NYX HD Foundation Review

Hey Everyone!

     I am back! Sorry for being MIA for a week; it has been so hectic! I did a NYX haul about a week and a half ago, and it has given me a good amount of time to test out the products. I base my product reviews in different points depending on what type it is; foundation is typically about coverage and wear time. I also love a foundation that lets the natural glow of your skin still show without looking oily. I decided to try the NYX HD Foundation because I love the High Definition concept.

Price: This product is surprisingly inexpensive, it is typically priced at $15.00. I purchased this during Ulta's 20% off sale, so the final price was 8.99 for me.

Coverage: This is a great foundation with buildable coverage; one pump of this will give you medium coverage.

Application: I decided to use the MAC 188 brush to apply this. The 188 is a stippling brush, often referred to as the "skunk brush" because of it is a black brush tipped with white duo fiber bristles.

I purchased this shade in Soft Beige. It is really true to the color in the bottle once applied; but it did have a strong warm undertone to it. This worked out perfectly after it was blended in, but make sure to check out the rest of the shades if you have cooler undertones.

Packaging: I was very impressed with the packaging. The pump distributed just the right amount of product, and it is easy to travel with. My only complaint is it will show fingerprints, but a quick spritz of water will easily buff it away.

Amount: The NYX HD Foundation has 1.26 oz of product. Considering the higher end foundations that run around $23.00 per ounce, this comes in at an impressive $11.90 per ounce.

Would I purchase this again? Yes! The value of this foundation is amazing, and it really lives up to its claims. The texture is smooth and silky, and it is perfect to build up the coverage. If you want more of a glow to this, apply it with water. I always use water to get a fresh look to my foundation; tell me in the comments if you have ever tried this!

I am still working on the rest of my NYX reviews, keep an eye out for the rest! Make sure to check out my NYX haul, and take a look at my latest Halloween tutorial. Leave a comment below and tell me what your favorite foundation is, and feel free to request a post. Thanks for reading!

I want this foundation so much but sadly for me, the only way to get it is to order it online and I am so unsure about the shade :(

I know what you mean, picking out colors online is so tricky. This was a bit warm for my skintone, but they blend in pretty well. I usually do not buy foundations online, but the Ulta sale was too good to pass up!
