The NYX “Total Control Drop Foundation” comes in a unique pipette-style bottle. The bottle is see through, so it looks beige but is actually transparent and the dropper is made of black rubber. The design of the package is very sleek, especially that the inscriptions on the bottle are black and so the finishing is lustrous.
This foundation is available in 30 highly concentrated and pigmented shades.
The texture of this foundation is quite runny and thin. The product is very lightweight and can thus be applied easily as it glides smoothly on the skin.
This foundation does not have any particular smell.
When applied to the skin, the face looks almost airbrushed with blemishes and discoloration disappearing as soon as the foundation blends with the skin. The product wore nicely throughout an entire working day without needing to be retouched. Additionally, the lightweight texture of the foundation makes it buildable. Although the finish of the foundation is not flat matte, it is not dewy either, the best description of its effect is a “no make-up make-up” finish. We recommend this foundation for everyday office wear due to its light, long-wear and effective coverage.
Because this foundation is on the runnier end, it can be applied in two ways. For full coverage, we recommend using a foundation brush. However, for a more natural look, a beauty blender is your best choice.
“NXY Total Control Drop Foundation” sells in Lebanon for 22.5$/13ml, which is pricier than L’Oreal Paris True Match Liquid Foundation sold at 26$ but for 30ml, and Maybelline New York Superstay 24H Foundation sold at 24$/30ml.
