Great product with a meh shade range. I tend to wear NW20 / the second lightest shade in foundation lines, and I had to wear the lightest one out of these, so people with fairer skin will not find a match. They look light in the bottle, but oxidize darker. The other light shades were all close to a medium skintone with a pretty harsh peach undertone. Shade #1 is neutral or slightly warm. I did really enjoy how this felt on my face, a lot. Even slathered on, it was both lightweight and full coverage. I have to layer this onto acne and redness, and even layered on it didn't get that orange tint that a lot of products get when oxidized for a couple hours. It didn't feel oily either. It's really a fantastic product and it lasts a long time while staying put. I appreciate that they are catering to dark skin tones because there are not enough options in the foundation world. However, with the ridiculous number of shades they have, you'd think they would get the light shades right rather than making a product that, regardless of shade #, oxidizes to the same drab peach color. Lol.

This is an OK drugstore foundation, with light to medium coverage, very lightweight. Due to packaging, I compare it with MAC Waterweight foundation, which is in many ways a better foundation than the NYX one. I'm not a fan of dropper dispenser, but since the foundation is so liquid, it's the perfect way to dispense. The foundation is easy to blend, just do not put it over a silicon based primer (don't do this with any water based foundation); it will never mesh into skin and it will separate on skin. I don't find this foundation neither highly pigmented nor buildable. With fingers, brushes or sponges I always get a light to medium coverage; I still need concealer for spots and my undereyes. I tried building the coverage, the foundation ends up just staying of top of the face and smears badly throughout the day. The finish is natural, satin but dewy, very nice looking, but it shows every single dry patch I have. It lasts well throughout the first part of the day, but disappears from the skin towards the day, even set with powder. Still, no major transfer to clothes and phone. On me it creases around my smile lines. The range of shade is very great, I could find the perfect one for my yellow undertone.
