HD Studio Photogenic Foundation is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Foundation! I never really had that many NYX products, so I decided to go to Ulta and buy a bunch of their products. I bought this foundation thinking it would be great for photos and film. It is pretty awesome! I am very pale (almost as white as paper) and the color Nude works perfectly with my skin! It has a light to medium coverage, so if you have problem skin, this foundation won't have a lot of coverage for you. The only problem I have with this foundation is that the packaging allows for the product to easily come out, which can be a problem at times

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great foundation I've used this foundation for years now. Very buildable coverage. Has smooth satin finish not too shiny but also not dry and flat. About the new packaging. I think it's an improvement. The pump packaging would crack and make a mess. I retail nyx in a salon. I have used this foundation on all ages. I especially love how smoothing it is on mature skin. I have had many clients ditch their expensive department store brand foundations and become loyal nyx HD foundation users.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So smelly Unusable. Ingredients did not say fragrance, so I thought I would be safe. ABout half of all NYX face products have 0 scent, this one was so smelly. I opened it up, put a tiny amount on the back of my hand to see coverage and smell it. Overwhelming. I let it dry down for 10 minutes, the patch on my hand was the size of a quarter. Still stinks. I waited a full 30 minutes and I could smell it from my hand, in my lap. I scrubbed it off with soap - still smelled. On my face I would be in a full migraine by then, so no way. Of course NYX is super classy and let me return with no hassles, but I was bummed. No one needs their face to smell. Ever.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh So this going to be lengthy and a little biased. I feel the product is the same as the one in the old packaging on me. I'm oily. I wanted this to be a dupe for the MUFE HD Foundation, it just isn't. The coverage is still fairly light-medium. I thought they'd up the coverage but it's the same to me, personally. I liked the old packaging A LOT better. I do think this was a step back and then they raised the price. Smh, not a good move NYX For now, I'm sticking to MUFE with HD foundation, sadly. I also wish they came in more shades with more undertones. NYX should catch up with the fact that there aren't just two undertones. I used shade sand beige. I'm usually an NC25-NC30 It was OK but not really yellow. I checked here an I guess that shade has beige undertones. I tried others and they're either too beige, too pink or too peach/orange. There needs to be more shades that are actually yellow/olive which I think most drugstore brands ignore. Most high end brands have more yellow in them which is great. I mean with most the population of the world being in Asia you'd think they'd have SOME shades to offer us.... Well I was born in America and most the other Asians I know have this issue so we usually use high end

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Foundation I've been using the HD Studio Photogenic Foundation for years. It feels light when I apply it, but gives coverage that makes my complexion appear flawless. It is a great foundation for me as I'm turning 60 this year.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dislike the change from pump to tube! Why the recent change from a pump to a squeeze tube? Plus it now costs more for way less product! Poor choice! BRING BACK THE PUMP VERSION!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Products at a Great Price!!! I became a fan of NYX products about 4 years ago when I bought the Baked Blush at my local CVS pharmacy in Miami, Florida. It was awesome quality and lasts forever!!! When it came time to buy more, I was not able to find the NYX products I wanted here in Pennsylvania, where I have since relocated. I found your website,and started ordering direct from you. I tried the Photogenic foundation, and I love it!! I have light skin, and I have a lot of problems finding the correct shade. The Foundation Finder really was helpful in finding the correct shade and type for me!
