Blush -NYX Professional Makeup -Powder Blush - Peach


I have trouble finding blushes since I'm just so pale and cool toned and look like an Oompa Loompa Clown with most. So I wouldn't expect a blush with the name "peach" to work with my blue undertones. That being said, this blush is clearly a really pretty doll/rosy pink. So whoever works for NYX's product naming department should reconsider their career. Despite the poor naming choice, this blush is great! The formula has just the right amount of pigmentation - a little goes a long way on my fair skin and I'm sure this will last several months since I just use a light hand every day and blend thoroughly.

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

on 9/21/2018 7:45:00 PM


This setting spray transforms and melts my makeup together like no other drug store brand. Using this on my Super Shock Highlighters from Colourpop makes my skin look like glass! I spray it over a powdered face and it doesn't look too dewy, it's a flattering natural glow.

Cons: Doesn't really affect staying power and the nozzle could be better (more mist like and less Windex spray bottle)

Primer/ Corrector -NYX Professional Makeup -Studio Perfect Photo-loving Primer


This is my 1st time trying primer (I just turned 24 and am a late bloomer to the whole full face of makeup thing). I bought the clear one and found that it did a somewhat decent job of filling in my pores. I do think it could have been better though and will have to search for another drugstore primer with better reviews. I will buy again only if I don't find a better primer online.

Lipstick -NYX Professional Makeup -Lip Lingerie

The red-toned shades of this product are just insanely long lasting. I wore Ruffle Trim swimming and in the shower and it was still on my lips. It's also worth noting that the shades will look different on different people, for instance Ruffle Trim looks very red on me and is super flattering. My sister admired it and bought it only to have it show up more tan and more pink on her.

Lip Gloss -NYX Professional Makeup -Midnight Chaos Chromatic Lip Gloss

on 9/20/2018 1:17:00 PM


Wow! Gorgeous packaging on this lippie! I bought the first four shades and I am very impressed. So far I have only had the chance to wear two colors but they were both beautiful. All shades have a blue shift (the 'chromatic' aspect of the product).

02 Pastel Comet is a blue gloss with a blue shift but is surprisingly wearable. It is not too dramatically blue yet still maintains the color.

03 Galaxy Glow is a cool-toned pink gloss with a blue shift. It's the most wearable shade in the 11-shade collection and can be worn in the daytime and in more casual settings.

The only downside to this product is that it only has .08 oz, half of the amount in Lip Lingerie and only one-fourth the amount in SMLC. So use sparingly! But it is absolutely beautiful.
