Eyeliner -NYX - Vivid Brights Eyeliner

I got this product in the red colour, I love it. It adds a nice touch to my eyeshadow but also looks good on its own. It leaves a matte finish. Especially for the price this is a pretty good product.

Concealers -NYX - HD Photogenic Concealer Wand (All Shades)

I used this for contouring and it was fine for that purpose. No high standards to fullfill because allmost any concealer could do it. Nice color section and good blendability.But then they reformulated it (added coconut oil) and my skin started to break out horribly. So this is no no for me,and I'm not going to buy it ever again. So beware if your skin is acne prone.

Eye Primer -NYX - Proof It Eyeshadow Primer

I've been wearing this every day for a little over a week now and I'm honestly pretty disappointed. I thought with its waterproof claims, that it would be long-wearing and prevent my shadows from creasing. So far, used with different eyeshadows, cream and powder, my eyeshadows will start creasing after just 4 hours. I was hoping it would be a good drugstore option for some of the more expensive primers on the market, but I don't like my results with this.

UPDATE: I've been wearing this for a few weeks now, and have had better results when I let this set and dry down for a few minutes before applying eyeshadow. Previously, I would wait less than a minute and experienced creasing within just a few hours. I find that if I apply this right after I powder my face, and then do the rest of my face makeup (bronzer, blush, highlight, etc) so the primer can set for 3-4 minutes, I don't experience creasing as quickly. It's still not crease-proof though. I definitely still see creasing after about 8 hours, so I haven't changed the rating, but it makes it usable for now.

Brows -NYX - Eyebrow Gel

What a terrible product.
I usually do not buy drugstore makeup because I love to try products before the purchase.
We spontaneously decided to go for beach holidays so I needed a product that will make my thin brows be presented all day long. After some research, I went to Ulta and purchased NYX gel.
First - I've mistaken with color. Actually, I did not, I've taken the single color that was the closest to my natural brows Shade 03 Brunette. I had to go for that one because two lighter colors Blonde (too beige) and Chocolate (too warm) definitely couldn't work. Frankly, when I saw that nothing matches me perfectly I should have just go back home.
But I've bought the product, came back with it, and decided to give it a try. It's very difficult to use. Usually, for the paints in the tubes some container and applicator are provided, but not with this one. This comes alone. You will need to put it on something in order to work with. I did not have anything to put it on so I squeezed the tube and put a bit on my brow brush, then disaster has started. It's impossible to distribute it evenly, and the color that came out of the tube was looking completely black. I did not keep it for long, but when I washed it off my brows were too dark and uneven.
I used to color my brows at home with a special brow dye, so I'm very familiar with the application process. But I must say I have never had such a horrific result.
If you think that none of the colors match you perfectly - walk away. If you like to have long lasting result buy a brow dye instead.


Liquid -NYX - Total Control

This foundation definitely lived up it's hype for me. I LOVE it! I've been using Maybelline's FitMe Foundation for years now but I think I've found a replacement. I have oily to combination skin and I tend to get oily throughout the day with other foundations but not with this one!! I loved the flawless finish it gave, I set it with the NYX Studio Finishing Powder & I couldn't stop looking in the mirror. My makeup looked freshly applied all day. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was the brush NYX recommends. It was okay. I used it throughout the whole application and kinda warmed up to it- but wasn't in love with it. The bottles packaging is nice & sleek. I wish it was a littttle bit bigger, but I'm not too pissed about it. Love this foundation!! Definitely recommend

Great contour for fair to medium skin tones if you like a really cool tone contour but for me I prefer something a little warmer because my undertone is warm,blends flawlessly and lasts on the skin for a fair amount of time

Blush -NYX - HD Blush - Taupe

I hated this as a contour shade. To be fair, grey contours don't look good with my coloring. Honestly, all the NYX blushes I've tried have been patchy, and blended terribly on my skin. I've tried other NYX blushes, but have returned them because they wouldn't blend.

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

foto

Unfortunately this was the first drugstore setting spray (really first setting spray) I ever tried, and it was so bad I didn't try another setting spray for a long time.

The first time I used this is did stop my face from being oily, but the matte look made my makeup look strange and unnatural. The chemical smell is off-putting. The second time I used this it was terrible, my makeup melted off my face, and I'm not sure what went wrong. The third and fourth time I used this it did nothing, but made my face look sticky/strange and smell bad.

Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Oil Control Spray is excellent, I highly recommend it. It gives the matte finish, and makes makeup last longer than usual.

Wet n Wild Photofocus Setting Spray is my favorite. It makes makeup last, but gives a luminous finish. I love that I can have a dewy finish even with oily skin with this product.

Brows -NYX - Micro Brow Pencil

I read somewhere that this is a good dupe for Anastasia Brow Wiz and that is how I bought it.

Works very good, but the lasting power is not the best. You can easily smudge it if you touch your brows.
Very nice color range, I had no problems finding my color.

I would buy it again, but I did not like the fact that it finishes very fast. I used it 4 times a week for a month and it was over.

Lips -NYX - NYX Slip Tease Lip Oil

on 8/24/2017 1:58:00 AM

NYX has found a way to take the traits of their liquid lipsticks with the Slip Tease line: applies mousse-y like Lip Lingerie, feels like Liquid Suede (and equally as thick/heavy, which means it takes for EVER to dry!), and sets to a light feel like a Lip Cream. This did not apply patchy, seep into my lines, or dry crusty; these discomforts were the issues I had with Lip Lingerie. My new HG lipstick, Beyond Basic, is the perfect neutral-warm mid-dark brown that does not look gray on my NC42 skin. I'll prep with Burts Bees, line my lips with Downtown Beauty Suede Matte lipliner (my HG!), and combined, this would be my daily lip routine.

My friend gave this to me because she didn't like it. Which is surprising because she's way lighter than me. But I think she likes a warmer contour. I usually use the Catrice contour powder which is a perfect grey-brown shade. I tried this (I use a fluffly angle brush, don't do super detailed/sharp contour during the day, just a more natural one) and I like it. The catrice one is $7 or $8 and comes with a small pan of highlight, which I don't use. This is $7., But I'd much rather repurchase the Catrice one. Maybe because that one is specifically for contour and this is actually a blush. Although i've never seen anyone wear it as a blush and am curious as to what it looks like? This is a cool greyish brown blush and i'll use it up, am glad I got to try it as i've heard people talking about it forever but won't buy again.

Bad product, after an hour of wearing i get black residue under my eye/it smudges


Contour -NYX - Wonder Stick

I picked this up in place of my clinqiue chubby stick and it is just an OK product, the contour is nice, it blends easy and applies nicely but the highlight is very thick, hard to blend and very very light! if the contour came on its own I probably would repurchase for the price but the highlight is not worth it at all! The good thing about this is there is a wide colour range!

I've used this so many times and I feel like it does absolutely nothing for me. I wanted to like it - it's reasonably cheap and NYX is a reasonably good brand. I'd much rather spend a bit extra on a product that actually works for my skin.
