Mascara -NYX Professional Makeup -Double Stacked Mascara

I received samples of this product for free. Normally the Double Stacked mascara is $15. Firstly, they sent full size tubes for samples! The two tubes, one mascara and one tube of nylon lash fibers, are enormous. This mascara is intended to act as a base coat and a top coat for after the fibers are applied. The mascara has a lot of product and a good applicator. It is meant to lengthen and add volume. I found that it does reasonably lengthen my lashes with just the base coat. Unfortunately, if you have to curl your lashes and your lashes struggle to hold a curl, this mascara will straighten curled lashes. Finally, I had difficulty applying the layer of fibers. No matter what, the fibers will get in your eyes. At best this is an annoyance and at worst those of us with watery eyes will ruin our carefully applied mascara. I did not find that the fibers added any volume with the top coat applied. If your lashes can hold a curl with non-waterproof mascaras and you are not bothered by fibers in your eye then this one may work out for you. This mascara just did not work out for me and I will not be buying it in the future.



Concealers -NYX Professional Makeup -Professional Makeup Full Coverage Concealer Jar

This stuff is awful.
I bought this thinking with was a dupe for the Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer.
It's so drying on the under the eye area yet too oily for use on the eyelids. Once applied to the undereye area it stays put yet it creases into my fine lines and emphasizes dryness and texture.
This stuff ruined a beautiful smoky eye I did but I guess I'm the one to blame since it's not marketed for use as an eye primer yet I can use so many other concealers as an eye primer as long as I set them but even when I set this Nyx concealer very well it caused my eyeshadows to crease.
Thank god I'm wearing some very full falsies today cause if not my smoky eye would look a whole lot worse. My falsies are hiding the terrible creasing going on with my eyeshadow right now.
This stuff is useless and will be hitting the trashcan tonight.
The shade porcelain is anything but the name implies. It is a soft peach color, for any of my very fair gals out there.

Bronzers -NYX Professional Makeup -Matte Bronzer (All)

I bought this in medium and it looks as if I spent a month in Cancun. This shade is so natural that everyone has been complimenting me for looking healthy. I wear this on top of my beloved powder foundation from NYX. It looks great and matte with no glitter or shimmer. Love it!


Eye Shadow -NYX Professional Makeup -Holographic HALO Eye Tint

on 4/21/2018 6:17:00 AM

I was excited to see the four colors of the new NYX Holographic HALO Eye Tint! I picked up a couple of them but of the two the yellow shade really stood out for me, This is cream shadow which can be easily applied with the doe foot applicator. Be prepared to build this color up because these aren't super pigmented as I was used to from NYX. You will definitely want to use a primer. When I tried this without one it began flaking. Even with a primer this flaked a little but a primer helped it stay a few hours longer than normal. Otherwise the colors are okay, but overall I am a little disappointed with the payout and performance. The yellow shade is perfect for the corner of your eye to add a little pop of color.




Primer/ Corrector -NYX Professional Makeup -Makeup Setting Spray - Dewy Finish

I need to find another dewy setting spray for my incredibly dry skin. This one makes my foundations oxidize at least one shade. I use dewy/hydrating serum type foundations and although they all do oxidize a bit on their own, this spray makes it much worse. The spray nozzle doesnt give the finest mist but overall it is still a good hydrating setting spray.
