This came as a wonder product. The stick can be used as a full coverage foundation, a concealer as well as for contouring or highlighting. The greatest benefit I found is that it blends really well into my skin and does not look cakey or unnatural. Highly recommended

NYX Professional Makeup Mineral Stick Foundation is a superb foundation. It comes in a convenient stick format that can be used as a foundation, a highlighter, and also a contouring stick. So many things with just one product. It gives a medium to high coverage. It neither clogs pores or look cakey. Stick foundations are extremely easy to apply. It’s always better to blend them with a wet beauty blender or a foundation brush. NYX Professional Makeup Mineral Stick Foundation is available in 14 shades. So if you are dark, medium fair you are sure to find your shades in this foundation. I like it when brands offer more shades because it’s unfair when you have only 3 shades in a brand and girls come in so many colors. This NYX mineral stick Foundation comes in a glossy black packaging which is travel friendly. It comes in a roll-up plastic stick and has a nice creamy texture.    If you are into contouring – use two shades, one that matches your skin and one that is little darker to contour your face. The stick format makes it very easy to contour your face. Make sure to set it with a loose powder once you have applied this foundation. If you have imperfections on your skin, make sure to use concealer. Since this has a creamy formula it gives a glowing finish and not a matte finish. It stays good for 4-5 hours and you might require reapplying after that. More than using it as a foundation I like to use this as a contouring product because it is so easy to apply and blend. I use it on the sides of my face and under the cheek bones and jawline for that perfect blended contour. I totally recommend it for all newbies to contouring.

Cosmetics Forever Ultra HD Stick Foundation is a potential hoodwink for almost 33% of the cost. There are 15 conceals accessible and MSF01 Fair gave off an impression of being the lightest and my best match. Similarly, as with all NYX items, the establishment contains a cold-bloodedness free recipe and comes in their mark lustrous dark bundling. The establishment is obviously very travel-accommodating and ideal for flying into your tote to apply in a hurry. The equation is rich which makes it staggeringly simple to mix, be that as it may, it's so velvety it nearly feels a touch excessively sleek and I ended up utilizing a horrendous parcel of their HD Finishing Powder to keep it set up and prevent it from sinking into wrinkles. The establishment is buildable; however, I for one have to utilize a ton of item so as to get my ideal inclusion, as it's shockingly sheer. I sincerely think the Mineral Stick makes a superior shaping item than the establishment. Next time I going to purchase a darker shade and use it to add definition to my face as opposed to utilizing it as an all over the base item. I'll keep on plunging into this item until it's done (which I don't think will take long) as it's in no way, shape or forms a horrendous item. It's anything but difficult to apply, a fantasy to mix and its surface is exceptionally delicate, and I’m simply searching for a base item with higher inclusion and a somewhat progressively matte completion. This is the main stick establishment I've utilized so I didn't know what's in store. I simply adore it. I have reasonable skin with cool undercurrents and the shade porcelain is an ideal match. It's durable and buildable yet can be sheared out for light inclusion. A little goes far. I have dry skin in the winter months and it doesn't adhere to my dry patches. I'm ready to put on a rock solid lotion and preliminary previously without stressing over the establishment sliding off. It stays put pleasantly for the duration of the day. I've attempted numerous establishments high and low end thus far this one is my top pick.

For long I had been toying with the idea of buying a Stick foundation and one fine day I came across NYX Professional Makeup Mineral Stick Foundation. I quickly checked for online reviews and asked a few of my friends who are beauticians and who use cosmetics very often. I got very good reviews and thought of buying it immediately. Also the fact that stick foundations are easy to apply, easy to carry, spill proof makes it a must buy and must have for your cosmetic collection. NYX Mineral Stick Foundation is a 3 in 1 foundation and can be used as a foundation, a highlighter and for contouring. What else can you ask for in such a lovely product. The foundation blends very well will the skin and gives the skin an even tone. I have a combination skin and it works really well and stays on for almost 5-6 hours. It is easy to aapply and spread evenly on the skin. I generally use it with a compact or a face powder to give it a lasting look. It makes my face look naturally fresh for almost 6 hours after which I need to give it a light touch up. If you are looking at something which would not give you an overwhelming make up look but just a natural look, a look second to your skin then this would be the best buy. The packaging comes in a sleek black roll up stick which looks more or less like a fat lipstick case. Easy to use and travel friendly. It comes in 14 shades and there is a shade for every skin tone. A very good product and I would highly recommend this for those looking for a stick foundation which would highlight, contour and give your skin a natural finish look with a radiant glow and fresh feel.

Some of the products of NYX like eye brow pencil already made me fall for it . So I recently tried NYX Professional Makeup Mineral Foundation Stick, I was much satisfied with its use and it has replaced my daily use foundation .The feel is very good and it is the best foundation for me till date . NYX Foundation is a stick base foundation contains full of minerals which gives a natural look for the daily makeup. It blends so smooth in the skin and skin feels very light and does not make the face cakey . Just this one magic stick is enough to replaces the concellar , a highlighter and a contouring stick .The best part which I love the most is ,it gives the skin a natural skin -like finish which is not matte or sparkle or glowy. It is easy to apply and blends easily with a help of a good make up brush or sometimes I just use my fingers when im in a hurry and it was fine too.It's stays good for about 4-5 hours which is far better than my previous foundation which required a regular touch ups. Having a dry skin without using a moisturiser it makes the skin more dry, so I always apply my moisturizer before applying this foundation for best results .The smell is also mild and good which was the best of all Finally I have found the best foundation which suits for my everyday makeup .Very handy and travel friendly which is always available in my makeup pouch .Worth for the Money we spent . A must product for all the women who are looking for a daily use foundation that looks very natural on the skin. A single stick on daily use goes for about 2-3 months depending on the usage. I fully recommend NYX Professional Makeup Mineral Foundation Stick to everyone !!

It's been sometime since I used a stick Foundation. so when I got my eyes on this nyx mineral stick Foundation, I decided to go and purchase it. it comes in a wide range of 14 shades, so there is something for everyone. Nix describes this mineral stick Foundation as a versatile product which can be used as the foundation, as a contour or as a highlighter. I went ahead and got two shades, one matching my skin to use as a Foundation and one a shade darker to use as a contour. This mineral stick Foundation comes in a glossy black packaging which is sturdy and compact travel friendly. it is very easy to carry in your purse, it hardly takes up any space. it comes a rollup bullet form which is easy to use. this stick Foundation is very creamy and very very easy to blend. In fact one can easily blend it with their fingers. but you said does feel oily. it took me a lot of loose powder for it to set, which I just totally hate. as for the coverage yes it does give a good high coverage. but for someone like me who prefers a medium coverage it just becomes too much. maybe next time I will use it as a concealer and see if it works for me. in fact with the coverage it provides I am sure it will work good as a concealer. Also it doesn't give a Matte effect which is something i don't like. Worst part is the very next day nice will started breaking out. Irealised this super creamy formula is not for someone with oily skin like me. I better use it as a concealer. Now coming to the darker shade which I bought to be used as a contour. it works wonderfully and looks very natural. it blends very well even by using only the fingers. in fact it is better than most of the Other contouring products that I use. So I can easily say that this mineral stick Foundation by nyx didn't do much as a foundation for me but works wonderfully as a contour.

So so just recently I started contouring my face and I loved its effect. Contouring your face at the proper points gives such a nice shape to your face and and it looks so attractive if done properly. so I got a contour powder and I started contouring my face but then I realise that the powders are not that pigmented and you have to use a lot of powder for building up the contouring. But it looks so powdery and it doesn't look natural hence I I hated powders for contouring and started searching for other options that can be used instead of powders. So I so one of the youtubers using darker foundation for the contouring and specially a stick foundation as it's easy to apply easy to blend and it gives that proper LINE which you want for contouring your face. So I bought a darker shade of NYX Professional Makeup Mineral Stick Foundation. And I started using it as a contouring and I just loved its effect. It blends effortlessly into your skin it gives such a natural look not made up. also it's so easy to apply within seconds you just draw the line and blended with the brush or with your hands and you are good to go. Also it's very pigment red sore you just need a little amount it and and it stays for a longer time. The only con I found is its price for the amount you receive this very less amount in the stick. but again I use it as a contour so it will look go a long way I never used this foundation as a proper base so I cannot say about how it works as a base but if you're looking for a stick contouring cream contouring product I will definitely recommend this.

From long time back I was in a constant search of some easy to use foundation which can be used before make up. I did a lot of research on so many well-known brand products and finally reading so about NYX Professional Makeup Mineral Stick Foundation I thought of giving it a try. Post delivery I got so much of pigmentation on the face along with uneven and dark patches all over the face. I was feeling very upset because of this and was very hesitant to even step out of the house with such face. Finally my baby turned one and we kept a huge birthday party on this occasion. However my concern still remained the face and that’s when I started looking for a suitable foundation for myself. NYX Professional Makeup Mineral Stick Foundation certainly solved my issue of uneven skin tone. It gave me such a clearer and brighter look on the birthday party day that almost each and every one appreciated my looks and I received so many compliments too. This product has got a very versatile nature and hence can be used as a foundation, a highlighter, and a contouring stick. Since having a kid my make up kit used to be so messed up so I was looking for a one time solution which could not only contour my face but also give highlights to it. It evens out my skin so well and firmly settles into the fine lines giving a smooth texture all over the face. The best thin g which I like most about this product that it’s a roll-up plastic stick and very much convenient to carry. The application is very easy it is just that you have to select a right shade for your skin tone. It is available in a wider variety of 14 shades

Stick foundation comes in very handy when one doesn’t want to use a heavy makeup base. The three layered base comprising of concealer, foundation and compact forms a very thick layer on the face and eventually makes it look very cakey. On the other hand, if you use three in one stick foundation, it gives a good coverage as well as gives a very natural look. NYX professional makeup mineral stick is of very good quality. It gives very good coverage at the same time doesn’t give an artificial cakey look. It is a super quick way of giving a good coverage. It comes in a very sleek packaging of a black role on stick. My friend uses it regularly. Her skin is normal and she goes for regular parties. She uses it almost every day and showed me this foundation stick. I have seen her photographs and complimented her on her looks. She told me that she applies this only on her face and I couldn’t believe her until she showed it to me. Her face looks naturally radiant when she uses it and from her photographs, nobody can make out that she has applied anything on her face. She is blessed with very good skin and does not have any dark patches. She does not need to apply any thick base or heavy concealing. I tried it at the back of my hand and felt that it does not have a cakey feel and provides good moisturiser to the skin. It does not have that dry feeling either. It blends well into the skin and gives a natural glow. It comes in many shades which suits almost every skin tone. It is quite affordable given the fact that one does not need to buy a foundation, concealer and a compact separately.

NYX Professional Makeup Mineral Stick Foundation was made keeping lazy people like me in mind. This is a one stop solution for foundation, a highlighter, and a contouring stick. All three in one black stick. Finding your skin tone match might not be a task. You do a have a variety here. The stick gives you a smooth finish and no visible lines or wrinkles after blending. I would say that it does not sit heavily on your skin or face like some other foundation sticks. This balances the tone throughout. It’s super smooth, comfortable to wear and lasts long. Lasts for about more than 3 to 4 hours for sure. And as long as your are not sweating it out. It balances my uneven skin tone. The dark areas near the nose curve, under eye and the chin circle. These have always been my pain areas. But I was glad that this black stick was working on me. The packing is sleek and nice. Good appeal factor, but some where I did feel that the quantity was not sufficient. A little more would have been great. Easy to hold and draw. Once drawn it’s easy to spread using either a brush or a blender. I am comfortable with my wonder sponge blender. This is the one thing that I really like about the product. It’s very or extremely easy to use. Any one who has never used a stick as a foundation or a highlighter does not have to learn before use. They just can pick it up and draw. Definitely travel friendly. Carry it where ever. Its light weight, travel friendly, blends easily, can be applied easily, looks great, affordable, does what 3 products do in one time in one stick, what more could one want. If you still don’t own it, go get it!!

I think NYX Professional Makeup Mineral Stick Foundation was made for people like me who are super lazy.

The packaging is sleek. It comes in a glossy black roll-up stick, like a giant lipstick. It is easy to use and very portable. The intensity of the coverage is totally up to the user.

I love NYX Professional Makeup Mineral Stick Foundation as a contouring stick but not as a foundation (unfortunately). I have tried it as a foundation, but it wasn’t my cup of tea. The shade didn’t suit my undertone accurately. I started using it as a highlighter and it works great!

I’ve been using this product for a month now, and it really has become a part of my essential, go-to makeup. I use Porcelain and Caramel shades now for highlighting and contouring respectively, and they’re amazing. One of the things I like about this stick foundation is how easy it is to apply and blend. Both brush and blender work pretty well for me.

It also has a smooth finish and no visible lines after a soft blending session. I would say that it gives a dewy look, too. It feels light enough and doesn’t sit heavily on my skin.

Evens out skin tone

CONS

Inadequate amount for the price

May settle into fine lines


I’m so glad I decided to try this one out. I have combination skin and haven’t always had the best luck with foundations. I bought it keeping in mind that I could always switch back to MAC Longwear Foundation if NYX doesn’t work out, but I haven’t changed my mind yet. It’s super smooth, comfortable to wear and lasts long. It balances my uneven skin tone, and this kind of thing is rare for me. Just to make sure that the foundation doesn’t oxidize too soon on my oily areas, I use a setting powder. I’ll definitely buy it again.

The NYX Professional Makeup Mineral Stick Foundation is definitely not for acne prone skin. It immediately gave me breakouts after my initial usage. It has medium coverage, and to hide my blemishes, I had to build up the coverage quite a bit. This product isn’t as effective as I had hoped. I’m disappointed with this particular foundation stick.

Creamy texture

CONS

Not for oily skin

Does not last long

Heavy weight


As much as I acknowledge the goodness of this foundation stick, it just isn’t for me. I have very oily skin, so it doesn’t work well for me. I like the texture of the foundation and how easy it is to apply. For a few hours (mostly 2 to 3 hours) after using it, everything looks okay. But my face feels really sticky after a while, and it seeps into my pores. It is honestly is a nightmare for me. My skins look sweaty and feel clammy. So, I’m not going back to this one.
