Hi Nikia! I would love a review/ first impression on The Mattifier from Estee Lauder. Pleaseeeee
& also I would like to know ur opinion about the Effaclar Mat moisturizer from La roche-posay. I use it but maybe there are better ones or I’m using it wrong
Love from Mexico!

laura rubio says:

Honestly beautiful your face looks much better when you were the Estee Lauder or the allnighter but right now your face looks really chalky and dry it doesn’t look smooth at all just my opinion I still love you

Lorenzo V says:

Hi Nikkia! Just a quick one! Have you ever tried the No. 7 Beautifully Matte Foundation? I only ask because I have oily skin like you, but this foundation has been my holy grail for the past 4 years. Literally, it is the ONLY foundation I’ve used. It’s £13.99 in the UK, not sure what that would be in AUD but it’s pretty affordable. I honestly think you should try it if you can get a hold of it somehow? Big fan btw, love all your videos!

Ariel Ramsey says:

super good advice!

Taylor Chow says:

Please review the new Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation!

Natalie Kovacevic says:

I actually prefer this foundation shade and minimal make up look on you Nikkia!

Daniela Loera says:

Applause for testing a product over a multiple days!!!! First YouTuber I’ve seen who doesn’t feel the need to finish a video at the end of a day or just update us in the description box with how a product is working. Thank you for working hard to show us a review in depth!!! 🙂

Ana May Carpio says:

I want that! I’m oily too..Can I ask what shade i can use if I’m NC25 in mac?

Crystal Gonzalez says:

suzannah tedesco says:

Please mention the lipsticks you are wearing in this video. They look beautiful on you!

Dawn Galasinao says:

i use this foundation daily and the more you use it the better and less oily your skin is

cheryllynn donnelly says:

I have oily skin and started wearing double wear nude. I use benefit matte poreprofessional and am still oily and needing blotting. I uses nyx matte setting spray and bake my oily zones…. I don’t have time at work to fix makeup so need tips or make up to last my whole work day….ohh help my fellow oily skin girl!

Breanna Mayhorn says:

What is that lovely purple on your nails? Love your videos ! You’re awesome and so beautiful girl!

hotcris3 says:

I love this foundation. It’s my go to for special events as I don’t wear foundation every day. The only downfall is that it oxidizes horribly, like two-three shades darker by the end of the day.

Nichole Hogg says:

Hey Niki,

I absolutely love your videos; I trust your word when it comes to make up for oily skin as mine is suuuuppper oily!

I was just wondering if you could find an amazing vegan/animal cruelty free foundation for oily skin that is affordable?

Minecrafter 5678 says:

Nikkia, you have gorgeous skin, and you are not at all as oily as you say! My skin is probably the oilest in the wotld. I have tried everything, at least i feel i have. Thank u for all the reviews and tips for oily skin. I do have one question, did you use any powders or setting spray after applying foundation? Ty! Jessica.

Aj Kowalski says:

I’ve heard a lot about the new Coty Airspun loose translucent powder and that it’s a dupe for your favorite Laura Mercier loose powder! You should do a video on this!!

Dafna Lila says:
