Eye Shadow -NYX -Hot Singles Eye Shadow (new formulation)

foto

I bought two of these because there was a sale going on at Ulta and the colors/packaging drew me in. I got these in "Bad Seed" (red) & Epic (purple). I did use another one in a gray shade a long time ago but I cannot remember what the name was.

I swatched them both, not very good but you can't always judge by a swatch on the arm.

I've been using Epic for quite some time but it's kind of difficult to apply. I always use eye primer but this requires applying it to the eye at least 3 times. It's very sheer and I didn't care for it. :/ it ended up going in the trash.

All in all, the packaging is cute but it's not worth the money and the color payoff isn't that great.

I'm going to try to use "Bad Seed" and give an update, but I don't have high hopes for it.



Lipstick -NYX -Lip Lingerie

I’ve bought two different shades of this product (Bedtime Flirt and Lace Detail) and the former had a significantly drier formula right out of the gate, to the point where I had to chuck it. While I do like the product, I’m iffy about buying more, because nudes are so difficult to pin down on my lips.


Other -NYX -Pro foundation mixer

foto

I've only tried the white mixer so far. I really do like it- It's great being able to choose a formula and match it to me (within reason, of course) instead of buying a foundation I don't *love* just because it came in my colour. I hasn't affected my foundation performance or staying power at all either, although I'm only about a half a shade to a shade too pale for my teint miracle foundation so I don't have to use too much of the white mixer. I'm not sure if it would be different trying to bring a foundation up/down more than that, though. It can be a little difficult to blend with more dewy foundations, I always have to check that it is *all* mixed in, but it's not anything crazy.

Primer/ Corrector -NYX -Born to Glow Illuminating Primer

foto

I really do love this primer- I put it on either on top of a hydrating primer or directly on skin if i've run out. Gives a really nice 'glow' to your skin and it makes foundation look fabulous. It's absolutely great to find something SO kind to my dry skin too- It really don't add any texture at all from what I can see. The glow isn't obnoxious, glittery or comparable to a highlighter though, it's a very subtle 'radiant' sort of look.
I don't suffer from acne so I can't comment in that regard, but I do have quite sensitive skin and I had no problem using it even on bare, slightly irriated skin which is a huge plus. The smell is very... generic cosmetic smell, I suppose I could say? It doesn't smell perfumed.

All in all it's fantastic for the price.

Lipstick -NYX -Soft Matte Lip Cream in Rome

foto

I seem to be one of the few people who really don't like this product- I absolutely adored the colour of this particular one but that was really where the love ended. Application was a little patchy so it took a little longer than most lip products I use, but the finish started out really nice. Not two hours later though, it looked SO dry. Really didn't stand up to food at all, and I found patching the colour up not at all easy without it looking caked on.
I'm not a stranger to dried out lips, mine are quite bad in general but I use lip scrub and a balm then usually i'm golden even for liquid matt lipsticks. Not so much this one, though.
