NYX Professional Makeup Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation is a water based liquid foundation. It is enriched with mineral properties. It is a creamy texture that gets blended very easily with brush or with the makeup sponges. It gives a matte finishing look. It is not that great but okayish product. Good for begginers.

When I purchased this product, I expected a lot more than what it really is. Its cost is too much and inspire of the cost I bought it. May be sets well for indoors. But outside it is of no use. It is soft and gentle on the skin and very easy to use. But its effects are very clumsy, and it melts down in the sun. I have realized that this just sits beautifully on your skin for good 5 to 6 hours, irrespective of whether you are indoor or out in the sun. I take a very little product apply dots on my well prepped up skin 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 moisturizer before wearing this. The consistency of the product is just about perfect; it’s not very watery or very thick. 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.

Foundations are nowadays a very basic element of the make up kit. A makeup without foundation is nothing and it does not give a comfortable feeling because of the uneven tones, pimples and other markings. With foundation as the base it suits on very well. When I purchased this product I expected a lot more than what it really is. Its cost is too much and inspite of the cost I bought it. It does not suit oily skin and also it is not suitable to sensitive skin. May be sets well for indoors. But outside it is of no use. It is soft and gentle on the skin and very easy to use. But it’s effects are very clumsy and it melts down in the sun. May be it would suit dryskins very well. It doesn’t have sun protection but different shades are available for varried tones. I did not like this product. May be some dry skin people may prefer this product. I think may different products are available at a better price I think. I will not buy it again neither will I recommend this product to any one.

It is best for dry skin and is good for all skin types. It is better to be used with milk based cream and increase the glow. It is easy to blend and does not support sensitive skin at times. It is water based product and is best for coveting the skin effectively.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
