I bought this at my local Walgreens for a really affordable price and decided to try it out. I generally like matte foundations but I loved their NYX HD Photogenic Concealer Wand so much I decided to try it. It does oxidize a bit, but not too heavily. It’s not matte... which is always hard for me to cope with. If you like that shine, dewy look, than this is for you. I found it hard to build up, but I don’t think this foundation is meant for that, and that’s the only reason. Not a bad formula, just not my choice of finish. NYX HD Studio Photogenic Foundation

i'm honestly really disappointed by NYX's foundations - this is the second one i've tried and i'm just not a fan. people have told me my skin looks good which is nice but it definitely doesn't look good up close. sinks into the skin and pores, and i think it shows everything. i'm also breaking out pretty bad. it's frustrating though because the color is great!

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 used to love this foundation, but when they changed the packaging they must have changed the formula. The original was very buildable to full coverage and looked beautiful on your skin. This new Nyx doesn't sit right on my skin, making it appear that I have wonky texture.

This is THE BEST foundation I have ever tried!!!! I have combo to dry skin and it doesn’t cling to my dry patches! I have been using this foundation for years and highly recommend it to everyone. It matches my skin perfectly and really looks like my skin. It doesn’t get cakey at all even when I add layers. Buildable coverage. Applies best with a wet sponge but still looks beautiful when applied with a brush. I use the real techniques stippling brush. Buy it and use the ulta 3.50 off coupon to get it cheaper!

A medium to full buildable coverage drugstore foundation that is great for normal to dry skin. Typically lasts about 4-6 hours if set with a powder. Works best when used in conjunction with a primer. NYX HD Studio Photogenic Foundation #nyx #foundationmakeup

This foundation I don’t feel is worth the almost $20 bucks they retail for when I can use my maybelline fit me that was only $8 and it works much better. I’m going to give it a couple more shots but I definitely don’t think I’ll repurchase.

The coverage is good, though I expected a smoother finish from something called HD and purporting to be photogenic. The color selection is just OK for me. Even the palest shade was too dark for me, but that's not uncommon in my case.

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!
