NYX Total Cover Drop Foundation

October 5, 2017


Today I'm sharing with you a first impression of the newest foundation in my makeup collection - the NYX Cosmetics Total Control Drop Foundation. I was very intrigues after seeing this all over Instagram and YouTube, as I'm always on the look for a good budget-friendly foundation with a shade pale enough for my skin tone. NYX Total Control Drop Foundation comes in 24 different shades with 3 different undertones. I honestly have to say that I struggled to figure out which shade to go for, as there was 3 pale shades that were almost identical. After some swatching and decision-making I decided to go for the shade 03 Porcelain, which ended up being a perfect match. The foundation is supposed to be matte, but I found it to be semi-matte, letting the glow underneath peak through. The foundation has a thin watery consistancy, and is supposed to be buildable depending on how many drops you use. It comes with only 13 ML of product, which I think is crazy for the price point at 189 NOK. As the foundation is quite thin, you'll need many drops to cover your whole face and achieve a medium to full coverage, so I'd imagine running out of the foundation quickly.


I've tried this foundation two times now, and so far I'm impressed! The foundation meltes nicely into the skin, and leaves a natural and flawless finish which looks like skin. It didn't feel like I was wearing any foundation, neither did it look like it! To cover my whole face I used about three to four drops, and to further build up the coverage where I needed it, I used about two more drops. I have to say that this foundation isn't building up to be full coverage, at least not on my skin. I honestly don't mind that as I love a light foundation, and like to cover my pimples and spots with concealer, but if you're a full coverage gal, this might not be your new holy grail. The foundation lasted a good 8+ hours without touch-up, which is what I expect from a foundation. So far I'm really liking this foundation, and it will definitely be my new go-to foundation for an everyday natural makeup look!
