Today I’m reviewing the new Total Control Drop Foundation from Nyx. Here’s what it says on the website:
From sheer to full, your ideal coverage is just drops away with our new Total Control Drop Foundation! Fine-tune this velvety, matte foundation with the included dropper. Simply adjust the number of drops until you create the look you’re feelin’ today. Want more coverage? Add more drops! Buff expertly using the TOTAL CONTROL DROP FOUNDATION BRUSH for a seriously smooth finish
Available in 24 different shades – ranging from pale to deep espresso with warm, neutral and cool undertones. I chose to test out porcelain (neutral undertones), the third lightest shade in the range.
The foundation is super liquidy, and you can choose the level of coverage – in the instructions it says to use 2 or more drops for light, 3 or more for medium, and four or more drops for full coverage.
I’ve tried applying with my Wayne Goss foundation brush, with my Real Techniques blending sponge, and with my fingers. I prefer applying with fingers and then blending with my brush, due to how watery the foundation is and being better able to control the application that way.
The finish really does feel velvety and smooth, but not super flat matte when applied on the sheerer side – hopefully that makes sense. I find that a really flat matte finish makes me look completely dead. Heavier application will cake up on dry areas, so I wouldn’t recommend this foundation if you have super dry skin and want full coverage. I have mostly normal and slightly dry skin right now.
Have you tried this foundation? Did you like it?
