If you’re a YouTube head like me, you’ve probably seen all the beauty videos reviewing the new NYX Can’t Stop
Now, I have to say, I had no intention of buying this foundation.
Looking back now, I’m not sure why I wasn’t interested. I think I was just a little sick of the beauty hype but one day I found myself in Boots and I saw the foundationin-storeso I thought, why not.
Although CSWS has over 40 shades, as per usual, there was only a handful of shades in stock,
From my first swatch, it seemed like the right shade, wrong undertone. Deep Sable is pretty neutral in
CSWS has a lot of claims including the new popular claim of “up to 24-hour matte wear.” I always get annoyed when I see this because, in reality, this isn’t what most people (if any) look for in a foundation. No one really needs to wear foundation for 24 hours. No one.
On first application, (wrong undertone aside) I noticed how natural the finish of this foundation was. Normally, with matte foundations it’s hard to keep a natural finish, it always tends to end up looking cakey but this looked like my skin. I was really impressed.
In terms of coverage, I’d say CSWS is medium, definitely not full unless you apply a few layers. It’s a good everyday foundation. I could still see some blemishes through the foundation but nothing crazy. To mute out strong
One thing I noticed immediately was how matte it really is. This isn’t like your
If you have dry skin, you want to stop reading here because this is not the foundation for you.
The second time I applied CSWS I used less powder, much less, just a thin dusting to blend my highlighted areas out and that was all I needed.

You simply do not need that much powder with this foundation, which is something I love.
I have to say, from wearing it for a week I didn’t expect much from this foundation but by the end of the week, I fell hard for CSWS.
This is the foundation for oily/combo skin. The foundation we’ve all been praying for. Normally, when I wear foundation I need to blot around 3-4 times a day as my oils become evident quickly but with CSWS I didn’t have to blot once.
A whole 11 hour day with no blotting…can you imagine!
As I type this I’m still not over it.
Whilst 24-hour matte wear is redundant as
For £15 I would definitely recommend this foundation, however, I would strongly suggest going to an NYX store to have yourself
Besides, that I’m a big fan of Can’t Stop Won’t Stop. It has a fantastic shade range (if you go in-store), it’s perfect for those of us with oily/combination skin and it’s pretty affordable too!
It’s my new go-to everyday foundation!
