My experience about NYX HD Studio Photogenic Foundation

This HD Foundation delivers the medium coverage. Its a very light weight foundation which is not runny or watery in terms of consistency. It spreads evenly and it is easy to work out with,  iuse my Flat foundation brush from Sigma to apply this foundation evenly and  iset it using Kryolan Translucent Powder It applies sheerly.The coverage is buildable, so if one wants a heavy coverage, then can simply apply more or apply more to the areas where you need it. The foundation dries down quickly and has a velvet matte finish which is not very dewy..This photographs quite nicely which is a plus point!!!
I used one full pump for my entire face and neck . People from all over blogosphere have compared it with MUFE HD foundation, I was surprised wit hthe staying powder of it, it nicely stay on for around 7 hours with touchups( especially on my forehead, it tend to get oiler than other areas)
I bought this product online, so  I ended up buying a wrong shade Soft Beige, But, surprisingly, this product sinks in well to the skintone and Its just perfect for me….

You can see all of the swatches above. These swatches will help you if you wish to purchase the product 🙂

However, I feel Natural Beige would be a perfect match for me….
here is a snap of me taken using flash.
This photo is taken after 7 hours of foundation application, you can see some shine on my forehead, that area tend to get oily soon…

Hope you all liked my review 🙂 Bye dearies!!!

hi I am new here but i just wanted to share something.. i do wear this foundation… my problem is its a bit runny and the coverage is abt sheer to medium.. it does look good on camera with no visible flash or shiny cast.. but in real life it wont much hide red acne or dark scars and things like that.. still it does last for a atleast 4 hrs without oil control base/ primer and gives a solid 6 7 hrs with primer! for reference my shade is 05 medium and I am NC 40-42 in MAC, N& in l’oreal true match foundation, 05 in Lancome teint idole 24 hrs, natural tan in revlon whipped cream.. i hope this helps..
ppl with basically good skin will find this a great every day foundation 🙂
