Blush -NYX Professional Makeup -Ombré Blush

on 7/15/2018 7:31:00 PM


I have this in the bright apricot shade called Feel the Heat. At first glance it looks neon and overwhelming. While it's highly pigmented, all you need to do is slightly tap your brush into the powder before tapping it into the apples of your cheeks. Gives me a radiant flush that lasted me throughout sitting outside for hours in 100 degree weather. The Feel the Heat shade suits my medium tan skin perfectly... definitely a staple for brown skin!!!

Eyeliner -NYX Professional Makeup -Liquid Crystal Liner - ALL


I have one of these in a pale gold shade, and I quite like it. I am a bit surprised at the bad reviews here since this is just a standard glitter liner. It isn't amazing or jaw-dropping, but it applies glitter in a thin line on the eye or the face. I have never experienced any kind of burning when I use this, so I imagine that NYX might have changed the formulation. The color is pretty, and neutral enough that it can be incorporated into daytime/neutral looks pretty easily.

Eyeliner -NYX Professional Makeup -Metallic Eyeliner


Like the previous reviewer, I got this in the shade Rose Gold. It is more of a champagne shimmer color, but it is pretty nonetheless. I don't really like this as a liner on my upper lid, but it is great as a lower lash line liner, an inner rim liner, or an inner corner highlight. It wears fairly well, and the color of the tip is pretty much exactly what I get on the skin. It isn't a must-have by any means, but I will continue to use it as I like the brightening effect and the shimmer that it brings to my eye looks.

Eyeliner -NYX Professional Makeup -Epic Ink Liner


This liner is everything I want it to be: super-matte, super-black, long-wearing, and so easy to apply. I've tried KVD and Physician's Formula, and Epic Ink is by far my favorite. The brush tip is flexible and the deposits the right amount of product. I have hooded eyes, so a lot of liners run on me, but this one barely even smudges after hours. Price-wise and performance-wise, this is a winner in my book.

Blush -NYX Professional Makeup -HD Blush


I had my eye on the HD Blush in Soft Spoken from NYX for quite a while, and I recently picked it up when I returned something to Ulta. The texture is super-soft, which is nice for application but not so nice for the product not crumbling in the pan. I do not like the fact that the blush is so delicate and it can never be taken when I am traveling. The packaging looks okay from the outside, but it doesn't do anything to protect the product inside. Shade-wise, it is pretty but nothing spectacular; it is a sheer pale, milky peach that barely shows up on my NC10ish skin. Some people might like that, so if you're pale and you want a very subtle blush then this is for you. I will keep it and use it, but considering the marks against it I don't think I would repurchase or buy other shades from the line. NYX is a brand that generally hits it out of the park for me, but I prefer their original blushes and their mosaic blushes way more.
