I bought this product as a cheap alternative to my beloved Benefit Hello Oxygen in Honey, I'm so money. Tip: A little goes a long way. The product smoothes evenly and provides good full coverage for uneven skin tone or if I have a pale face in the winter.

It is an foundation really esay to apply and it stays on for the whole day.
It matches my skin tone perfectly eventhough it isn't too heavy looking on my face.
But,what a pitty, it is not perfect when it comes to concealing all of the blemishes.

I LOVE THIS FOUNDATION! I currently wear this foundation and the coverage does well for me. It’s a medium coverage and blends well. Im an oily skinned person and there has been no cons about this foundation. I always stock up on nyx foundation.

This foundation stay true to its name. It's just like the loreal pro matte foundation. The package and consistency is the exact same. It's also a lightweight foundation. Yes I would buy it again just because it has great coverage and it's matte.

Giving this foundation a 4/5 instead of a 5/5 is hard for me because of how much I absolutely love it! There's one little flaw that was enough to knock off a star though :( This NYX line is the ONLY brand I've ever tried that has matched my skin tone perfectly. They have sooo many different options for all shades of melanin -- I love it. Along with the tone I have matching me perfectly, it feels pretty great as well. Not too light, not too heavy. I would call it a medium coverage, and I think it's perfect for everyday wear. HOWEVER, it does not last all day. (I am willing to admit that I do not use it with a primer and/or setting spray, so that could easily be a large contributing factor). Overall, the product is amazing and extremely affordable for only $7.50. I may just need to invest in a good-quality primer & setting spray!

Review for: Nude more...
A great natural option, especially for younger girls (high school and college). It was the first foundation I consistently used in college, and was mattifying without looking flat, just as the name says! The price point is PERFECT and the bottle will last a while. I would say if you have wrinkles it will settle in the lines, which is why I recommend it for fairly premature skin.

I love this foundation it’s a great full coverage foundation but it does seem a little bit cakey and it’s very thick in my opinion and it kind of clogs up my pores but it is definitely worth it in the long run whenever you need some coverage

The truth is that I only use this foundation, when it is something natural, because I do not feel it to be a full coverage, you can handle the coverage but I feel like it would look like cake face! matte finish, I would not buy it again.

I've tried many NYX Cosmetics products but the reviews on this one are not very good. Has anyone tried it yet? Is it really a mattifying foundation? How good is the coverage? Does it become cakey? Does it need a mattifying primer?
