3 Ways to Use a Dark Foundation: NYX Hydra Touch Powder Foundation Review & Usage

Have you ever bought a foundation accidentally that is way too darker than your actual skin tone. I am sure a lot of us have this kind of experiences while buying foundation, specially while shopping online. So what to do with that- throw away your hard earned money? Definitely not. I have got the NYX Hydra Touch Powder Foundation in shade Cocoa which is way darker than my actual complexion. So today I will share with you some simple ways that I use the foundation, along with a review of the product.


About NYX Hydra Touch Powder Foundation:
A weightless pressed powder that offers buildable coverage with a matte finish. Now available in five more silky shades, Hydra Touch Powder Foundation can be applied dry or wet. Our innovative formula also contains moisturizing botanical extracts to leave skin looking soft and fresh.


Price: Rs.2500 Available here


Packaging: The NYX Hydra Touch Powder Foundation comes in a black compact case with 2 compartments. The lid has a compact mirror and the 2nd compartment comes with an applicator.


My experience: I liked the texture of the NYX Hydra Touch Powder Foundation. It is not cakey and spreads smoothly on the skin once applied. However, it would have been great to review it properly if I had received a shade similar to my skin. It is very soft on the skin and blends well.



Now how I use the product?
1. As a contour: We often look for a good contour powder or kit, but if you have a dark foundation you need not worry, just try it for contouring your cheeks and nose. I tried the same with the NYX Hydra Touch Powder Foundation in Cocoa and it did a splendid job as it is matte.


2. As an eyeshadow: Brown eye shadows can be a great option for earthy eye makeup. NYX Hydra Touch Powder Foundation in Cocoa makes an excellent shade for brown neutral eye makeup too. I used a very small quantity to give a subtle earthy tone.


3. As a lip colour: want the Kylie Jenner kind of shade on the lips, but dont have a dark lippie? Well when will your dark toned foundation be of use? Mix the shade with a clear lip balm and you get the perfect brown lippie. That is what I did with the NYX Hydra Touch Powder Foundation in Cocoa after lining my lips with the NYX Lip Liner Pencil in Brown.


NYX Hydra Touch Powder Foundation is a nice product, truly matte. It is available in a variety of shades, you just have to pick the right one.
