NYX Total Control Drop Foundation Review

The NYX Total Control Drop Foundation is NYX’s version of the CoverFX Custom Cover Drops except that unlike the CoverFX, it can be used alone. It’s a watery foundation that you dispense with a dropper and it’s called “total control” because you can supposedly control the coverage:

  • Sheer: 2 drops +
  • Medium: 3 drops +
  • Full: 4 drops +

For this line, I am a shade 09 or a Medium Olive.

In this video, I demonstrate application using 2 drops, then 3, and 4. I settled on using 4 drops of the foundation but I would say that at this stage, it was only a full-medium coverage. I then test it out for wear and check in after 6 hours of use.

I actually got rained on by the end of the day, but surprisingly, even after lightly washing my face with water and dabbing it dry with a towel, there was no transfer and my foundation stayed intact.

I have dry skin but I used moisturizer, moisturizing sunscreen, a priming balm, and an illuminating primer on my cheeks before application. I applied with a beautyblender and ended up with a demi-matte finish. By the end of the day, and after running errands and sweating through 36C heat outside, I was only a bit shiny in my T-zone and experienced a bit of fading in my chin.

My main problems with foundation are 1) finding a shade match, and 2) when it clings to dry patches. The NYX Total Control Drop Foundation matched my skin tone perfectly or at least as close as I can see, and it didnt emphasize any dry patches. My favorite thing about this product is how easy it was to apply and blend to look very skin-like.

Because of these factors, I rate it:

💄💄💄💄💄(out of 5)

I am honestly so glad I purchased it and think this is the best foundation I currently own.

The NYX Total Control Drop Foundation costs P750 in NYX outlets and in beautymnl.com.
