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

on 8/21/2018 12:05:00 PM

Purchased this at the Nyx store and was color matched by SA. She did a very good job and took her time as this brand has about 5 different undertones (hence the 42 shades). I end up getting the color Mocha which matched my skin complexion perfectly. In store she used the primer that goes with this foundation but I elected to use a moisturizing primer (Fenty/Huda) and the foundation applies seamlessly and beautifully. It is super matte but a good moisturizer and primer makes it seem more moist than matte. I purchased the Nyx baked translucent powder as recommended and the foundation and powder work really well together. The look of this was flawless allday. Oh yeah, I also used an apricot color corrector as applied by the SA...she was truly awesome and if your ever in Sherman Oaks, go to that Nyx. They are the best. This foundation surprised me a lot, you definitely get more bang for your buck. It looks pretty radiant (not slick or oily) on the skin. Got lots of compliments wearing this. You can't beat the $14 price tag either.

Eye Primer -NYX Professional Makeup -Eyeshadow Base in Skin Tone

on 8/21/2018 10:42:00 AM


I was hoping this would be a dupe for my Mac paint pot, but it isn’t.

It does a great job of concealing discoloration on the lid, but by the end of the day my eye shadow is creased and my lids greasy. I understand this is a base and not a primer, but why bother using something if you know there are other options on the market that you can get a two in one with ?!

This might work awesome on normal skin, but if you are an oily gal like me - save your money!

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

on 8/21/2018 7:15:00 AM


• No transfer once they dry down
• Wide color range
• Long wearing, no smudging
• They don't get crumbly
• Very comfortable
• Pleasant scent
• Affordable

• Sheer formula, can't get full opacity (at least with the darker shades)
• Patchy during application
• Different color than the tube

Overall, 7/10. I have the shade Berlin which is a deep reddish brown. I really enjoy this formula when I'm looking for a sheer lip product that doesn't transfer. I love how comfortable it feels on the lips.

Lip Gloss -NYX Professional Makeup -Intense Butter Gloss (All)

on 8/21/2018 7:04:00 AM


This is such a pigmented gloss. Mine is in the shade Cookie Butter which is probably the lightest one. You definitely need to exfoliate your lips before wearing these so they don't accentuate texture. They don't feel too sticky. I prefer sheer glosses because fully pigmented ones transfer to my teeth, but this one is the exception (maybe just because of the light shade but I'm still satisfied). They are very affordable so I totally recommend checking them out.

Lipstick -NYX Professional Makeup -Matte Lipstick - Whipped Caviar

on 8/21/2018 1:50:00 AM


This is a gorgeous, long-wearing lipstick, but the dusty mauve shade ends up looking a little grayish on my light, warm-toned skin. For skin with a yellow undertone, it just might not be the most flattering choice. It's also a little drying and tends to settle into the lines in my lips unless I apply lip balm underneath. You can't beat the value of NYX, though, and I do think the color would be really beautiful and versatile on most skin tones.
