Lip Treatments -NYX -Butter Balm

I love the tube butter glosses formula, color and smell wise. But this one I do not like. The worst part is the smell, it's like some very acidic fruit or vitamin C pill. I just couldn't stand it. It was that way in several colors I tried, all the same smell.

The formula was just okay. You could use it as a light balm, but if your lips are dry it will not smooth them out visibly during wear, so if you want it for that, pass on this. It's not that rich or thick. It's super, super light to the point of likely only working well on lips that are not dry already.

I had to get rid of mine due to the smell being intolerable.



Brows -NYX -Brow Mascara

I think they changed the color names - I used to use "espresso" but now the darker/ashy color is sold as "black". Luckily it's not actually black (marketing fail, NYX? I almost didn't buy it.) I have dark brown brows that are fairly full but fading with age and have gaps in them here and there. This mascara is so easy to brush on and the pigment will graze the skin and baby hairs and fill in gaps in the shape with no effort. And of course hold s the brow shape as a mascara is supposed to do. Great buy, great find.

Contour -NYX -Highlight & Contour Pro Palette

This palette's variety in shade make it seem as if Nyx attempted to please all skin tones, but only ended up with a singular palette with some shades that work for the mass population. I believe that there will be few people who would utilize all shades in this palette comfortably. There are many shades missing from the "contour" shades. For a contour palette, I was expecting one very cool toned taupe but there is not.

Thankfully as this is DS, I got it on a $10 off sale, and had some other inserts previously purchased from the NYX single/refillable line from their standing stores, but then this isn't so much worth the money, as me customizing my own palette. I ended up removing 4 of the shades from the palette and putting in a matte white, fawn/sienna tone, and a shimmery highlight.

Nice colours but very bad formula. They are very dry, I prefer spending more money and buy the ones from Kat Von D

Lips -NYX -Epic Ink Lip Dye

I think some people might have this product confused and think that it is a lipstick. I'm kind of surprised by the bad reviews but it's interesting that two people can have such a different experience! I'm glad there are a million products out there so we can all find something we like.

Onto my review...

When I heard NYX had lip stains, I couldn't resist picking up a few colors that I don't already own in another brand. I grabbed Victorian, Obsessed, Heartbreaker, Fresh, and Slay. Victorian is the first one that I tried and is the one that I'm wearing in the photo I uploaded above. This is watery and VERY pigmented. I got a little bit outside of my lipline, but that's an error in my application and not feathering from the product. This dried in about a minute and it hasn't budged since. I've put vaseline on top to give a little shine to my lips, and I've been drinking out of a straw all day and there's no transfer on the straw. I've eaten twice and it hasn't moved. Color me impressed! I can't wait to try the other colors. I don't know how this is going to come off if it didn't come off with Vaseline... that's my only concern lol.

Update: I've added pictures of Slay, Heartbreaker, Obsessed, and Fresh. Heartbreaker and Slay are my favorites. The best way to wash these off is with soap and water. Baby oil took off like 10% of it and then did nothing. Love these!
