Brows -NYX -Micro Brow Pencil

on 3/18/2018 5:46:00 AM


purchased in the shade "ash brown" - leans very warm on the skin. not remotely ashen.

very waxy and difficult to blend in to anything natural looking.

well priced alternative for people that want a super bold brow and/or can wear warmer toned brow products.

packaging is decent for the price point.

Lips -NYX -Soft Matte Lip Cream (All)

on 3/18/2018 12:01:00 AM


I have this in stockholm and the colour is just so beautiful.

It applies well and smells okay. The finish is really nice.

It does take some time to dry down and it transfers when I eat, so the staying power isn't very strong.

Liquid -NYX -Professional Makeup Total Control Drop Foundation


This light coverage drugstore foundation for me is just fine, average. I wouldn't repurchase it, but I don't hate it and still use it periodically.

I have it in Porcelain which matches me reasonably well, but the shade is very slightly greyish to me. If I could I would have picked one of the other shades with the same level of lightness.

The watery consistency is kind of a cool idea, though slightly annoying to apply since it literally drips down my face and I have to quickly blend it with a makeup sponge. It's not that easy to blend, either. You have to apply a ton of tiny drops all over because of the watery consistency - it really sinks in and won't blend very far like a creamy or more siliconey foundation. The watery sinking in quality is probably a good thing for some skin textures, however, and I do think it lends itself to a more natural look and feel. If you hate the feeling of most foundations, you might want to try this one because it truly doesn't feel like anything is on at all.

My general impression is that for someone like me with skin on the dry/dehydrated side, this foundation isn't ideal. It kind of sinks into fine lines instead of smoothing them out. I want to try mixing this with some marula oil to make it a bit more hydrating.

This foundation could work out well for someone prone to oily skin, or someone younger who doesn't have fine lines or aging skin.

The shade range is also impressive, so kudos to NYX for that.

Brows -NYX -Tame and Frame Brow Pomade in Brunette

on 3/17/2018 7:14:00 AM


This is pretty clumpy for a pomade. Very intense, you have to be extremely careful when applying it. Not my preferred type of brow product. It's budgeproof throughout the entire day, however it's extremely hard to take off, I always ended up with scratches around my brow from rubbing.
