Very good matte color, with a good long wear time! Use a beauty blender to get the most out of this product! Very good for oily skin, it will get rid of all the shine! Would definitely buy again!

I love this formula. I got two of them and I’ve used it all the way up. I would defiantly repurchase in the future. The overall brand is amazing it can’t do much wrong. It’s located at a lot of stores as well.

A little too match for my taste. Clings onto my drier problem areas and looks clumpy. Putting on a moisturizer first and then using setting powder tends to do the job.

I used this product for a while because I was hoping to perfect my blending skills but I felt like the liquid did not want to stay on my face. I thought if I bought a loose powder to apply over that it would help and it did somewhat. I would recommend this product for those who aren't experts at makeup like myself because it is a good price and its not a terrible product. I will say that if you have any fine lines or wrinkles then prepare for this makeup to settle in all those lines since it is a matte, although I never stayed matte with this product for very long either even though the makeup settled into my forehead lines every time!

This is a great drug store foundation. It blends well and lasts nicely. The only hiccup, is it oxidizes somewhat...so you have to plan ahead and work accordingly lol.

Super nice foundation! I would definitely use it again. It really does help your skin staying Matt and not oily. It has full coverage but is not cakey. Good on all types of skin. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a matte finish to their skin.

It's a good foundation with a good price. But I think would be better if look more natural and velvet. Besides, my skin is with oil so fast with this foundation..

My favorite liquid foundation! Good buildable coverage with a natural finish. I’ve tried a lot of foundations and at this price point this is the best you can get!

So nice. I highly highly recommend this brand. They knock it out of the ballpark each and every time. Extremely affordable and always a great useful purchase. They have always been a must for me. Everyone needs to know about this brand. Everything is so good.

For the record, I love ALL of NYX's products and think they're totally worth it. I always consider NYX as one of the highest quality brands and surpasses in expectations for their low prices. This product, however, is so so. it's not my favorite liquid foundation, but there's nothing bad about it, in my opinion. NYX offers a range of shades, the product is indeed matte and keeps for a few hours, however I'm just not crazy about it. i just think there are other drugstore makeup brands that have much higher quality liquid foundations for the same exact price.

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?
