NYX: Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation

Happy Thursday, everyone!
One more day until the weekend, so hang on tight. :D


Today, I'm going to be reviewing my NYX liquid foundation. 
I got it from the NYX booth at IMATS along with my concealer jar and my cream blush. 
I must say, NYX is probably one of my favorite makeup brands ever.

Oh oh oh, 3 more months till IMATS!!! Who's excited? 


Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation
$7.00

New Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation provides full coverage of mineral enriched matte finish. The oil-free and water-based formula is perfect for in the studio or all day long!

• OIL FREE
• WATER BASED
• FULL COVERAGE
• MINERAL ENRICHED
• MATTE FINISH


I got it in the shade, SMF05 Soft Beige.
My NYX concealer is in the CJ04 Beige so it matches my foundation fairly well.
I usually hate putting on foundation because it tends to be heavy on my skin, however, this particular one is really light
It spreads very easily. I use a sponge because I feel like I can control it more compared to using a foundation brush. 
It has a medium to heavy coverage.
It doesn't clump nor crease
It gives my face a matte finish -- no shine, no grease.
After application, I usually set it with my 020 Revlon PhotoReady powder and it gives me a flawless look.

I am seriously in love with this foundation!!! 
I'm going to have to stock up on them next IMATS. 

What's your current foundation? Have you tried this NYX Liquid Foundation? How did you like it?

  3. Would be nice if you posted a photo of you wearing this foundation, or at least a swatch. But it does sound like a really good foundation that I can wear too because I like to keep my skin light and sheer.

  7. I don't use foundation myself, I just dab a little concealer in places that I need it. However, this one sounds great! :)

  8. I've never tried NYX makeup at all :o For makeup, I usually try to go natural or mineral when I can. Right now I switch between Dior & Pur Mineral depending on the day and how I feel. :)
