Makeup Brushes -NYX -Total Control Foundation brush

on 2/21/2018 10:45:00 AM

I purchased this and the NYX Total Control Foundation. The brush has very soft synthetic bristles and is angled with the bristles curving in slightly. No matter how I tried to use this, the brush absorbed more foundation than I could apply to my skin. Just did not work out for me.



Liquid -NYX -Professional Makeup Total Control Drop Foundation

I am actually using this to make a tinted moisturizer. I add 4 drops of NYX drop foundation to my moisturizer with spf and am very pleased with the results. For some reason, liquid foundations look like I am wearing a mask. When I tried to use this as foundation, it took way more drops than the packaging indicated to get good coverage and it did not look natural on me. I even purchased the NYX Total Control Foundation brush to apply this and it just did not work out for me. When I blend it into my moisturizer I get a natural, evened out look that I really like. I set this with Pur Balancing Act powder.

Mascara -NYX -Professional Makeup Worth the Hype Voluminizing & Lengthening Mascara

What a good name as this is being "hyped" all over YouTube! This is an inexpensive mascara that was billed to perform as well as more expensive brands. I love mascara, high and low end, although my everyday mascara is Lash Paradise or Cover Girl Clump Crusher. NYX is not a brand I purchase often. This mascara is at best mediocre. It does not flake or transfer, but it is not at all thickening for me. It basically coats my lashes, is buildable, but that does not make it more thickening. I solved this by tight lining my upper lashes. I noticed immediately that there was very little on the brush, like not detectable. The brush is the standard, nothing special. I am curious how much product is in the tube? I have never used a mascara straight out of the tube that appeared to have no product. I think that it is worthy of a trial since it is cheap ($7.99) and is currently buy one get one 50% off on Ulta. I will probably use it for awhile to see how much product is in there.


Lipstick -NYX -Lip Lingerie

I received the Lip Lingerie in the shade Exotic. The cost for a tube is normally $7, but I received it for free as part of a Black Friday shopping promotion. Although it is a very cheap product, I can honestly say that I am glad I did not spend my own money on it. This liquid lipstick is a cream that dries down, but does not seem to quite fill in all of the space on the lips. It is not fully transfer proof on hands or on a drinking glass and it does not hold up at all against food. It also is weak against water. The applicator is also an odd shape and at an odd angle. While not everyone likes the typical doe foot applicator on most liquid lipsticks, the Lip Lingerie applicator will be more difficult for people to use. Although the product is cheap and the color is pretty, I would not repurchase this or recommend it.


Concealers -NYX -Professional Makeup Full Coverage Concealer Jar

This was a product that was there for me when nothing else was, coverage-wise. I went through a really bad bout of cystic and nodular acne in the past 6 months and it got to a point where no foundation was working and my regular undereye concealers didn't cut it.
Enter the NYX full coverage concealer. I use the shade beige or light beige, which is the lightest yellow shade in the line. It's a tad too dark for my winter skin (NC15) but I could still make it work. I usually used it under foundation, covered up what I need to using a warm fingertip and then patted the foundation on top with a sponge. I find the coverage stayed all day when applied that way and it didn't look too cakey. The coverage isn't 100% but I was using it on the worst of the worst in terms of imperfections and it did take away most of the redness.

I would highly recommend if you're looking for something to cover very severe imperfections like acne or birthmarks. It can also be used as an eye primer or for cut creases. I definitely don't recommend for undereye concealing - it's just way too heavy.
