Lipstick -NYX Professional Makeup -Matte Lipstick - MLS08 Pure Red

on 4/20/2018 8:25:00 AM


This is my favorite red lipstick! I pair it with Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in “Call Me Crazy” and they’re a perfect match. I have both on in the picture I uploaded.

This is very bright, red-orange. It’s not as matte as some of my other NYX Matte lipsticks but it stays on well enough- just beware that you will leave a stain on your food (sandwiches, rolls, etc.) and if you kiss someone lol.

Highlighters -NYX Professional Makeup -Away We Glow Liquid Booster

on 4/20/2018 6:21:00 AM

I am loving the NYX Away We Glow Liquid Booster highlight drops. This liquid highlighter is wonderful because you can customize the amount of highlight you want and where you want it. You can mix it with your primer for a dewy look or mix it with foundation for a little more glow. You could also apply this separately with a damp sponge, a brush, or your fingers and apply this to high points on your face. I love that you can create any type of look you want with this. The formula wears well and doesn't crease or fade during the day. I've used this on my brow bones and with an eyeshadow primer it lasts all day. There are similar products which are more expensive than this and this is as good if not better than those. Loved the color I purchased and will probably purchase another color for summer.

Lip Liners -NYX Professional Makeup -Professional Makeup Slim Lip Pencil - Mauve (831)

on 4/17/2018 11:48:00 PM


This lip pencil is just ok. The color is beautiful but too many negatives for me to repurchase or recommend. First, it's too soft, so it doesn't give a nice sharp outline to the lips. Second, because it's so soft, it needs to be sharpened all the time. And third, it has no lasting power.

Pressed Powders -NYX Professional Makeup -HD Finishing Powder Translucent

on 4/17/2018 11:21:00 PM


It's a pretty good, pretty cheap powder, which keeps my oils from breaking through slightly during the day, without making my skin overly dry right after application. I wouldn't call it completely translucent though; at least in the amount I apply this, it does lighten my foundation slightly though, and I'm only NC20. This powder is pretty fine, but I still prefer loose powder, as it's even more finely milled. I.e.: I can't use this under my eyes because I'm used to *super* finely milled powders, like MAC Prep+Prime, Rouge Bunny Rouge Diaphanous or Tarte Smooth Operator

I'm not mad at this powder though - it's pretty good. I use it for about half of my face (where I want to brighten up), and this lasts about 2 months for me like that, which is less than the loose powders I've had. If I urgently needed a setting powder, I could totally go with this one, although it's not my favorite
