Hi guys! Today I have a review+wear test for you on NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop foundation. Got this foundation a few weeks back at Walgreens for $15. It comes in 45 shades and it’s “lighweight, waterproof and pigmented”. Hence why the “full coverage” and it also “controls shine and mattifies”. Now, let me tell you if it performed as it’s supposed to.
Didn’t used a primer, just applied the L’oreal Hydra Genius Moisturizer (for oily skin) and Colourpop All Star Setting Spray. Used a Real Techniques sponge to apply the foundation (shade Medium Buff). For concealer I used L’oreal Infallible Pro-Glow (02 Creamy Natural) and to set, Maybelline Master Fix Loose Setting powder (Translucent).
At 9am my foundation was applied, concealed and set. As you can see in the photo above, the foundation looked matte with a medium-almost full coverage, and it didn’t feel heavy.
Now, I don’t have any more pictures because it couldn’t be appreciated how the foundation wore. I had this foundation on for 13 hours and did four check-ins.
So, at 1pm the foundation had rubbed off from my nose where my glasses rest (normal for all foundations). It also emphasizes the dryness around my nostrils but overall, it looked good. By 5pm it had started to break up on my chin and forehead. Though it started to get shiny, in general it looked okay. But by 7pm it was looking a bit cakey and it had also broken up on my cheeks. And by 10pm, my makeup was a hot mess: all broken up, cakey and quite shiny (even though I’ve been more shiny before).
In general, I liked the foundation and I’m going to be trying it with different primers and setting sprays. Will keep you updated on that.
