This foundation from NYX is really good for you who has oily skin. I have very dry skin, so it didn’t work so well for me. It is a full coverage foundation which I loved. So I would recommend it if you have oily skin, and want full coverage.

This foundation will give you a matte finish , it’s very lightweight on your skin but that is because it doesn’t give the best coverage . Personally I find it becomes patchy on my skin throughout the day , however it doesn’t stop me using this product . I wear this in my school makeup and I get a lot of questions about what foundation I wear . If you like a light - medium coverage and you don’t want to splash out on your cash , try this . ( it oxidises on the skin so definitely get the colour matched!!)NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation

This was the first time I tried a matte foundation as I thought it might work better and long lasting but it was very thin coverage and even the more I tried to apply it still made me feel bare and exposed. I’m sorry but not my cup of tea.

I was a little afraid when I bought this product as it is a matte finish and I have super dry skin, this foundation is amazing. Full coverage. Not tacky. It doesn’t stick to my dry patches. For £6 it is well worth a try. Thank you NYX once again for being amazing.

Review for: Nude more...
I like this foundation because it doesn’t have high coverage which I don’t need because my skin doesn’t get a lot of acne and I like a natural finish look to my makeup. However I thought it would be more effective in its matte effect since I have a combination skin and my forehead gets really oily during the day. When I use the foundation for a long time, my forehead gets really oily and maybe it’s not ideal for my skin type.

I love this foundation it blends very well and really easy to apply it is very full coverage and leaves the face looking flawless the only thing I would suggest is using a primer with this as I feel it does excentuate the pores but it’s very affordable

Review for: Ivory more...
This is an okay foundation. It apples fairly well and stays looking nice for about three hours on my oily skin. I got the shade ivory which isn’t a fantastic match- but the foundation was only £6 so that makes it worth it!

NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation greta product for those working with a budget and beginners with makeup. also good for people with oily or combination skin, not so much for people with dry skin like me as can look a little dry and cakey. easy to apply and a little goes a long way. i would recommend, just not great for me personally.

The nyx stay matte but not flat foundations n SMF04 is a good foundation up as it blends easily but it is quite thick and I preferred more runny but it depends what you like . Mine is more yellow based but that brobably matches some skin tones 💗

i think its not my best foundation but according to its price its good, it has medium coverage with matte finish , it's light on the skin but some times i feel it doesn't blend well at my dry spots and makes it looks caked  but after using it with good moisturizer primer its good for me , sometimes i need to shake it before use as the formula is not mixed well which is a little bit weird

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?
