Am I the only one who noticed the smell??? I even had to ask an Ulta employee if it was the foundation’s normal smell or if it had gone bad or something. She smelled it and was going to ask someone else because we both thought it smelled too bad to want to have on our faces.
So I had been using this for about 2 years. Bought 4-6 bottles of the stuff because it was the only foundation to match my skin tone. However, recently, I’ve noticed that this product is overpriced and just nasty. I have combination skin and this tends to get either very oily or very dry in the skin. It can’t make up it’s mind. Oh and God forbid you drop this stuff anywhere. It is oily, sticky and just gross. I don’t know how I’ve putting this on my face for years!!!
I just completely scrapped my original review of this product because I’ve done such a 180 on it.
I have NYX Total Control Drop Foundation in Porcelain. About a year ago, I wrote a review of this product saying that it would really only be good for people with oily skin (I have dry skin).
I changed my mind about that, because this foundation also works really well if you like to use a moisturizer and/or a creamy SPF before you apply makeup, and in my experience (which keep in mind I have only ever used drugstore foundations as far as I can recall), that is something few foundations do well.
In the winter, I need to apply a moisturizer, SPF, and often marula oil, before makeup. A lot of foundations in my experience do not do well layered on top of all of this. They slide all over the place even with a setting spray and end up streaky and uneven. Even in the summer when I usually only put SPF on before foundation, because my skin is more naturally moisturized, foundation can get streaky and sit on top of my skin.
So that’s where the Total Control Drop foundation really excels. Because of it’s uber light, watery texture, even on top of layers of moisturizer and the miscellaneous goo I apply every AM, it is able to meld into my skin in a way thicker foundations cannot. It stays put, no streaks whatsoever.
Yes there are more moisturizing foundations and foundations with SPF in them, but the name of this product is clever because what it really offers is control. I get to decide what products I layer first based on how much moisture I need, and then the foundation just seems to play well with whatever I do. I don’t have to switch between a lighter foundation in the summer and a more moisturizing, dewy one in the winter. Whatever I put on my skin first determines how matte or dewy I look. It’s simply versatile.
I should also add that the other day I swatched my foundations on my inner arm to test oxidation, and Total Control only seemed to get a tiny bit darker than the shade in the bottle. No extra orange or yellow tones.
If you want to be somewhat reliant on your foundation to give you moisture or a dewy finish, this foundation is not for you. If you need something higher coverage, this is not for you either. This foundation is light coverage and while it’s somewhat buildable, I have found that it just doesn’t look as good with extra layers (one lippie off for that). The trade off for the lighter coverage is that this does look really natural and fresh with a single layer – my skin but better.
But if you have oily skin, or if you have dry skin but have issues with foundations not playing well with whatever moisturizers or sunscreen you apply first, this might be a good bet.
The color options can be overwhelming since there’s so many so I make sure to visit a NYX store to purchase this foundation. This is definitely my HG cruelty free drugstore foundation. It’s a little runny/watery so you have to make sure to blend. My other go to foundation is Too Faced Born This Way and I wish NARS was cruelty free because I love their sheer glow foundation.
As a rule I don’t really like full coverage foundation but I guess this is the exception to that rule. First of all I actually have a color match in this line, so that is great. The shade range is fairly inclusive and does have very light and very dark shades available. Pale is a pretty much perfect match for me, the best I have ever found. It’s the exact same color as my neck. It covers up the red / pink tones in my face perfectly. I have very well behaved skin that’s in really good condition, I don’t really have any issues aside from the red / pink tones and my only concern is preventative anti-aging stuff. The Nyx website describes the finish as velvety matte… I have combo skin, so somewhat oily in places and normal in other places. Nothing matte is ever completely matte on me, which I like because I don’t personally care for a super matte and dry look. This gives me something between a soft natural matte and a satin finish. Way heavier and more matte than I generally go for but it doesn’t look or feel heavy! I also love that as I wear it it doesn’t break down or begin to look cakey and disgusting or do that separating thing that just looks so completely grotesque. The way my skin is I get a little shiny (that’s more glowy than greasy) after you know five or six hours of wearing it… but it doesn’t look bad, I just maybe need a little touch up if I want to or not because it really doesn’t look terrible like some foundations do. Texture wise it’s a very thin and runny. I don’t mind that and prefer it to a dry texture, because I find it easier to blend. I always apply this with a damp beauty blender and I take a lot of time blending because it’s such heavy coverage for me, it has to be perfect. So yeah this is not a quick application foundation at least in the way I use it. I’ve also noticed how nice it looks in different sorts of lighting, I’ve definitely been horrified at how other foundations look under artificial or office lights and fortunately this one isn’t super ugly looking and mask like in those circumstances… Not to say it’s undetectable, it’s not… You definitely look like your wearing makeup but not in a bad way. As of now this is my go-to when I want flawless looking made up skin, I’m more of a sheer coverage BB cream type of girl but I really really really love this product and can’t overstate how excited I am to actually have a color match!
This is the third NXY foundation formulation I’ve tried and I won’t purchase another one. For a high street brand their products are becoming more and more pricey. For this you receive only 20ml making the price ml for ml almost comparable with higher end brands such as Clinique and Ester Lauder.
The product is very liquidy , feels like a silicone base with pigment. It sticks to every single dry patch and shows up flakes I didn’t know I had. It doesn’t stay put and looks a mess after a couple of hours. The coverage is average and doesn’t build well.
On the plus side there is an extensive shade range.
I got this on sale for a very good price ($5, woo!) in the shade Pale. For reference, I use foundation shades L’oreal True Match W1 and MAC Studio Fix NC10. I find both of those a tad too dark on me though. I’m on the fence about this foundation still. I have worn it twice so far. It is actually a very good shade match for me. It is strange to actually match my neck so well for a change! My face has gotten darker (redder?) as I’ve gotten older. I’ve been experimenting with how it looks in different lighting…It looks great in natural light but the color looks off when using flash photography. I don’t know why but I guess it doesn’t matter.
Some things I don’t like about are it will stick to and accentuate dry patches. Another thing is my T-zone gets sooooo oooooily! I don’t look this oily with my other foundations. I tried it with a translucent finishing powder today and I still look very shiny. Maybe I need more powder? I’m not sure who this will work best for. Probably not dry skin or very oily skin. Maybe normal skinned folks… haha
I may just mix this with my other foundations to lighten them since this makes me so darn oily. I would like to find something with a similar shade but with a better formula for my skin.
Edit: This settled into my forehead lines by the end of the night. It also rubbed off various places. Meh.
Edit again: This seems to sink into the large pores near my nose! It looks weird up close. It possibly even breaks me out a little too, but I can’t know that for sure because I get pimples for seemingly no reason anyway. Blehhhh.
I really love how this foundation disappears into my skin. It’s applies really well with my fingertips, it feels like there’s nothing on my skin, and the color match I get from 05/Light is amazing (note: I normally end up with a brand’s lightest shade in a “neutral” tone, but there were three or four shades that were lighter than me, in warm, neutral, and cool tones.
This product dries down super-fast, so I only recommend applying it in sections with your fingers, or dotting it onto an area before quickly blending with a damp beauty blender. I cannot see a brush working for this at all, and if you put it directly onto a sponge, it’ll all get sucked into it–there’s just no volume to this stuff. But because, there’s no real “base” to this, it really looks like skin. The finish when it first dries is sort of matte, though since it’s so thin, it becomes dewy fairly quickly. Also, since it’s so thin, it is not particularly long-wearing; you will probably need to blot/powder/touch-up in the afternoon. I’ve taken to powdering my t-zone with this.
I have seen a lot of reviews of this where users complain it isn’t full-coverage enough. As someone who is not a fan of full-coverage, I found that this certainly hits the full-coverage mark for me if I apply a few more drops, but perhaps the point at which I start wondering if I should just wash it off and start over is the point at which full-coverage makeup lovers think they’re just getting started. I kind of wish this foundation were a little lighter coverage than it is–it’s so fast drying that the two drops they recommend for light coverage has a learning curve to get spread around before it sets. I have found that an extra little dot of this stuff does a good job of covering blemishes, and I can use a tiny bit extra of this around my eyes as a natural-looking alternate to concealer (no, I don’t have heavy-duty dark circles.)
Smell: I haven’t noticed any, so whatever smell it has before applying evaporates. Packaging: the dropper applicator is not my favorite. I think it might have been better to have a squeezable bottle than the separate eyedropper. It’s a bit awkward to handle, it needs two hands, and I have dripped quite a bit of this foundation onto my shirts.
Overall, I am happy with this because of how it looks on my skin. It just looks so lovely! I’m hooked.
Okay, so I know this has been around for a while and I’ve been tempted to buy it for quite some time due to the amount of raving reviews but I usually stay away from any foundation when I hear the word matte… I’ve always been more of a Dewy girl. When I saw it on sale for $7,99 I decided to finally go for it. First, buying online I took the chance and ordered Porcelain because this is the shade that I get in most foundations I buy and it was a perfect match. I was very intrigued with the dropper /buildable concept. I definitely NEVER go full coverage so I figured despite the bottle being very small it should last a while since I only go light to medium coverage. The one Con is that it took quite a few more drops just to achieve light coverage than the product states. For application I took a different route than normal. Usually I apply strictly with beauty blender but with this, I dropped the foundation directly to my face and used one of the Oval brushes to blend it out. These brushes are nice and dense, soft, don’t absorb product and produce an air brush looking finish which made it perfect for such a watery formula. Thankfully, after you start blending the foundation thickens up a bit. I finished by just using my beauty blender to make sure the product was not just sitting on top of my face and to soak up any potentially extra product. You want to wait until foundation is completely dry before using setting powder (and don’t apply until your primer is completely dry as well). So, my final thoughts is that I was kind of blown away. The coverage was light but made my complexion look flawless and natural. Though it states it’s a matte finish… It’s not the chalky looking full blown matte look of other foundations. I’d call it more like a natural finish. And after applying the rest of my makeup, particularly my highlighter I was even more in love with this product. This Pic was taken about 3 hrs after initial application with no touchups and it looks the same as it did right after applying. As much as this foundation impressed me.. The only reason for not repurchasing is that when I do use actual foundations… I’m super picky and they really have to look and feel beyond amazing
Love it. I was so tired of thick foundations that felt heavy during the day. I just need something to tone down my redness. This product feels like nothing on my face, I feel like my skin can breathe and it also doesn’t look patchy. It makes my skin look blurred, airbrushes and healthy. Plus that Nyx is cruelty free, this foundation ticks all the boxes for me.
