don't run out. Great long lasting coverage. I have a new favorite.
A staple in my bag of tricks
Momof2plus1 from Shelton, wa
Great coverage foundation that goes on as a powder but offers great coverage without the heavy oiliness
Love love love this product!

I do not stray from this powder! It is absolutely perfect at creating a smooth & polished foundation base, lasting through the day, and completing your look. I use the shade natural over my liquid foundation before baking and contouring & it works like a dream!
April K from California
I absolutely love NYX stay matte but never flat powder foundation. It's my go to for every day use. It's never drying, patchy or chalky. I use vitamin C serum and was worried my skin would look like mud but I didn't have any issues at all. You can build coverage with ease so if full coverage is your thing you still don't have to worry about the cakey feel.
HG setting power
Cassie from Seattle
I wish they sold this with reusable packaging or single pans so I didn't waste so many compacts. But I love this powder so much. I like the extra bit of coverage it offers for setting my foundation.
jmarz from rhode island
works so well to get rid of all day shine! feels light on my skin but gives full coverage. love this product and lasts me forever.
Poor coverage, caused breakouts
Chesh from Asheville, NC
I bought this since it was a recommended dupe to It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation. Alas, I found the coverage to be sheer. I tried to "build it" with no luck. I tried using brushes, beauty blender (dry and wet), and the included sponge. It would provide a matt effect but that's it. I would need to re-apply after a few hours indoors. Finally, although everyone's skin is different, I started breaking out after moving this product into my daily routine (it's the only change I made).
Bring it back!
Brit from Oklahoma
Tried this for the first time a few months ago. Best powder I've found. Went to buy more to discover you can no longer get the lightest shade :( also in the liquid foundation there's no option for any light shades. Don't understand!! I would continue to buy if the lights shades becomes available again. I'm very fair and need an ivory type shade. Most of my friends are as well. Losing a lot of customers by not even having an available shade for us!
Aya from Georgia
I honestly wasn't sure what to expect because I had never used powder foundation before but it applies like a dream
Mimi from Houston TX
Glad I found this powder foundation. I'm planning to keep using this instead of the stick foundation I used before.
My Staple Setting Powder
MightyMaybe from Corpus Christi, TX
I've been using this powder pretty consistently for at least a year now. I use it to set my foundation. I know it's technically a foundation itself, but it doesn't provide coverage of my redness or hold up to oil/sweat (Texas heat) enough to wear it alone. I do enjoy the mattifying effect as a setting powder. I don't find myself having to touch up during the day and I love it.
bam24 from texas
why nyx?!... WHY????!!! this had been my holy grail for at least a decade now ! how could u discontinue such a staple product?!?! not to be too dramatic but I'm hurt and im upset. I have tried many others and none compare to this powder. I don't know what I'm going to do now. I understand revamping the line and staying current but dang..dont delete the staple products! I don't have the time or money for that matter to be testing out a bunch of other powders that I already know won't be the same. I wish brands would give a clear heads up when certian products will be discontinued to give us a chance to prepare and buy multiples so we have TIME to find something else...thats the least a brand should do for their loyal customers!
Shade range is embarrassing
BaiLee from Hannibal
A woman of color can forget about this powder foundation.
I haven't purchased nor used this powder foundation, but there isn't a chance I ever will.
Looks Great on the Skin
GracieMae from Ct
Nice powder foundation.
Nikki from Kenosha, wi
I wanted a nice powder that could provide at least a little coverage. This has none at all. I even tried using it as a setting powder too over some concealer to help hide imperfections and still did nothing. Not a fan.
Absolutely love this!
Mbaker from Gouverneur NY
I have been using this product for about 7 years and it has never failed for me. I have acne and acne scars so I always have to have make up on. This matte powder is the perfect size for me to carry in my purse or my pocket if needed. Once my skin gets oily I just dap this on over it and it takes care of it without it looking like I have a ton of make up on. It's also good for going back over pimples throughout the day. It is not a powder you want to apply without a foundation though. It is blotchy. But I love it and will continue to use it!
Facepowder with that old-timey facepowder smell
KT from GA
I used it as facepowder. Coverage made my face feel tight and dry plus it smelled like the facepowder my grandma used way, way back. I returned it.
I would buy this product again
Sai from Perris
I really like how with just a little it covers the stuff i need to be covered
