Lipstick -NYX -Matte lipstick in Whipped Caviar

foto

Whipped Caviar is a mauvey MLBB kind of color that works so perfectly with a variety of makeup looks. The texture is very smooth and buttery, and it feels comfortable on the lips. It isn't ultra-matte, but more of a satin-y matte like UD Vice lipsticks in the Comfort Matte formula. This is a very easy to wear shade for me (somewhere between NC10 and NC15), and on deeper skin tones I think it would be more of a true nude. It wears nicely and it feels like nothing on the lips. This is a great every day kind of lipstick, office-friendly without being pink or beige, and super-affordable.

Loose Powders -NYX -HD Studio Finishing Powder

I have normal to dry skin, and I don't wear a lot of foundation. My goal is either to set my BB cream with some concealer (usually no under eye correcting except a bit of BB cream) or just to mattify my skin after moisturizer if it looks ok because I like to be matte. I set concealer, under eye area and lids (if I choose to go shadowless) with a smaller brush and then buff everything with a dense kabuki brush.

I'd say this product can do these things but it is not comfortable to use. The result is just average. My lids become shiny very soon. I noticed that if I apply it in the same quantity as other powders it makes me feel much dryer so I learned to use it very lightly because it is easy to overdo. If I apply too much and my skin feels tight I fix it with some face mist. So I definitely don't recommend this to people with dry skin unless you use A LOT of moisturizer before makeup.

As some reviewers stated the powder is both light and finely milled so it goes everywhere and you can easily inhale it which I never ever encountered with any other powder. Also it gets between the lid and the jar so sometimes it won't close at once. The overall experience is messy and annoying.

I don't necessarily think this product is utter disaster and I will use it up but I definitely won't repurchase. If you want an inexpensive translucent powder that will not overdry your skin I recommend looking into Essence All About Matt compact and Lumene loose powder.

Formulas really long lasting not a huge fan of the applicator it’s a straight wand w/o a slant, which makes it hard to apply with. Overall good product, exotic is the only colour I can wear though


Brows -NYX -Auto Eyebrow Pencil - Dark Brown EP05

This product is crazy good! It's my holy grail also so cheap only 4 dollars at Walmart. I have oily skin and thus product stays on all day and it's very true to color u just need to press harder for more pigmentation. The brush is not the best but you can use it to distribute color a bit. Great for people on a budget who want full eyebrows.


Lipstick -NYX -Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks

I was so excited to try these but I was disappointed when I applied to my lips with the doe foot applicator. The liquid was so thick, slippery and all over the place. Dabbing product to the back of my hand and using a lip brush was the only way it would apply properly with a lip liner. I used a matching NYX lip pencil.

SIDE NOTE: I ended up dabbing some on my cheeks and when blended perfectly in with an ELF Small Stipple Brush it worked beautifully, I was in LOVE!! I do recommend these as liquid blush. On the lips it requires better application techniques than just a doe foot. The longevity is okay but not great on lips. On cheeks it lasted all day.
