I know I’m super late on the bandwagon with this one, but I eventually picked up the NYX Total Control Drop Foundation because I’d seen practically everyone and their mother try this and I knew I needed to try it! Available in 24 shades, this foundation includes 13ml of product and costs £14.
The description online is such:
From sheer to full, your ideal coverage is just drops away with NYX Professional Makeup’s Total Control Drop Foundation!
Fine-tune this velvety, matte foundation with the included dropper. Simply adjust the number of drops until you create the look you’re feelin’ today. Want more coverage? Add more drops!
One thing this foundation is is buildable. It’s a super liquidy foundation that is applied through a dropper applicator. I find a small blob on each cheek, the chin and the forehead creates a really beautiful natural, light-medium coverage. And then the more blobs you add the higher the coverage it gets. The lighter the coverage the more natural it looks, as you add layers it does start to look a little more like foundation, but it’s also still really flawless.
The foundation blends like a dream with a beauty blender, but can be a little streaky (I find) with a brush and so a sponge is definitely my choice of applicator. It blends out really well to a satin-matte-natural (yes, a lot of words) finish.
The shade range is pretty good, I’m not actually the lightest shade (which is unusual). The shade I have is 05 Light and it matches me pretty much perfectly. The foundation wears well throughout the day. It does fade, but it doesn’t go overly patchy. It’s not the longest wearing foundation I own, but I can get a good 8 hours wear out of it. I’ve literally been wearing this foundation daily since I bought it as I really do love the finish and the buildability of it!
Have you tried this foundation? If so, what do you think?
