Beauty | NYX HD Foundation

 Hello Lovelies,
Hope you are all having a good week, we are half way through now, roll on Friday! Today I'm sharing my thoughts on the NYX HD Foundation so keep reading to find out more :)
ProductThis is the NYX HD Foundation in the shade Nude and costs £12.50 for 33.3ml which comes in a range of 8 shades using light-diffusing technology
ClaimsIt claims to enhance the appearance of silky smooth flawless skin by using light-diffusing technology and achieve a picture perfect look any time you are in the spotlight
Review I felt the consistency was fairly medium coverage when squeezing it out the tube, upon applying it felt very wet like most foundations do, yes Gill! but it felt more watery on the skin as opposed to when I first squeezed it from the tube. It didn't give me too much coverage, I applied 2 coats of it and it was still a light-medium coverage. I have applied this foundation with a flat top brush, a paddle foundation brush and a beauty blender and I'd say the coverage was fairly similar with all.

In terms of longevity I felt it went a little patchy a lot sooner than my other foundations usually would. I always set my foundation with a setting powder and setting spray and it started rubbing off around my nose and mouth area around 4-5hrs of wearing.

The foundation feels slightly oily once applied to the skin before using a setting powder so I would say a setting powder is required for this and if you have oily skin i'm not sure how this product will work for you. I have dehydrated skin and I was still slightly oily with it.
Overall I think this would be a great foundation for beginners to use as it's really easy to blend out due to it being a light coverage. If you are also looking for a more natural look this would be one to check out, I personally love more full coverage foundations so I probably wont reach for this too much unfortunately.
Let me know in the comments below if you have used this foundation?
