Primer/ Corrector -NYX Professional Makeup -Can't Stop Won't Stop Matte Primer

on 8/16/2018 11:43:00 AM

After deciding to purchase the NYX Professional Makeup's Can't Stop Won't Stop Foundation, I thought I would also give the NYX Can't Stop Won't Stop Matte Primer a try with this. I must say that the NYX Can't Stop Won't Stop Matte Primer is without a doubt the thickest primer I've ever used. This stuff is THICK!! Because it is so thick when you apply it this does not agree with many layers of other products. It can cause moisturizer or sunscreen underneath to pill. Where this product works okay is with the new NYX Can't Stop Won't Stop Foundation. This didn't work well with other foundations I tried such as the Bare Minerals BarePro Foundation or the Boscia BB Cream. If you don't use many layers or moisturizer underneath the primer this does work better. I do love the price though. If you have oilier or normal skin and are going to try the NYX Can't Stop Won't Stop Foundation this is worth trying out in conjunction with it. My video review can be seen here:

Liquid -NYX Professional Makeup -Can't Stop Won't Stop Foundation

on 8/16/2018 11:15:00 AM

With 45 different shades to choose from and an affordable price, I really wanted to love the new NYX Professional Makeup Can't Stop Won't Stop Foundation. It is also fragrance and alcohol free, which made me want to love it even more. To be honest though, this foundation was just okay. I can't see myself ever reaching for it over my other favorite foundations. I have a favorite long wear foundation, a favorite SPF foundation, a favorite full coverage foundation, and a favorite casual day foundation. The NYX Can't Stop Won't Stop Foundation doesn't fit in to any of those. For my this foundation just ended up looking cakey and unnatural. If you have dry skin I recommend you moisturize and use a hydrating primer. If you have normal or oily skin you probably won't have as much issues as I did. I would say this is medium coverage and is transfer resisitant. If you have deeper skin tones, normal/ oily skin, and few fine lines I would recommend checking this out- it just wasn't for me, but I love that they have 45 shades to choose from!!!

Primer/ Corrector -NYX Professional Makeup -HYDRA TOUCH PRIMER

on 8/16/2018 10:08:00 AM


Tested this once, and am holding off until drier months to retest. I have combo skin, but lean shiny/oily.

This is a more dewy primer (moisturizing) and since it's summer/humid when I tested it, it made me a bit more greasy than I'd have liked, so I'm leaving it at a three lippie until I can test it when my skin is drier. It's very lightweight - I almost thought this was a dupe for the Smashbox primerizer (which I love) but it's not. That I can use right now in the summer and it doesn't make me as dewy as this does. It didn't make my makeup cake or anything, nor is it scented, so I think it's a decent primer if you are looking for more moisture. Did not break me out the day I tried it and it also contains Niacinamide, which is a great bonus for your skin. I think the price is good - and it's over an ounce.

Primer/ Corrector -NYX Professional Makeup -Hydra Touch Oil Primer

on 8/16/2018 10:04:00 AM


I bought this and never tried it out - returned it immediately. Not because it didn' work - but because I have sensitive skin and this is very scented. It's not perfumed, but I think it's the almond oil that gives it a nice sweet scent. I liked it - but I hesitate putting anything scented on my skin, so if you are sensitive, be aware.

I think the vial and dropper were really neat, so I liked the packaging and it's glass and feels very heavy.

Liquid -NYX Professional Makeup -Can't Stop Won't Stop Full Coverage Foundation

on 8/15/2018 3:44:00 PM


The new Nyx Can't Stop Won't Stop foundation is great for matte lovers! I watched the Alissa Ashley tutorial for this foundaiton, and she mentioned that she has dry skin and uses a dewy primer with this matte foundation and it works great.

I read a comparison list of ingredients of the new Nyx foundation to the L'oreal Pro-matte 24H foundation, and they are virtually identical. I love the pro-matte, but it's a little pricey ($20+) in my area for a drugstore foundation. Once I read they were pretty much identical, I found the Nyx Can't Stop Won't Stop on sale for $15 CAD (regularly $18.50). I chose the shade porcelain (103) and it's quite good! It's nice that they have a shade even lighter, and 45 shades is an impressive range, even if my local stores don't carry every shade.

I like the coverage, I don't usually go for a full coverage and I'd say this is medium buildable. Applies and blends nicely, plays well with my other makeup products, isn't cakey, doesn't slide during the day. Still looks great at the end of an 8 hour day!

Very pleased with this one!
