REVIEW: NYX Stay Matte but Not Flat Liquid Foundation Nude

Two days ago I've just shared you some products of NYX and today I'm gonna give a quick review of NYX Stay Matte but Not Flat Foundation. Sorry if the pictures are the same like the previous post. I will update it as soon as I take other photos. Let's just jump to the product.

This product comes with tube in 1.18 fl. oz or 35 ml. It's a little bit more compares to other typical foundation which is 30ml. At first, I thought this foundation is small and I didn't thought it has a little more ml in it. But it is, the tube is quite small. I have mine in shade nude.

As I told in previous post, I have a light skin with neutral undertone. This foundation is for light skin and warm/golden undertone. So, this foundation too yellow on me to be honest. It doesn't matter since my other foundation has a pink undertone. I can mix both foundation to get a neutral undertone.

The consistency of this foundation is liquid, as you can tell. The thing I don't like about is the product gets easy since it comes in a tube. If you don't store it well or probably you unintendedly shake the product, when you open it, you will find that the product is leaked. Better to store it upside down, I would say.

This foundation is for oily/oily-combination skin. My skin condition right now is normal. So, this product is a little bit dry on my skin. It looks a little cakey if I look closer to the mirror even after I apply moisturizer. I guess, this foundation is best mixed with a steam cream or oil to make it look matte no more. You know that Korean beauty tips to make a glowy look by mixing foundation with a steam cream or oil. However, if you have a normal to oily skin, this foundation will work really great to hold your oil and make your skin stay matte.

Once you squeeze the product on hand, you need to apply it immediately to your face since this foundation gets easily dry.

Apart from the non-match undertone and all those non-match things that happen on my skin, this foundation is quite great. The formula is very light yet building the medium coverage, which is great. Even after you apply 2 or 3 layers, it doesn't feel heavy at all.

Here is my overall review:
+ Good for oily skin
+ Light
+ Medium Coverage
- Matte
- Get easily leaked
- Get easily dried once you squeeze


This foundation is for light beige skin with golden/warm undertone

If you find it too hard to choose the right shade, you may visit cause they mention a clear shade with its undertone in every shade they have. However, make sure you know your skin color and its undertone (click here to know more).

I used to have an oily skin and right now my skin is normal. When I got this foundation, my skin was still oily, and (thank God) I have a normal skin now, but the thing is this foundation doesn't match my skin. That's why I give the score only 3. However, this foundation is actually great. I'm still using it right now by mixing it with my cool-toned foundation plus oil so that it doesn't dry my skin.

So, that's all for this review, I hope you find it helpful!
