Review for: Ivory more...
I bought this foundation because of the shade- I like to find and try new pale yellow toned foundations. I'm around NC10 with yellow/olive undertones, somewhere between NARS SG Siberia and Gobi. "Ivory" looked a bit orangey at first, but once I blended it into my skin (using beauty blender) it looked really pretty and "natural". The coverage is light to medium.
On its own this foundation can look cakey and accentuate dry areas of my skin. It took me a while to figure out how to make it look best because at first I didn't like it at all. However, it's not long lasting- by the end of the day it wore off my nose where I wear glasses (as most foundations). 

It's a decent product and the shade is almost perfect for me- definitely not the best foundation I've used but I don't regret my purchase. Wouldn't repurchase it though.

Review for: Creamy Natural more...
This is my go to drug store foundation because its cruelty free and super affordable! The colour range is good as well and this is a great colour match for my skin. The formula is quite thick which I like for nights out when I want a fuller coverage however for day time wear I do tend to mix it with the nyx total control drops to thin it out slightly and allow for slightly easier blending. I think this is best worked into the skin with a brush before smoothing out with a sponge and it can be hard work to spread and blend using just a sponge. The coverage is medium to full and doesn't slip or cake throughout the day. I will say though that its not REALLY matte. Its certainly not dewy but I've tried other matte foundations that have been a lot more matte than this one and my skin isn't oily apart from later on through the day on my tzone. Over all the foundation is amazing for such a low price!

Review for: Natural more...
This is a great foundation, bearing in mind the low price. My skin is usually slightly dry but this foundation doesn't cake up in spite of the matte finish. It's easy to apply with a brush or sponge. I haven't quite found the right shade but it does look good nonetheless once I have added a little bronzer. It doesn't last all day unfortunately. Nevertheless, I recommend this foundation and will repurchase.

@nyxarabia STAY MATTE BUT NOT FLAT foundation ✨ (medium beige ) ;
Its for oily skin, full coverage 👌🏼 I love it 💗 ❌ when I apply it with a wet beauty blender the foundation clump and it shows some dots on it ( if you face like this just tell me what did you do) 😬 but if I apply with brush it is perfect 👏🏻 the price after sale 36 dhs 💸 ❌ I don't recommend it ☺️ #nyx #nyxarabia #beauty #cosmetic #foundation #matte #makeup #MUA .

Review for: Ivory, Porcelain, Alabaster more...
I tried 3 products from these foundation in color “Ivory”, “Alabaster” and “Porcelain”. It’s easy to apply, good product for its price. For my extremely white skin “Ivory” and “Alabaster” suits good, but “Porcelain” is too dark for my skin tone.
Suitable for oily and combination skin, but skin will be oily no matter what after some hours.
It’s necessary to use base after and then this product. I recommend this product xx

Review for: Warm Beige more...
My go to foundation. In the past ive used all kinds of products, MAC, Estee Lauder, Dior, Maybelline, and Revlon. None compare to this. 
I have combination skin and this sits beautifully. Its not drying even though its matte. Around my nose is a massive problem area for foundationd but this doesnt cake up around there. Ive found that since using this I dont have very many breakouts and its not heavy on my face. Absolute bargain too at £7!

I love this product so much ! Unfortunately I can't seem to find it in stores where I live anymore :( but it works amazingly for my oily skin type. One thing that I find odd (but fine once you get used to it) is that the shade looks WAY darker in the bottle than it does once blended out on your face. My friend gave me hers cause she's darker than I am & she thought she got the right shade but it was too light for her. I thought it would be like 10 shades darker than I am, but it was the perfect shade 😂 so weird. But other than that, GREAT foundation.

Review for: Porcelain more...
This has been specifically suited to my oily skin and skin tone and is amazing for keeping my make up looking fresh and lasting the whole day , a great variety of shades , the lady who worked for NYX and matched my skin was so lovely and took her time to match me and give me useful information about the product also showing me the best way to apply, amazing for a drugstore foundation, gives me full coverage of my acne , a must have!

Review for: Light Beige more...
I bought this yesterday and I am wearing it today, it's so good and honestly I've never used a foundation that was under £10 and really good! Goes really smooth super fast and dries fast too, doesn't enlarge pores or how greasy which I adore, well worth buying I would completely recommend this product, you'll see the difference automatically in your old foundation too

Review for: Creamy Natural more...
My absolute favourite foundation! I have tried so many foundations from high-end to drugstore and this has remained my go-to foundation. I was so surprised at how amazing it is considering how cheap it is. The coverage is incredible (matches and even betters concealer foundations I’ve used before) but without being too cakey or thick. It’s perfect for people with acne. It doesn’t quite stay matte all day (but does stay matte longer than a lot of foundations) but that can be forgiven due to how fantastic it is in every other way. If staying matte is your priority you just need a good setting powder (e.l.f. High Definition Powder) and matte setting spray (Urban Decay De-slick Oil Control Makeup Setting Spray) and you’ll be good to go all day. I love that NYX have such a wide range of colours for every skin tone, you never have to worry about finding your exact match with this foundation.

Ive tried NYX stay matte but not flat, boots no7 beautifully matte and many MANY other small drugstore brands but they all seperate on my skin after a few hours. (I live in the uk and only would prefare to stay away from the more expensive brands, i also only use cruelty free cosmetics!) Thanks!! NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation
