This foundation actually works very well! It lasts me all day and doesn’t make my face feel or look “caked”. It blended very easily all over my face as if I wasn’t even wearing foundation!

This is great for its price point. Less than $10 for a very beautiful foundation with a matte finish. Don’t need a lot of product. I applied with a damp beauty blender. Starts to fade eventually through day on its own unless set.

I have been using this foundation for a little over a year and I love it. It works great for my oily/combo skin. And after a while it has a natural shine to it which still looks great.

Ewww, don’t buy this foundation, it settle in your fine lines and it’s gone in 1 or 2 hours, oily and it doesn’t have any coverage to it, it’s horrible , don’t buy this please, you don’t want to experience that nightmare.

When you have combination oily skin with dry patches, it is very difficult to find the right foundation. I’m liking the look and feel I get when using the Nyx Stay Matte Not Flat liquid foundation. It is a lightweight, oil free, medium to full coverage with a Matte finish!

Bought the lightest shade to blend with my urban decay all nighter foundation that oxides a lot. They blend very well and for that purpose I'm satisfied. But this product alone it terrible, doesn't work for anyone with large pores or impurities as it cracks up around pimples and wont cover pores, it's not at all build-able as others have said.

Really love this foundation. My favorite out of all 4 of the ones I own. My undertone is neutral but this foundations undertone is red. I love the way it looks against my skin tone. Still looks good after hours of wear. Little bit goes a long way. Even though it doesn’t have a pump the squeeze bottle makes getting it out convenient.

I mix the two colors because cocoa is a bit too light and deep dark is a bit too dark. It has awesome full coverage which is my favorite. I use it on every occasion that I can.

I tried this the first time and didnt look good on my skin. After hydrating, and winter set in, I tried this product again and liked it a lot. If you have dry skin, I would condition first, then apply with a beauty blender, and set with the setting spray. Skin looks flawless and had a lot of compliments on it.

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?
