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!!
