Lip Gloss -NYX Professional Makeup -Butter Gloss in Angel Food Cake

foto

Another good butter lipgloss. The color is a medium pink but seems to have a purple tintish undertone. Because of that it's not a gloss I can put on every day. But still pretty. As with all the butter glosses they don't stay put very long and need to be reapplied often.


Liquid -NYX Professional Makeup -Professional Makeup Total Control Drop Foundation

I wanted to give liquid foundation another go but also didn't want to break the bank. Don't let the tiny bottle fool you. A few drops of this foundation go a LONG way, and I only need about 3-4 drops to get a nice medium coverage. It wears really well too, I put it on first thing in the morning (with a tinted moisturizer) and take it off and my cotton pads are soaked with the foundation. The finish is gorgeous and I echo other people who say it gives an airbrushed look. It's light on the skin, I never feel it caked on (but then again, I don't use much of it). A liquid foundation that I find cakes on is NARS but this is pretty light compared to that! Overall for the price it is a really good value, it's my new go-to foundation.

I regret purchasing this and am unable to return it now. Believe the other reviewers when they state that this is NOT a dupe for Anastasia Brow Wiz. I stupidly decided to buy it anyway. The brow pencil is very hard and waxy, making it impossible to sketch in natural looking brows. I have this in taupe which has too much red in it. Also, this does not last all day, it fades on my brows before the day is half over. And on days, I work out, it disappears immediately.

I just bought Fireball and Mermaid today at Walgreens.

Fireball is a reddish orange rust metallic shade that has the best application when you use your fingers. It's very pigmented and it's a nice shade to wear by itself.

Mermaid, on the other hand, is not very pigmented, but it has a beautiful gold/green shimmer to it that's great for layering on top of other shades. I tried layering on Mermaid on top of Fireball, and it created this really pretty duochrome orange shade with a gold/green shift. I can also see Mermaid looking very beautiful on top of a white or black base. I also applied it like a highlighter and it looks colorful but subtle.

I highly recommend trying any of these shades, but I wish they would work better with my eyeshadow brushes.

Primer/ Corrector -NYX Professional Makeup -Cosmetics Honey Dew Me Up Primer

I bought this product after reading that it contained collagen and gold flakes. But not to my surprise,it does nothing to my skin. Its a thick liquid solution,which I thought would instantly hydrate my skin,but it does nothing. Even as a primer,it does no wonders. It neither elongates my makeup nor does it makes application any easier. I wish it could be of any purpose. Highly disappointed from NYX for this primer serum.

very high coverage if any of the tones work for you. covers imperfections well. useful for sharpening brow makeup if you use concealer in your brow routine. for the price, i can see why some people enjoy this concealer.

on me it translates as a dry formula; it pulled at the skin around areas applied. even the palest shade offering is rather dark which made the concealer shockingly noticeable. starts to break apart on the skin after a couple of hours. looks terrible in natural lighting.

$5.00 on the website but you can find them on sale. When they go on sale, I stock up.

The formula is excellent, non-sticky and doesn't look overly shiny, no sparkle at all. It dries fairly quickly, some colors faster than others and it feels as if I put lip balm on. My lips feel soft and moist, not sticky. It does not wear off easily and most colors leave a little stain when it does wear off which I like. I love the opacity and texture of these glosses. The pigmentation is great and they are nicely moisturizing, they never dry my lips out. Granted the packaging is not high end or pretty, but for $5.00, in my opinion, the quality inside rivals most high end glosses or is better. The color range is huge, with 34 colors which is rare for a drugstore priced item. I have about 15 of them. My favorites are the lighter ones and nudes but Cherry Pie is a lovely red that I can wear and feel comfortable in. Reds are hard for me to pull off(blonde, blue eyes, gold skin tone). But this one I can wear. Most of the nudes are just gorgeous, really a nice job on the nudes.

I do have to reapply, these won't last all day and most of the glossy part will come off after a meal, depending on what you eat, but I don't mind re-applying. I really love many of the colors and the way they feel on my lips. The brush picks up the right amount and I don't have to keep dipping in to apply. They smell nice, but not overwhelming. Kind of like cake. A great value for a very nice product. If I paid 25.00 for this in high end packing I would write the same review. It feels and looks high end. I don't know how the really dark colors apply because I didn't get any of those colors but there are some videos on you tube where they swatch and apply each color.

Pros:
Great price
Huge Color selection
Feel nice on the lips
Nice opacity and pigmentation
Moisturizing
Nice applicator picks up right amount of product

Cons:
Packaging isn't pretty

I found this concealer quite patchy and super hard to blend, definitely won't purchase again.

dries out super quickly but if you add some oil (rose hip for example) every once in a while, it works just fine!

I only have one shade- ginger snap- a brown shade. It delivers a sheer wash of color but it's pretty pigmented for a gloss. of course, it's not long lasting but it's so easy to reapply that I don't mind. I definitely would repurchase this shade when I finish it, and want to try out others!

Tiramisu is a shade that really flatters me. I never look good in any lipstick or lip gloss shade but this one is an exception. Very beautiful and not too dark.


Loose Powders -NYX Professional Makeup -HD Studio Finishing Powder

I like this A LOT. I have many, many drugstore powders, and this along with my no. 7 Perfect Light loose translucent powder, are the ones I prefer to set under the eyes because they cause the least creasing, can be applied so that they have an almost undetectable finish, and don't make my fine lines stand out. I can sweep my whole face with them as well.

This powder is translucent and matte on my NC 42 skin tone unless I apply a lot and don't sweep it away, in which case it does show up as a sheer, dry, white color. I don't bake with it, and I wouldn't suggest baking with it. It's easy to overdo. A little goes a long way. The packaging is great, comfortable, easy to open, and somehow, never a mess.

Concerning shimmer, it doesn't have any. The NYX MINERAL setting powder may have some, but not this one.

I have repurchased already, and would repurchase again.

I have Exotic, Ruffle Trim, Seduction, and Cabaret Show.
I love the colour scheme of these lip lipsticks, but I don't think it would be everyone's cup of tea. I love it because its nude that suits my skin tone. Does not brighten my complexion, its more subdued, but personally I love how my lip looks (the matte, full, effect) when I wear these.
The lipsticks all have a grey/brown base, in yellow lighting it can be more pronounced.
If you have dry lips, these lipsticks can accentuate these, my lips are ok most of the time so I never had any problems.
I have been repurchasing Exotic, and its my favourite shade.

I've been hoping to find something like this for a long time! I've tried quite a few, including the much vaunted Bi-Facil. But, other than Clinique's Take the Day Off, they've either not worked very well, irritated my sensitive eyes, made my vision blurry, or some combination. Not this—and it’s so much less expensive.

It also works well on my very long-lasting liquid lipstick.

Nice bottle, too. Clear plastic, but squeezable and a small opening, so neither spill-prone nor easily wasted.

No complaints!
