Lip Gloss -NYX -Butter Gloss in Angel Food Cake

on 2/22/2018 11:06:00 AM


I’ve had 5 shades of the original butter gloss: this, Tiramisu (my absolute fave), Red Velvet, Devil’s Food Cake, and Blackberry Pie. AFC is described as a mauve, but it pulls more pink on me. I was a little disappointed because I’m not a huge fan of straight-up pink lip products, but mauves are a staple in my collection. I’ve noticed that NYX’s shade descriptions aren’t exactly on point. What is on point, however, is the quality of this gloss. I’ve reviewed Butter Glosses in general, so I’ve already expressed my undying love for these little cosmetic treasures, but I feel like I need to do AFC some justice. Even though it’s so obviously pink on me with not a hint of mauve to be found, this is a very flattering colour on my NC10-NC15 skin tone. Not over-the-top pink, but enough to add some life to my face when my chronic illness flares up and I don’t have the energy to do a full face of makeup. It’s ridiculous how much livelier I look when I swipe a couple coats of this onto my lips. I wouldn’t say this is an MLBB shade for me, but it’s very natural looking without being unnoticeable. Butter glosses tend to last an hour or so on me, which isn’t a big deal as I love reapplying them and they’re easy to apply without a mirror. If you have a light and cool skin tone, this will be a nice pop of natural colour to your face. If AFC doesn’t work for you, NYX has about 30 something other shades of this stellar little gloss, so you’re covered. -Ny

Brows -NYX -Sculpt and Highlight Brow Contour

on 2/22/2018 9:06:00 AM


I bought this on a whim from the 75 percent off bin at my local CVS. I actually really really like the product, the brow pencil works really well and the color (taupe) is great for me. The highlighter stick is also really pretty and gives a great, subtle sheen. That being said, the packaging is so terrible that I don’t know if I would buy this again, unless I could find it in the bargain bin. Every time I use it both ends get stuck in the caps and o have to fish them out. Then they usually fall on the floor and I have to stick them back in the tube before using it. I also think Nyx “gets” you by putting barely any product in the packaging. There products aren’t that cheap if you are getting only half the product as the more expensive brands.

Lip Gloss -NYX -Professional Makeup Butter Gloss

on 2/22/2018 8:59:00 AM


I love these lip glosses! The colors are really pretty and flattering; I don’t see the need to buy expensive lip glosses when products this good are available from the drug store.

Pressed Powders -NYX -#NoFilter Finishing Powder


I almost didn't buy this given the negative reviews here, but then thought that I'd try it anyway since it's not expensive. I'm glad I did. It really works for me (I use Light Beige on my NC42 skin) - a very simple, clean, blurred finish (as promised) that lasts through the workday. Has not broken me out so far. At this price point I highly recommend it.

Loose Powders -NYX -Mineral Finishing Powder

on 2/22/2018 12:24:00 AM


Great powder. It gives a very natural finish and makes your face look flawless, and is very lightweight but lasts nearly all day (even for my oily skin). The container is huge so it should definitely stay at home (not good for packing in your bag for a mid-day touch up), but the good thing about that is you get a lot of powder and it lasts a long time. You don't need to use very much since it's so fine and soft it just glides and spreads evenly over your face. A big plus is that it also prevents my foundation from looking ashy. Fantastic product.
