Hi everyone welcome back! I’m so sorry for being so absent, things have been crazy. I’m back now and here with a foundation review for you all!

I’d seen this foundation about on social media and wanted to try it for a while and finally got round to it when I saw it in NYX (was supposed to be Christmas shopping at the time) I’ve just finished the bottle and thought I’d share how it went!

The claims

From sheer to full, your ideal coverage is just drops away with NYX Professional Makeup’s new ‘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 feeling today. Want more coverage? Add more drops! Buff expertly using the ‘Total Control Drop’ foundation brush for a seriously smooth finish.” – NYX Cosmetics Website.

So basically – you can decide on the amount of coverage you’d like by applying different layers of foundation to your skin, whether you prefer the sheer look or something more full coverage.

Does it work?

The way this foundation works is fantastic because you can have as much coverage as you like without it becoming dry. A lot of full coverage foundations tend to dry out my skin, but this one feels so lightweight and looks flawless all day!

It is a very watery consistency as you can probably tell by the dropper packaging: so if you’re not careful it will run down your face and splash into your clothes, so just ensure there’s not too much in the dropper and you’re gentle with it.

I think this foundation blends best with a damp sponge rather than a brush to get an even coverage. It’s really good for not settling into fine lines or into your pores


I think the dropper style is a much more hygienic way to apply foundation, especially if you’re a make up artist working on clients.

Wear Test

Application: 7:45

Check in 1: 12.30 – still perfect!

Check in 2: 4.30 – still good just could do with touching up on my nose.

Wash off: 7.30 – lasted almost 12 hours with great coverage and no dry spots.

Overall, I think this is an amazing foundation! I do wish it was in a bit of a bigger bottle but apart from that – I love it!

I will definitely be buying this again!
