”I purchased this foundation deciding to try something new, and I am so glad that I did. These drops are marvelous! They apply really easily, and they feel so lightweight on my skin. This foundation blends very easily, and you can add more drops where you would like more coverage. My skin looks flawless, almost airbrushed when applied. I have received many compliments on this product, and I suggest that everyone tries this formula. It is definitely worth your time and money.”

Lightweight it is ✨

I love this foundation because It feels lightweight. Perfect for everyday use and casual look or office look. I also love how small it can be it's a nice deal if you're deciding to bring this wherever you go or a makeuo junkie like me 💞 The bottle is also glass and frosted that's why it's worth a penny 💞 The foundation itself is. very buildable but take note that it sets fast so make sure to blend it faster on your face ✨💞

Well, I tried a lot foundations already. Probably not the best foundation for me. I prefer the Matte but not Flat one. I'm between satisfied and not satisfied. Medium coverage only. Not buildable. Its watery. Powder matte feels. Pricey for a small bottle. Its really small. You should get it on sale. I believe NYX is always on sale on BeautyMNL. Nice packaging though.

Convenient and adjustable :)

I have this in Pale, Deep Rich and Golden Honey. I find the drop system really convenient (and hygienic :p) because I can control the shade depending on the state of my tan. I even use the lightest and darkest shades I have as adjusters for my other foundations, or sometimes, even to highlight and contour, and they work beautifully.

It has a rather thin consistency, which I think makes it ideal for people who like to customize foundations. It does set faster than other liquid or cream foundations, though, so if you use it in its pure form, you have to apply and blend it out a little faster. I, however, like to thin it out more with moisturizer or facial oil whenever I use it, since I like my foundation to still appear like skin.

I prefer using a stippling brush to apply foundation, and I find that it works well with this type of formula. Coverage is definitely buildable. It feels lightweight on my skin as well, especially when mixed with a drop or two of facial oil. 13ml of a drugstore brand may seem a little scant for the price, since most similarly-priced foundations have at least 30ml, but the pros have trumped the cons for me. Will probably get Medium Olive someplace else if it doesn’t restock here soon :)

Nyx just won my heart again!

This is the best foundation I have tried so far. It's water based so it doesn't feel too sticky on your face. It also has a good coverage, I could use this without a concealer. It's also very blendable, no need for brushes or beauty blenders. The dropper is also helpful in controlling how much product you want to put on your face. Plus, there are so much shades to choose from, so you won't have problems if you're morena, chinita or pale-skinned. I've been using this for a year already and I can't wait for my next purchase!

Steep learning curve to get that "total control"

This lineup of NYX foundations get my praise for its extensive selection of shades. While, by my own mistake, I got a shade that's not a complete match, I'm sure that if I had given myself more time, I would've found it. As it says in its marketing blurbs, the formula is buildable from medium to full coverage. My gripe however is how thin the formula is. It's the type of foundation that you have to apply first (if applied directly to the skin) before your eye makeup or else it might just run over your hard work. I have to use a makeup mixing palette and apply with a brush so that I won't waste product. Using a beauty blender is wasteful, but it can help even out foundation that's already been applied to skin. I take two stars off because of how much adjustments I have to make to make it work, and I know I have better options out there.

This is Nice!

Nirecommend to sakin ng friend ko kasi sabi nya maganda daw yung coverage and oo nga maganda sya. Oily yung skin ko pero may konting dry areas and okay sya for both oily and dry. Hindi ako nagiging oily after a while and hindi din dumidikit sa dry area ko yung foundation or namumuo. I like this!
