Most Helpful Positive Review Love it!
This is a great foundation that won't break the bank!! I looked at the various pictures that were featured, but I had to try a few shades before I found my perfect match. Fortunately, I was more than happy to buy more colors, as I work as a makeup artist. This foundation goes on smooth and really gives you an airbrush finish. I also brought the special brush that can be purchased along with it and I was very happy! I would purchase this again and I would definitely recommend this product to my clients. A little goes a long way so I am confident that it will last for a long time to come!
Most Helpful Critical Review Terrific texture, Chalky finish
I had high hopes when purchasing this foundation, based on reviews I had seen elsewhere and the general buzz around the product. I like drop foundations because of the control in coverage they give users. I ordered a bottle of this as soon as it came out, and love how it feels on my skin, as well as how far 2 drops go. What I didn't love was the chalky--not matte, not "powdery", not streaky--finish. I had hoped it was maybe a defective mix in bottle I had purchased here, so I purchased a second at a local retailer. Same result. I have never gotten a chalky appearance from any foundation before. Would not recommend.
Reviewed by 2949 customers Use model photos for color guide (not descriptions)
Karen from San Francisco
I relied on the descriptions to select my shade and that was my mistake; I should have matched the model photos instead. Rather than returning the too-light shade (Buff) since the postage would cost about the same as the product, I opted to just order a darker shade in the same warm tone (Golden). Thankfully I tan easily so this actually gives me flexibility for the summer months; I just change the number of drops according to my skin tone and I have a perfect shade every time. I've used mixed in with my SPF moisturizer for a lighter everyday look, and alone for more coverage. Minus one star because the dropper makes a terrible mess at the bottle opening.
I would buy this product again
J. Lang from Scottsdale, Arizona
I use this product daily. I wear the color alabaster because I like to be a little more on the pale side vs warm side. I find that the formula is liquidity and fairly easy to work with or built up. Not cakes or greasy. Comfortable to wear and feels very light.
Not too bad
Rico from Colorado
Got this for my sensitive skin, so far since wearing it, my skin has not become irritated or broken out. The color seems to match, you just need to build it if you want fuller coverage.
By far my favorite foundation
Mohogany shade from North Carolina
I have very oily acne prone skin and believe me when I say I've tried sooo many different foundations 🙄. This is a foundation that not just keeps me in control, but it has amazing coverage and blends so well onto my skin. I wear it everyday to work. I can choose from doing a 'no makeup ' makeup look to a dramatic night out. My only complaint is that I wish there was more product. I run through a bottle in less than two months.
Skincare searcher from Richland, WA
This is a pretty sheer product, which is fine because I can build the coverage to get the desired result. My issue is that I've only used it a couple times and there is already a significant amount of product gone from the bottle, and I don't think I've even been using that much! I thought it was a good deal for the price but honestly with the amount of product you get I think I'm paying more than when I buy a slightly larger, double priced product.
Love love love this stuff!
Emma from VT
I typically use powder foundation for my daily makeup but when I need more coverage or have a special event I use three drops mixed with milk hydro grip primer plus an extra drop for touch ups and I'm good to go!
My favorite foundation
RN2BMama from Columbus, OH
I have used this foundation for the last 2-3 years. Prior to that I used Bare Minerals. The coverage NYX provides is just as good as Bare Minerals at a fraction of the price. The product goes on smoothly and lasts all day. I have light skin with olive undertones and #9 matches my skin tone beautifully. I could not be happier with this foundation.

I use it as my daily face make up
Kristen from Kentucky
I really love the way this makes my skin look! I have very oily skin. I did order to light of a shade though.
liv from Chicago
If you are looking for a very light coverage and a dewy almost wet finish, then this is for you. If you have oily skin or need a fuller coverage, I would skip. After somewhat if a disappointment, I now use this in combination with a stick foundation to give cakey foundations a glow. You really have to set this one good, or it will slide all over and get on your clothes and hands.
Had Its Ups And Downs
Crazy-for-U from Minnesota
First of all, I like that you can drop the amount of coverage you're seeking with the instructions provided on the bottle. Second of all, if you're a greasy girl, this is not the best for oil control. Third of all, it actually has a super nice finish, but be warned if it starts breaking apart near the end of the day.
don't regret buying
butterfly from cali
this foundation is really good, but if my skin is a little dryer than usual, it does cling to dry patches. i have severely dry skin and some days are worse than others. if you apply a nice moisturizer under, it will look flawless on dry skin. i got the lightest shade, but it is a little too light for my pale skin. that's okay, because after bronzer and everything, you can't really tell. the coverage is amazing because it ranges from light to full, depending on how many drops you use. i recommend this product.
It does absolutely nothing
Jane from Houston, TX
Product sucks. Doesnt cover no matter how much you apply. I constantly had to put more on throughout the day. Totally not sweat proof. Leaves weird uneven patches sometimes. I HATED this foundation.
Yerrr from New York
I love NYX products honestly it's always a hit. It is good for matte foundation.

i suffer from really awful cystic hormonal acne and i've never been able to find a foundation that ACTUALLY covers it- before this one. i love how buildable it is, too!
GREAT MATTE COVERAGE

This is my go to foundation when on a budget or out of my other foundation, I love how little you need
to achieve a soft matte full coverage look
My go to summer foundation
Violethue74 from Huntsville, AL
I typically use a good moisturizer and 2 primers before use- however I'm 45 so I have laughlines and wrinkles I'm trying to prevent this from settling in. I apply with a damp sponge and it always gives me a flawless look. I set with a powder and it lasts all day. I love this and for the price it's amazing. I normally wear everyday and this will last all month.
100% my go to.
Laney. from Indiana.
I LOVE this foundation. Very buildable, blends wonderfully. Holds up to 12+ hour wear in a auto manufacturing/factory assembly line setting. My make up looks just as good at the end of the day, as it does when I first apply it! I set it with an HD setting powder, but I have always done that anyways. Even on days that I don't, the wear lasts 10+ hours.
Separates and sticks to dry patches.
mgmAZ from Tucson, AZ
I read reviews and thought I had a 50/50 chance of it working for me. It did not. It wipes right off after a couple hours. It was pretty bad. I liked the idea of building my own coverage, but it just separated so badly. It also sticks to any dryness you may have. I moisturize and use primer and they didn't help.
Best Summer Foundation
CBing from GA
Coverage is bomb. Have been buying for a few years.
Apply, set, go.
Michmercc from Georgia
First off, price! Hello! Love that. 5 stars only because it doesn't beat my #1 tarte Foundcealer foundation. This Is not a thick foundation, and I personally prefer lightweight but build able if needed. This is for sure a more natural wear foundation. If you want full coverage, this probably won't be for you. It's build able but still not past the natural look point. I have combo skin, but more in the dry side. This doesn't feel dehydrating on my skin. Since it's light weight, and liquid, it's very "watery?" So I suggest applying small drops instead of massive drops. It will drip right off your face and into your clothes/whatever.
Love this foundation
stef from Buenos Aires, argentina
I used this foundation for a lot o parties and I started my makeup around 8 pm and when I got home in my oiliest zones I had no foundation at all (I have combination skin, for normal skin I think this will really work). I also used it for some small photoshoots at home and it made my skin looked amazing.
