Eye Shadow -NYX Professional Makeup -Professional Makeup Love You So Mochi Eyeshadow Palette


I purchased this palette full price along with the mochi highlighter bar in Arcade Glam. I really love both! The finish of each is a beautiful wash of glowing color. The pigment is perfect for someone who loves diffused looks like I do. You do not have to spend lots of time blending these shades out. If you add in a dark matte brown, charcoal grey, or black to pop into your crease you can create a really pretty modern smoky eye with these shades. They last on my skin and I get 0 fallout. They are worth it! :)

Liquid -NYX Professional Makeup -Can't Stop Won't Stop Full Coverage Foundation

on 8/20/2018 1:21:00 PM


So this is a partial review.... I just bought this today and haven't worn it on my face yet. But I wanted to start a review based just on the shade and undertone range so far. I picked Nude. I am fair with yellow undertones. Nude is the absolute most perfect match of any foundation I've ever tried. I swiped it on my neck and it virtually disappeared into my skin. Truly, never had this happen before. The consistency is light and it dries super matte super fast. I'm going to wear it to work and gym tomorrow (Florida summer humidity and heat and an hour and a half or hard sweaty workout) and will post the full review after. The price was $15 at Ulta but they always have a $3.50 off coupon so honestly it's a great price especially for the amount of product you get. Glass bottle shows the true color of the foundation and the pump is perfect! Squirts out just the right amount. So far, I'm loving this! Stay tuned.....

Lipstick -NYX Professional Makeup -Root Beer Float Butter lipstick

on 8/20/2018 6:56:00 AM

I saw Root Beer Float for the first time on a FOTD here on the boards. It looked like a great mauve shade on the poster. When I found it in store, it looked way more warm than I expected and for a second I wondered if I had the right lippie (I did). It was so cheap I just bought it and tried it based on how it looked on the poster. On me it is a warmer mauve (no lilac or grey tones here at all) and a light creamy texture (not sheer, not the heavy cream feel, not matte, not satin). My nw20 deep winter complexion with these weird golden undertones tend to pull out warmth / orange in shades that can go that way. So this was warmer looking on me than on the original poster. But not OTT warm...just a warmer toned mauve. When I first applied it, my first thought was, " this is like a summer version of Whipped Caviar" (not matte, slightly warmer neutral). Root Beer Float was a nice little surprise. It also kind of reminded me of a mix between MAC Mehr and MAC Cream in Your Coffee (not as brown as CIYC, not as pink as Mehr, but in that family). If you are looking for little liptick pick-me-up, check out NYX Root Beer Float.

Lips -NYX Professional Makeup -Soft Matte Lip Cream (All)

on 8/20/2018 5:23:00 AM


First of all, I must say that I was on a whim to try this, given that they are affordable and have many colors to choose from. Especially on nude shades, which I am typically a nude-lipstick goer. The reason I have strayed from NYX soft matte for years (yes, years!) was because I heard that they are, first, sticky (which I hate) and the colors are not opaque (which is the main issue to consider if you want to go nude). The other thing I commonly heard (yet do not mind as the first two) was that they do not last long. Moreover, I have tried "Buenos Aires" owned by my cousin, and "Zurich" owned by my colleague (obviously, I just swatch them on my arm) and I can felt the stickiness there.

Recently, out of the blue, I wanted to purchase NYX. I wanted to have a good nude-beige lipstick that is affordable, and NYX soft matte in "London" is what everybody recommended. From 'every' review posts, it was such a perfect nude-beige, yet it took me months to decide to purchase it.

So on to my thoughts on this NYX soft matte in "London". I love the shade. This shade is literally the only shade of NYX that drawn my attention to ever since! It is such a nice nude-beige that did not white wash you face, really. It gave your face some tone, neutralizes your look in some way. Again, this is a nude-beige, so you must indeed wear make-up; some smoky eye look is required at least. And, I would not recommend this shade to those with medium skin tone and darker. I am Thai with fair-medium skin tone. So highly recommend to those that have the skin tone similar to me or 'lighter'.

Moreover, I did not know if they have changed their formula, or the formula varies for some specific colors because I did not find "London" sticky at all. The intensity is OK (well, this is a nude after all. The color itself barely shows up, lol). So overall, NYX soft matte totally worth the hype and worth the money.

Eyeliner -NYX Professional Makeup -Felt Tip Eyeliner Pencil

on 8/19/2018 5:07:00 PM


Bought "That's the Point" felt ti[p lines in black at Ulta on a BOGO 1/2 off. My 13 year old picked "Hella Fine" - with a very fine point tip, and "Put a Wing on It" - slightly thicker tip.

Regular retail at Ulta in 2018 was $9.99 but averaged out to $6.95 each with BOGO and coupons.

NOT Waterproof - so be aware if you wear this to a wedding or funeral or it you have excessively oily skin.
On dry skin it wears pretty well.

Do not "smush" the fine point or you will ruin it.
