NYX TOTAL CONTROL DROP FOUNDATION


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.



BEFORE & AFTER


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!
