Lips -NYX - Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi

It was my first nude lip colour. Totally fell in love with the shade. However, I prefer long lasting matte colours and lip creams don't serve that purpose. Otherwise it's a great shade to have!

Sorry to be the Debbie Downer of the group but I was disappointed by this lipstick, at least in the color Pastel Dust. My lips were slightly dry and it emphasized every little flake...it looked horrible close up. For this reason I don't plan on buying any more of this line. The color, a light peach, was pretty, and the texture was nice. I don't recall wear time, unfortunately.


Primer/ Corrector -NYX - Honey Dew Me Up Skin Serum and Primer

I was excited to try this for the first time after passing it so many times at Ulta. It's a very beautiful looking product with the gold flakes sitting in the formula. When I first opened it, I wasn't sure how well it would work as a primer since the consistency was so watery and thready. I was sure it would probably make a great face serum though. The smell is pleasant. It's almost a citrus-y scent, close to lemon. The applicator is a small spatula connected to the lid. I apply it by opening the lid, letting a little of the product drip back into the container, and smear what's left onto my face. Then I just rub it into my skin with my hands. Here's what I think of it as a primer and a serum:

Serum: I think this product makes an excellent serum because I can feel it being absorbed into my skin and make it feel very hydrated and radiant. There isn't any stickiness or gross residue left and the smell is just amazing to me. The only problem is that some of the gold flakes don't dissolve and is just a lump of gold on my face that I have to peel off.

Primer: It's a good primer, in my opinion, for certain people. I would not recommend using this as a primer for a dewy foundation. I became an oil slick at the end of the day with this primer and the Maybelline Dream Cushion foundation. On the other hand, paired with the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless was a match made in heaven! My skin looked absolutely flawless throughout the whole day. I have oily to combination skin, so I'm sure that's a big factor as well.

I love this as a serum and seldom as a primer. I believe they could improve this by either getting rid of the gold flakes, but if they have to stay, make they either smaller or easier to dissolve on the skin. I wouldn't want them to leave because they add such a beautiful touch, but I would rather the serum be a complete success than have a few mishaps.


Lips -NYX - Soft Matte Lip Cream (All)

These little babies are truly a drugstore gem! By far the best matte lip cream I've found, and so cheap! I usually get mine at Ulta buy 1 get 1 50 % off. They smell great, like vanilla cupcakes (very suttle, not too overpowering) and they are so easy to put on. The texture is like a mousse, and blends so well, doesn't cake up my lips, and comes off easily. Honestly, I have these in almost every color and wear them every day to work. I've gotten so many compliments, and I see why. These lip creams are simply amazing!


Loose Powders -NYX - HD Studio Finishing Powder

Overall a nice product. Keeps my face pretty matte for a good while, and even keeps my rather oily nose matte for about 5-6 hours (I have combo skin).
I used it the other day before going to a party, and it lasted from around 1pm till 3am with minimal caking and oiliness. (Disclaimer: I was a little drunk at 3am so it might've looked better through my beergoggles, lol)

The container is quite messy, because you can't "lock" the powder in the inside, like you can with the GOSH Prime'n'set (if you're familiar with the packaging), so you'll most likely get white powder everywhere - so stay away from it if you're wearing a black top.

It's very finely milled in my opinion, especially when compared to the GOSH Prime'n'set which feels kinda heavy on the skin, and isn't suitable for baking, if you ask me.
I haven't tried baking with this product yet though, so I don't know if it's suitable for that.

All in all a nice setting powder, which I'll likely repurchase once I run out of it, if I don't find a better one.
