My Review:

Oh My Myyy! Where do I even start? I absolutely loveeee this powder foundation. *drools* The packaging is quite simple, black in color with the product details written in white. However, I love the little heart under the NYX logo; it adds to the whole cuteness of the product.

The coverage is to die for, the texture is not too powdery and does not shed at all. It is super easy to work with. One swipe with a powder puff and you’re good to go.

This can be used as a finishing powder or in place of your regular liquid foundation, as the name suggests. The sheer coverage of this powder is flawless. It goes on smoothly without sitting heavy on your face. It feels light and looks natural, which in my case are the two most important points every makeup product should follow. It claims to be sweat and water resistant and the performance in this particular department is nice as well.

This product blends well but make sure you use a little quantity per application because this one is super pigmented! The staying power is great and will last for a good 4-5 hours after which you might need a touch up on your t-zone.

Conclusion : Nyx has lived up all its claims and definitely has hit a jackpot with this product. I can only speak of the pros of this product! However Sephora has hiked its rates but that’s not NYX’s fault so it’s okay and I don’t mind paying a little extra for the great quality provided by NYX.

    • The shade range is pretty cool!
      They have around 6 shades to choose from, so im pretty sure you’ll find one which matches your skintone exactly.

  1. You really make it appear really easy together with your presentation but I in finding this matter to be actually
    one thing which I feel I’d by no means understand.
    It sort of feels too complicated and extremely broad for me.
    I am taking a look forward in your subsequent submit, I’ll try to get the grasp
    of it!
