I have a combination skin type, and I am always in search of base that is prevents my skin from looking oily and sweaty, water based products that gives a matte look is always my choice. I recently got a chance to try this Matte finish water based foundation by NYX Professional. What really impressed me was, that its water based and gives a beautiful matte finished texture to my skin. This gives full coverage and blends well in to my skin, keeping my skin hydrated yet makes it look oil free and sweat free. Also after using this on daily basis, I have realised that this just sits beautifully on your skin for good 5 to 6 hours, irrespective of weather you are indoor or out in the sun. I take a very little product apply dots on my well prepped up skin (with a sunblock followed by primer), and then just blend it in with help of a makeup brush or beauty blender, followed by a loose setting powder to set it in. I must say this really blends well and glides beautifully on your skin. If you have a dry or normal skin type make sure to apply a nourishing moisturiser before wearing this. This covers my uneven patches and leaves my skin look flawless and hides all imperfections. Further more this water based foundation is available in 30 shades, you can opt for your closest match, having a wheatish Indian skin tone I am in the shade SMF08 (medium skin tone with beige under tone). Talking about the packaging, this comes in a see through tube packaging, which makes It very convenient to use and extremely travel friendly. If you have a oily skin and you like Matte finish foundation, you are definitely going to love this.

Another average foundation!
3.2/5

PROS

Lightweight

Easy to blend

Medium coverage

Matte

CONS

Does not control oil

Not long-lasting

Melts in the sun


The name of this product is so fancy - NYX Professional Makeup Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation! I was instantly attracted to the name. And with the description it has, it sounded like the perfect match for my oily, acne-prone skin. I got the shade Warm Beige to match my skin tone. It matched pretty well.

This product comes in a very convenient tube packaging. The quantity is also pretty good for the price it comes at. The consistency of the product is just about perfect; it’s not very watery or very thick. To apply the product, I take some of it on the back of the hand, warm it up a bit and dot it all over my face and neck. To blend it, I use my flat foundation brush, and a stippling brush to finish off. I top it off with my concealer and loose powder.

Everything stays good for about two hours, and then my face decides to produce oil, and my foundation goes with the flow (pun intended). It feels like the foundation starts melting when I’m out in the sun. The staying power of this foundation is barely 3 hours, post which this matte foundation turns dewy, and my face appears more oily than what it looks like otherwise.

On days when I’m only sitting under the AC, the foundation works better. It stays longer and does not melt. But, as the description says, it can’t be worn everywhere. This is like any other foundation, no reason why it’s a must buy. Any other foundation, probably at lesser cost will perform similar or even better than this one in some cases.

Perfectly matte foundation
3.5/5

PROS

Doesn’t feel heavy

Perfect consistency

CONS

Transfers

Setting powder is a must


I have never come across an entirely matte foundation. This foundation has a perfect consistency. It blends so well, almost feels like skin. It does not highlight pores or fine lines. It’s magical how it disappears and still offer medium coverage. Also, it very lightweight, doesn’t feel heavy and allows my skin to breathe.

However, setting the foundation with loose mattifying powder is a must. This foundation tends to get greasy after a few hours and transfers. This can be fixed by using compact powder. It stays on for about 5 to 6 hours, which for my oily skin is pretty good.

What skin type does it even suit?
1/5

PROS

Affordable

Good consistency

Great shade range

CONS

Not long-lasting

Not suitable for dry/oily skin

Settles into fine lines and maximizes pores


My sister owns this product, and she has oily skin. She loves the consistency, but apparently, for her skin type, the foundation doesn’t last very long. I got the same foundation hoping it will suit me better because I have dry skin. But, no!

It settles into fine lines, accentuates dry patches on the face and looks weirdly cakey. No other foundation has looked so weird on my face. I tried using a heavy moisture base with primer, but the results just didn’t improve. I really wonder what skin type this foundation really suits.

Good coverage but not matte
2.5/5

PROS

Adequate quantity for the price

CONS

Not matte


I am a fan of matte foundations. Everything I buy has to be matte because anything else just makes me feel oily. I got this foundation because of its claim of being entirely matte. But, it’s not matte.

There is nothing extraordinary about this foundation. The consistency is right, stay power is average, and it does get dewy and cakey after a few hours. Setting powder helps but I wouldn’t recommend this product. It’s just okayish!
