Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Matte Foundation EVER!!! I'm obsessed with this foundation. In the past, I have used matte foundation and found that it actually highlights my flaws. It would settle into my skin and make it appear dry and just not pretty, and I (luckily) have a very nice complexion so that's saying a lot. Well I bought Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation in Ivory, and I actually think it may be the best liquid foundation I've ever used. This foundation provides full coverage AND gives you a BOMB matte appearance without looking "flat" or dull. Thank you, Nyx, for this magical creation. PS I have VERY fair skin and Ivory matches me perfect. Also, pair with Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation for a PERFECT, flawless matte look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Matte But Not Flat Deep Dark So I recieved my purchase about two weeks ago and I am completely wowed by the product. For my deep complexion I usually buy foundations with a purple undertone but NYX Deep Dark Matte But Not Flat has a beige undertone and I love it! This is the first time I have worn full coverage foundation(I usually go for the natural look) and with this product a little goes a long way. The only con is that I have really oily skin so I have to apply powder throughout the day to combat the shine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have this in Caramel and I can't believe all the negative reviews. My skin has huge pores and is combination and acne prone and this is a great alternative to my more expensive brand Cover FX. Yes my nose was oily after a couple of hours but come-on the foundation cost 7.50$ and if you have oil problems I'm sure you have blotting papers, like I do. Easily fixed! I found it to have great staying power. I used it with, moisturizer, NYX pore filler primer, applied it with cheap-o ELF foundation brush, and set it with Be Nye powder in Banana. It stayed all day for me till I took it off and had no problems other than a shiny nose and in 90 degree weather I was expecting that. I will be ordering more.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from There are a few things wrong with this. First of all, you would think that if you're an ivory in the powder, you'd also be an ivory in the liquid foundation. WRONG. The powder in Ivory is still a bit orange on me but the liquid foundation in ivory is WHITE. the color is so wrong. Also, it goes on like water. You really have to cake it to get the "full coverage" it claims to have on the bottom. The whole point of this is to "stay matte", but you still need powder if you don't want to be shiny. This is not a good product. If you need foundation I recommend you just pay a regular amount for a good foundation, this is not even worth the cheap price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Color matching is difficult.... I have light-medium skin tone with either neutral or beige undertones. I ordered this twice in two different colors and keep getting very orange toned foundation. The colors showing on the "swatches" are NOT what color you get. I just received the Warm Beige and it is LITERALLY spray-tan orange. I couldn't make it work if I wanted to try... I also ordered the Nude and that too was orange. If you are looking for a MATTE finish, this is absolutely not matte. It's a very greasy/dewy look and smears easily even with pressed powder and multiple application techniques. I am trying very hard to like this, so I'm exchanging this last foundation and hopefully getting the correct color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I am happy with this product. I needed new foundation, but didn't have the money to buy my usual brand at Sephora. I love NYX's makeup, so I tried this due to the reasonable price. I actually like it a lot. I am fair skinned, so I got Ivory. It goes on well for me and stays on well. I have normal skin, though, so I wouldn't know if it would work well for someone with oily or dry skin. I also apply powder over it to set it, which I am sure helps it stay on better. I will probably still buy the more expensive kind I usually do at Sephora when I am financially able to, but this is a good substitute.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from After applying an oil free moisturizer,letting it set and then applying this foundation, my skin looked flawless. I have freckles, wrinkles and some broken capillaries which were covered quite good. I like full coverage but don't like an unnatural mask look and this foundation is nice and looks great in photos because there isn't sunscreen. I'll usually use it at night or for photoshoots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought in a lighter shade and use this as my under eye concealer seriously does not budge or crease.No setting powder needed. It has a matte finish which means no shiny or greasy look. I have combo/oily skin and it wasn't dry for me. I would probably stay away if you have dry skin the matte finish would not look good. Gonna get another tube for my everyday foundation
