NYX Can't Stop Wont Stop Foundation Review | Oily Skin




Hello friends! 


I'm back with a foundation review! Ever since I've decluttered my foundation stash, I have purchased multiple foundations to try and review and this one caught my attention. This is a review of the NYX can't stop won't stop foundation that I purchased in store at ulta beauty.

So before we begin, let me tell you about my skin type. I have very oily skin but I do suffer psoriasis outbreaks on my face and get dryness and flakiness around my temples and the sides of my nose. When my episode is quite severe, my chin and mouth usually start flaking off and its quite a hassle to find products that are good for oily skin that dont emphasize dryness and flakiness.

This new NYX foundation biggest bragging rights are the 45 shade range they provide. For brands nowadays, coming out with a less than stellar selection will have the expected mob of disappointed followers given how diverse the world is. The shade I picked up is neutral buff and I got it for $13.99


Application:

This foundation claims to be really good for oily skin and I do agree. My main problem with this foundation is its initial application and how it emphasizes every single texture and dryness you might have on your face. In the before and after application above, this was done using a brush and the foundation settled on every single pore and clung to my textured areas around my cheek and nose which is not flattering at all.



I usually use a brush to apply my foundation but I wanted to see if applying the foundation using damp beauty blender would make a difference in the finish of the foundation. The first layer with the beauty blender provided little to no coverage which was quite weird. The second layer was much better and the damp beauty blender did help with the texture issues that I was having when I used the brush.

Staying Power:

Once the foundation has settled with my skin, it actually looked better throughout the day compared to its initial application. The foundation stayed pretty well throughout the day and the staying power is quite impressive.


Overall Thoughts:

As far as a conclusion, I am not a fan of the foundation because of how it emphasized every single texture and pore on my skin. With my problematic skin riddled with acne marks and pigmentation, its claim of being a full coverage foundation didn't really live up to the hype so I'm going to have to give this product a thumbs down.
