I absolutely love the NYX Professional Makeup Total Control Drop Foundation! Being an Asian woman in my mid-30s, I have developed hyperpigmentation spots on both sides of my cheeks. I need a foundation with above average coverage To cover these spots, so I am very picky when it comes to products I apply on my face.

I really don’t have anything bad to say about this product. It saves me the trouble of using a concealer separately. I have pretty oily skin, and it isn’t a problem with this foundation. Three to four drops of it on my hyperpigmented spots is all it takes to cover them up completely. I prefer to use a brush to blend it out, which also saves me time, especially because my daily routine is kind of hectic.

Another thing I like about the Total Control Drop Foundation is the variety of shades to choose from. Within the 30 shades available, it has a lot of options for generic/common skin tones. I’m lucky enough to be able to use the Vanilla shade without any issues.

Thought the packaging is very convenient for application, the dropper can get a little messy. The foundation gets collected on the dropper and there is a high chance of wasting it.

Despite that, I will recommend this foundation to anyone who is looking for a natural finish look. It works really well in that aspect.

Beautiful finish

Runny conmsistency


If you want to buy the NYX Professional Makeup Total Control Drop Foundation, it’d be wise to go to the stores and find your perfect match before ordering it online. I ordered the shade Deep Sable hoping it would perfectly match my skin tone, but I should have gone for Mocha. It’s a little bit lighter than I expected, but I can make it work somehow, seeing as it’s not that far off from my actual shade.

I have been using this foundation on a daily basis to class for two weeks now, and I must say, it really lasts all day. I don’t really have any blemishes or anything, so one to two drops is usually enough for me. I just love the fact that it evens out my skin tone with this soft, dewy finish. I would recommend this to friends and family any day.

Settles into fine lines


I’ve always had acne problems, and I still have lots of blemishes and scars from it. I had hoped that the NYX Professional Makeup Total Control Drop Foundation would finally be what I needed. Despite the instructions on the box, three to four drops do not really cover up my super prominent red blemishes. I still use my concealer to really hide them. But, with 6-7 drops and lots of blending, it does the job. But the problem with it is that after applying so many drops, it settles into my fine lines.

I have a combination skin type, so I have a mixed review for this NYX Professional Makeup Total Control Drop Foundation. My T-zone is very oily, and the rest of my face is dry, and it really shows. After about 10 hours, the initially smooth and soft look on my face completely changes. The T-zone becomes super oily, while my cheeks and my chin look patchy. I try to moisturize the dry parts and powder the oily areas once in a while even it out. Overall, it’s an okay product. It doesn’t meet my expectations. The effect does not last as long as I want it to.
