Last time I was in Ulta I was looking through all of the Nyx Cosmetics, and decided to try out one of their foundations. 3 of them caught my eye and I had a hard time deciding which one to choose. I have not really read any reviews or seen any of these foundations talked about, so I went into buying one totally blind.
I decided to pick up the Invincible Fullest Covereage foundation (it was between this one, the stay matte not flat, or the hd one). I liked the idea of 'fullest coverage' because sheer foundations are not for me.
I got the shade light/pale, which I think was the 3rd or 4th lightest shade and it was a good match for my skin at the time when I was using self tanner.
My thoughts on this foundation
-I am not going to beat around the bush at all. This foundation was horrible. There's a few different reasons why I didn't like this, but I will get to that in a minute.
-I wore this 3 time before I decided I didn't like it. The first time, I thought it was just okay, I couldn't really put my finger on why I didn't like it much and just thought if I applied it differently it would work better (I used my F80 brush). The second day I used my Beauty Blender instead, and that worked better. I liked it better, and thought it was manageable. Buy the third day I finally figured out why I didn't like it.
-This was so greasy on my face and I felt like it wouldn't dry, even with setting powder on. I could touch my face a half hour later and then foundation would just wipe off.
-I also thought this stuff was really hard to blend. It was annoying trying to blend it in with a brush, but with a Beauty Blender it was a little better.
-It didn't necessarily look cakey, but when I was in natural light and looked in the mirror, it almost looked like the foundation was breaking up a little bit.
-I basically felt like a big greasy mess all day and couldn't wait to take it off the last time I wore it.
-I'm also suspecting this foundation was the cause of a breakout on my face.
-Regardless of all of the bad things about this, I DO think this was a full coverage foundation, it covered redness and blemishes very well.
-If you have dry skin, this might work for you. But if anyone has oily or combo skin then I would not recommend this at all.
-Bottom line, I hated this and I wouldn't waste your money on it! I'm now skeptical of trying out other Nyx foundations.
Have you tried this Nyx Invincible Foundation before? If so, let me know what you think of it in the comments!!
Omgosh! That foundation looks really thick! I'm not a fan of thick foundations especially in this scorching heat lol. Thanks for the review!ReplyDelete
Haha thanks Pilar! I don't mind if they are thick, as long as they aren't super greasy like this one lol!Delete
Ick Ick Ick! I have this in the lightest shade and have gone through many trials with it. It worked okay for the first few times and I thought I loved it, but then it separated on me and went really gross and thick. Formula issues or inconsistencies I think :( Either way, thanks for the honest review!ReplyDelete
I felt the same way Margo!! I'm glad I'm not the only one who dislikes that! I kind of had high hopes for it too. Thanks for your opinion on it as well!Delete
Thanks for the honest review. Now I know to stay away from this one.ReplyDelete
I definitely wouldn't recommend it!Delete
Feeling greasy is never a good thing!!! I've been there before Ashley. I require full coverage too and it can be tricky. Excellent review doll.ReplyDelete
Thanks Kim!! It's hard to find a nice full coverage foundation in the drugstore!Delete
This looks so gross! I've heard good things about the matte not flat foundation, so maybe try that one next if you're up to it. Thanks for the honest review!ReplyDelete
I totally wouldn't recommend this lol! Acutually the stay matte one was my first choice but then I saw this one. I should have went with my first instinct lol!Delete
