NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat Foundation Review


Hello my beauties,

How many of us find that shopping for the right foundation is the most difficult task?

1.  The shades doesn’t match

2. The formulation of the foundation doesn’t suit you right.

However, I found my perfect foundation in NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat foundation.

NYX Claims: NYX Cosmetic’s Stay Matte but not Flat Liquid Foundation provides full coverage of mineral enriched matte finished. The oil-free and water-based formula is perfect for in the studio or all day long!

– Oil free

– Water based

– Full coverage

– Mineral enriched with a matte finish



The foundation comes in a tube package with a matte black strip at the top and a matte finish cap and details embedded in black over the transparent body. Though, I would have been happier with a pump style packaging. In the tube style I feel we have less control on the amount of product we can take out at a time.

It is priced at INR 900/- and you get 35 gms of product.

You get 35 g of product which is plenty.

Formula and Texture

It is a water based and oil free foundation. It gave me a beautiful matte finish and no oily shine. It is a very light weight foundation. It has really good coverage and helps in making your uneven skin tone look flawless.

Another really great thing is the range of shades this foundation comes in. It is huge and I am sure you would find a match for your shade.

Overall Thoughts

It blends in really well. I have tried blending it with my fingers, foundation brushes and beauty sponges. It has been easy to blend it. The foundation does not have a very high staying power by itself. However, when applied over a primer(check my go to primer review here), it stays on for good 4-5 hours


I would rate it 3.5/5

Where to Buy

You can buy it on

Nykaa or Amazon or from the NYX store as well.


Hope you like the review.

Do let us know which one is your favorite foundation? and why?


Lots of love
