A new foundation NYX Cosmetics dropped this year is the TOTAL CONTROL DROP FOUNDATION. I was really excited to try this product out to see how full coverage a liquid foundation could be.

I was very surprised of how small the bottle was for this foundation and thought if this was to be a good product there is noway it would last. The bottle is made of glass with a plastic cap and obviously a rubber top for the drop.
First impression wasn't surprising. The foundation itself is very water like and runny.
I blended it into the skin and as you can see on the bottom it clearly had very low coverage. Although I was surprised and didn't expect that at all, I decided to mix it in with one of my favourite foundations I have that is way too dark for me.
A while ago I bought the Laura Mercier Silk creme foundation and accidently ordered it 2 shades darker than my skin tone. Which I don't mind during the summer but is a bit much for the winter. With one pea size amount of Laura Mercier I mixed in 3 drops of the NYX Drop Foundation. It made the product thinner (Laura Mercier is very thick in consistency ) and lightened the foundation perfectly to match my skin tone. (I used porcelain for NYX)
My final verdict is this product doesn't have much coverage at all. Using it alone you will get a very natural finish. Not matte, not dewy. A silk like finish with very little coverage and there isn't much product for it to last if used alone.
On the other hand, as a foundation 'enhancer' you can customise your own cocktail of foundation to match your skin tone and skin finish. You could use a matte foundation for oily skin, dewy foundation for dry skin or just your everyday usual foundation and customise the shade.
I have tested this product multple times and admittingly reaching for it everytime to either losen my foundation or lighten/darken other foundations I currently own. I'm a big fan.
