My Honest Review Of The Matte To Last Foundation By Nykaa

Nykaa’s Matte To Last Foundation

Nykaa Cosmetics Matte to Last Pore Minimizing Foundation - 01N Light

First Impressions

I have always been wary of trying out new base formulations— any foreign element (usually) congests my pores, making me break out. That’s right, painful boils appear on my cheeks, mostly where I administer the maximum foundation— to cloak the acne scars on my face. However, with Nykaa’s Matte To Last Foundation, it was love at the first try! Miraculously, my skin hasn’t broken out, even once, roughly three weeks in with this foundation.


The unique liquid-to-powder formulation glides effortlessly, diffusing almost instantly into the dermis. It gives my skin a luxuriant matte coverage, as promised on the label. The best part, however, is how this brew minimizes the appearance of the pores. Owing to the MVP of the ingredient mix, sebustop — curbs surplus oil production and further trims the diameter of the pores on one’s face. Due to the immaculate finish granted to my skin, by this one-of-a-kind foundation, I have never had to summon a setting powder to put a lock in my look. Folks, take my word for it — this foundation doesn’t move. More on that, ahead!


Feather-light, breathable and waterproof— these attributes make a compelling case for the Nykaa Matte To Last Foundation. Braving the transitional weather in the suburbs of Mumbai has been a cakewalk (for me) because this long-staying base doesn’t run with perspiration. Moreover, even when I have the base on all day long, it never feels tacky or icky on my skin.


Scanning the beauty shelves for aeons but still can’t find a foundation shade remotely close to your skin colouring? The Nykaa Matte To Last Foundation solves this problem. The line, bearing 15 shades, celebrates Indian skin tones in all their glory. So, no matter where you are on the spectrum, there is a Mr right for you which is ‘matte to last’. I have been using the shade O2Y light, which sits pretty on my face without the need for any aggressive blending action.
