I must admit that I do not trust a lot of base products from the drugstore especially for my skintone and skin type. That was until I heard about the Nyx Total Control Drop Foundation. I went to my nearest Clicks and shade matched myself (soo proud of myself lol) to the shade Mocha. I have been using this foundation for some time now and I can confidently say that it is the best foundation that I have ever worn! It comes in a lovely frosted glass bottle that has a dropper applicator which I like. This foundation provides a sheer to full coverage depending on the number of drops of it that you apply onto your face. I use about 6 drops of it when I apply it with a brush and about 8 when I apply it with a beauty sponge. I was worried that I would go through this foundation too quickly because of the amounts of drops that I would have to use in order to build the coverage up to a medium to full coverage but there is still quite a lot of it left. This foundation gives me instant coverage and I can just build it up a bit more in the areas that I need it. It is soo lightweight and feels like nothing on the skin. I adore it’s velvet texture and how smoothing it is on the skin. It has a good lasting power and it wears really well throughout the day. I am mostly impressed by how mattifying it is, I do have to blot throughout the day but that is the same with other foundations that I have worn before. I do think that this foundation will suit all skin types because it is not a drying type of mattifying foundation.
People always give me compliments when I wear this foundation and some of them think that it is my actual skin and they don’t believe me when I tell them that it is not. This foundation is comparable to higher-end foundations and I am amazed by how affordable it is. The bottle can get a bit messy because the product gathers a bit on the rim of the bottle because of the dropper applicator but that is a small price to pay for how amazing this foundation looks on the skin. Please do yourself a favour and try it if you have not already. It comes in 30 shades and they have a good selection of dark shades which is amazing.
You did that Nyx, bravo!
