Note: I’ve only used this for like 2 weeks.
Also note: I have oily combination skin but nothing too greasy or overly excessive.
This foundation definitely isn’t full coverage so if you are looking for that skip this foundation. I think it is light to medium when you build it up. My nose breaks up foundation terribly and makes it look gross and almost dry when I put foundation on. This doesn’t make my nose look as bad as the wet n wild one did but not as good as the born this way foundation. I use this with a beauty blender and haven’t used it with a brush. My sister thinks it has a weird smell which is why she gave it to me but I don’t notice a weird smell. At first it may look like it does nothing in your skin but when you are done with your whole face and do another layer where needed, it looks really nice and dewy. It’s not too shiny or too drying on me. It’s really light weight and comparable to a fuller coverage BB cream. I would recommended this but it isn’t my favorite. I would buy it again but I want to try other products out next.

Review for: (6 Pack) NYX HD Foundation - Warm Sand more...
So although this is the foundation I use it for under-eye concealer to highlight because it it is a bit lighter then the foundation that I need. I have found that it works better with a stippling brush versus a beauty blender and that's just to help give it a flawless finish. I'm not a pro at makeup but I do know that I have to find what works for me and this brand has so many products that works for my skin tone especially with me having dry skin and hyperpigmentation.

I bought this cover up in a hurry when I was at the store once, wanted a coverage that reminded me of the tinted moisturizer I’d been using. I’d say this did a decent job. Would use again for summer time when I’m wanting a little less coverage.

I absolutely love this stuff! I applied a small amount before going to the beach on a very hot day and it didn’t melt off at all! I purchased it from ulta and the price was great only like $10. I love this and will definitely be buying again.

Review for: Soft Beige more...
So 3 stars until I try to shoot with this makeup. It seemed overpriced for the coverage it provided. Probably great for someone with blemish free skin. I know the hd factor is supposed to help skin look flawless for photo shoots which I still have yet to test out. However,it didn’t seem like it gave my skin an even appearance in regards to texture or color.. at the cost I would prefer a high end brand for not much more.NYX HD Studio Photogenic Foundation

Nyx Cosmetics has really come a long way in the community and I have a lot of respect them. I have oily skin, and always had problems with foundations breaking up or sliding. Not with the HD Professional foundation! It stays on like a dream!

Review for: (3 Pack) NYX HD Foundation - Warm Sand more...
I love using the most popular high end products when it comes to foundation. The rests are somehow compromising. I purchased this foundation long ago but never used it before. First a tart pore mini miser, then NYX HD Primer & then NYX HD foundation & set with Urban decay setting spray & then went on with the rest of my face's makeup. It stayed till 5/6 hours as it was. No cakey, no flakes -- nothing... was taken aback as i never expected it to work so wonderfully! Good! Wish it would stay longer.

Review for: (3 Pack) NYX HD Foundation - Warm Sand more...
I have the NYX HD Foundation but not a 3 pack, however, it is an awesome foundation.  I have been trying different foundations and concealers out, especially from less expensive brands and this foundation is in my top 5.  It's hard for me to choose because I try to use a foundation for my skin depending on weather, my skin that particular day, etc.  I would highly recommend this foundation.  It goes on well for me!

Love this foundation it's full coverage but gives you a feeling of a bb cream. It makes perfectly with skin. However, you still have to bake for normal time to keep foundation dry through out the day.

Review for: Natural more...
Even though this is not a mattifying foundation, it is great for us oily skin people. The color range isn’t terrible and I can always lighten or darken it up if need be. It’s not cakey and gives me just the right amount of coverage. It blends out perfectly with a damp beauty blender and just looks very natural on the skin. Has the most flawless finish out of all of the foundations that I’ve ever tried or used. My holy grail foundation.

I was on the market for a new under eye concealer, and so i was searching inline and looking at some youtube reviews. Unfortunately, I can't seem to decide between the Maybelline age rewind concealer, or this one. Maybe there is some other alternative I don't know of. Any advice would help. I have oily skin, and yellow undertones.
