Hello my gorgeous friends! How are you all ? I still have mild fever But I will not stooping posting Products reviews on my blog ( I am getting Bored resting all day and night) This time I am doing a review on a foundation by NYX. And The foundation is NYX Stay Matte but Not Flat Foundation. I got mine from Cherryculture.com but you can get this from Sephora India.I chose soft beige shade in this foundation.
Price :- In Sephora, Price is Rs 725(Very expensive) But I got from Cherryculture for $7.50 with Free shipping
What NYX Claims :-
NYX Cosmetic’s Stay Matte but not Flat Liquid Foundation provides full coverage of mineral enriched matte finished. The oil-free and water-based formula is perfect for in the studio or all day long!Oil freeWater basedFull coverageMineral enriched with a matte finish
My experience with NYX Stay Matte but Not Flat Foundation :-
Packaging is slightly different from normal foundations. Mostly foundation comes in pumped bottle or just a glass jar. But this comes in a plastic tube which is very travel friendly. Easy to carry anywhere.The Company said that it is Oil free and water based formula Which means no mixing of natural oil with foundation oil that cause breakouts or acnes. Consistency of the foundation is very thick, but it blends easily with hands also. Right now I am using my kleancolor beauty sponge for application and I am obsessed with this combo. It gives me a good coverage not full coverage as it is mentioned on its packaging. In one application, I can see my uneven skin becoming even toned and any acne scar hides by one application . In the second application, I saw proper coverage. It means, For full coverage You will need 2 to 3 applications of foundation on your face. Is it matte in Finish ?? Hhmm for 1 hr, Yes It gives me matte look but after 1 hr It gives me dewy finish. I love both matte and dewy finish in foundation.So It is totally OK with me. But Not OK with oily, acne prone skin at all. And this foundation feels light on my skin. Not cakey at all. Staying power is 4 to 5 hrs maximum then You will need touch ups.
Overall I like this foundation, If you like medium coverage and dewy finish then You can buy it. If you have oily skin and You want matte finish for 4 to 5 hrs. Then this is not a foundation, You should buy.
