This foundation is medium coverage and has a matte finish. It can be light coverage if you use a small amount, but definitely buildable to medium. I received the color Vanilla 05, which has a relatively warm undertone. I think it the shade and undertone didn't work for me, a deeper shade with a slight olive tone might've worked better. I blended down my entire neck to not have 2 tones of face and neck.
I have pretty oily skin and the final result was very, very matte. It was a bit too matte for my liking, since I usually wear minimal makeup and prefer a dewy or natural finish.
For my own routine, I'd use a pea sized amount, then apply and blend with a foundation brush and makeup sponge. I didn't set with powder since everything started looking super dry. Luckily, it didn't bunch up on any problem areas, like around the nose. I paired it with the NYX Bare With Me serum concealer, which I already own and love and is light to medium coverage. I tried it with liquid blush and highlighter, which didn't move the foundation. Topped it off with UD all nighter setting spray and it stayed matte.
Kept the makeup on for the full day and went out, nothing looked cakey. I usually get oily during the day, but didn't use blotting papers or powder because I preferred the more natural look after some oil came through the foundation. It's a product I would use sometimes if I want to do a full face of makeup, but likely not in this shade. Go for it if you love matte finish foundations but don't want the full coverage that most of them have.
I love trying new foundations, especially those with lightweight and hydrating formulas, so I was excited to try this NYX Blur Tint Foundation. The light/neutral shade was an absolute perfect match for me and it blended really well, hiding all imperfections and making the texture of my skin uniform. I have combination/sensitive skin so I noticed throughout the day it felt a bit oily but also highlighted some dry patches at the same time. I also felt that even with a primer if didn't stay totally put, especially on areas like my nose. I also noticed breakouts around my face in areas that I don't normally break out in, so I assume it was the foundation as it was the only newly incorporated product in my routine. I do appreciate the variety of shades and the way the foundation helps make your skin look blurred and smooth, but with the way it wears on my combination skin and the fact that I broke out from wearing it several times, I wouldn't repurchase it. I think it would be great for someone with normal/less sensitive skin. I do plan on experimenting with it a few more times to see if I can make it work because I think the coverage is natural and looks great!

Affordable and easily applied with sponge but made my skin look dry and flaky and didn't last through my 6 hour shift at work 😞

I saw a video recently using this foundation and thought I would give it a try. I love a lot of NYX products and wanted to love this, unfortunately it just isn't doing it for me. Did it two days in a row, put so much primer and setting stuff it should have stayed put but unfortunately my face looks like a splotchy cakey mess two days in a row...I'll be returning this and sticking to my old foundation.

Love the coverage. This foundation is smooth and easy to apply and build.

I'm 20 years old with oily acne prone skin and I have always struggled with getting foundation to stay on my face, as well as it clogging my pores, but this product is fantastic for both!! Its so lightweight, it feels like I have nothing on my skin but it still brings a great amount of coverage and has a beautiful skin-like finish! I think I have found my holy grail foundation!

I was so excited to try this foundation but my winter skin wasn't having it. It seems to cling on any little dry patch of skin that I have at the moment. The coverage is nice but just not for me. It made me look pale and dry but cakey. I didn't like the look at all. I like a more natural look and barely even wear foundation but this one wouldn't be one that I would choose.

I usually love NYX products!! But im sorry to say this was so bad. Maybe itd be better for oily skin since its matte, but it was so drying, would not blend evenly whatsoever and looked cakey/ textured on.
Bri from New Jersey
I find that it's not mattifying as described. I get a little oily after a few hours. I suggest using a primer first and setting it before applying this product. Does give smooth finish tho.
schadellb from undisclosed
this is a nice and affordable foundation. it blends well with a sponge or you could use a brush for more coverage. its definitely buildable so give it a try. it last fairly long if you use a primer and setting spray
juliebubi from Tampa
I have very sensitive dry skin, and I'm pale with cool undertones. This foundation is amazing! I've used bareminerals for years but I can't stand their prices anymore. I use this foundation with the "Plump Right Back" primer and I get so many compliments. This is definitely a new staple in my makeup bag.

Ever since I received my NYX Professional Makeup Bare with Me Blur Tint Foundation it has become my go to foundation ever since. Luv how it feels like I have nothing on

This is a really good foundation at a great price. Try it!
cutefire from undisclosed
This foundation is okay. It doesn't have a strong smell to it which is nice. I'm not a huge fan of super scented foundation products. The coverage was a little heavier than I thought it would be and it looked a little cakey almost.
Gabby from Arkansas
This foundation has great coverage but it is not for dry skin. My skin is not even that dry I just have a few dry matches and it was horrible. Will not buy again
Ronee from Lancaster
Great price for a good coverage foundation. Leaves your skin flawless and coverage lasts all day. Very little need to touch up with powder throughout the day. I love it!!!!! Definitely a go to foundation from now on.
Tay from Taylor Mill, KY
I love the shade, matches well. I used it with a primer of the same base and just had massive problems with the foundation coming off mid application on the parts of my face that were warm. I get big red patches on my face (not irritation, it's a blood flow thing) and if that's happening Id love to even out my skin with a tint/foundation. Put it on a couple times without the red flares and totally fine, but as soon as i try it with flushing it rips off with my beauty blender. In huge patches! Ive removed, applied, removed, 3 times the other day and it still happened on just one cheek. I love NYX products but this is a solid no. Maybelline super stay saved my evening.

I was using the Bare with Me skin veil which I loved. But of course they discontinued, as they do with so many products that seem popular. I gave this one a try, a lot of tries actually. First off, the shade was just slightly too light even though I had researched and researched. But that's my fault. But the formula itself is very thick. Creamy, yes, but still so thick it was difficult to blend. And very matte. Almost chalky as it dries. I realized soon to not use with my normal primer. I actually found it worked better without any primer and just my moisturizer. But still it was tough to get it smooth on my skin. I mixed it with another liquid to try to get it a different consistency, and that helped a little. It was just too much work for an early morning. The coverage was good, it's thick so it should be. And it did have staying power, even without my primer. But it just didn't look right on my skin. Blotchy, streaky, chalky. Don't even try to put powder over it. That made it worse. And the bottle is awful. It's a flip top, squeeze bottle. It was always a mess. I kept having to wipe the top and all around the edge. This one was just a fail for me.
not great from maple glen
wipes off really easy
Madzzz from Los Angeles, CA
Perfect match (light neutral) but patchy, powdery finish that enhanced texture (pores and fine lines). Wish they made a "natural" finish , lightweight (sheer buildable) version of this.

The shade was nice but the makeup soaked right in even though I had some skin prep. It stayed in every line and crease and looked terrible.

I've been using NYX products for several years now. GREAT products! GREAT prices! Bonus for me is products are CRUELTY-FREE! 😊
Alexandra Stefania from Romania
I think it's one of the worst foundations; I specifically searched the website to leave an honest review. They discontinued the old creamy foundation and replaced it with this horrible one. It dries out your face, leaves strange marks, and if you try to wipe your nose gently, it peels off in a terrible way, leaving weird traces. It makes your skin look old and dry; it's just awful. The only good foundation they had, along with the compact powder, has been discontinued

I got this product from influencer but it didn't match me correctly and it was a bit dark for me. The foundation felt nice on my skin tho. I do have large pores so they still showed
Josie from Tx
I really wanted to like it but it makes my makeup look more cakey than usual and eveb when i set it with a bunch of powder it isint set fully and moves around easily as well as the formula is too thick for a skin tint
jaxielle from hartford, CT

Crystal F from undisclosed
Not for me, made my skin look so dry. The shade match was okay though.
