Hello my pumpkins and welcome back!
Today I am reviewing NYX’s drop foundation and the brush that goes with it, focusing more on the foundation, of course!
Before diving into this review, I just wanted to apologize for my absence, I haven’t been active on wordpress, not been liking or commenting on any of your posts because I am in Spain and I don’t always have access to wifi. Moreover, the trip has been hectic, we’ve been going from one city to another with no rest whatsoever!
This foundation comes in a transparent glass bottle and has a dropper to apply the foundation, which I think is very cool. On the front of the bottle, there’s written the name of the foundation and brand in French and English and the amount of products this glass bottle contains. In the back, the ingredients as well as additional information about where it was made is written. By the way, the writings are in 3D and some letters have already started to fade away, which sucks!
The packaging feels and looks very fancy and high-end. I like the dropper because it is cleaner and it allows you to control the amount of foundation you put on your face [one drop = sheer, two drops = medium, three drops =full-coverage]. I also like the fact that the bottle is kind of transparent [matte] because that way I can see the shade I got.
So this foundation retails for 14$ and is available in 24 shades which I think is great for a drugstore brand but only contains 13ml of products. Are you serious? that’s like nothing. Regular foundation should contain at least 30ml of products! I am pretty disappointed in that matter.
This foundation has a velvet/matte finish and like I previously said, is buildable. Therefore, you can easily choose the kind of coverage you want without having to buy 3 different foundations!
I personally, loved the finish of this foundation but not with the brush it comes with [number 22].
I hated how this foundation looked with that brush, my skin looked patchy, old and the foundation did not apply evenly and smoothly. Nevertheless, with a beauty blender, the finish looked amazing and it evenly covered my discoloration and acne scars. Furthermore, the foundation is very long-lasting and doesn’t look cakey at the end of the day.
By the way, the foundation comes out very liquidy but as soon as you blend it in, it dries to a beautiful velvet finish and according to LeaHD [lebanese beauty blogger] this foundation is the dupe for the Georgia Armani luminous silk foundation.
HOW I USE IT
If you want to use it with the brush, you simply have to drop the foundation directly into the brush then blend it on your skin but like I said, I didn’t like this method.
What I do is that I apply three drops on my face [one on my left cheek, one on my right cheek and one on my forehead] then I blend everything in with a damp beauty blender. If I want a fuller coverage, I add three more drops!
I love the finish and packaging of this foundation so I will definitely re-purchase this product and I definitely encourage you to buy it but the only downside is that there’s only 13ml of products, why?
That’s it for today. If you found this post to be interesting/useful, don’t forget to give it a ‘like’ and to follow my blog.
