Review for: Deep Dark more...
I don’t dislike a lot of things but this foundation was a strong no for me. It did not make me matte at all from the beginning and when a couple of hours went by I looked like I just put Vaseline all over my face. I was upset because I had been so excited to get my hands on this because of the last shade. It was my perfect shade at that, matched my undertone as well but the formula did not work with my skin unfortunately.

I love my Nyx foundation. I love the finish. It’s buildable. I just love it. It oxidizes a bit, but besides that it’s great. It’s also a little olive, but that’s stated. Once you know how to make it work, it is well.

This is a really good full coverage foundation especially for the price. I love NYX products. It does leave places on my face a bit greasy after a few hours but overall it's great! Covers up blemish well.

Review for: Porcelain more...
This applies great at first, but it takes some effort to build up for more coverage and doesn’t last that long before getting cakey. It has a matte finish and is light-medium coverage on me since I have a lot of acne and scarring. You can build it up but it takes some fast work. I’d say it’s priced well and this is a good choice if you need something for a light/short day and don’t want to use a more expensive brand.

This is probably my favorite summer foundation. Very lightweight and covers everything. I really like that it keeps my skin soft and not sweaty in the summer. It’s incredibly long lasting. I’m going to buy a second shade for winter.

I really enjoy this foundation and would definitely recommend it! I even had it in a darker shade and would mix it with my foundation that was too dark and it did a great job mixing with it.

Review for: Porcelain more...
Sadly porcelain isn’t porcelain. I have very light skin and this is about a shade and a half too dark. If you have oily skin, this isn’t for you. Itll separate around your T zone. Now if you don’t have oily skin or acne this is great for you. Medium coverage.

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?
