Contour -NYX Professional Makeup -Professional Makeup Wonder Stick

Took off my foundation when I tried to blend it out. Very low quality! Wouldn't recommend to anyone, was so disappointed. The colours are nice but since they fade away to nothing, taking the rest of your makeup with it, so not worth it! I do like the style of the tool though as a pen.

Eyeliner -NYX Professional Makeup -Epic Ink Liner

i typically use gel liners - specifically the elf pot eyeliner - and i feel like both this pen and that pot each have their pros and cons.

this one doesn't transfer to my upper eyelids, which is nice. but it's not oilproof by any means and often smudges on me throughout the day. the outer corners of my eyes can get kind of watery and i do more of a downward/puppy liner wing these days so that could have something to do with it.

i do really like the thinness of the tip - angled liner brushes can fray pretty quickly after a few washes if you don't carefully reshape the bristles and wash them very gently, so with gel liner i often would have to do much thicker lines. i can do more delicate + precise work with this pen for sure.

but i dont think i will repurchase. the fact that it smudges so severely + flakes off a bit throughout the day makes it a little high maintenance for me. i dont like the idea of pens in the first place because i like to buy products that last a long time and i feel like a pen's shelf life is more predetermined (and way shorter) than a gel pot's, but i wanted to try this to see if i'd been missing out since so many people seem to like it. i dont think this liner is the worst makeup product i've ever tried, i just dont think it suits my eye/skin type and makeup preferences.

Liquid -NYX Professional Makeup -Can't Stop Won't Stop Full Coverage Foundation

Typically I wear BB creams around the house, but I've been trying to find a lightweight foundation that I could wear for long work days.. and this is my new holy grail product! I keep reading reviews with people saying this isn't a full coverage foundation, maybe that's because it feels so lightweight? It's very pigmented and easily covers any acne, dark circles, and redness without needing to reach for my usual concealer.

The colour range is impressive, although I am disappointed that most places seem to only carry 8-10 shades in store.. the other shades would need to be ordered online. On that note, as someone with very light skin, this is the first time I was able to find a drugstore brand of foundation that actually matched my complexion without leaving me orangey, or ghastly pale.

My biggest complaint with foundations or BB creams is that my skin is oily (and sensitive) so I don't find they last long, but this foundation keeps my skin very matte ALL DAY (and we're talking, 12+ hours of me running around, high humidity) with no separation, zero transfer. I've been caught out in a rainstorm, fell asleep with a full face of makeup on.. and still looked great. All it takes is a little micellar water, and it removes so easily, which is also a huge bonus for me.

THANK YOU NYX!! What an awesome new product :D

Polishes -NYX Professional Makeup -The Taupe

I would give it 5 lippies, but it does not on the fingers have the lovely purple-taupe tone on me in the bottle. It looses the purple and taupe and goes to a lovely gray in 2 coats. 3 coats would not be needed nor really change the color. It does deserve praise as a lovely deep gray.

Sadly, it's discontinued. The formula is good and it applies well. The price was also good for NYX Girls polishes and the color range really good.

It's a lovely grey with a hint of warmth but also some coolness. It's not a cool, cold grey but about in the middle between warm and cool. I would have preferred bottle color with more warmth. But I still love it and it's very flattering on me.

But if you were expecting bottle color, one coat is too sheer, it needs 2 (3 is overkill). And expect none of the purple-taupe, and it to be a gray about 2-3 shades darker than bottle color and you won't see much lavender on the nail. Still lovely though. I tried to find an accurate picture of it and post it.

Eyes -NYX Professional Makeup -Lid Lingerie Shadow Palette

I like this palette a lot, it's one of the best I've tried from the drugstore. The pigmentation is great (but admittedly not "amazing", you can't really compare Nyx with the likes of Sugarpill or anything) and the colors are suuuuuuuper blendable. These are neutral mattes that are very work-appropriate and classy on the eyes. There isn't a single shade that I don't like and I find them all very buildable if you want a more intense look.

The packaging is a bit "thick" but I don't mind the bulkiness because it feels more durable than most of Nyx's other palettes. It's also really cheap, I think I got it for $10 from the NYX site.
