Lip Gloss -NYX Professional Makeup -Butter Gloss in Angel Food Cake


Another good butter lipgloss. The color is a medium pink but seems to have a purple tintish undertone. Because of that it's not a gloss I can put on every day. But still pretty. As with all the butter glosses they don't stay put very long and need to be reapplied often.

Liquid -NYX Professional Makeup -Professional Makeup Total Control Drop Foundation

on 4/26/2018 4:00:00 PM


I wanted to give liquid foundation another go but also didn't want to break the bank. Don't let the tiny bottle fool you. A few drops of this foundation go a LONG way, and I only need about 3-4 drops to get a nice medium coverage. It wears really well too, I put it on first thing in the morning (with a tinted moisturizer) and take it off and my cotton pads are soaked with the foundation. The finish is gorgeous and I echo other people who say it gives an airbrushed look. It's light on the skin, I never feel it caked on (but then again, I don't use much of it). A liquid foundation that I find cakes on is NARS but this is pretty light compared to that! Overall for the price it is a really good value, it's my new go-to foundation.

Brows -NYX Professional Makeup -Micro Brow Pencil

on 4/26/2018 12:56:00 PM


I regret purchasing this and am unable to return it now. Believe the other reviewers when they state that this is NOT a dupe for Anastasia Brow Wiz. I stupidly decided to buy it anyway. The brow pencil is very hard and waxy, making it impossible to sketch in natural looking brows. I have this in taupe which has too much red in it. Also, this does not last all day, it fades on my brows before the day is half over. And on days, I work out, it disappears immediately.

Eye Shadow -NYX Professional Makeup -Professional Makeup Prismatic Shadows - All Colors


I just bought Fireball and Mermaid today at Walgreens.

Fireball is a reddish orange rust metallic shade that has the best application when you use your fingers. It's very pigmented and it's a nice shade to wear by itself.

Mermaid, on the other hand, is not very pigmented, but it has a beautiful gold/green shimmer to it that's great for layering on top of other shades. I tried layering on Mermaid on top of Fireball, and it created this really pretty duochrome orange shade with a gold/green shift. I can also see Mermaid looking very beautiful on top of a white or black base. I also applied it like a highlighter and it looks colorful but subtle.

I highly recommend trying any of these shades, but I wish they would work better with my eyeshadow brushes.

Primer/ Corrector -NYX Professional Makeup -Cosmetics Honey Dew Me Up Primer

on 4/25/2018 7:27:00 PM


I bought this product after reading that it contained collagen and gold flakes. But not to my surprise,it does nothing to my skin. Its a thick liquid solution,which I thought would instantly hydrate my skin,but it does nothing. Even as a primer,it does no wonders. It neither elongates my makeup nor does it makes application any easier. I wish it could be of any purpose. Highly disappointed from NYX for this primer serum.
