I love using the most popular high end products when it comes to foundation. The rests are somehow compromising. I purchased this foundation long ago but never used it before. First a tart pore minimiser, then NYX HD Primer & then NYX HD foundation & set with Urban decay setting spray & then went on with the rest of my face's makeup. It stayed till 5/6 hours as it was. No cakey, no flakes -- nothing... was taken aback as i never expected it to work so wonderfully! Good!

I hate this as a foundation. It might be better as a tinted moisturizer but I have never used one so I wouldn't be a good judge. It can't cover my red blotches is my main complaint. I have NO acne whatsoever, just red blotches and dark marks and it can't cover that either.

I wore a black dress the first time i wore this foundation and it tranferred all over & had to wash my dress to get it off. The second time i wore it was fine at the start but then at the the end of the day made all my dry spots look patchy. Not using it anymore

I did not like this foundation too much. I really wanted to, because I was looking for a foundation without SPF as I find SPF often dries out the skin and looks strange in photos. I don't really have anything positive to say about this foundation - it was super sheer, which to me, defeats the purpose of a foundation all together. To me, it seems more like a tinted moisturizer that barely covers anything. To make matters worse, the price is a bit much for a drugstore foundation. At $20 Canadian, I expected a lot more. It's going straight back to Target

Talc-free. Heavy coverage, but tends to be chalky and settles into fine lines and emphasizes dryness and wrinkles. I always use this with a BB cream or moisturizer, otherwise it's too drying. The finished look appears more matte and heavy. I wouldn't repurchase, since I prefer the more natural look that comes with BB creams.

This product, although not perfect, is magnificent for it's price. I use it in Warm Sand, and it fits my tanned skin perfectly. It has a lot of yellow/orange pigment (hence the name Warm Sand), and it covers all of the redness, broken vessels, and acnes on my face perfectly. I need a little bit of concealer to cover the very dark acne scar, but for the milder scars I don't need any concealer at all. It's not matte, a little bit dewy, and it doesn't make my oily face greasy like a frying pan (though I do have to touch up my face with powder every 2-3 hr). The smell is a tiny bit weird, but it's gone after a minute anyway.Pros:- Medium to heavy coverage, and it's buildable- No ashiness at all on my tan skin (which is hard to get from drugstore foundations)- Cheap price- Could stay up to 6-7 hr when you use it with a primer- Truly HD, you could take pictures with as much flash as you like- Hygienic since it comes with a pumpCons:- A little bit heavy on the face, unlike MUFE HD Foundation- Plastic packaging (but with the price, who am I to complain)Will I buy it again? Yes, this is definitely my fave drugstore foundation.

This foundation was a disappointment. All I can do is give this a huge NO. It made my skin oily, made my face feel heavy, and broke my face out. My mother uses this foundation and she seems to like it. If you are prone to acne, I would "nyx" this product. The concealer, however, is completely different!

I really didn't like this foundation. I bought it during Ulta's sale because I had seen photos of some people wearing it and it looked very nice. I have combination skin which will get a litle oily in the t-zone. It has a strange smell that I don't like and I could smell it on my face after. The coverage is just medium but still concealed nicely. I really liked how it made my skin look luminous but it didn't have good staying power at all! I felt like it had all wiped off around by t-zone by lunch time. I returned this foundation and I barely ever do that.

It makes me breakout!!!! First time i purchased it, it looks good on me. A good coverage for a drugstore product. BUT when i used as a daily foundation routine, slowly, acnes poppin out. I'm not recommend this to you who have a sensitive skin

What a disappointment! I always buy the NYX primers and I love them, but the foundation is horrible. It felt way too oily, I was looking for something nice and matte but this make my skin so shiny and gross looking. The coverage wasn't anything special either.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
