NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Foundation Review

Hey Beauties!


I’ve been loving testing out foundations from the pharmacy/ drugstore lately and this has just been added to my collection.




NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Full Coverage Foundation


As per the website:


What it is:

Lightweight, waterproof and pigmented AF, our new Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Full Coverage Foundation hustles as hard as you do. This comfy liquid formula comes in 45 flattering tones that don’t transfer. Every creamy shade glides on smooth, delivering matte coverage and color that stays true for up to 24 hours. Our little over achiever also works to control shine and mattify your complexion all-day long. But it doesn’t stop there: this foundation is noncomedogenic and suitable for normal, oily, combination, and sensitive skin types.

How to use:

After prepping face with Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Matte Primer, apply and blend foundation using our Total Control Drop Foundation Brush, Pro Flat Foundation Brush, Complete Control Blending Sponge, or your fingers.



Contains 1.0 fl.oz / 30ml of product. Available in 45 shades. Vegan. Cruelty free.




My Experience:

The packaging is standard, glass bottle with a pump.

The first time I heard about this foundation was from Alissa Ashley on YouTube as she was part of the campaign for this foundation and helped select shade ranges I believe. My initial thoughts was that it’s liberating as she is a woman of color and there are 45 shades available in this foundation. Not only is the shade range huge but they cater to skin tones with olive, warm and dark complexions which not a lot of brands are not getting right. It’s pointless having a maximum shade range if the undertones are not done correctly.

I chose the shade Classic Tan which matched my complexion and undertone very well. There were a number of shades to choose from in store which were great.

I applied this foundation using a damp beauty sponge and the coverage was medium with one layer. I usually ‘judge’ a foundation by how much it covers up my freckles to see how much coverage it provides. After 2 layers I could slightly see my freckles although it felt and appeared extremely lightweight on the skin. The texture is very smooth and thin once blended out onto the skin.

It appeared matte as the description suggests but not ‘cakey’ or thick at all. It seemed to have a blurring effect on my fine lines and pores too which was very impressive.

One bonus about this foundation was that it’s extremely long wearing and I felt like the more I continued to wear this throughout the day the better it appeared. I do not need to touch up at all while wearing this and it does not settle into my smile lines nearly as much as other foundations do.



I would recommend this foundation if you are a bride, going out for the evening, attending a concert or event, or if you need your makeup to last for an extended amount of time.

Although it’s not recommended to people with dry skin, I have dry skin and I can wear this foundation using a moisturizing primer/ moisturizer or a dewy mist. This would be ideal for combination to oily skin.


I purchased mine at Clicks pharmacy for R260.




Have you tried this foundation before? What are your thoughts?





Thanks for stopping by 😊

  1. I got a sample of this foundation last year and I hated it. I have combo/oily skin. Freshly applied, it looked nice. As the day went on, it looked awful. Cakey & patchy. I couldn’t take it off fast enough when I got home from work that day. I tried it more that once and used different primers, but got the same result each time. Just not for me.
