Rated 1 out of 5 by from BRING TWIN CAKE BACK!!! I used to purchase the twin cake powder which was AMAZING! Best coverage comparable to MAC's studio fix...but this is a sad replacement I had to go with when I realized that the twin cake was no longer available! This is very extremely light to no seems to sit all powdery on the surface of your skin and even feels weird on the skin, I don't dig the silky strange smooth's too fake and has caused me to break out...I haven't broken out in years!!!! I need the twin cake powder back! SERIOUSLY! Lets all contact the company on this and demand they bring it back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Label Says It ALLLLLLLL! I was very happy using my NYX STAY MATTE NOT FLAT foundation in Chestnut for the last two months until I ran out. The issue is when I repurchased my compact I thought I was in for another 2 months of happiness. No, it was not to be. The exact same colour on the label but a totally different colour and texture inside. I sweat alot but with the first compact it didn't cause my makeup to melt off my face. I'm so disappointed I could cry beware of those small labels at the back. Do not purchase the NYX foundation with the small labels. As another reviewer has said the formulation is cheap. It melts, it is at least two shades lighter where as the chestnut ( with the large label) I purchased two months ago used to blend perfectly. NYX Cosmetics if you changed something change it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Closest Thing to MAC Studio Fix! I've been using Nyx Cosmetics for a while but hadn't tried any of the pressed powders or foundations until recently, mostly because I'm afraid of purchasing the wrong color. I read a review, stating that this was the closest thing to MAC's Studio Fix, which I use. I gave it a shot and am so glad that I did! I searched the closest shade to my (MAC NC20) shade and it's absolutely perfect! I recently purchased the foundation as well, which is a tad shade off but still usable. I would definitely recommend this product! The only downside is that the compact is not very deep so it has to be replaced often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This powder does the job and concealing and hiding shine. I think it's even better than MAC's foundation powder. The only down side is that the actual amount of compacted powder in the case is very thin. My compact lasted me about 2 months before I ran out, and I wouldn't even use it every day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grateful I found this at a local beauty supply and decided to order in another color for my legs. Appreciate the powder feature, pretty good coverage, and the color if VERY rich in tone. **The only thing is, when trying to wear a cover up for spots, or blemishes underneath, it can be tricky, as this foundation may seem clunky or even come out darker than the surrounding areas. So, coverage may be a little limited for extremely bad blemishes, so may need to be creative, or apply extra in those areas.] Overall, I'm grateful. And, you can of course always go over it with bronzer to take away some of the mattiness if you're not in a matte mood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have oily/combo skin and I bought this to set my liquid foundation. The trick I use is to buy a lighter color because once you sweat or get oily the powder will darken. This sets my face beautifully without shine and has a great matte finish. A little goes a long way don't put too much or you'll get cake face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best powder foundation When I found out my high-end powder foundation had an ingredient in it that was breaking me out horribly, I went on the hunt for new powder foundation. This foundation had no pore clogging ingredients and was the cheapest on my list, so I decided to try it first. SO GLAD I DID! THIS STUFF IS AWESOME! Better coverage than my high-end powder foundation with a luminous finish that looks like skin. And my skin is now totally breakout free. Absolutely love it! I hope NYX never stops making this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Full Coverage! I love this powder. It covers incredibly well without drying out the skin or looking cakey. I am EXTREMELY fair-skinned (I have only used two different brands of foundation because nothing matches my fair complexion) and Ivory actually matches me PERFECTLY. I could not believe how pretty my skin looked. I also use Nyx's CC Cream and Green Tea primer. Pair with Stay Matte But Not Flat foundation for a flawless matte look :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for everyday and more. I've had bad luck with powder foundations before, they usually end up looking cakey and rub off or just plain don't last all day. However, this one is great. I use it with a tinted moisturizer or BB cream for everyday coverage, and use it to set a full coverage foundation for photos or special occasions. It goes on smoothly with a matte finish and looks fresh, not chalky. My only issue is I did get a bit shiny as the day wore on, but it was nothing a little blotting paper or a light touch up couldn't handle. All in all, great product for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Medium Coverage. Matte Finish. I am probably one of the most oily people in the entire world. I often make the joke that you could fry an egg on my face at the end of a hot day. (gross, I know) so naturally I love all things matte. I have been using the Tarte foundation for years now but my finishing powder was becoming to expensive because after I blot and re-powder throughout the day I was going through one powder compact a month. Alas, I discovered this powder. It offers decent coverage on its own; not enough to cover my freckles entirely. But over a foundation it does pretty well and I can reapply all day long without looking cakey.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Matte Powder! I borrowed my sisters after she had bought it and I just fell in love right away. I just had to buy my own. I usually purchase the more expensive make up just because I break out easily, but this is amazing for being a cheap brand. It does exactly what it says and it does a great job at hiding my acne scars. The only thing is the oilyness of my face comes back after about 4 hours. Which isn't too bad, just dab on a little more and you're good to go again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stay Matte Foundation I love this stuff! Its been out of stock at every store for almost 6 months!!!!! Once I found it I had to double up! Great product. Will continue to buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Sad Day in Makeup I can't believe that a Best Seller would be discontinued but here we are. Stay Matte But Not Flat is one of the greats and I will never understand why it's no longer on the market. After reading several reviews of how great it is, I realized I'm not alone in my love for this awesome product. NYX I know you need to create new things to keep up with the times but why get rid of a best selling product? It was a life saver as well as a wallet saver when I found it several years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really loved this powder! It feels so light on your skin but at the same time does an amazing job of setting your foundation or concealer. It also works great to cover blemishes and redness all alone !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Disappointed a “best seller” is now disccontinued! I don’t understand how a top selling product has been narrowed down to only three available shades. I’ve used this powder for a couple of years and now have to find another product to replace it, which will likely break out my skin. The alternative NYX “can’t stop won’t stop” isn’t a great color match and is not a great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love this powder for my clients! It gives a flawless smooth finish without looking too cakey! Nutmeg #14 is great for medium-dark skin tones similar to NW45 or NC50 in MAC and is the one I use the most.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great smooth coverage I have combination skins that is oily in spots and flaky in others, so I've never been able to use a powder foundation until I found this one. Plus there are so many shades. I feel like with a liquid foundation, even oil free or mattifying formulas, I still feel oily or cakey and I never can find a match, color wise. I figured I would give this a shot because of the low price and now I love it! I stock up whenever I find a store that sells it because even some retailers that sell the brand don't carry this product. It's smooth and doesn't get flakey. I use a primer under it and it's practically flawless. Blush blends well over it, too. Great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I recently was at Ulta and needed a new powder. Now, I've tried everything to cover up blemishes, especially freckles...this is amazing! It sets well with mineral makeup or foundation for a perfect look. I even wear it alone to hide redness or bad skin days... amazing powder!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I found this powder to be so nice to use. I have had this product for a few months now and it has never failed me once. I have very dry skin and I use it to set my concealer under my eyes and anywhere else on my face. I find that it doesn't look flaky and it is so silky smooth to the touch. I am extremely pale and I have the shade "Nude". The one thing I don't like about it is how delicate the packaging is. I dropped it accidentally onto my carpeted room and the pot that holds the powder inside broke off the hinges completely. It still works but now I have to be extra careful when flipping it up to get the sponge kept underneath it. I also use the sponge it comes with to apply the powder and I think it's amazing at blending and is very durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Coverage and Finished Look This is the first time I've used the NYX Matte But Not Flat Powder. It did not disappoint! I needed something to go on after my liquid foundation to help set my makeup and not have it rub off on everything and also to give me a more finished look. This was perfect! I do a little spritz of the NYX setting spray after I apply this matte powder, and I'm totally pleased with the results. My makeup now looks more polished, and as the day wears on, it still looks good. I'm very pleased with this product and will definitely be ordering another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I received my powder foundation as a gift so I was a little scared to try it although I love NYX. It did not let me down! I tried it and loved it! The look it left was flawless. It Feels very light weight and smooth and it does the job! I Highly recommend. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from hands down one of the best mats I've ever laid my brushes on. Lots of humidity here and this mat still helps keep down the shine. Works great with the HD primer for long days <3

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have oily skin and wear this as a setting powder and also alone.It evens my skintone and feels good on too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is by far, the greatest powder to have graced my face. I have used VARIOUS powders, including quite a few of the high dollar ones, and they don't even come close to how awesome this stuff is. I put it over my liquid foundation and it makes me face flawless. I even REALLY like the applicator it comes with. It's good for patting the product on, so I don't even bother with my kabuki brush. So stop wasting your hard earned money, ladies! You can't beat this stuff!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My NYX 1st Love This was the 1st product I ever purchased & tried by NYX... The Powder has an amazing matte finish without looking overly powdery... I honestly can't believe the price point for a product that I love just as much if not more than my Makeup Forever Powder Foundation is SO cheap! That old saying "You get what you pay for" well, this is an exception to that motto! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very natural finish The foundation has a very natural/skin like finish if you put a decent light amount which is what I actually prefer. Of course you can build it up as well and still have it looking nice. I love how lightweight it is and how there's so many colors. The only downside to the product is that there's fall out when you dip your brush into the product it doesn't happen when you dip a wet sponge into it but I actually find a wet sponge to be lighter coverage than a brush which is ironic bc it said wet sponges provide heavier coverage. I'm really curious if the old formula is better. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What happened!!!!! Yall gotta bring this back. Sienna is my fav. I can't find it anywhere and its a must have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it I absolutely love this product I usually don't wear foundation because I think all the other ones make me look too cakey but this matches my skin perfectly it doesn't even look like I have any on :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even as a professional MUA I too struggle to find products that I'm comfortable with and that won't necessarily break the bank and won't break me out. I have very oily skin so I have to stick with powder foundations. I have used MAC's powder foundation and it was great but honestly NYX works a whole lot better and lasts longer for an all day wear! 5 stars! Visit my facebook fan page by searching "Cea Rade"
