Brows -NYX -Micro Brow Pencil

I like this pencil because it gives a very natural, not drawn on look. The point of the pencil is easy to use, however I find that the pencil doesn't last long at all. It's a great price, but if you have to constantly replace it...............


Highlighters -NYX -Born to Glow Highlighting Palette

on 12/10/2017 7:27:00 AM

The NYX Born to Glow Highlighting Palette is a nice palette that contains a nice variety of colors that can be used for highlighting, shimmery blush, or even a bronzing look. I have more fair skin but I believe the colors in this palette could work well for a large variety of skin tones from fair to deep. The formula is very blendable as well as lasts well throughout the day. This is also a pretty decent value or a great starter set for someone just starting their makeup collection. My more detailed review with full swatches can be seen here:

Mascara -NYX -Za Za Zu Fiber Infused Luscious Volume

on 12/10/2017 2:21:00 AM

foto

If this is indeed a fiber mascara, I'm not finding any fibers in my tube. As far as I can tell, it's just a very dry normal mascara that's practically impossible to coax onto my lashes. It gives a bit of length and definition, but no volume whatsoever. I loved Doll Eye Volume Extreme, so I'm rather surprised that NYX managed to produce such a useless "volumizing" mascara.

Eye Shadow -NYX -Jumbo Eye Shadow Pencil - Rust

on 12/10/2017 1:01:00 AM

Finally got better at makeup skills so I used this for my lid after doing my usual priming (Wet n Wild eye primer) & setting...... I'm so disappointed. This is the first ever eye product to ever crease on me. My other shadows don't do this to me. I even set it w an eyeshadow on top w a similar color, so I gave it to my sister. Never gonna use it again.


Eye Shadow -NYX -Lid Lingerie

I have Sweet Cloud which is a gorgeous shimmery bronze that is so flattering if you suit cooler tones. I've been looking for a swipe and go type eyeshadow and this is perfect for me. The colour is buildable and I only use a tiny little bit during the day, and for evenings I just apply a little more and blend a darker brown shadow into the crease. Voila! Perfection every time and literally NO creasing! I can even shower and this won't come off


Highlighters -NYX -Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator - Sunbeam

foto

I have this in sunbeam and I love it! I use the pro brush that Sephora sends out when you get VIB rouge and that cuts down on all the chunky glitter and leaves you with this perfect glow that lasts all night. It even adds a tiny hint of colour that's super flattering for my neutral-cool skin

Blush -NYX -Bright Idea Illuminating Stick

I️ have this in Brick Red and it is such a great color that I️ feel would look great on a wide range of skin tones. Very natural, blend able and long lasting. I would liken it to the original benetint.

This is a lifesaver! I have sparse brows and was previously using a pomade that was pretty good but could be clumpy. This is so easy to use and natural looking. I️ use ash brown and my hair is light to medium brown.


Primer/ Corrector -NYX -Makeup Setting Spray - Dewy Finish

on 12/7/2017 8:39:00 AM

For me this is just as good as any of the higher end setting spray if you compare the ingredients in it to the skindanavia setting spray they are the same,I was a bit skeptical at first being that my face is an oil slick and it's labeled Dewy don't let that deter you it has nothing dewy about it ,it sets my makeup very well gell the products into one giving an air brush finish,holding it into place for at least 8 hrs plus .always repurchase from my local wallmart or shoppers drug mart,and the price is great not to mention the spray nozzle works wonderfully giving a fine mist of product that spread evenly over the face ..just think of it as NYX fix plus but better

Primer/ Corrector -NYX -Makeup Setting Spray - Dewy Finish

on 12/5/2017 6:51:00 PM

It's the third time I'm using this spray and I don't know that I really like it or not
I have a very dry skin and most foundations turn cakey and flacky on my skin.I also like dewy look so I had to try this sprayer
It gives a dewy finish to makeup but not as much as I expected.when first sprayed,my face looks really dewy but after it dries down,difference between where I applied it and other half of my face,isn't easily detectable.it's dewy finish is easier to recognize when I don't have any makeup on my skin.not a wet look just a little lumineous.it doesn't make skin oily at all so I believe that even people with oily skin can use it
About fixing makeup and adding to it's longevity I can't comment yet.
What I dislike about it is it's sprayer.it makes a big mist and sometimes shoots big drops of it's liquid on my face.that big drops run down my face and ruin my makeup!
If it really fixes makeup and if I figure out a way to fix it's spraying problem I will give it four lipsticks but for now it's best use for me is to spray it on my bare face at days that I'm not in the mood of wearing makeup.it gives me a very light touch of glow which I like
I won't repurchase


Eye Primer -NYX -Proof It Eyeshadow Primer

on 12/5/2017 6:30:00 PM

I was already in love with the NYX HD Primer so I gave this one a shot. I think this one is even better. I work in a warehouse and do lots of heavy lifting everyday and this stuff helped my eyeshadow stay put through the sweating. I still saw a lot of shimmer on my eyelids after an 8 hour day, which is awesome!

Compared to the HD primer, this one is stickier, which is probably why it makes my eyeshadow last so much longer. One little thing though, Proof It makes it hard to blend. With the HD primer, I can put my eyeshadow directly on it and start blending away. With Proof It, it makes my eyeshadow stick and it looks blotchy. However, I still give this 5 stars because it's an easy fix, I just put down a base shadow that's the same colour as my skin and then my other shadows blend fine. I give it 3/5 for packaging though because I prefer a squeeze tube so I can get ALL the product out, but a doe foot applicator is not terrible. :P

Eyeliner -NYX -matte liquid eyeliner

on 12/4/2017 9:38:00 PM

I bought this product from one of my local drug stores on a whim. I can't quite remember how much it was, but I believe I picked it up for 10-15 bucks at the time. I do like that the brush is very thin, and likely easy to work with if you're well-practiced when it comes to liquid eyeliner. I personally prefer to use an angle brush; I paint the product onto the angle brush and go about my winged-eyeliner look that way, it's a whole thing.

The formula is definitely matte, which I found made it quite dry as a result, meaning I had to work with it very quickly. It caused my eyelashes to clump a bit as a result. My biggest qualm with this eyeliner is that it almost acts like a dry-erase marker. If I went over it with another coat, it would flake off. It seemed to be that if I didn't get it right the first time, there was no going back for a touch-up.

The last time I used it, I got so frustrated with it, I decided to take my makeup off completely and start over again. This stuff is incredibly difficult to remove! It smears everywhere, and it stains. I usually keep the products I buy for a while, hoping I'll find a use for them eventually, if not as part of my daily routine. This product irritated me and my skin so badly, that I inevitably had to chuck it. I love NYX products, but I've had zero luck with their eyeliners thus far. I think I'll stick to their lip and eyebrow products instead.

Loose Powders -NYX -HD Studio Finishing Powder

on 12/4/2017 7:02:00 PM

foto

I repurchased this the second time ... my first jar literally lasted for 2 years (maybe more? Not sure how long this product has been around.) I think some people might not like it because they're using too much. I don't even swirl my kabuki brush into the container. Usually there's a fine dust of the powder in the cap and I swirl my brush in the remnants of that. If need more I take a smidgeon of it on my pinky (like a small dot of it) and put it in the cap and swirl my brush in it. It takes so, so little product to get the result you need. It literally takes the "dust" of the product on your brush to get the airbrushed effect. If you use more than that, things will start looking cakey and white.

I love how this gives an airbrushed look over just concealer on low key days or on top of foundation for more full coverage. It is $10 and I imagine I won't be needing to repurchase until another 2 years. Just be sure you hold your breath when you open the container bc the dust flies up everywhere. That is my only gripe.

Palettes -NYX -Love Contours All

on 12/4/2017 7:01:00 PM

foto

This could be the perfect travel palette if it included a blush shade! I picked this up in a 50% off cosmetics sale but I probably wouldn't pay full price for it.

The shadows have a little kick back but are beautifully pigmented and blend like a dream. The contour shades can easily be used as bronzer with a light hand and the highlighters are smooth, not a glitter bomb but also not a sheer mess.

The eyeshadow pan sizes are tiny though so if this is used regularly, you may go through it quick. However I would recommend this to anyone looking for a travel palette or who is just starting out in makeup and would like to try out different formulas before settling with their favourite.
