If you are a makeup junkie like me that you already know exactly which foundation I’m talking about, if not then let me enlighten you. So I’ve seen many raving over the NYX Total Control Drop foundation be it the Gram or the internet, bloggers have been obsessed with this foundation. I wanted to see what the Whoo- Haa was, and on one of my trips to Jo’burg, I made sure I went to get it!
Now that you are fully aware of what I’m talking about, let’s get into all the finer details. I purchased it from Clicks for R220,00 which I thought was a bit pricey for a drugstore foundation; despite the price I was still excited to try it. The foundation comes in those little drop bottles, and its glass and kind of matte which I love. The bottle is really pretty. The bottle however is only 13 ml which is exceptionally small, especially for the price paid. IF you enjoy this foundation, then you will have to replace it very often and it will get pricey especially if you using it everyday.
Because of the drop, using this foundation can be extremely messy and a lot of the product tends to waste and not to mention its extremely unhygienic; I really don’t think a drop bottle was a good idea, i actually prefer a pump bottle for my foundation. Apart from the drop, the formula is really thin so it really doesn’t work well with dry or a combination skin tone. The coverage is light to medium, however I found it more on the light side and I had to build on it quite a bit to get the coverage that I wanted. The formula blends well and it has a very light velvet and matte finish. Once you have build up on the product it looks nice. The foundation however is not enough to give you a flawless finish and blemish free look.
My verdict: Definitely worth a try! I love the finish of the foundation once it has been set, however due to it not working very well with my skin, I will not be purchasing it again.
