Oooooo this is GOOD. I am very picky about lipsticks and I LOVE this! The color is just lovely, it applies nicely and lasts long enough. It feels smooth on my lips. It's just such an easy, beautiful lipstick!



Lipstick -NYX -Professional Makeup Soft Matte Metallic Lip Cream

NYX has one of the best matte - metallic formulas in my opinion and it is actually both matte and metallic at the same time. This applies easily but it does set quick so work fast to ensure a nice even layer. This lasts all day easily and barely transfers at all. This has a slight taste but it dissipates quickly. If you like the matte metallic look this is a lipstick worth checking out. My more detailed review and swatches can be seen here:

Brows -NYX -Micro Brow Pencil

This is the best eye brow pencil I have tried! Gets a clean precise line, good on its own or brushed out for a more natural look. Love the double sided ends with brush attached. Stays on a long time. Great quality for drug store price! Highly recommend!


Liquid -NYX -Professional Makeup Total Control Drop Foundation

This foundation has me SO confused. I'm quote torn about it. But in sum,
Pros:
- buildable, medium-full coverage
- works with both a sponge and brush
- good size for travel
- doesn't break down with my oily skin, stays put on my face a whole day out (~12 hours)
- great shade range, i usually have trouble finding foundations that match my fair yellow-undertone skin.
Cons:
- very expensive for how small it is
- glass bottle (bougie for drugstore but i'm clumsy)
- you cannot layer ANY cream product over this, even before you set it with powder. You will not for the life of you be able to cream contour/ highlight or use cream blush with this foundation because for whatever reason it will come right off. I can't even use most of my concealers on top of it, when i use this foundation i have to conceal before. Like it sort of sets into this film over your face, and any cream broduct breaks it down in those areas and makes your complexion look patchy.

I still use this because it was quite costly for nyx and i don't want to throw it out, and it's not horrible, i just wouldn't repurchase it. I have to be very methodical about what products i want to use with it because it doesn't seem to agree with many. A bit too much of a hassle considering it's not the best thing that's ever been on my face (no innuendo).
