NYX stay matte but not flat foundation Review

NYX stay matte not flat foundation
Ever since a NYX counter came to Glasgow I have been treating myself to a few of their cosmetics. The first thing I thing I wanted to try was the lipsticks but this caught my eye when I was there so bought it to give a try seeing as I ran of my Illamasqua foundation.

Over the past few years NYX has been very popular in the UK and I have noticed they have also opened more counters up and down the country 'woohoo'.  Nyx is a cosmetics brand with lots of makeup from lipsticks, foundations and blushers. The brand is also super affordable including this foundation which was a purse friendly £6.

I love matte foundations so this sounded like the perfect product for me, it also comes in 10 different shades and I chose ivory. This foundation is described as being oil free and water based, all those things are a big tick in what I want because I have combination skin. The packaging may not be amazing or out of the box but for the price of the foundation I am not complaining.

Application and how long it lasts
It was almost like water, almost runny so I would recommend applying it to the back of the hand first and using small amounts at a time on a foundation brush. Applying it to the skin was simple as it was almost like a cream, so you imagine it didn't take much blending too to make it look evenly applied.

Once my foundation was applied it lasted very well teamed up with my primer and makeup setting spray. I have some dry skin on my nose and just above my eyebrow and it was a little drying their but nothing major to complain at. 

I love this foundation and I usually wear it on days I just want to wear  a natural makeup look with lipstick, foundation, mascara and eyeliner. I love the fact its almost a cream texture, it makes applying foundation that extra bit easier for me.

  1. Since Boots has started to stock NYX in stores, I am always on a hunt of new products to try out from the range. I guess this will be the next one.

  2. This sounds like a great product. I've not tried NYX makeup yet though, must change that.
